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 are three new releases from Twilight Time this week: In Like Flint, Nicholas and Alexandra and Pony Soldier. Each can be found HERE at Screen Archives Entertainment and ordered for $29.95 apiece.
--I guess this is the week that the single disc blu Bond titles lose their various retailer exclusivity and all such titles will now be showing up on more shelves in more stores. I'm not going to list the various prices again here...you folks (if you don't already have what you want) can figure what the prices of these titles will be.

--Best Buy has an EXCLUSIVE BLU-RAY/DVD COMBO PACK of Rise of the Zombies ($9.99).
--BB also has an EXCLUSIVE 3-D BLU/BLU/DVD/DIGITAL COPY/UV COPY of Silent Hill: Revelation ($27.99).

--And, BB has EXCLUSIVE CONTENT on its copies of the WCW: Best of Monday Nitro release this week.
--Best Buy has the following Blu-ray titles on sale this week:

$9.99: Campaign (DVD $9.99)
$14.99: The Dark Knight Rises (DVD $9.99), Campaign (Combo Pack)

$19.99: Paranormal Activity 4 (Combo Pack) (DVD $14.99), Hit and Run (Combo Pack) (DVD $14.99)

$24.99: Finding Nemo (Combo Pack)

$29.99: Finding Nemo (3-D), Die Hard Collection (includes $10 Movie Money to see A Good Day to Die Hrrd. In theaters 2-14-13).
$34.99: Justified: Season 3 (DVD $29.99), Star Wars OT, Star Wars PT.
$79.99: Star Wars Complete Saga
$149.99: Bond 50
$169.99: Friends: Complete Series
--Pre-order The Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn: Part 2 (in stores March 2) and get EXCLUSIVE EARLY ACCESS TO BONUS CONTENT (25 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from the film in HD via CinemaNow).

--Best Buy Odds and Ends: A list of single Bond Blu-ray titles for $7.99
--Target, this week, says it has something EXCLUSIVE in connection with their DVD and Blu-ray releases of Weeds: Season 8...but NOWHERE does the ad identify the exclusive. Quantities limited, no rainchecks.
--Target Odds and Ends: A list of $4.75 DVDs which also includes the following Blu titles: When Harry Met Sally & American Psycho.

Thanks Mike! What did anyone think about the Robot and Frank? I saw a trailer recently and I am very intruged, but disappointed in a lack of Blu-ray. Skyfall is a no-brainer and we will be giving away some copies!

I enjoyed Robot and Frank, I thought of it as a drama that just happened to be set in a world where robots are personal assistants. The cast was great and I was really pleased I caught it when it played locally.

Skyfall and Nurse Jackie: S4 are both on their way to me from Amazon. I don't have any premium TV channels so the yearly wait to get my Nurse Jackie fix is very difficult for me...

Definitely Skyfall for me this week. Pers of Being a Wallflower and Robot and Frank are possibilities.

I loved this season of Nurse Jackie. Bobby Canavalle added greatly to the season, and Merritt Weaver's character was also the best she's been (richly deserved her Emmy nomination).

I'm just waiting around for the review copies of this week's discs to get here. I haven't even gotten the Twilight Time releases even though others who purchased them have already received them.

How does that "exclusive" differ from the regular one? Inclusion of DVD and digital copy? Anything else?

Skyfall and probably will grab one or two old Bonds that I haven't picked up yet for BB's $7.99 price.

Already got the Redemption and TT titles. Criterions will have to wait until July. That leaves Skyfall, Weeds S8 to complete the collection -- I like S8 a lot though. Perks of Being a Wallflower a definite -- interesting I saw those on many shelves last week for sale. I just have to decide on the price. Next week is big -- Target advance ad is already being posted Monsters Rerelease at 22.99/27.99. Game of Thrones S2 Target with the exclusive at 29.99 for a major surprise Oh yeah Wreck It Ralph DMR $7 coupon has been released trough the ScottBrand Survey Site the same as Peter Pan. Wreck It Ralpj $7 Off Coupon

I'm really surprised that there's no Brick & Mortar exclusives on Skyfall. I'll be swinging by Best Buy tomorrow to pick it up. I'll redbox Perks of Being a Wallflower down the road. Hopefully that Target price on "Game of Thrones: Season 2" being leaked drives down the price at the other retailers, too. That's my must-have for next week.

I hope so too. I pre-ordered GOT S2 on Amazon when it dropped to $49.96 back in December. Would be nice if Amazon price matched Target.

Still $50 at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Game-Thrones-Complete-Blu-ray-Digital/dp/B0060MYM7O/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1360613653&sr=8-3&keywords=thrones

I'd be flabbergasted if Amazon doesn't drop the price on Game Of Thrones to match Target or Best Buy's price. $30 or $35 is the normal price now on popular HBO shows (Boardwalk Empire, Games Of Thrones, True Blood) during their first week of release.
