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).

Thanks for the prices, Mike!


Nothing else here on my review slate from the week. Expecting last week's Twilight Time titles any day.


A few titles that I'll be adding to the collection once I can take advantage of some sales.

Thanks for your work, Mike. The complete Miyazaki set looks awesome, but the price is too high. We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story is not too high, but given that I've bought a lot recently, I'm still putting it on the back burner for now but will get it eventually. Nothing else of interest this week.

Nothing this week, Mike, but thank you. I'm spending way too much money at JoAnn's and Michaels right now to buy any movies. :)

Thanks to everyone for the "likes" of the OP!


Quiet week for me, I will eventually pick up the Criterion In Cold Blood (maybe before the end of the ongoing B&N sale) and I would love someday to get those early Chaplin shorts--but I'll need to find a real good sale down the road sometime for that to happen.


I've got to learn more about that Sinatra release, too. It hasn't been on my radar at all.

That link to the Hobbit with Figurine Amazon Exclusive is not to the 3D version. I lost a pre-order because I thought it was the same, and canceled my pre-order. Only to find out this exclusive with figurine is only for the 2D version. Very misleading.

Mike. Truly sorry.


It was only misleading because it was dead wrong. I apologize for that and for any inconvenience it caused you and anyone else.


The listing has been fixed.

I'll be waiting on that Chaplin, too.

Will pick up THE APU TRILOGY and IN COLD BLOOD at a B&N later in the week, hopefully with the aid of a coupon or two.

Thanks for the round-up!

I ordered Chaplin direct from Flicker Alley and saved $20.

Shame the figurine set didn't come with 3D like the other films in the trilogy...

Amazon DOES have a listing for the Hobbit: BotFA figurine set with 3D, although it is showing as currently unavailable:


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015GKSXDE?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00


I pre-ordered this version on 10/7, and it is still showing as scheduled to arrive on Tuesday. I will report back when it arrives confirming it is 3D.


Hopefully they are just waiting on more stock to be allocated to them before re-opening orders.

Thanks Mike. Definitely some UNCLE for me, as I can't wait to see it again. Fun movie.

Thanks for the prices. I guess I'll be the only one buying DEATH NURSE 1 & 2. :D I'm really hoping they live up to their awful reputation.
