I just picked up the complete Addams Family collection on DVD from walmart for $20.00. I forgot how surprisingly wholesome this show was. Once you get past the macabre interest of the Addams family, they really are the most wholesome and loving family in pretty much any sitcom.

That's a great deal for the whole series. Are all the discs single sided in this release? I think the original complete series set had some flippers in it.

The disks use both sides but I'm not complaining

Thanks! I must have been thinking of the Munsters complete series release then, I'm pretty sure that Universal switched from flippers to single sided discs for it's complete series release.

If you're interested in The Munsters as well, I believe Wal-Mart was stocking the most recent complete series package for $25 sometime last year (front cover divided into 4 sections, 2 green & 2 purple with Munsters in each panel); hopefully it will show up again this year maybe even with a $20 price tag too.

Yeah, I know the quality of this release is pretty bad, but it's currently the only way to see the movie and I love this movie and it was only eight bucks!

Not a fan of the Esca movie. The series is utterly fantastic, but the movie, has some cool things and the music rocks, but that is about it.

The movie makes some curious changes to the series. I don't remember it particularly well, only that I liked the series considerably more.

I've seen that set at my Walmart to, but all of their TV shows have their boxes crushed by their stupid spider wraps being on so tight, so I won't bother.

Just picked up The Third Man and the Witch. Both are blind buys I've heard good things about.

Went ahead and grabbed a region-modded Oppo UDP-203 before they're all gone, despite the fact that I haven't yet upgraded to a 4k TV. Then again, I had a Blu-ray player for a few years while I still had a standard-def CRT, so that's par for the course with me!

Which release of The Third Man? There's a few. The movie is phenomenal.

I own the BD released a few years ago, but I'm really hoping Criterion brings out that brand new 4K print I saw in theaters two years ago.

I had no idea they released 'Meet the Mummy' separately! I have it as part of the Mummy Legacy Collection Blu-Ray set.

I have no need for 4K yet, but its frustrating that it appears physical media is going up in price rather than down, as it should since its less expensive to produce, in effort to try to force people to purchase things digitally. Most Blu Ray sets (that had at least 2 formats if not more) could be purchased on release day for $20 or less. In the past year most Disney films (including Star Wars and MCU) are 22-25. Now I know that may not seem like a huge difference, but I'm on kind of a tight budget lately. In fact my list of unpurchased media seems to be growing and growing. I may end up waiting until black Friday and just getting a good bulk of them at that time. The sad part is, I very often enjoyed getting Target Exclusive sets, because while most retailers offer something different, it's the Target versions that usually offer the bonuses that appeal to me the most.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Disney is terrible when it comes to pricing. Most of my Disney blus end up coming from eBay because they so rarely go on sale. Their philosophy is "We're Disney. You'll buy it no matter what the price." and a lot of people do...and then there's "Hurry! Before we put it back in THE VAULT!!!" which gets most of everyone else.

Well I don't have any way to play 4K yet, but since the Blu-Rays are packed in, I might as well go for the best there is at this point so when I do get into 4K, I'm already prepared movie wise. I have no use for DVDs anyway, so I'd rather pay the $3-5 to get the better stuff.

As for Disney, my g/f is part of their movie club and the deals they have there are insane, so I can see why they don't want stores having great discounts on their movies. It sucks, but it's the perfect marketing strategy. Of course, it also helps that Amazon doesn't even seem to understand how release dates work either for Disney stuff.

Joined DMC recently too. You can kind of game the system pretty well. The standard deal is 5 movies for for $1 each but there are codes out there to get more (for a bit more) and then you have to buy 2 movies (with price tags of $19.95 or higher) in two years. With them having Star Wars and Marvel, there's some good pickings. So you can get 9 movies for under $10 each. And if you use the digital code for Disney Rewards, you usually get enough points to get a movie from there as well. You can then cancel your membership only to turn around and start over until you get all the movies you wanted from them. Also there's some exclusives you can only get through DMC, like Honey I Shrunk the Kid, Return to Oz, and the Mighty Joe Young remake.

And I got Black Panther through them, and I got it super early but didn't realize it. I thought the package was my dollar shave club razors and let it sit on my desk unopened for a few days.

Disney hates Amazon. They don't play well together.

Amazon doesn't do EVERYTHING else right and then SUDDENLY just ONLY screw up Disney...Disney hates Amazon's pre-order price guarantee and so doesn't work with them.

Yeh, it's pretty frustrating but this is greedy Disney which killed pre-orders on Amazon.

I got Black Panther and The Incredible Hulk both on 4K BD/BD/Digital combo.

Does that Disney movie club do the 4K stuff or not yet?
