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. We intended to see The Shallows…never got to the theater for it. Maybe I’ll pick this up as a birthday present for Andrey.

    Def Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates at some point. It’s Zac Efron and Adam Devine; can’t go wrong there for a lot of reasons.

    Thanks Mike!

  2. A really early edition of the RoundUp! Thanks, Mike!

    I should be receiving Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates this week, and I've requested one or two others which may or may not come. We'll have to wait and see. This month's Twilight Time releases have yet to find their way to my house, too.

  3. Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike!

    I had no idea until reading through the list that Rod Serling's Patterns was coming out on Blu-ray. So I'll get that as well as Chopping Mall. I'll hold off on Valley of the Dolls and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls until the next B&N Criterion sale, as they're not a priority.

  4. With 3 Criterion on the list for Tuesday — a reminder that Criterion.com 50% flash sale should be coming up fairly soon — possibly starting midday ET on Tuesday though the betting line favorite is for Tuesday 10/4.

    Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is already 19.99 at BN.com plus possibly you can use  20% off single item  code F7V8H7U AFTER the item goes live for order on Tuesday morning.   50/50 the price will stay the same at least for a bit after it becomes coupon eligible

    FS is $25 or with membership.

  5. I had no idea until reading through the list that Rod Serling's Patterns was coming out on Blu-ray.

    Dave had to mention Patterns on blu-ray, which I also missed. Hmmm, I'll wait for the reviews on that, but that may be a purchase later on down the road. Let us know what you think of that transfer when you watch it, Dave.

    After purchasing so many the last couple of weeks, it is nice to say nothing for me this week.

  6. Thanks once again for the roundup 🙂

    Target has already shipped Warcraft 4K HD which apparently was far cheaper than the Bluray alone at Target … gotta have some Dolls probably from Criterion or B&N sale or both … Prolly Bill & Ted … but later

  7. Thank for your work, Mike!

    Hunt for the Wilderpeople on Blu-ray, which you have listed in the grid, is actually not being released until October 25, but the DVD is this week.  Why the delay, I have no idea, but it was originally listed as a DVD-only release and then apparently somebody at Sony reconsidered that (which is a god thing, because the movie has some incredible wilderness visuals that deserve to be seen in HD.)

    I will wait another month for the Blu-ray edition, and consequently, there is nothing I want this week.

  8. Best Buy's Weekly ad is on the Interwebs ;http://deals.bestbuy.com/?category=featured+deals

    some examples –

    Wacraft is $19.99 on Bluray/DVD/Digital – Exclusive Bonus Content( $27.99 for same with non-BB Bonus), or $27.99 for 4K UHD with Bluray

    Central Intelligence $22.99 Bluray

    Per the Ad  the following Blurays are $17.99: Money Monster, Angry Birds, as well as Barbarians Rising, Tommorrowland, Cinderella (2015)

    Batman Killing Joke Bluray is $14.99 as well as Justice League – Teen Titans, Batman Bad Blood,

    Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, McFarland USA

  9. Jake:

    Excellent intel!  Thanks.

    I'll go remove the Blu listing for Hunt for the Wilderpeople.  But you probably just helped some people avoid an obnoxious double-dip.  :thumbsup:

    I have the Blu-ray on order with Amazon, and it's not shipping until October, so even if anyone had ordered it thinking it would arrive this week, the charge and shipment just wouldn't go through for another month.  But, happy to help, if indeed it did help someone.

  10. With 3 Criterion on the list for Tuesday — a reminder that Criterion.com 50% flash sale should be coming up fairly soon — possibly starting midday ET on Tuesday though the betting line favorite is for Tuesday 10/4.

    Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is already 19.99 at BN.com plus possibly you can use  20% off single item  code F7V8H7U AFTER the item goes live for order on Tuesday morning.   50/50 the price will stay the same at least for a bit after it becomes coupon eligible

    FS is $25 or with membership.

    The 20% off Single Item online code is working with the new Criterions  at BN.com.  The code is re-usable

    Beyond the Valley of the Dolls — $15.99 after the code.

    Dekalog  $51.79

    Valley of the Dolls is back in stock for ordering online — $25.87 (20.70 after code)

    FS is for $25+ or with membership

    Pretty good prices for new releases though the 2 50% off sales are still upcoming if you're looking for a bit lower prices

  11. though the 2 50% off sales are still upcoming if you're looking for a bit lower prices

    David:

    When should we be expecting those sales? 

    I just realized the other day I never upgraded my copy of Seven Samurai to Blu.

  12. David:

    When should we be expecting those sales?

    I just realized the other day I never upgraded my copy of Seven Samurai to Blu.

    All a bit of guesswork based on past sales. 

    My guess  BN sale should start  Nov 1 or 8th and end at  the end of the day 11/28 or 12/6 — going through CyberMonday has been the norm the last few years and  3 or 4 weeks length.

    The Criterion.com sale could be any day now .   Today isn't out of the question though I haven't seen any announcement anywhere that would indicate that.      The most likely date is Oct 4, but Criterion rarely gives much warning.  Tues (27th/4th/11th) and Thursday's (29th/6th)  starting  Noon to 1pm ET seems to be most common ( Tuesday for  6 of the 8 sales I think) .     October 11th would be an interesting date with 'McCabe and Mrs Miller'   and  'Boyhood' releasing, but I think that would be too much to ask.

  13. Do either the Criterion.com or B&N sale apply to pre-orders?  I have never tried this before, but already have Boyhood and Pan's Labyrinth pre-ordered for $0 on Amazon (gift card money from my birthday set aside for them), so it doesn't seem to make much sense for me to tamper with that, but I could get The Squid and the Whale (which comes out in November) via Criterion or B&N if it would be cheaper that way.

  14. Criterion.com  has not in the past discounted items that weren't released.  So probably none of them will be allowed unless  if the sale happens on the 11th which at least Boyhood will be 19.99.

    B&N sale — items released during the sale will be priced 50% MSRP usually at the beginning of the sale, Usually extra discounts will not be allowed until the release date — assuming discounts apply at all.  All 3 items will be 50% off in the Nov BN sale.

    Items released after the end of sale almost never 50% off though there have been a few rare exceptions over the years where it was allowed at least for a short time.

    Assuming you wait until November and buy at BN you could probably get all 3 for $51-60+ tax (a little less if you are a BN member).   It appears right now you're paying 56+tax from Amazon for 2 items.
