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.

Bourne Ultimatum HD DVD for me, and a whole slew of SDs for the fam for Christmas. Posted Image

The Potter set on Blu-ray will come home after the holidays it seems. But hey, I'll need something to watch once football is finished.

Thanks, Guys!

LOST: Season Three for me. I guess reading between the lines then, no one has a store-exclusive bonus disc for this volume. That marks the first time. Drat.

I am also thinking about the Disney Treasures, too. But, truth be told, this series isn't doing it for me anymore the way it did in the beginning. As long as there are no reports of mastering mishaps, at some point down the road I will pick up Donald (to complete that series) and possibly, Oswald.

Kind of bummed Best Buy doesn't have an exclusive bonus disc with Lost: Season 3. That's a first, at least for Lost sets. Oh well.
I loves me some zombies.

A BD sale the week of a box office hit coming out on HD DVD? Quelle Surprise!

The Bourne movies in HD for me, Oswald and Donald, and probably that ginormous Red Sox box set. Because, remember - you can turn Tim McCarver off.

I think they should put that on one of those stickers attached to the case shrink-wrap.
Jay's Movie Blog - A movie-viewing diary.
Transplanted Life: Sci-fi soap opera about a man placed in a new body, updated two or three times a week.
Trading Post Inn - Another gender-bending soap, with different collaborators writing different points of view.

Chronological Donald is on its way from DD. I'll be getting Harry Potter 2 disc at CC w/Calendar & Trading Cards. Looks like I'll be getting Bourne Ultimatum there too. I'd get the Bourne Steelbook if you could save the $5 from bb.com too but since I don't have a Best Buy B&M it isn't worth $10 more. $5 but not $10.

I kinda wish there was a bonus disc too but I'm hoping that it's a sign that store exclusive bonus discs may be going away. Something tells me that's wishful thinking though. Posted Image

There will be an in-store exclusive. It's at Wal-Mart though.

I read in a review that the Season 3 finale, which originally aired on one night, is in two-parts on the DVD. They didn't do this with the Season 2 DVD. Anybody know the reasoning behind this?

Did it specifically say that it was broken into two episodes? If I remember correctly, the S2 booklet listed the finale as two parts and disc six even had 'Episodes 21 to 24' printed on it and the S2 finale was still in one part.

Either way, all the finales were produced as two episodes (for S3, it was episodes 22 and 23) so splitting it isn't really incorrect.

Speaking of Wal-Mart, this is totally a YMMV situation, but I was in Wal-Mart tonight to check out some digital photo frames, and wandered around to their high-def offerings, and was surprised to see the following prices (pre-placed in the locked cases for HD DVDs and BDs):

Harry Potter 1-4 on Blu-ray or HD DVD $14.77 each
Harry Potter 5 on Blu-ray or HD DVD $21.77
The Bourne Ultimatum on HD DVD $21.77

Again, totally a YMMV situation, but I know where I'll be picking up the Bourne Ultimatum HD DVD on Tuesday.
