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, has EXCLUSIVE STEELBOOK PACKAGING with their Blu copies of Beauty and the Beast (2017).  There IS a pricing premium for the steelbook.  It will cost $22.99 versus the $19.99 tag on the regular Blu.  Best Buy is also selling the 1991 animated Beauty and the Beast for $19.99 om Blu this week.

–Best Buy also has EXCLUSIVE PACKAGING with its Blu copies of Bambi (re-released this week by Disney).  HOWEVER, all the ad shows is two different covers for Bambi and states “Relive a Disney Classic.  Starting at $19.99 on Blu-ray.  Available on Tuesday.”  So I wouldn’t be surprised if the Exclusive Packaging for Bambi is another extra $3 like B&tB above.

–A NICE DEAL at Best Buy this week.  “Save $5 When You Spend $25 On Movies.  Choose from 40 titles.”  The titles shown are listed at $14.99 (but BB says that price is valid only on the pictured titles).  The Hobbit:  Battle of the Five Armies 3-D, Mad Max Fury Road 3-D, Edge of Tomorrow 3-D, San Andreas 3-D.

–The following Blu-ray releases are priced at $12.99 this week at BB:  The Accountant, Live By Night, Suicide Squad, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

–The following Blu-ray releases are on sale this week at Best Buy:

$24.99:  The Godfather

$29.99:  Star Wars OT

$34.99:  Indiana Jones: Complete Adventures

$49.99:  Fast & Furious Ultimate Ride Collection (1-7)

–Best Buy is also advertising a “BUY TWO, GET ONE FREE” sale.  Choose from up to 40 titles.  Titles shown are:

$7.99:  The Lone Survivor (Blu), Inglourious Basterds (Blu)

$9.99:  Ride Along 2 (Blu), What Now-Kevin Hart (DVD)

–Best Buy Odds and Ends:  A collection of 10 “Top” Pixar Blu-ray titles for $19.99 apiece.  Titles shown are Cars, Finding Dory and Inside Out.

–Target this week has EXCLUSIVE BLU-RAY RELEASES of both Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (2017) and Bambi.  Both of those titles @ Target include EXCLUSIVE 32-page storybooks. Both are also listed at $24.99 and there is not a non-exclusive Blu release shown at a lesser price.

–Target is also advertising the following “Recent Releases” for sale:

$12.99:  Tangled: Before Ever After (DVD)

$19.99:  Logan (Blu), A Dog’s Purpose (DVD)

$22.99:  Split (Blu), Get Out (Blu)

Safe shopping, RoundUppers! Some pretty good deals around this week.

Amazon and Disney continue to dance their dance. So I'll need, again, to head to a local brick and mortar and find me a copy of B&tB. I guess it'll be Best Buy with those lousy prices at Target on both B&tB and Bambi. Zaza looks intriguing. And Stella Stevens looks pretty amazing in The Ballad of Cable Hogue (there are some mighty revealing shots from that bath scene floating around the internet. Scandalous!).

Other than that..it's a quiet week for me. But that's good since I'm going to be "region free" soon and have already placed some orders from Amazon.uk!

Thanks for the Round-Up again Mike

I picked up Fahrenheit 451 at Wal*Mart earlier and Zasa does sound like a buy down the road. B&TB(2017) maybe at a much lower price

Thanks for your work, Mike.

For a move that recently crossed $500 million domestic and is sure to be a huge seller, Target's price on Beauty and the Beast is outrageous. I'll be getting it from Best Buy.

The steelbook looks absolutely beautiful, so I might pay the extra for it if I can get it. The website won't let me pre-order one for shipping, and I have what seems to be the only Best Buy in the world that does not cooperate with marking items from the website for in-store pickup, so I guess I'll get the steel depending on whether they have enough to stay in stock throughout the day, as I know I won't be able to go in at 10am when they open. If the steel is out of stock, I'll go with the regular one, which fortunately looks nice too. (Last time I went for a Disney steelbook, on Moana, the steelbook art was far superior to the blah art on the regular edition.)

And, I would get Bambi too, but I already have the Diamond Edition and don't see a compelling value add to require double dip. But the transfer looks terrific, so anybody who missed out on it last time shouldn't hesitate at all about getting it.

Mike.

Bourne Ultimate Collection $19.99 at BB?? Is that right???
I think that's a typo by Mike. I just checked the BB website, and the UHD collection is selling for $99.99, not $19.99. I wasn't planning on upgrading my BDs, but I would have if the set really was selling for $20!

Sorry, everybody.

Grrrrrrrr! I hate making dumb mistakes like that. Best Buy isn't advertising ANY 4k titles this week.

Sorry to have gotten anyone's hopes up. :(

Well I was heading to Target for the Disney Blus (and have them price match Best Buy); but after reading about the Best Buy B&B Steelbook, I guess I'll head straight there and hope for the best.

Nine times out of ten by the time I get to Best Buy (usually around Noon) all the Steelbooks are gone.

Thanks for the prices, Mike, and greatly appreciate the review links, too.

There are a couple of Fox titles which may or may not come in next week (I haven't heard from Fox about imminent shipments, but they don't always give a heads up), and I put in to review a couple of others which haven't as yet shown up and may not. We just go with the flow.

Beauty and the Beast for sure. I don't really know if I want to chance going into a B/M on Tuesday night for the disc...it will probably be easier to preorder at BB and then just pick it up.

While I'm there, I may see what else is on the sale rack...cuz, ya know, 740 BD's on the shelf just isn't enough...

It takes a lot for me to buy new release Disney titles these days, because their deal with Netflix means they'll be showing up on there in HD only a couple months after the disc release. The best Marvel titles make the cut, but little else.

That being said, the beautiful Steelbook for the live action Beauty and the Beast has me mighty tempted.

Thanks as always for your hard work, Mike!

If only we could get Disney UHDs reliably that way.

Both Despicable Me for me. Dolby Vision!

Ex machina rebuy

Blind buy at $17 for Snitch on principle. Support these lower cost releases!!!

I'd buy Beauty if it was 4k. As is I will find a cheap code and wait.

Are you referring to Beauty and the Beast? I checked Amazon UK and it is available in 3D but appears to be Region B. Perhaps that will be updated on release day.
It might be updated by Christmas or Christmas 2018. As mentuoned in teh main Beauty and the Beast thread, Amazon almost never lists region free items as such until after release and even then it's oftne well after release if ever. 99% chance those will be region free like almost all Disney 1st Home Video releases have been since 2010, but there isn't a way to be 100% until someone checks it in mid July.

Re: Bambi, I wouldn't pay extra for a slipcover, but I do think the exclusive one is better artwork than the standard version.

Wow. If they're charging $3 more for a different cardboard slipcase...and there's no different content (between an "Anniversary" edition and a "Signature Colletion" edition)...they're nuts. Most people won't pay extra for that...no matter how much nicer the artwork might be.

And it seems like you could just swap the slipcovers, if you prefer one over the other, unless they're shrink-wrapped.
