    Confused? You won't be after this episode of "Soap"! (quote from Soap)

    [c][​IMG][/c]

    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of 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 or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

    $_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that I could not locate a definate price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

    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 five-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.

    * Sorry to be so extraordinarily late getting this up today...I've had a foot injury all day.

    * BE CAREFUL! Anger Management is available in both Widescreen and Fullscreen versions...get the correct one.

    * Best Buy: Purchase both Anger Management and EITHER As Good As it Gets OR A Few Good Men at the same time and pay only $20 for both DVDs.

    * Sam's Club isn't listing any of the titles released this week at their website, so I left that column off.

    Does anyone know what the difference is between the Monty Python and the Holy Grail Special Edition and the "new" Monty Python and the Holy Grail 2-Disc Collector's Edition? From Amazon's description it only looks like the packaging is different.

    Pretty dull week for DVD releases in my opinion. I'll probably rent Confidence though.

    Thanks, Dave.

    I'm curious about "The Holy Grail" as well. Is it remastered (I'll pick it up if it is)or the same disc with the subtitle problems and missing opening swedish title card (I believe).

    I'll be picking up Anger Management, Confidence, and Soap.
    Also if I can find them: Brother From Another Planet and The Hospital.

    Still have not seen any of the Don Knotts films or Once Were Warriors (great film BTW) anywhere at all.

    Thanks again David your efforts are invaluable!!!

    From all indications, Holy Grail is only the same 2-Disc Special Edition packaged up with a script, cell, and a nice box.

    Unfortunately, all signs point to Monty Python as a simple repackaging with no new transfer, and without even so much as fixing the missing title card. [​IMG] It was the only thing I was interested in this week, so nothing for me.

    It's kind of nice to have a dull week after the last two release-packed Tuesdays. Only "All Creatures Great & Small" S3 for me.

    Thanks, Dave. Hope your foot gets better soon.
