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!

 

 

The Specials

–LAST week was another week of Twilight Time releases.  Somehow I had them scheduled for this week.  So, I left them listed in this week’s grid in case anyone missed that discussion.  Those titles can only be ordered HERE and HERE.

–It’s kinda interesting that, this week, there is no Blu-ray release of Dynasties (BBC)—just a DVD and 4k/UHD release (which includes a Blu copy).

–Best Buy, again this week, has NO Sunday flyer in my local paper.

–Best Buy’s Weekly Ad is available at THIS LINK.

–Target this week has an EXCLUSIVE GALLERY BOOK with its 4k/UHD copies of Ralph Wrecks the Internet.  There will be a $3 upcharge if you want the gallery book.  The price is $32.99.  The standard 4k/UHD release at Target is $29.99.

–Target is also advertising an EXCLUSIVE GALLERY BOOK with its 4k/UHD copies of The Little Mermaid.  Same deal.  The price is $32.99 which means a $3 premium above the standard $29.99 4k/UHD release.

–Target advertises these two recent Blu-ray releases:

$19.99:  Bohemian Rhapsody

$24.99:  A Star is Born (2018)

–Target’s Weekly Ad is available at THIS LINK.

Lots of interesting titles this week, RoundUppers!

I'll likely bite on The Little Mermaid on 4k/UHD. I just rewatched my Blu of TLM the other day with my granddaughters. I wonder how much better a 4k version might be? This is the film that kicked off that 2nd Disney Golden Age and it also hit as my daughter happened to turn three years old (just at the right time!).

Safe shopping!

I've got Used Cards coming and at some point, I'll grab The Mole People and Willard. At this point, Amazon charges so much for Shout/Scream Factory titles that I might as well buy directly from Shout so all the money goes to them instead.

Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

Thank you for your work, Mike!

I hate it when Disney does two releases in a given week because as usual they are both overpriced.

It would be really nice if some store would have had a deal to knock even $5 off the combined purchase of both Ralph Breaks the Internet and The Little Mermaid.

But I'll probably still get both.

And I'll get the Damages complete series Blu-ray at some point. I love that show and would have continued to buy Blu-rays of seasons 2-5 if Sony hadn't discontinued Blu-rays after season 1. But since I have all the subsequent seasons on DVD, it's not a huge priority upgrade.

No Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier on 4K Blu-ray? I believe there are being released on Tuesday the 26th also.

My order from Best Buy arrived today and I watched the 4K/UHD releases of "The Little Mermaid" and "Captain America: The First Avenger". Both releases are officially released on Tuesday so Best Buy shipped early.

Only "Captain America: The First Avenger" 4K/UHD is being released this Tuesday. Disney/Marvel will be releasing other 4K/UHD releases for Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man in the coming months.

Thanks once again for the Round-Up Mike

To Sleep with Anger is "on it's way" courtesy of the Target buy3get1free sale ...

For those who have not picked up Stranger Things on Disc Target has 50% any flavor of Season 1 or Season 2 via their Cartwheel program

Given that Captain America: The First Avenger was shot using Panavision Genesis cameras at 1080p, a 4K/UHD release seems entirely pointless. Whatever "benefits" there are over the Blu-ray would seem to be entirely artificial and created after the fact.

It still looked great on my OLED. It's not like watching the latest Avengers film on 4K/UHD, but I didn't expect it to. At first listening, I thought the Dolby Atmos soundtrack was awesome. I might do some comparisons to my 3-D disc.

I was at Target today and saw some of the MCU catalog Blu-rays marked at $24.99 a pop. There are some that I haven't bought before that I would like to eventually add to my collection but even those are too high for me. I'm not sure I want to know how much they would be charging for 4K versions.

This info above from IMDb is a bit confusing regarding how the film was shot. Sounds like it was shot with a few different cameras.

Thanks for the ROundUp, Mike.

Ralph Breaks the Internet will eventually be mine, but I think I'll wait awhile. I've been spending an awful lot for product in the last three weeks, so I need to slow it down a little.

I'll throw a heads up here as well -- Criterion.com Flash Sale most commonly happens around the end of February. Criterion virtually never lets anyone know when it's coming more than a day or two ahead and sometimes not even until the morning of the sale.

With the last Feb release this Tuesday, no releases scheduled the next week, AND the Bergman Collection back in stock there seems to be a pretty good chance it will happen this week. EVERY Q1 sale has started on Tuesday around Noon ET so I'd be watching closely for those that wait for the 2 days a year.

Teh My Criterion part of the site has been down for almost a year now and the Wishlist down for the last couple weeks. If the Wishlist suddenly gets fixed tomorrow or Tuesday morning then I'd take that as a sign.
The other common giveaway is when the site moves items in the cart from "Ships next business Day" to "Ships in 2-3 Days" -- this often seems to happen 4-24 hours before the sale starts

I've got The Little Mermaid Best Buy Steelbook, and ClassicFlix Stand-In pre-ordered. The other few items I want will have to wait for a price drop.

Double head fake, I bit on the slant and got beat deep -- nothing happening on Criterion's website nor any of their Media pages. Looks
like a false alarm at least for this week. 2015 the Q1 sale was 3/10 so it's still likely pending rather than not happening and they could also break their Tuesday pattern as well.
