    Thanks for the roundup, Mike. Gonna get Thor 3D combo at Target Tuesday (don't have a 3D setup but got enough $ for the 3D disc on ebay that the blu ray & dvd discs will be practically free). Nephew will have to pick up my Star Wars Complete Trilogy for me in Tampa Friday morning as that's my day & time for chemo. Gonna be several expensive months coming up. Glad for the Roundup help on my credit card.

    Both Star Wars and Thor are on the radar when they drop. I'm expecting a good deal on at least one during the holidays. Nothing else is really jumping out at me right now.


    Thanks Mike!

    Busy, expensive week! I have Citizen Kane (w/Ambersons), Spartacus & Star Wars on order; happy to see the prices on Star Wars and Spartacus have each dropped by $10 since I ordered. :dance: I will wait to pick up season 2 of Glee until the price hits the $25-or-less range and someday, when I'm impulse shopping, I may upgrade Trainspotting to blu, but there's no rush. Thanks for the round-up! :D

    My review of 3 Women went up too late last night for you to link it, Mike. The review can be found here.


    Thanks as always for the list. Glad to have you back!

    I'll be picking up the Halloween II and Star Wars Blu-rays this week. I'll grab Supernatural when it goes on sale. Thanks for the prices, Mike :)
    Best of luck!

    Just thought I'd mention that Archer :Season One is coming out on Blu-ray, It's an Amazon.com Exclusive available September 13th at $27.99. I'm not sure whether retailer exclusives releases are always posted,

    Thanks for the well wishes & prayers. I'll also be having a very importan catscan. The first 6 2 drug chemos shrunk the tumors a LOT & this will show if #'s 7 & are maintaining the shrinkage with the single dose. BTW its Mesothelioma which I was diagnosed with in January (although they can't figure how I got it having no knowledge of ever being exposed to asbestos). I'm doing well though & my doctor is very happy which makes me happy.:)

    Thanks Mike. All prayers are cheerfully accepted & I'm sure are a good reason things are going as good as they are.

    Thanks for the WRU Mike! Speaking of exclusives, Best Buy has some of the former Samsung Dreamworks 3D titles as exclusives starting today: How to Train Your Dragon, Monsters vs. Aliens, and Megamind. Bestbuy.com shows a "regular" price of $51.99 but has them on sale for $29.99. I ordered Megamind for in-store pick up and the price tag showed $34.99, so I'm not sure what the regular price will be. It was also a 3D Blu-ray/DVD set, so I am assuming the other two will be as well.


    In addition to Megamind 3D I'm getting all six Star Wars films. Would love to get Spartacus, Citizen Kane and a few others, but will wait for sales.


    Speaking of Star Wars, I'm looking to set up a viewing party for HTF members in the Seattle area this week. It can either be at my place, or I am working on getting access to a very nice Theo Kalomirakis designed theater with stadium seating that seats 15. If you are interested please visit this thread.





    I'll make sure I add you to the list Bill. Hope the appt goes well.

    Probably nothing immediate for me from this week's releases. Will probably pick up some of them as they inevitably drop substantially in prices, especially since my plate is pretty full now.


    Thanks for another WRU, Mike -- and welcome back(!) even though it was just one week... [/url]

    Ditto that one for me as well. Hope you're able to get well and stay well long term, Bill...


    Peace and blessings...

    What is the word on these That '70s Shows releases? Are they really uncut, with all songs? The Mill Creek page only makes mention of the cheaper price. I was really into T7S about a year ago, not currently that psyched, but I could probably get back into with an upgraded release. Hope things go very well for you, Bill.

    I think they are the same as the previous release just repacked and price reduced. It would probably be to expensive to have to re-edit them with new music and still hit that price point. Mill Creek typically just presses what they are given from the studio they licensed it from.

    Well, if that's true...I'm feeling "used." The release lists I checked lumped the 3rd Rock, Roseanne and '70s Show releases together making it sound like they were "do-overs." The issues with the initial releases of those shows, I did not follow closely.


    I hate putting re-tread stuff in the WRU (especially edited re-tread material).

    Best of luck to you, Bill! On a related note, rough week to release Spartacus. :(
