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.  Just Great Mouse Detective for me (first dvd I've bought since I went blu last Thanksgiving).  Don't see it getting a blu ray release anytime in the foreseeable future.  Seems everybody's price is around $15.   Walmart.com has it for $11.86.  Do they pm their own website?   If not I can do a site to store order.   If there was something else I needed I'd get it at Amazon but nothing to get to $25 for free shipping.

C'mon Bill.  You can try harder than that!  /img/vbsmilies/htf/wink.gif

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!

The most tempting thing for me this week is the Hurt Locker on sale.  Nothing new is calling my name, at least not until I read the reviews.  I know Kevin is just about ready to post Apollo 13.  We haven't received the BD of Pirate Radio yet.

Does anyone know?  Are those M-G-M DVD-Rs on amazon April 15 connected with the Warner Archive Program?  /img/vbsmilies/htf/confused.gif

I've never seen anything listed on amazon like that in their new release listings.

Well, I could order it with Armageddon blu (preorder for 4-27) but then I'd have to wait a couple more weeks.   Otherwise nothing really coming up.  Trying not to double dip on blu for titles I own on dvd unless they're non anamorphic (like Armageddon).   But you're right I will try harder.

The Great Mouse Detective for me. First time it has been released with its original, unaltered title on home video!

Also, you need to be careful with the MGM titles because unlike Warner's Archive Program, not all the MGM titles are in their OAR.

The video title was changed to The Adventures Of The Great Mouse Detective.

Anyways, waiting for the Blu on that one (already have the DVD, not double-dipping until it's Blu).

If you scroll through BB's DVD's or BD's on sale (online), you'll find a bunch of interesting stuff.  The Thing and Catwoman for 9.99.  Bender's Game for 20.99.  Simpsons S20 @34.99.  Amazon has some for less, including a lower price on Up in the Air BD.

I look forward to the review of the Apollo 13 blu ray. My SD disc died and I didn't the HD-Disc, I'm sure it will be a great release and it's on my list to pick-up!

Possible help on a couple titles

Universal Studios Facebook page has a $5 off coupon available -- It think expires either 4/30 or 5/31.   Pirate Radio looks like the only new title available from that studio so may be bit more $$$.   If so then PR for 16.99 or 17.99 at Target and BB.

www.facebook.com/universalstudiosentertainment

You need to sign into Facebook (or create a new account), become a "Fan" at the Universal site and then you should be able to get 2 coupons per account ( 2 per computer).   If you have a 2nd/3rd computer it appears you can create another account and get additional coupons -- or you can create a dummy account if you don't wish to share your FB information with Universal.  

The coupon states $5 off Regularly Priced Bluray so there is a bit of a YMMV here depending on how the folks interpret that.    Several people got some of the $10 titles last week from BB  like Fletch, Knocked Up, and Sarah Marshall which still appear to be on sale this week so may be worth a try.  Many others got denied due to the restrictions

Forgive me if this a touch off topic, but does anyone know of a reliable source for checking the differences between multiple relases of the same film?  I think this is already the 3rd Gone With The Wind Blu Ray release, and I don't know which edition I would want.  I used to use Amazon, but they don't seem to list edition features like they used to, and to further complicate matters, the reviews that come up can sometimes refer to other editions.  THANKS!
