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).

I'm passing this week, too.  Doesn't look like there's anything I'm dying to own in any way, shape or form.  I'm sure that's going to change in the not too distant future...

Thanks for the Round-Up, Mike! Although I don't post very often on this site, I religiously check your Round-Up each week. I'm hoping that Best Buy lowers its price on the 3-D Journey to the Center of the Earth. (I'll use a BB Trade-up coupon on the purchase, of course.)

The Ides Of March was an excellent movie. At $13 (with that trade-in price), I may pick that up. Also, 50/50 is in Best Buy's ad this week but near as I can tell everyone else has it listed for next week. Thanks for the prices! :)

Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.


You missed a couple of review links for reviews I posted over the last couple of weeks.


Eclipse Series 31: Three Popular Films by Jean-Pierre Gorin can be found here.


Criterion's edition of Traffic can be found here.


Twilight Time's The Roots of Heaven isn't in the chart since it's a Screen Archives exclusive, but it comes out this week, and that review will hopefully be up tonight.

All caught up, Matt.  Thanks for letting me know.  The links have been added to the OP.


I've been home bound the last few days with pneumonia and I guess I'm just not firing on all cylinders.

I'm with many others...nothing going on this week to get too excited about.

Take any pressed non-porn DVD up to customer service, they give you a $5 coupon good on any Blu-ray $9.99 and up and a reciept (which the coupon says you need to show when you redeem the coupon but no one ever asked to see my recipet) and you can use it between now and January 28. The ad shows that you can use it on sale items. A few caveats: If you don't find anything, you can't get your DVD back. Also, there might some kind of stipulation on using it for music Blu-rays but I don't know for sure. I said it another thread but $5 is a way better price for most used DVDs than you're going to get anywhere else.

I hope you feel better Mike, thanks as usual for the round up.  I have ordered License to Drive (guilty pleasure) and would like to pick up a few other catalog titles.  MattCR previously reviewed the Taylor Swift Best Buy exclusive concert.

I'm working on it Charles.  Thanks!


I've had a chance to watch a LOT of football over the past couple of weekends (even though I'm not that big a fan of the NFL--but my son is).  Plus, I've had the chance to pare down my enormous stack of films-to-watch.  For example, I finally had the chance to crack open my BD of Bridge On the River Kwai a couple of days ago.  Posted Image
