I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don't want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I'd like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can't be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.
–Morgan Freeman as Ellis Boyd 'Red' Redding (Shawshank Redemption – 1994)

Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of 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 or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

$_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that 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 only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). 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. 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...like Dave & I do!

Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the standard Roundup: they set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. When it comes to Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".

Aladdin for sure...Deep Impact and Untouchables are going to be in-store decisions. Farscape and Shawshank are definately going to have to wait for the overtime paycheck.

Thanks Mike!

A pretty light week, with only Aladdin, and (if reviews indicate improved picture quality), Shawshank Redemption.

Thanks Mike.

Geez, huge week. Far. 9/11, Aladdin, Shawshank, Friday 13th are def's, and War Room + Deep Impact will be in store decisions. thanks again guys.




(btw digital bits had the cover art for day after tomorrow under this date .. they must've been wrong, does anyone have the correct date for this one? I'm kinda upset as I was looking forward to seeing that movie again this week. Then again, I could probably use one less title, as I'm already way over budget!)

Thanks for the pointer. I went to that thread, and it appears that WB isn't sending out any screeners, so hopefully the director's intention to improve the PQ is fulfilled on the actual disc. :)

Great DVD week;

definately Shawshank, Aladdin, and Farenheit for me; POSSIBLY Untouchables, don't know if it's worth the double dip just yet.

I thought I had heard the single-disc Godfather 2 was supposed to come out this week; any news on that?
