    Helloooooo RoundUppers!

    Safe shopping this week! LOTS and LOTS of NEW RELEASES. Don't get hurt out there.

    I could find no Best Buy flyer...so we're flying blind on Best Buy until their online ad goes live.

    Thanks each and every week for all the "likes.'

    Youse guys is the best.

    I'm assuming that I'll be getting Captain Underpants to review, but Fox usually sends an e-mail alerting me of its imminent arrival, and I have received no such e-mail for it. We'll have to wait and see.

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike! And thanks for including the review links. Much appreciated!

    Not like I'm complaining but what's the deal with Silicon Valley and Veep being a reasonable price? Has HBO turned a corner in terms of their pricing or are they just lowering the price because they don't sell great in the current market?

    Anyway, I'll pick them up and maybe Orphan Black.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    Just a reminder that there are two different 4K/UHD releases of E.T. One is the more expensive 35th anniversary limited edition with a MSRP of $49.98 and the other is $10.00 less on the MSRP. Somewhat confusing to say the least.

    Thanks, Mike!

    With next season being their last, I'm waiting for the inevitable VEEP complete series on BD set. High re-watch value for this show.

    Kudos to TT for another great month of releases. Even when a particular title doesn't interest me I know it'll be a first rate release that will please fans of that film.

    Thank you Crawdaddy!
    I checked and I had selected the incorrect item during pre-ordering, so had to cancel and buy the right one. I really appreciate the heads up!

    Tobor the Great: one of those 1950s films where all the guys wear hats.

    Dennis Schwartz commenting on Krakatoa, East of Java: "The title was changed to Volcano after many filmgoers with a sense of geography pointed out that Krakatoa is west of Java. "

    I may finally add Logan to the collection. That's a reasonable price at Target. Otherwise, I see nothing else catching me eye.

    Thanks Mike!

    The Walmart 4K edition of The Mummy has some kind of virtual reality viewer with "30 minutes of exclusive content". Not sure what that's all about. My store also had a big cardboard display for the film. Haven't seen that for a video release in quite a while.

    I've never figured out why Walmart sells 4K discs, but seemingly does not sell a 4K player in stores. They have a player that will do "4K upscaling," but I've yet to see an actual 4K player. Are the player prices still high enough they assume no Walmart shoppers would buy them?

    Interesting. I've checked a couple of nearby stores and haven't found any.
