^Thanks!

 

That almost looks like it could be some BL overstock.  The last time I saw that many copies of Goldmember was a few years ago at BL when I picked one up for $1.  I overpaid by about $.99... :D

Went to BL this evening.  The dry spell continues.  I believe this is the longest time for which there have been no "new" titles at BL.  This in spite of last Sunday's sale flyer showing new titles.

I picked up another martial arts title.  Heroes of the East. 

 

Not much at my store either.  I'm populating my horror shelve with amazon and getting better stuff.  Well, I hope better.. .lol 

 

I keep hoping walmart's $5 bin will become $3.  Not sure why they haven't gone that way yet.  I did see a display of $3 titles in the back near the TVs.  Nothing worth a special trip. MC stuff, like the 2 movies sets.  I just remember the dog movie Bingo (which I'd actually like) and the film Spaced Invaders (which I ordered in a larger set from amazon), each on different sets.  I know both those are on much larger sets with other similar films and not much more.

Yeah, I really don't understand why WM didn't drop the $5 bin to $3 long ago.  However, I do come up with title every 3-4 months or so. 

 

Gotta watch out for those MC "sets" as they are the kings of repackaging titles in multiple sets.

 

I was using Amazon quite a bit until they upped the shipping by a buck.  That extra dollar makes me think twice about certain titles now which really feels strange as it's only a dollar.  Still there are titles I'd purchase for $.01-$1.99 with $2.99 shipping that I'll not bother with at $3.99 shipping.  I currently have a title in my cart that's ~$7 and was about to make the purchase when they changed the shipping rate.  I've been holding off since then because it's now ~$11 instead of ~$10.  I kept thinking many of the vendors (especially the larger ones) would drop their prices a bit to offset the extra shipping charge but that's not happened.

Oh man, same here with that extra buck at amazon.  Single movie releases suffer the most.  I wish the marketplace would sell stuff at negative numbers. lol (totally serious about that !)   -$1.00 and I've be all over some of that stuff I'm trying to collect for my horror movie madness coming up in a few weeks (I start in September).  It does make spending that magic $25 more attractive though.  Sellers that aren't included in that deal suffer the most.

 

I got the Spaced Invaders set from amazon for $4.95 but it includes Holy Man, some Eddie Murphy flick.  Both sets (smaller one too) include something called Kazzam with Shaq.  Spaced is a very fun kid's alien movie set during Halloween.  I've never seen the other 2. 

 

Seems like I picked up Curious George from that bin.  I'm sure now it will appear in a multi movie set as well.  I can't remember what I got before that.  maybe a set with 2 Mark Twain things.  Tommy Kelly's tom Sawyer (echo bridge, great image but plays jerky so not recommended) and Huck finn (with a old looking Ron Howard, haven't watched yet).  But before that it's a blur.

Holy Man - a rather "blah" Eddie Murphy flick.  Watch it once so you can say you've seen it.  That's enough.  I've never seen Spaced Invaders or KazaamSpaced Invaders got a slightly higher IMDB rating than Holy Man but it has a more interesting and fun sounding premis in spite of Roger Ebert giving *it* 1 star and Holy Man 2 (although based on his review I really think I'd like the film and he pretty much says he would have as a kid but as a adult critic can't stand it).  I may look out for that one "just because".  Kazaam sounds pretty bad and I don't care for Shaq's "acting" skills so I'd probably give it a total miss (Ebert gave it a 1 star review and it sounds deserved).

Ouch.  Although I'm not sure Ebert is the best judge of silly comedies.  Spaced is definitely silly. I don't think I liked it originally, but it definitely grew on me.  I'd put it a few steps below Killer Klowns from Outer Space.   Just got to be in the right mood.

We had one a few years back and it closed.  The two nearest stores are 30 minutes away.  This one is right on my way to work!

My town got it's first Chick Fil' A built right in front of our only BL.  Now it's extra crowded all the time.  Oh well... at least I can get a piece of Chicken on an overly sweet bun and some waffle fries with more salt on them than the Atlantic and a $3 shake on my way out of BL.

My store had the Babe double feature for $5.  The pig films.  Good pig!  :)   Babe is in full screen.  Babe Pig in the City is Widescreen.  That's the only reason I didn't buy.  Love both films.  a shame.

 

I did get a copy of Thirst, the odd looking vamp flick.  I didn't see the original Hitcher, which I hope to get.  I'll look better next time.

Finally some "new" stuff.  It was sparse but I found a few from this reported list:

 

$3
Little Caesar - Robinson
FBI Story - James Stewart
Gypsy - Rosalind Russell/Natalie Wood/Karl Malden

The Palm Beach Story - Claudette Colbert/Joel McCrea

$5
One Flew Over The Cuckoo Nest - Jack Nicholson (1 disk snapper - WM has had the 2 disc LE for $5 in the dump bin)
Horse Feathers - Marx Brothers
Monkey Business - Marx Brothers
The Women - Joan Crawford/Rosalind Russell/Paulette Goddard/Joan Fontain and more
Winchester 73 - James Stewart
The Spoilers - John Wayne/Marlene Dietrich
Yankee Doodle Dandy - James Cagney (2-Disc)
Great Ziegfeld - William Powell/Myrna Loy
Key Largo - Bogart/Bacall
Mother of Tears - Unrated

 

I picked up Winchester 73, The Spoilers, and Gypsy. I'd have purchased Yankee Doodle Dandy, FBI Story and Little Caesar if I'd seen them.  I already own the rest.

I still need to upgrade my Cuckoos nest.  Planning a blu ray...  I really miss that film but all I have is the original lacking DVD.

Mine had nothing much.  :(  

 

Walmart had a display behind the computer games (that's like The Sticks of wallyworld!!) and there were  afew horror things in there. Including a set of Darkshadows episodes, Thale, some zombie stuff...  quite a few MGM midnight movie doubles with different labels than before since they don't have the nice info on the back.  I got the one with 2 Dr. Goldfoot movies.  Also, a set of cheesy looking Urban Exploits from the 70s and Season 1 of The Cosby Show, all for $5 each.  Also got a set with Christine, The Seventh Sign, The Blob (which I already have) and Fright Night original (which I already have) for $10.  All this from Walmart, not big lots.  Worth a look if you happen to be in there or are missing some MGM MM. 

 

On Cosby, I was wondering if Shout! if ever going to do a full series on that.  I guess $5 is not too much to risk.

The staff at my store said there is a 20% off Friends & Family event coming up this weekend. In the past it's been Saturday evening with your Rewards card, then Sunday for everyone. With the changes to the Rewards program, I don't know if that's still the case or not.

 

Nothing really new at my store. Maybe a few titles but nothing really exciting (and none of those listed above).

Are you sure those were MGM releases?  The Dr. Goldfoot I got last year is on the TGG Direct label.  They've been re-releasing *lots* of the old Midnight Movie titles.  There are a couple of new 4 film sets that each have a never-before-on-DVD title.
