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 Mike.  A very quiet week for me in which my wallet gets a much needed rest unless you pull out some specials that I can't pass up!  Happy Easter to you and your family too.

Happy Easter! And, as always, thanks much for the RoundUp, Mike!


I'm interested in both Blow Out and El Topo, but not at 30 bucks a pop. Yikes! I must be getting old or something because that seems like a shockingly high price for vintage catalog titles. I'll sit these out and wait for a much lower price...

I have Blow Out as a pre-order from Borders (used a coupon to get it for $21), so I'll probably have to wait a week or two from Tuesday before I actually get it. Posted Image

Blow Out is tempting...it's been years since I've seen it.  I am surprised that Target has an ad...in the 18 years I worked for them they never had an ad on Easter Sunday.


Have a great Easter everyone...spending mine with family this afternoon!

That screen cap from Mongolian Death Worm made my Easter.  Thanks for the prices, nothing for me this week.  I'll be renting Blow Up eventually, I have heard enough great things about it that it seems to deserve my attention.

 and maybe South Park: Season Fourteen on DVD

Word of caution on South Park, apparently the Mohammed episode is still "censored". It's not been changed from how it aired, but you're not going to hear the bleeped dialogue. Apparently, the mini commentary is heavilly bleeped, although this potentially could have been a joke by Matt and Trey (they know they can't talk about the stuff that happened). Personally, I never had any illusions that the uncensored version would ever be released (actually, we're probably lucky the episodes weren't left out entrely).  

STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

Exactly. I'm not happy that it's still edited for TV version but it's better than nothing.

Just Lucy For me. I've been using this quiet time to pick up some back releases, got the megaset of Danger/man Secret Agent from Amazon for about $35 shipped not bad for 18 disks and I've never seen most of this series but I remember liking what I saw.
