I'm a really excited RoundUpper this week with the release of A Dog's Purpose. It's a wonderful movie based on a wonderful book. I heartily recommend it to any dog lover that reads these pages.

Thanks for your work, Mike! :)

I loved The Red Turtle in the theater and will probably get that at some point down the line, but have to pass for now because there's too much else coming out this month.

No movies for me this week, but I do have a new book coming Tuesday. And my copy of Awesome Mix Vol. 2, which was supposed to arrive Friday, is due Monday after being delayed by Amazon's late shipment. So that's enough for now.

The Seven Days in May Blu-Ray got the RAH seal of approval, so I've got that preordered with Barnes & Noble.

I'll scout around Tuesday, and if I can get "The Last Ship" Season 3 for a low enough price I'll snap that up as well. Otherwise, I'll hold off until the price comes down.

Thanks as always, Mike!

Seven Days in May for me, but that Bob Hope Salutes the Troops sounds interesting, depending on the price.
I may have to take a trip to Walmart to look at that.

Thanks for the RoundUp!

I got this week's review items assigned to me taken care of (still have some titles to get to that have passed street date).

I am really looking forward to getting Seven Days in May to replace my old snapper case DVD of it.

Nothing here...but considering I just dropped $75 on one title (two discs)...yeah, that's for the best.

–Best Buy is advertising the following Blu-ray titles this week for $17.99: Doctor Strange, Patriot’s Day, Assassin’s Creed, Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War.
I don't know if this is just online, or only in-store in certain regions, but I stopped at a Best Buy in NH yesterday wanting to purchase Ant-Man and it did not seem to be on sale for this price. There was no sale tag on the shelf and when I asked a blue shirt to scan it, he said it was $19.99.

I'm at work and don't have access to the ad, Malcolm.

But the Blu of Ant-Man was clearly noted on the page opposite the media listings along with a couple other Marvel films Blu-rays for $17.99 apiece. It was a very specific Marvel promotion.

Did you get a flyer when you were at the store? It was listed with some TVs.

I'll post an image later.

And while I have the Albany Best Buy plugged-in in that image, I also checked the online flyer attached to the West Lebanon, NH store and it was the same.

I flipped through the flyer and looked on the media pages. I didn't notice the separate listing with the TV's. But the blue shirt scanned it and said it was $19.99. Oh, well. I can order online if I want it.

I've seen Ant-Man "Used" in my local FYE stores--if maybe you want to give that a shot. Is there still an FYE in the University Mall?

I believe so, though I seldom seem to visit to the mall anymore. I'll have to swing in there sometime if I'm at Barnes & Noble.

After reading RAH's Few Words on Seven Days in May, I will be picking it up. I may grab the UHD releases down the line. Always looking for new discs to spin there. And I'm planning to rent The Red Turtle.

Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

Ended up using a 20 percent coupon to get the third season of "The Last Ship" for $22.75+tax. I was hoping my local store would stock it so I could get the extra 10 percent in-store member discount, but no such luck.

I've really been getting my money's worth out of my Barnes & Noble membership. They used to be so much more than everybody else that they were never the cheapest option unless they were doing a Criterion half off sale or something. But a combination of the brick & mortar stores and Amazon not having as many loss leader release day deals and Barnes & Noble not being quite as expensive as they used to be has made them increasingly competitive, especially if you have a coupon. Since I'm not a Prime member, the free expedited shipping for B&N is a plus, too.

I think BBY and BN run hand in hand over the last 3 years for my dollars. Amazon US was somewhere around 15-20th ranking retailers on my movie $$$ over teh last 3 years. BN makes you work for their sales, but sometimes they can shock you.

Option 3 and 4 - if your store doesn't have an item in stock they can most of the time get it for you pick up so you can use your coupons and member discounts, but the store price and coupons are dependent on when you pick it up and not order.
Optionally have the store order it for you on their system as a ship to home order -- this qualifies as an instore purchase which mean instore price, store coupons, and member discount apply. Several of my stores will even allow me to call in a ship to home order which is nice since the closest is 45 minutes. The only thing different on a phone in order is not being able to use a gift card so I lose any possible discounts I have on those.

I used this option to great effect in December during the 40% off sale for numerous Warner Archive selections. Since those are rarely ins store you either have to remember to order them fro pickup while teh sale is active or do the ship to home. The WAC selection as usual were not 40% off online, but were as 'instore' items (the advantage to have store/online prices officially separate). The regular discount codes were inactive on those items coded 40% off online whether or not you got them online or instore, but the item not discounted online allowed both 40%, coupons, and member discounts as an 'instore' purchase.

Next 40% sale is normally in mid June though the summer sale has shrunk from all month a few years ago to 2 weeks in 2015 and a single week in 2016.
