You can't shoot me! I have a very low threshold of death. My doctor says I can't have bullets enter my body at any time. [c][/c] Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, the week of the release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website...but it COULD still be in-stores! I only include the titles I feel like including. In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing every DVD. I have a lovely wife and a four-year-old son I'd rather spend time with. 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...like I do! Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

Insomnia is available in both Widescreen and Fullscreen versions...get the correct one. * Non-OAR discs are, as usual, entirely left off the Roundup. Example: Jackie Chan's Gen-Y Cops. Thanks to BooneG for the correction (see his post below). (Added in edit Sunday night near 7PM Cent.) * BEST BUY's got the hot deal with American Idol this week: Even though it's $3 more than Circuit City's price, it has the excluse 2nd "Bonus" Disc with: "features a day in the life of Justin, judges' profiles, and the Making of An Idol documentary". * However, a word about Best Buy: They have just raised their prices on DVD's, mostly across-the-board (not "totally", though; I'd say as much as 15% of the titles were spared...that may be generous, though). By-and-large, you will see that a $14.99 title has gone up to $17.99 (notice this week's release of The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming). A $19.99 title is now $22.99. A box set like The Naked Gun has gone up $3 as well ($39.99 to $42.99). Wait...those are all $3 price differences. How does that explain that Sister Wendy: The Complete Collection, released this Tuesday, is $20 MORE than the list price for that item? Be careful, and folks who automatically went to Best Buy (which ain't "Best" anymore), start getting into the habit of shopping around a bit more! * K-Mart has Insomnia for $19.95...and that's it for them this week. * Target's ad shows American Idol for $14.99, Windtalkers for $15.99, Insomnia for "Low Price" (next to $15.99, so maybe that's it), Sorority Boys for $19.99, and Law & Order for $59.99...I'm suprised they are going with the box sets lately! Just shows you how lucrative this stuff is. * In addition, Target has a couple of deals right now that have nothing to do with new releases: there is a display in some stores of DVDs "2 for $25". Titles include The Fog, which seems to ring up by itself at $12.50 (so it's not a package deal). The Carrie Special Edition was also mentioned, but this is not a Halloween promo, either...buncha different titles, I'm told, and near the registers. ALSO, they have a large number of titles at $5.99 each. Samples: Blair Witch Project, Creepshow, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, "10", My Blue Heaven, Simpatico, Singles, Billy Jack, Why Do Fools Fall In Love?, Maid To Order, Capricorn One, Punisher. * Also, FYE has a Columbus Day sale good through end-of-business this Monday (tomorrow). Titles for $14.99 each include From Hell (2-Disc), Resident Evil, The Others, John Q., Monster's Ball, 40 Days & 40 Nights, Ocean's 11. Terrific if you can also manage to use the $3-off coupon I published at the bottom of the Roundup a couple of weeks ago...it hasn't expired yet! It's not supposed to be used for double-discounting, but maybe you'll find a trainee who won't realize what the deal it. * CompUSA has no deals on new releases, but they've hatched some crazy scheme where you can buy 12 DVD's (from a choice of 23 titles, range $16.99-$19.99) and get a "famous maker" (brand not named) DVD player for "free". That's "free"...after you get all the savings and mail-in rebates. Value of the player is supposed to be $99.99...AND the player has a deal to get a free 13th DVD via mail-in offer. So if you know anyone near a CompUSA who's interested in starting a DVD collection, let them know and they can check it out. Sounds iffy to me, but I thought I'd mention it. * Borders: Just as a reminder, here and here are coupons for Borders to celebrate their new stores in Highland Park, IL. & La Habra, CA. They are good through 10/18...theoretically at any location in the US and Puerto Rico. Despite the headline on the coupon saying "20% off", there is a small-print disclaimer that states DVDs are limited to 15% off. Good luck, and happy hunting. The latest markdowns according to VideoTropics web site (DVD Title/Old SRP/New SRP): ------------------------- None this week. Next week, though: The 007 markdowns!
