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).

Doldrums is right, but Upgrade and Save is next week so deals to be had.

 

Django for sure though I haven't decided which version to get.   I not a huge fan of Steelbooks, but if it looks nice and it's the same price then why not  OR maybe I'll use some RZ points to knock the price down.    I may just have to go by which extras look better.

 

Walmart Exclusive is supposed to be $18.96 with there version of the exclusive disc  "Re-Imagining the Spaghetti-Western"

 

 

Repo Man is an absolute must buy, but probably going to wait until BN expected sale

 

 

And many thanks to the mod who moved the debris off the playing field and I apologize for posting in their thread at all.

I'm excited about Pollen, now renamed Wings of Life finally getting some sort of release here in the states, but I'm not paying $27.99 for it.  I'm guessing later this year I'll be able to pick it up for a lot less.

Thanks Mike.  Looks like this is a bye week as opposed to a buy week for me.  Good thing, wallet needs a rest.

Looks like Django Unchained for me.  I want to see what the steelbook edition looks like.  Keeps my streak going of having never seeing a Tarantino movie in the theater.

That's an insane price on Wings of Life.  It looks perfectly enjoyable, but man...that price isn't going to happen.  I'll just Netflix it at this point.

I'll be picking up Django Unchained this week. I'm willing to go to a specific store to get an exclusive but multiple store exclusives just makes me want to say screw them all and get the regular one from Amazon. At some point, I'll also get Repo Men.

 

Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

 

An off-week for me for sure.

I like the steelbook but the movie not so much. I do have some Shopkick cash so I might pick it up anyway.

Just Django for me. Looks like Walmart also has their own exclusive edition with a "making of" bonus disc. These store exclusives have really gotten out of hand...

Why?

My wife is not a fan, so I'm happy to wait until I see the movies at home.  I don't go to theaters much anymore anyway.

Somehow, I totally bypassed the new Iron Man animated movie coming out this week.  I usually pick these up on release week, but that price is going to drop within a month and I'm not in a rush to watch on Tuesday night.  So it can wait a while.

It can take a real long time for those DisneyNature prices to drop...but I think it's generally worth the wait.  Even after waiting for a couple of them to drop, then I've seen for sale used at a local rental shop. 

 

I'll be picking up Django Unchained this week. I'm willing to go to a specific store to get an exclusive but multiple store exclusives just makes me want to say screw them all and get the regular one from Amazon.

 

Retailer exclusives are just plain horrible.  IMHO they're even worse on CDs because they provide extra musical content.  But I still don't know why the studios want to put out different product to which some customers may not have access.  Just make one good product and make it available to everyone.

I'm sure stores pay the studios for access to that content.

 

I dont think they care who sells it.

Yeah, Disney titles in general don't go on sale very often and I'm okay waiting or checking out FYE/Half Price Books and all those other fun places for a cheaper copy...of this plus the other DisneyNature movies.

They should be thinking more about those who buy it...
