    Just got back from target and they had a display up front selling DVDs for 5.50 even for the widescreen ones (normally all I see are 4:3). They had Titan AE special edition (widescreen DTS) Airheads, ED Tv ect.

    I picked up The Last Castle and The Peacemaker last week for $5.50 each. Both are widescreen anamorphic DVDs. While they don't have nearly as many titles available at this price as WalMart, the quality of the ones they do have is much higher.

    Any titles that aren't also at Walmart? I've seen all the ones mentioned so far.

    Target just started carrying the "Premier Episode" series...for $3.99 each! Here's the titles (from memory)

    Kung Fu
    Johnny Quest
    Flintstones
    Waltons
    Gilmore Girls
    Gilligans Island

    I seem to think that there were ten titles all together, but that's all I can remember right now. Each one had one episode (for the hour long shows) or two for the cartoons/sitcoms, except The Flintstones, which only ran 26 min. There is a $5 rebate coupon attached if you end up buying the complete box set.

    I remember seeing X-men 1.5 at our Target this weekend for $10. Seemed a pretty good price for anyone that has been lurking for this title to get cheap.

    Aaron, I had a quick glance at the new display at my Target tonight, but I don't remember a lot of the titles. I have all of them that I would have wanted. One title that I saw someone buying was "The Program". He was buying it because a lot of it was shot here and the game footage is at the stadium here (University of SC). I pointed out that it had the added benefit of me as an extra and he almost put it back.[​IMG]

    Were you in the freeway scene (that was cut from the movie during its theatrical run and has never been on any video release?)

    I picked up a few of the tv premiere DVD's:
    Gilmore Girls
    Kung Fu
    Jonny Quest

    I think it's a great idea and hope to see more, I'm going to pick up Gilligan too.

    Word of warning though, Jonny Quest is actual the series from 1996, I didn't like it much at all. The cover states "Two Classic Episodes from the Original TV Series" which is not true, the other 2 I have say "Original Pilot Episode" with the date it aired.

    Jesse,

    No, I wasn't in that scene, but I did see it in the theater before it was cut. I think that was a big fuss over nothing. I'm just in some of the stadium scenes, just a face in the crowd except for one scene where I'm closer in the background and only my midsection shows. Put in a long day and made all of $55, but it was fun.
