    Thanks as usual Mike! I'm a bit surprised there isn't more promos around How To Train Your Dragon. I was also hoping for a $19.99 price point. I have already preordered it via Amazon as it is a great movie. I'm also curious about WW II in HD. I ordered Dollhouse S2 at Comic Con so that will hopefully be arriving soon.

    Nothing for me, this week. I didnt know Magic was coming out on Blu.

    Hard to belive Best Buy has it at a lower price then Amazon. But, even at $20, its too much. It's not THAT good!


    Thanks as usual Mike.

    Thanks Mike. I'll be getting How To Train Your Dragon @ Best Buy w/movie cash (says children but it'll pay for a matinee). Next week is going to be a Killer (Potter Ultimate Editions, Predators, Oceans & Crimson Wing). I'll need the Weekly Roundup badly then. And lots more coming up in the following weeks.

    Is Best Buy really selling the 2-pack of How To Train Your Dragon for $2 less than the single disc?


    HTTYD is my purchase this week.

    Malcolm: This may be a YMMV situation this week. The 2-pack price was in the Sunday flyer. The single disc price came from bestbuy.com.

    I'll pick up The Darjeeling Limited on Blu-ray at some point but there's nothing for me this week.

    The only way I know for me to reign in my recent movie spending is to simply not go to a store that sells movies. How to Train Your Dragon, Darjeeling Limited and Wolverine and the X-Men at some point when they're all on sale. I fully expect HTTYD to hit a lower price point before Black Friday. IIRC, Bee Movie dropped like a rock for that day a few years back.


    Thanks guys for feeding my habit every single week.

    I loved HTTYD, but the Blu will be much cheaper within a few months.

    Just preordered the "... Dragon" BD combo pack (w/ $5 eGift card offer) from B&N's site for $24.79+tax (as part of my kid's school bookfair purchase/contrib) -- couldn't use a regular coupon though since it was a preorder. Seemed like a decent enough release week deal under the circumstance -- and I don't mind paying the premium for that once in a while for the kids, especially w/ the school bookfair tie-in (for which I also ordered the Maltese Falcon BD w/ a coupon at a decent net price)...


    Already have the UK version of the Red Dragon BD, which I assume should be essentially identical to this US release. There are a couple other releases of interest this week, but I'll probably just wait for some good deals for them later -- seems like we're getting lots of good deals w/ just a little patience lately (plus I still have a sizeable backlog of titles to watch anyhow ).

    Not sure about other places, but B&N apparently offers that option now -- it's actually a combination of the online site (w/ bookfair code) on top of the partnering local B&M store:


    http://www.barnesandnoble.com/bookfairs/index.asp?


    I guess that's bound to happen w/ so many things getting online -- and doing it this way can get more of your family and friends involved too.

    I'm getting older every day...and I sure feel it (some days more than others!).

    Online book fairs. Amazing. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised. It's just something I haven't thought of.

    I loved The Darjeeling Limited when I saw it in theaters; it's a lot of fun and a nice cross between Wes Anderson's style and the Merchant Ivory texture. I'm not sure I need to own it, though, and I definitely don't need to own it at $24.99. Which is just as well, because October's shaping up to be an expensive month for books. Movies will have to wait until next month.

    So is Rudolph actually HD or an Upconvert? $20 for an Hour Special is a bit steep.
