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).

Posted up a little early tonight folks as I continue to be way off my normal schedule.


But, I am out of the hospital (thanks again to Adam Gregorich for last week's assist!) and home now for what looks to be a bit of a lengthy recuperation.


But we keep moving forward--mostly because it is hard to hit a moving target.


Thanks to everyone for their support and well-wishes over the last several weeks!

Thanks as always Mike. Nothing for me this week, Hope you feel better soon! To quote Blade Runner (because a Blade Runner quote is always good). "You've done a mans job sir!"

Hope you feel better soon, Mike - glad you're back home. Hospitals are terrible places to be in sometimes.

Tower Heist and Martha Marcy May Marlene are possible rentals, but nothing to buy this Tuesday. Next Tuesday looks more expensive. Keep on getting better, Mike!

Thanks as always for the RoundUp. Hope you get better and better as each day passes.


I did request a review copy of Martha Marcy May Marlene, but it has not arrived. I assume it'll get here at some point this week so I'll have a review up ASAP.

Fort Apache looks like it for me this week, other than Anatomy of a Murder which I pre-ordered.

I can't help but think J. Edgar is going to be much, much lower in the not too distant future. The same idea like Aviator for $9.99 fairly regularly right now and things like that. If it doesn't, no harm, no foul. I enjoyed the movie but I don't know if I need to own it.

Nothing on this end this week. I'm completely out of room, so I need to figure that out, first.


Really awesome to have you back, Mike. Take it easy for a while.

I've heard good things about Marcy May... which I'll rent, along with Anatomy of a Murder which I don't think I've ever seen before.


Glad to hear you are home as that's hopefully a good sign of recovery!

Glad to read that you're home, Mike! Prayers for you continue as you march forward to recovery.


Lots of good titles this week. I'll pick up Anatomy of a Murder at the next B&N CC sale....also a couple of guilty pleasures (Matlock and Underdog)....the latter will be introduced to the next generation (not that I won't be watching also :) ) Another Wayne title on BD is always a good thing also.

Glad to see you're finally well enough to return home now, Mike!


And thanks much for yet another WRU, especially given the amount of rest you probably need... Cheers!


Peace...
