  1. One of the last big weeks of 2018!

    Safe shopping, everyone and here's to a great holiday season! 😀

    I'm really looking forward to seeing MI: Fallout. I never did get to a theater to see it this summer.

    And, I've got the 2018 World Series release coming to me. 😉

  2. Thanks again for the RoundUp, as always excellent work Mike!

    Just to clarify, though, when I click on the Westworld S2 4K/UHD Amazon link, my price is coming up as $44.95. Just so people are aware the preorder price may have changed significantly.

    I'm going to change the grid price to reflect that info, Carlo. Thanks for pointing it out. :thumbsup:

  4. Thank you, Mike!

    There are a lot of interesting titles this week, but I'm going to take a bit of a breather after last week's Black Friday shopping.

    The Mission Impossible box set — and Yellowstone — and perhaps The Lion King 4K (which is one of the very few titles I care about enough to future-proof despite not having plans to go 4K at this time are all going to be on my "eventually" list.

    The only thing I have coming from Amazon this week is the soundtrack for Mary Poppins Returns, which is out Friday and which will cost me $2.36 after applying various "we goofed up" gift cards to it that I got from Amazon last week. I'm glad to have the week off otherwise.

  5. Thanks for the prices, as always, Mike. Nothing for me this week — I spent enough during the holiday sales last week. I will eventually pick up the UHD of Westworld Season 2, but that will wait for a price drop. I may also eventually pick up the UHD of The Lion King, but it will have to drop in price significantly before that happens,

  6. I'm going to have to space out purchases from this week's releases: Handmaid's Tale S2, Atomic Cafe, Westworld S2 and Doctor Who Davison S1… Probably picking up Handmaid's Tale this week.

    Thanks again for the prices!

  7. The Lion King in 4k…but not right now. I cancelled my Amazon preorder since it's been stuck at "way too much" for a while. I will be going in store to see if I can snag any (good) Christmas stuff. Otherwise, I think I'm focusing o holiday shopping.

    As the elves say…gotta be ready by Christmas Eve. 🙂

    Thanks Mike!

  8. Mike, I can't believe you didn't single out "Pick of the Litter" which is coming out this week on DVD. I will probably get it on iTunes because the picture quality will probably be better in HD than on the DVD.

    Wayne:

    Neither can I. 🙁

    I was kinda rushed when putting this week's WRU together. I meant to.

    Wayne tipped me off to this fine documentary (which played theatrically in our area) on the process that pups go through to become service dogs. It is SO MUCH MORE comprehensive a process than simply training a therapy dog. The stakes are enormous and only the absolute best dogs make the cut. It was a well-done and insightful documentary–even for this dog-centric guy (and gal–Peg loved it, too!). But it was also put together in a very fun way in which the audience becomes vested in each of the pups profiled and quietly pulling for some "underdogs" along the way. Great fun.

    I pre-ordered many, many weeks ago.

    I didn't see what it was in the grid before, so I'm not sure if this is referring to the price going up or down, but my current pre-order price on WWS2 is $34.49.

    I didn't see what it was in the grid before, so I'm not sure if this is referring to the price going up or down, but my current pre-order price on WWS2 is $34.49.

    Yup. That's what it was…

    IIRC, Target had the 4k season 1 set for really cheap shortly after its release.

    Yeah Amazon must have had it lower until the ads for Target and Best Buy came out at $44.99 and then raised their price to match it. Cool for those who got in early, bad for those of us who didn't. At least that's my theory on Amazon's pricing scheme. I don't have proof, but it's happened more than once before that I can recall, where a preorder price jumped significantly on the release of Sunday sale prices by BB or Target.

  13. Mike Frezon

    Yup. That's what it was…

    IIRC, Target had the 4k season 1 set for really cheap shortly after its release.

    Yes, I recall picking up the 4K set last year as it was priced the same or cheaper than the blu-ray set. But I still haven't watched any of it, so I'm taking a pass on the second season for now regardless of the price.

  14. Malcolm R

    Guilty as charged.

    It was an amazing price. I had heard great things about it. And there it sits.

    Yeah, it came out in November, 2017 and by July, 2018 it was $18.99 for a brief time. Like you and Mike, I haven't watched my 4K set either. However, unlike you, I haven't learned my lesson and bought the Season 2 on November 22nd for $32.49.:roll:

    Same for me. I picked up the 4k even though I didn't have 4k, because it was cheaper. I actually did watch it though. 🙂

    Now I do have 4k, so season 2 was a must in 4k, regardless of the price.

  17. DavidJ

    Does anyone know the price of the Mission Impossible 4K collection at Best Buy? I ordered from Amazon, but it's not arriving until the 17th.

    I would stick with that Amazon order as I think that you'll have it before the 17th. Mine is arriving today.

  18. I was in Target last night and they had very non-descriptive verbage with some of their 4k titles. The "sale" is 3/$40 or $19.99 each. There were only a handful of titles with the shelf tag and I couldn't find a complete list anywhere. Nothing really caught my eye so take that for what it's worth.

There were only a handful of titles with the shelf tag and I couldn't find a complete list anywhere. Nothing really caught my eye so take that for what it's worth.

    Yesterday I was on their site and the selection was restricted to Warner titles from I can see with all of them already in my collection like Justice League, Wonder Woman, Blade Runner 2049 and Rampage to name a few.

  20. I was in a Target last night. This one particular store had several copies of the 4k Lion King on their shelves. Other than that, I just pretty much noticed that the media section was pretty hard to find. Still near the Electronics Department but really reduced in size to a couple partial aisles.

    I was in a Target last night. This one particular store had several copies of the 4k Lion King on their shelves. Other than that, I just pretty much noticed that the media section was pretty hard to find. Still near the Electronics Department but really reduced in size to a couple partial aisles.

    My Target Media section (were it not for the titles and addition of blu-ray and 4K blu-ray) somewhat resembled a media section ca 1995 With vinyl albums on one endcap and another section of vinyl next to it. Another section of audio CDs (sans longboxes). Admittedly there were no record bins to search through.

    The was another 4 way fixture with CDs on one side, many were Yule related (One side was devoted to gift cards for other places …)
    The Other sides had cheaper dvds & Blu-rays

    There were at least 3 aisles with a mixture of DVds, Blu-ray and 4K blu-rays.(with some Xmas CDs mixed in)

    They were OOS on many items. but I had a $20.00 of $100 coupon and was able to get MI:Fallout 4K for $26.99 +$5.00 Target GC (There was no shelf tag and it was listed at $29.99. The did have some of the um classic Dreamworks Animation movies for $5.00. I got the Bee Movie Blu-ray.

    But my Target is a Superstore with a huge produce section …

    My SupurWal*Mart in the same mall has reduced their CD selection … bur they have Airforce One 4K for $19.99 and the bowling bageless Big Lebowski 4K for $17.99… (Which are NOT in stock at Target)

    Safe Shopping everyone
