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!).

If there is a title not included in the [COLOR= rgb(255, 0, 0)]RoundUp[/COLOR] 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 [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).

Thanks Mike and Pat! I just love that G-Force, Inglorious Bastards and Hungover Blu-rays are all cheaper than their 2 disc DVD versions! Would be nice if that trend continues.

Nothing for me...still haven't had time to watch my Perry Mason set for last week!


And Mike, remember the "good old days" when all the retailers sold all the same versions of the same movie? It's getting out of hand!

Well, for the first time in years, a movie is going on my Christmas list. That Friends complete series box looks great on sale and I eye it every single time I'm in the store. Now no one can ever accuse me of buying everything I want.

I'll be picking up Inglourious Basterds (so far, the best movie I've seen this year) on Blu-ray. I don't want to wait but I guess I'll ask for the Boogie Nights Blu-ray for Christmas.

Thanks for the prices, guys!

I'm considering getting G-Force on BD at Target (depending on the price) and using the Disney $10 off coupon ([url=http://www.hometheaterforum.com/forum/thread/295786/g-force-blu-10-off-coupon-tinkerbell-lost-treasure-10-off-plus]http://www.hometheaterforum.com/forum/thread/295786/g-force-blu-10-off-coupon-tinkerbell-lost-treasure-10-off-plus[/url]) and a $5.00 Target BD coupon. I'd really like to get Public Enemies on BD at Target using the $3 coupon and the $5 Target BD coupon, but I'm guessing that Target will have it priced at $25 - $30 or so this week. I'll check Patrick's Target Blu-ray list next week in hopes that Public Enemies is on sale for $20.

The Hangover seems to be getting an odd pricing from the looks of pre-order vs in store.
15.99 Preorder prices, but all the ad's have it at 19.99 -- with tax even with the $5 off Target coupon it's cheaper to order off Amazon.


G-Force is listed at 19.96 in this week's Walmart circular so with a price match at Target plus the 2 coupons, it's possible to get it for 4.96. This depends on whether you Target forces the coupons prior to the PM or allows it tacked on afterwards. It's looks like it will sell for 22.99 in store so $7.99 seems to be easily obtainable as long as the online price is the B&M (with Target that isn't always a guarantee.

Ingl Basterds looks to be the bargain at Target this wieek with the $8 off.


Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure is at Best Buy at 16.99 this week so with the $10 coupon from Disney Rewards I think 6.99 is the going best price if you ,missed the TRU Target Price match from Fri/Sat.


I still can't find a decent deal on "Julie and Julia" and "Funny People"

Just Star Trek Season 3 on Blu for me. Guess i will spring for the Amazon set. Best Buy's price just isnt good enough for me to fight the holiday crowd this week.

Hey Rick, yeah the BB price on Trek is kinda high. But I'll still get it there so I can have it on release day! I figure the slightly higher price is for the inclusion of Where No Man has Gone Before.

Man, I could really go to town with those Target $5 BD coupons. Hangover, Inglorious Bastards, ID4, Predator, A Bug's Life ....

I feel like Robin Williams shopping for coffee in "Moscow on the Hudson."

Thanks for the heads up on the Inglourious Basterds BD deal at Target. Just went ahead and cancelled my Amazon preorder (for $17.99-$0.90 Gold Box offer).

And thanks as usual to Mike (and Pat) for the Weekly Roundup.

Here's the description of the Inglourious Basterds bonus disc from Best Buy's site:

"Go behind the scenes with legendary director Quentin Tarantino with this Best Buy exclusive bonus disc. It features a wide-ranging, more-than-60-minute interview with the celebrated filmmaker."

I was thinking that the bonus disc would be more like a featurette or two but for an hour long interview, I'll probably spend the extra couple of bucks and pick it up.

And, Travis...thanks for that info on the Tarantino interview on the BB bonus disc. I wasn't giving that a thought...but any interview I've ever seen with QT has been really interesting. I might pay the extra $3 over the Target deal for that, too.

Decisions, decisions. I have been hearing such good things about this film!

I loved it but I think it might help to know up front that there's lots of talking (it is a Tarantino movie afterall) and that there's chunks of the movie where Brad Pitt and crew aren't the primary focus. Neither of those things bothered me but they were two common criticisms that I saw of the movie.
