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. This is one of those rare weeks where not one disc release on either the Blu-ray or DVD lists worked its way onto my review schedule. And I don't see much there that would tempt me to buy either.

    I would like to eventually see Tom Hiddleston as Hank Williams, but I can rent that one down the line.

    Thanks for the effort, Mike!

    Happy 4th, everyone!

  2. Happy Independence Day, everyone! 

    Nothing for me this week.  time to hunker down with my copy of 1776 and be grateful to be a citizen of the U.S.!!  :thumbsup:

    Same Here … B&N Criterion sale this week and I'll see if I can find the DVD of RAH's restoration of The Story of A Patriot

  3. Just the Taking of Pelham One Two Three (42nd Anniversary Special Edition) for me.

    And for Mike:

    "Gentlemen, forgive me if I don't join in the merriment, but if we are arrested now, my name is STILL THE ONLY ONE ON THE DAMN THING!" —John Hancock

    Me too!  I just bought 8 more Twilight Time titles and outside of the B&N criterion sale I don't plan on any additional purchases in the short term.

  5. Amazon never ceases to amaze me — I got a shipping notice this morning for Only Yesterday, with the carrier listed as USPS….even despite the fact that today is a federal holiday and the post office is not operating today.  Of course, it will come tomorrow, but still…

    Depending on the City, Amazon has an arrangement to deliver on Sundays and Holidays 😎

    Yep, I received my copy of Airport: The Complete Collection at 10am this morning (July 4th) at 10am via USPS. And I don't live in a large city).

  8. Yep, I received my copy of Airport: The Complete Collection at 10am this morning (July 4th) at 10am via USPS. And I don't live in a large city).

    One of the USPS trucks almost hit me Sunday, so this is for reals 😮

  9. Oh, I also have received *Sunday* delivery, but never federal holiday delivery.  In the case of Only Yesterday, it's not due out until tomorrow anyway….but I was surprised to see the post office working at all on Amazon's behalf on a holiday. 🙂

  10. So, here is a funny note on Amazon delivery…

    Spoke to my mailman about the fact that they now deliver every day of the week and he said "Yes, that is due to Amazon but we had a special meeting about this and Amazon wants to take their deliveries away from us and are purchasing their own fleet of vans to make their own deliveries." 

    I said "Yes, I think I read that they want to do that to expand same day delivery of their packages."

    He said "We were informed in the meeting if they do this and stop using USPS for their deliveries if we find Amazon packages in your mailbox we are to remove them and take them to be held at the post office because it is a federal offense for them to put their packages in your mailbox."

    "Really?" I said.

    "Yes, Amazon has been informed and their packages will be removed if they attempt to use your mailbox as a delivery receptacle. Your mailbox is actually considered federal property and may not be used by any other delivery service except the USPS. It is a federal offense for them to open it or put anything in it as that is considered tampering with the US mail."

  11. That's all true about the mailbox.

    Same rules hold true for any other carrier…and even local restaurants and political campaigns. 

    They are NOT allowed to put things in your mailbox.  That is why campaigns always use things like door hangers to let you know they stopped by.  And why, so often, you find take-out menus tucked under your welcome mat.

    I'm not sure, however, about the USPS removing items from your mailbox.  That doesn't sound right to me.

  12. That's a curious development. I wish the USPS had that dedication the past few decades in  in removing unsolicited, unmailed circulars from my mailbox. 🙂

    And I wish my mail carrier would follow instructions and put oversize packages on my front step where they go, instead of behind the garage on the lawn where they are missed, and subject to the weather and easier theft.

    And those kids should get off my lawn!!! grumble grumble 🙂
