I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp[/COLOR]. 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!

Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the [COLOR= rgb(255, 0, 0)]RoundUp[/COLOR]. 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).

Its going to be a Disney 3D week for me this week. I'm interested in watching Atlas Shrugged even though there probably won't be a part 2 or 3. but I'm not sure if its something worth owning or just a rental. I've pre-ordered Cannonball Run and I'll be picking up Sharkboy and Lavagirl for the kids.


Thanks Mike!

Definitely a Harry Potter week for me and maybe the new Lego game. I spent way too much today and might rethink the game, at least. Thanks Mike!

So glad BB has the $40 off on the four Disney 3D titles making it easier for me to get all 4. And depending on the packaging for the final Potter 3D, I might be getting those too. Thanks for the roundup Mike!

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 2 Target version with documentary “When Harry Left Hogwarts. I normally don't go for the exclusive extras, but this one looks interesting to me. Thanks for the prices! It helps so much since we don't get the weekly paper.

Thanks for the Roundup, Mike. Starting on Fanny and Alexander today after I finish up Rawhide, but the review won't be up for F&A until late tomorrow night. With the 6 hour TV version and the 3 hour theatrical version plus feature length documentaries on the film and its maker, it's going to take a lot of time to get through it all.

I'll wear Blue Velvet this week. Also, I'll nab the last Harry Potter movie. Thanks for the prices! :)

Why no BB or Target price on Blue Velvet?
I can't speak for Mike but there's not much point of even listing prices if they're not in the ad. Best Buy has it for $25 (the MSRP) and Target has it for $16.79 but they don't carry it in store. I realize that catalog titles aren't big sellers for big box stores (especially something as relatively small as Blue Velvet) but I've given up on even looking at ads let alone buying catalog titles at BB and Target.

It's been a long time since I've answered a question like this. So, there's no time like the present!

No surprise that I get amazon's prices from their website. That, after all, is where they live. If Best Buy lists a new release title in their flyer...THAT's the price that makes the RoundUp. If not, the prices each week come from BestBuy.com. All Target prices come solely from the Target flyer.

I could not find a price for Blue Velvet at bb.com when I was putting the WRU together. And, it wasn't listed in the Target flyer.

Seeing as how bb.com is now showing the Blue Velvet at $24.99 (thanks, Travis!), I'll add it to the OP.

I will pick up Harry Potter, but I'm not sure from where. I'm intrigued by the Target exclusive version. Does anyone know anymore about the documentary on it? I plan to get Fanny & Alexander at some point and the Hitchcock set.

Target's website says, about the exclusive documentary, "BAFTA award-winning filmmaker Morgan Matthews has been given unprecedented access to the creative decision making processes that have been kept as a closely guarded secret - until now. Hear the personal stories of the faces we know, and those we don't, as we come to the end of one of the most successful eras in cinema history. " I personally am in for the Target exclusive, not only for the documentary but also for the cover art. That poster was awesome and I am glad they used it. Come to think of it, all the teaser posters for the Potter films have been superrior to most of the DVD art from Prisoner of Azkaban onwards. Wish they would use those more.
