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!

Merry Christmas, RoundUppers!
And Happy New Year!

This is, historically, that time of year when the worst movies of the current year are released. Enjoy! :D

It is also that time of year when I give myself a week off since pickins' are slim and things are quiet.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and all the best in 2019!

Thank you, Mike, and happy holidays to everyone!

Nothing for me on Christmas. I'll get Bad Times at the El Royale in January, as it was one of my favorite films in 2018.

Can't imagine why the pickin's are so slim...:unsure: :D

Merry Christmas, Mike! And thank you for another great year of release dates and prices.

I enjoyed Bad Times at the Royale a lot in theaters, but I can't see me rewatching it very much, so it doesn't quite merit a purchase.

White Boy Rick, and Night School aren't bad and I've heard good things about Bad Times at the El Royale. Even though I'm not buying any of them it could have been worse.
