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 for the roundup! Just Animaniacs Vol. 3 and Pinky & the Brain Vol. 3 this week. Hopefully Costco will have these for $22.99-24.99 as they have in the past.
DVD & Blu-ray - It's all about the movies!

My only purchase will be Bridge To Terabithia at CC. I got Secret Of NIMH from DeepDiscount on Friday. It has possibly the lamest 2nd disc I've ever seen. One 14 minute featurette & 5 kiddie set top games. Worse than a lot of the free bonus discs you get in a paper sleeve from CC.

Oopsie! The circuit city add clearly shows "The Rainmaker - Special edition" as part of their $3.99 sale, but that's quite impossible considering that the special edition won't be released until 7-24-2007!

Thanks, as always, Mike and Patrick!

It appears that the only items I am interested in this week are not being featured at any of the B&M's. That being the Warner Bros. 'Cult Camp Classics' sets.

I guess I will check out Sam's Club (who often seems to carry these types of sets) or go the online route.

Gary, those are actually out next week. I'm looking forward to the Terrorized Travelers set, as I'll finally be able to see Zero Hour! for the first time.

D'oh!

That explains it! For a minute there, I thought Mike was asleep at the wheel... but I should have known better! Posted Image

These titles are reviewed (favorably) in the new Entertainment Weekly I received yesterday, so I just assumed they were coming out this week.

FWIW, the Circuit City pre-order price on these is $19.99 each ($10 less than Best Buy.) And that price appears to be a couple of dollars cheaper than any of the other etailers I checked. I think I will print it out for price-matching purposes at Best Buy just in case...
