I neglected to include in the OP that Wal-Mart has a number of exclusives (all at a very nice $10 pricepoint, I believe) due on July 5.  They include:

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World When Harry Met Sally

Legally Blonde

Throw Momma from the Train

A Fish Called Wanda

Thanks, Mike. Too bad there aren't any Walmarts in my neck of the woods or I'd drop by for a couple of their BD exclusives. Will probably give Of Gods and Men a rent in the coming weeks. Have a great day w/ The Family! ... and a great Fourth of July to follow! _Man_

What a totally crappy release week.  Depending on how I feel, I may grab a catalogue title or two...but maybe not.  I'm overflowing with "stuff" I haven't watched yet as it is.  (And it's going to be a glorious summer, so who wants to stay inside?)

Yes, it is a slow one, but I won't be able to resist that Crack in the World, sight unseen.  I'll have Mad World coming in the mail from Walmart.  And I believe the B&N Criterion sale begins next week, so a bit of a break before my wallet gets blown to smithereens is not such a bad thing.

You know, I kind of welcome this break in purchasing. LoTR wiped me out, and I am spending quite a bit for this long holiday weekend. If I happen to be near a Wal Mart I will look for IAMMMW, but like Man, there aren't many near me.

The price for Das Boot certainly went up. I pre-ordered this from Amazon back in early April for $17.99.

I'll be picking up "Mad, Mad World" and "Honeymoon in Vegas". The only DVD I ever saw for "Honeymoon ..." was not only non- anamorphic, but MARed as well! So I'm hoping for a better presentation from the Blu-ray (with hopefully a nice DTS-HD MA audio presentation to showcase the "rocking" Elvis homages.

If you don't already have it, Amazon has slashed the price of the 5-hour television version to $8.49.

What's with "The Complete Gidget Collection" listed as a new release? I haven't heard anything about a reissue and your link goes to the same 2004 release of the pan-and-scan DVD collection.

Frankly, I'm not sure...except that it showed up on one of the new release lists I used to put the RoundUp together and there WAS a listing for a new release (July 5) at amazon when I was originally researching their prices for this week.


When I went to find a link for the price table last night, however, there was only the older listing.  I decided to include it...figuring no harm, no foul.  Didn't realize it was pan-and-scan.

Yeah, Gidget which was shot in CinemaScope is definitely pan-and-scan, while the other two were shot spherically and are probably open-matte on the DVD set. In any case none are OAR. There was a big brouhaha when it first came out.

I'm at a loss as to why there was a new listing (with the July 5th release date) on Amazon...only to then have it disappear. I will pull the entire thing from this week's WRU...since it's a pan-and-scan release.  It has been  a long time since I've had to do that.  Glad to see those days long gone.
