Spock, the women on your planet are logical. No other planet in the galaxy can make that claim.

Titles in the Collections listed in the above RoundUp:

Orloff Collection: The Awful Dr. Orloff, Dr. Orloff’s Monster, Revenge in the House of Usher, Orloff and the Invisible Man.



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".


**BE CAREFUL! Passion of the Christ AND Twisted are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one.

--Amazon continues to offer free shipping on orders over $25. Restrictions apply.

--Best Buy says…if you buy Season 2 of Rocky and Bullwinkle from them, they’ll give you 3 FREE 20 oz. bottles of Coke (or any Coca-Cola product.). So, if you’re thirsty, you know where to go.

--Best Buy is also doing a combo deal on Lion King 2 ($17.99) and another Disney release Brother Bear ($17.99). Buy them both and save $5. $18 + $18 = $36. $36 - $5 = $31. $31/2 = $15.50

--Target is also doing a combo deal on Lion King 2 ($19.99), but with the original Lion King ($19.99). Save $5 when you buy them both. $20 + $20 = $40. $40 - $5 = $35. $35/2 = $17.50. (As always, all calculations courtesy of Frezon Lousy Math, Inc) Coupon located on Lion King 2. Quantity limited. No rain checks.

-------------------------

The latest markdowns according to DavisDVD:

EFFECTIVE: August 31, 2004 (Studio/Titles/New SRP)

20th Century Fox

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!

Rocky & Bullwinkle, Passion of the Christ, and the two new Strawberry Shortcake DVD's for me (well, those last two are for my daughters). Anyone else interested in getting the Strawberry Shortcake DVD's should be able to get them at Target for 9.99.

I just realized I'm gonna' be totally broke by the end of Fall! * Groan *

This week: Star Trek: TOS Season 1 and I Love Lucy Season 2. (Both originally produced by Desilu Studios, BTW!)

Next week: Magnum PI Season 1, Columbo Volume 1, Star Trek: Generations CE.

Of course, we've got this little Space Opera Trilogy coming up in just a few weeks ... and then all of this Summer's blockbusters start to roll out!

Oh, well: Nobody said that hobbies are supposed to be cheap!

I'm now glad that I put off buying the Star Trek TOS disks...this new set is so much cheaper. The original DVDs were 2 episodes for $15 street - the first season that way would have cost $210. Posted Image Costco's price is as good as the online vendors.

Since our politicians are currently stuck in the 1960's, why shouldn't our science fiction DVDs? Posted Image

Also gang, don't forget that Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Essentials streets 8/31. Although many have "Manos: Hands of Fate" already (I put off buying it), another one of the series most popular episodes "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" makes its home video debut. DDD has it for only $14.94.
