All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. "LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means 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, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. 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! 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! Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. 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, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. The Specials **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Cry Wolf (Unrated) AND Four Brothers CE AND Must Love Dogs AND Serenity are all available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one(s) ! Also, note that Cry Wolf AND The Great Raid are also being released in a Rated-version but it is MAR ONLY!...stay away!!! And, The Exorcism of Emily Rose is being released in BOTH a Theatrical Version and an Unrated version…get the one that’s right for you. Phew! This part of the RoundUp seems to be getting harder each week. What’s the deal with releasing theatrical cuts MAR-only…or four different releases of the same title at once (Rated/OAR, Rated/MAR, Unrated/MAR, Unrated/OAR or some similar variation on that theme)? --Target, this week, is advertising TWO EXCLUSIVE releases of John Ford movies: Mogambo (Clark Gable, Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly) and 3 Godfathers (John Wayne & Harry Carey, Jr.). They are $9.99 apiece. --Best Buy, this week, is offering an EXCLUSIVE with its copies of The Exorcism of Emily Rose—the 50-minute The Real Exorcist, as seen on A&E.

ER: Season 4 is on sale for $32.99. Although that price is bested by Target at $29.99, CC has ER: Seasons 1 thru 3 on sale for $19.99 each! THIS WEEK ONLY. Save up to $20.
