Only by interrogating the other passengers could I hope to see the light, but when I began to question them, the light--as Macbeth would have said-- thickened.

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! The Ladykillers is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one. Soul Plane is available in both R and NR versions...get the one that’s right for you.

**Special Note** I have included prices for the DVD release of Judgment at Nuremberg in this RoundUp even though more than half my sources say the release date was shifted from September 7 to September 14. I will err on the side of the HTF which says in its review HERE that the date is September 7.

--Resident Evil is being advertised widely as having a free movie ticket for RE: Apocalypse.

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

--Best Buy is having a deal on season sets of Alias. Alias Season sets 1 & 2 are available for $49.99. Season 3 is on sale for $39.99. Buy any two sets and save $10.

--Best Buy is offering up a Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow sneak peek DVD with the purchase of ANY entertainment software.

--Best Buy is also advertising, this week, an exclusive on-pack preview of “Saw” on packages of The Punisher (including two Saw theatrical trailers, also a preview of “Open Water”, and a bonus on-pack Punisher collectible comic book. Bring your wheelbarrow.

--Circuit City is advertising on The Punisher a FREE Punisher comic book and a three track CD featuring Finger 11 and more.

Ouch, a lot of titles this week. Too bad, I probably end up getting this game I rented for the PS2 instead. Besides, I still haven't bought second season of Alias or six season of Buffy yet. Posted Image
I need a new signature.

The Star Trek Generations SE has been recalled over an error in the fetaures list (rather than to correct an allegedly poor transfer). It has been reported that some e-tailers shipped the DVD before the recall, but I would assume that most B&Ms won't have it on Tuesday.

Damn, the amount of releases I want this week is insane. I need:

Dawn of the Dead ultimate edition
Terror Train
The Sentinel (double dip)
The Funhouse (double dip)
The Alfred Hitchcock set
The Punisher
Murder on the Orient Express
The Twilight Zone season one
The Legacy
The Boston Strangler

I'll also be ordering the Canadian disc of Ginger Snaps Back.

Dawn of the Dead

Ladykillers
Murder on the Orient Express
Rounders

Excellent release week. Thanks for the update.

Wish I could be adding Everwood as well. My boycott stands Warner. If you can't give us the OAR for the first season then I'm not going to waste my money on any of the season sets. No C.S.I.(Paramount), No West Wing (Warner), No O.C.(Warner), and No Everwood(Warner)!!! It's gotten to the point with Warner that someone puts out the press release with a random AR and then they find an unnamed person to back them up on the butchered AR they put in the press release.

The Star Trek Generations SE has been recalled over an error in the fetaures list (rather than to correct an allegedly poor transfer). It has been reported that some e-tailers shipped the DVD before the recall, but I would assume that most B&Ms won't have it on Tuesday.


I'm surprised that with this recall Paramount didn't cover all their bases as far as advertising goes: I saw a commercial for it last night (Saturday), still saying it was available on Tuesday.

Target has a couple of titles that weren't listed in the circular that should be available in all stores on Tuesday:
--Alfred Hitchcock Collection (the set, I don't believe they have the individual title) $79.99
--Columbo Season One $39.99
--Magnum PI Season One $39.99

Definitely The AHC and Columbo for me, probably Murder on the Oriet Express as well, and still gotta pick up I Love Lucy Season Two and The Night Stalker/Night Strangler set from a couple weeks back!

OUCH!!!

Does anyone have an official price on The Ladykillers at Target? I read on DVDTalk that it should be $15.99.

My wallet is already writhing in pain...

Also new from Fox this week is the excellent 1992 TV film Doing Time On Maple Drive starring Jim Carrey and William McNamara.

Best Buy and Circuit City list it for $12.99 so fans can toss those old VHS recordings for good.
My Blu-ray collection so far:Casino Royale, The Fifth Element, 300, Unforgiven, T2, The Descent, The Road Warrior, The Untouchables, Purple Rain, Deliverance

Huge week:

Hitchcock Box set (even though the box set includes 2 films I don't want, and 1 I already have, it'll still be cheaper than buying individually.)

Columbo Season 1 (finally! yeah!)

Judgment at Nuremburg (hopefully this is still coming)

Third Man on the Mountain (a great Disney flick finally available. Posted Image I know you don't list everything, but I was surprised you didn't include this one)

Hopefully Costco will have some of this cheap like Hitchcock and Columbo.

Thanks Mike!
