Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

$_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that I could not locate a definate price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

I only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o). In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing every DVD. Look, Dave has a lovely wife and a five-year-old son that he is spending time with. So, please don't complain. If there is a title not included in the Roundup that you want to see, just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone...like I do!

Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart prices in the standard Roundup: Wal-Mart sets prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart location. When it comes to Wal-Mart prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Milage May Vary".


--BE CAREFUL!!! Johnny English is available in both OAR and MAR releases! GET THE CORRECT ONE! Annie: Special Anniversary Edition is MAR only (Why, Columbia? Why?) It has been left OFF the RoundUp. And,
Swimming Pool has been released in both an R-rated and an Unrated edition.

--Amazon is featuring free shipping on orders over $25. Restrictions apply.

--Best Buy is offering $15 off if you buy BOTH Mr. Ed - Volume 1 AND Green Acres - Season 1. This brings each title to $15.49 each.

--Best Buy is also offering $28 off if you buy the 8-disc Nightmare on Elm Street Collection Box Set with Freddy vs. Jason. The box is $87.99 separately.

--K-Mart is listing Freddy vs. Jason at $18.99 this week.

--Target is offering $5 off a combined purchase of Feddy vs. Jason and either A Nightmare on Elm Street or Wes Craven's New Nightmare.

Thanks for the roundup! I was only going to buy Green Acres, but $34 combined for both that and Mr. Ed will sell me on both MGM titles (despite MGM's questionable selection of "Best of" episodes on the Mr. Ed set and a complete lack of extras).

The title I'm really looking forward to is Lost In Space. Woo hoo! Good thing I'm a fan of TV on DVD because it would be a lame release week without it!

Everyone be sure to take note of the BB sale prices on the Warner TV boxsets. I paid much more than that for ER, Smallville and The West Wing. Posted Image

According to the prices you have listed, those sets would be $15.49 each after the $15 discount. An even better deal!

Have now added DVD markdowns for this week.

Jim-M: Thanks for the correction. That is why its my daughter who's the math major, not me! :b

Patrick: Thanks for the formatting help. I think I've got it figured out now.

Not sure what the deal is with another release of Bulltproof Monk. Here is Amazon's description of the release. Maybe someone with the old release can compare or someone in-the-know can fill us in.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Thanks for posting this for Dave, Mike. Sadly I have no money, so there is nothing to pick up this week.
I need a new signature.

Since Annie isn't in its proper ratio, nothing this week, although I was looking forward to owning it. Shame.

Thanks for the roundup, Mike, and NO THANKS Colombia for the MAR Annie rerelease.

I'll take the, uh, bullet for Bulletproof Monk. I saw it on Amazon's list of new releases for this week and threw several of those titles at Mike, and he went and took my word for it. No reason for him not to trust me, right? :wink:

My confusion was indeed that it said "Special Edition" on the cover art, and I figured that it was new compared to the version released late last Summer. I didn't realize that the SE was that version, and the price Amazon is charging certainly doesn't reflect a markdown.

Well, I checked MGM's master list of releases this month, and I see that BM isn't on the list. It's not a new release, so this must be the same one as the old release. Sorry for the screw-up, folks. Blame me. Or blame Amazon. Posted Image

MI-5 is a British TV show dealing with Britain's domestic spy division (MI-6 is the international spy division that James Bond works for). It's a very good show. I've seen 2 season's worth on A&E this past year.
