    Another week of high profile New (and catalog) releases.

    It seems like everyone should be able to find something in this week's list that they might like! :D But I'm sure there'll be some readers taking the week off.

    Third week in a row with no Best Buy flyer.

    I found a discussion on BestBuy.com's support blog in which a BB rep stated the following to someone who inquired about the lack of printed BB ads:

    If they think digital only is a smart strategy, I wish them well. I hope that someone there realizes how stupid the "we're saving the planet" argument is. If it's a marketing strategy to increase sales and reduce advertising costs, THAT I could accept/believe.

    Safe shopping everybody! :D

    Target says Exclusive Steelbook for Grease Collection but that is what I pre-ordered on Amazon.

    That's interesting, Rob.

    I hadn't even realized it but I had pre-ordered the steelbook collection on Amazon, too (back when it was $26.17). I don't care really one way or another about steelbooks.

    Not sure why Target is advertising it to be an EXCLUSIVE when the same exact thing is for sale on Amazon.

    I'm nearly positive that I haven't had one all year so far.

    Thanks as always, Mike.

    I don't think I'll be able to get to a brick and mortar on Tuesday, so I'm probably going to pick up Grease 4K on Amazon.

    Thanks for the round up as always, Mike. I plan on picking up the UHD version of Grease once the price drops. The Arrow release of Killer Klowns is somewhat intriguing, but I think my current BD version will suffice.

    Thank you, Mike!

    Paddington 2 is one of the best movies ever made.

    Also, I'm sure I'll end up with the new Blu-ray of Grease sooner or later.

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike. There are several high profile releases I'm interested in this week including Ruby Gentry and the 4K Grease.

    I had one other review up already for a release this week: The Maze 3D. That review can be found here.

    "but please know we are not doing this to make shopping harder with us, but more to see how we can reduce our footprint on this planet!"

    Best Buy has definitely reduced my footprints in their stores, and their footprint of stuff I've brought home.

    I had Grease preordered until this morning. The price is too high for me right now, especially with a flood of other titles coming in Q2. Later in the year when the price drops I’m sure I’ll bite.

    Thank you Mike!

    I just want to say Hostiles is a fantastic picture, particularly if you like Westerns so if you have not seen it and were wondering...it's damn good.

    Nothing for me this week. More and more, I find myself streaming shows that I'd much rather buy, but for whatever reason Amazon does not put out shows like Bosh, Man in the High Castle and others on Blu-ray. I don't understand why they don't do physical releases?

    It sucks for collectors like myself. Plus, I don't have my Big Screen downstairs set-up for streaming so I'm forced to watch the shows on my computer screen.... Sigh.

    Mike, thanks for all your good work!

    FYI Cartwheel has 15% off Grease Collection BD and the DVD, BD and UHD versions. UHD is apparently 19.99 per the app and the coupon expires on the 28th. Please check your location before heading out on Tuesday...
