    Big Week, RoundUppers!

    Two pre-orders for me: Skywalker (4k from Target.com) and Showboat (Blu from Amazon).

    Can't wait! :D

    Even though I didn't care much for the movie, I've got the Target exclusive UHD release of ROTS coming in the mail; that cover is just terrific.

    Tonight I ordered the Skywalker Saga complete set from Best Buy, unfortunately they are not offering a pre-sale for the Rogue One 4K which I was going to get at the same time to complete my Star Wars collection in 4K.

    And apparently only people from the NY capitol region are participating in this thread.

    As always, thank you for your work, Mike.

    As far as I am concerned, The Last Jedi is the final Star Wars movie. So, nothing for me this week on disc. But I do have a new book coming from Amazon which I'm very much looking forward to reading.

    Some wonderful films on display this week. I hope folks can find something they like from among the choices.

    Thanks for the RoundUp!

    Probably the biggest week in years for me. I'll pick up the Star Wars 4K box, the Target exclusive for The Rise Of Skywalker, Rogue One, Mr. Robot: Season Four and probably TROS Blu-ray as a gift for a friend.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! Good to know how broke I'm going to be. :)

    I ordered a bunch of stuff from the Disney Movie Club yesterday, including all the SW 4k's (aside from Rise of Skywalker). I'm considering this order to be a late birthday present for me. I think my grand total was $250ish for 17 movies. They should all be here this time next week.

    When I can find RoS for a somewhat cheaper price-and it will happen this year, I have no doubt-I'll add it to the collection.

    Thanks Mike!

    Just a reminder that on March 31st, the nine Star Wars movies are individually being released on 4K disc too along with Rogue One. Amazon has them on sale, but order from them at your own risk.:)

    Is there a reason this is a Report, rather than a Round-Up?

    I'm currently working on ROS (4k) and hope to have it up on Sunday. Song of Names is waiting for me to view and review.

    Can't Imagine.

    :wacko:

    Fixed it as best I can...but the word "report" is still showing up in places. Oh well.

    You all knew what I meant! :laugh:

    I think you were just being conscientious. A round-up implies a group gathering, and those are forbidden at this time.

    My Target was having an in-store special on the Frozen II 4K Special Edition $24.9X vs $29.9X for the regular 4K

    It would be nice for Target to offer the same “Exclusive” type packaging for the other Star Wars 4K movies so my “Rise of Skywalker” doesn’t sit all by its lonesome on the shelf.

    May or may not be of use for this weeks planned purchases -- the advance Target ad for Sunday April 5 is showing a new B2G1F offer on movies. It says excludes New Releases and Preorders, but that hasn't always been the case. Also the items included in the last several sales have varied widely -- a couple sales included virtually every Movie, the last sale or two was much more SELECT ITEMS only.

    No idea if the Star Wars 4k items will be included, but if they are it could be a nice opp to bring the prices down substantially

    Thanks for the heads up, David. If I can get it to work for Rise of Skywalker and Frozen II, I'll find another non-SW and Disney title to add for the offer.
