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

–Best Buy, this week, continues its Easter tradition of not having a print ad in the Sunday papers. It is, after all, one of the great holiday traditions. Right up there with eggnog, bobbing for apples and weather predictions by groundhogs.

–The one thing I looked up was that Best Buy has an EXCLUSIVE STEELBOOK RELEASE of The Hateful Eight this week–for which you will pay a premium of $5 over the cost of the regular Blu release ($24.99).  See it HERE.

–While I was at bb.com, I looked up a couple other prices, too.
–Best Buy Odds and Ends: None to report.
–Target this week has EXCLUSIVE BONUS CONTENT with its Blu copies of The Hateful Eight. Over 25 minutes of bonus content: “The Hateful Eight—An Inside Look at Quentin Tarantino’s 8th film.” Plus, LENTICULAR collectable packaging.
–Target is also advertising The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 2 for $22.99 Blu/$17.99 DVD.
–Target Odds and Ends: None to report.

After an expensive recent run, nothing for me this week, thank goodness.

Thanks as always, Mike! I hope you have a happy Easter as well!

Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

I reviewed a couple of weeks ago Murders in the Rue Morgue/The Dunwich Horror here.

All I meant by that, Malcolm, is that I checked out the H8 steel book and while I was at bb.com I looked up their prices on this week's high profile new releases ( which I put in the grid).

Thanks for your work, Mike. It's funny -- for Django Unchained three years ago, Target had a steelbook and Best Buy had lenecular packaging, and this time it's reversed. I'm not happy about BB's recent trend of up charging for these exclusives of theirs, but because I got the steel for Django, I want Hateful in that form also to go along with it, so I swallowed hard and pre-ordered it at $24.99+tax in order to ensure I get one -- but I wouldn't do that for every movie, or even most, but this one is a special case (and perhaps so is Star Wars next week; I haven't decided on that one yet.) Fortunately, Hateful Eight is it for me this week.

Ah, I get it. I'd forgot you were working without a flyer.

Hateful Eight would have been a definate purchase, but they didn't include the roadshow cut so no sale from me. Pity as I did like the movie.

Not a thing on this end. I have literally purchased three titles this year: Good Dinosaur, Batman: Bad Blood and Arrow S3. I don't know if this says something about me personally or how many titles I have on the shelf right now.

Anyway, next release on my calendar is some low budget space opera I doubt anyone has heard of...

Thanks Mike!

I would love to have the roadshow cut, but I don't see the point in denying myself the movie, which I really loved, when we don't know when or if the roadshow cut will surface later.

I am skipping Target's bonus "content" because it does not say that that is actually on a disc.

There was originally announced an expensive boxset out of France with the Roadshow180+ min cut, but apparently information this week says that was incorrect and the 80EUR boxset
with LP, Books, etc was just going to be the same version everyone else had. massive numbers of cancellations followed so maybe that will tell the studios something by itself.

Unfortunately it may not be the studio that needs convincing. It's been heavily speculated, though unconfirmed (as far as I know), that the decision to withhold the Roadshow cut comes from QT himself. If true it seems pretty selfish to me especially since only a very few got to see it and that it will almost certainly never be seen again inside a theater considering how logistically difficult it was to bring the roadshow version to theaters in the first place coupled with the fact the the movie generally underperformed financially.

I wouldn't discourage anyone from picking up the movie as it will exist on Blu-Ray although if it's true that the French version suffered mass cancellations once it was determined it would only include the general release versions, I'm kind of happy for that,

The entire deal of what is Hateful 8 is annoying to me.

The movie was just okay.
I'm glad I saw the roadshow version projected by a real projector but
I felt that Tarantino wasted the use of the camera by making nearly the entire movie in a cabin.

And now refusing to put the rs version on disc.

I can wait.

Where did you hear this? I understand it's a rumor, but I'd still be interested in knowing where it came from.

I suppose it makes sense, since the roadshow version was specifically designed for 70mm projection, and of course Blu-ray can't be 70mm projected. But if this is the case, then the 70mm version will be lost forever essentially, because the chances of a re-release in theaters is slim to none, and I think slim's on vacation this week.

Also, there is a certain amount of irony in releasing the disc with a making-of featurette that extolls the virtues of filming on 70mm without actually featuring the cut of the film to which that featurette pertains.
