Now I go two, three minutes where booze never crosses my mind. [c][/c] Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores! $_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that I could not locate a definate 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 only include the titles I feel like including. In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing every DVD. I have a lovely wife and a five-year-old son I'd rather spend time with. 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...like I do! Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

Additionally, 8-Mile has another pair of versions (each available in Wide or Full): Censored Bonus Materials and Uncensored Bonus Materials. I have chosen to include the version that is Widescreen Uncensored Bonus Materials in the Roundup. The price on each *should* not be different, but I already have an example where it is: Amazon is charging $2.75 more for the Censored than for the Uncensored version. I guess it costs money to pay for the editor! * Non-OAR discs are, as usual, entirely left off the Roundup. Example: The Kingston High, Pokemon 4Ever. * Best Buy has the following Fox titles on special as 3-for-$30: History of the World Part 1, Young Frankenstein, Raising Arizona, Office Space, The Last of the Mohicans, Behind Enemy Lines, An Affair to Remember (Fox Studio Classics), Say Anything, Men of Honor, The Sound of Music. The last two have the 4x3 versions pictured, and it is unknown if they will honor this deal on the widescreen versions as well (there is reason to doubt it). As with last week's $2-for-$25 deal, you can buy these individually through BestBuy.com and have them either delivered to your home, or mark them for in-store pickup (if available). But if you're planning on visiting the store instead, and reading this on Sunday 3/16, I would try to head over there right away to catch these before they sell out! The fine print: "Limit: 3 per title per customer. Maximum: 30 per customer." * Best Buy will also let you save $5 instantly by purchasing 8 Mile and any DVD from the "Music" shelf category. * In case you're not a member of Costco, then you need to know that CompUSA has NYPD Blue: Season 1 for just $39.99, as well as 8 Mile for a "Hot Price". * Expect most Wal-Mart stores to have Charlotte's Web 2: Wilbur's Great Adventure for either $14.88 or more likely for $14.24...prices vary by location. Either way, it should be the best price on this new item for the kiddies. Also, if you don't have the original film, look for a two-pack with both in it. Be careful, though, as I don't know if the two-packs have the widescreen or the fullscreen version of the original film (both were released months apart). The new sequel is direct-to-video, so fullscreen is proper. * Been wondering where the Borders coupons went? Well, apparently they are now SOMETIMES generating coupons on the bottoms of receipts. In some stores, buying a book for $10 or more generates a coupon good for 20% off of anything, including DVDs. In other stores, the coupons are 10% or 15% off, and the price plateaus and items are different. Some stores have no coupons being generated at all. It may be random, or it may be regional. But if you have something you want to get anyway and can get it at least tied for the best price at Borders, get it there and see if you will get a coupon. Also be aware that there are sales coming up for "Student" and then after that for "Senior Citizens", so if you qualify for either segment it may be a good time to see if you get coupons. Good luck.

Just "The Police: Every Breath You Take" and perhaps "NYPD Blue" for me! I'll see if the missus wants "An Affair To Remember" at that price; I might not mind either (fan of "Sleepless in Seattle" that I am). Ah, well...things will pick up next week with titles like Maid In Manhattan, Jackass - The Movie ( ), Futurama, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, C.S.I. Season 1, Straw Dogs (Criterion), Harold & the Purple Crayon, and - best of all - Lord of the G-Strings: The Femaleship of the String!
