    Captain Shatner Takes On the "Klingons" and the "Borg" in the Ultimate Paintball Showdown!
    [c][​IMG][/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.

    * Non-OAR discs are, as usual, entirely left off the Roundup. Example: Quicksilver.
    * Best Buy will sell you Michael Jordan: The The Max for just $4.99 when you buy Like Mike at the same time. They will also sell you Phantoms (based on the Dean Koontz novel) for $4.99 when you buy Halloween: Resurrection at the same time. Anyone who needs the original Stuart Little to go along with the sequal, can pick up the special 2-in-1 version at Best Buy for $34.99, and instantly receive a $5 gift card to use on your next purchase. Finally, BB will give you a FREE DVD player (their choice) when you spend $124.99 to buy a pack containing the following 8 movies: Rocky SE, Mad Max SE, Usual Suspects SE, Terminator SE, Bull Durham SE, The Magnificent Seven, The Graduate, Silence of the Lambs (MGM).
    * Target has The Emperor's New Clothes for a stunning $14.99! They also have K-19: The Widowmaker for a more average $19.99, and Stuart Little 2 and Like Mike are both simply marked "Low Price".
    * K-Mart, on the other hand, doesn't seem shy about stating the prices of Stuart Little 2 and Like Mike: they both suck at $19.95, and clocking in at the same pricepoint is K-19: The Widowmaker and Land Before Time: The Journey to Big Water.
    * CompUSA similary has prices of $19.99 each on K-19, Stuart 2, & Like Mike.
    * Someone needs to get me the Shatner paintball thing as a gag gift. Really. I'd never buy it for myself, but the Trekkie in me wouldn't mind having it around as a conversation piece. Heh. Are any of my local friends or family reading this? [​IMG]
    * That's it, short week while we get ready next week for the most exciting release of the year, if you ask me! [​IMG]

    No price drops David? Ameile will be reduced in January. I already have an order in at ddd - $13.80! It might be just me but this seems to have been reduced very fast.

    The FOX chat with Peter Staddon wasn't that long ago, was it?

    I am totally underappreciated in my time. (Slinks away...)

    The server for his images is down, Tony. Expect it to reappear later on today.

    Anyway, a big douse of nothing this week. Will try to catch up with all release from this week and past weeks instead. Next week on the other hand is murder...and the Procogs know it.

    David, a long overdue thanks to you for your work on the roundup. Since I started back to school a couple of years ago, I haven't had time to keep up with HTF. I seldom post and don't read the other areas very often. But I come here religiously every week. I may not have time to watch many DVDs, but I haven't broken the habit of buying them [​IMG]. You have made the shopping job much easier and I appreciate it.
    Like others, I'm thankful for a light week: 6 on wish list, will buy 2 because the prices are too high on the others.
    Keep up the good work.

    David: I get it now. [​IMG] I just didn't make the connection.
    TonyD: I'm not upset with him, I just was not getting it. Is THAT how it looked? Sheesh!
    Terry: No price drops listed yet because VideoTropics has stopped listing them. I think it's either this week or next week that Fox is dropping price on a bucketload of titles. I have that archived somewhere, and will find and post it later if it is for the 10th. If it's for the 17th, I'll post it next week.
    Kenneth: Bingo on the reason for the X's. [​IMG]
    Dick: Thanks for the gratitude; it's appreciated!
    It really MUST be a light week when I'm only planning on $50 for the new releases!!! [​IMG]
