The Disclaimer
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".

The Specials

**BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Sahara (2005) is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one!

--Best Buy is advertising an EXCLUSIVE bonus DVD on their copies of Sahara. Features over 20 minutes of extras, including “making of” the camel chase, 2 animatics and 3 storyboards. Minimum 9 per store. No rainchecks.

--Best Buy also has EXCLUSIVE DVD art PLUS trading cards on-pack with its copies of Fire and Ice Minimum 3 per store. No rainchecks.

--Best Buy also has an EXCLUSIVE Chris Farley bobblehead doll on-pack with its copies of Tommy Boy: Holy Schnike Edition. Minimum 10 per store. No rainchecks.

The Appeal

Any visitor to the Weekly RoundUp should be sure to check out the new Main Portal Page of the Home Theater Forum….FOR TWO VERY GOOD REASONS!

First: Parker & Ron have re-formatted the Portal Page to include exclusive HT industry news you won’t find in any place on the HTF! Second: You will help support the Home Theater Forum and keep it up and running.

Operating the HTF is not free for Parker and Ron. That is why there is advertising throughout the forum and there has been the occasional membership fund drive. THIS IS AN EASY WAY FOR YOU TO HELP…AND IT’S FREE OF CHARGE…AND INFORMATIVE, TOO! Posted Image

If you simply link to the Portal Page when you start your visits to the HTF, that act alone wILL bring revenue to the forum. While it would also be nice if you wanted to click on some of the advertisers’ links and check out their deals and sales (that form of “window shopping” would bring even more revenue to the forum), the simple act of landing on the Portal Page registers a “hit” or “impression” that creates revenue for the HTF.

So, if you’ve been “sneaking in” to the HTF through links to your favorite thread or forum, please take an extra second of your time and land first on the HTF Portal Page. You’ll see the new Industry News sections AND help out financially. THANKS!

The Markdowns

Just two for me:

Blues Brothers: 25th Anniversary Ed
Clueless: Whatever Edition

By the way..., the "Ice Age" that CC has for sale is shown as the 2 disc SE, which is OOP/Dcnt'd. $9.99 is a fairly good deal.

I wasn't going to buy it anyway, but I'm surprised to see Roseanne in the Weekly Roundup, since it's only the cut, syndicated versions, which is as bad as pan & scan, which you don't show prices for. Just Gumball Rally & Pretty Woman for me this week.

Thanks for the roundup Mike. Oddly enough, the only thing worth getting is...Pirates of Silcon Valley. It was a pretty good made for tv movie about the computer operating system wars years ago. Posted Image
I need a new signature.

Hero At Large, definitely. I may have a $5 RZ cert. coming to use for that. I won't even bother looking at Circuit City. They don't seem to rush to get catalog titles. Interested in Tommy Boy, but not right away.

Only CYE S4 for me.

In addition to the syndicated (cut) episodes on the "Roseanne" set, be aware that "House, MD" is in NON-anamorphic widescreen. Two great shows that deserve much, much better. Posted Image
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.

Hero at Large!? Wonderful! Completely out of nowhere! I loved this as a comic book reading kid and can't wait to see it again. -paul ...and no doubt I'll have to ask a blue shirt at BB to go dig it out since they won't have even unpacked it

I was hoping Best Buy or someplace would've done a CYE sale. I put off getting 1, 2 and 3 (I started watching it a few mos ago) thinking there'd be a nice sale come the release of season 4.

well, Roseanne does have a huge audience. A bigger audience than some of the other tv-on-dvd titles coming out on Tuesday. No offense to "Chef" fans, but it'd be odd to see that on the list yet not Roseanne, which was a much more popular show and still is.

Thanks again for the round-up! Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I need anything this week.
