Went back in today for a couple of things we forgot yesterday. Since I went in alone I could take time to actually look at the DVDs. Still no Halloween DVDs but I made a list of the Christmas titles. They are *all* $5/each.
$5 Christmas DVD:
Beethoven's Christmas Adventure
Bells of St. Mary's, The (the OOP release - new DVD & BR releases are coming from Olive Films)
Blues Clues: Blues Room: Holiday Wishes
Cricket on the Hearth
Donkey's Christmas Shrektacular
Four Christmases (proudly indicates both FS/WS on the disk)
Home Alone 2
Home for the Holiday's
Mr. Bean's Holiday (WS)
Munster's Scary Little Christmas, The
Opus 'n Bill: A Wish for Wings that Work
Polar Express, The
Rudolph & Frosty's Christmas in July (Rankin/Bass)
a couple of multi-film sets for $5 each:
A String of Family Favorites: Tom & Jerry: A Nutcracker Tale/'Twas the Night Before Christmas (Rankin/Bass)/The Polar Express (WS)
Double Feature: Four Christmases/Fred Claus (both WS)
and *one* Blu-Ray for $5
I've been somewhat interested in Four Christmases and The Polar Express in the past so picked up the 2 multi-film sets because the other titles lessen the impact of the newly inflated prices. I've never read or heard reviews for Fred Claus so it's a mystery. I already own 'Twas the Night... on another Rankin/Bass set so the Tom & Jerry title is the sole extra. The grandkids like them so I figure it'll go over OK. And honestly I'm really on the fence about Four Christmases & The Polar Express as reviews seem fairly mixed.
The gem in the bunch IMHO is The Bells of St. Mary's with Bing Crosby and INgred Bergman. That's one I'd never gotten around to purchasing before it went OOP and prices rose. I was glad to see it get a new release from Olive but will absolutley take the original release at $5 so a copy of that one came home.
I'm *still* trying to figure out why Mr. Bean's Holiday is in a Christmas grouping as it's about a *vacation*! I'm thinking it must have been someone from the US that doesn't understand British vernacular so read it as a American would, see "Holiday" in the title so think it's about Christmas, and included it in the batch.
