The Disclaimer Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. 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, 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 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, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway). The Specials --There's some strange stuff going on this week (I swear Black Friday throws off everyone's equilibrium! ): Best Buy, in its Sunday flyer has a single disc version of Inception that no one else has--yet they are NOT calling it an EXCLUSIVE. Also, Target has some kickass prices on the combo packs for the new Shrek release and Inception--killing everyone else's pricepoint. And, there is split release date on the 3-D release of The Universe: Seven Wonders of the Solar System. Some say it is this week. Others (like Amazon) claim it is January 11. Normally, I would go with the later date...but since this title prominently appears in BB's Sunday flyer, i thought I'd mention it here. --Best Buy, this week, has an EXCLUSIVE COMBO PACK OF INCEPTION WHICH INCLUDES "INCEPTION: THE SHOOTING SCRIPT" for $29.99. Includes the director's initial handwritten notes of the Inception plot. Minimum of 2 per store. No rainchecks. --Best Buy is also advertising an EXCLUSIVE TALKING PACKAGE with its copies of Shrek: The Whole Story. (As is often the case, they don't make it clear if this applies to BOTH the DVD & Blu-ray versions.) Minimum of 2 per store. No rainchecks. --Best Buy is also advertising some bonus content from Shrek: The Whole Story through use of a smartphone and a special code printed in the flyer. --Best Buy has the following 3-D Blu-ray discs on sale for $29.99 this week. Many more great deals in store and on-line. My Bloody Valentine, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Monster House, The Last Airbender, Open Season, A Christmas Carol (Disney). --Best Buy has the following Blu-ray discs on sale this week (Many more great deals in store and on-line): $9.99: The Departed, The Ugly Truth, American History X, The Wrestler, Slumdog Millionaire, The Taking of Pelham 123, The Human Centipede, Hancock, Gran Torino, Watchmen. $14.99: Sherlock Holmes, The Blindside, 2012, The Hangover, Boondock Saints II, Ninja Assassin, Zombieland, I Love You Man, Where the Wild Things Are, Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. $19.99: Predators, Toy Story, The Last Airbender, Killers, Percy Jackson/Olympians, The Princess and the Frog, Robin Hood, Eat Pray Love, Wall*E, Get Him to the Greek. --Best Buy has the following TV Shows on DVD on sale this week for $19.99: Dexter: Season 2, Entourage: S5, Californication: S2, MadMen: S2, Castle: S1, NCIS: S6, Six Feet Under: S5, Scrubs: S2, Flight of the Conchords: S2 9. Some of those seasons are educated guesses. The ad just shows the spines of the titles and some of that print is hard to make out. Many more great deals in store and on-line. --Best Buy Odds and Ends: A list of DVDs for $4.99 apiece. --At Target this week no real specials to speak of (outside of those great prices on the Inception and Shrek Combo Packs released this week. It is just amazing that they are selling both of those Combo Packs for the same price that they are listing the stand-alone DVD copies. They are also advertising some gift-wrapped copies of Shrek Forever After on DVD and Combo Pack for the same price of $17.99. --Target Odds and Ends: None to report. --At Ultimate Electronics, the week's new releases titles are as follows: Inception ( Combo Pack $21.95 , DVD $14.95), Shrek Forever After (Combo Pack $21.95, Blu-ray only $18.95, DVD $15.95), Shrek Forever After + Donkey's Christmas Shrektacular (DVD $17.95), Shrek: The Whole Story (Blu-ray $38.95, DVD $26.95). --UE also lists the following 3-D Blu-ray discs: $27.95: Alice in Wonderland (2009 Disney) $24.95: Cats & Dogs, IMAX Space Station, IMAX Under the Sea, Clash of the Titans, The Polar Express. $19.95: Open Season, Monster House, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 2010 FIFA Official Film. $14.95: IMAX Wild Ocean, IMAX Dinosaurs Alive!, IMAX Grand Canyon Adventure. --UE also has the following Blu-rays listed for $9.95 (the first five titles, in bold, also carry $10 in movie cash to see "Little Fockers."): 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Baby Mama, Role Models, Horton Hears a Who, Ice Age: The Meltdown, Ice Age, The Wild, Alvin & Chipmunks/Squeakquel, Meet the Robinsons, Chicken Little, Dinosaur, Night/Smithsonian II, National Treasure, National Treasure 2, Princess Bride, Marley and Me, PotC: Dead man's Chest, PotC: Curse of Black Pearl, Remember the Titans, Independence Day.
