At this solemn moment, in the presence of this tribunal, which is the representative of human justice, before France, before the whole world, I swear that Dreyfus is innocent! By all that I have won, by all that I have written to spread the spirit of France, I swear that he is innocent. May all that melt away; may my name perish if Dreyfus be not innocent. He is innocent.

I believe God made me for a purpose, but He also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.

(CC) listed after a title in the above grid = new Criterion Collection release.

Individual Titles contained in collections listed above:

Karate Kid Collection: The Karate Kid, The Karate Kid Part II, The Karate Kid Part III, The Next Karate Kid.

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! Mr. 3000 AND Ray AND Vanity Fair are all available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one.

And to further add to the confusion, Ray is available in the following forms: 1-disc OAR, 1-disc MAR, 1-disc OAR with DVS/Blind & Low Vision Enhanced, and 2-disc SE OAR only.

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

--Best Buy is offering a deal on a Best Buy Exclusive DVD. Genius: A night for Ray Charles as seen on CBS. A tribute to Ray Charles with performances by today’s top artists, including Usher, Elton John, Norah Jones, Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder and more. Buy Genius: A Night for Ray Charles ($15.99) on the same receipt with Ray ($15.99) and get them 2/$25.

--Best Buy is offering another 2/$25 deal if you buy The Grudge ($15.99)and Ju-On ($15.99) on the same receipt.

--For those of you who are planning on getting both Mr. 3000 ($17.99) and Shall We Dance? (2004) ($17.99), Best Buy will let you save $6 if you buy them both on the same receipt.

Mike, Patrick, thanks again for all the info!

Looks like just The Brak Show for me this week!

If anyone can tip me off as to what Target is selling this for, I would be much appreciative.

Thanks Mike.

A pretty heavy week.

Cheers, Frasier, Taxi and I Love Lucy. Plus The Palm Beach Story (finally).

Since I'll be spending all that money, it almost makes me happy that I'll be passing on the Karate Kid, since the first film isn't available by itself. Posted Image

Karate Kid collection for me, and thats it. Between the new releases and the sales Best Buy and Circuit City had last week, I ended up with 13 purchases last week. I am glad this is a slow week.

All I gotta say this week is...Wonderfalls! Hot damn, one of my most anticipated releases. This is one show everyone should at least try out, if not a blind buy, rent it or borrow it from a friend.

Probably Ray and Oz for me as well. Thanks Mike and Patrick!

Hmm, so do we have to remove Mike and Patrick's posts because they were posted 1 minute early? Seriously though, thanks guys.

Karate Kid collection, Penn & Teller, and I think I might swing by Target and pick up Miracle and Big Fish.

Does anyone know if Mark Twain's America comes with 3-d glasses or if it's made for field sequential goggles?

I am SO tempted to get I Love Lucy S3, but I have read that S1 is being re-issued in slimcases and at a lower price. Can anyone confirm this or give me a date as to when it will occur?

Thanks again, as usual. Great post, and one that I always rely on...

Anyways, a lighter-than-average week for me (thankfully). After last week (Predator 2, Sky Captain, Mean Creek, Superman: S1, Batman: V2, MacGyver: S1 - plus various other discs), I'm glad to have a slow one.

This week:

Sealab: Season Two
Wonderfalls: Complete Series
Ray: 2-disc SE

Maybe The Karate Kid Collection. Maybe The Grudge, 'though I may hold off and wait for the "unrated" verson.
