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).


The Specials

It's one of the odd weeks of the calendar year.  While these new releases are out on Tuesday and the catalog prices kick in on Sunday...the 800-pound gorilla in the room is Black Friday.  And there are lots of GREAT Black Friday software deals coming up for the not-so-faint-of-heart!  ../../img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif

Patrick: 

I can help you with those question marks on the BB $4.99 titles:

Lawrence of Arabia, Field of Dreams, Without a Paddle, Van Wilder.

The ad says: Pick up these and lots more in store or at BestBuy.com.

The mysterious $8.99 (DVD)/$14.99 (Blu-ray) title--already listed in the OP--is:  Notorious.

For what it is worth, I bought Angel Heart, Air America (both due out on Tuesday) as well as Red Heat on BD for $7.99 each at my local (and favorite) warehouse store.  The one not owned by Walmart./img/vbsmilies/htf/smiley_wink.gif  If you happen to be going there anyway this weekend it may be worthwhile to take your over sized cart down the movie aisle.

I'll be getting Funny People and My Bloody Valentine on Blu-ray and Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Season Four on DVD this week. I was going to wait on The Sopranos: Season One Blu-ray but $37 is pretty tempting to me.

Thanks for the prices, guys!

Aside from Superman: The Complete Animated Series, there's not a single new release I'm interested in this week.  Which is good, since a rare Sunday outing yielded Forrest Gump, Drag Me to Hell, A Time to Kill, Australia and Valkyrie.  I put Sunshine Cleaning back just so I could I was being "good."

Happy Thanksgiving all, since the next Round-Up is prolly gonna be after Turkey Day!  (Unless Mike has plans to do a Black Friday edition...?)

I'm not sure about Best Buy, but Target's ad runs Sun-Wed ONLY, with a new two day ad for Black Friday.

Not sure what the big secret is, but that leaves either Costco or BJ's.

Chris S just posted in the Black Friday ad that Amazon has just posted a schedule of Movies & TV software that they're going to be discounting--all week long.  CHECK IT OUT!

I think it's more of a breaking Release date which isn't supposed to happen.  OTOH, I happened to be looking at some Kirkland Brand stuff today at one of those stores and ran across those same Blu Rays plus several other older BR for cheap -- Ind. Day for 12.99, Mr and Mrs Smith for 12.99,  Reservoir Dogs for 7.99 (along with at least 10 others I can't remember names), Wedding Crashers for 8.99.  

The Blu Rays I bought are listed on the receipt as BD/BLKFRIDAY instead of by name.



The store starts with C

I'm surprised. I've occasionally come across DVDs at Costco that were put out early, but usually, they won't ring up until street date.

STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

The Target version:

Blu has the 138 minute theatrical and 146 min extended editions. 

The included DVD only has the theatrical edition of the film.
