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).

--Target is also advertising an EXCLUSIVE with their DVD copies of Madam Secretary: Season 1.  However, the ad doesn't explain what the exclusive is.  It just advertises a DVD & HD digital copy (the same thing available on Amazon).

--Target is also adverising an EXCLUSIVE with their release of Scorpion: Season  1.  Guess what?  They don't say what that exclusive is.

Another early bird special, Mike! Good job!


I have already reviewed Scorpion: Season One. That review can be found here.


I'm on episode 17 (of 23) for Castle, so that review should be up late tonight or tomorrow..


I was informed by Disney that I'd be getting Star Wars Rebels: Season One, but it hasn't arrived yet.


Definitely will be buying Mad Max: Fury Road 3D though I have no time to watch it at the moment!

I'm going to wait until Christmas time to see if some Black Friday sale has it at a reduced price point.

Thanks very much for your work, Mike, but nothing for me this week. I'd like to see the Glenn Campbell film, but have no interest in blind-buying it. Nashville season 3 is a possibility after a significant price drop, but I'm not paying that much for it by any means.

I can give a big thumbs up to I'll Be Me.


It is great for both long time Glen Campbell fans and for people who are dealing--in any way--with Alzheimer's disease.


Very much worthwhile. In fact, I wish it was being released in Blu.


It is the only thing I have pre-ordered for this week. I'll be picking up the 2-D Mad Max sometime down the road.

Thanks for the list. Can't just pull the trigger on the 3D Mad Max yet. Hopefully it drops around the holidays.

Not a thing this week. That's most likely good since we're paying for a weekend Vegas trip and saving for both Disneyland in October and New Orleans at Christmas.


Thanks Mike!!

That still image from Gemma Bovary is just perfect for a 'Caption this Picture' contest! :lol:

Hmmm.


The page on Amazon for Glenn Campbell, as linked in the grid, now says, "Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."

Since you are a Prime member, I suspect yours should have entered the shipping process, or been shipped, at this point in order to get it by Tuesday.


Have you received any sort of notification that your order is NOT going through?

Shoot.


I THOUGHT it was. I got one of those e-mails that Item XYZ...and one more item have been shipped. I assumed the Campbell disc was the "one more item." But it's not.


My pre-order...made all the way back on June 8th...remains open. The price has dropped to $17.99...but says"we need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate." :(

Anybody know if any retailers are offering digital copies with the Mad Max Anthology release? It's a must buy since I never picked up any of the earlier Mad Max Trilogy releases, but the only bummer is no digital copy.

I wanted to pick up the Mad Max anthology collection, but I really want Fury Road in 3D so I guess I'll pick it up instead.

I am also getting Army of Frankensteins. It's a truly independent film that was done on a five-figure budget in Oklahoma. The director is a great guy who works at an advertising agency. It was an incredibly small team who did all of the effects work. It did well on the film festival circuit and It's really cool to see that it is getting released around the world on Blu-ray and DVD. It's not typically my type of movie, but it is campy, gory, time-travel fun if you're into that kind of thing. And yes, they address the fact that it's supposed to be Frankenstein's monster.


Here is a random review if you want to know more about it: http://horrornews.net/101355/film-review-army-of-frankensteins-2013/


Thanks, as always, for the RoundUp, Mike!
