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

    MoH before a title = “Masters of Horror” series.

    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    The Happy Hooker Trilogy: The Happy Hooker, The Happy Hooker Goes to Washington, The Happy Hooker Goes Hollywood.

    Esther Williams Collection: Volume 1: Bathing Beauty, Easy to Wed, On an Island With You, Neptune’s Daughter, Dangerous When Wet.

    Raymond Bernard: The Eclipse Series 4 (CC): Wooden Crosses, Les Miserables.

    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.

    Oh boy....Red Dawn CE. That is really tempting. Maybe I should go pick up that cheap Romanian AK-47 first. Is there any better ending to my old non-anamorphic copy of Red Dawn than have it shot up by an AK down at the range?

    Hmmm, I just may finally pick up Batman at that price, but is it the new edition or the old one in the snapper?

    Yup. Meant to spotlight that release this week, too! I've been a bit distracted and busy the past few weeks.

    Wanted to point out that the remastered Blu-ray version of The Fifth Element is also coming out this week. The previous release was a complete travesty but early reports of the remastered version are very positive. If you already own the old version you can contact Sony to get it replaced too.

    IMO The only people who don't like this movie are either Commies, Liberals or Ohio State University Fans! (Red Dawn is really a Universuty of Michigan Football Movie, in Disguise!) [​IMG]
