(CC) after a title = New release in the Criterion Collection.

Individual Titles in the Collections Listed Above:

The Lina Wertmuller Collection (Blu-ray):  Love and Anarchy, The Seduction of Mimi, All Screwed Up.

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'm not sure what to make of this, but my new release lists put the release date of Prometheus at October 11, 2012 (Thursday).  However, the Best Buy and Target flyers make no mention of a special date and, in fact, the Best Buy flyer specifically says "Available 10/9/12" in the ad directly next to the image of Prometheus.  Amazon says October 9th, too.  So, I'm guessing the 10-11-12 release date is no longer in play.

--Two new releases from Twilight Time:  Enemy Mine and Night of the Living Dead (1990).  These are available from Screen Archives Entertainment.  I guess NotLD is already sold out of its run of 3000 copies.  Enemy Mine is still available for $29.95.


--Best Buy has an EXCLUSIVE DIGIBOOK RELEASE of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial for $24.99.


"UPGRADE AND SAVE" is back at Best Buy!  Basically, this extremely popular program allows you to bring in a used DVD to your local BB and get a coupon for $5 off ANY Blu-ray $9.99 or higher:


Bring in your original DVD (no burned copies accepted) with the original case to Customer Service and receive a $5-off coupon valid on any Blu-ray movie priced $9.99 and up. See a Customer Specialist or visit BestBuy.com/upgradeandsave for more details about the Upgrade & Save promotion. Limit 5 coupons per trip for DVD upgrades. A recycling receipt must accompany the coupon at time of redemption. Once you have received your coupon, if you do not find a Blu-ray, you are unable to get your turned-in DVD back. Not valid with any other discount or package. Markdown taken from original price or promotional price. Your original DVD must have been commercially packed and with the original case. Adult content DVDs not accepted. Not valid with any other offer. Valid on in-stock Blu-ray movies only. No cash value. Offer valid through 10/20/12.


--Best Buy has the following Blu-ray titles on sale this week:

$14.99:  Predator, Predator 2, X-Men, Alien, Aliens, Alien 3.

$19.99:  Friends with Kids, Seeking Justice, Lockout, The Devil Inside, Jeff Who Lives at Home, Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach.

--By the way, The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach both contain a $12 movie certificate to see Frankenweenie, in theaters now.  See specially marked packages.  Offer valid through 12-9-12.

--Best Buy Odds and Ends:  None to report.

--Target, this week, has an EXCLUSIVE PHOTO BOOKLET with its copies of Promtheus.  Items packaged together.


--AND...Target has an EXCLUSIVE STEELBOOK PACKAGING on its Blu copies of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.


--Some more inexplicably vague pricing from Target this week on Rock of Ages.  They are advertising a $19.99 2-disc DVD (with an EXCLUSIVE 45-minutes of content) and "Other formats $14.99 - $22.99."  I can't stand this sort of thing.  It's like a big thumbing of the nose at the consumer.  Why be intentionally vague?  They've either got to hire a new copy editor to avoid this sort of thing by accident or stop jerking around their customers.  They could just as easily itemize (like they do on all their other new releases this week) the specific prices for the specific releases.

--And, target is advertising single season prices of I Love Lucy of $11.99.  And, weirdly, Target is saying they've got an EXCLUSIVE RELEASE of seasons 5 through 9 of this new release of single season packaging of I Love Lucy.  Really?  An EXCLUSIVE release of five of the nine seasons?  Talk about messing with fans of the show.  Posted Image


--And the following TV on DVD releases are on sale at Target this week:


$27.99:  Bones: Season 6, Warehouse 13: S3


$29.99:  Once Upon a Time: S1, Grimm: S1


$32.99:  Walking Dead: S2


$34.99:  Game of Thrones: S1


--Target Odds and Ends: Some Nickelodeon titles are on sale.


There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

I'll be getting E.T. from target in the steel book and from BB in the digi using the t&s coupon. Also Promethius from BB although I'm tempted by the photo book at Target where it's $8 more but I could use That $8 towards the real photo book which is about $22 on amazon. Little Shop is on wish list until it is cheaper. Hopefully the same thing won't happen as last time. I had one in my hands on release day for the original DVD but decided not to buy it. Poseiden Adventure was previously a Walmart exclusive, now it's not. I recommend finding Find Me Guilty. A very good court room movie that's also a little funny dir by Sidney Lumet. $5 at with the coupon if you can find a copy of it at BB

Thanks, Mike! E.T. digibook for me from Best Buy, from Amazon, Rock of Ages, Little Shop of Horrors, Dial M for Murder 3D, and Prometheus 3D (which I've had on preorder since before the movie came out...got $10 movie cash to see the movie, and still got it for $24.99 from Amazon). The Amazon package will be here on Tuesday, and the first disc I am playing, despite having the 3D rig, is Little Shop...I can't wait to see the original ending, finished, and in color!

