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!

  1. Just the Dr. Who DVD for me.That release concludes the "Classic Who" DVD sets and the old ones are rapidly going OOP ….(Example: "City of Death" already going for in excess of $100 on eBay …)

  2. Yeah….I'm not sure what's up with those BB exclusive Blu-rays.

    You'd think they'd be in the flyer…but the "new release" lists I check swear they are new BB exclusives this week.  Yet not a peep in the Sunday flyer.  Go figure.

    Thanks in advance everyone for any "likes" I get on the OP.

    Definitely some eclectic titles released this week…

  3. Yeah….I'm not sure what's up with those BB exclusive Blu-rays.

    You'd think they'd be in the flyer…but the "new release" lists I check swear they are new BB exclusives this week.  Yet not a peep in the Sunday flyer.  Go figure.Yeah, the fact that they aren't in the ad makes me think that they won't be available at most stores. I had drive about 25 miles to another BB to get Munich when it was a BB-exclusive because none of the half a dozen stores closer to me carried it. It'd be one thing if they got one or two copies and sold out but they had zero in most stores. Why pay to have an exclusive and then not carry it in most of your stores?

    Honestly, I may just wait and see what titles that Scream Factory announces at San Diego Comic Con in July because even with a movie-only disc available, I could still see them releasing The 'Burbs.

  4. I should have my review of Manhunter up very soon. If you're on the fence, I'd say go ahead and buy it – the theatrical cut looks and sounds great with some nice newly recorded interviews with the four surviving leads. Disc two ports over all of the bonus features from the old Anchor Bay DVD releases.

  5. Thanks, Mike, for including the link for The Sum of Us. I have also reviewed The Finest Hours already, and that review can be found here.

    Nothing else on the review front from the list for me this week, but there are some interesting releases in general. Thanks for the RoundUp.

  6. Huh.  Thanks, Matt.  I saw your review and thought I had added the link to the draft of the RoundUp…but I must've screwed it up somehow.

    It has now been added to the OP!  :thumbsup:

    I've never heard of Risen…but it sure sounds like an interesting film.  I'm guessing the audio track on The Finest Hours s going to be worth the cost of the disc…so I'll be in for that eventually.  From Matt's review:

    Audio: 5/5

    The DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 sound mix offers an enveloping environment throughout all of the sea sequences with howling winds, lashing waves, and pelting rain offering atmospheric details that put the listener into the middle of the action.

    – See more at: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/finest-hours-blu-ray-review/#sthash.dAf2vFrw.dpuf

    And I am really curious about that Dock Ellis "dockumentary."  Sounds intriguing…but, again, I don't know much of anything about it.

    Another Dolby Atmos film I viewed in a movie theater that doesn't have a Dolby Atmos sound track.  I might buy the disc, but when it's discounted a lot more than it is now.

  8. I supported Lobster Film's Kickstarter for the Buster Keaton restorations, so waiting anxiously for the Kino Blu-ray from them. A little disappointed that I haven't already received it.

    Manhunter (Collector's Edition) – great to hear they are porting all the extras from the Anchor Bay DVD releases so I can retire them

    The Chase

    The King and Four Queens

    The Private Affairs of Bel Ami

    Plus an odd assortment of older titles that either Amazon has reduced prices on or some members on this obscure website called hometheaterforum raved about and got me to spend my hard-earned money:

    • The Fugitive Complete Series
    • Little House on the Prairie Season 1 Remastered Blu-ray
    • Schindler's List Blu-ray
    • The Honeymooners Classic 39 Blu-ray
    • Super Friends (an assortment of DVDs each under 10 bucks)
  9. Best Buy has expanded the spend $50 get a free $10 gift card to include movies.

    Hey, Scott!

    Another goof on my part this week.  I meant to specifically point that out and somehow let it get by me.  I have fixed the OP.  Thanks!

  10. If I had only known there was some significance to this Dr. Who…Doctor Who disc, I might've featured it this week. 

    But I'm clueless (in fact I have to work to remember NOT to abbreviate "Doctor" when posting those titles.  In fact, I remember, early on, asking what is this "Doctor Who" that keeps showing up on the new release list.  I had no idea. 

    I've had a few of those over the years.  (And to everyone's credit, there have been very few instances where I've been made fun of for not knowing!  😀  )

    I had no idea what "DeGrassi High" was.  Nor "What Not to Wear" (I actually became a fan of that show).  I also had never heard of Tyler Perry until his stuff started showing up on the RoundUp. 

    I'm sure there are others, too, but I'm just not thinking of them at the (senior) moment.

  11. Best Buy has expanded the spend $50 get a free $10 gift card to include movies.

    I took advantage of this yesterday. As per usual, the blue shirt had no clue about the deal until the register prompted him to swipe a gift card (he had no GC's at his register and had to go looking for one). He kind of paused, squinted at the screen, and said, "It looks like something you bought triggered a gift card bonus." I explained that they were running a promo that awarded a $10 GC for any $50 purchase of movies or TV.

    But at least this deal was working properly in the computer and forced the associate to authorize the gift card before the transaction could be completed, rather than me having to go stand in line at the service desk to try and get them to honor their own advertised promotion. Small steps! 😀

    Yeah the clerk that rang me up was surprised as well. It wouldn't let hi9m proceed until he activated the gift card.

    FYI the Target exclusive packaging for Zoolander 2 is a slipcover that is basically the same as the other cover but has some  "splatters" on it Extras appear to be on a separate disc
