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. Although I rarely buy much these days, I always check out the WRU.  I remember the "old days" when I would wait until 11pm Central Time to see the new post go up.  Times have changed!

  2. Happy bargain-hunting everyone!

    Lots of interesting releases this week.

    And…we've got the return of published Best Buy flyers!  🙄  Guess the Earth Day celebration only goes so far!

    Thanks in advance for the likes of the OP!  Youse guys is de best!  :rock:

  3. Thanks, Mike! Just the second season of the "The Last Ship" on Blu-Ray for me this week.

    Might bite on Virginia Wolf after reading all the positive comments.

    I'm sorely tempted, because I love the movie, but it's one I have to be in the mood for so I'm not sure it'll get enough watches to justify the $22. Do Warner Archive titles ever drop in price?

  4. I'm sorely tempted, because I love the movie, but it's one I have to be in the mood for so I'm not sure it'll get enough watches to justify the $22. Do Warner Archive titles ever drop in price?

    Yes, they do Adam.  Usually around the actual release date or soon after they'll drop to $17.99 or $16.99.  I've seen them even lower after they've been out awhile.  It just takes patience.   I usually do a search for "Warner Archive Blu Ray" on Amazon and it'll bring up all titles and I pick up the ones that have dropped that weren't worth full price for me.

  5. Thanks for your work, Mike, but nothing for me this week.  I didn't know Virginia Woolf was coming out this week, but have been spending a lot lately, so I will wait for that one for a bit.  I liked Joy in theaters, but didn't love it as much as Rusell's previous films and don't really feel the need to own it.

  6. Thanks, Mike!

    Eventually I'll get the Blus for Virginia Woolf and Steele Justice, but neither is an immediate must-have.

    I'm also tempted by the Blu for the Complete Airwolf. While it's not among the shows I've been eager to see released, I'd be interested. But first I want to read some reviews. DVDs from Mill Creek are usually best avoided because they cram so many episodes onto each disc. However, maybe there will be a better outcome with a Blu-ray release..

  7. ID4 is down to under $10 on amazon.

    Hmmmmm. I was actually considering ordering the 4K version of ID4 to future proof myself, but for under 10 bucks, seems like a no brainier to order it now. It's not like it's a good enough movie that it's essential to have it in 4K if/when I make the leap.
