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).

Thanks Mike. If I get anything among new releases this week, it would be Ant-Man, but I'm not sure if I'll do that now or later.

Thanks for the early RoundUp, Mike!


I'll be reviewing four of this month's Twilight Time releases whenever they find their way to my door. Ron's already done Ant-Man so I don't know that I'll get it to review, too. But I'll certainly have it for my collection at some point.

Thanks, Mike! I'll be picking up Speedy at the next B&N sale and the delightful Capra "You Can't Take it With You" is coming via Santa.

Same for me, Steve! I can wait on Speedy until the next Criterion sale. (Or doesn't B&N do a 40% Blu sale just before Christmas?!? :biggrin: ) Maybe I'll pull the trigger then!


I'm not a big fan of the Despicable Me films. But I always figured a film featuring the minions must be pretty funny. What do you guys think? I'll probably wait until I find it supremely cheap (like you can find the Despicable Me movies nowadays) or wait until I see it USED somewhere.


===============


Thanks to everyone for the "likes" of the OP. And thanks for reading the RoundUps each week!

40% sale 12/15 - 12-24. If you have a store there should be some 25 or 30% coupons available so $16-18 is pretty typical.

I've still got a 20% coupon (mailed to me) burning a hole in my pocket, too. Guess I'm all set.


I KNEW you'd show up with those specifics, David. As always, thank you.

It appears that You Can't Take it With You will be under a lot of Christmas trees this year, mine included.

Holding off for the next Criterion sale for Speedy so the only other film this week is The Crooked Way.


Thanks again, Mike, for the Weekly RoundUp, this week and every week! We appreciate it.

I loved the minion parts of the Despicable Me movies. Making it a full length movie just didn't have the same hilarity.

Whoops. Messed up the Mike Quote part of my above post, and I don't see an "edit" option.

Ant Man is coming, but that's going to be it. Still working on Christmas and then we're going away for a week.


I may look at the Criterion sale (got an e-mail over the weekend) and see if I can justify anything... :)
