I'll pick up Kentucky Fried Movie at some point but I'm in no hurry.

 

Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

Boy, every once in a while, we have a week like this with practically nothing new of note being released. I will get The Producers somewhere down the line.

 

And it's a rare week when there is nothing being released that has been assigned to me for review. So, I guess this qualifies as my summer vacation!

 

Thanks, Mike!

The Producers and Kentucky Fried Movie for sure, but not at those list prices. For those who like BN, their B2G1 sale is still on this week and those 2 are currently eligible.   If paired with 2 similar priced items, that would  decrease the overall price or Producers to $16 and KFM to around $11 each  -- a little less if you can do it in store. Not many coupons around right now either to help.

 

Shout Factory items aren;t known for super aggressive sales prices so it may take some work to get them a lot lower anytime soon.  

BN 50% Criterion Sale starts next week (July 9) so something to look forward to and BBY next Upgrade and Save should start on the 14th

Thanks Mike!  

 

Relatively slow week with the 4th of July holiday in the mix.  I'm very tempted to pick up The Producers but will wait until it falls below $20 first.  


DVD & Blu-ray - It's all about the movies!

Happy summer vacation, Matt!

 

Adding links to text in an html editor's box is still proving to be a challenge for me.  Sorry that I haven't kept up with inserting all your mid-week reviews into the OPs of the threads. 

 

I believe we have now entered what we can refer to as "the summer doldrums" in terms of releases.  There will be some new stuff of note coming down the pike...just not as much of it.

Thanks! Review-wise, things will pick up next week and then August will be very busy leading into the fall months which are crazy.

 

I knew something must be a problem since you've always been so good about updating review links. Hope you can sort it out eventually. No problem, however, if you can't.

I knew something must be a problem since you've always been so good about updating review links. Hope you can sort it out eventually. No problem, however, if you can't.

 

Basically, I enter the entire WRU now as HTML source code.  It has allowed me to do some things I couldn't do before. 

 

But, the problem is that I cannot edit the posts WYSIWYG.  I can only edit them in source code mode and I am not that skilled yet to figure out how to add a clickable link that way. 

 

I've got an HTML editor that I use as part of the process.  I could enter the link using it...but that means I need to keep constantly updating two different WRUs...making twice the work...blah blah blah...

 

I'm sure I'll figure it out soon.  It's about the only part of this new process I have yet to conquer.

 

I'm pleased with the rest of the result, though.  Personally, I like the new grids and the way they fill the workspace.  I really like the alternating line shading.  And, I've shaved off a fair amount of time that it takes each week putting the threads together.  Once I get the link thing figured out, I'll be in pretty good shape.

So I was going to complain that there was an issue with a link on the name Kentucky Fried Movie taking me to eBay, when I discovered it was because I was not logged in. I guess non-members get attacked with viglinks.

Not sure where to post this, but Warner Archive made an announcement on their Facebook page about an "Americana" sale at Amazon for selected WAC titles. Most are less than half-price. Sale ends July 31st.

Ooops.  Is that true?  :blush:

 

Then, good catch. 

 

You could always start a separate thread in the Bargains section if you'd like.  That might get some more attention to the sale.  It's a pretty darn good one.

 

Hmmmmmm.  I just checked the WA thread.  I started on page 1 to see if such an announcement was made by Ron in the OP.  There isn't any, Post #3 is news of a sale and there was also a mention of a code for a sale at the bottom of the page.

 

I then checked the last two pages and there was all kinds of talk about sales.  I'd say go for it.  If anyone says anything, I'll have your back (rather publicly) in THIS very post!  :thumbs-up-smiley:  Personally, I think that would be the obvious best place to let people know about the sale.

I stopped in my last local Blockbuster store tonight and found a BOGO deal on any used title (less than $29.99).

 

This is being billed as a "4th of July sale" and runs today through July 8th. 

 

As is often the case, anything that caught my eye was a title I already had.  My local store looked like it had a lot less used inventory on hand (than, say, a few months ago).  There were two tables and one section of wall shelves of used discs (mostly DVDs) instead of 5 or 6 tables along with the shelf space. 

 

I did make a purchase.  The BD of End of Watch and the DVD of Terms of Endearment.  The latter disc should signal an imminent Blu-ray release of ToE!  :biggrin: Just doin' my part to hurry some of these things along.  I have never owned that title on disc.

Yeah, I went ahead and ordered it with the BN.com B2G1 sale, basically  $16

 

Same with KFM and got it for around $10

 

Actually net outlay was 40% less since I was using some freebie gift cards, but that's another horse.
