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!

  1. Thanks for Round-UP Mike –

    Word of warning … don't give the dogs turkey at all … 😎

    Jabberwocky should be coming via B&N

    I plan to take advantage of some US Turkey Day and BF specials as well

    I plan to buy the Lang set as an early birthday present for myself … 😉

  2. Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

    I just cancelled the pre-orders on the ones I had this week. I've already spent too much, what with the sales that Kino, TT, B&N have had.
    I need to slow down a bit and watch some of these I just bought. Plus I can wait to see if the prices are better for Christmas.

  3. So with all the mention of the Black Friday Media sales is there a thread here that recaps them? I’d like to pick some things up.

    As for this week, I want to see Valerian and I want to pick up Cease Fire 3D, but I might wait a bit.

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

  4. I'm not sure if this is Black Friday related or not, but I thought I'd put it here rather than create a new thread for it.

    Amazon has dropped the prices on most of the October Gkids Gibli releases to $14.96 each. Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Naussica of the Valley of the Wind and Ponyo are all at this price right now. Only Howl's Moving Castle remains at $17.19 (after having temporarily been $23.99 earlier today, it switched back to its normal $17.19 a few hours later and hasn't gone lower.)
