    Atomic Blonde 4k is on its way to me this week.

    I'm gonna get Doctor Doolittle eventually...although I'm reasonably sure I'm going to be disappointed by the film. I only remember seeing it on TV years ago. Outside of "Talk to the Animals" I really don't remember all that much about it.

    And I've only heard great things about Wind River (including the Crawdaddy seal of approval!) so I will pick that up when it starts to appear in some sales down the road.

    I have SUCH a stack of movies to watch right now (current things. Never mind about all those unwatched flicks that are sitting on my shelves...). I thought the end of baseball season would allow me to get to some of them...but life has been busy.

    This is a big RoundUp in terms of content. Pre-holidays and all that.

    Safe shopping, RoundUppers!

    [And thanks for all the "likes" in recent weeks. If I forget to mention it, that doesn't mean they are unnoticed.]

    Also included: Prometheus; X-Men: Days of Future Past; Exodus: Gods & Kings; Dawn of the Planet of the Apes; The Book of Life; The Wolverine; I, Robot

    Not sure what all 15 titles are. They only list seven on their web site, though the sale prices may not yet be updated for some titles if they start with Sunday's sale. For instance, Assassin's Creed currently shows as $17.99 (Sat 4:20PM).

    Mike,

    Another recommendation that you ordered is Atomic Blonde, but for your eyes only. I don't think Peg will enjoy this violent film with a hot woman assassin.

    Now THAT'S an assassin Peg wouldn't mind watching at all! :laugh:

    It's can't tell you how many times we say to ourselves "those 'Buddies' movies should be great!" But then we realize that...no...they're not. :wacko:

    Thanks for another fine job on the RoundUp, Mike. I appreciate the links to the reviews, especially the one added just an hour before you posted your list. Much appreciated!

    Twilight Time has some major titles this month that I'm really looking forward to.

    Somehow I never saw Dr. Doolittle - does the film include the Tokyo Raid?

    I went and read some reviews of Dr. Dolittle on IMDB. It sadly sounds like a turkey. I guess I'll have to depend on my older film version.

    I'll get the George Romero set (the price is now up to $80) some day.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    Well if Dr Doolittle isn't to your taste maybe ... Miss Doolittle would be more highly recommended

    It's sad that Rex can disappoint. He was great in MFL, first half of Cleopatra, and the Agony and the Ecstasy.

    Atomic Blonde ended up being more sophisticated that I assumed it would be. You will like it Mike!

    I still don't know what's up with the 3D sale at Best Buy. They have a promo link on the website that you can click for a list of sale items, but there are some titles on the list not reduced to the sale price. They have Assassin's Creed pictured in the promo and on the list, but the price is $17.99, not the sale price of $9.99.

    Speculation is that it was supposed to be one of teh "Starting at 9.99" sales that the ad messed up.
    Several folks have called/chatted with Cust Service to have teh manual adjustment on the prices. Most have been allowed, though like always there have been some folks getting different answers (It's a mistake, it's expired, it's your imagination, etc)

    Hah!

    Best Buy's stupidly vague ad phraseology is coming back to bite them in the ass!?! Serves 'em right.

    Sorry I'm a bit late to this thread this week, but thank you, Mike, for your work, as always.

    I have Wind River and In This Corner of the World coming to me from Amazon this week. Both are among my favorite films of the year, and Wind River has additional personal significance to me, so I'm really looking forward to getting both.

    I wrote about In This Corner of the World a while back in the movies forum here: https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/threads/in-this-corner-of-the-world.354017/. Anybody who is curious about it, I invite you to go over there to check out so-far spoiler-free discussion. I think the film would make a good blind buy, especially at Amazon's low $11.99 price point right now.

    Irrelevant now since BBY has reduced the price of those 16 items to 9.99 to match the ad rather than continue to fight the probably incorrect ad. About half these are on the BF BBY 6.99 3D list so choose wisely if you're one of those that feel cheated if a price changes later
