[COLOR= rgb(255,0,0)]The Disclaimer[/COLOR]




[COLOR= rgb(0,0,0)]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[/COLOR]. 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 [COLOR= rgb(255,0,0)]RoundUp[/COLOR] 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 [COLOR= rgb(255,0,0)]RoundUp[/COLOR]. 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! FYI we are running a contest for one of this weeks releases: Beauty and the Briefcase on Blu-ray.

For me this week you can't go wrong with Uncle Buck for under $10. I've seen the trailer for Wild Target on multiple Fox BDs and it looks pretty funny, but I'll wait for Matts review before I do a blind buy.

Nothing for me this week.


Although some day I want to see Amarcord. I was 14 in 1973. The ads that ran in the newspaper--using the same logo in connection with the name as is used in the poster above--weighed heavily on this young adolescent's mind.


By the way, you guys were right about this headcold. I'm now starting week two...and it's still giving me hell. They make these things tough these days.

Wonder if Best Buy will actually stock those Classic Educational Shorts discs? The first 2 of those I had to mail-order since I never found them in any stores.

Nothing here, either. If I was swimming in money, there are things I would pick up, but since the former isn't the case, neither is the latter.


Bambi BD is currently on pre-order for $24.99, Tangled BD $19.99 on BestBuy.com. There's some deal when you buy two select Disney movies to save $10 on Bambi...but I think there's a coupon starting to float around for Bambi.

With all the great movies that aren't available on BR, I'm thrilled to see that Barb Wire is coming out. No Fiddler on the Roof? That's fine, Barb Wire will do.



Oh well, I'll probably take the dive for A River Runs Through It and Thelma and Louise.

The River Wild is a great thriller, and I'm excited to see a Blu-ray release. Just another example of how Meryl Streep can play any part and make it completely believable.

Is it worth the upgrade from SD to Blu for "Uncle Buck"? It is a guilty pleasure of mine and IIRC, the SD is AOR, unlike "Honeymoon In Vegas" where the SD was FF and the Blu is AOR.

For those interested, there is a $10 coupon available for You Again at youagain-themovie.com


It is good for the blu-ray combo pack version of the film and expires 2/13/11.

Not even much for me to rent this week! I might check out the two versions of "I Spit..." at some point, but there's no hurry.


And Mike, I ended up on Cipro-something (prescription antibiotics) to knock that out of my system. I'd try it.

Has anyone read a review for Uncle Buck on Blu-Ray? I like to read reviews before I buy Blu-Rays. Really want this on Blu-Ray. Thanks for the help.

Universal didn't send any of this weeks catalog titles out for review, so you will have to wait for Tuesday. I went ahead and preorderd it . Its one of my favs and for under $10 I'm willing to take the chance.

Mike Frezon is once again a trend setter. He removed Ultimate Electronics from the WRU and now they have announced that they are closing all 46 stores and will be liquidating them.
