    Hey RoundUppers!

    Another week which brings a collection of some interesting new releases combined with some deep catalog titles.

    But just Deadpool 2 for me. I didn't get to it in the theater so am really looking forward to seeing this next chapter. I've pretty much given up on all super hero films. But, Deadpool is just, well....different! :D Just a little bit! Am I right?!? :laugh:

    And Heaven Can Wait at some future CC sale. But I've got SUCH a backlog of CC and other titles right now...I'm in no rush.

    Safe shopping!

    Thank you, Mike!

    I hope you like it more than I did, but I thought Deadpool 2 was significantly worse than the first film and a big disappointment to me, so I don't need to buy that disc. The end credits scene was hilarious, but everything leading up to it didn't work for me.

    So, nothing for me this week. A few of those Marvel catalog titles on sale at Target that I don't have yet should enter my collection eventually, but not for $22.99.

    That's the kind of film that's reserved for me, the dogs, a cranked-up surround system, an ironing board and a hamper full of wrinkled dress shirts!

    Fun AND productive!

    I'll pick up Deadpool 2 down the road, once the price comes down. I enjoyed it in theaters, more than I thought I would, but I'm not in a big rush to see it again.

    That's a really good price for the complete series of "Masters of Sex" on Blu, but I don't have the time to tackle another whole show right now.

    So nothing for me! Time to chip away at the backlog.

    Nothing for me as I spent my movie money at the Kino sale.

    Will upgrade Heaven Can Wait to blu at Barnes & Noble later this year.

    Big week for me. I'll be picking up Ash Vs. Evil Dead: S3, Strait-Jacket and The Tingler. I'll get The Walking Dead during an inevitable sale.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    You could take advantage of that Best Buy sale this week... (for the two TV titles).

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

    I did have a review for this week - the DVD set of NCIS: The Fifteenth Season. It can be found here.

    Deadpool 2 will be a blind buy for me, too, and I also pre-ordered Strait-Jacket/Berserk months ago, so looking forward to seeing both of those again after many years away from each. The Last Hunt is one I've never seen before, but it's coming on TCM this week, and I have set the DVR to catch it for me. If I like it, I'll be adding that Blu-ray to the collection at some point.

    D'oh! For some reason I got confused and thought NCIS was released last week. Sorry.

    Fixed. Link added to the RoundUp!

    Thanks for the prices, Mike. I will rent Deadpool 2 instead of making a blind purchase. Nothing else for me this week.

    You should enjoy "The Last Hunt" especially the ending which was unique for the time that film was made.

    I pre-ordered Ash vs. Evil Dead S3, so that should be arriving tomorrow.

    And the link is now in the RoundUp.

    I can't say I'm surprised by your review, Todd. I haven't seen the film. But as a dog lover I give close attention to all films about dogs and the trailer for this one couldn't even come close to making it look good.
