    (CC) after a title = New release in the Criterion Collection.

    Individual Titles in the Collections Listed Above:

    Eclipse 20: George Bernard Shaw on Film (DVD): Major Barbara, Caesar and Cleopatra, Androcles and the Lion.

    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).

    Looks like a good week for some older Blu-ray titles on sale. "(500) Days of Summer" at Target for $12.99 is a deal I can't refuse. Probably a good time to pick up "Star Trek" as well.

    I'm REALLY surprised at the release of FlashForward at this point. Does anyone know if there are any substantial features with it?

    Otherwise, just Jersey Shore for me. (Not!)

    Hey Mike: two of your images aren't coming up right, at least for me. Figured someone needed to give you a heads up. :D

    I'll prolly grab Justice League for $20. I'm a sucker for cartoon superheroes, so what the hell. (500) Days of Summer is also a no brainer for me at Target. Looking online, the BB TV Sale is pretty disappointing to me. I just don't see the point in having one or two seasons of a show on sale but not the entire run, especially if a later season is on sale and not the first.

    I picked up the Blu-rays of Jennifer's Body and 500 Days Of Summer (now I'm glad I didn't get it at Best Buy for $20 a few weeks ago) at Target this morning. That's about it for me this week.

    Thanks for the prices, guys!

    Adam-12 Season 4 for me.

    Don't exactly know what is up with the whole FlashForward deal.

    According to TVShowsonDVD www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/FlashForward-Season-1/13349 this one comes with a flyer for a downloadable coupon for $15 off the DVD or $20 off the Blu of the complete first season coming in August.

    Why would I spend $20 on 10 episodes now just to buy the whole season in August and on Blu?

    Interesting....

    I'm not sure. Its 4x3. Heads up that there is some swearing. If I remember correctly even an F bomb or two.

    Best Buy doesn't seem to advertise many dvds anymore (of course they have the tv one this week, but not much for movies) and Target, advertised a couple $5 movies and only 2 new releases and that was it. Not a way to sell movies...

    Ooh! Because I want to see this show, and I've been wondering when the heck it would become available. To see some of it now, effectively for free (as long as I use the provided coupon when the full season comes out), would be nice.

    Anyone knows if Warner finally re-mastered "Frantic" in WS for this week's Blu-ray release?

    I still own the first release of this great flick on Full Frame/P&S, and the 2004 version was also P&S.

    I agree. Its a good way to get caught up before the rest of the season starts so you can hit the ground running. Its a great show and good to know that is is coming to BD. Neil is working on a review of this release.

    for those interested in this title, I checked around and verified that "Frantic" will be released in WS for the first time ever since the LD days..
