    I'm a little foggy this week, RoundUppers.

    I got diagnosed with "Type A Rapid" flu." This is serious stuff. Do everything you can to stay away from it!

    Excited about a 4k release of Groundhog Day--one of my absolute most favorite movies of all time.

    And I'm hopeful that Goodbye Christopher Robin will be good. I pre-ordered it.

    Is that the reason why you haven’t seen The Greatest Showman yet?

    Get well soon! I am 67, got it and followed it with acute bronchitis. Three weeks of pure horror. Stay in and get plenty of rest and fluids. There's not much more you can do. Oh, take your meds.

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike. Sorry to read you're under the weather. Get better soon!

    I've pre-ordered The Hanging Tree and looking forward to receiving it. Will eventually be getting Husbands and Wives from TT. Not sure about 4K Groundhog's Day. I got the Blu-ray as a Christmas present a couple of years ago, but it still sits unopened. (I have seen the movie several times and really do like it but haven't found the desire to watch it again lately.)

    Get better soon, Mike. You are quite the trooper entering the Round Up information while so ill. :thumbsup:

    I have Argento's Opera on pre-order from Amazon for a lower $18 price than currently listed -- been looking forward to upgrading that one from DVD for many years. I may pick up the UHD of Groundhog Day at some point. I love the film, but am not sure it's one I really need to upgrade from BD.

    Nothing for me this week.

    Feel better, Mike and thanks for the prices! :)


    If you're into extras, I believe that there's a multi-disc set for Opera coming in a few months. I'm nearly positive that disc one/the movie for that will be the same as the one coming out on Tuesday.

    It's at the top of the list for sure. We came real close to seeing it a few days ago, but we just had too many other things to do that day. And now this. My doctor has basically quarantined me for five days.

    I hope its still in the theaters for a little while more.

    Take care of yourself, Mike, and get well. The good thing is you should be able to watch a lot of films in the next five days.

    Sorry to hear that. It is nasty. Just recovering from it around our house. Feel better soon.

    I got the shot for over age 65, still got the flu. And no, you don't feel like watching anything.

    Unfortunately, that's been the case most of today.

    Nope. No flu shot.

    I've been reading several accounts that the shots weren't too effective this year.

    The word is they were only about 10% effective this year.

    There is apparently a special version of the flu shot (quad) that includes more protection than the "regular" flu shot You have to ask for it ...

    https://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/vaccine/quadrivalent.htm

    "Will quadrivalent flu vaccine be more expensive than trivalent flu vaccines?
    Quadrivalent flu vaccines may cost more than trivalent vaccines. Ask your insurance provider or doctor to find out how much you may need to pay and how much of the cost is covered by insurance."

    Depends on whose word you believe
    http://time.com/5105929/why-is-the-flu-so-bad-2018/
    "The CDC estimates that the vaccine will be effective against roughly 30% of H3 viruses this year."

    I got Geostorm 3D from Best Buy last week. Not sure why they had it a week early. If you like mindless CG natural diasters and things blowing up in space, you might enjoy it. But don't expect an award-winning plot. The 3D was also nothing special, so anyone who might buy it just for the 3D may be disappointed.

    May pick up Jigsaw, but more likely to wait for a price reduction.

    Thanks, Travis, but extras have never been a big deal for me. It's all about the film in my case. I think I will be satisfied with this release.
