[rant]I will take the Ring...though I do not know the way.[/rant] [c][/c] Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, the week of the release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website...but it COULD still be in-stores! I only include the titles I feel like including. In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing every DVD. I have a lovely wife and a four-year-old son I'd rather spend time with. Please don't complain. If there is a title not included in the Roundup that you want to see, just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone...like I do! Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Holy Crud! What a week!

THANKS TO SCOTT_J FOR THE INFORMATION. NO OAR = NO SALE![/RANT] * [rant]A REMINDER HERE THAT LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RINGS will be available in both Widescreen and Fullscreen versions. I encourage everyone to watch the movie in your homes the same way you saw it in theaters: In Widescreen. Whichever version you prefer, be sure to check the banner across the top of the box front to ensure you get the correct version. Which of course is Widescreen. [/rant] * Another reminder here: The catalog titles, especially those from Warner Brothers, are unlikely to be fast-shipped into stores except for any that might be promoted in an ad (i.e., Clash of the Titans at Best Buy). I recommend that you plan accordingly, and spread your purchases out...since there's so darn much hitting this week! * I mainly included Borders this week due to the profusion of catalog title releases. It's too bad there's no current printable coupon online for them, or it would make many of their deals superior. If anyone knows of a current online Borders coupon, good for 15% off DVDs, please let us all know! :wink: EDIT: There IS a printable coupon I've located on-line. It's only for 10% off, but that's nifty enough to get better prices on some of the WB catalog titles! Click here for the coupon! Share it with your friends! * Both Best Buy and Circuit City are offering to save you $10 when you buy on the same transaction both Season 1 and Season 2 of The Simpsons. * Been in the market for an X-Box game console? Now's your chance: Pick up the X-Box and a DVD Playback Kit at Best Buy this week, and they will throw in a free copy of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring! * Best Buy will also let you save $10 instantly when you buy The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring on DVD and, at the same time, pre-order your Playstation 2 copy of the game LotR: The Two Towers. But you'll have to wait until its November release date to play that game! * A final Best Buy note, though most of you won't care: Their circular mentions the DVD title Roxy: Learn To Surf, Now!. Most of you guys will check it out on the shelves just for the bikini-clad blonde on the cover who is surfing (Roxy, I presume). Anyway, the circular mentions that there is a bonus Roxy t-shirt offer included inside the DVD. Since the disc is $14.99, it might be worth it for the shirt! :wink: * CompUSA has inexplicably taken the week off! With the deals they set for Harry Potter and a few others, we expected them to come forth with a mind-blowing deal on LotR: FotR. Instead, according to their website, they have no advertised specials this week. Just some "unadvertised specials" on PC equipment, which they encourage you to print from your PC's printer and bring into the store. CompUSA's website shows LotR: FotR selling for $22.97, hardly a great deal. Perhaps they will kick in with a separate ad that isn't a flyer? Who knows. I won't be scanning the papers myself, but if anyone hears anything then please chime in! * Target: Their website hasn't updated yet. But, my special thanks to Christopher D of VA., who has already posted here with the Target circular information. I'll copy it into this post for easy reference: * K-Mart has Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring for $18.99. The ad shows a widescreen version of the disc. Plus they will give you a $4 K-Mart Gift Card if you also purchase one of these titles on the same transaction: Austin Powers, Austin Powers 2, Dungeons & Dragons, Final Destination, The Long Kiss Goodnight. A good deal, netting you LotR for just $14.99 if you need one of those other titles (I don't). In addtion to all of that, K-Mart shows Super Troopers for $19.95, and Bob The Builder: Celebrate With Bob for $12.95. * Wal-Mart's new circular only shows that Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring will be availble at their "Everyday Low Price". They do not state how much that will be. They do refer to it's online availability, where it is $22.99...but Wal-Mart's online prices rarely reflect in-store reality. I expect the store price to be named only on Tuesday, after they see what everyone else is doing. * If you're in a mall, check FYE for The Simpson's: Season 2 to save a buck. Looks like they will have it for $33.88! * Finally, in a (very) rare Fry's mention this week, it looks like they have the best deal going on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan - Director's Edition. $16.99, limit 1.
