The Disclaimer

Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. The titles included are those that I am interested in…as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don’t get paid for this, and I don’t have the time to list every DVD. So, please don’t complain! If there is a title not included in the RoundUp that you want to see, PLEASE just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone!

  1. I had no idea Little Fauss and Big Halsy was finally getting the blu-ray treatment! Perhaps my earliest memory of a naked woman on film. Any word on transfer quality?

  2. Hey RoundUppers!

    Another early RoundUp this week.  No Best Buy flyer this weekend.

    The Marx Brothers set and ID4: Resurgence for me this week.  I'm really looking forward to seeing (really, hearing) these new releases of the classic Marx Bros. films.  Matt Hough says we won't be disappointed!  :thumbsup:

  3. Thanks for your work, Mike!  Pan's Labyrinth will be on the way to me from Amazon this week. I gave the older Blu-ray edition to a friend and am looking forward to owning the Criterion.  People who own the original should note that the Criterion does not appear to include the excellent Charlie Rose interview with del Toro, Cuaron and Inuritu…but that was in SD on the Blu anyway, so I am keeping the original 2-disc DVD (which I had before the Blu-ray) to hang onto that excellent supplement.

  4. I caught it at the SIFF – Our Kind of Traitor was really, really good. Full on thumbs up!

    But man, the more I think on it, the more I'm soured on ID4. That was a not very good movie.

    by the way, if you want to save a couple of bucks on Waxwork/Waxwork II – Diabolik dvd had it for 26.

  5. You were early this week, Mike! Right before I could get the review for The Laughing Policeman posted. It's here.

    A couple of other releases should be here for review this week, and I've already gotten review copies for a couple of releases for the following week. Nice to get them early.

    Thanks for the prices!

  6. As always, thanks Mike for the RoundUp! :thumbsup:

    Good stuff this week:

    • The Laughing Policeman
    • The Marx Brothers Silver Screen Collection
    • Strategic Air Command
    • Villa Rides!

    I'm most excited about the Marx Brothers Restored Edition Blu-ray set. From all the reviews, this sounds like a winner!

  7. You were early this week, Mike! Right before I could get the review for The Laughing Policeman posted. It's here.

    Thanks, Matt!  That link has now been added top the RoundUp grid!  :thumbsup:

    And, as always, thanks to everyone for the "likes" this week!  :thumbsup:


    I gave some thought to Strategic Air Command–especially at that price–but the descriptions I've read just didn't call out to me. 

  8. First time I've bothered to pre-order a title: Marx Brothers restored.

    Have seen four of the five in theaters (in 35mm); now look forward to improved picture and sound (and a little restored footage).

    Thanks as always, Mike (for the $$-info) and Matt (for the product review)!
