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).

Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike!


Will add Angel Heart and Garp to the collection at some point.


I reviewed The Doors when it was first released on Blu-ray in 2008. I wonder if Lionsgate has done anything more than put it in a new case and add a digital copy?

I'll pick up The Walking Dead: S5 at some point.


Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

Angel Heart is I believe a reissue with a digital copy added.
Yeah, Terminator 2 had a very quiet re-release/new transfer recently but I think Lion's Gate generally puts the same disc out again with a digital copy.

Mike,


That Ultimate Edition of The Walking Dead apparently isn't coming out until 12-01-15. There is a season 1-4 boxset coming out this Tuesday.

Thanks, Mike, for the ongoing listings - this week, the data on Elementary, especially. Target's price is a pleasant surprise.

So Rambo 2 and 3, but not FIrst Blood? That's weird.


Also - The Last Dragon? AWESOME! I can see The Glow!


And I've never seen it, but I'd love to get my hands on The Last American Virgin to round out my Cannon Films collection.

I haven't bought a disc in months, but I will consider upgrading The Last Dragon when the price gets to be about half of what it is now.


The Last American Virgin is a pretty odd flick. It's actually based on an Israeli movie that took place in the 1950s (and had several sequels). Worth watching, though.