Thanks for the Roundup. Rock of Ages and Little Shop are on their way to me from Amazon, having shipped earlier today. I would love to get Great Mouse Detective and E.T. now, too, but four Blu-rays = more money than I want to spend in a single week, so I'm giving preference to the titles I don't already own (Little Shop I do own, but the new cut puts it into the new category, especially because I have always abhored the ending to the theatrical release.) The other ones I'll pick up some other time. In regards to Target's pricing of Rock of Ages: I'm going to guess that that odd wording means single-disc DVD is probably $14.99, their 2-disc DVD is $19.99 as stated and the Blu-ray combo is $22.99. Since the Blu-ray combo usually contains extras which are not offered on DVD, I would also venture a guess that the exclusive content in Target's second disc is probably just stuff that is on the Blu-ray in high def but not available elsewhere in SD. This is just a guess, but Wal-Mart had a similar situation with one of the Deathly Hallows films if I remember correctly. I am buying the Blu-ray combo pack expecting that all the extras will be on there, and if I later find out that Target's content is something else, then wow, that's really a way to treat the fans. I understand the appeal of exclusive releases to the stores, but it is a pain as a collector trying to get everything. I like the movie, but I've only got one purchase in me and it's going to be for the film in HD.

Killer week for me E.T. Prometheus Little Shop Magical Mystery Tour It's Always Sunny One thing that annoys me though is releasing Sunny two days before the new season starts. Give me a week at least to watch the BD release before the new season begins Thanks, as always.

I have ET, Prometheus and Great Mouse Detective all pre-ordered from Amazon...but I'm three seconds away from canceling Prometheus for the same reason as Adam.  Part of me wants to punt ET, too, but I'm all about the free shipping.  I've been buying WAY too many movies lately.

Can anyone tell me whether they think BB will accept both the trade-in $5 coupon and a Universal $3 coupon on one Blu-ray?

I've done this a handful of times without issue. In fact, on one occasion, I used the U&S coupon, the Universal $3 off coupon, and a $5 Reward Zone certificate all at the same time on a single purchase.

Thanks! I will give it a shot, then. You have to save, where and when you can! It looks like maybe ET digibook and another Universal title for me, along with Prometheus. Thanks, Mike Frezon, for putting this together every week. I always use your information, even when not buying.

I'm working on the Eclipse box set as we speak. Hopefully the review can go up tomorrow. As for this week's Fox titles, well, when they arrive, I'll get to work on them.

DIAL M FOR MURDER (already have it pre-ordered)

STRANGERS ON A TRAIN

DEAD RINGER

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?

E.T. - at Best Buy or Target - don't know which yet.

PROMETHUS 3D


But not all this week.  No way.  I'm at a point in this incredible season when things that aren't critical because of a special edition or special deal will have to start waiting for a while.  I need to go back to keeping a want list!

This is a re-release of I Love Lucy (still by Paramount). Amazon lists the release date of seasons 5-9 as Nov 6, 2012. If Target has them this week, then it probably IS a Target exclusive. The release date of seasons 1-4 is Oct 9, 2012. The packaging has definitely changed. I don't know if the disks themselves have changed.

Thanks for the roundup and BB's Upgrade and Save heads up :cool: Went over to swap the three Alien movies but 'Aliens' was out of stock, picked up "Taken" instead, the Customer desk didn't even know the program was back today again and were trying to brush me off, had to show them the flyer, they had no "coupons" to give out, so after a short conference with manager they figured out how to do it without coupons..will go back for Aliens this week hopefully they'll have coupons by then...:rolleyes: By the way the Alien movies plus those others listed above @14.99 are all 9.99 this week. For the same price they also had for trade Fargo, Pulp Fiction, Something about Mary, plus many other that were available last time around,

I don't think there's any doubt to any of that, Larry.  I just think it's an odd exclusive for Target (and possibly an aggravating retailer exclusive for I Love Lucy fans).  If they don't have access to a Target...they've got to wait a month before completing a set.

ET for me this week.  One of the things that will make me happy about this upgrade is that I always HATED the fact that there was nothing printed on the spine of the ET DVD release.  Horrible packaging.  As long as the Target steelbook has printing on the spine identifying the title...I might go with that.  Otherwise, it'll be off to Best Buy for a digibook.


I'm not OCD about this sort of thing...but that DVD packaging for ET always bugged me!
