    YMMV...it is Big Lots, after all. I purchased a number of them earlier from Deep Discount DVD when they were buy 2, get 1 at $5.98 each and thought that was a hell of a deal. If anyone finds Tube (a Korean film) or Monsieur Ibrahim, let me know...hopefully we can work something out. I've given up on finding them locally. I have picked up the following for $2.00 each:

    - Bon Voyage
    - Broken Wings
    - Dark Blue World
    - Das Experiment
    - Happy Times
    - I Capture The Castle
    - Le Dernier Combat
    - The Luzhin Defence
    - Mr. Sardonicus
    - Pauline and Paulette
    - Raising Victor Vargas
    - Son of the Bride
    - Twin Falls Idaho

    Good luck!

    Who would have the time and stamina to stand in the dvd section in Big Lots and record all those titles?[​IMG]

    My BigLots had a whopping 10 or so DVDs in stock...a few PD TV shows, Twin Falls Idaho and a couple of martial arts titles... :-(

    Between the two stores in my area I picked up 6 titles:

    The Late Show ($5)
    Subway ($2)
    Manny & Lo ($2)
    Desert Bloom ($2)
    Eat a Bowl of Tea ($3)
    Raising Victor Vargas ($2)

    The coolest thing about this sale is that most of these movies have just gone out of print, and we've been given a final chance to pick them up--at rock-bottom prices. Unfortunately, the ones I wanted most ("Vanya on 42nd Street," "Safe," "Obsession," "Fat City," "The Dreamlife of Angels," and "Happy Times") were not to be found. I wonder if Big Lots will be getting any more of these titles in stock. I'll be keeping tabs.

    Found Tadpole today. However, it is a Canadian release from Alliance Atlantis. I've never bought any import DVD's before, so I was wondering if I can expect the same quality as on the American release.

    I just picked up the 2-disc SE of Memento for $3.
    New, sealed copy, not PV.

    Yup. Bear in mind that Tadpole was shot on prosumer high-def video and tends to look quite rough in parts. But an excellent John Ritter film, nonetheless.
