Courtesy of the Disney Movie Club I picked up the 4K release of The Little Mermaid, the contrast in colors especially is impressive and the black levels are pretty solid. I've also finally purchased A Simple Favor and pre-ordered the Blu-Ray for The Favourite as well as the 4K for Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse.

Bought all these yesterday:
- American Gangster 2-disc unrated extended edition
- Blade Runner 5-disc complete collector's edition (Blu-Ray)
- Do the Right Thing (Blu-Ray)
- The Fisher King
- Halloween (1978)
- Halloween (2018, Blu-Ray)
- Infernal Affairs
- The Outsiders: The Complete Novel
- Stranger Things: Season 2 in the awesome VHS case
- Wizards

American Gangster was $1. Hard to argue with that price.

I think it's ridiculous that the one version of Blade Runner I want on Blu-Ray requires purchasing a 5-disc set, but whatever. Fine. For the record, my favorite is the international theatrical cut that was widely available on VHS before all the director's cuts and final editions ruined everything. Personally, I enjoy the narration and do not appreciate the edits on other versions I have seen.

Do the Right Thing will be interesting to watch on Blu-Ray after seeing the Criterion DVD years ago; it was quite the gorgeous transfer and I wonder it if will be more so on Blu-Ray.

Anyone who thinks The Outsiders was a bad adaptation of the book should seek out The Complete Novel; it adds nearly 15 minutes that really makes it a much better, more faithful rendition.

Wizards was in the Best Buy clearance bin for $3.99 and I'm not saying no to that deal.

Menace II Society was supposedly an extended directors' cut, yet it was no different than the movie I've been familiar with since the '90s.

So, I spent over $200 on what can mostly be called cinematic garbage.

Target is doing a Buy 2, Get 1 right now, so I got a couple things between the sale and my RedCard discount

Order 1 - $50 and change shipped
Knives Out 4K
Hustlers 4K
Midway 4K

I saw the first two in the theatres, enjoyed and figured I’d like to watch again soon. Heard Midway was good and probably a little ways away from movie channels still

Order 2 - A little under $16 shipped
Lady Bird Blu-Ray
I, Tonya Blu-Ray
The House Blu-Ray

Saw The House in theatres, wasn’t the best but a few laughs essentially for free with these two cheap ones I wanted to see

Another maybe garbage one but I kinda wanted to see was a few places had the 4K of the new Charlie’s Angels relatively cheap. I’d probably watch two hours of Naomi Scott staring at a spoon so when Amazon had a coupon to get the new 4K for $19.99, figure I’d watch and if I don’t like it, can probably sell it used online later
