    Ya know...I was reminded over in the "HD Bargains" thread that I meant to post the following in this week's Round-Up: Amazon has a number of these themed 3-packs of Blu-ray discs that people might want to check out. they're not "great" deals, but definitely "not bad" deals.

    One of them, for example, is a "War" bundle of Patton, Sand Pebbles & Longest Day for $65. There are also comedy, action, drama bundles, etc. They're not easy to find. I cannot find a page where they are all grouped together. There is a second "War" bundle for $60: Battle of Britain, Bridge Too Far & Flyboys.

    But these bundles would be a great way to add Blu-ray titles to one's collection...especially if just getting started.

    While "Disco Pigs" may not be at the top of the most-wanted high-def film list, it is actually quite a good film starring a young Cillian Murphy.

    The original release was anamorphic widescreen. Those sites must be either copying and pasting their old review or they aren't aware it was already released.

    I picked up first season of Early Edition today. I didn't even notice that it was coming out this week until I saw it on the shelves at Borders. I hope that we will get the complete series of this show. It was one of my favorites at the time.

    Marty: Must make note to self--"Check RoundUp each week to see what kind of cool titles are coming out..." [​IMG]

    I couldn't help myself. I picked up the Men in Black BD at Target for $19.99 last night. It's a sickness. I cannot believe the double-dipping I've done in BD already...when I swore I wouldn't! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sad thing is that one of the first things I do on Sunday is check your excellent Weekly Roundup. I think this week I read it before I was completely awake last Sunday. I must make a note to self - "Check Roundup every Sunday after I have had my first cup of coffee."

    Thanks again for a great effort.
