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!

    I'm all about the Gilmore Girls release.

    Me too. I've had it preordered since you posted about the price drop on the revival thread in the TV forum. So thank you for that! (Along with all of the hard work that goes into these posts every single week.)

    But that's it for me this week.

    Again, me too. And after the last couple days, thank goodness for that!

  2. Thanks for the Round-Up Mike …

    For those who are into Lenticular covers most of the Target Xmas "special" blurays (and DVDs) have Lenticular slipcases …
    Mike.. The two Amazon links for Operation Petticoat and Father Goose lead to the older Olive releases … the new new "Signature" ones don't have any pricing … apparently 🙂

  3. Thanks, Mike — hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.

    Nothing for me this week. I spent enough over the holiday on a few UHD titles for myself, plus Christmas gifts. Besides, the only title that mildly interests me is The Woman in Red, and the film didn't hold up as well as I remember the last time I watched my DVD copy of the film.

  4. Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

    Universal has been good about sending UHD review copies lately, so I'm not quite sure why they went only the Blu-ray for Logan Lucky. Anyway, thanks for linking it.

    I do hope to buy Father Goose and I think I've only got Misery on DVD, so I need to get that in high definition if I've only got the DVD. I'll be checking on that as soon as I post this.

    Already got Despicable Me 3 in 3D shipped from the UK, since it came out early over there and I heard the US release was cancelled (Despicable if true!)

    Apparently so. I got the Spanish Steelbook several weeks ago. Very nice set.

  6. *raises hand*

    OK,Mike's not the only one.

    I've never seen Silence of the Lambs either.

    Of course, I don't watch any horror films in general because I hate being scared, and can't handle jump scares, so I've been avoiding it deliberately.

    I'm sure it's great — just not for me.

    Not a horror film by any means.

    More of a psychological thriller.

    You’re missing out. It’s tremendous.

  8. It's not "jump scare" scary, though, is it?

    I always figured it was more of a psychological thriller.

    Peg will just be mad at me just for having the film inside the house. I had to wait until she was completely out of the house–staying at our daughter's for a night or two (helping out after the birth of a granddaughter) in order that I could see what the Hostel films were about. I watched the first in the series. Yikes! I'm glad I've seen it…but that's not the kind of film for me.

    EDIT: I crossed posts with Tino.

  9. Mike Frezon

    Peg will just be mad at me just for having the film inside the house.

    Don't you collect Best Picture winners? On that basis alone it would have to be in your collection.

    Also, it's not just jump scares (although I have a particularly bad reflex reaction to those.) Even if there aren't jump scares, I just don't like being scared, period, and would not find such a thing entertaining. I am sure there are many great titles in the horror genre that I'm missing, but I'm okay with that.

  10. So much of The Silence Of The Lambs has been 'stolen' by other TV shows and movies over the years that I'm curious as to how it will play for someone who has never seen it. It has influenced everything from The X-Files to 90's/early 00's serial killer movies to all those violent crime shows on CBS and I think that may have watered down its impact a little bit.

  11. It's not something I consciously set out to do…but I probably do have every BP winner that's ever been put on disc.

    But none of that matters to Peg. She just doesn't like scary things.

    Probably the scariest film I've ever watched with her is Sleeping With the Enemy with Julia Roberts. And that was a long time ago.

  12. Well, you don't have every BP winner without Silence of the Lambs, which you've now ordered.

    I'm not married, so maybe I don't get it, but surely it can sit on the shelf without bothering her? She doesn't need to watch it.

  13. 1.) Jake: I never said I didn't have Silence of the Lambs already on the shelf. I just said I hadn't ever watched it. 🙄 I've got LOTS on my shelf I haven't watched. This will be an upgrade of an unwatched disc.

    2.) Yes, you have a lot to learn about women! It isn't very hard at all for something to sit on my shelf and still "bother" her! :laugh:

    Seriously, though, no she'll never watch it (and I've got a copy on my shelf already–along with other scary films like Halloween and The Sixth Sense, for examples). So we're fine.

    But this is a unique thing for me to deal with. Peg just doesn't like anything that's scary or even with blood and gore. She's a big musical fan. Loves Sondheim. But won't watch the film of Sweeney Todd. And she likes much of the music from it. She doesn't like action films, chase sequences, etc. either.

  14. Well, if the film is already in your house on your shelf, then she can't be too upset with you for getting the upgraded one.

    Why upgrade an unwatched disc, though, especially at Criterion prices? Are you going to find time to watch the new one?

    Also, I would not qualify the film of Sweeney Todd as scary or horror at all. Like I said, I generally avoid horror, but love that film.

    $18.31 is a really good price for a new Criterion title.

    That's not being averse to watching scary films — that's just good taste. 😆 And this is coming from a Tim Burton fan.

    It's funny how we all perceive films differently. I never considered The Sixth Sense scary at all, and once you figure out the film's "secret", it's just not that interesting, IMO. It certainly held zero re-watch value for me.

  17. Oh. Well, I haven't watched The Sixth Sense either.

    But much like with Silence of the Lambs, I basically know the entire premise.

    Why upgrade an unwatched disc, though, especially at Criterion prices? Are you going to find time to watch the new one?

    Most times I wouldn't, but as Robert says:

    $18.31 is a really good price for a new Criterion title.

    And when I do watch the film, I might as well see it in what is likely going to be a great presentation.

    It's just one of the seamy parts of this insidious hobby! :mellow:

  18. Mike Frezon

    It's just one of the seamy parts of this insidious hobby! :mellow:

    Insidious, that's another good scary movie (I love 'em). 😀

    Funny that some see Silence of the Lambs as horror. I've never considered it that way.

  19. Jake Lipson

    I'm sure it's great — just not for me.

    I fully understand that and I basically feel the same way. That said I have watched some of the classics, notorious ones, and ones that people have recommended highly. I don't often enjoy the experience, however. So I'm not trying to convince you to see it in any way. I respect that you don't watch them and don't like being scared. And I get it.

    I do really like Silence though. Yes, it is disturbing at times and there are scary moments, but dang is it good. I'll be picking it up eventually.

    Funny that some see Silence of the Lambs as horror. I've never considered it that way.

    I always considered it a psychological crime film. Not too graphic except for that one sequence. The acting from Hopkins and Foster is some of the best acting captured on film.
