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.

Thanks Mike and Patrick! Finally, some new titles to purchase this week! Madame Curie Silence of the Lambs CE And, I'd be all over Angels in the Outfield if I could buy it b&m. I guess I'll have to wait on that one.

Arghh, with Best Buy charging $25 for the "Silence" CE and $20 for the "Hannibal Lecter Collection" that pretty much confirms that the box set includes 1-disc editions of "Silence" and "Hannibal" (which isn't surprising considering how everyone's been listing it as "3-disc") Looks like I'll be picking up both the CE for obvious issues (new transfer and extras) and the HLC for the R1 debut of the theatrical cut of "Manhunter" in widescreen. Looks like this is what you'll have to buy to have a complete Lecter DVD collection in R1: Manhunter: Anchor Bay 2-disc LE for faux-theatrical cut, extras and director's cut Anchor Bay 1-disc restored director's cut (actually a different cut than the other DC, plus Michael Mann commentary) Hannibal Lecter Collection w/ true theatrical cut The Silence of the Lambs: MGM CE Criterion (for commentary and other misc. supplements including exclusive deleted scenes) *(Hannibal Lecter Collection includes redundant single-disc edition) Hannibal MGM Special Edition *(Hannibal Lecter Collection includes redundant single-disc edition) Red Dragon Universal 2-disc Director's Edition
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...

I went to Amazon's site this morning to order Angels in the Outfield, and it states that title is currently unavailable -- does anybody know if there is a problem now with this title??

Nothing new for me this week (AGAIN!!!!!) but I am all over the Columbo sets for $19.99 at Best Buy (especially since that is one of the sets B&N DIDN'T have during their sale!)

Probably nothing for me. I want to pick up Dynamic: 1 but I'm wondering if DavidLynch.com is going to be selling it (with the cool packaging). I'll just wait and see what happens.

Thanks for the prices! Posted Image

Gladiator Extended Edition My target was clueless, they only had 1 of the $10 DVD's(One flew over the...) The clerk had no idea about the ad. He showed me the regular edition priced at $13.72 So I went to Circuit City right across the street. They had 2 copies in stock. I took 1 to customer service counter for the price amtch. It was priced at $29.99, but rang up at $24.99. So they price-matched it at $8.50+.52 tax I had a $10 gift card from the Christmas Eve sale for spending $100. I actually spent $100.39. For which I just got a $29.99 Rebate on Quicken 2007. So I still have 99 cents on my gift card. If you catch these deals, some of them are pretty good.

Gee, Kevin. It was available as recently as a day or so ago. I can't imagine what happened. They really should explain it when they change a listing like that.
