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).

Mike-

This is where I usually thank you for not just doing the update, but saving me money. Not this week! You are costing me money this week with all the barely discounted great catalog titles on BD you listed . Its a good thing I have taken it easy the last few weeks. This week: Dr. Dolittle, Anastasia (yes!), Robots, The Sandlot (more yes!), Stand By Me, Random Hearts and I might even update my Galaxina HD DVD. Phew. I hope there is nothing but Ten Commandments next week or I'll be in trouble at home.

By the way, Adam...your post reminded me that there were a couple of Blu-ray titles this week that had conflicting release dates.

Among them: Against All Odds & Awakenings.

Trying to check them out, I made the determination that I think they are coming out next week.

I just received the review copy of Silent Naruse from Criterion late yesterday afternoon, so I hope to have the review up by tomorrow night.

Renting Skyline (and not expecting much). Also interested in the Keaton title...dad loves him, but I've never been a huge fan. Might check it out anyway.

Nothing stands out for me immediately. The Times of Harvey Milk will be this summer with the Criterion sale. I may stop into BB to grab Close Encounters for $14.99, but that's pretty much it. Time to start saving those pennies again!

Riddick, if reviews say the video quality of Chronicles is the same as or better than the original release. I am concerned it might not be, because it contains both the theatrical and the director's cut this time, and for all we know they may be separate files rather than using seamless branching.

This has been a rather dry spell for me and purchases. Those two Spaghetti Westerns look intriguing, and the prices are great... We shall see. Thanks as always, Mike. Your attention to detail is always appreciated.

Mike,

I sure will post back, only problem is from amazon it ships in 1-3 weeks.

I read online that each disc will be two sided with 2 movies on each. hopefully quality won't be so bad.

I already have vol. 1 (individual disc) collection which is 6 of these movies so I'll be able to compare the video if it looks different
