Don't forget that this disc is NOT AVAILABLE in it's ORIGINAL THEATRICAL PRESENTATION; it is the chopped-for-television version and I do not recommend it's purchase. The same goes for Columbia's Glenn Ford/Jack Lemmon film Cowboy, also released to DVD this week: it's been chopped, too. I'll personally wait - forever if necessary - for the Theater Version of these films. For this reason, neither title is included in the Roundup. * Best Buy is showing an "Instant $5 off when you buy The Others and Snow Dogs together". Again, I do not recommend buying Snow Dogs. However, the last 3 times BB made this type of combo-savings offer, the primary title got the discount at the register whether or not the secondary title was purchased. So there's a chance that this is going to happen again. If so, then you'll be able to get The Others by itself for a super-low $12.99!! I personally will try this...$17.99 is a great price for all the wonderful things I've heard about that film (The Others) anyway. If I can save an additional $5, that would be outstanding! * Best Buy has 10% instant savings on all DVD Players. Including a JVC Progressive Scan model that is just $179.99 before the discount! Whoa!! Also, they have a Sony SACD player on sale for $329.99, plus the 10% discount, plus you get (by mail) these five DVD titles at no extra cost: 6th Day, Crouching Tiger/Hidden Dragon, Random Hearts, Vertical Limit, Fools Rush In. For those of you who just want an extra player for the bedroom at very little cost, you can choose the one I picked up last Christmas...at 10% off the $99.99 price I got during the holidays: Mintek 2110 DVD Player with component connections, lighted panel, controls on full-size unit AND on remote, zoom, A/B repeat looping, and it even does Karaoke! And, to make use of the last feature, BB is giving away a free microphone with this unit. For anyone needing a cheap DVD player, I highly recommend the Mintek, especially for this deal. Hmmm...Maybe I need a spare in the computer room, so I can spin discs while I'm doing the Roundup... * In the ultimate free-goodie giveaway gimmick, BB is also giving away a free "recliner" when you buy any projection TV! It's not quite a La-Z-Boy, though, so eyeball it before you get excited. I'm not... * This isn't QUITE DVD-related, but maybe it is since the thing can spin discs if you get the add-on device: For those of you who held off getting an X-Box game machine because the darn control pads are too big for the kiddies, but aware that Microsoft is officially releasing their new smaller control pads this week. I'm not a kiddie, but I've got small hands, so this is of interest to me! * Target's weekly ad shows Corky Romano at $17.99, and advertises that you will get a "LOW PRICE" on the following titles: The Others, From Hell, Oliver & Company. * K-Mart's ad is showing $19.95 each for The Others, Oliver & Company, and Corky Romano, and $22.95 for From Hell.
