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! Bobby is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one! Also, Sleeping Dogs Lie is listed twice in ALL my retailers and in some places is shown with two different covers. I cannot confirm this, but I believe this title MAY also come in OAR and MAR versions.

--Amazon.com is having a BIG SALE!

There is no TARGET Flyer this week. We will need to wait and see if the on-line ad reveals any interesting sales.

Apparently, the "Wild Thing" edition of "Major League" is part of the Paramount $6.98 sale at Deep Discount DVD. And also, AB's Phantasm appears to be $11.99

I liked Bobby, but not enough to add it to my collection. So it looks like I'll have an excuse to stay away from Best Buy this week. Thanks for the good news guys! Posted Image

Posted as a warning, this latest release of "The Pride of the Yankees" has the same transfer as the previous release so it's nothing, but a repackaged disc. Crawdaddy

Thanks Mike and Patrick! I guess I will be double-dipping on Phantasm. Based on the reviews I've read and the $12.99 CC price, I can't resist. Other than that, I will also be picking up the Sly & the Family Stone CD box-set this week.

Where's Phantasm II and IV ? I believe Wal-Mart/Sam's Club and Costco are also closed on Sunday.

Three good titles on both HD formats. I already have 'Payback' on HD DVD (good presentation, the docs are excellent), so it looks like 'Dog' and 'Scanner' for me.

Easter week seems to be the one week out of the year where Target does not produce a flyer. (I remember the same thing happening last year.) BTW, Happy Easter, everybody!

This is one of two possible Sundays that Target does not release an ad (the other being the Sunday closest to Christmas if it falls on the 22nd-26th). They do have an ad available on their website at www.target.com/weeklyad . It only lists the following:
Avatar: $12.99
Bobby: $19.99
Scooby-do S3: $29.99

The link I had in my weekly "CinemaRed" newsletter wasn't working to show the other titles available in-store on Tuesday (but that doesn't list prices). I generally make it in to check things out, so I'll post whatever I find on Tuesday afternoon.

Happy Easter!

Thanks, as always, guys. And Happy Easter. Just Major League SE and, probably, Ric Flair & the Four Horseman for this week.

Just got the Phantasm DVD w/ poster at CC. The poster is INSIDE the DVD case (folded, obviously). It measures 14.5" x 18.5", and looks just like the picture in the ad. BTW, they only had ONE copy of this on the shelf! I picked up Phantasm 3, also.

So when is Phantasm 2 going to come out in R1?

Also, Spiderman 2.1 is out at Walmart with a bonus disc "the Villians of Spiderman 3" (13 minutes long). The bonus disc is in a keepcase packaged side-by-side with the movie. They had it for $12.88. I am such a sucker for Spiderman (triple dip on this movie alone Posted Image )
