    Hey RoundUppers!

    Kind of an odd week for new releases. Pretty quiet but maybe there's a release that you've been waiting for for a very long time!

    Good luck and safe shopping!

    And, Happy Memorial Day!

    Looking forward to getting The Man Who Watched Trains Go By. This is a blind buy from ClassicFlix for me.

    I'll pick up Annihilation this week.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    I wasn’t able to see Annihilation in theaters, but I’m considering a blind buy.

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

    I'll wait for some reviews to see if Criterion's Midnight Cowboy is a significant step-up from MGM's already released Blu-ray. I'm sure the bonuses are excellent, but I'm more curious about what the transfer looks like.

    I liked ex machina so I may check out annihilation. Very odd that the 4K is a Best Buy exclusive. Usually their exclusives are older catalog titles not new releases.

    Not much this week; however, I did see a "forgotten" favorite -- Cold Turkey! I saw this in the theater in the 60s and had almost forgotten it. It was a hoot! One of Dick Van Dyke's best theatrical efforts. Worth a blind buy if you're a Dick Van Dyke fan.

    Thanks, Mike, for all you work. It's much appreciated, even more so now that TVShowsonDVD has closed down! Not a good sign for the future of our favorite medium....

    Thank you for your work as always, Mike!

    Nothing for me this week.

    According to the sticker on the slipcase of Annihilation, Best Buy's 4K exclusive is until October 29 so I assume the 4K will be available at other stores shortly after that (if not on October 30).

    I missed Annihilation in the theater so will probably do a blind buy of the 4K this afternoon. That's it for me this week,

    I'm still curious as to why Annihilation would sign a 4K exclusive with BB until essentially November. Did they just not anticipate it would sell at all, and so better to take the money offered by BB? Again for catalog titles I understand (even if I don't approve of them). But for a new release, I find it puzzling.

    I saw Paddington 2 blu-ray at Walmart tonight for $14.96. Just make sure you're getting the regular/standard edition. They also have some kind of special edition with a Walmart exclusive bonus item. That one will ring up at $28.

    I guess a Walmart trip is in my future. The kids keep asking me about getting this one and I’ve been waiting for a bit of a price drop.

    And Amazon has already price-dropped to $16.45. I'd call Amazon and ask for an adjustment. They don't HAVE to, but a reasonable rep should.

    Same thing with Odds Against Tomorrow. I'll have both of these titles tomorrow at that price point.

    Amazon automatically issued a refund for Cold Turkey to me

    :thumbsup:

    Oh good. Maybe the adjustment happened before pre-order status ended?

    Robert Crawford posted the news about 10:48 the night of the 29th. So it just snuck in under the wire
