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

MoH = Masters of Horror.

Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

Michael Shayne Mysteries: Volume 1: Michael Shayne, Private Detective; The Man Who Wouldn’t Die; Sleepers West; Blue, White and Perfect.

W.C. Fields Comedy Collection: Volume 2: Never Give a Sucker an Even Break, Poppy, The Man on the Flying Trapeze, The Old Fashioned Way, You’re Telling Me!

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! Blood Diamond AND Eragon are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one(s)!

Thanks as usual. I thought I'd be getting The Caine Mutiny special edition, but apparently it's been pushed back to May 8. So nothing this week.

As always, thanks for the round-up.

Nothing for me this week. I'm surprised at the lack of Rocky promotions, though.

I've noticed the trend, and I think it stinks. It used to be (and not that long ago) that the 1-disc and the 2-disc versions were released several weeks, to a couple of months, apart. And then you could still count on the 2-disc versions to be discounted to "regular" release week pricing ($15.99 - $18.99).

Under that model though, I ended up double-dipping and probably spent around $33 for a movie ($14.99 for the 1-disc release and then $17.99 for the 2-disc a couple of months later). So maybe buying the 2-disc version up-front is really saving me around $10. Posted Image

I'm still not going for it though - the bargain hunter in me won't allow it. As for me, I'm grabbing the 1-disc versions priced in low to mid teens.[/COMMENTARY]

So, what's on my buy list for this week? My signature line might be a hint. I was bummed when I saw the grid pricing for Miami Vice: S3 & S4, but then I came across this:

Whoo-hoo! Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

The only other definite is Rocky Balboa.
I'm considering Blood Diamond and I'll pick-up The Nativity Story down the road when the price drops.

Big Fish and Finding Neverland on Blu-Ray are tempting. I'm a bit surprised that Warner didn't get 'Blood Diamond' out on the HD formats at the same time as the regular editions. Oh well.

Thanks for the round-up.

I've already ordered the Michael Shayne Mysteries Vol 1 collection (classic mystery fans have long watited for this title) and will consider the WC Fields Vol 2 although the pricing on that is a bit steep.

They tried, I think. Blood Diamond was on a number of my HD new release lists for this week (both formats)...but, seems to have been pushed back indefinitely. I cannot find a new release date.

Bad wording on my part. I know we've been discussing this for awhile. It just seems like the policy has been locked-in and that stores are not breaking from that $22.99 price point on the damn things! Posted Image
