    Happy RoundUp, campers!

    Best Buy is being a stick-in-the-mud this week!

    Thanks in advance for the "likes" to the OP!

    The two Bogie-Bacall films are must haves, of course. Otherwise, a lean week for me.

    Thanks for your work as usual, Mike, but nothing for me this week. I am disappointed to say that I really did not like The Good Dinosaur at all and feel no need to add it to my collection, which is a rarity for Pixar. Spotlight, I did like, but can't see it having enough replay value to justify a purchase.

    I'll be picking up Fargo: Season Two, The Serpent And The Rainbow and Spotlight (the best movie of 2015) this week. At some point, I'll get The Big Sleep, The Good Dinosaur and The Graduate.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    I wasn't expecting When Bette Met Mae, so thanks for including it!

    I've had "The Good Dinosaur" on preorder for quite some time as I missed it in the theaters and always purchase Pixar movies by rote. I hope I don't regret that decision based on what I just read here.

    In any event, as a big animation fan, I'm fairly sure that I'll find enough to enjoy to justify the purchase!

    Cannibal Woman in the Avocado Jungle of Death has to be one of the more interesting titles. I really mean just the title. There's no description of it at all on Amazon. I suspect this one is a real stinker.

    Mike, the formatting on the new forum software is really cutting off the heads of your kitties. I don't like that.

    Wow, Spotlight is out already? It's still playing in theaters here! Definitely renting that as there are other movies I want to see on "the big screen" this week.

    It opened back in November but it got re-released after the Oscar nominations.

    This is one of the biggest single weeks of new release purchases I've had in a while.

    The Big Sleep
    Key Largo
    The Good Dinosaur
    (a blind buy for me, too)
    Spotlight (Didn't get to it in the theaters)

    So, when you say "kitties"...do you mean "doggies?!? :D The lone iconic cat in the disc room (Fluffy Pumpkin) seems to be front and center in that new banner. But my beloved dogs must all have headaches!

    I must've forgotten to include the full WRU "Disc Room" image in this week's version. (I'm still getting a handle on a completely new way of posting up the info.) I just noticed I screwed up the formatting on one of the grids too...and I'm not sure how to edit this new article format. The last time I tried it didn't go well!

    I appreciate everyone's patience as I sort this all out.

    The other thing I should try is adjusting the aspect ratio of my original image to fit the new banner format better.

    By the way, Johnny. I think I noticed you say in another thread that you weren't sure how to put information from outside the forum into a quote box.

    In the editor, just click on the "+" sign icon (located between the film strip and camera icons).

    You'll see a dropdown menu. Click "QUOTE." and some good ol' BBCode will be inserted into the editor. Just slip whatever text you've copied from somewhere else in between the sets of brackets. All set.

    Thanks as always, Mike!

    Spotlight is a definite rental at Redbox (if they stock the Blu-Ray) or Vudu (if streaming is my only HD rental option). It looks like a terrific movie, but not one that would have enough replay value to justify a purchase.

    This year's "Doctor Who" Christmas Special would be a must-buy if they'd just go back to 1080i60 releases instead of the slowed down 1080p releases they've been doing.

    I may have missed the info but why is the WR in two separate sections?

    Even the long lost Flufferdoodle aka Fluffy Pumpkin is shown from the neck ruff down.

    Good Dinosaur 3D got cancelled, Good Dinosaur 2D is on the way. It's not one of Pixar's best movies, but I am a completist...
