    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

    $_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that 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 only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing 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...like Dave & I do!

    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the standard Roundup: they set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. When it comes to Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".


    **BE CAREFUL! The Whole Ten Yards is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one!!!

    --Amazon is still featuring free shipping on orders over $25. Restrictions apply.

    --Best Buy is offering a deal if you purchase BOTH The Whole Ten Yards ($17.99) and The Whole Nine Yards ($9.99). Get both DVDs 2/$20! That’s an $8 savings! (or, you could say you’re getting The Whole Nine Yards for $2!)

    --And, for those who have been demanding it…Best Buy is including a Hellboy collectible card on its packaging of the Hellyboy DVD!!!

    --I did not get a Circuit City flyer before my deadline for getting this week’s RoundUp ready. Hopefully, someone will post any special deals Circuit City might be running this week. Thanks!

    The latest markdowns according to DavisDVD:

    EFFECTIVE: July 27, 2004 (Studio/Titles/New SRP)

    None to report this week.

    I've fixed the Zombi pricing.

    It looks like I'll finally be buying Equilibrium and Blade II at Best Buy. Equilibrium never appeared to go on sale for this past year, it always hovered around $17 in pricing.

    Didn't know the Devil's Backbone was getting a special edition. I'll have to get that one. Will probably wait for the Director's version of Hellboy or pick one up pre-viewed in a few weeks.

    Patrick, the ad for Best Buy showed the one disc version of Blade 2. Anyway, I might go after the 2 for 20 deal at Best Buy, even so I would like to get the first V mini series, but only place that has it is Fye and Boarders. Thanks for the update, Mike.

    Some pretty good 2 for $20 choices at Best Buy. Gave me a chance to pick up "2001" and "Clockwork Orange" on the cheap.

    Just Ghost in the Shell SAC for me. I'm surprised no one decided to do a bundled deal with that and the original film.
