[COLOR= rgb(0, 0, 0)]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[/COLOR]. 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 [COLOR= rgb(255, 0, 0)]RoundUp[/COLOR] 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 [COLOR= rgb(255, 0, 0)]RoundUp[/COLOR]. 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 Mike. A quiet week for me. The Great Dictator at the next 50% off Criterion sale for me and Gettysburg when it gets below $15 to replace my deluxe LD box set.

Nothing for me this week, but the teens are looking for Lemonade Mouth and I Am Number Four.


Still trying to decide what to do. I'm not really excited about this week's prices.

Decent deals if you want both package titles. Unfortunately for me, I wasn't crazy about Gnomeo & Juliet when I saw it in theaters. What to do.


Thanks as always for the Weekly Round-up Mike!

It's amazing what can happen when review copies arrive before street date. ;)

Picked up the Great Dictator today but it was pure luck. I had a Borders 50% off coupon and have plus membership, but my Borders never has these as a new release. They did have this for some reason. So $18 out the door.

I ended up buying Gnomeo & Juliet on BD after all. I was going to just buy Lemonade Mouth, but with Target's Combo pricing and Disney coupons it was a no-brainer to pick-up G&J as well - it only cost me an additional $6 to get it on BD (hard to pass up at that price). Here's how it broke down for me:
