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).

Big week for me. Star Trek, Fight Club, Clerks and Chasing Amy (or the Kevin Smith box set if the Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back disc is new).

Thanks for the prices, guys!

Is the Prisoner listing under the SD-DVD section the AMC show that airs tomorrow night? I'm guessing it's not.

Thanks Mike. I had a feeling it wasn't the new show yet. I was doing some more poking around on the internet and see that the new show is airing over the next few nights so a DVD/Blu-ray release this week is a bit premature.

I haven't seen the print ad, but the Target.com online weekly ad states that the BD of Gone with the Wind is a two-disc set (probably along the lines of the Wizard of Oz set they did a few weeks ago).  Guess we'll have to wait until Tuesday to find out!

Star Trek, maybe Galaxy Quest. The Kevin Smith movies will have to wait.

And Mike., that Jay & Silent Bob pic is NOT from Clerks. :)

I don't know if everyone knows or not, but the Target Star Trek packaging houses the discs INSIDE the saucer section of the model.

Anyone know of any retailer that is offering the Star Trek blu-ray as an exclusive with an included standard dvd of the film?

As for the normal 3-disc blu-ray, Wal-mart and Fry's have both been advertising it for $19.95

That's something that I would like to know. I have finally planned on getting a blu player in 2010 and while I plan on being more selective with blu titles, I think that this is one that I would like to have, but in the meantime would like the dvd. I might just get the dvd ($9.99 at Amazon is pretty good) and worry about blu next year or so if no combo exists.

Amazing amount of cool releases this week. Must have the new Kevin Smith releases and would love to add Fight Club and Galaxy Quest to the Blu-ray collection...

The wife is getting me Trek on Blu for Christmas; she already told me because she knew I'd have it myself on Tuesday otherwise.  It will be a fine inaugural for my (hopefully) soon-to-be HD setup--featuring a 60- or 65-inch Mitsubishi DLP.  If my seasonal job turns permanent, it will be my reward.

When I click on Fight Club BD in Best Buy's Weekly Ad, it shows up in the shopping cart at $18.99.

It will be interesting to see what prices people actually get on Tuesday.

Trek and GalaxyQuest should be on my doorstep by the end of the week.  Picked up The Peacekeeper Wars at Fry's to compliment the Farscape box which landed in the mail last week.  I've even got Moonshot (BD) waiting at home, along with something called Vampire Party.

The short version?  I don't think I'm buying anything this week that hasn't already been pre-ordered.  Maybe Fight Club at some point...
