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.

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, 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 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, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).

A nice and early gift from you, Mike. Thanks so much.


I'm currently working on the DVD box set for NCIS: New Orleans, but that review won't go up until late Sunday or Monday (depending on what else comes in for review).

"The 100 Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared"

Great film, but it'll have to wait until those prices come down.

Elena for me.

We need more movies like this one.

If you like a film where the visuals tell the story...here you are.
I had to look into this because of your comment. I wasn't aware of it before, but it sounds fantastic. I'm just not sure I can stomach $35 for a blind buy. On the other hand..



And Mike, thanks as always for the RoundUp.

The Region B(locked) was one of the first BD I imported. It currently costs less than half what this does...if you are are multi-region.

I got the Disney shorts collection for my girlfriend. NIGHTMARE CASTLE has three features on it so I'll eventually get it but not for $30 (or the $45 for Barbara Steele's autograph).


Thanks for the prices.

I'm currently only region free for DVDs. I've been looking at modding my OPPO, but it's not as easy to find options for the 93 now.

If you are a Prime member, it is included(I'm not buying the HD version to check it) to give you an idea.

But the pristine visual, and the austerity it creates, is 90% of the story. There is a reason it is getting 80% and higher reviews...everywhere.

The first half is a bit humdrum and tedious. Once the tone changes(not calling it a plot twist) the rest is pure cinema heaven.

Is this the Infamous Goofy Home Theater short that has been talked about in the past but never appeared on a disc before.

Well....


I wasn't going to purchase anything this week. Then you had to post that pic of Goofy, and then Tony had to ask about it, and that got me to want it....

So I am getting that and I also tossed "The Jeff Foxworthy Show" in my basket since it is such a low price.



Darn you two!!!

Thanks for your work, Mike. Since I already have most of the Disney shorts on other discs where they were bonus features, I'm going to pass on that release. Nothing else for me this week either.

On vacation this week. My GF leaves for Spain(her final Army enlistment...she says) on Friday. Expensive month already.

Plan on, attempting to, binge on Orphan Black, Summer Lovers, Psycho Beach Party(above) and a few others(have 40 discs ordered and showing by Wed this month...)...

In the middle of everything else we plan on doing......

From What I've heard the Goofy short is worth it by itself.

I'll get it at Target where they have a cart wheel deal of 20% off all movies,

It's $23 there but you can PM to Amazon, use the cw and your Target redcard for another 5% off.


So about $15.xx OTD
