    Quiet week for me.

    But I bet there's something there for you!

    Safe shopping, everyone!

    Thank you, Mike!

    I loved Ant-Man and the Wasp, but this close to Black Friday, I'm not inclined to pay $22.99 for it. I'll end up with it sooner or later when that price goes down.

    Although I'm looking forward to getting it, The Prince of Egypt is also on the sooner-or-later list as I have a book on the way from Amazon on Tuesday which is taking priority this week.

    I’ve had several quiet weeks, but I’ll be picking up Ant-Man and the Wasp. I really like this corner of the Marvel universe. I didn’t like the film as much as the first one, but my oldest thought it was funnier.

    Not really part of the Round Up, but a potential deal

    Criterion.com Flash sale -- most likely sale date starts Tuesday so heads up if you've been saving up titles.
    I haven't heard anything about the November BN Criterion sale, but somewhere between 10/30 and 11/6 are the likely start dates

    Hmmm. I don't remember any Marvel titles really being on special for Black Friday, and all of them pretty much are still selling for high prices. The first ANT MAN is $19.99 at Amazon.

    Thanks, Mike. I have Antz and Prince of Egypt on pre-order, and will probably pick up Black Widow if Twilight Time has a future sale. Ant-man and The Wasp will be a rental using some accumulated Amazon digital credits.

    Thank's as always for the RoundUp, Mike. I'm going to hold off and wait for sales on the few I want this week.

    I've gotten many Disney items on Black Friday special in years past. I figure that if I wait until then and it's not on sale, it won't be any higher than $22.99, whereas if I wait and there is a discount, I've saved myself money. So I really have nothing to lose by waiting. I'd like to see it again but do not feel the need to do so on an urgent basis.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp at some point in the future. I can't justify $30 right now for the 4k.

    BB's 2/$40 sale might tempt me with some combination of Predator, Die Hard and Deadpool 2.

    Thanks Mike!

    Antz / Ant-Man double feature anyone? Those release dates can't be a coincidence can they?

    :laugh:

    Considering the bad blood between Disney and DreamWorks on Antz, I think it is actually.

    Asked this in a previous thread with no reply, but hopefully since everybody is talking about Ant-Man it'll get a response. Any word on the 1st Ant-Man coming out in 4K? They released all the previous Avengers movies in 4K when Infinity War came out on disc, but I haven't heard of Ant-Man getting the same treatment.

    I think it depends on those Avengers 4K sales. If they’re good then those previous individual Marvel heroes releases could come out on 4K/UHD.

    I haven't heard, but I'd imagine Ant-Man is a lower priority on the 4K catalog reissues list than others such as Iron Man and Captain America. Though it does seem like they could have had it ready to go when the sequel was released to video.

    And I see we've now got a review of the Blu-ray of Schlock! That link has also been added to the grid.
