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. I was supposed to get eight titles for review last week, and none of them made it to me. Maybe something this week. I do have one on the release list scheduled for me. We'll see.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike. The 1954 Lady in the Dark TV production (with Ann Sothern in the part made famous on stage by Gertrude Lawrence) looks interesting.

  2. Hi-dee-ho, RoundUppers!

    Another interesting week of releases.  New Criterions (Kino & Olive, too), some John Wayne, Bogie & Bacall, more 4k titles.  Pretty much something for everyone…except for me.  This is an off week for me!  Which is okay since I've been busy the past few weeks!

    Happy shopping!  And thanks (in advance) for any "likes" this week!

  3. Thanks, Mike!

    I'll be picking up "Orphan Black" Season Four on Blu-Ray, since experience has shown that the price for Orphan Black Blu-Rays rarely (if ever) dips below Best Buy's $19.99 first week pricing.

    The Best Buy website is showing a $21.99 price for "The Magicians" Season One uncensored Blu-Ray, which Amazon appears to be matching. If that turns out to be the in-store price on Tuesday, I'll pick that up as well.

    The Warner Archive Blu-Ray of "The 100" Season Three is a must at some point, but I'm going to hold off since the Warner Archive Season Two Blu-Ray dropped briefly below $27 within a month of its release and was fairly consistently below that level by the following spring. Still wish they'd include digital copies like the Warner Bros retail release of the first season, but this is definitely a whole lot better than nothing.

    I'm also holding off on the final season of "Person of Interest". It's ridiculous that the price is $5-10 more than the first week pricing for the prior seasons, when you're getting 9-10 fewer episodes. I'll wait until it drops below $20 down the road.

    I would be sorely tempted to pick up the Ghostbusters Steelbook if I hadn't grabbed the 2009 pre-4K Blu-Ray on sale for $3.99 a while back.

  4. The 1954 Lady in the Dark TV production (with Ann Sothern in the part made famous on stage by Gertrude Lawrence) looks interesting.

    Agreed, I'm hoping a review will come out on that. I would like to know how well the presentation is before I blind buy.

  5. I am buying more blu-rays and DVD's this month than I originally intended to, what with the Criterion sale at B&N and the studios offering some great new releases.

    I am in for three new releases this week:

    Gun the Man Down

    'neath the Arizona Skies

    And there was no way I was not going to purchase:

    To Have and Have Not


    One of my favorite films and Warner is knocking it out of the park with the quality of their releases lately.

  6. Pretty much something for everyone…except for me. This is an off week for me! Which is okay since I've been busy the past few weeks!

    And there was no way I was not going to purchase:

    To Have and Have Not

    Oooops.  I forgot I had pre-ordered To Have and Have Not a while back, too.  Guess my purchase streak continues!  :wacko:

  7. Odd experience with Best Buy today. Before I left for work this morning, I went on BestBuy.com and ordered "Orphan Black" Season 4 and "The Magicians" Season 1 on Blu-Ray for store pickup. The confirmation email came at 8:13 AM. Normally it never takes more than an hour or so for the Order Ready email to hit my inbox.

    But come 4 PM, still no Order Ready email. So I call up my local store and one of the customer service people looks up my order and confirms that it hasn't been retrieved yet. Apparently the warehouse guys in the back fulfill the in-store pickup orders when they're not unloading trucks and breaking down pallets, and today they were swamped for whatever reason.

    I had some other shopping I needed to do, so I decided to head over to the mall anyway. I figured, worst come to worst, I could just grab the titles off of the shelves myself and ask customer service to cancel the in-store pickup order. But, sure enough, after parking at Best Buy I check my email and the Order Ready email arrived minutes earlier, at 5:34 PM. I head to the online order pickup spot, and the lines all jammed up.

    Apparently their whole computer system went down, so they were recording all of the Order Pickup transactions using printed ledger sheets. Once it was my turn, they wrote out each item as a line on the ledger sheet, and then had me sign on the bottom to confirm that I had taken possession of the item.

    All's well that ends well, and there wasn't really any serious inconvenience. It was just really bizarre, from beginning to end.

  8. I'll be getting To Have and Have Not along with Batman v Superman. I found the theatrical cut to be a troubled, but fascinating movie. While I know it can't resolve all the issues with the movie, I'm looking forward to seeing the longer version. I just haven't decided whether to buy the 3D version or the 4K version for future proofing.

  9. To those who have NOT received To Have and to Have Not … my last B&N shipment came and it included …

    😉

    "There are some who say he’s coming back and we have only to wait …

    There are some who say he burst up there because ball was not meant to fly …

    And there are some who maintain he landed safely in a place where balls bounce high ..."

  10. I had a frustrating chat tonight with an Amazon rep.

    Release date was July 19.  My "orders" page now says I'll get it by July 27th.

    But my Amazon rep said when I pre-ordered it, the delivery date on my checkout page was "unknown."

    He even admitted that the release date of July 19th was showing on the product page when I pre-ordered.  But in his mind, the order is not late because it was neither delayed in the mail nor was the delivery date changed.

    Has anyone else received a copy via Amazon?
