The clown with his pants falling down; Or the dance that's a dream of romance; Or the scene where the villain is mean. That's Entertainment!

It might be a fight like you see on the screen; a swain getting slain for the love of a queen.
Some great Shakespearean scene -- where a ghost and a prince meet and everyone ends in mincemeat.

–Music by: Arthur Schwartz/Lyric by: Howard Dietz (That’s Entertainment – 1974)

Note: “(JL)” listed after a title in this week’s grid means it is one of the new releases featuring Jerry Lewis.

Titles included in multiple sets listed in the above price grid:

Elizabeth Taylor Signature Collection: National Velvet, Father of the Bride, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Butterfield 8.

Hepburn & Tracy Signature Collection: Woman of the Year, Pat and Mike, Adam’s Rib, Spencer Tracy Legacy.

John Wayne Signature Collection: Stagecoach, The Searchers, Rio Bravo, The Cowboys.


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! Day After Tomorrow AND Raising Helen are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one.

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

--Best Buy is advertising an exclusive bonus DVD on its packages of The Day After Tomorrow. Includes behind-the-scenes footage! Also includes $10 coupon good for Alien Quadrilogy, Die Hard: Ultimate Collection, Bruce Lee: The Master Collection, The Action Pack and The Farrelly brothers Collection. Minimum 175 per store. No rainchecks.

--Best Buy is also advertising bonus DVDs on its packages of Ren & Stimpy Uncut: Seasons 1 & 2 and Ultimate Jordan ($23.99). They do NOT say these are Best Buy exclusives.

The Ren & Stimpy Bonus DVD is a 44-minute Season 3 preview disc.

The Ultimate Jordan disc is the “Major 1988 slam dunk contest. 833 minutes, including Jordan’s top five games in their entirety.”

-------------------------
The latest markdowns according to DavisDVD:

EFFECTIVE: October 12, 2004 (Studio/Titles/New SRP)

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!

nice job there mike.

in the k-mart ad it has low price next to day after tomorrow, but it is "attached" to a dvd called "dragon" with something else in the title that i cant read. well that dvd is $14.99.

so we'll have to keep an eye on that one.

Wow, I didn't know Aladdin was 420 dollars, Patrick. I must got a sweet deal at Target for 15. Posted Image

Anyway, this week is pretty dead for me, as Invader Zim is the only thing worth picking up, even so I failed to get the second volume last time (when I was going to get it, Wal-Mart only had the first volume still). So I might just get them both, or just buy Friday the 13th from last week instead.

Thanks for the round up Mike, and good job Patrick. Posted Image

Just a quick note that 5 of the 32 episodes in the Ren & Stimpy collection are cut, despite the "UNCUT" label on the packaging. See the thread in the TV section for more details.


I'll be picking up all 10 JL movies. Been waiting a looong time for some of these.

I also wish there was a Jerry Lewis box set. Hopefully I can use this list in the store to try to find all the titles. I'd like some other stuff to but I'm focusing on video games right now.

Is anyone else playing "Name the M-G-M stars" in that picture I posted in Post #1?

Not delayed. Due out this week. Its a reasonably-priced re-release. bb.com lists it at $11.99 and cc.com lists it at $12.99.

Nothing more than what I posted in Post #1. HERE is a link to the minimal info on the disc.

Note to Patrick: As our ol' friend Rodney Dangerfield used to say...."This is a tough room!" Posted Image

Looks like it's BB this week. Especially nice since it looks as if there are double reward zone points for DVD purchases.
