(CC) after a title = New release in the Criterion Collection.

Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

Essential Art House – Volume 1 (CC): Beauty and the Beast, Grand Illusion, Knife in the Water, Lord of the Flies, Rashomon, Wild Strawberries.

Fox Horror Classics: Volume 2: Chandu the Magician, Dr. Renault’s Secret, Dragonwyck.

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.

"LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite 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, 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, 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, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

Mike, I'm seeing the Kill Bill 1 and 2 at Amazon as being 39.99, not 30.99.

Thanks as always, Mike!

I notice that you have Amazon's Kill Bill Blu-ray double-pack listed as $30.99. I think you mean $39.99.

Mike, Thanks for the roundup as always, but I think you still have a typo, you have Kill Bill V2 for 30.99 at Amazon.

Anyway, just Child's Play (would be nice to have on BD, but you can't go wrong for the ten bucks at Best Buy) and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" Season 3 (Which BTW, if you're looking for a hilarious blind buy, pick up the first release)

Won't buy any more Kill Bill releases until "The Whole Bloody Affair" comes out. Same goes for Grindhouse.

Thanks, Will. Fixed.

However, that one was NOT a typo. It was posted at $30.95 for Vol. 2 just a couple days ago. I double-checked it...seeing as how Vol. 1 was $23.95. Guess they changed it.

I wonder if Fred Meyer will have one of their specials for Cool Hand Luke and include a coupon for a dozen eggs with a purchase of CHL.

Wow, is Best Buy's price for Essential Art House – Vol. 1 (CC) really $59.95? It's really tempting at that price point.

Despite already owning three copies (two DVD, one HD DVD) of The Big Lebowski, I'm still contemplating picking up the new 10th Anniversay Edition as well.

I've got Smallville S7 (BD) coming from the Warner store. Should be here tomorrow, actually. Otherwise, I'm taking the week off. My Visa card sighs in relief.

EDIT: Alright, I lied. Totally forgot Jerry Maguire and Rudy were coming, too, this week. Prolly pick them up after payday on Thursday...

I WAS going to post that you missed listing The Best Of Barney, but SD_Brian's is a MUCH funnier post!

Thanks, this is even more helpful since Best Buy seems to be cutting back on listing DVDs in the their Sunday print ads.

DEFINITELY the title that will launch the mass acceptance of Blu-ray among consumers! :laugh:

BTW, here's what The Big Lebowski Ult. CE LE packaging looks like!
