    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.

    "LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

    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, 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, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    The Specials

    **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Crank AND The Illusionist are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one !

    --I believe it is safe to say that The Night Listener will be a available for $19.99 at many retailers and e-tailers. It might be the first time in RoundUp history a title has clocked in at the exact same price at all five locations!

    --At Best Buy, 2 FREE HD-DVDs (World Trade Center and Jet Li’s Fearless), instantly, with the purchase of Toshiba HD-DVD player Model HD-A2 ($499.99).

    --A 2/$25 deal @ Best Buy! Buy any TWO of the following THREE DVDs and get the two DVDs for $25 ($16.99 apiece): High School Musical: Remix Edition, Cheetah Girls 2, Hannah Montana: Livin’ the Rock Star Life. Must be purchased on same receipt.

    --Episode 1 of Rome: Season 2 is FREE at Best Buy with the purchase, this week, of ANY HBO title. While supplies last. Minimum 20 per store.

    --Best Buy Odds & Ends: Best Buy has a number of good titles on a $5.99 sale this week (such as the 26th AE of The Jerk). Also, BB has a bunch of recent releases on a 2/$20 sale (including such titles as the 15th AE of Reservoir Dogs and United 93).

    --Circuit City has an EXCLUSIVE FREE SYRINGE INK PEN (reminiscent of the Ice Pick pen in that long ago edition of Basic Instinct?) with the purchase of Crank on DVD.

    --A 2/$25 deal at Circuit City this week, too! Buy both Idiocracy ($19.99) AND Office Space SE ($9.99) and get both DVDs for $25. Must be purchased on same receipt.

    ----Episode 1 of Rome: Season 2 is also FREE at Circuit City with the purchase, this week, of ANY HBO title. While supplies last. Minimum 10 per store.

    --Circuit City Odds & Ends: CC also has a special sale list of DVDs for $4.99 apiece this week.

    --Another quiet week for specials at Target this week…although they have lots of LOW prices on this week’s new releases!

    Another SLOW week this week - nothing for me, but thanks as always Mike and Patrick.

    If Salma and Penelope were in SoaP, I might have actually seen it. [​IMG] You just can't get that movie out of your head, can you Mike? I believe that should be Bandidas, which I had never heard of until it was discussed on a DVD podcast I listened to on Friday.

    A comment on Bandidas: "cat fighting for fans of physical comedy and general perverts." [​IMG] www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=23426 IMDB says "the film was finally given a 22 September 2006 [theatrical release] date and was an exclusive Cinema Latino Theatres chain release", making this nearly a direct to video release. A commenter on IMDB says "the film introduces us to Penelope Cruz's Maria playing Tic Tac Toe with her horse in the dirt. It is one of many scenes in "Bandidas" that hearkens the silliness of Laurel & Hardy." [​IMG]

    Thanks for the Roundup! Another bye week for me (which will probably continue until February.

    Congratulations! You won't regret this purchase. The single funniest sitcom hands down (in my opinion). Enjoy the numerous bonus features.

    Again a quiet week for me. There's only 2 that I want during the entire month of January that I know about. I still read over the list since something I was unaware of could sneak in. [​IMG]

    But Then comes February and March and I already have at least 2 purchases a week for those 8 weeks.

    Gives my wallet a chance to heal before another battering [​IMG] [​IMG]

    As usual, wonderful work guys! And thanks!

    I'll be picking Extras: Season One. I'd highly recommend that any fan of The Office check out Ricky Gervais' new show too. Season Two starts next week on HBO.

    If you guys only knew the half of it. I was in bed all day Friday and Saturday with one of those nasty, high-fever "please put me out of my misery" illnesses. I got the damn RoundUp done Saturday and I asked Patrick to post it up for me at the witching hour because there was NO WAY I was going to make it up that late! [​IMG] In a pitch of hallucinatory fever, I wondered to myself if there was ANY way this RoundUp would be without error. I guess we know the answer! [​IMG]

    Bandidas it is. Although critics were not necessarily kind, there was a bit of notoriety surrounding it's production and publicity campaign:
