    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.

    Thanks, guys, but no new releases for me this week. Which is a good thing with the money I've spent at DD's 20% sale this week, not to mention the Six Feet Under set I ordered at Amazon yesterday.

    Just for a laugh, this is a customer review for the Walker, Texas Ranger S3 release at Amazon:

    Well, I might just have to "upgrade" my 24 sets to the slimline packs; my digipacks are about ready to fall apart after only 6 months.

    And we'll see if I can grab some of the X Files seasons...

    This week wasn't supposed to happen like this. [​IMG]

    Amazon's price for Deadwood is $49.99 now. I guess they're trying to compete with BB and CC.

    Mike -
    What's in the Cecil B. DeMille Classic Collection? I looked at Amazon.com and can't even get a DVD collection to come up to find out. DDD has the cover which says 16 early feature films and the blurb says "Some of Cecil B. DeMille's best silent movies are included on this collection. DeMille fans will be delighted to find his directorial debut, THE SQUAW MAN, included. The story of THE SQUAW MAN follows Englishman Captain Wynnegate (Dustin Farnum) as he travels to the U.S. as an exile, after taking the fall for his embezzler cousin. Travelling west, he marries an Indian squaw (Red Wing), but years later his cousin admits to the crime on his deathbed, and the Captain returns to England after his wife's suicide."

    Can you find out? Please sir.....

    HD DVDs of Monty Python and Sneakers for me. Does anyone know if Meaning of Life has everything from the two-disc set? Universal seems to be pretty good about including everything, but it's almost impossible to find specs on these releases.

    Excellent. I was just checking the shelf last night and saw that I had the original Image DVD release, so this upgrade's a no-brainer.
