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.

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, PLEASE 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, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).

Thanks for the Roundup!

Another slow week for me.  But looking further down the calendar I'm going to need these mid-summer savings later on in the year.

DVD & Blu-ray - It's all about the movies!

Thanks for the great looking Roundup.   Nothing for me once again.  I think my next dvd purchase will be Coraline July 21st.  Slow times indeed.

Thanks, Bill.  The Huddler team bent over backwards to try and explain how all the formatting/coding that goes into a RoundUp could be done.  They really helped me quite a lot. 

For a first try, I was pleased with the way this came out.  Hopefully I'll be able to figure out a more streamlined method to do it so it doesn't take quite as much time. 

Although maybe it's just that I had the old way down pat after all those years.  I remember the first few I did took me a while to get the hang of that system, too.

Thanks for the kind words!

Nothing to buy, but I am curious to see if Netflix has that 1922 "Sherlock Holmes" for rental...

That Night Train must have been a flop at the box office to be out on Blu-Ray so quickly.  IMDB lists NO normal reviews, only disc reviews.  I wonder what that's all about.

When I hear "Night Train" I think of cheap rotgut that a hobo would be drinking.

I don't even know if it got a theatrical release, Dennis.  If it did, the IMDb isn't listing on.  I did watch it with the BF and his parents a few weeks ago.  General consensus was good first half, terrible second half.  The BD itself isn't anything spectacular, either.

Nothing for me this week...and the same for next and the one after.  We're heading out on vacation Friday afternoon and I'm going to need the money for that.  Plus the DD sale which starts while we're gone.

Somehow, somewhere, Doctor Who 11 & 12, which will replace off-air Beta tapes from the mid 1980s.

Thanks as always, Mike, Patrick & all, especially this week as you get used to working with... and I get used to looking at... the new format.

Looks like I'll be holding off until the BSG BD set until the 28th.

As always, many thanks for the roundup!

Nothing for me this week, Mike, but thanks as always for the Round-up!  Like a lot of us, I am saving for some of the bigger releases coming up later this summer.

The "new" Round-up looks great and is easy to view.  However, my browser (IE8), doesn't load the first 2 or 3 pictures at the top (Knowing, Ali Baba), but I get the "library" picture and everything from Fonda on down.  Weird....

Any idea when the next Stooges set is being released?

I'll be picking up Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XV at some point and I may pick up Unbreakable on Blu-ray at Target.

Thanks for the prices, guys! :)

Makes me think of Oscar Peterson.  In fact, I thought it might be a jazz biopic.

Hey, John.  Can you tell me more about this?  What OS are you using, etc.? 

And, is anyone else having this problem?  I'm using Firefox 3.0.11 on XP and all is displaying fine.  But Ron Epstein says he is also having problems viewing the first couple of pictures.  I know Ron is a Mac guy--probably using Safari on OS 10. 

Thanks!

Hate to hijack this thread with problems.  Actually there may not be a problem other than Safari.

This is what shows up in Safari:

The blue question marks are usually indicators that images are missing.

However, bringing this page up in Firefox it's not so.  In fact all the images
were intact under Safari, but for some reason it decided to interject blue question marks.

I get the same type of display except the "question mark" boxes contain the red "X" and I'm using IE with Windows XP.

I'm getting the same thing that Ron posted, except with IE's red Xs instead of the blue ?s.  I'm using IE7 on Vista.

I answered this in the feedback thread, but I wouldn't advise linking to any IMDB-originated image file, and the Rose Byrne image is linked to a website that will make the image viewable if you have actually gone to the webpage that has the image file linked to it, and then the image file gets cached on your PC and becomes viewable.

I'm getting the same thing that Ron posted, but with the red "x's" that Eric and Scott get.  FWIW, I'm using IE8 on Windows 7 Release Candidate.  I'm sure it will be sorted out by the next Round-up.  At least we aren't missing a picture of, say, someone like Megan Fox!......
