I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp[/COLOR]. 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 [COLOR= rgb(255, 0, 0)]RoundUp[/COLOR] that you want to see, PLEASE 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 [COLOR= rgb(255, 0, 0)]RoundUp[/COLOR]. 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, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).

There's some movie about a fish and a boat I keep hearing about coming out this week...sounds interesting...

Jaws for sure. Currently have it preordered, but Amazon is gonna charge me shipping, so it may not be worth it.

Otherwise, I'm becoming more of a fan of The Hunger Games after reading the book, though I can definitely wait until the price drops a bit.

Thanks Mike!

Thanks Mike. Hmm Best Buy beating Amazon on the Hunger Games? That price is gonna change this week. Jaws and Hunger Games this week. Its great to see some classic 80s action like Death Wish 2-4, but what about the first one?

Jaws (BB digibook edition) & Hunger Games here as well. Also will probably pick up The Royal Tenenbaums Blu at BB since it's 50% off (no need to wait for B&N's November sale).

Thanks for the Roundup, Mike!

Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

Working on The Royal Tenenbaums review for later today. I had computer trouble I had to deal with last night which prevented me from finishing the bonus features on the Criterion set.

Don't forget, everyone, that The Hunger Games isn't released until Saturday, August 18. It has happened to me. I walk into a store expecting to find a big title on Tuesday...only to wonder where it is. Then I remember it's one of those rare end-of-the-week releases!

The Hunger Games for me this week (blind buy). Jaws eventually.

I am fascinated by Bigfoot. If the creature ends up eating both Barry Williams and Danny Bonaduce, we might have a winner...

Jaws (now) and Les Vampires (someday) for me. This is quite the Jaws household, so we'll probably end up with both the regular package and the BB digibook.

Thanks for the head's up! You did a good noting it in the price tables in the first post, but my eyes just scan for titles and prices so I totally missed it until I got to your reminder. The Saturday release works out better for me, because lately I can never seem to make it to the stores on Tuesdays until after all of the retailer exclusives are sold out.
For those curious, as I was, here's a little more info on what's exclusive to each retailer:
Target:
  • Tribute Video Diaries — the seven main tributes use their flip-cameras to document the build up to the release of The Hunger Games
  • Stories from the Tributes – sit down with the tributes and hear the best stores of their time filming the most anticipated movie of 2012,
  • Tribute Biographies – find out all about your favorite tributes with this animated gallery and
  • Tribute Photo Gallery – personal photos of the tributes.
Best Buy:
  • The four-disc edition appears to include two copies of the Blu-Ray and two copies of the DVD, not four discs of distinct content. Someone please correct me if they find out otherwise.
  • And the keepsake item Mike mentioned.
Walmart:
  • Exclusive special features made available through Walmart's VUDU streaming service: "The Stunts of the Hunger Games" and "Capitol Couture: The Styles of Panem"
  • Mockingjay pendant (presumably not the same quality as Target's 14k Gold Mockingjay pin for $999(!?!))
The Hunger Games for me this week (blind buy). Jaws eventually.
Same for me, although I was pleasantly surprised by The Hunger Games in theaters. I'm holding off on Jaws mainly because I know it will continue to be a loss leader for the stores for months to come.

Kevin has posted his review of Jaws.

And there's now also a link in the OP. Thanks, Adam!

Hint: It is coming "Very Highly Recommended!"

Though all summer long I've been thinking to myself, "Do I really need to ever buy another copy of Jaws?" seeing all the glowing reviews and realizing that I'm powerless to resist, I'll bite.
Hoping Amazon will price match Target on Glee S3 and Best Buy on Dexter S6, otherwise I'll have to support my local economy by going to two different stores. The horror!
Will also pick up Les Vampires (though maybe not this week).
Oh, and season 3 of Community and The Hunger Games are on the list also. Busy week!

From the Best Buy website:
Exclusive Collector's Edition
This deluxe version of the movie includes:
• Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy of the movie
• Blu-ray and DVD of special features
• Numbered acrylic keepsake
• Collectible case
So it looks like 1 copy of the Blu-Ray movie, 1 copy of the Blu-Ray special features, and matching copies on standard DVD.

My internet went down last night, so I couldn't pop in to say that I did get the review of The Royal Tenenbaums up in the late afternoon. It can be found here.
