    Here we go, RoundUppers!

    Another week of new releases.

    I am thankful that it's a quiet week for me. I'd like to pick up Scarface (1932) sometime... Quiet week for you?

    Seems like lots of members here are fans of Suspiria...

    Thank you, Mike! And, yes, I don't need anything this week either.

    I appreciate his talent but am not particularly attached to Bruce Springsteen's music. So I wasn't sure what to expect with Blinded By the Light. But I liked it way more than I expected to in theaters and would recommend it as a rental whether or not you're a fan of Springsteen. it's not about him at all and the story that it does tell is unique and compelling.

    I expect I'll end up with the disc sooner or later. But after buying both The Peanut Butter Falcon and the Frozen II soundtrack this week, I don't need to spend release date prices on that next week. I'll wait and see if it gets a price cut as the holidays approach.

    That's the only title that draws my attention this week.

    Without any hesitation, I recommend "The Bad and the Beautiful" as a blind buy to anyone that hasn't seen this great film. It's probably the best movie ever made about Hollywood and the movie industry with some terrific acting performances and dialogue.

    I've got Blinded by the Light in my review queue, and should have it up very soon.

    Some nice classics up for grabs this week including, as others have said, The Bad and the Beautiful, Scarface, and the A&C box. I'll be waiting on the latter. Big boxes in the past come down drastically after about a year, and I have all of those films at least on DVD (and a few already on Blu), so I can wait it out.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike.

    Pricey week for me. I'll be getting the Abbott And Costello set, The Fan and the immortal classic Rock N Roll High School.

    I have the Criterion DVD and cannot wait for this blu-ray upgrade. Alastair Sim is great in this.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike. I am one of those Suspiria fans, and bit the bullet on the price for the 4K upgrade. I may pick up The Bad and the Beautiful, too. Not sure if Target is still running their Buy 2, Get 1 Free sale.
