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).



The Specials

--I am thoroughly confused as to whether there is a new Blu-ray release of The Apartment.  Half of my new release lists contain news of a release...but hardly any retailers (including amazon) are showing a release.  **EDIT:  Confirmed below.  Added above.  Posted Image

Sure is.  And someone posted that the Hitchcocks were going to be $9.99 at Costco.  If so, you still never know when they'll show up on the rack there.

Thanks Mike.  I can confirm the Apartment.  MGM isn't sending out screeners until after street date these days, but Matt will get all the Hitchcock titles up after he receives them.  All the good catalog releases are killing me!  Stripes, Hitchcocks, The Toy and Wings for me this week.




I think we have a Wings contest coming up this week with a couple of copies to give away.  Stay tuned for that!

Thanks as always for the RoundUp, Mike. I hope to have the Godzilla review up tonight. Two full length movies in HD plus a vast array of bonus material will take some time to wade through it all.

50/50 might really surprise some people out there. I don't know if I have to own it but it's definitely worth seeing. If the Costco near me stocks those Hitchcock titles, I'll pick them up. If not, I'll wait for them to go on sale at some point. Thanks for the prices! :)

Wings and all the Hitchcocks for me!

I may double dip on Godzilla but will wait to see MattH's review first.  50/50 is a possible rental for me.  A couple other titles in the $15 Target TV double packs include The Brady Bunch and The Golden Girls.


Thanks as always, Mike...feeling better?

It is weird that Amazon isn't listing it...

definitely a week to break the bank on catalog titles,


waiting on the three Hitchcock's and wings from amazon pre order ( Hitch is my Xmas gift from sister-in-law)


also if any one is interested in the Jean Rollin  Blu's already got mine, Kino has a bundle of all 5 on their site lower than Amazon, like 104.00 but you have to get all 5 for the bundle.

Thanks for the Round-Up, Mike!


I've seen the Hitchcocks at my Costco for $9.99 and will be purchasing them this week (Costco honors street dates usually even if an employee puts stuff out too early).  Wings is also on the list to purchase.

Correct. Probably an anomaly. They had no barcode, so I'm not too sure what they were doing there.
