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 a number of Blu-rays for $17.99:  Logan, Beauty & the Beast (2017), John Wick 2, Power Rangers (2017), The Great Wall, xXx: eturn of Xander Cage, Life.

–If you don’t want to pay $17.99 for John Wick 2, you can get it for FREE.  You just have to buy a Samsung 4k UHD player (UBD-M8500/ZA) for $249.99 (on sale from $299.99).

–Then there are some of those pointless Sunday flyer notices.  For example:

**Get a FREE $5 Best Buy Gift Card when you buy select movies.  Choose from up to 13 titles.  Titles shown include:  Resident Evil: Final Chapter, Underworld: Blood Wars, The Magnificent Seven, Passengers, The Red Turtle.  But the thing is…there is no indication how much those titles cost.

**Or, Catch up on your favorite shows (What?  No mustard?).  And they show season sets of Vampire Diaries, Grimm and Bones (Final Chapter)…but only say “Starting at $24.99.”

–Best Buy also continues its deal to buy any of those first three seasons of Game of Thrones on Blu-ray for $19.99 apiece.  They also now list Season 4 of GoT for $29.99 on Blu.

_Best Buy also has 12 Blu-ray titles on sale for $9.99 apiece OR TWO for $15.  Titles shown are:  The Hateful Eight, Socario, The Last WitchHunter, Gods of Egypt and the 2-movie set of Hunger Games and Catching Fire.

  1. Thanks once again for the RoundUp, Mike!

    I found all the Bob Hope blu-rays on sale for $14.97 each at Kinolorber.com. I cancelled my Amazon order and went with them, free shipping and no tax.

  2. Thanks for the Roundup Mike

    Deep Discount had a 15% off coupon (no longer valid) and 4 of the Bob Hope discs are on the way to me …

  3. Thanks for your hard work as always, Mike!

    It's a big week for me with one title, but a very significant one. Balto is one of my last remaining holy grail titles. I grew up on this film and, at this point, never really expected a Blu-ray release. It is also the only movie I ever wanted on disc badly enough to purchase a pan & scan DVD, which I am thrilled to now be able to retire at last. I haven't seen the movie in widescreen since its theatrical release in 1995, so am very much looking forward to seeing it again on Tuesday.

    There was a thread in the Blu-ray software forum a while back about this being a Wal-Mart exclusive a few months ago, and I tried to find it at multiple stores in my area, but for whatever reason they didn't stock it here. So it's on its way from Amazon with holiday delivery on Tuesday.

    Also, while it's not a movie, it is very much connected to one: Fan of Fiddler on the Roof will want to take note of After Anatevka, a book sequel out Tuesday which follows what happens to Hodel after the end of the stage show/movie when she travels to Siberia to find Perchick. The author, Alexandra Silber, played Tzeitel in the most recent Broadway production ofFiddler last year, and was also Hodel in London prior to that.

    I've had this pre-ordered since it was first available in October, but cancelled yesterday once I found that my local bookstore put it out early. I've been reading it today and only put it down because I'm at a chapter break and it's about dinnertime here. It's REALLY good, and if you're fond of Fiddler, it's something I would wholeheartedly recommend.

  4. This is a slow month for me.

    The Zookeeper's Wife was a pretty good movie and Jessica Chastain turned in another solid performance so it's worth a rental.

    Still, thanks for the prices, Mike! 🙂

  5. Happy Independence Day week, RoundUppers!

    [​IMG]

    Only one title for me this week–The Zookeeper's Wife.

    Release day falls, of course, on July 4th. I hope deliveries will happen that day by USPS. I suspect they will.

    And as I look ahead–deeper into the month of July–I see that the streak of weeks of sparse new releases will be coming to an end! :thumbsup:

  6. Thanks for the prices, Mike. Still working on some late arrivals which were in the previous two weeks’ RoundUps (and one that’s from March but only arrived last week!).

    The two Roads for me

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    —Robert Frost

  8. My delivery today has been delayed to the 5th on account of the holiday…which would be fine with me except that delivery on the 4th was indicated in checkout and in my account.

    I just talked with a very nice rep from Amazon about this who agreed to extend my Prime membership by a month to compensate for the inconvenience.

    If any of you are similarly affected, I would suggest contacting Amazon about it. Be nice and complimentary to their service and you shouldn't have to press too hard to get this extension.
