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.

"LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite 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, 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, 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, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

Well.....I'll be picking up SNL:Season 3 for sure, but my number one pick for this week isn't on the list so I'll just add it here: Lovejoy: Season 3. An excellent british TV mystery series from the late 80s/early 90s starring Ian McShane. Ouch....currently $52.49 on Amazon.

It will be interesting to see exactly what's on the Big Trail set. This film apparently was shot twice: at academy ratio on 35 mm and "widescreen" (ratio unknown) on 70 mm. Here I always heard that The Robe was the first widescreen film.

EDIT looks like 16:9 enhanced widescreen, aspect ratio of about 2.10:1.

Thanks as usual.

A pretty heavy week after nothing last week.

SNL season 3
Mission Impossible season 3
The Tender Trap

and possibly an upgrade of Anchors Aweigh if there's a big PQ improvement.

Shinobi on BD. It's really pretty, even if it is "Romeo & Juliet... with ninjas!". Maybe Youth Without Youth; that was pretty good.

Isn't Twister still on the WB schedule for release 4 weeks after the SD/BR editions? IIRC, that is one of the last.

I might pick up the Hulk two-fer. Otherwise, this is a light week for me.

Just a reminder that SNL season 3 is available in two versions, both for the same SRP, one of which includes some bonus postcards. All indications point to this postcard version being the only one stocked by Circuit City at least...

The new extras on the Indiana Jones box look nice, but my brother is getting them while I keep my old boxset, so I just check them out from there. Anyway, no movies this week because I have been saving up my money to get a PS3 to watch some Blu-Ray titles on, which I should get it on Friday.
