(CC) after a title = New release in the Criterion Collection.

Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

Boris Karloff – Icon of Horror Collection: The Boogie Man Will Get You, The Black Room, The Man They Could Not Hang, Before I Hang.

The Disclaimer
Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

"LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means 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, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don't get paid for this, and I don't have the time to list 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!

Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. They set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

The Specials

**BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! American Dreamz AND The Break-Up AND The Omen AND Over the Hedge are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one(s)! Rest Stop is being released in rated and unrated versions….get the one that’s right for you! Posted Image

Thanks for the great work as usual, Mike. Criterion has a second title coming out this week, Alfonso Cuaron's Solo Con Tu Pareja. In addition to the two Criterions, I'll be getting Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Billy Wilder Speaks, They All Laughed, and, of course, Reds.

what's with the (1935) on the Break-up? Is there an older movie or is this a typo? Note Amazon has it for $16.99 now.

Thanks Mike and Patrick!

Reds for $12.99? Count me in!

Also, it looks like I will have to pick up Feast since I really enjoyed the whole Project Greenlight trainwreck. Gulager!... Gulager!... Gulager!

K-Mart is advertising "Over the Hedge" as a low price DVD and includes a Plush Hammy ($7.99 value). My 4-year old granddaughter probably would prefer that to the book, although she loves books too. Anyone know if the Circuit City book is targeted to young children?

It's the week after. Right now, Amazon appears to have the exclusive for the partial set (for those who bought Vol 1). It's $46.09. Thanks for the Round-Up guys. It looks like a breather for me before the onslaught that starts next week. Steve

The new "Omen" box set has a pretty sweet price. I have no desire to see the remake, though I find it annoying when people refer to such DVD's as "coasters" (I would never buy it on it's own but I'll give it a spin since it's included in the box set). With or without the redundant remake this set is a steal for $35. Between this and the similarly-priced "Exorcist" box set it's a good month for horror DVD's.
Don't you ever, EVER compare me to "Family Guy," you hear me Kyle? Compare me to "Family Guy" again and so help me, I will kill you where you stand!

Do you have any idea what it's like? Everywhere I go: "Hey Cartman you must like 'Family Guy,' right?" "Hey, your sense of humor reminds me of...

Question about the $7.49 "Christine" at CC. Instead of the usual cover art, it had the current SE cover art surrounded by a purple border wherein there is a label that says "Sci Fi (as in the Sci-Fi channel logo) Essentials" There is also a sticker on the packaging that says "See Inside to find out how to unlock all new special feartures" The back of the case has the SE listing of special features (Commentary, Deleted scenes and featurettes) Has anyone seen this type of packaging anywhere else. Is this DVD any different from the regular packaged version?

Nice to see Feast finally make a public appearance. I'm not a huge horror guy, but I loved Project Greenlight!
