Mike,

Long time lurker, first time poster. Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your hard work every week. After the huge blu week on the 19th (moulin rouge, Romeo and Juliet, apocalypse now, rocky horror...) I think I may have to put the BTTF trilogy on the Christmas wish list. Just saw the re-release in the theater this afternoon, it was fantastic, and looked great as well, in case anyone was curious. Thanks again, and i hope to become a more visible presence here at HTF!

Hey, Tim!


So glad you signed up and made Post #1 in a WRU!  Posted Image


Thanks so much for the kind words.  I've already got a pretty long Christmas list myself already!

Welcome aboard, Tim! Huge week for me, I'll be getting the Alien set, the Back To The Future set and Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season Two Blu-rays. If I feel like going all the way into bankruptcy, I might also get Maniac on Blu-ray. I also get the feeling that I'll be buying Sex And The City 2 as a Christmas gift at some point but that can wait for now. Thanks for the prices, guys!

Thanks as always for the RoundUp Mike and Patrick...and welcome aboard Tim! I'm definitely interested in the BD Back To The Future trilogy and Alien Anthology set, but not at these prices. I can wait for the inevitable price drops...

Just like everyone else, I have both Alien and Back to the Future on my radar for this week.  I feel like I'm committing some kind of sin by admitting I've only seen the first BttF once and never seen the two sequels.  Chances are I'll pick that set up this week and leave Alien for the price drop (or Christmas gift cards).  The original Nightmare on Elm Street is also on sale at BB.com, so I may add that on Tuesday.  The other catalogue titles I've added to my calendar are usually on sale, so I'm not in a rush to grab them (Untouchables, Varsity Blues, Taken, Traitor, Sunshine Cleaning, Silence of the Lambs, etc.).

Probably nothing from the new release slate for me (on release week) as usual, but thanks much anyhow, Mike.  I like to be informed regardless of whether I actually buy anything. But like many others, I do plan to eventually acquire some of the titles coming out this week -- yes, even that seemingly compromised looking BTTF boxset (at the right price).   Well, I suppose I *might* order the UK version of the Alien Anthology from Amazon UK before long (assuming it's indeed region-free) since the price there is much more palatable. Thanks again, Mike (and Pat too)! _Man_

Wow, I'm surprised to see Costco's pricing match Amazon for BTTF and the Alien set. But these are 2 big titles! I'll be there.

I just pulled the trigger on the Alien Anthology at Amazon.co.uk. For $56.97US shipped I'm willing to put up with the "uglier" packaging and a 6-10 day wait on delivery. That's $33.02 cheaper than the US version at Amazon.com. Go Brits! 

Careful man, there's a beverage here!

Nothing for me this week. I'll pick up BTTF and Winter's Bone when the prices come down. Just as well, because November's looking to be an expensive month.

I just couldn't resist that Alien Egg package, even at its ridiculous $150 price. It'll look good with my Terminator 2 head, Blade Runner briefcase and Planet of the Apes bust. Time to start collecting pop cans...

If you break down the price on the Alien movies, they're $22.50 a movie but there's 65 hours of supplements so given all that you get, the price isn't that bad. And the Back To The Future movies are $16 each.

The UK release breaks down to $14.25 per film. At that price the supplements are gravy. Now that's a deal.
