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. A much-needed quiet week for me, RoundUppers as it is generally a quiet week in terms of new releases.

    I am curious about this Blu release of The Bitter Tea of General Yen. Does anyone know anything about the quality of this release? I would be very interested in that particular release if the film looks to be in good shape.

    And Hired Gun sounds like it could be exceptionally interesting. Kind of like that documentary from a couple years ago: The Wrecking Crew.

    Thanks–AS ALWAYS–for "likes" to the OP. Youse guys is great.

  2. I'd love to review General Yen, but I haven't had a chance to request it yet. Otherwise, though, you're right, Mike. It's a slow first week of a new month. Things will pick up as the month continues.

    Thanks for the RoundUp and for including the links!

  3. Well, nothing this week…right now. There is a pretty good chance I’m guying a 4k TV in November (and a player, obviously), so I need to start looking at those releases…

  4. Thanks Mike for the RoundUp.

    I pre-ordered The Bitter Tea of General Yen. Very happy to upgrade a favorite film of mine. Anything that Capra/Stanwyck did together I am buying.

    I am not a steelbook guy, but those three Carpenter ones look pretty cool to me! I'm thinking of pulling the trigger and getting those as well.

  5. I forgot to add in my previous post that I saw The Circle in the theater a few months ago and it was without reservation the wort film I've seen in at least a year, if not longer; I'd have to actually look up my list of everything I see to try to figure out when I've encountered something worse. This despite having a terrific cast of people whose wok I normally love (Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Ellar Coltrane, Karen Gillian, Bill Paxton, Glenne Headley, Patton Oswalt, etc.) and a director, James Ponsoldt, whose past work (The Spectacular Now, The End of the Tour) I really loved. I went to see it in spite of the bad reviews because I thought, surely all of these people who have been involved with so many great things before had to make something worthwhile, right?

    Nope. It's really, really, really, really bad.

    If you happen to be interested in this one, I would highly discourage it. Save your money and your time.

  7. Ugh. You just gave me a flashback to when I was on a work-related 4-hour chartered bus trip many years ago and someone decided that they should show a movie on the bus (which sucks because they use speakers for the audio–not headphones–so you can't escape it) and someone decided that it would be a good idea to show the Affleck/J-Lo follow-up to Gigli–Jersey Girl!

    Aaaaaaaaaaaack! Worst highway trip I have EVER taken!

    😀

    I think the worst movie watch on a bus might be …

    I may have to look into this one! LOVED Wrecking Crew! And I'd love to see the Shin Godzilla if someplace rents it….

  10. I ended up ordering The Mummy and Dracula Legacy Collections from Amazon for $21 each, plus Justice League Unlimited for $24 with a gift card.

    I'm contemplating some UHD discs on the cheap right now to be ready for the fall when we get the new TV…

    So if it was a four hour bus trip, then you got to watch it TWICE??
