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.

I may have to get King of California just because one of my nephews worked on the film as a P.A. and is listed in the credits (with his name misspelled; he was not pleased). Not a bad film, either; Evan Rachel Wood can do no wrong in my book.

Thanks as usual.

The only thing I could potentially buy is Groundhog Day, but more than likely I'll wait for the blu-ray.

I hope Netflix gets the urated Lake Placid 2 since I thought the first one was great cheesy fun. Any thoughts on renting Invasion? I seem to think it was pretty much universally panned and I remember it tanked at the box office.

Since I missed the Val Leton set the first time around, I will take advantage of the Amazon deal. Also, I think I will snag The Pride of the Yankees for $4.99.

Probably just Pioneers of Television for me.

Caught a glimpse at the "Late Night" episode one night and it was pretty well done.

Oh....and El Cid SE.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Meh, nothing catching my eye here. I may splurge on Entourage at the $19.99 price point later in the week. It all depends.

Mike, I saw all four parts and found it very good... even the one about the game shows! It was really interesting to learn about these early years, most of which, I was not yet around for.

Anyway, I'll be picking up my missing seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm! Thanks guys!

Thanks for theh RoundUp, guys.

Curb S6 this week and, while I want to see King of Kong, $20 seems too high for that. I'll wait until I can get it cheaper.

Oh, and Veronica Mars S3 thanks to Cameron's thread pointing that out.

You just know your local rental places (Blockbuster, Hollywood Video, etc.) will have that in their "previously viewed" bins before you know it.

I keep hearing that Hollywood Video stores are closing in different places. Was there some news that I missed? Are they downsizing?

Mike,

The shortest possible story on Hollywood Video (and Movie Gallery) is that they filed for bankruptcy and have been shutting down stores. Movie Gallery bought Hollywood in 2005...and found themselves with huge debt. And competing with Blockbuster and Netflix rent by mail programs.

Thanks, Jason.

Netflix seems to be having quite an impact on the rental industry.

I've got one guy I work with that has absolutely no rental places near where he lives...and that's in a suburb of Albany. The last Mom & Pop shop closed a few months ago...and now the HV has closed. There's no Blockbuster near him and the grocery stores have given up on rentals altogether (maybe there are some of those red box units still around. I don't know.).

It just seems strange since I thought the rental industry was still going strong. He rents a fair amount. Maybe Netflix is in his future?

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!
