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'll pick up Manchester By The Sea this week. At some point, I'll get Nocturnal Animals and Mildred Pierce.

    Hacksaw Ridge is well worth a rental for those that haven't seen it yet.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! 🙂

  2. There are still a couple of titles on this week's list I've put in to review, but no review copies have emerged (as yet). I already have two releases for the last week in February which I'll start on tomorrow if nothing from this month's previous releases don't arrive. (I have weekend house guests or I'd start on them this afternoon.)

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

  3. Criterions will be on the shopping list during the presumed Criterion.com Flash sale in the next week or two (best guess 2/28 or 3/7). I would probably have gotten them through the B2G1 target sale except I have a significant amt on Criterion GC and finally made it to my $50 Rewards Cert during their Double Points deal after Christmas.

  4. Thanks Mike! There's a few things on the list this week I want to see, but not own. I'll end up Redboxing them on a night Andrey is working…he'll have no interest in these titles (Hacksaw Ridge, Nocturnal Animals, Manchester by the Sea). 🙂

    I may check out BB's B2G1 sale; I looked at Target's yesterday and nothing really caught my eye. Then again, I was looking at the $5 and $10 racks, so… 😉

  5. I'm a bit later than usual in checking in this week, but thanks for your work as always, Mike.

    Nocturnal Animals is one hell of a movie, and I really want it, but there's so much else coming out lately (not to mention I still haven't been able to pick up Arrival from last week yet) that I might wait for a price drop on it later in the year. The fact that it is almost barebones supports the idea of waiting on it. That being said, I would certainly encourage a rental for anybody who missed it in the theaters. It's great.

    Although I recognize I am in the extreme minority on this, I vehemently hated Manchester by the Sea in theaters. The acclaim for that film, and its Best Picture nomination, completely escapes me. I found it ridiculously overlong, poorly edited and severely uninteresting to watch, focusing on unsympathetic characters who I had no reason to like or invest in. So, I'll be skipping that and wouldn't recommend it to others either.

    It's funny but for me it was the total opposite in that I did feel for the characters in Manchester by the Sea (they seemed like real people) and I felt nothing for the characters in Nocturnal Animals (they seemed like poses more than people and they were basically all clowns and jerks). However, I did enjoy both films. I'd love to hear what you loved about Nocturnal Animals, Jake, as it is a film I really want to discuss with people and what you felt about certain aspects of the film.

    I have been trying to generate a discussion in the review thread for the film posted by Matt Hough here but so far it seems that few people here have seen it and so not much is being said about it.

  7. Jake Lipson

    Well, I don't really want to derail the Roundup thread, but, briefly:

    Spoiler

    First, thank you for taking the time to reply and giving your thoughts. Nocturnal Animals is a film I have really wanted to discuss so I am very grateful you gave some thoughts on it. So, if this discussion continues feel free to post further comments in the Nocturnal Animals review thread and I would love to continue to talk about it if you are interested.

    So, in response to your comments above:

    Spoiler: SPOILER

    So, there are some thoughts to start and if you want to dive deeper in for fun I'm game.

  8. It may be a little late, but I discovered Target has a 15% Cartwheel coupon for the DVD, Blu-ray, and UHD versions of Hacksaw Ridge. It was out when I tried to rent it last night so I ended up buying it at Target on UHD. With the 15% of $26.99 plus the 5% Red Card discount, it wasn't too bad.

    On a side note, it was a blind buy for me and we thought it was fantastic. The presentation on UHD is also very good and it's the first UHD disc I've watched with special features on the UHD copy of the movie.
