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. The Specials **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Annapolis AND Blue Collar Comedy Tour: One for the Road AND Failure to Launch AND Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion are ALL available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one(s) ! Also, Ultraviolet is available in both Rated and Unrated/Extended Cut versions…get the one that’s right for you! --I listed Equinox (CC) in this week’s table…even though most e-tailers are telling me they actually had it last week. All of my “New Release” lists that I check list it for a 6-27 release. --Last week I wondered aloud why stores weren’t promoting the heck out of the first week of release of Blu-ray titles. I guess they decided to wait until this week. Anyone buying Blu-Ray titles should be careful…there are a fair amount of discrepancies between prices listed on-line and in-store. There are also wide price variances between retailers. --Best Buy this week, for example, is advertising a pretty good deal on Blu-Ray discs. BUY 3 BLU-RAY DVDS AND GET ONE FREE. There are four titles shown in the ad. House of Flying Daggers, Hitch, 50 First Dates & xXx. These are listed at $24.99 apiece. Come in store for more great titles. Must be purchased on same receipt. --Best Buy is also advertising the “First Blu-Ray Player”…the Samsung BD-P1000 for $999.99. Limited to quantities on hand. --Best Buy is also holding one of its 2/$20 promotions when you buy BOTH Failure to Launch ($15.99) AND How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days ($9.99). Must be purchased on same receipt. --Circuit City has prices listed on Blu-Ray discs as well: $24.99 - 50 First Dates, Hitch, House of Flying Daggers, Saw, The Fifth Element, The Punisher (2005), The Terminator, xXx. $27.99 – Crash, Lord of War, Underworld. --Circuit City has a 2/$20 deal on the purchase of both Blue Collar Comedy Tour: One for the Road ($14.99) AND Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again ($9.99).

In theaters 7/5/06 Have you guys seen the TV trailer for Little Man? I know people love the Wayans and all…but doesn’t the trailer make the film look just awful? I realize it’s probably just a simple matter of preference…but it sure looks bad to me. --And Target’s got an EXCLUSIVE BONUS DVD with it’s copies of Project Runway: Season 2 Quantity limited, no rainchecks.
