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. Wouldn'tja think Amazon would want to list Avengers: Endgame on its site this week? 🙄 Just not sure how these "feuds" are a "win" for anyone.

    I am REALLY excited about the release this week of The Professor and the Madman–EXCEPT that it's a DVD-only release. :angry:

    Professor/Madman is the only definite pre-order for me this week. I'll be watching for sales on titles like WagonMaster and Port of Shadows.

    Safe shopping, RoundUppers!

  2. Thank you for your work, Mike!

    +1 for Endgame. Obviously.

    It's a little bit ridiculous that the Blu-ray release of the #1 highest-grossing film ever can't drop below $22.99 on release week. Just saying.

    That being said, of course I'm going to get it anyway. $22.99+tax will still work out to be less money than I paid to see it in theaters because I went four times, so…yeah, whatever. I can't wait to watch it again.

    As usual, I am not interested in any of the retailer exclusives because I want to keep all of my Marvel titles in (relatively) uniform keepcase packaging and don't want Endgame to look weird on the shelf next to its MCU brethren. So, just the regular Blu-ray edition for me.

    Also, All is True is a terrific movie and I would encourage anyone with an interest in Shakespeare to seek it out for at least a rental. I don't feel the need to buy it right now, but it was great.

  3. Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

    Those early early Hitchcocks are well worth buying. I'll be getting Blackmail soon since I didn't get to review it. And Endgame is a must for those who have kept up with the Marvel Universe storylines.

  4. Thanks for the RoundUp, per usual Mike. I will pick up Endgame eventually once the price drops under $20. It's available for streaming rental later this week, so I plan on using some of my Amazon digital credits for a free rental — I haven't seen the film yet.

  5. Thanks for the roundup, as always, Mike! I leveraged my DMC membership and ordered all 3 Iron man 4K releases and both Thors. Total came to $21 per title shipped. I can live with that. 🙂

    I am REALLY excited about the release this week of The Professor and the Madman–EXCEPT that it's a DVD-only release. :angry:

    Why is this? I mean it is a brand new picture so why is this not getting a blu?

    Why is this? I mean it is a brand new picture so why is this not getting a blu?

    I've read there were some legal fights over the film between Gibson and the producers, so the studio is probably doing the bare minimum necessary to fuifill their release obligations just to wash their hands of it. It sat on the shelf for a couple years before it was finally released. It was actually released to theaters and digital at the same time and the producers did not report any info about theater counts or grosses.

It sat on the shelf for a couple years before it was finally released. It was actually released to theaters and digital at the same time and the producers did not report any info about theater counts or grosses.

    This explains some things for me. I had noticed the trailers for the film on TV and the internet and such at right about the same time an acquaintance had told me that he saw that the film was available as a redbox rental. I couldn't figure that out. And now the home video release is finally here. None of it was making any sense. And a lot of it still doesn't.

    And you'd think with stars like Gibson and Penn (and the positive buzz) there'd be enough of a call for a Blu release. And I "get" that the subject matter may cause some eyelids to droop, but we know how that's never an indicator if a film is going to be good or not.

  9. Jeff Cooper

    Just crossing my fingers that retailers like Target and Best Buy actually get some copies of IronMan/Thor 4Ks in stock.

    Purely anecdotal, but my Target had shelf tags up for all five releases, plus Endgame last night. Nothing was on the shelf, but the tags were there with open spaces for the discs.

    I'll find out in a few hours!

  11. My store had exactly one copy of each in their reduced video disc section. I mean that section has been decimated in footage. So much so, I wish they just get rid of the section all-together that way people don't have to waste their time going there as it's so small now.

    There should also be an endcap near the checkout lanes with "New Releases." They also sometimes have a cardboard display with the new titles with the rest of the series as well as individual releases of the character as well sometimes.

    I went to my SuperTarget after 8pm and there were at least three of the older film new release Marvel 4ks. As well as Many copies of Endgame as well as a cardboard display at the front of the store…

    I didn't look too hard, but I didn't see the Lucy color episodes …

    I checked the endcap too as that's where most of the Endgame discs were at.

  14. I got the 6 MCU movies in UHD from the Best Buy website. Judging by the remaining standard Blu-Rays on my MCU shelf all they have left to release are Guardians 1, Ant Man 1, Doctor Strange, and of course Spider-Man Far From Home which is still in theaters.

  15. Mike Frezon

    Professor/Madman is the only definite pre-order for me this week.

    I knew I wouldn't be getting it on release date (August 13th). Even though I pre-ordered it, Amazon told me I wouldn't take delivery until August 15th.

    But now I got an email from Amazon telling me it will arrive on August 26th or 27th. 🙁

    Bad enough it's a DVD release, but now it's going to be delayed THAT much?!? :angry:
