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!

The Wizard of Oz UCE Blu-Ray from Best Buy for me, and maybe Hocus Pocus for $5.99 with Snow White poster.

Mike, I haven't heard any news of The Deer Hunter or The Elephant Man hitting BD this week, or this fall for that matter.  Nothing would make me happier (especially The Deer Hunter), but so far as I know neither have been announced.

Wow.  Color me frustrated.

Amazon must've pulled their listings for both of these titles.  They were there just a day or two ago.

Best Buy still has them up for purchase (at the prices listed above).

And there's even a member of the HTF who seems to have a copy of the new Deer Hunter on Blu.  (It's weird, but I cannot seem to figure out a way to contact that member about where he got his copy of the disc.  There seems to be no PM function attached to his user name.)

I'll go pull the pictures from the Features section but leave the prices in the grid until this all gets sorted out.

Mike, it's a German release, not a U.S. release -- part of the Studio Canal Collection.

Thanks, Michael.  Then I guess I'll remove them from the price grid.  Wonder why Amazon & Best Buy both had them listed for sale Tuesday?

SO tempted to get the UCE of Wizard...again!  Maybe if I actually hold one in my hands it will push me over the edge!

I'll pick up Away We Go, Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer and The New York Ripper Blu-rays at some point. Judging by those movies, I have rather eclectic tastes.

Thanks for the prices, guys!

Amazon randomly seems to include European releases in their listings. I've given up trying to figure out why certain ones get picked and others ignored. And the Tuesday date is a complete mystery -- maybe that's when they expected to get stock?

Thanks for the prices! The Patty Duke Show is a definite for me this week. And I may pick up Superman/Batman PE on Blu, too. I really want Wizard Of Oz, but I'm in no hurry. If the Target exclusive was even $5 less, I'd probably bite. For now, I am content to sit it out and either wait for a better price around the holidays or for the non box-of-stuff version that Warners will most likely eventually release.

Thanks for the Roundup.  I have a question.  I don't have a Best Buy (but there's one coming soon in an old Circuit City building).  I ordered Monsters Vs. Aliens 2 pack dvd with the free Bob Plush.  The price on the website is still $22.99 (not the $19.99 in the ad).   Does BB still adjust the price down when an item goes on sale when they ship it or will they charge the extra $3?    In the past when I preordered and a dvd had a lower price on release date they lowered it to the advertised price.  I cannot wait for our b&m BB to open so I won't have to order from BB.com any more.

What's this exclusivity shit with Gremlins? Will it hit other stores at some point? I kind of like Gremlins 2 better anyway, but anything that eliminates a snapcase SD-DVD from my shelf is ok with me.

Also, if anyone else liked the theatrical cut of Payback as much as I did, you might be interested to know there's a UK release scheduled for this week.

Not sure why Target is, um, targeting so many exclusives, but Gremlins isn't the first they've had (as far as entertainment media). Prince's new album was a Target exclusive. And Pearl Jam's new one is available only at small, indie stores, iTunes (not Amazon unless it's an import) and, you guessed it..Target. No other big-box retailer is carrying it.

Wonder what the angle on exclusives are (both in terms of the store and the artist)...

Thanks again for the roundup Mike!  I add links to Amazon prices this week.  If you are planning on buying any of this weeks releases there please use the links as that will help support HTF--Thanks!

As much as I'd like to pick up Oz, Superman/Batman and a few others, I decided I needed to get my windshield finally replaced.  It's been cracked badly for about four or five years now and it's going to set me back rather substantially.

I may break down over the weekend and put what I want (plus a Wii...) on one of the CC's, but I hope someone can talk me out of it...
