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! (Mike's SOP)

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".



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

--Best Buy is offering bonus DVD with Troy, YMMV on finding them.

--Best Buy is offering a 2-for-$20 deal if you buy Harold and Kumar with 1 one of the following: Cheech & Chong's Up in Smoke, Cheech and Chong's Nice Dreams, or How High.

--Best Buy is offering a FREE Exclusive DVD Buyer's Guide (In store only. Min. 100 per store. No rainchecks)

(Thanks for putting up with a fill-in effort as I hold down the fort for Mike. I'll try to fill in more prices later as I get them!)

Happy New Year to DVD bargain hunters everywhere!

I didn't see Troy at the movies. I would guess its a good pickup for only $14.99 at CC. May be slightly cheaper at Walmart later in the day.

Patrick--Thanks for all the effort when Mike isn't here. Always, always, always my first stop on Sunday mornings (or late Saturday night...take your pick). Nothing, fortunately. I might pick up What Dreams May Come for that cheap price, but other than that, I think I'm on hiatus until Farscape next week (??). Gotta save up the pennies (and tax rebates) for an iPod...and to pay for school. Happy New Year all!!

Patrick, here's one you missed - the new SE of Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (w/ bonus disc) at BB for $19.99.

Thanks for filling in for Mike!
Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.
* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.
* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Thanks, Patrick. Here's a correction, though:


Circuit City's price is $49.99, not $12.99. Too bad, though! Posted Image

Well after so many weeks of good dvds to get...it time for a much needed break. Thankfully they let us off this week by not having anything I would like to purchase (CSI Miami would be purchased if I had the first season). Thanks anyway, Patrick, Mike, and that Daveguy.
I need a new signature.

Thanks for the work, Patrick. Just Harold & Kumar this week (and possibly God, Devil, & Bob - if it's a decent price at Wal-Mart, i.e. less than the Roundup prices).
