Was walkin around and up by the registers found a section with a bunch of $1.00 DVDs. I didn't take a look to see what they were cuz I was in a hurry, nothing worth buying and keeping I'm sure, but these would be good if you could use them to trade-in at Blockbuster for new releases. Anyone else see these?

The $1 movies at my WM were cartoon compilations, like baby Huey and old B&W Popeye episodes.

How does the trade-in work at Blockbuster??

Finally found these at my Wal-Mart(Bolingbrook, Illinois), near one of the registers.

I picked up the following $1.00 DVD's.

Cartoon Craze: Betty Boop & Friends: Somewhere in Dreamland
Cartoon Craze: Gabby & Friends: It's a Hap Hap Happy Day
Cartoon Craze: Superman: The Mechanical Monsters
The Flying Deuces with Laurel & Hardy


Running times:
Betty Boop = 67 minutes
Gabby & Friends = 63 minutes
Superman = 61 minutes
The Flying Deuces = 70 minutes

These come in thin plastic amaray style cases, No inserts. Each DVD contains chapters, animated menus and previews for other DVD's this company offers. They are from a company called Digiview Productions and there website is at Digiview .

These are better quality than the ones from Dollar Tree. Sharper picture and no digital artifacts that I could see. Surprisingly good for just a buck.

The Digiview DVD of "Beneath The 12 Mile Reef" does come from a great looking widescreen print, displayed in letterbox and well mastered and authored. It does look better than the Dollar Tree dollar DVDs, which I enjoy for the movies as well.

BTW, when it comes to widescreen prints on budget DVDs, I do not expect the companies to put an anamorphic print on them.

Wal-Mart also has another box that contains titles like Satanic Rites of Dracula, DOA and others. I picked up Satanic but haven't watched it yet (I'm not overly familiar with Hammer Horror Films, but with Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing for a buck how could I go wrong?)

I bought Murder On Flight 502. Not bad for a made for tv movie from the 70's. Decent video/audio quality.
Very good value.

Here is a list of the $1.00 DVDs that I have bought from Wal-Mart over the last few months.

Beneath the 12-Mile Reef
Black Brigade
Cartoon Craze: Betty Boop & Friends: Somewhere in Dreamland
Cartoon Craze: Felix the Cat: Neptune Nonsense
Cartoon Craze: Gabby & Friends: It's a Hap Hap Happy Day
Cartoon Craze: Superman: The Mechanical Monsters
Cartoon Craze: Superman: Terror on the Midway
Cartoon Craze: The 3 Stooges and Friends: Play Safe
Drums in the Deep South
A Farewell to Arms
The Flying Deuces
His Girl Friday
Murder on Flight 502


Of the above, the ones I liked the most were the Superman Cartoons, Drums in the Deep South, His Girl Friday and Murder on Flight 502. Was disappointed that they changed the music on the 3 Stooges cartoon and that the Felix the Cat toons were not the ones I grew up with on TV. I was most disappointed in Farewell to Arms, a boring war movie, but that's my opinion.


From the previews on the DVD's here are others that the company is offering:

Death Sentence
David and Goliath
A Star is Born
The Scarlet Pimpernel
The Scarlet Letter
The Boy in the Plastic Bubble
The Big Trees
Little Princess
Cartoon Craze: Popeye: Popeye Meets Sinbad the Sailor
Cartoon Craze: Popeye: Popeye Meets Ali Baba and his 40 Thieves
Cartoon Craze: Superman/ Popeye: Cookin' with Gags
Cartoon Craze: Casper and Friends: Ants in the Pants
Gulliver's Travels (Animated Movie)
Cartoon Craze: Hunky & Spunky/ Molly the Cow: Picnic Panic
The Man who Knew Too Much
The Satanic Rites of Dracula
The Swap
Angel and the Bad Man
The Proud and the Damned
The Terror
The White Warrior
The Four Deuces
D.O.A.

I haven't seen any new additions lately though to the $1.00 DVD box, which at my Wal-Mart was moved from the front register to inside the Electronice Department a few weeks ago.

There is a colection of Tom & Jerry shorts floating around in these crowds for 99 cents, not the cat and mouse but the two hobos. Also Mel-O-Toons, and a Van Beuren collections as well.

My Wal-Mart put all these Dollar DVDs in the clearance area.

They had them for about a week at 50 cents each, then all of them were gone. I don't think they sold all of them cause they weren't moving at all.

So now my Wal-Mart has none of these Dollar DVDs.

If you're interested in buying these, better do so before your store pulls them.
