    Hey RoundUppers!

    Safe shopping!

    A Matter of Life and Death for me this week (at Barnes and Noble, natch!). I might consider the two IMAX UHD releases and the PBS release on Ted Williams (which I haven't seen). But all in all, mostly a quiet week for me.

    Thanks as always, Mike!

    I've got A Matter of Life and Death preordered from Barnes & Noble. That's it for me this week, though I'll pick up Supergirl at the next WBShop 3 for $33 sale. I'm going to Redbox Ready Player One on Blu-Ray. If I like it, I'll pick it up on sale down the road. It was completed as a 2K digital intermediate, and I'm not equipped for Atmos, so no reason to pay the premium for the 4K UHD release.

    Ready Player One 3D has already arrived.

    Might look into the National Parks disc, and A Matter of Life & Death.

    I keep forgetting I even saw Ready Player One. It made no lasting impression on me.

    Nothing for me this week. Thank you, Mike!

    Let's see if the knuckleheads at Walmart can make release day on my RP1 Disk+Digital this time...

    Pricey week for me- Ready Player One, In The Mouth Of Madness and Memoirs Of An Invisible Man.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    Ready Player One was fairly forgettable but, it has so many throwaway pop-culture references in the background, it might be fun to freeze-frame through it someday when the price comes way, way down.

    Are you sure about “X-Files Season 11”? The Amazon page just says it’s not out yet and doesn’t offer any release date. I know it’s out in the UK this week...

    Ready Player One both 3D and 4K. A terrifically entertaining film and one of Spielberg’s best. It truly is awesome!

    Like others, I've already pre-ordered A Matter of Life and Death, and there are several other releases this week which pique my interest.

    Thanks for the RoundUp!

    You're correct. The U.S. release hasn't been announced yet.

    Ready Player One hasn’t budged off a $30 price point so Incancelled the preorder. I’ll circle back with it at some point.

    Apparently the only 4k films offered at 2 for $30 are the HP films

    Thanks, David. I was able to take advantage of this to pick up The Quick and the Dead and Groundhog Day for $15 each.

    Amazon has Ready Player One in just 3D and a digital copy for $48, which is on the way to me. Best Buy is advertising it in Blu-ray and 3D for $29.99. I’m thinking I should order the Best Buy version and return the Amazon one when it arrives. That’s a lot for a digital copy.

    The Best Buy package also includes a digital copy.
