Still waiting for the Blu-ray bins
I picked up several from that $3 bin: We're No Angels, Stepford Wives, and There will be blood.
Btw, watched Master & Commander not long ago and was floored by it. Excellent film. I just bought a new sound system for my PC, a z-5500. I'm thinking overkill, but I'll try some things out on it.
Oh yeah? Why's that?
Because blu ray is still, even if its only been out for a short time, a new format. Prices have yet to drop on the format and you're asking for bargain bin boxes? Thats won't happen for several more years yet.
Prices have started to drop. Wal-Mart's already selling $10-13 cheapies (that double-dip of "Casino Royale" is a good example), they just haven't put them in a bin yet.
And why is it so unreasonable to "ask" for a bargain bin box? Are you really vexed at the suggestion? /img/vbsmilies/htf/confused.gif"> C'mon, lighten up a little, Mark. Let us BD nuts dream a little.
That's an awesome name, by the way.
[SIZE= smaller]I'm having to upgrade my power supply from 325w to 700w. The sound card I added, along with the video card I have, are too much for that stock psu. So I'm easing off on testing that z-5500. The few times I tried it out were spectacular. Glad I spent the money. The subwoofer is particularly jarring when something happens, like when King Kong is fighting the t-rexes. I'm still only using 5.1. I have an optical cable coming with the power supply so I can use DTS. I expect to lose several pairs of socks in the process. Is there an on-going Walmart packs of sports-socks bargain thread? [/SIZE]
Anyway, this is a Walmart thread.
The $3 stuff is still there in my Walmart but they moved it to the end of a row. Nothing new added so it isn't like Big Lots where I can find new stuff every time I go. They have a bunch of Avatar anime. Not sure if that stuff is fit to buy? I've never seen it.
It's no $5 bin...but my local Wal-Mart has the following Blu-ray titles on special sale (on an endcap display):
$10.00: Chaos (Statham), Cutthroat Island, Evil Dead II, Halloween, Midnight Movie, The Ninth Gate (Depp), See No Evil (Kane), Terminator 2 (Schwarzennegger).
$14.96: Water Horse, Across the Universe, The Big Hit, Striking Distance, Untraceable, Starship Troopers, Hancock, xXx-State of the Union, Into the Blue, Dogma, 21, The Holiday, Talledega Nights, Superbad, A Knight's Tale.
A few days ago, I was in Wal Mart and they had a number of horror movies on sale for $5. Off the top of my head, they had Happy Birthday To Me (the new one with the original score) and Hostel Part II. For $15, they also had the Scream three pack (with all three movies) and a Halloween three pack (with Halloween parts 6, 7 and 8).
In Blu-ray, Travis? Or, DVD?
Sorry, just DVD. I don't think you have to worry about Halloween: The Curse Of Michael Myers hitting Blu-ray for quite a while.

The Wally World in my area has seasons 2 - 5 of Law & Order for $ 9.98 each!/img/vbsmilies/htf/crazy.gif"> Needless to say I got one of each this week!
My Walmart now has some $4 (!) shelf displays which I was completely unable to ignore...YMMV.
I got 'Bridges of Madison County' SE (!) and 'We Own the Night' (2007). Not bad...
I also fished a 'Risky Business' SE out of the $5 bin. Nice!
I was in Wal-Mart yesterday, and they had a display of Warner box sets for $15!
Batman: The Motion Picture Anthology
The Marlon Brando Collection
The Essential Steve McQueen Collection
The Complete James Dean Collection
Western Classics Collection
There may have been more at one time, because the cardboard display was half empty.
Picked this up today! =)
Has anyone else seen stickers labeled "Promo" on various cheapie DVDs at Walmart lately? Does it mean something other than a promo price?
Yeah. I've seen 'em, Ed.
I'm pretty sure that means they were part of that store's inventory of REAL cheap stuff on Black Friday and it didn't sell so it is now back on a regular shelf with a sticker that they must not be able to get off. /img/vbsmilies/htf/laugh.gif
If you notice, some of those big "PROMO" stickers are green, some are purple. They were using the colors during the Black Friday sale to distinguish the different prices of the various titles.
Ah, I see. Thanks Mike.
I haven't contributed to this thread in ages (nor the Big Lots thread) but I stumbled upon this sale at a local Bed Bath and Beyond last night and thought people still looking for really cheap deals on DVDs might be interested.
Nothing groundbreaking, obviously. But thought you guys might like to know.
