When I get back from Cairo, GA for the holidays I'll be going to CC for the Superman Ultimate Collection & Robin Hood (in spite of its horrid price). I guess I'll also be bringing last weeks receipt for Home Alone Family Fun Edition for a $3 refund since it was $12.99 its first week & is $9.99 starting Sunday.

Noooooooo!!!

The Round-Up can be such an emotional rollercoaster at times. Posted Image

The only thing "Super" related I care about this week is the Richard Donner cut of S2, and that's on someone's list so I can't buy it anyway. So it ends up being an off week for me. Posted Image

Thanks Mike and Patrick!

This will be a "super" week for me as the Superman material I've been waiting for finally arrives.

For the record, here goes...
Superman: Ultimate Collector's Edition (14-disc)
Superman: Theatrical Serials Collection
St. Elsewhere: Season 1 (Hey, how'd that get in there??) Posted Image

Also, I bought the 2-disc, Anchor Bay Supergirl release when it first came out, and from what little I know about the new release, I guess there is no compelling reason to double-dip. Has anyone online compared the two versions yet, and is it worth it to upgrade?

Just pre-ordered the Ultimate Superman Collection. I was gonna grab Robin Hood too, but BF took more than a chunk of out my disposable income. Plus, I need some money in case of an impending move...

St. Elsewhere is a really big title for me this week. I know there are several Fox TV-on-DVD customers who are concerned about their inability to stick with their series (Hill Street Blues & NYPD Blue). It is my hope that a huge fan base turns out for St. Elsewhere and carries the day for all six seasons! St. Elsewhere is some of the best written and acted television ever to grace the small screen (IMHO). Missed Superman Returns in the theaters. I am mostly interested to see how they incorporated the elements of the first couple of movies (especially Brando and the Williams theme) into the new release and see how current fx work on the man of steel.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

How The Grinch Stole Christmas: 50th Birthday Deluxe Edition (...and plan to tell the wife this is for the little one too but it's really for me Posted Image)
DVD & Blu-ray - It's all about the movies!

I am also getting the superman boxset. the 14 discs. I must also remind everyone there is a docmentary called You will Believe.. its on the 14 disc set only and includes new interview with cast and crew about the 4 christopher reeve movies. I would also suggest watching the theatre version of superman 2 before you watch the donner cut, if you have not seen that version in a while. other then that.. Enjoy the set. Jacob

The movie is a decent reboot of the franchise IMO, but there is something that holds it back from being truly great. It definitely pays homage to the first two Reeve films (sometimes slavishly so) but it doesn't quite soar (no pun intended) the way those films did. The special effect are top-notch, btw, but there is a "been there, done that" feel to the overall story that I think brings the film down. Although Kevin Spacey is fine in the role, I thought the Lex Luthor portion in particular was a mistake and is nothing more than a watered-down rehash of what we've seen before. I think when Warner Bros. rebooted Batman they were wise to not do it using the Joker. Why they felt it necessary to include Lex Luthor in this film is a big puzzle to me.

Whoops! I just realized this is being posted in the RoundUp. Posted Image

Sorry about that.

And now... back to our regularly scheduled weekly sales chat. Posted Image

Thanks as usual. Sandwiched between two killer weeks, this is a nice break. Just Robin Hood this week.

I still dont know what I'm going to do about Superman... I definitely want Returns and Donner Cut but the collector in me wants to get the boxed set even if I'll never watch III or IV (definitely not IV). I have the original SUPERMAN release. -paul

Clerks II and the Superman Ultimate Collection for me this week. I hope WB does a quick exchange for the 2 bad discs in the collection (Superman 1 theatrical cut not having the original sound mix and Superman 3 being the wrong disc).

Uhmmm... excuse me? What? Where? Link please? In case you couldn't figure it out, I've ordered the Ultimate Collection from B&N thanks to the 25% off coupon in another thread (under $50 shipped), and am now concerned. Probably Clerks II and An Evening w/ Kevin Smith II later on.

I'll be picking up:

Clerks II
An Evening With Kevin Smith 2

Clerks II has a bonus disc at FYE. Since it's FYE, I'm sure it'll cost about $5 more than most places. Don't quote me but the bonus disc is supposed to have

There is a good discussion about it on this very site, here http://www.hometheat....d.php?t=246260

It starts off talking about the missing original 1978 soundtrack (which is listed as a feature) and then also gets into the incorrect Superman III disc.
