    Hellloooooooo RoundUppers!

    Couldn't score a Best Buy ad today. Maybe it's one of those weeks where BB is playing "hard to get?"

    4k Kong: Skull Island is on its way to me this week.

    With all I'm spending at the B&N Criterion sale, it's just Blood Alley for me.
    I will be getting Tom Sawyer/Huckleberry Finn and The Crimson Kimono in the near future.

    Skull Island will be a Redbox watch for me, maybe next weekend. I keep hearing decent things about it, so why not?

    Nothing for me this week. King Kong is a fun rental for folks who haven't seen it though.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    I forgot about Tom Sawyer.

    I might pick it up down the road if Twilight Time ever puts it up on sale. I'm a BIG Sherman Brothers fan...but it would basically be a blind buy for me. I watched it when it first aired...but remember very little about it except that Jonathan Whittaker is in it. I remember thinking back then that I was surprised to see him in something other than Family Affair.

    Thanks for the Round-Up Mike

    I pre-ordered the four new Twilight Time films through SAE ($ saved $5 each) so I'm guessing the box will come to work sometime week after next ...

    Eventually I may get the 17th reboot of King Kong but prolly not this month, as Amazon is underpicing B&N sale prices on some Criterion titles sometimes and I have a few more titles I would like like to buy ...

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

    I did have a couple of reviews posted already for this week's releases: The Promise Blu-ray review can be found here. The DVD review for The Untouchables: The Scarface Mob can be found here.

    I'm waiting for my three Twilight Time titles to arrive, and I put in for Grantchester, too, though I don't expect I'll get it.

    Ouch! And I looked, too, Matt.

    Sorry. But I've added those links to the WRU article. Thanks for letting me know!

    Yeah, BUT this version has both 3D and 4K and as far as I can tell it's the only way to get both the 3D and 4K in one package. And 35 is a lot to pay but I may bite the bullet since I want the 3D and the $5 future proofing seems worth it

    It appears that there are several format versions of Kong out there. I was going to purchase the Amazon 3D version for $29.95, but it got raised to $37.61 on release day and it was 3D and Bluray only! Then I investigated Best Buy and saw that I could get both 3D and 4K for $35, which is cheaper than Amazon's price for 3D and Bluray only. Looked at Target, and it has 4k and Bluray only. So we have 1) 3D/Bluray; 2) 4k/Bluray; 3) 4K/3D Bluray/Bluray; 4) Bluray/DVD and 5) DVD. I too, opted for the Best Buy 4K/3D Bluray which is also a steelbook. I really wish things were simpler.
