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!

I just checked Disney Movie Rewards and I can't find any coupons for Lion King 1.5 or 2.  $41 is a bit steep in my head for those two movies. Possibly Game of Thrones, but we'll see.  Still haven't started watching Boardwalk Empire... Thanks a bunch, Mike!

Thanks Mike!  There is a $5 coupon for Footloose on BD: www.footloosecoupon.com

Game of Thrones and since my daughter is about to lose her first tooth any day now Tooth Fairy 2.  I don't see any mention of it, but I was talking to Universal this past week and they said that Harvey was pushed back to fall, so don't look for it this week.

Thanks for the roundup, Mike. There is a youtube video unboxing Lion King 1 1/2 & 2 which shows the coupon attached to the front for $8 off when you buy them both on the same receipt. I think Target is the only one advertising it but it looks like it may show up on all copies. If so Best Buy's $2 cheaper each so instead of $20.99 each they'll be $18.99 each. With tax they'll still be more expensive than direct to videos should be.

Excellent, Bill.  Thanks!  I also just checked Amazon and they are offering the two movies together with the $8 off.  So it should come out to the same price for me whether I do in store or online.  And seeing how BB is dead to me, I'll be doing Amazon.  I'm not in a rush for the movies, but I know this will be the best price we'll get.

My understanding was  9-1/2 Weeks not coming out until March 20th, but that would explain why review copies have been sent out already.

I am working on my reviews for Footloose (2011) and To Catch a Thief today - and I should have my interview with Footloose director Craig Brewer up today or tomorrow as well.

To Catch a Thief looks and sounds terrific and is such a good price I don't think anyone interested could pass it up!

Well, gee ... if that means they'll put the closed-captions in (they are there on the old DVD), and take out the color - then I'm all for a delay. :rolleyes: :D Color? Seriously? At the Amazon site it says:

Format: Color, Full Screen Language: English

Until they add the CC back in and remove the color, this is a non-buy for us.

I, too, am a bit taken aback by this. :confused: Also--is this the improved image quality we've been promised? If it is, I'm still gonna wait for it to come down in price by at least two-thirds! :P

My review for Immortals can be found here.


There may be other Fox and/or Disney title reviews for this week, but I have no way of knowing what will or won't be sent.

Is it just me, or is the price difference between the DVD and BD of the new Transformers cartoon completely ludicrous? Even Amazon is charging nearly double for the BD (and BB is charging well MORE than double). FWIW, back during the holidays, I think I paid $45 for the complete 8-disc Lion King set (which includes the sequels) from Amazon. In my experience, if it was that cheap before, it'll be that cheap again. I will definitely be getting Game of Thrones on BD -- when it shows up at Costco for $20. :)

$35 isn't too bad for an HBO series on blu. Still I'll snag it form$20 with $5 in BB reward points and $10 in shop kick points. Blind buy for me and that is rare. Since I have read how great it is I thought i'd give it a go with the extra money points I have.

I haven't seen the show, but the book was great (which is saying something, because I've almost given up on reading fiction in general). The second book was. . .pretty good. That's as far as I've read. :)
