    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, RoundUppers!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    A quiet couple of weeks ahead.

    I suspect I'll be back with an update when I get access to the Target and Best Buy ads for the week of January 2nd.

    Hope you all get what you want under the Christmas tree!

    Mike

    I'll be getting The Apartment and the immortal classic Hell Night. The deleted scenes are probably going to get me to immediately buy The Breakfast Club too.

    For those interested in rentals or Netflix, American Made and Battle Of The Sexes are both good.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! Merry Christmas and happy New Year to everyone! :)

    Thank you as always, Mike!

    Nothing for me either of these weeks. American Made was a fun movie, and I would not hesitate to recommend a rental for those interested. But I don't really fel the need to own it.

    Thanks, Mike, for the "double feature" work on the RoundUp. I had hoped that Universal might send Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid for review, but they jumped right over it to send some January titles instead.

    Happy Holidays, everyone!

    Thanks, as always, Mike. The next two weeks look to be empty for me, aside from any sales I don't know about yet.

    Sidenote to last week's convo about the Nolan discs on 4k: I found everything at Best Buy (sans the Nolan set and Interstellar) today. There were plenty of copies on the shelf. Target had none, but thy did have the long-elusive first Harry Potter on 4k. So I snagged the three Batman films and HP 1 (with Cartwheel discount) today.

    The dogs and I watched Batman Begins tonight. Man, what a fantastic film. I thought it looked great on the format, too. Not qite sure what the neighbors thought of the audio, though. I'll probably hear about that tomorrow... ;)

    The BestBuy ad shows the UHD steelbooks of Fifth Element and Close Encounters for $14.99, but online they're showing as $22.99.

    I won't be able to get to a store until Tuesday to confirm the price, but ive been wanting to add these titles to my collection.

    Thanks for all your hard work on the Weekly RoundUps, Mike! We sure appreciate it.

    Just The Apartment for me, whenever Amazon chooses to send it.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

    I have The Apartment on order from Amazon, and that is all for me. I do have the Harry Potter UHD 8-film set on the way form the Barnes & Noble sale ($85 plus tax) and A Few Good Men from Best Buy ($14.99), plus I got a couple of discs as Christmas presents. So we will have lots to watch -- I still have not watched everything I bought during Thanksgiving weekend.

    I'm probably not in the market for this anyway, but...what IS this? It's very rare that Target would advertise something I've never heard of before, but here we are.

    It's a Hallmark movie. There are a few being released this week. They didn't make the RoundUp cut.

    About the only thing to distinguish it is that it stars Rebecca Romijn (and real life husband Jerry O'Connell).

    "Hallmark movie" would explain why I don't know anything about it. Lol. Thanks.
