    Safe Shopping, RoundUppers!

    TS4 is the 800-pound gorilla of this week's releases. But keep a sharp eye out for some other gems, too.

    Thank for visiting! :thumbsup:

    Thank you, Mike!

    Toy Story 4 for me this week, of course. Like a lot of people, I was extremely skeptical when Pixar announced another Toy Story film, but the end result stands shoulder-to-shoulder with its predecessors. It's one of my favorite movies of the year and I can't wait to own it.

    Also, although it's not a disc, I know we have a lot of Harry Potter fans around the forum so thought it's worth mentioning that there's another big fourth title being released on Tuesday: the full-color illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire with artwork by Jim Kay. His work on the earlier books is gorgeous and stunning, and I am really looking forward to seeing how he has visualized the fourth one.

    Goblet of Fire illustrated.

    Thanks, Mike, for another RoundUp, and an early one at that!

    I am scheduled to review an item or two in the list, but they haven't arrived. Looking forward to seeing Toy Story 4. I didn't make it to the theater, so I'm eager now to see it.

    Big week for me. I'll be picking up Deadwood, Midsommar and Toy Story 4.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)


    I don't want to oversell it but I think it's one of the best movies of the year.

    Dear Amazon: I want to own Toy Story 4, and I will be buying it on Tuesday. Just not from you as I normally would. Disney still gets my money, you get none. Can you explain this business model to me? :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the prices, Mike. Nothing for me this week. Disney's price for Toy Story 4 is too high for me, so I will wait until it hits their streaming service to see it.

    Three, not four, for me this week. No, not the silent classics from Criterion. Rather, Eureka's Three Films with Sammo Hung.
    It's good to be region free.

    Target is having another "Buy 2 Get 1 Free" sale this week. That's at least 3 such sales in the past couple of months. I bought several pre-orders with these type of sales.

    Not video, but my copy of the illustrated Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has shipped and is scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

    And the link has been added to the grid! Thanks, Todd!

    And now Mike scurries off to read what is probably going to be another glowing review of an HD Pixar release.

    Even though the film was my least favorite in the series, I just can't see leaving it off my shelf.

    Interestingly enough, at our local Wal-Mart on Tuesday morning at 7:45 a.m. they didn't have Toy Story 4 out yet. This seems unusual for a major release. It was "in a box in the back" and the employee "wasn't sure which box" and said "Give me fifteen minutes" to find it. This resulted in a lost sale on Wal-Mart's part; my copy came from Best Buy later in the day to avoid the wait.

    You would think that Wal-Mart would make it a priority to have one of the biggest movies of the year out and on display first thing when they open on its release day. They have to expect that a lot of people will come in there for it, especially since Amazon is a non-factor with Disney releases. What does it say about their priorities regarding physical media for them not to have this easily available?

    Probably just bad local management.

    But that's just sloppy....and extremely aggravating for you, I'm sure, Jake!

    Over the last year or so, I've basically had the same thing happen to me multiple times at my local Target. If you get there before 10:30 or 11, you're waiting for them to pull it out even major new releases from a box in the back.
