    Still think 'America's Sweethearts' blew...

    Godzilla is the newer print run without 3D-ish slip insert.

    Are you sure, or did they just move it? Ours was moved last week to a different location.

    I had taken a quick stroll around the store and didn't see it, they do have a small section of shelving with 5.88 titles, but that was there even prior to the bin. I'll have to take anouther look around. Found a few good deals in that bin!

    They'll have to pay me to search through that bin again!! What marketing genius thought of that?

    My main problem with the $5.88 bin is that you really have to be careful that you're getting an OAR presentation.

    For example, I was "rooting around" in the bin last week, and found "The Last Action Hero" starring the governor of California. This isn't one of my favorite movies or anything, but for $5.88, what the hey? The trouble is, every single copy in the bin was "Fool's Screen" only!

    I've found the $7.50 bin to be far more satisfying. Over the course of the past few months, I've picked up all four Lethal Weapons, the only two Batman movies that I wanted, Rambo's One and Two (Three was in the $5.88 bin); and the three Rockys' that I wanted. All of these were "bare bones", but included nice anamorphic Widescreen transfers. (Well, except for Rocky II; but at least it was Widescreen.) Not bad for $7.50!
