"Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by this sun of York. And all the clouds that lower'd upon our house in the deep bosom of the ocean buried. Now are brows bound with victorious wreaths, our bruised arms hung up for monuments, our stern alarums changed to merry meetings, our dreadful marches to delightful measures."
--Sir Lawrence Olivier as Richard III (1955)

For those who can’t understand my shorthand of some of the titles in the grid:

Big Bro&H.C. w/ Janis = Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin: Nine Hundred Nights
Halfaouine:BoyofTerra = Halfaouine: Boy of the Terraces
LI Cannibal Massacre = Long Island Cannibal Massacre
Moscow Does Not... = Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears
Undertones:Teen. Kicks = Undertones: Teenage Kicks

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 definite 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 Dave does!

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 Mileage May Vary".


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

--BE CAREFUL! The Missing AND Matchstick Men are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one.

--Best Buy, this week, is offering the opportunity to buy either Spy Kids 1 or Spy Kids 2 for $9.99 when you buy Spy Kids 3-D for $16.99.

--Also at Best Buy this week there is a limited supply bonus disc if you buy Star Trek Voyager Season 1 for $99.99.

--Best Boy is also offering deals on the season sets of Oz. This week’s Season 3 is available for $54.99. Seasons 1 & 2 are each available for $64.99. However, you may also buy any two seasons and save $20. Buy all three seasons and save $50! That’s a great deal – you are practically getting an entire season free.

--At Circuit City, Spy Kids 3-D is offered at $15.99. Spy Kids 1 & Spy Kids 2 are both available at $14.99 each. However, you can buy any two Spy Kids movies for $25 …OR…all three for just $35. Another great deal!

Not much this week think I'll rent Matchstick Men. Already Got the Superbowl disk from someone early. It's a great disk it has an Hour Plus Highlight show of the Pats season and all the Playoff and Super Bowl Games. Media Day overage. After game interviews . And the Entire Super Bowl Broadcast Minus Commercials and Janet's Breast.


Think I'll look for the Chapelle show this wee that's about it.

Looks like I'll only be buying Spy Kids 3D. I'll be passing on Dick Van Dyke due to the fact that the slimy, sleazy weasels at Image are still refusing to give me my rebate check from buying seasons 1 & 2. Posted Image

Thanks Mike. You've done a great job with the Round-Up since taking it over. You had mighty big shoes to fill, and you fill them quite nicely!

I'll be picking up the Dick Van Dyke set. I know your Best Buy price came from their online site. I was surprised that their Sunday paper circular didn't include Season 3 in their ad. Gee, I wonder if all the flak from the poor way that the S1 and S2 rebates were handled had something to do with that??

Thanks Mike!

I wasnt sure if it was the entire game or a NFL films packaged game. This sold me looks good.

I'll be buying The Dick Van Dyke Show season 3, but only after those bastards mail me my rebate check for seasons 1 and 2. It's been well over 8 weeks, and Image has yet to deliver the goods. It would be nice if it came in the mail this week, so I could get season 3 from BB for $29.99!

Also, don't forget, everyone -- the fascinating documentary Wisconsin Death Trip is released this week.

ST: Voyager doesn't come out until Tuesday?? I saw this at a store almost two weeks ago!!

Thanks, Mike. And thanks, Patrick, for the circular deals. Nice to see Saturday Night Fever coming down from the $14.99 price to join Grease this week. Perhaps I'll finally grab those two titles.

Amazon has updated the listing for it. Looks like it got delayed till March 23rd.

Anyone who lives near a Mejer they are listing Matchstick Men for $15.99 and the ad says available in both Full and Wide versions. I might just take the ad and pricematch at Best Buy to avoid any problems.

Here's the link to the Benny Collection at Amazon.com . Not much info, Dave would probably know more--if he gets a chance to pop in. There are similar sets listed for Burns & Allen and Milton Berle -- all from Koch Video.

**EDIT** If Dave can't come to the RoundUp, we'll take the RoundUp to Dave. Here's a link to the similar Milton Berle Collection at TVShowsonDVD.com . Again, not much info, but a little more.

I was REALLY surprised when I was putting this week's list together about the prices for Camp. I, too, have noticed that there are fewer and fewer titles coming in under the benchmark of $19.99. And now it seems as if some are destined to stay above that mark. And, Camp is not even a two disc set! It's MSRP is $29.99! And here are its features:
• Theatrical trailer(s)
• Deleted and extended scenes
• "The Making of Camp" featurette
• Live cast performance
• Widescreen anamorphic format
Not a heck of a lot. Enough for me, certainly. I'm just surprised at the price, that's all.

This is hysterical. This very same thought was also running through my mind as I was putting the RoundUp together. Where are the advertised specials on this set--which I believe has done very well in sales? As someone who has been waiting for a great bargain to pounce on these sets, I was watching closely for the kind of deals advertised this week for Oz season sets and the Spy Kids series. Bummer.

It's the Chappelle Show purchase for me. It is worth it just for his blind man in the KKK skit, alone.
