It’s a jolly holiday with Mary. No wonder that it’s Mary that we love.

Aragorn: We have time. Every day Frodo moves closer to Mordor.
Gandalf: Do we know that?
Aragorn: What does your heart tell you?
Gandalf: That Frodo is alive. Yes. Yes, he's alive.

Titles included in collections in the above grid:

The Ben Stiller Collection: Meet The Parents, Mystery Men, Reality Bites, Along Came Polly.

Godzilla 3-Pack: Godzilla: Tokyo S-O-S, Son of Godzilla, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla.

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".

Wow, Patrick!

You must've had your finger on the trigger....ready to squeeze! Posted Image

Some of the prices this week are great! CostCo (and hopefully other warehouse clubs) and Coconuts on Top Gun. The ROTK EE set has some great prices. I, Robot...even Mary Poppins ($17.99 at CC!)...

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!

Thanks, as always, guys.

Quantum Leap's the only definite for me this week. Family Guy: Freakin' Sweet Collection and Newlyweds:S1 are "we'll see"s. And thanks for including the Coconuts prices, Mike. Saves me the trouble when I pick up my paper in the morning. Posted Image

No fruitcakes listed in this week's roundup though? Posted Image

Thanks Mike. I'll be using the roundup for 5 B&M purchases: Top Gun SE w/BB bonus disc, Mary Poppins SE, Meet The Parents SE, Collateral & Princess Diaries 2. Probably pick all up at BB with some pricematching. LOTR:ROTK EE is supposed to ship from Barnes & Noble.com. Luckily I'll have plenty to keep me busy while I wait for it to arrive.

Star Trek TOS 3 and The Return of the King for me!


I'm surprised that there aren't bigger sales this close to Christmas. This is my first year of seriously collecting DVD's - should I expect any blowout sales right before Christmas, or in the after-Christmas sales?

Hey Mike and Patrick,

There really should be a disclaimer that pops up for anyone that posts to any round up thread that has a big "THANKS" in it.

You guys do an awesome job week in and week out, and though I do no post each week, I wanted to say thanks for all of your efforts. You make my job and a lot of others easier each week.

This week it's LOTR:ROTK EE and I Robot definitely. When I'm in the store who knows what else I'll pick up.

Thanks again,
Tommy

Good roundup so far Mike, even so why is there a giant text box where the Mary Poppin picture is purpose to be? I didn't know Miss Poppins is now using AIM instead of visiting young children. Posted Image

Anyway, it's a busy week, with the King Returning, that flying nanny who can sing, and a hitman who looks a lot like a ace pilot...except he blonde. Posted Image
I need a new signature.

I passed on getting the new version of The Princess Diaries earlier in the year thinking for sure that BB would do a 2 for $25 deal when Royal Engagement came out. Very surprised not to see it... looks like I'll be putting these purchases off longer until the price drops. I'll be getting just ROTK EE and Mary Poppins SE.

Many thanks, as usual, to Mike and Patrick!

Mike,

I think the Family Guy collection should be "Freakin' Sweet" instead of "Freakin' Smart" Posted Image Thanks for the hard work, as always!

I'm with Jason V.

Just the ROTK Giftset (hell, have the other two too) :P)
& Top Gun SE (never bought the original, now I'm glad I didn't)

Looks like if I go to BB I'll save $3.00 over going to CC.


Thanks as always. I don't always post in the thread but I'm here every Sunday morning.



(I'd also like the Rocky "Anthology", but I thought there was a box set already, off to the Software section to find out what's going on)
