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).

Only GL: Emerald Knights for me.  I splurged way too much in the last few days and haven't created a budget for the beginning of June yet.  Tomorrow after Race for the Cure...I promise...

Hope to purchase two items this week... The Man Who Would be King BD for me and Green Lantern Animated BD for my husband (not sure if I want to go to BB for the small Green Lantern Doll).


Being a female is a matter of birth. Being a woman is a matter of age. But being a lady… Now that's a matter of choice.

Thanks as always for the list, Mike.


It still galls me that White Collar and Burn Notice were dropped from Blu-ray releases and now only come out on DVD. Posted Image

I'll be picking up Breaking Bad: Season Three (the best show on TV) on Blu-ray. The remake of True Grit is definitely worth a rental for those that haven't seen it. Thanks for the prices! :)

Thanks Mike! There are a lot of releases this week. Superman and Green Lantern Blu for me. I also definitely want The Stunt Man on Blu (this, btw, is a fantastic movie for anyone who has not seen it) but, since it is a double-dip of the DVD for me, I'll hold out and wait for a better price on this great, great catalog title.

I'd love to get Once Upon A Time In The West on Blu for $10, but don't have a copy of the Target flyer to price match at BB. Will they accept a printout on an online flyer?


Will also wait on the True Grit remake until it's cheaper.

Stopped by Target, besides Once Upon a Time in the West and Rio Lobo, their on-sale for $10 western blu titles included Big Jake and A Man Called Horse.  They had two copies of each title.

Mike, your commitment is always appreciated.  I always wonder if any casual passersby are concerned by the strange man huddled over his laptop late Saturday night by the library...

True Grit and Breaking Bad for me, I have been looking forward to these for quite some time.  True Grit did not impress me that much after I saw it in the theater, but it really grew on me, so I am looking forward to another viewing.
