    Hey RoundUppers!

    Some interesting stuff hits the shelves this week!

    For me, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again (well, for my wife)...and Celebrating Mickey.

    Hope you all find something you like.

    Safe shopping!

    And--AS ALWAYS--thanks for the 'likes.' I don't want you to think they go unnoticed and unappreciated.

    Thank you, Mike!

    Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is the only movie all summer that I saw twice in theaters and I can't wait to get the disc.

    I'll probably end up with Celebrating Mickey and Sorry to Bother You at some point down the line.

    Looks like a guilty pleasure with some Vestron Video action for me: Maximum Overdrive

    Looks like 'Get Shorty' (one of my all-time favorites) is just a re-hash of the MGM Blu (extras wise), with a new transfer. Don't think I'll need to double dip on this one.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike.

    A couple of desirables this week, but I'll likely wait for more advantageous pricing.

    Thanks Mike!

    The first Mamma Mia! wasn't what you'd call a good movie, but it was an exuberant and fun one. If the sequel is more of the same, then it will definitely at least merit a rental.

    Sorry to Bother You will also merit a rental, since I missed it in theaters.

    What is going on with "The 100" Season 5 on Blu-ray? It was supposed to come out last week with the DVD release, then it was supposed to come out a week from Tuesday, now it's listed for November 13th. is Warner Archive having manufacturing issues?

    Celebrating Mickey and Mamma Mia...the former this week, the latter when I get back from Europe in 2 weeks. My guess is Amazon is going to be weird about this Disney release and I'll be going out to find it in store Tuesday night.

    Thank you Mike!

    I'm posting this here because it does relate to a release this week:

    I just got back from the Twilight Fathom Event.

    The film looked better than I have ever seen it before. Before the movie they showed a bonus feature from the coming UHD release of Twilight. This bonus feature is one of the best ones I have seen in a few years. Jackson Rathbone and Catherine Hardwicke took us for a tour of Twilight filming locations 10 years after filming there. The owner of the Cullen house says that he gets hundreds of tourists a year. A group of about 8 tourists showed up while they were shooting the bonus feature.

    Just a head's up that Amazon is selling the 30 film Universal Classic Collection on Blu-ray for $69.99! This sale is only for today while supplies last.

    Sue me, I like ABBA music, and the wife definitely wants to see Mama Mia: Here We Go Again (wasn't it just at the theaters last week?)

    There may be some truth to Jason's expectation.

    I have two Amazon pre-orders this week: Mamma Mia 2 and Celebrating Mickey.

    I just got notice that Mamma Mia 2 has shipped and will arrive tomorrow. Celebrating Mickey...not so much. I just checked my account and the item is listed as:

    Oddly enough, mine has not. Weird.

    And regarding Celebrating Mickey -- I'm not going to trust Amazon on any future Disney titles, period.

    I think I might just have to dance the dance with an Amazon customer service rep asking why I'm not getting that title on its release date...even though I ordered it several weeks in advance.

    Anyone who sees Celebrating Mickey in a B&M, PLEASE report it here.

    It's supposed to be at Best Buy, but the store inventory won't update until tomorrow morning sometime.


    Walmart Brickseek price is $14.96 so hopefully that means something will show up instore or online just as a Price Match item

    Target -- using one of the Inventory apps it does appear some stores are showing up to 4 in house though none of my usual closest stores.

    I'm gonna do by best to order from BB first thing in the morning and see what happens. Assuming Amazon doesn't ship mine miraculously overnight.

    You could do that, but you probably know more about the reason for this than they do. The ongoing Amazon/Disney feud isn't something that the customer service reps are going to admit to even if they know about it, which I doubt they do. To be honest, I'm surprised Amazon was offering pre-orders for this title as long as they did, since usually they get pulled much sooner. Best case scenario they'll probably extend your Prime membership another month.

    Maybe I should come complain here about Amazon shipments more often; the shipping notice on Mamma Mia! just came through.

    They're saying it will arrive by 11pm, though, which is significantly later than the standard 8pm. It's being delivered by the post office, so I suspect it will still end up here late afternoon.
