Thanks for the price list and posters, Mike!

I'll eventually see Jumanji and The New Centurions. I'll probably be content with my DVD of The Black Scorpion unless there is a drastic price reduction.

Thank you for your work, Mike!

Downsizing was an interesting failure full of big ideas that didn't wok at all as a cohesive whole. Those interested would be advised to rent it. I'm gad I saw it, but I really don't feel the need to see it again.

I really liked Pitch Perfect 3 much more than I expected to and would like to get the trilogy set at some point, since I haven't bought the others yet, either.

But I don't want it quite enough to buy it right away over some other big titles that have been coming out recently or are coming out soon in the coming weeks So I'll wait on it for a bit, and it would be nice if it came down from $42 in the process.

As such, I'm taking a breather this week.

I want to get The Burbs and we really enjoyed Jumanji so I’ll pick it up.

Mike, The Passion of Joan of Arc is a must see/must own at some point. Glorious film.

Jose, I've already pre-ordered Kino's version of the 1948 Joan of Arc (with Ingrid Bergman). Something tells me that'll push my hand. But I'll probably wait until the next B&N Criterion sale. I've already got a growing list of Criterions on my list for that sale: Tom Jones and The Awful Truth.

I already own the Masters of Cinema edition of Passion/Joan, but I'll wait for the B&N sale and pick up the Criterion edition as well. I saw Bergman's Joan and For Whom the Bell Tolls (complete versions, I might add), at my local cinemas in PR. They were so beautiful, those 3-strip Tech prints! The movies were also quite long. Even though I was quite young, how could one not appreciate those gorgeous close-ups of Bergman?

Thanks as always, Mike!

Jumanji
looked dreadful to me, but given the cultural phenomenon it became I'll probably Redbox it at some point to see what all of the fuss is about. But no purchases. Which is just as well since we've got Star Wars coming up the following week.

I'll be picking up The 'Burbs this week.
This would have been a must buy for me if Universal had released it with catalog title pricing instead of licensing it to Shout, which charges first run pricing. Just can't justify $20 for a thirty year old movie with minor cult status that I've seen a gazillion times on basic cable.

Thanks Jake. I missed Downsizing in the theater and will likely Redbox it now.

Thanks to you too Mike!

Thanks for another Weekly RoundUp, Mike!

Going to hold off on this weeks releases for better pricing. I have quite a few on pre-order for next week that I'm saving up for.

If you don't care about special features, I'm pretty sure that Universal did a movie-only release that was fairly cheap. Looking at Amazon, I got lucky because I pre-ordered the Shout Factory one and the price dropped to about $14 at some point so I'm getting it at that price rather than the $20 they're currently charging.

Yeah, I believe there was a budget-priced bare bones release of "The 'Burbs" as a Best Buy exclusive last year.

The BB 3/$50 UHD sale was advertised today in their online ad with 16 total titles.

They also have 2/$30 UHD on swine Fox titles.

There was also a Disney BD display with various titles marked down. Frozen, Nig Hero 6, live action Cinderella and Jungle Book and a bunch more.

Nothing else stood out to me from the ad or any in store displays.

Amazon is still doing their 3/$50 UHD sale. Titles continue to change.

I didn’t see the 2/$30 Fox titles when I checked. I wonder if that’s regional. Or if it’s not, if you’d be willing to post a link, Jason.

Hey RoundUppers!

Nothing pre-ordered this week for me. About the only title I might be interested in is Criterion's silent The Passion of Joan of Arc.

No Best Buy flyer...again. :angry:

Safe shopping!
As of this writing Amazon has it is 19 cents cheaper than a 1/2 price sale (I pre-ordered it in February ... :cool:)
