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).

Hey gang!


Amazon.com threw me a curve ball this week--when I was sitting on a fastball. They've changed around their search engine filters on the Movies/TV section of their site. I was unable to do a good search on the new releases for this week. And that is why there are so many prices missing from the Amazon column. I would have had type in each title to get the prices and links and I just didn't have time.


I talked to an Amazon rep about the issue...but didn't get too far. I just hope they iron things out for next week.


I can't explain the strange formatting in the grids. Just a tough week, I guess. :blush:

The new grids are posted...with all the amazon prices.


So...the only way I've got to explain it...is that I convinced the clueless Amazon rep the other day what was going on wrong with their search engine so they fixed it...or else things were just going slow with their transition to some search changes at the site.


Regardless, when I checked just now I was able to do an easier check of their new releases for this week.


Not quite perfect...but much better than what I was looking at all week long.


Thanks for the kind words everyone.

Has anyone been able to get the save $10 deal when buying both Divergent and Insurgent Steelbooks on bestbuy.com to work?

Thank you for going above and beyond the call of duty, Mike. It's much appreciated!


I'm also slated to review Far from the Madding Crowd, Night and the City, I Love Lucy: Season Two, and True Story, but none of them have gotten to me yet.

Thank you, Mike. Very much appreciated; even more so due to the difficulties in assembling this week's report.

Thanks so much for all the work you do, Mike.


I'll be getting The Casual Vacancy, and possibly How to Get Away with Murder after a price drop.

Orphan Black 3 and I Love Lucy 2 for me this week (my local Fry's broke street date on this and priced it at $89). Thanks, Mike!

Can anyone confirm the steelbook of Divergent is available as 3D? I did not know there was any 3D version of Divergent, and the Best Buy ad only shows a 2D version

You know, while the upcoming list is valuable beyond words, the links to prices I couldn't really care about. I'll usually buy through my own sources, so if Amazon proves to be too much work, consider this a vote of "Dont bother".

Dennis: I can confirm that it's NOT. My mistake. A typo. Just a Blu Divergent in the steelbook. Sorry for the confusion.


I will amend the OP.


Thanks for pointing that out. :thumbsup:

Insurgent, for sure, when it drops to $9.99 on Black Friday. Same time and price I grabbed Divergent last year.


Otherwise, the Pocahontas 2 Disc CD Legacy Collection set (streets Friday)...and that's it.


Thanks for all the work, Mike!

My review of A Little Chaos, which was not on the list this week, is now live. Of you like period costume dramas, I urge you to check it out!


I was slated to review Insurgent 3D, Innerspace, and Burying the Ex (the latter on DVD) this week, but those have not shown up, yet.
