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).

I just cancelled Enterprise S2. Not doing this for either $69 or $79 (that's ridic). If the other sets are any indication, it'll be down to $59 in a few months. I can wait that long.

Also have Return to Neverand on preorder...don't know if that's going to stick either at this point. My only hesitation in cancelling is that Disney rarely gets big price reductions, even years after the initial release.

Thanks Mike!

Light week this week -- just Amour, from Amazon. But what a film it is.
Thanks.

Nothing for me too this week. The Charlie Sheen and LiLo pic is not showing up on Chrome/FF/IE for me.

I can't see the Sheen and Lohan picture either, but I'm not complaining. :)

I'm slated to review Epic, Return to Neverland, and a couple of TV DVD box sets, and none of them has arrived. Those reviews should be dribbling out during the week.

Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

Sheen/Lohan pic doesn't display for me, and the Pit and the Pendulum Amazon link takes me to some other movie.
Mike's work is never done here! :)

I'll probably spring for The Awful Dr. Orlof at some point.

I had the exact same thought! If one picture had to not show up, let's all be thankful that it was that one. :)Nothing for me this week.

For better...or worse...I have worked the necessary magic on the Sheen/Lohan image.

If it offends your sensibilities, please, please, avert your eyes! :laugh:

I can see Sheen/Lohan. Now can you help me unsee it??? :D

Just Boardwalk Empire S3 for me this week (BTW, Amazon has now matched BB's price). Thanks as always for the RoundUp, Mike!

Just a heads up Mike, the price for "Pit and the Pendulum" links to the Amazon page for "Shadow Dancer". (Edit: Charles already mentioned that one.)

"X-Ray / Schizoid" pre-ordered since June... eagerly awaiting Monday/Tuesday's mail.

All right...already! Get off my back!

The link is fixed! :laugh:

I'm still getting used to some of the vagaries of my new "system" for compiling the RoundUp.

Will get Epic 3D when it's not ridiculous. Thanks!
Derp, apparently I preordered it months ago. Should be here tomorrow, just got a shipping notice.

I only got it because one of my renters had told me of a personal project he had in mind to do knights on jungle birds (he's a terrific illustrator). The next month we saw the trailer for Epic and it kinda ticked us off =)

Good grief, I've been looking for Boardwalk Empire season 3 on the shelf at the library for months! Oops!
