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! Stomp the Yard is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one(s)!

Thanks guys! I have to get Tex Avery's Droopy, for sure. I will NetFlix Pan's Labyrinth and The Fountain to decide whether to make either a permanent addition to my library.

Is the free movie ticket only good on the Pirates standard edition? Also, how can I find out which theaters are participating?

Same here, except I also need the M*A*S*H set which includes all of the extras that had heretofore only been available via the full series box. For those of us that collected this series as it was released, this is our chance to get the supplements that were not included with the individual season boxes.

Thanks for the Round-Up.

Rockford Season 4 is a definite. Banacek is a possible depending on what the reviews say. It's coming from TV Guide so perhaps Gord will have something on his site about it.

I see a picture of Battle of the Bulge, but I don't see any listing of this movie. Is this a new version that is being released?

Does anyone know about re-release of Full Metal Jacket? I see a listing on Amazon here:


I'm interested because it claims to be in Widescreen, like the new HD-DVD and Blu-Ray releases, as opposed to the 4:3 framing of all of the previous DVD releases.

Anyone know anything? Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the round-up!

Finally a big week for me. Droopy, The Fountain (in HD of course!), Pan's Labyrinth 2-disc, and one blind buy (heard good things) Seraphim Falls.
