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).

 Star Trek on Blu-ray for me, and Best Buy comes thru with a good price. Good for a TV show on Blu-ray, anyway....YES!

Thanks as always guys. Much appreciated.

I had TOS S2 BD on pre-order from Amazon...but i'm canceling.  BB's price is much better.  But the TNG movie set is still coming from Amazon. 

Mike, I haven't looked into it, but I'm fairly certain the Star Trek Original Motion Picture Collection (DVD) also includes The Undiscovered Country.  There wouldn't be a reason for it not to.  

On another note: FYE's changed their used BD promotion.  Now, it's Buy 2 Get 50% off the 3rd for both BD and DVD.  They also have select BD's on sale for $12.99 (a couple Die Hard's, Devil Wears Prada,Spaceballs, Pathfinder...).

Additionally, BB's been putting a bunch of BD's on sale very quickly after they get released.  They're all catalogue titles, but $13 for Freddy vs. Jason, for example, works for me.

I'm picking up Friday The 13th: The Series: Season Three this week. I'll grab 30 Rock: Season Three when Target puts it on sale for $20 in the next two or three months.

Also, if anyone out there is an angry, semi-delusional loner that wants to see more people like themselves represented onscreen, Observe And Report is the movie is for you.

Thanks for the prices, guys!

The Wal Mart near me had Freddy Vs. Jason for $10.00 - really tempting.

Jason:  You are, of course, correct.  I have added the title above. 

Isn't it a weird assortment of single Star Trek titles that are released this week?

WalMart isn't as convenient as BB for me.  But yeah, $10 is even better. :)

Not in my, geek-centered mind.  II, IV, VI, VIII are considered the most popular and "best" of the series so it makes sense to start with them on standalone BD.

I liked parts of it but it's a tough movie to love. That being said, I think that this movie will gain a small but devoted cult following in the coming years.

Well, nothing for me this week, but I do have a bit of news for those of you nowhere near a Target Store.  They recently dropped their deal with Amazon to offer their own Music/Movie/Book shipping service.  Now the sale prices in the circular are available to order from Target.com;  however, I am not sure if the Target exclusive content is always available.  There is a flat $2.99 per order fee.  And titles that are not in the ad are also available (i.e., the individual Star Trek movies are $13.79 each.)

Anyone know if the Exodus in the Paul Newman Tribute Collection is remastered, or is it the same old nonanamorphic disc?

It is being reported that amazon.com has a code SNOWHITE (with just one "w") that will take $10 off the upcoming Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Blu-ray release (probably to "match" the $10 coupon that's floating around.  That drops the amazon price to $14.99.Posted Image

Apparently there are also bundle deals if you buy Snow White and either (or both) of the recent Tinkerbell releases.  SW + TB: Lost Treasure = $8 off. 

Info via SlickDeals.

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!
