    We're pretty much in the home stretch...heading to the finish line of the 2017 holiday season.

    After next week, most of us can take a deep breath from all the new releases and sales from all the various vendors and labels.

    Remember to practice safe shopping, be careful, and don't forget...to have fun out there! :D

    Pretty much just the 2nd Kingsman film for me this week. Since I've already got the earlier Blu release of The Apartment, I'm going to need a lot of convincing to upgrade.

    Thank you, Mike!

    Kingsman was fun to watch once, but I don't really feel the need to own it.

    Detroit is a sensational movie, and deserves to be seen by a wider audience than found it theatrically. But it's way too intense and difficult for me to want to see it repeatedly. I would highly recommend a rental if you haven't sen it yet, but once is enough.

    So, nothing for me on the Blu-ray side of things this week. But because Disney's feud with them mercifully does not extend to CDs, Amazon will be delivering me The Last Jedi soundtrack on Friday.

    Thanks for this week's RoundUp. Like you, Mike, I'm not convinced I need the new Blu-ray of The Apartment, but I might change my mind later. I reviewed the earlier Blu-ray release several years ago.

    Nothing else for me this week. That's fine. I have stacks of unwatched discs I want to get to, and I need to start some holiday watching, too..

    Looking at Amazon, The Apartment got a last second delay to December 26.

    Detroit has the longest sustained suspense scenes that I've seen in a long time.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    The Kingman sequel will have to wait until a future sale that brings the price below the $10 Mark.

    If Best Buy decides to reveal what it's exclusives are for the latest Game of Thrones season, I might be persuaded to pick that up.

    Thanks as always, Mike!

    Huh. Thanks, Travis.

    Yeah, Adam. Probably won't take all that long, right?

    I could be totally wrong but looking at it on the BB website, I think the only exclusive part is the 'sigil' paper slipcase thingie.

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike!

    It is an Arrow Films only purchase this week, though it appears The Apartment is delayed, so just Pulp for me.
    This is a blind-buy, I hope I enjoy it.

    Mike, thanks for the Round Up, and the photo of Sgt. Esterhaus from Hill Street Blues -- I loved that show.

    It looks like The Apartment is delayed a couple of weeks, so the only thing I may be getting this week is the Synapse release of Suspiria. Rumor has it that copies may be shipped out this week.

    I didn't see it if it was posted, Mike, but Cartwheel has 20% discounts on the first four Harry Potter flicks on 4k (Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban and Goblet of Fire). Regular price is apparently $24.99, which means pre tax price should be right at $20 a pop. There is also 5% off Despicable Me 3, all formats, and 10% of the Men in Black Trilogy 4k.

    I'll probably bite on HP because I have the others. And that'll be it for HP until Fantastic Beasts 2 comes out.

    Thank you, as always.

    Thanks Mike,

    pre-ordered The Apartment,when it was first announced, the price drop since then makes it a good buy, Pre-ordered Suspiria, so waiting on that as well, so the only two i am looking at picking up are the late announced Luke Cage blu ray which is not showing up anyplace except best buy, and trying to decide which color egg Steelbook of Game of Thrones S7.

    Kingsman might be a possible, if they are going to release another "Premium Edition"

    "Luke Cage" is supposed to be released this Tuesday as well although I can't seem to find a preorder for it on Amazon. Being lazy I was hoping that a wonderful, highly talented person at HTF ( <- grovelling :) ) would find it and make it readily available for us mere mortals ( <- more grovelling ) could just simply click on it :D

    Regards,

    BTW - never too early to thank you Mike and the gang for all the hard, wonderful work that you do throughout the year !

    It looks like Sorcerer's Stone is going to be a tough one to find. No Target in my area has it, BB is out and Amazon isn't listing it as far as I can tell on mobile. The hunt continues!

    I had no references for a release of Luke Cage this week, Shakeel. So I'm feeling confident that you were misdirected somehow. In fact, I can't find information on a release date ANYWHERE.

    Thanks to you, though (and everyone else) for the kind words.
