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 as usual for the update Mike!  No love for Sherlock Holmes this week...$25!  I'll wait for it to go on sale or pick it up used.  Some great sale titles at Target!  Serenity, Death Race, Gran Torina, (500) Days of Summer all great picks for the price.  I enjoyed Whip It too.  I've seen a lot of Fox BD titles heavily discounted a few weeks after release lately.

Target.com has a $3 coupon for selected Disney DVD/BD titles:
Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure, G-Force or Up

http://coupons.targe...RvWjwG90D1chqDW

(expires 4/11/10)

Kinda surprised Alice in Wonderland is being re-released without a BD version...or is it coming out when the theatrical version hits the stores?

That was an awfully fast price drop for Pandorum.

Nothing for me this week. Sherlock Holmes was a fun movie and worth a rental if you haven't seen it.

Thanks for the prices, guys! /img/vbsmilies/htf/smile.gif">

I totally missed that.  My eyes are only looking for BD deals these days and not DVD.  But, yeah, that was a faster price drop.  :)

Nothing for me either.  I liked Sherlock Holmes but not near enough to buy it.    I would've upgraded Alice In Wonderland if there were a blu ray release.   Disney has no plans for it this year not even as a tie in when the live action Alice comes out.  Bummer.

I think I can wait on Sherlock.  I still didn't pick up Mad Men season 3 or The African Queen from last week.  Oh, and that stupid New Moon (for the wife, honest) is still hanging over my head!

Alvin and the Chipmunks for the little one who has been talking about since he saw it at Christmas and has declared it his favorite movie.

And Abbott and Costello for me!  I'll be picking this up at Best Buy which means it won't be on the shelves and I'll have to ask, and the clerk will stare at me blankly and ask "Abbawhat?"

In case anyone's interested: the three PotC movies on BD are listed as $14.99 in BB.  One of my local stores still had the steelbook versions.  They rang up as $34.99, but the $14.99 was confirmed and I got the override.  Might not work for everyone, especially if your media department/manager knows anything about BD's.  But I was lucky.  They also have a pretty decent assortment of BD's for $9.99, including The Phantom, The Mask, Blow, Clear and Present Danger, Sum of All Fears, Patriot Games and a bunch more.

Just stand in the aisle at Best Buy and yell "Hey Abbott!" at the top of your lungs.  See what happens.

Does anybody know the content of the comic book included in Target's edition of Sherlock Holmes?
