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!

 

The Specials

–There are no SPECIALS to be found anywhere for new releases this week at our featured retailers.

Hey RoundUppers!

This week's edition marks my 19th anniversary compiling prices for new releases for the HTF. Here's a link to the "Wayback Machine" to sneak a peak into what the HTF and the RoundUp looked like a couple decades ago. (And we still had Circuit City and Costco as part of our revue.)

Thank to you all for showing up each and every week to check out prices and engage in discussions about what's going on with the sale of the latest titles to physical media.

You're all the best!

Thank you for 19 years of dedicated service to the HTF community with what you do here in the Roundup, Mike! It is always very much appreciated.

I'm not getting anything this week, though.

From that old Roundup you linked:

**BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! The Billy Madison/Happy Gilmore Collection SEs AND Samantha: An American Girl Holiday AND Spiderman 2 SEAND the Spiderman 1 & 2 SE Two-Pack are ALL available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one.
I'm so glad you don't have to put warnings like this in anymore and that the era of pan and scanning has passed.

--Best Buy is offering an exclusive FREE bonus disc in pack with the purchase of Spider-Man 2 SE DVD. Includes: “VH-1 Goes Inside Spider-Man spotlights unforgettable moments from Spider-Man 2. Also includes insider interviews with its creators, director, producers and celebrities.” Minimum 75 per store. No rainchecks.
Emphasis in bold Is mine. This made me laugh. I don't remember the last time Best Buy got 75 of any exclusive in store. We're certainly in a different era now with regard to retailer exclusives, too.

It really is amazing to go back just a little bit and see how much the RoundUp has evolved/changed over the years...mostly because of the changes in the industry. The format of the RoundUp itself has held pretty constant.

I have actually been having questions about how relevant a RoundUp is anymore since most people just do their shopping online and don't really need anyone else to scour for the printed Sunday ads to see what retailers have an extra-special deal. It also seems like the retailer exclusives of today are a lot less significant than they were years ago. Or maybe just less significant to me! :D Participation in these weekly threads have certainly dropped big time.

I for one greatly appreciate the round-up, In addition to the new releases there is info on who has the best price on release week. I can definitely understand how time-consuming it is, but is always a highlight of my week :)!

That's entirely up to you, Mike. If you enjoy doing it, keep doing it. There's at least a small audience here who are still checking it out. From my perspective, perhaps it's more to see an easy-to-read listing of the week's new releases moreso than the actual prices.

But if you find it's a chore or takes up too much time you could be spending on other things you enjoy, I don't believe anyone here would blame you if you want to retire. It would be the end of an era, but time keeps moving and things change.

:laugh: Ain't that the ever-lovin' truth!

Yeah. My questions aren't so much about "how much of a chore" it is to compile the listing each week. I wouldn't bother you folks with that.

I've just been wondering how useful the RoundUp is to disc consumers in a world where streaming and digital codes now tend to rule the day.

Dave Lambert still does a roundup on his web site but you have to pay a subscription fee to it to see it.

My disc buying has dropped to minuscule.
I buy nearly every movie now from people who sell their codes or from sales on iTunes.

We still have hundreds of DVDs and hundreds of blue rays and not much room for any more.

My disc buying average the last 3-4 years is under 5.
Can’t see the value in buying a bulky set like the Columbia Classics for $100+ when I can get them all for about $20-$25 and not huge box.

Also sorry to say I’ve almost totally forgotten that you post this every week and I know it will never change but I still find it odd that we have to click to another part of HTF to read these “articles” but that’s my problem.

I do sometimes miss the simpler versions of websites like HTF.

I should have a review of Groundhog Day up tomorrow - the 4K disc is "new," now with Dolby Vision (although probably sourced from the same 4K master as the previous Best Buy exclusive release from 5 years ago) and the trailer. The disc is supposed to arrive today (it somehow took FedEx Ground 4 days to get from Sacramento to Reno which is typically a 3-4 hour drive).

I find that most retailers don't have printed ads anymore, so your Roundup is especially welcomed every week.

Personally, I read these threads every single week, but for me it's just to find out what is coming out this week, and 0% about the prices.

Thanks for your supreme dedication to the RoundUp, Mike. It doesn't go unnoticed or unappreciated.

I have a couple of discs on the list to review that haven't turned up yet, but I keep hoping. . . .

I appreciate your work every single week, even though I never get an alert whenever you post it.
