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

(MoH) after a title = New release in the Masters of Horror Collection.

Special Note: There are two other “Music For the Movies” releases this week similar to the Bernard Herrmann title. They feature the music of Toru Takemitsu and Georges Delerue.

Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

Fright Night Collection: Red Eye, Sleepy Hollow, The Haunting, What Lies Beneath.

Twisted Terror Collection: Deadly Friend, Dr. Giggles, Eyes of a Stranger, From Beyond the Grave, The Hand, Someone’s Watching 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.

Thanks, Mike and Patrick. Kind of a big week for me - Bronx Is Burning, Drawn Together S2 (finally), HR Derby Vol. 3 and possibly Knocked Up as a blind buy. I'll eventually probably blind buy The TV set. And I'd like to get Numb3rs S3, but it's too expensive and they never go on sale (which is why I still haven't picked up S2).

Thanks as usual. Just one or two TV sets this week. King of Queens for certain, and My Name is Earl if I can verify they didn't screw up the music this time.

Fairly big week for me:

Eaten Alive ($18.69 on Amazon)
Knocked Up
Twisted Terror Collection (I only want four of the titles but the price on the set is cheaper than buying four titles individually)

I'll probably pick up the Suspiria re-release as a birthday gift for a friend too.

Thanks for the prices! Posted Image
