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'm working on the first volume of Bonanza's seventh season, but I'm only on episode 9, so I'm not sure if it'll go up tomorrow night or Monday morning. There are more bonus materials than I was expecting with this classic western from the Golden Age.

 

Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike!

45 bucks for the Blu Ray of "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia"? That's got to be a mistake (not on Mike's part, but that Amazon price, more than double the DVD price)
STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

The Frankenstein Legacy Collection is different from the one Universal released a few years ago.  That one was only two discs, although disc 2 was a DSDL flipper.

 

The new one contains 4 discs, and adds the films Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman, House of Dracula,and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.

When I click on the link it goes to a Franky only disc on Amazon. Doesn't appear to be a multi-movie collection.

Nevermind. You were talking about the DVD and not the blu.

Did anyone else used to make up lyrics to television theme songs that didn't have any just for fun? These are not remotely the lyrics I would have come up with.

Didn't "Weird Al" just do that at the Emmy awards?

Pat Boone made up some lyrics for the theme music from Exodus.  When I was growing up I though the lyrics were original with the film. 

 

 

 

This land is mine
God gave this land to me
This brave and ancient land
To me

And when the morning sun
Reveals her hills and plains
Then I see a land
Where children can run free

So take my hand
And walk this land with me
And walk this lovely land
With me

Though I am just a man
When you are by my side
With the help of God
I know I can be strong

Though I am just a man
When you are by my side
With the help of God
I know I can be strong

To make this land our home
If I must fight, I will fight
To make this land our own
Until I die, this land is mine

Gene Roddenberry wrote some (cheesy) lyrics to the theme from Star Trek. They were never intended to be used, but they did allow Gene to pocket half the royalties for the music (which were paid every time the show aired).

Sweet mother o' god, that 30 movie Universal Monsters set looks damn tasty. Pity that they didn't do the Blu - aside from House of Dracula and the Abbot and Costello flicks (which I really don't care about) I've got the set already on DVD.

 

So those Mummy, Drac and Frank blus - those are just the same thing as the Ultimate Set from a couple of years ago, right? Just movies in individual packages.
