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!

There's a HUGE release this week...otherwise kinda quiet. Low volume, but maybe a fave of yours is out this week.

Safe shopping! And thanks for any "likes" of the OP this week. :thumbsup:

Oh. I had a few more pix leftover of Scarlett from The Love Song of Bobby Long...

If Mr. Deeds Goes To Town is this week's big release, why no good deals/steelbook packaging/bonus features?

It's a reissue, Eric.

There was a digibook upon its initial release last October.

That's the only reason it wasn't highlighted as a "Feature" this week.

Thanks for your work, Mike!

Nothing for me this week. After spending close to $50 last week, I'm going to take a breather and can wait for a price drop on Rogue One later in the year. I'll probably end up with it eventually for the sake of the collection, but I really wasn't as enamored with it as I was with The Force Awakens last year and don't feel the need to own it right away. Felecity Jones' other movie that came out last week was much better.

Thanks Mike, I've been anticipating this RoundUp all week! Still haven't decided whether I'm going to with the regular release from Best Buy or the Target exclusive for Rogue One.

I'd definitely like to upgrade Finding Forrester to Blu-Ray, but not for more than $10.

Oh. I had a few more pix leftover of Scarlett from The Love Song of Bobby Long...
I got all excited when I saw it in the featured section, thinking that perhaps THIS is the week that it would finally make its way to Blu.

You beat me to press by a few hours, Mike, but otherwise I'd have had the review for Paterson that you could have linked. It's up now and is here.

Thanks for the RoundUp as always!

Likely Rogue One later in the week...and depending on the Disney "starting at" price for Moana, Moana.

It's odd that there are so many releases from Mill Creek this week. Mill Creek was once a vendor of public domain films. However I noticed that they were of good quality. Their budget release of Victory At Sea has better PQ than the more expensive set from A&E - what's that all about?

This note says they have the distribution rights to 900 Sony films.

So, you're gonna wait, Sam?!?

Do we know that Disney is even planning a 4k release?
I am waiting, too. Disney will eventually jump on the 4K bandwagon, and I am not going to double dip. The friend I loan films back and forth with will probably buy this (his son is a huge Star Wars fan), so I can always borrow it from him if I want to watch it in the meantime.

I'll pick up Ride The High Country once the price drops.
