  1. Nothing for me this week – and that's a good thing, as I'm still balls deep at the SIFF!(Although I did pick up the American Ninja set from 88 Films. Sweet!)

  2. Phew!  I'm gonna need a nap!  LOTS of titles released this week.  😮

    This is one of the biggest weeks for me, personally, in a long time.  I've got Zootopia, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and 13 Hours all coming my way on Tuesday.  And there will be others from today that will eventually make there way to me–Victor, Victoria likely among them.  😀

  3. Thanks as usual for the grids and information.

    I'm sure a lot is do to the re-release nature, but for such a popular series the release and substantial price drop  the Star Trek Complete boxset has received almost no advance ads.   Even Amazon had a very short discounted pre-order period in addition to confused

    release dates.   I don't think either the BBY or Target ads have any mention of it.

    Current prices at BBY have it 99.99 though who knows if that will last until release date even esp since it seems to be price without really a reason to exist — no other retailer is even close to it.   The best online price at DeepDiscount and Bullmoose seems to be $126.  Walmart has it at MSRP and Target doesn't even list it.

    For those looking to get Zootopia in store — Disney Movie Rewards still has a $5 off coupon available for 250 points (good through Dec 31 and should allow 2 prints though it's been a royal PITA to get it to print correctly or even find the reward to be honest.  14.99 2D or 20.99 3D for a Day 1 Tier A+ Disney is pretty special. 

    Search Get Rewards at DMR and click the 1-400 awards or search for coupon.  Shockingly if you click the Coupon Category it doesn't come up.   Then it is dependent on if you can get the printer software to work.  It has been possible in the past to print it several times using different computers by going through MYDMR/Unlocked Offers.  I did just notice it's using a different Coupon Printer that previously though it still remembers that my main computer has already printed it out  so I'm not sure if the different computer trick still works..    The new CouponBridge printer software did seem substantially easier to install  compared the Previous JumpStart so hopefully that will help.

  4. Thanks for another fun RoundUp, Mike!

    Fox has informed me I'll be getting review copies for the extended version of The Martian and The Other Side of the Door, but the review copies haven't yet arrived.

    Those Perry Mason TV-movie DVD releases I reviewed some weeks ago. I got a press release from CBS the other day about an upcoming collection of all the volumes of the movies. I didn't request a review copy since I had already reviewed all of the individual sets. But check the TV on DVD forum for that press release that I believe Ron posted if you're interested.

  5. It's a John Wayne Fest for me:

    • Chisum
    • McQ
    • She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
    • They Were Expendable

    And to add to those:

    • Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan – Director’s Edition
    • Victor/Victoria
  6. Thanks, Mike, for all your work in making this Roundup especially, because it's so extensive.  Zootopia is on the way to me from Amazon — I would love to see Target's exclusive bonus content but expect that it is tied to the Disney Movies Anywhere stream, rather than on an extra disc.  They've done that before with Inside Out and The Force Awakens and it's just not worth a trip to Target (or dealing with Target.com's slow shipping) for something that isn't going to be mine permanently on a disc that I own.  So I'm done with Target digital exclusives and am just going to stick with the regular one and be happy.

    Also, I found a DVD listing for Zootopia….but, like the stunt they pulled with The Force Awakens, they're not taking orders for it yet: http://www.amazon.com/Zootopia-DVD-Ginnifer-Goodwin/dp/B01B2CX0I8/ref=tmm_dvd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1465083492&sr=1-1

    I am also interested in The Martian extended, Victor/Victoria, and Roots, but those are wait-for-price-drop ones, not immediate must-haves.

  7. No doubt it'll eventually drop lower but I like the price on Hail, Caesar! so I'll probably pick that up this week. At some point, I'll get Vinyl: Season One and The Martian SE.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! 🙂

  8. Mike thank you for your work on the Roundup it is really appreciated (if nothing else you can gather what you will need to get a price-match at Wal*Mart )

    BB was having a 3-day sale that ended on Saturday and that may have affected prices. I was able to pre-order ST-TNG Complete for $99.99 (free shipping is available but I have set up store pickup) (sale is $60.00 of regular price of $159.99). I tried to pre-order Apocalypse Now! 2-Disc with Heart of Darkness @$11.99 bluray (regular price is $14.99) but was not able to because it was not available for store pick up or shipping:(

    They were also listing STII-TWoK fo $17.99 for bluray Pre-Order

    Zootopia DVD is listed at $17.99

    Prices are still the same !

