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

--At Best Buy, this week, no Sunday flyer listing any specials. 


--Target this week is advertising a price of $26.99 on a 4-disc Blu set of The Spider-Man Trilogy


--Target has the following recent releases on sale this week (all DVD unless noted otherwise):

$14.99:  The Book Thief, 12 Years a Slave, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Baggage Claim, Enough Said.
$16.99:  The Wolf of Wall Street.
$18.99:  Ride Along.

$19.99:  The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (Blu Combo Pack)

$22.99:  Marvel's The Avengers (Blu CP)


--Target Odds and Ends: Some "Kids' Favorites" DVDs 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!

Link from House on Sorority Row sending me to Master of the House.

Otherwise, Get Carter x 2, Conspiracy Theory, and Sorcerer all on order.

Criterions still be saved for July.

Chances Are pretty good I will own that one by Christmas -- recycle that story line is various forms
and it seems to work more often than not.

July's gonna be expensive for me this time out.

 

Nothing this week; anticipating the arrival of my ($73.99!) Rodgers & Hammerstein Collection next week!

This doesn't happen very often: I'm not waiting on any review copies for this week's releases! But, I'm still playing catch-up with releases from earlier in the month, and I've got some items that are coming out in May!

 

 

I'm waiting on the pre-ordered Hit the Deck and will Get Carter soon. I'll wait on Sorcerer which because it's a digibook is priced higher than usual vault titles. I'll probably have to wait a year to get it at a price I want to pay, but that's OK.

 

Thanks, Mike!

This Carter's on board for Get Carter, and a better deal on Sorcerer (BB reward certificate?)

Doesn't look like a buying week for me, unless there's a good deal later in the week. Thanks Mike!

No kidding.  I've broken all previous records on each of the last three or four B&N sales, and this one looks to be just as humongous.

Conspiracy Theory for me thank goodness it's going to be a light week. And thanks as always to Mike for putting together.

 

Also, for those who want this BD, Amazon's price dropped to $9.96 today.

If you're intetested in around a 20% discount

WBSHOP has Sorcerer for $20 and Get Carter's for a bit over $9. If you can find another item or 2 then
RETAIL20HE coupon is active again which gives a "20% off $50" price. It won't let you stack other coupons
like it did a couple weeks ago, but it still pretty good.

Free Shipping for $35 in Movie purchases (+tax in around 15-20 states).

Thinking about "Get Carter" (1971).

Have already pre-ordered "Spectacular Spider-Man:Complete Series" on Blu.
It's arguably the best TV media incarnation of Spidey and I can't believe we're actually getting it on Blu-ray!
