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

    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    Alfred Hitchcock Box Set: The Ring, The Manxman, Murder!, The Skin Game, Rich and Strange.

    Flicka Family Classics Collection: My Friend Flicka, Thunderhead: Son of Flicka, The Green Grass of Wyoming.

    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.

    "LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

    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, 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, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    Just as an FYI, Goldeneye was the most criticized of all the recent Bond UEs.

    Feel a bit of a fool for buying Titanic SE for ~$25 when it came out, kinda shocked by how fast and low this one dropped.

    I'll be getting Flags of our Fathers and Flicka this week.

    Mike, the retailer isn't identified on this Special. I'm guessing that it's at Circuit City because it's sandwiched between 2 other CC specials. Just confirmed that it is Circuit City - it's listed in Patrick's post under the CC sale items.

    I'll be picking up Delirious and renting Flags Of Our Fathers and Hollywoodland.

    I'm pretty sure that that Masters Of Horror disc has been pushed back. It isn't listed at all on Anchor Bay's website (but they do have the MOH discs coming next week and next month listed).

    Thanks for the prices! [​IMG]

    At some point, I will add Hollywoodland to my library, but NOT this week!

    Universal's $29.99 MSRP for a single SD disc is totally absurd. Especially, in 2007. Too bad. I really enjoyed Hollywoodland when I saw it theatrically, but I will sit this one out until I can pick it up for a more reasonable $10 - $15.

    Yes they are Chris, but the draw back is ONLY the 1st disc is being released. The extras disc isn't included with the individual releases.

    Exactly. It is completely and totally absurd. I am skipping Hollywoodland and Catch a Fire from last week for that reason. I'm sure they'll both be in the $10 range by the summer. If not, DDD's 20% sale should help a bit in the summer. And, again if not, I've got plenty of other movies to keep me occupied. I won't support a blatant money grab.

    Since almost every new release has a $30 MSRP, I fail to see how it's a 'money grab'. It's a small new release and those generally cost about $20 and have been that price for couple of years now.

    Mark-P: Those $12.99 discs can be found at Best Buy.

    And Jeff: as you discovered, the two-fer deal on the Bpnd discs can be found at Circuit City.

    [​IMG] Oh dem golden fingers...

    I'm glad to see you guys read this darn thing so carefully! [​IMG]

    I figure you must be getting me back, Henry, for that little Woot crack I made in Mark Hasting's "Fun with Titles" thread! [​IMG]