  9. That price on Wrath of Khan is surprising. I'm glad I pre-ordered awhile ago at Amazon for $14.99, because I would not be purchasing the title at its current $22.98 price.

    Me too, Scott. The preorder is saving us both $8. Now, chances are it'll be $9.99 before too long… 🙁

  10. For those looking to get Zootopia in store — Disney Movie Rewards still has a $5 off coupon available for 250 points (good through Dec 31 and should allow 2 prints though it's been a royal PITA to get it to print correctly or even find the reward to be honest.  14.99 2D or 20.99 3D for a Day 1 Tier A+ Disney is pretty special.

    Thanks for the heads-up on this. Tried to print it, and it only sent a blank page through the printer and now tells me I've reached my print limit (tried twice, second time same as the first). Printer definitely has ink, is working, and I think my computer met all the qualifications for printing. Supposedly you can request a mailed coupon, but the steps I was finding online to do that just don't exist with this coupon printer software. Anybody have any experience with that? Can't find info to contact DMR about it either. I think I'm SOL since I reached the print limit, but thought I'd ask if anyone had any ideas. Thanks.

  11. I;d contact DMR directly and see if they can help with it since tons of people have had issues with the print/coupon software.

    It's still possible you might be able to print directly if you have another computer, but I've had spotty luck over the years troubleshooting these coupon printer

    issues over the web since they all seem to be computer/printer unique issues.    A direct connection to the printer has always worked better than wireless/distant prints and

    Mac/Mobile/Tablets have always seems to be more difficult.

    If you have another PC — hook things up to the printer, make sure the printer/quality is the default, update your Java to newest addition first .

    Go to DMR/Sign into MyDMR/  click the Unlocked Offers tab and scroll down to Disney Movie Rewards Coupon.   Click on that link and it should start the

    print cycle again — download/open/run the coupon software and follow the instructions hopefully

  12. That price on Wrath of Khan is surprising. I'm glad I pre-ordered awhile ago at Amazon for $14.99, because I would not be purchasing the title at its current $22.98 price.

    Wrath of Khan is 14.99 at Walmart.com though I'm not 100% sure it will be in store tomorrow.   BBY will probably PM however if needed. Target.com has is listed at that price also, but without a ship or store pickup option

    so that won't help

    so that won't help

    There's a good chance, then, that Amazon's price will drop back down to $14.99, as they usually end up price matching the big stores on release week.

  14. Anyone notice Amazon's typo for The Martian? Makes you wonder if they are outsourcing their product page authoring….

    (It's only on the 4K page, and it's a doozy!)

    Crap.  Nothing I love better than a good typo (especially a "doozy")…but I don't see it!

    THIS page, Todd?

  15. So I went to pick up my order at BB today…

    They did not have any TNG Complete Blurays on display bet they did have TNG complete on DVD for $69.99

    I did not see STII-TWOK

    They had 4KHD Now You See Me and thr Expendables 3 on sale for $19.99

    I went to Target and they did not have any copies of Zootopia 3D bluray available but they refused to give me a raincheck. They gave me a list of stores that MIGHT have it.

    So I went to Wal*Mart and they had one 3D Bluray of Zootopia left at $27.96 which they eventually price-matched to $25.99

    I've noticed it seems they get the 4KHD's the week after and they did not have any 4KHD currently available.

  16. Amazon has yet to ship my pre-order of She Wore a Yellow Ribbon.

    I received Zootopia and 13 Hours yesterday…but not SWaYR. 

    Anyone else have this happen?  Or did anyone here get a copy of She Wore a Yellow Ribbon?

  17. None of the three WAC Blu titles that were supposed to ship this week are in stock (They Were Expendable, Victor Victoria, and She Wore A Yellow Ribbon).

    My guess is that Amazon never received stock.   Normally they send out a release day confirmation email "we now have a date…" (which they didn't) and they mark down the price (which never moved).

    It would be nice if we could get some info – either from WA or from Amazon.

    Similar situation when I went to Fry's for the first time in forever a week ago.  Pathetic selection and awful prices.  The internet has just destroyed Brick n Mortar stores now.  I haven't really set foot in one since I got Amazon Prime, and now I'm reminded why.  I probably never will again.  Why bother when I can get it delivered to my front door on release day for cheaper?

    Amazon Customer service gave me the typical one month extension on my Prime for not delivering She Wore a Yellow Ribbon Tuesday as expected.

    However, the rep told me not to expect delivery until July 19th!

    Target had plenty of copies of Zootopia on 2D Bluray and (separate) DVD but no 3D copies left
