I'm not a failure. I'm a dentist, a REAL dentist! And I'll tell you what I'm gonna do! I'm gonna spread dental health across the West like a plague!

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. 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 & I do!

Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the standard Roundup: they set 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/Sam’s Club location. When it comes to Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".


**Amazing! It seems as if all of this week’s releases have been released in their OAR!!! Although why do I think I’ll be hearing from some of you learned people about the Disney/Buena Vista titles?!

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

--Best Buy is offering a deal on season sets of Six Feet Under. Save $30 instantly, when you buy both Seasons 1 & 2 ($69.99 each). $70 + $70 = $140. $140 – 30 = $110. $110/2 = $55.

Nothing this week, unless I happen to be out and I get that "burning a hole in my pocket" feeling...then possibly Big Top Pee-wee or the Noir Collection. A good way to save up for a heavy Aug/Sept.

I see that the BestBuy and Amazon websites list the Chanthology for $69.99 and $48.97, respectively - the prices in the round-up must be just for the individual titles, I suppose.

Thanks!

Out of the Past
Criss Cross
First Monday in October
This Gun For Hire

I would have added Wiseguy: Prey for the City, but once again, those cheap bastards have apparently replaced real rock tunes with muzak cause they're too cheap to pony up the money. Posted Image

Great price at Circuit City on the Film Noir collection, but I'd bet anything that not one of the Circuit Cites by me (metro-Detroit) ever has it in stock.

Thanks Mike! I'm picking up the Charlie Chan Chanthology (however you may want to check up on the prices in the Roundup; they look too low).

I got mine through DDD for $45 and change.

Getting the NOIR collection.
I'd plan on picking up "Take the Money and Run" but I though it was MAR? What was decided on that?
Once I hear a report on the quality of the Don Knotts discs, I may have to pick those up too.

Dang, Belle Noiseuse is so darned expensive...and the reviews from DVDBeaver are less than flattering (though not horrible). I wonder whether to wait for an admittedly unlikely good release by a major studio, or take the plunge with this release...

Amen, brother. I have this pre-ordered with Amazon, but would rather just pick one up. However, I have no faith whatsoever in Circuit City to actually have this item to hand on Tuesday.

Maybe Costco might come through - we won't know until Tuesday.
