    If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour...you're gonna see some serious shit!

    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.

    * BE CAREFUL! Back to the Future Trilogy, Minority Report, & Unfaithful are available in both Widescreen and Fullscreen versions...get the correct one. "See What You've Been Missing: SEE IT IN WIDESCREEN!" [​IMG]
    * Non-OAR discs are, as usual, entirely left off the Roundup. Example: The Country Bears.
    * Best Buy will give you a free "Collectable" watch, cheaply-made [​IMG] , when you purchase Back to the Future Trilogy (the watch is attached to the box; minimum 70 per store). Minority Report's purchase will get you a free CD-ROM which features a "Prevent the Crime" game and a "Making of the Minority Report video game"; minimum 300 per store.
    * Target's ad circular shows "Low Price" for Minority Report and Unfaithful, but you can probably expect these to sell for $15.99 each. $5 off on Unfaithful when you purchase either Don't Say a Word or High Crimes at the same time. "Instant-Redeemable Coupon Located On Movie". Back to the Future Trilogy is $39.99 and has a free cheaply-made keychain attached to the box. Bob The Builder: Bob Saves The Day checks in at $14.99, and An Evening with Kevin Smith can be had for $19.99.
    * K-Mart will take $5 off the total if you purchase Back to the Future Trilogy ($39.99) and E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial at the same time. Minority Report and Unfaithful are $19.95 each.
    * CompUSA also has Back to the Future Trilogy for $39.99 and Minority Report and Unfaithful for $19.99 each.

    Only getting Minority Report, since the BTTF trilogy has some framing problems.

    Your welcome, all. And my son IS feeling better, thanks to the combined efforts of my wife and myself. Always good to have a spouse willing to split the hard work with you. That must be one of the reasons she's a joy to be with.

    "Minority Report" for me at CC for $14.99.

    I'm holding off on BTTF as I'm not the biggest fan of parts 2 & 3 plus I also want to see what happens with the framing issue.

    Thanks Dave & hope your son feels better.

    Joe

    Circuit City did adjust my online preorder to match the Coconuts ad so I got it for $28 (110% off the original $50 preorder price difference). Plus I get 20% MSN dollar credit in Feb!

    Best Buy's ad shows The King of Comedy as being "available now", and stores were sent word to honor the ad for it, so if you want TKOC and can't wait until Tuesday, try Best Buy today or tomorrow.

    Unless Universal makes an announcement within the next few days, I am going to have my sister hold off from getting me BTTF for Christmas. If I do have her buy it, she'll be happy about the $35.97 price at Sams. I'm a little surprised Best Buy didn't beat them.

    None of the normal retail stores, like Best Buy or Circuit City, is going to try and beat the warehouse stores, like Sam's or Costco, since they require a paid membership to shop there.

    I might also pick up Unfaithful (but I'm wavering on that one for now - I figure it'll wind up being marked down by Fox sometime next year, so I could wait).

    David,

    Crocdile Hunter is $19.99 at Best Buy.

    Thanks for the round-up and glad to hear your kid is feeling fine.
    and if he's still under the weather, I'm sure BTTF will be a nice cure!
