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

 

–Another week of Twilight Time releases.  And it’s an intriguing list of catalog titles.  They can only be pre-ordered HERE and HERE.

–And another region-free release from Powerhouse Films in the UK.  Pre-order HERE.

–Don’t go into shock.  But it’s another week with no printed Sunday ad (that I can find) from Best Buy.

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

–Target this week has the following Blu-ray releases listed for sale:

$22.99:  Black Panther, Star Wars: The Last Jedi

  1. Thanks, as always, Mike for all your hard work on the RoundUps!
    I spent too much on the Kino sale, need to hold off before I buy a few of those.

    I also want to see some reviews on those Twilight Time titles (I'm looking straight at you, Matt!)

  2. Sam Posten

    Bought all the 4ks via HTF links except The Matrix. F $32 for catalog titles pricing

    Amen. That price point is freaking bonkers.

    JP set will be on the way to me. I don't much care about any reviews…I'm going to relish this set.

    As always, thank you Mike.

  3. Thank you, Mike!

    Unfortunately, nothing for me this week. I really want Wonderstruck, but I've spent a lot lately so will have to defer that for a couple weeks until next month. But it's high on my priority list just as soon as I can do it.

    I'd also strongly consider A Fantastic Woman after a price drop. It's a terrific movie, and I highly recommend seeing it, but I'm not sure if it would have as much replay value for me as some other things I'm more in a hurry to buy.

  4. Thanks guys, for all the kind words.

    I ended up pulling the trigger this week on Black Panther and the 4k Die Hard (I just couldn't help myself!).

    This week I'm interested in Red Sparrow (LOVE me some J-Law!). Plus, Peg had read something about the new PBS Little Women so I think I'll be picking that up, too.

    And, I've never seen DW Griffith's The Birth of a Nation. I probably need to do that at some time. I had somehow missed word that TT was releasing it. Think they'll sell out quick?

    Safe shopping! 😀

  5. Matt Hough

    Josh will be doing his usual sterling job with those TT reviews.

    No doubt about that! :thumbsup:

    I do like to hear from multiple sources, so I'm hoping you will put in your 1-2 line thoughts in the corresponding TT announcement thread, as I enjoy reading those.

  6. I went into BB yesterday to grab T2 and Close Encounters on 4k. Not a single copy of the second one anywhere. I know I shouldn't be shocked and I know I should just order from Amazon.

    But dang it. Is it so hard for a store to actually have something advertised in their flyer in stock? Even the Warner 3/$50 endcap was just about bare. It looked like no one had the interest in trying to restock it…

  7. I’ll be picking up Game Night. One of the funniest movies I’ve seen in years. I’m looking forward to watching it again with the wife.

    I’ll be waiting for some of those 4K releases to drop in price. And I plan on checking out the Biffle and Shooster set.

  8. So, randomly, I walked into BB again last night before a pedicure appointment, looking specifically for Close Encounters. At some point between Sunday morning and Monday afternoon, they discovered an entire display of the $14.99 titles. There were three copies of CE3K on the display; I grabbed one, along with T2.

    Man, it should not be this hard….

    Whaddya all mean, "there's nothing this week?" There's THIS!!!

    Hey, Mike! I've got a question.

    Are "The Misadventures of B&S" the same as "The Adventures of B&S?"

    Congrats on the release! Good luck!

  10. I guess bestbuy had very little intention on selling copies of that 4K Jurassic Park set, both of them.

    The regular set wasn’t even in store and the steel set sold out within a day.

    So I went to Walmart today and picked on off the shelf for a few cents less and bought it.

    Thanks @robertcrawford for putting the info up when amazon had the Matrix for $25.

  11. For anyone who might be interested…Seasons 2 and 3 of Mr. Robot are currently on sale at Amazon for $14.99 apiece.

    Season 3 dropped a few days ago. Season 2 dropped today.

    I'm hoping Season 1 follows suit sometime soon (it is currently at $26.62). I jumped on seasons 2 & 3 as my son promises me this is one of the best shows ever. 😀 I haven't seen any of it.

  12. Mike Frezon

    I jumped on seasons 2 & 3 as my son promises me this is one of the best shows ever. 😀

    Was it April 1 when he said this? :blink:

    I watched most of Season 1 when it was broadcast, but lost interest toward the end. I haven't watched any of it since. I'd sample it on Amazon before you spend too much $$$.

  13. Mike Frezon

    For anyone who might be interested…Seasons 2 and 3 of Mr. Robot are currently on sale at Amazon for $14.99 apiece.

    Season 3 dropped a few days ago. Season 2 dropped today.

    I'm hoping Season 1 follows suit sometime soon (it is currently at $26.62). I jumped on seasons 2 & 3 as my son promises me this is one of the best shows ever. 😀 I haven't seen any of it.

    I LOVE Mr. Robot (fantastic performances, twists and turns, no TV show has better camera work) but I will say that it is not an upbeat show. The second season is the weakest of the three years but the third season gets right back to the top of its game.

  14. Mike Frezon

    Hey, Mike! I've got a question.

    Are "The Misadventures of B&S" the same as "The Adventures of B&S?"

    Congrats on the release! Good luck!

    No. "Adventures" is the feature compilation version, consisting of four shorts and a few bonus bits; it was created for theatrical, streaming and television. "Misadventures" is the DVD and contains everything.

    Thanks!
    Mike S.
