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 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 INFOMATIVE, 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!

Thanks for the roundup. Toy Story 10AE at CC for me & probably bite the bullet & get The Sting SE there too. That's a nasty opening week price for it though, but nobody's lower.

I want the Innocents, but it'll only be Degrassi S3 this week. You didn't list it, but I am pretty much resigned to getting it at Best Buy anyway; Circuit City never seems to get it in.

It's the official start of the wallet-draining fourth quarter!

Definite buys:
Bela Lugosi Collection
Hammer Collection
Toy Story

Probably getting:
Best of SNL: Gilda Radner

Possible Blind Buy:
Lost...I've never seen it, but EVERONE seems to love it and the set sounds so extras-packed it might be worth it.

Wow. What a week. Big Posted Image and thanks to Mike as always. Putting together this week's list must have been quite a chore.

I've got lots of stuff on my to-buy list this week, but, as is becoming increasingly the case, almost everything I want is coming from online merchants. The days of great B&M deals seem to be in the past. I was really hoping someone would come through with a better price on the Universal 2-disc SEs, but I guess I'll stick with $18.89 (and no tax) for them from Amazon and be happy with the nearly $3 savings over buying them locally.

I will probably snag "Lost" at BB with that RZ deal and bonus disc.

Nothing spectacular at Fry's this week. They have "Lost" at $36.99 (best price if you're not a Reward Zone member) and Crash at $14.99.

P.S. - DVD Empire seems to be the place to get the Fox Studio Classic and Film Noir titles. I've got this week's FFN discs coming to me from them at $8.86 apiece - with free shipping and no tax. That's a $5 saving (including tax) per title over the best B&M price - assuming you can even find them on street date.

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 as always for the list, Mike. Just one tiny glitch that I see. My Best Buy store's online ad lists a $39.99 price for the Millennium Season 3 set (and apparently, so does Patrick's ad). BB may have started playing with regional pricing, but it looks more likely that the daunting list of titles led to a (common to my fingers) cut-and-paste mishap.

Looks like just that title and Doctor Who: The Mind Robber for me, though there are a few other temptations out this week.

As always, thanks Mike & Patrick. Bigger week than I was expecting as I didn't realize Bullwinkle season 3 was out this week - I thought it was later in September. I also didn't realize the SNL First 5 Years doc was this week, but with those prices I'll probably wait for the eventual price drop on that one. With that in mind, my week looks like this:

Lost S1
Doogie S2
Bullwinkle S3

Am I the only one who thinks it's a great week but some bad B&M prices? I know most of this stuff I can do better online. Oh well I'm tapped this week anyways due to the disgusting gas prices, I'll revisit this week at some point later on.

Seems to be some conspiracy to not have any of the new Universal SEs, uh, excuse me, "Legacy Series" on sale. So, no hurry for me. At least the existing To Kill a Mockingbird is pretty decent (though not anamorphic) and I've had an anamorphic copy of The Sting for over a year from R2. I was hoping for a decent price on The Deer Hunter though. The current one is crap. At $20 I guess there is no hurry. Might drop by Wal-Mart and see if there is a good price on it, but since nobody else is doing it, I doubt it.

The first week I've been excited about, well, ever, and no deals on the titles I want. Figures.

Thanks Mike. Posted Image

"The Sting" and "To Kill a Mockingbird" this week only. Bad prices on them, too. Posted Image

I really can't afford to hop on the "Lost" bandwagon right now, so I'll probably be Netflix-ing that down the road to see how I like it.

I think you need to make a correction on the 21 jumpstreet.. its season 3, not season 1.
