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).

Looks like that's entertainment is now in slim cases. I wonder what this new edition of The Point has as its now a "definitive" edition. I think there was two versions, one with Ringo as the narrator and one with Dustin Hoffman. Anyway that show scared the crap out of me as a very young kid when I first saw it. Everyone's head was shaped to a point and one guy had three faces and kept spinning around to each face. The dog was creepy too, his name was Arrow. Also anyone who wants to see it free The Dust Bowl airs n PBS this week.

Mike, on that list of 3D Blu-rays for $14.99 from Best Buy, do you know which Titanic is listed? The James Cameron movie or the History Channel special? I suppose it's too much to hope for that it's the movie, which would be a real steal.

The movie:  "Limited Edition 3-D."  They only show the spine...but that wording is identical to the way its shown on the front cover.

And you are correct. The BB website is now reflecting that awesome price! I just put in my order for in-store pickup!

Does anyone know if this release of the Alain Delon version of ZORRO is the full, uncut version? The reviews from Amazon (all for old releases) indicate that the only extant versions seem to be rather butchered ones...

There's got to be a joke in there....the BD version of Heaven's Gate is cheaper than the DVD version. :confused: First prize is a ticket to Newark. Second prize is TWO tickets to Newark.

Nothing for me this week. While I don't feel the need to own The Expendables 2, it was just as crazy and fun as the first one. Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

I'll have the review up for the Eclipse 37 box set later today. Criterion's Heaven's Gate hasn't come in yet, but I expect it presently. The Expendables 2 got sent to Adam instead of me, so it's having to cross the country before I can get a review up.


Thanks for the RoundUp!

Alright, here's a question for all the smart people: is there a way to add an item on Amazon to an existing order?  I preordered the Cinderella 2 pack months ago and it has not shipped yet.  Is there a way to add other items to that order?  (This is going to be important later this week, according to my "ouch, my wallet hurts!" calendar.)


And regular business: Amazon is price matching the BB price on Star Wars...getting it.  And maybe some of the 3D's at BB when I venture out today.

The Amazon chat just told me you can't use free shipping and combine.  I tried to change the shipping and then combine...no dice.  So I cancelled Cinderella II and reordered with Star Wars.  Enough of fooling with that.

This is the first post from the mobile version of the site I have made. Returned from Best Buy today. The Artist was on sale for $14.99 and was part of the BOGO sale. Breaking Bad S4 also rang up at $11.99 if anyone is interested. Love their 3D pricing this week. Tempted to go back and get I Robot but I am so backed up at the moment with 3D titles.
