(CC) after a title = New release in the Criterion Collection.

Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

Carmen Miranda Collection: The Gang’s All Here, If I’m Lucky, Something for the Boys, Greenwich Village, Doll Face.

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.

First time I've been up late enough to see the roundup on "Saturday" night in a long time. :D

Men in Black on BD and Sword in the Stone. And maybe one more order from DD before the 22nd. And I might have to see if there's anything of value in the BD sales...

Thanks for the roundup. Just Sword In The Stone for me. Can't believe that it isn't priced below $19.99. Probably get it at Wal Mart (maybe my brother can get it with his 10% employee discount. $2 off is better than nothing).

All right, Jason. I can see you are still connected to the HTF. This is the last time I'm going to tell you...


I'm going to count to three.

Thanks as always guys. Nadda for me. But i spent to much on Deep Discount anyway. I blew my entire month budget, and then some.

I was thumbing thru the Best Buy circular this morning and thought that Popeye Vol. 1 may have bee too good to be true! It was never high on my priority list, but at that price...

Anyway I'll pick up Jericho season 2 and maybe The Sword In The Stone, which is the first movie I ever saw in the theater!

Thanks guys!

As always, much thanks for the information. I looked at the BB BD sale list online, and there is some really nice stuff on there for folks who may have just started to purchase BDs. The 5-disc set of Blade Runner for (technically) $15?? DAMMMNNNN! :)

Oh, certainly Popeye 2; probably "The Gang's All Here" remaster (muttering: "now, what to do with the copy on my shelf...").

Thanks as always for the good work, gents!

Just Popeye Volume Two for me.

I already have it but I think you could argue (and it may come to that) Volume One as being $10 since that's what is definitely what is shown in the ad. Maybe it's only the Popeye V1 in the tin that's $10 and BB is just trying to clear their exclusive tins from their shelves?

And since I missed it in theaters, I'll be renting Be Kind Rewind.

I stopped by Best Buy today and asked about 'Popeye - Volume 1'. The individual said it was the Fleischman collection, but I checked their web site to double check.

Best Buy's website only has "Popeye & Friends: Volume 1" (to be released on Tuesday, June 17th) for $9.99, which is noted at the top of "The Weekly Roundup".

Unfortunately for those who don't have "Popeye the Sailor, Vol. 1: 1933-1938 [4 Discs]", it still has a price of $54.99 at Best Buy, though you can get it at Deep Discount for $45.99.

So is the Popeye vol. 2 at Best Buy in a tin again? The ad kind of looks like it, with the rounded edges but I haven't heard anything definitive. It'd be nice if the whole set (I think 3 vols?) came in tins so they match.

Thanks for the Roundup! Definitely picking up Sword in the Stone and Popeye vol 2. Plus I may even grab Jericho: Complete Series but I'm thinking of waiting to see it goes 1/2 off later this year.


Jun 22, 2001
I have Jericho: The Second Season from Amazon.com on the way, and in addition to the fact that there's no music replacement this time around; I bought it to support this series (in the hope of another kind of revival down the road).

I'm planning on getting Burn Notice: Season One on Thursday.

Thanks, Mike and Patrick.

The Target Bonus disc contains the next, 4th episode, in the series. "Home Is Where the Spark Is". Nice bonus to help hold us over until the remainder of the episodes get released this August. Also nice is that it's a 2 disc case and not just an insert. This is only available at Target and it's the best price $12.99

I was going to buy Popeye the Sailor, Vol. 2 today but Wal-Mart didn't carry it, they did Have Popeye and Friends but I'm not interested in that title. So, I'm just going to order it from Amazon at a later date. I'm also interested in Sword in the Stone but will wait on that one too.
