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'll pick up Schindler's List this week. Then I have to find a time when I want to go through the emotional wringer of watching it. Wreck-It-Ralph was alot of fun and definitely worth a rental for those that haven't seen it. Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

Slowest week since right after Christmas; nothing for me this week. Next couple weeks hold interest, though. Thanks as always, Mike.

Is it just me, or are The Specials unexpectedly slim pickin's this week? I would've at least expected Ralph to have some retailer exclusives. Incidentally, The Disney Store is doing their usual $10/ $20 coupon pre-order deal, but they are no longer giving out lithographs. Apparently they are telling people that the pre-order lithographs are permanently retired, which is unfortunate.

Matt:  I'm on it.


I reported to the owners a couple of weeks ago that the link to the review page is broken.  I rely upon that to find all the reviews that are done in advance of any given week's releases.

Without being able to access that page, I've got no idea which reviews have been done for any week's new releases.  Sorry about that.

And just as I'm typing this response, I see tha the quote function doesn't seem to be operating correctly.  i think we're going to making this upcoming move just in time.

EDIT:  I'm referring to the "See All Featured Reviews" link at the top of this page in the right-hand column (at the top of the list of the most recent five reviews).

Thanks for the Roundup, Mike. The Intouchables is way too expensive, but I'll get it anyway because it is an extremely special film. Anyonne who has not already seen it during its theatrical run last summer (and based on the grosses that seems to be most people) should make a point of renting it. In other parts of the world where it was a big success, it got a 2-disc special edition, so seeing it come to Region 1 in such a lame edition is extremely disappointing. But the film is worth having and rewatching frequently, so I got it., and I'd encourage others to do the same. Ralph, too, this week. Thanks!

Thanks for the link. It actually prints out with an image of the 4-disc combo on the coupon. Has anyone tried to use this for the 2-disc version? Knocking $7 off the price of the 4-disc would make it $20.99, or $1 more expensive than the 2-disc, but if you could apply it to the 2-disc, then the 2-disc would go down to $12.99 at Target which would be WONDERFUL. (I have no use for 3D or digital copy.)

I used the coupon for the 2-disc at Best Buy and also price-matched to get the Target price so I got $12.99 as well.
