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 and Matt.  I'm down for In Bruges for $7.99 too.  I was hoping Soldier would be a bit cheaper so I'm on the fence.  It's one of my guilty pleasures and I'd love to upgrade the DVD.


[RANT] Sure the Sam Axe Burn Notice movie is on Blu-ray, but seasons one and three are DVD only! [/RANT]


Kudos to Best Buy for beating Amazon on a couple of prices this week.  Bring on the price match Amazon!

Nothing for me...but I have a feeling I'll be catching up on every animated feature of the past two years as I am spending the next four days in northern WI with my niece and  nephew...and I KNOW Despicable Me is on the agenda for tonight!

Season 4 was also DVD only. Very disappointing. I'll be curious to see if the Sam Axe movie was filmed with the same 16mm camera technique as the series is. I missed it when it premiered earlier this year, and I kept trying to catch a rerun, but USA didn't seem to program any.

Best Buy had The Kids are Alright for 9.99 yesterday and I passed it up.  I think I'm going to go back today to see if it's the same price.  (Probably not, but it never hurts to try.  I don't remember seeing it online last week, so I can't go by the BB.com prices.)

I added links to Kevin's review of Animal House and Todd's review of Stargate Atlantis to the Blu-ray pricing grid above.
