    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.

    I'm glad that you and Patrick list alot of the catalog stuff on here because I can't pass up Arrested Development Season 1 for $12.99!!!!! But STILL no new releases that inspire me...

    (And wouldn't it have been ironic if that Shark Week bonus disc had been included with copies sold at Circuit City?)

    Best Buy has an online-only offer on "noir" titles including the new BULLET FOR JOEY, KANSAS CITY CONFIDENTIAL and WOMAN IN THE WINDOW. Buy two, save $10 which will bring them down to $9.99 each. I put "noir" in quotation marks because it also includes BALL OF FIRE (?) and THE ADVENTURES OF MARCO POLO (???).

    Thanks, Mike and Patrick. Better week for releases than the last couple, but still not much for me.

    For new releases, just Home Run Derby Vol. 1 for me this week. I'm seriously considering South Park the Hits at CC for $12.99. I have all the season sets, but that is the only way to get the original Spirit of Christmas short on DVD. Is that worth $13? That's the question.

    Am I the only one that is, apparently, missing something in this reference? I fail to see the irony. Help, please?
