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).

Thanks for the Roundup, Mike. I'll be getting Mission: Impossible LE at BB On Tuesday & Princess Diaries at Target. Hope they have it in blu ray packaging. At Target.com it shows that PD combo is available in both dvd & blu ray packaging. If it were a Toys R Us exclusive they would be sure to just have all dvd packaging. Hopefully Target will have both (or all in blu. Nobody buys dvd anymore.:D)

I'm with you, Bill. That's a great deal. I wish I could get there early on Tuesday....but I think I'll have to wait until after work.

Maybe the MI 3 pack at some place other than BB. And then Ghost Protocol down the line when it gets cheaper. That's a huge "maybe" since I'm not really even watching the stuff I already have...

Since it was a cool movie, it's only $20 and I don't knows if the BB-exclusive one will get cheaper, I'll pick up Mission: Impossible on Tuesday. And I'll get Treme: Season Two (one of the best shows on TV) when it goes on sale. The next season doesn't start airing until the fall so I've got time.
Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

I just got the review copies for the two Criterion releases in the mail late yesterday, so the review for Late Spring will go up later today. Alambrista! and Shame will also go up at some point this week.

Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

Looking at the Target ad, it appears by the packaging that the Princess Diaries 10th Anniversary Combo pack actually includes both the original movie and it's sequel.

Normally I don't jump for current films, but I might go for Ghost Protocol, since it's not only highly recommended as a great demo disc but was a pretty damned good flick besides.

What's exclusive about Best Buy's LE? The inclusion of the extra features disc?

Same here. Hopefully I can buy the LE on the website for in-store pickup, because the local Best Buy stock so poorly any more than I'm not confident they'll be any left after I get out of work.

According to DVD Town's review, the movie disc has no extras. Only the Best Buy LE includes a second BD containing extra features.
Disc two, also a Blu-ray, contains the bonus materials, mostly in HD. First up is a series of featurettes called "Mission Accepted," which includes "Suiting Up in Prague," "Heating Up in Dubai," and "Vancouver Fisticuffs." They total about forty-eight minutes and give you behind-the-scenes looks at the special effects. Next is another series of featurettes, this one called "Impossible Missions," which includes "The Russian Prison," "Shooting in IMAX," "Art Department," "A Roll of Film," "Life Masks," "Stepping into the Storm," "The Sandstorm," "Dubai Car Crash," "Lens on the Burj," "Props," and "Composer" These total about fifty-one minutes and give you more behind-the-scenes looks at things. Then, there are eight deleted scenes totaling about fifteen minutes, with optional director commentary; and two widescreen theatrical trailers.
