Titles in Collections listed in the above RoundUp:

Fritz Lang Epic Collection: Spies, Metropolis, Woman in the Moon, Die Nibelungen.

Marx Brothers Silver Screen Collection: Animal Crackers, The Cocoanuts, Duck Soup, Horse Feathers, Monkey Business.

W.C. Fields Comedy Collection: The Bank Dick, International House, It’s a Gift, My Little Chickadee, You Can’t Cheat an Honest 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 EXTREMELY CAREFUL! The Stepford Wives is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one. The Hillside Strangler is available in both R and Unrated versions...get the one that’s right for you..

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

--Best Buy is offering its typical deals on buying Friends season sets in volume. Seasons 1, 2, 3, 4, & 8 are $29.99. Seasons 5, 6, & 7 are $35.99. Buy any two season sets and save $15. Buy all eight sets and save $120!. (According to Frezon Lousy Math, Inc.: 5 x $30 = $150 and 3 x $36 = $108. $150 + $108 = $258. $258 - $120 = $138. $138/8 = $17.25 per set. Not bad.)

--The two-packs of Blade/Blade 2 are being advertised to include a preview of Blade Trinity (In theaters 12/10/04).

--The sets of Barbershop and Legally Blonde are advertised as being “loaded with extras”.

--Best Buy is offering a $5 Disney CD-ROM Gift Card with the purchase of Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas and any other Disney DVD. CD-ROM Gift Card “includes: wallpaper, screensaver, home video, theatrical trailers, printable coupons and more.” Minimum 100 per store. No rainchecks.

--Best Buy is including a bonus disc with its copies of Star Trek: Voyager Season 5…"Ships Of The Delta Quadrant".

--Best Buy is also advertising Shrek 2 at $16.99 and offering a purchase of Chicken Run ($14.99) for just $4.99 with the purchase of Shrek 2.

--Best Buy also has its exclusive Elton John 4-DVD set Dream Ticket for $39.99. They’ll also give you a $5 gift card if you buy both Dream Ticket ($39.99) and Elton’s new CD Peachtree Road ($9.99)

--Target shows cover art for both The Stepford Wives and Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas in their Sunday flyer without prices listed…although both are located adjacent to The Clearing which is priced at $15.99. I would not be surprised if both those titles would go for $15.99 as well, although I am hesitant to post it because that would be the lowest known price for The Stepford Wives.

Hey Mike, you forgot these specials at Costco.

As for real-live specials, I'm waiting on GWTW and the Marxists. Sadly my favourite WC Fields isn't in the set (Never Give A Sucker An Even Break).

Hmmm...looks like a slow week then. While I might get Gone with the Wind, but half the time my purchase choice in these threads tends to changed greatly. Like last week I said that I would get Shrek 2 and 1, but instead I get Invader Zim volume 2 and Mulan SE.

Good job on the round up Mike.
I need a new signature.

You don't waste any time in posting the Roundup, eh, Mike? I work till midnight, go over my friend's place for a while, come home and it's posted before 2am. Posted Image

Anyway, nothing for me this week. A break between last week and the next couple big weeks.

Well this week I'm picking up the Britney Spears dvd. I might also get Bridget Jones, Lost Junction, Stepford Wives or Gone With the Wind. It just depends on my amount of funding

Thanks Mike.

There's only two films I want on that list, Duck Soup and It's A Gift. At this point I'm going to hold off, hoping I can get them later as individual releases without having to pay for 8 movies I don't want to get 2 that I do want.

Dennis:

Why didn't you include the pricing from Sam's Club and BJ's Wholesale? We have to be informed consumers! Think they will have any Black Friday deals on this category? Posted Image

Thanks for the prices, Mike. Nothing for me this week. I was leaning towards GWTW at Target (or BB price match with Rewards points), but my brother will probabaly pick it up and I can borrow it. I guess there will be a few in the coming weeks that will spark my interest! Posted Image
