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.

Somehow I never got around to seeing the KB Hamlet. "As of 2006, this was the last studio film to be shot in the 70mm process."

Somehow Charleton Heston, Julie Christie, Jack Lemmon, and dozens of other stars have bit parts in it. Posted Image

Thanks, Mike and Patrick.

Somehow, I knew Amazing Johnathan: Wrong on Every Level wouldnt make the RoundUp cut. This week, it's that and Home Run Derby Vol. 2 for me (both already on their way). I'll probably get the Back to School and Taxi Driver double dips eventually, but not this week.

Thanks for the Round-Up.

Charlie Chan Vol 3 and Fugitive Season 1 for me. Costco's in store price for Chan will be $31.99 at my local store. It seems like they often beat the online price by a few bucks.

Sorry, gang. Looking more closely at it, Tony's right. I've changed the OP to reflect this.

It doesn't quite compute selling two episodes of a TV series for $14.99?!?!

Kind of out of whack, isn't it?! I remember the last season of 24, Fox released the first four episodes of that season after they aired...but it wasn't anywhere near that expensive.

Yeah, that 24 disc was $10 (after the normal discount) and it came with a coupon for $10 off a season set which doesn't expire until 2008 so you can use it on the upcoming S6 set.
