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 also advertises last week’s Blu of Captain America: Civil War for $19.99.

–And, Best Buy continues its promotion to get a FREE $10 BB GIFTCARD with the purchase of $50 or more of select TV titles.

–Best Buy Odds and Ends:  None to report.

–Target this week has EXCLUSIVE SHELL PACKAGING AND A BONUS BLU-RAY DISC with extra content with their Blu copies of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.

  1. You can tell the Fall Television season is about to begin…when the Weekly RoundUp gets top-heavy with releases of TV season from the past year.  And this is one of those weeks!

    Personally, The Good Wife is a MUST buy for me.  But NOT @ $44.99.  That price will need to drop quite a bit before I pull the trigger.  It's killin' me that I haven't pre-ordered TGW: Season 7.

    And I'm going to be waiting on reviews before I purchase the new release of High Noon.

    Safe shopping, RoundUppers!!  And thanks in advance for any "likes" of the OP this week.  I just want you folks to know how much I appreciate your feedback.

  2. Thanks, Mike, but I'm not getting anything this week.  Beauty and the Beast is one of about maybe ten films where I love it enough to shamelessly double dip for new extras, and the new stuff on the re-release does sound substantial enough that I will eventually get it, but since I already have the older Blu-ray edition, I'm not doing that again for $22.99 or $24.99 or anything in that neighborhood.  So, I'll keep an eye on that around Black Friday and hope for a sale.

    Otherwise, I'm taking a breather this week.

  3. Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike!

    Disney dropped me an e-mail informing me that the new Beauty and the Beast was coming, so I'd imagine it'll be here Monday. I'm currently working on Gunsmoke – Season 12, notable as its first season in color. Several others in the list I've requested but have no idea if they're coming or not. We'll just have to wait and see.

  4. Thanks, Mike!

    Personally, The Good Wife is a MUST buy for me.  But NOT @ $44.99.  That price will need to drop quite a bit before I pull the trigger.  It's killin' me that I haven't pre-ordered TGW: Season 7.

    I would happily spend a few hundred dollars on a "Complete Series" Blu-Ray set of "The Good Wife". But I won't buy the DVDs at any price. I just can't bring myself to spend money on a lower quality product than what I got for free via rabbit ears.

    And I'm going to be waiting on reviews before I purchase the new release of High Noon.

    It looks like Amazon's price matching Walmart.com on this one. After RAH's rave about the PQ, if that price holds for Site to Store on Tuesday, I'll pull the trigger then. Yet another sale Amazon has lost because of the high bar it's set for super saver free shipping.

  5. I've got High Noon and Johnny Guitar coming.

    Johnny Guitar is finally in it's OAR and it's the same price as High Noon at $16.99.  RAH gave a high recommendation for both releases.

    Also, though, Amazon for some strange reason, doesn't have them available right now, the following Stephen King novels adapted to film are coming out this week on Blu-ray.  Salem's Lot, Cat's Eye and It.  Retailers like Barnes & Noble and Best Buy have them available for order.

  6. Thanks for the RoundUp, pardner! Excellent job as always.

    Wonderful news from RAH regarding Olive's Signature Series. Makes it easier for me to justify the double-dipping (triple dip on High Noon if I count the Republic DVD)!

    My pre-orders for this week:

    The Enemy Below

    Fixed Bayonets!

    High Noon (Signature Series)

    Johnny Guitar (Signature Series)


    Along with others, I'm holding off on the Criterion releases for the next B&N sale.

  7. Thanks for the RoundUp, pardner! Excellent job as always.

    Wonderful news from RAH regarding Olive's Signature Series. Makes it easier for me to justify the double-dipping (triple dip on High Noon if I count the Republic DVD)!

    Technically I would be quadrupling – I (had) VHS, and have Artisan DVD, Olive Bluray and will get the Signature bluray for $3.00 more than I paid for the "unsigned" bluray (I bought used)

  8. I would happily spend a few hundred dollars on a "Complete Series" Blu-Ray set of "The Good Wife". But I won't buy the DVDs at any price. I just can't bring myself to spend money on a lower quality product than what I got for free via rabbit ears.

    Since I came to the TGW party late in its run, I HAD to buy the DVDs to get caught up on the series (during season 5, I think).  So I've been buying them now–when released–to complete the earlier purchases.

    But $44.99???   That's nuts.  I've still got much of the final season on my DVR.  Every once in a while I'll watch an episode.  This is most definitely a title which will wait until it falls into a realistic price.  Season 5 is currently $22.xx on Amazon.  Season 6 = $17.91!!

    Even if TGW: S7 had been selling for $29.99 on Amazon I would likely have pulled the trigger for a release day shipping.  I'm not sure what their strategy is with a price of $44.99.

    And I'm with ya about buying a complete series set on Blu, Adam!  :thumbsup:  😀
