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.

Monster Squad, and maybe a Justice League at BB. Thanks guys!

Oh i forgot, no love for The Secrets of Isis? That comes out Tuesday. I know i am not the only old guy who watched that as a kid on Saturday morning! BCI puts out some good stuff, and they read our forum to boot!

What the heck are those "cliffnotes" versions? For example, I thought that the Kenneth Branagh version of Henry V came out in 1989, and the classic Spencer Tracy version of Inherit the Wind came out in 1960. What's up with these? :confused:

Thanks guys!

I'll be picking up:

Tales From The Crypt: Season Six
Zodiac (it's worth buying twice and, for the completist, the theatrical cut won't be available in the special edition)

I'm pretty sure it was delayed.

Thanks for the prices! :)

I believe that Paramount is releasing it in mid-September (can't confirm it but the 18th keeps coming to mind). Can't wait to see this again. And hopefully, HD fans will get the 2008 SE offered to them as well.

Zodiac HD DVD has been announced. I think for September. I don't understand why these new releases can't be date & date in SD and HD formats.

How much sense does this make? All of the HD DVD's advertised are offered for free when you buy an HD DVD player!

Spawn looks tempting at BB, especially in the new steelbook case. Other than that, nothing for me this week.

Thanks as always, Mike and Patrick!

It's only Sunday afternoon and I'm looking to be #18!!!!


Blind buying The Host, but what's up with that pricing??? The 2disc at BB is $5 CHEAPER than the single and CC it's the SAME price!

Picking up TftC S5 (which I missed).

Renting Zodiac and Monster Squad.

P.S. Is JLU: Season 2 enhanced for ws or is it non-enhanced like JL: Season 2?
