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. Hello RoundUppers!

    This has to be one of the biggest weeks this summer for new releases. Lots of varying titles of interest for film-lovers.

    Godzilla, Bette Davis, animated pets, classic films, westerns, rock biographies, camp films, Criterion Collection releases, some classic TV…and Tina Louise! 😀

    I've got Jezebel on pre-order (based on my Thin Man pre-order with Amazon, I hope to get it sometime around Christmas 2023). Someday I'll probably bite on Godzilla and Rocketman.

    Thanks as always for all the "likes" and support each and every week. Youse guys is da best.

  2. As always, thank you for your terrific work, Mike!

    Two of the best movies of the summer come out this week. Rocketman and The Last Black Man in San Fransisco.

    Unfortunately, I really shouldn't get both right now because the next couple weeks are also really crowded with releases that I want. So I'm going to get Rocketman now and Last Black Man later.

    I feel like Rocketman will be something I'll watch more often, of the two. I even (briefly) cancelled my pre-order of it because it hasn't dropped from $22.99 and I'd really like it to be less. But then re-ordered, because I really want to see it again right away. For my money, it's the best musical this year (and I do mean musical — the use of Elton's songs in musical-sequence mode, rather than exclusively in performance mode, makes it really stand out among other musical biopics.)

    The Last Black Man in San Fransisco is also sensational too, and I think it deserves a Best Picture nomination. If September and October weren't so packed with new releases, I'd probably get it now too, but something has to wait. I'd highly recommend it as a rental to anyone interested who missed it in theaters (and given is ~$4 million gross, that's probably a lot of people.) Here's hoping it finds a larger audience at home.

  3. Already got Godzilla 3D in the mail from Best Buy, guess I'll have to import Secret Life of Pets since they're playing that game again. Also gonna get Let My Puppets Come since I've never seen the full-length version. It's pretty bad, but it's from the 70s!

  4. 3D of Godzilla 2 is pre-ordered. Will get the 3D import of Pets 2 and the blu of Jezebel at some point in the future.

    I can't believe 9 Lives of a Wet Pussy was not a featured title with a picture. 😀 I also can't believe they're selling it at Target. 😮

    Thanks – as always – for the Round-Up Mike:D!

    I'm getting the um Flash Gordon Serials parody pre-ordered through Target's previous sale …

    My memory is that Target has sold the Xena Warrior Princess (topless) Spartacus series in stores. and that has far more less family friendly stuff than any of the movies you or I have mentioned.

    I also remember getting the previously X-Rated "Midnight Cowboy" on Digital Versatile Disc when it came out at Target … :cool:!

    I believe the films (FG and 9LoWP) are only for sale over the interwebs. Unlike Wal*Mart I don't recall getting an age restriction issue at Target.

    I ordered Apocalypse Now 4k and Stand By Me 4k from Deep Discount … at net cost of under $20.00 for each when there was a 15% off sale.

    I'm sure that Jezebel will be on my shelf eventually …

  6. For those of you ordering Rocketman from Amazon, has yours shipped yet?

    Mine is still listed as arriving tomorrow, but hasn't shipped yet, and it is 3:00 p.m. the day before. They've been shipping things later and later, but this seems extreme.

    Is Amazon having a feud with Paramount too? I was only aware of them fighting with Disney.

    Edit: 20 minutes after posting this, my shipping notice came through.

    There have been times where I've received a shipping notice later in the evening, and then have it arrive the next day.

  8. Is Godzilla a WB title? They're the only other ones I know Amazon was pissing with, and mine still hasn't shipped; says it's coming Thursday. I haven't had that happen in ages, mostly because I know not to order any Disney titles from them.

    Side note, should I preorder Dark Phoenix from them, since Disney now owns Fox? Or is it now dragged into the feud?

    Godzilla is a Warner title. I don't think Fox titles are being affected yet.

    Also affected by the feud (or whatever is going on) are Sony and Universal pressed MOD line via Allied Vaughn. A-V is responsible for the WAC line as well as specifically teh WB 3D line (not including BBY Exclusives which still are under the normal Warner HV banner)

    Would I trust Amazon on a Fox title – not if you insist on Release Day delivery.

  11. When did Amazon start feuding with Warner again? I know they were doing that around late 2016 when the Disney feud started, but I thought it ended. The last WB title I bought from Amazon was A Star is Born, which was delivered just fine on its release date back in February. So, admittedly, I don't buy nearly as many Warner titles as Disney ones.

    They had a bit of a hissy fit after the first of the year, but that only affected Prime Video purchases and MA redemptions of WB content. It lasted for about 3 months, and everything is back to normal again.

  13. Todd Erwin

    My pre-order still hasn't shipped from Amazon.

    This is how my chat with Amazon started out:

    Jolina | Customer Service
    Hi Todd! I see that you're contacting about your apocalypse. I'll be happy to assist you today.

  14. Wayne_j

    And yes, my pre-order still hasn't shipped. They are now claiming next week. Great conversation with customer support there.

    My SuperTarget had four copies at 8:30pm … In the movie section under "New Releases" … just sayin'

  15. Robert Crawford

    Godzilla is a Warner title. I don't think Fox titles are being affected yet.

    Ahh, I just looked at my Dark Phoenix pre-order on Amazon and it's set to arrive on Thursday instead of Tuesday. Looks like the Disney effect may have spread.
