I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp.

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. Hey RoundUppers!

    Although you wouldn't know it from this week's Best Buy and Target flyers, there is a ton of new releases this week.

    The Amazon/Disney "feud" continues…

    And I've got Lost Horizon (pre-ordered July 2nd!) on it's way to me. I'm interested in The Book of Henry–but NOT at $25! And, I am intrigued by both Harold & Lillian and A Woman's Life…but I think I'll keep my eye out for better prices and reviews.

    Safe shopping everyone! And thanks for the "likes" to the OP.

  2. Thanks, Mike. I have the UHD of Kick-Ass pre-ordered at that great price, and will pick up the UHDs of Bridge on the River Kwai and Bram Stoker's Dracula once the price on each drops. I would like the Arrow release of A Fish Called Wanda, but at that price I think I'll just settle for my existing BD.

  3. If I was fully 4k, I'd be picking up Kwai and KickAss on 4k, for sure.

    But I'll wait until I have my display and then pick up some of these titles. In the meantime, I've already got the Blu(e)s. But I'm still picking up the 4k releases of any new-to-me titles (if available in the format). Makes sense to me…

  4. Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike, and for the links, too.

    I'm assuming Fox will be sending American Horror Story this week. I haven't heard from them about it, but they've sent all of the others for review so I expect it to arrive at some point.

    I'll be picking up Lost Horizon for sure and Kwai at a later date. The Blu-ray is fine for now.

  5. Bigger week than expected for me. These pre-orders caught me unawares:

    • The Bridge on the River Kwai
    • A Fish Called Wanda (Special Edition)
    • Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story
    • Lost Horizon
    • Superman The Movie: Extended Cut
    • Prancer

    EDIT* I just cancelled my BOTRK order with Amazon. I see from some 4K threads here that lately Amazon has been lowering the price a week after initial release. Also, DeepDiscount has it cheaper, so if they don't lower it I can still get a better price. I can wait for this one.

  6. Thanks once again for the Round-up Mike

    I was going to order Lost Horizon and BoTRK 4K from Amazon … but checked deepdiscount and they had LH $1 cheaper and BoTRK for 4K $2 cheaper than Amazon (and no tax for me from DD) I also ordered two Kinos in the BOGO sale and when I went to check out everything was either "in Stock" or "pre-order" when I finalized my order I noticed that LH is on the dreaded "backorder' 🙁 …

    I plan to get A Fish Called Wanda and Superman: The Movie Extended cut later (Supey through Warner Archive sale?)

  7. Sam Posten

    Is there a Pirates of the Carribean 5 movie bundle that includes the latest in 4k anywhere?

    Not that I know of. There is no boxed set, as logical as that would be.

    Maybe they will issue one whenever Disney starts releasing its back catalog on 4K and put out the first four films that way? But since they're slow, who knows when that might be? They still have catalog titles they need to release on plain old Blu-ray (*cough* The Black Cauldron, A Goofy Movie *cough*), let alone 4K.

  8. Lost Horizon and Home for the Holidays are on the way. Likely Pirates 5 on UHD, even though it was kinda unsatisfying for me in the theater at some point later in the year.

    And chances are I can watch Lost Horizon this week. Yeah, that's kind of a novelty for me. I've loved this movie since I saw way back in film class in college.

  9. I'm supposed to get all of the Sony and Lionsgate 4K titles that street this week for review, but all I've received so far is Warm Bodies which should be up late on Monday (too many items on the honey-do list this weekend ;)).

  10. Jake Lipson

    I had a chat with Amazon customer service this morning, and their representative Mohd Adil said that he checked and the two orders are to be sent separately.

    It feels odd to be quoting myself, but in case anyone cares, my shipping notice came through and it says they are packaged in the same shipment….even though I specifically asked for them to go separately, so Mohd Adil was not able to do anything, because of course he wasn't. I will hope that whomever packaged it did so effectively, and that the tiny movie will be safe in the company of the 2.4-pound book. We'll see.

    Not to create worry for you but in my similar experiences, they just toss everything in the box and MAYBE they put in some of those plastic air bubble things in there to stop the items from moving around too much. For what it's worth, I don't think I've had any trouble with that but it certainly was luck more than anything else.

  12. Well, if the Blu-ray arrives damaged, I'll just send it back for a replacement copy. I was jut hoping to avoid that hassle.

    I was skeptical about even mentioning it to customer service, but thought it was worth a shot, since the worst-case scenario would be nothing happened, which is the case.

    I had also thought about possibly cancelling Ghost Story and re-ordering it today after Harry Potter had already shipped out on its own, but decided against that because of the price increase on Ghost since my pre-order locked in a cheaper rate (and Harry Potter was also cheaper than the current price, so I couldn't cancel-and-reorder that, either.)

    We'll see what happens tomorrow afternoon when the mail arrives. Nothing to do now but wait.

    I'm sure they'll ship them in one of those Tyvek bubble shippers like they did when they combined my two orders 😉 !:banana:

  14. B-ROLL

    I'm sure they'll ship them in one of those Tyvek bubble shippers like they did when they combined my two orders 😉 !:banana:

    Unbelievably, I've had that on a couple of $50 MSRP book orders before.

  15. Well, Amazon actually came through. The book and Blu-ray both arrived without incident and in good new condition, having been well-packed with lots of bubble wrap and packing material. And the book is incredibly beautiful.
