Donkey : You're supposed to say "You have the right to remain silent!". No one said I have the right to remain silent!
Shrek : Donkey, you HAVE the right to remain silent. What you lack, is the capacity.

–Eddie Murphy as Donkey/Mike Myers as Shrek (Shrek 2 – 2004)

Criterion Collection 2004 Holiday Gift Set is an Amazon.com exclusive. For information on the 241 titles (on 281 discs) included…CLICK HERE!

Shrek 2 will not be released until Friday, 11/5/04!

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".


**BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Shrek 2 AND Fast Times at Ridgement High AND Around the World in 80 Days (2004) AND Dazed and Confused AND Ali G indahouse are all available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one.

--Amazon is still featuring free shipping on orders over $25. Restrictions apply.

--Best Buy is offering a bonus disc on Shrek 2. The exclusive on-pack disc: “includes a link to the Best Buy Shrek 2 Green Room Web site with access to a Counting Crows concert streamed live on Tuesday, November 16, plus additional special features. Details on web site. Also, storyboard-to-screen feature, games, and activities. Minimum 300 per store. No rainchecks.”

--Best Buy is also advertising a bonus disc in its copies of Star Trek: TOS Season 2. The bonus disc “includes Star Trek Favorite Moments where celebrities, cast, crew and fans recall their favorite memories from the original series. Includes cast members from Enterprise, Voyager and Deep Space 9. Minimum 10 per store. No rainchecks.”

--Best Buy is also offering a two pack of Dazed & Confused & Fast Times at Ridgement High. This doesn’t seem exclusive but I haven’t seen it offered anywhere else. The 2-DVD set sells for $19.99. Separately, each title sells for $12.99 at BB.

--Best Buy is offering a series of great prices on great movies to the members of its Reward Zone Program. How about $12.99 for Goodfellas SE, The Good, Bad, and Ugly SE, Scarface (Anniv. Ed.), True Romance, Se7en, Snatch (Superbit), Amadeus SE, Fight Club (2-disc), Boogie Nights, Great Escape SE, Die Hard (5-star), ID4, Citizen Kane, Schindler’s List, and The Color Purple? :emoji_thumbsup: $17.99 for non-members. :thumbsdown:

Thanks for the hard work Mike and Patrick. Dr. Strangelove, Shrek 2, and The Golden Collection for me this week. I'll check the price for Strangelove (assuming they carry it) at Costco and post it here, unless someone beats me to it.

Gone With The Wind and Harry Potter in the coming weeks; what a strong (and expensive) month November is shaping up to be.

Thanks Mike. Fairly strong week, especially Dr. Strangelove and Looney Tunes. I won't be picking it up, but I love that you included the Criterion collection in the roundup. :emoji_thumbsup: :laugh:

This has been well documented: Blame Jeffrey Katzenberg. He did this on purpose to try and take a little steam out of the opening weekend boxoffice numbers for The Incrediblies.

He also did the same thing with the original Shrek home video release. (I forgot what Disney movie that Friday release date matched up with.)

Friday, who stupid idea was it to release a dvd on Friday, when every someone who buys movies should be on a date....I mean I will get Shrek this week. Even so I need to find out of the boxset OAR infomation first.

Great update Mike once again. :emoji_thumbsup:

Fight Club 2-disc SE at Best Buy for $12.99? I thought that was out of print. Guess I'll have to stop by to pick that up. Oh, and Shrek 2 on Friday...right before I go see The Incredibles

I won't be getting Shrek 2 (we saw it in the theater, but my son only likes Shrek 1, not Shrek 2), but I noticed in the local Eckard's ad that they have it for $14.99. Of course, it's quite possible that they'll only have p&s, but thought I'd pass that on for anyone who has an Eckard's near them.

Kenneth: Its my understanding that all of the box-sets involved in this week's Shrek 2 release are MAR only. That was why they were all left out of the RoundUp. I THINK the only way to get the OAR of Shrek & Shrek 2 is to buy them individually.



If anyone finds out differently, please post here.

Looney Tunes - The Spotlight Collection - Volume 2: $18.89

That what I been hearing too Mike, even so I heard reports about it being in widescreen. But after the Prequel flicks box set from a few years ago...I am not surprise. Too bad huh, since you can't find a widescreen Shrek anymore.
