    Hey R-R-RoundUppers!

    Some interesting stuff out there this week.

    I'll be picking up Notorious down the road. In the meantime, I'm taking a flyer on The Old Man and the Gun. I thought the trailers that aired on TV during its run made it look like fun. But I never got to the theater to see it.

    Safe shopping!

    Thanks for the RoundUp!

    Yes, Notorious is a definite must have, and if I can find Obsession for a decent price down the line, I'll replace my barely watched once DVD with it.

    Thanks, Mike!

    Nothing for me this week.

    The Old Man and the Gun was very good and I think you will like it, but I'm not sure it would be something I would want to replay very much, so I don't feel like I need it right away. Maybe after a price drop.

    I'll be picking up Halloween this week and at some point, I'll get Notorious and Obsession (I guess in the last few months, Amazon realized that they were the only major retailer for Shout titles and decided to screw the consumer by giving almost no discount any more).

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    I have "Cliffhanger" and "Notorious" coming to me this week and will order the 4K/UHD of "Halloween" at a discounted price and the same with the "The Glass Key" BD.

    Thanks, Mike! I will pick up Notorious during a future sale, and will consider upgrading my BD of Cliffhanger to 4K/UHD if the price drops to $15 or less.

    I wasn't going to purchase anything this week, but I really like the idea of these retro VHS covers, and since A) I don't currently own it, and B) the price is so low, I went ahead and pre-ordered Last Action Hero. Marketing wins me over, again!

    The remainder I will be holding off on purchasing for when the pricing goes down:
    • The Glass Key
    • Notorious (B&N sale)
    • Obsession

    All right, I lied, I did pick up something this week after all.

    The soundtrack to Juliet, Naked (which I bought on Blu-ray a couple weeks ago when Target had 15% off movie) dropped to $10.69 on Amazon so I grabbed that finally to go with the movie.

    I just wanted to mention this as an excuse to say that Juliet, Naked is one of my favorite films of last year that I don't know anyone else who actually saw, and I'D highly recommend it for anyone who is interested. The title makes it sound like a porn movie but it's not; it refers to an acoustic ("naked") version of Ethan Hawke's character's album. The soundtrack is pretty good too.

    I have added a link to the grids of Timothy E's review of the UHD release of Halloween (2018).
