Splinter taught them to be ninja team: Leonardo leads, Donatello does machines... (quote from theme song of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) [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. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart prices in the standard Roundup: Wal-Mart sets prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart location. When it comes to Wal-Mart prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Milage May Vary".

I'm filling in for him again, and I hope it's not a half-assed job, because there is a lot of cool stuff arriving this week. Enjoy! * BE CAREFUL! The Haunted Mansion, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, & Win A Date With Tad Hamilton! are all available in both Widescreen and Fullscreen versions...get the correct one. * Costco.com is giving away a free pin with purchase of The Haunted Mansion. I have no idea if that offer is good in-stores as well, but if you want to check it out then click here. * I'm getting conflicting info about which of the 20th Century Masters DVDs are due to be released this week. So if any are impossible-to-find, then it could be that they weren't released after all. I thought this week would be .38 Special, ABC, Cinderella, and The Scorpians. Now The Scorpians are only on 1 retailer's list, Asia (which I thought was 6/8) is moved up to this week, and Patti LaBelle came out of nowhere to appear on several lists. I also see stuff I didn't expect with Chely Wright (don't know her) and Vanessa Williams. Uh...I'll just through it all on the Roundup list and let you guys find what you can find. Okay? * Best Buy: Master & Commander purchasers will get an exclusive bonus DVD called "Behind The Seas" (I think I read that right), a 20-minute making-of featurette. * Best Buy: Save $5 when you purchase Haunted Mansion plus any other "Disney" section DVD at the same time. * Best Buy: Save $10 when you buy both seasons of The Office on the same transaction. * Best Buy: Get both Wild Things - Unrated and Wild Things 2 on the same purchase as a 2-for$30 deal ($15 each). * I probably gave up too easily on finding titles at Best Buy's website, like Star! & 20th Century Masters: Scorpions. Sorry, but I have got a lot of stuff to do today for my family, so I can't spend all day searching for them. Perhaps someone will have better luck looking up and posting prices than I did. My apologies! The latest markdowns according to VideoTropics web site (DVD Title/Old SRP/New SRP): ------------------------- None!
