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!

Tintin 3D for me from Best Buy. Wonder if the $3 coupon & the triple points apply to it or just the dvd & blu ray combo pack? Thanks for the roundup, Mike.

Thanks Mike.  TinTin for me, American Pie when they go on sale for $9.99 sometime later this year.  For those of you who still don't have Kick Ass or Scott Pilgrim, they are well worth the $9.99 sale price at Best Buy.  Both have had multiple repeat viewings (and are due for another round) in the Gregorich house.

The adult in me held off on three releases I was going to grab from last week...and nothing again this week.  Though I may not be able to hold out through the rest of the week.  I'm weak when it comes to those discs... Thanks Mike!

I had hoped for a better price on the 35th anniversary of Wizards. I may wait for a drop.

Thanks as always, Mike, for the RoundUp.


I'll have the review for The Killing up later today. My Week with Marilyn should be up tomorrow. I'm expecting Wizards and The Descendants this week, but they haven't arrived yet.

I'll be picking up The Adventures of Tintin and maybe Young Adult this week. I may get the American Pies when they go on sale (which could be in a few weeks when the new movie opens). The Descendants is well worth a rental. Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

Hit Girl absolutely stole the film.


Many HTF members said it's one of their favorite films of recent years.  [url=http://www.hometheaterforum.com/t/303340/a-few-words-about-kick-ass-in-blu-ray]Even RAH loved it!

Yeah, both Kick-Ass and Scott Pilgrim are highly recommendable for anyone not likely to find them offensive. My wife actually liked Kick-Ass a lot -- more so than Scott Pilgrim. Then again, she does generally prefer action flix a bit more than so-called chick flix. :D Anyhoo, thanks for another WRU, Mike. _Man_

Thanks for the RoundUp Mike. Lots of rentals for me this week, but no purchases. How are you feeling Mike? I hope you are doing better.

I own both and enjoyed both movies very much. Jacob

Sorry to hear that it's been that serious -- guess I missed much of the detail posted before. Glad to hear that you're still able to find some joy and peace despite all that though. Will be praying for you then... Peace... _Man_

How are you feeling Mike? I hope you are doing better.

Well...I wasn't going to make a big deal about it...but since I've been discussing it along the way... I was actually back in the hospital this past week--again.  After the recent round of blood clots and pulmonary embolisms, I was put on a lifetime of blood thinners (not an unusual decision considering it ws my time of throwing a blood clot from my legs into my lungs). But, weirdly, I threw yet another clot this past week--even though on the blood thinners.  THAT'S not good.  So I had to go in and get a filter installed in my vena cava to catch any errant clots.  The procedure went extremely well...but the appearance of new clots has set back a lot of the progress I had made after the long bout with pneumonia and the first round of clots.  But, I'm just thrilled to still be ticking and churning out RoundUps!  :D   And, thanks to David (and everyone else) for your best wishes.

And Matt's review of The Killing can be found HERE.


But, I'm afraid we've had an incident with the pricing grids this week and links are sorta problematic at the moment.

Thanks for finding the review, Mike. Much appreciated even if there are problems with the links this week. No biggie for sure.


P.S. I still plan right now to have My Week with Marilyn up tomorrow night.
