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, glad you were able to return Scarlett Johansson to the WRU gallery Posted Image.


Unknown, and the Adjustment Bureau for me.  The Island when it comes down in price a bit :)

Weird...the Blu-Ray of Louie Season 1 is cheaper than the regular DVD?

Great show.

Just The Adjustment Bureau for me this week. One of my favorite movies of the year so far.


Thanks as always, Mike, and happy father's day!

My goodness...what to pick from?


Mister T?

Orgasm, Inc?

Mega Python vs. Gatoroid?


Nothing for me this week...TOO many choices that I can't narrow down!

(Although a rental/streaming Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story could be interesting...)


Happy Father's Day to all that are...

Excellent choice of photos this week, Mike, any time we get to see January Jones AND Scarlett Johansson in the roundup, its going to be a good week.


I will be renting the Adjustment Bureau and Cedar Rapids eventually.  I am strongly considering purchasing Louie, but Amazon has some very confusing information regarding the difference between the blu-ray and DVD.  The DVD version  is described as "Louie: Season One (DVD/Blu-ray Combo in DVD Packaging)", while the blu-ray version is described as "Louie Season One (2 Disc Combo in Blu-Ray Packaging)."  The packaging, however, does not indicate any combination formatting at all.  Does anyone have any more information on this issue?  I might have to wait until Tuesday to see exactly what the difference is in person...

Looking at the Target ad, they have the "Best of I Love Lucy" (which Matt Hough reviewed) which is listed as a Target exclusive.

The Best of I Love Lucy DVD Review


It's a 14 episode collection for $9.99.

Thanks, Eric.

I had that listing circled in my Target ad for this week but promptly forgot all about it.  Thanks.  I'm going to add it and the link to Matt's review to the grid in the OP.

I am penciled in to review Louie: Season One, but the review copy has not arrived and may not arrive. (We're never sure what they will and won't send us. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the decision making.)

It's not a DVD, so it's a bit off topic, but does anyone know what Best Buy is selling the new Weird Al CD for?

I imagine because they figure a few people might want to add it to their collection.
