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

Individual Titles in the Collections Listed Above:

David Lean Directs Noel Coward (CC) (DVD and Blu-ray): In Which We Serve, This Happy Breed, Blithe Spirit, Brief Encounter.

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).

I stopped into Costco today. They were running basically the same deal as everyone else on Lion King 1.5 and 2. $24.99 for each and then $8 off for a total of $41.98. Picked them up.


That'll pretty much be it for me for the week.

Thanks, Mike, as always.


I am slated to review Alvin & the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked but the review copy has not arrived so look for it (hopefully) some time this week.

Mike, I can't believe it, but I'll be the first to give a big thumbs up to the new grids!


After reading Matt's review, I'm tempted by A Night To Remember to purchase (Titanic freak here!)...and the Roger Corman doc is a definite rental.

Like the thumbnails in the grid. :tu: But it appears that only the listings with thumbnails have links to Amazon. Previously, all the listings had active Amazon links. Thanks for the RoundUp!!!

The thumbnails are great, but I am not seeing the grid with the prices. All I see are the thumnails plus the titles.

Anyone know anything about the quality of this release? I have the old one and it leaves much to be desired, image-wise.

Guys/Gals:


Regarding the new layout of the pricing grid: Some new things are being tried out. About all I can say right now is that feedback is always helpful.

If you can't see the prices for the thumbnails (think "the forest for the trees"), It might be helpful to know your OS and browser info. Same goes if you can't see all the thumbnails, etc.

$8.99: Four Film Nicholas Sparks Collection (Nights in Rodanthe/Notebook/Message in Bottle/Walk to Remember)
That price isn't quite accurate. The actual price is $8.99 plus EVERY OUNCE OF TESTOSTERONE IN YOUR BODY.

I received my copy on Saturday, and did a quick compare. The picture quality has definitely improved. Also the audio volume has been turned up (on the prior release, you had to crank up your tv/system just to hear it). DVD Beaver did do a compare, and my own viewings match theirs. Because it is 70's BBC Video, it will not likely ever be super-crisp, but I felt it was worth the upgrade. David

Hi Mike, At this point all I can see are the thumbnails & titles with the exception of just a couple for which I can only see the title. Don't see any pricing or store names. I'm running Windows XP Home Edition version 5.1.2600 service pack 3 build 2600 with browser IE version 8.0.6001.18702
