Titan: AE is $5.99 at Wal-Mart. I have been waiting to get this movie. I've never seen it before, and it's a pretty decent sci-fi animated movie. It's widescreen and contains a dts soundtrack.

If you don't have it, I suggest you get it, I certainly rate this one as one of those impressive DTS sound tracks. Oh by the way it does work with a 6.1 setup as well. For 5.99 that's a steal.

Actually, it's $5.88. Check the bottom of my Weekly Roundup for a bunch of other titles added to Wal-Mart's $5.88 bin, and expect some others to be added before this Friday.

I'd heard about the soundtrack on this one. The film didn't impress me to pay full price, but $6 for a killer soundtrack.. tempting

I've renamed this thread and made it an ongoing thread so people can alert others of new entries into the Wal-Mart $5.88 bargain bin.

Since Patrick is helping us put all our eggs in one basket...or one Wal-Mart $5.88 bin as it were.....
here's more info from this week's Round Up. Starting with Dave Lambert's complete info:
Additionally, my Wal-Mart has added these titles to the $5.88 bin!
Pretty Baby, Hunt for the Red October, Trading Places, The First Wives Club, The Out of Towners (1970 Jack Lemmon), Last of the Red Hot Lovers, National Lampoon's Repli-Kate, Hong Kong 1941, Titan AE, Hard Cash, & The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss.
Also, others this week discussed finding Ford Fairlane and Black Sunday in their local bins.
Thanks Patrick! This will be a great place to find all the latest info on the W-M bargains! I made a special trip to find Black Sunday a couple of weeks ago when I heard about it. A blind buy for me, but based on the recommendations of so many others $5.88 for a new release was too good to pass up!

A side note: I've got a few different Wal-Marts near me and all have rather hap-hazard $5.88 bins.....except for one. The personnel in that store keep the discs all standing neatly on edge so someone can quickly and easily read all the titles on the top edge of the dvd case. Eliminates the need to root or burrow through the bin to see what's in there. Or maybe that's part of the fun for some.

Right you are. I should have known, because Wal-Mart rarely ends their price in .99. Actually I did purchase this flick and it's well worth the money. It's no Iron Giant, but the quality is much better than some of Don Bluth's other animated movies(especially the MGM movies). It's non-stop action and special effects which is what a lot of guys out there like. The voices provided to the movie are Matt Damon(Good Will Hunting, The Rainmaker), Bill Pullman (Independance Day, While You Were Sleeping, Casper), John Leguizamo (Sid in "Ice Age"), Nathan Lane (Timon in "The Lion King" and Snow Bell in "Stuart Little"), Janeane Garofalo ("Mystery Men","The Truth About Cats & Dogs"), and Drew Barrymore ("Ever After", "E.T.", "Riding in Cars with Boys").

Good idea to do this, Patrick.
The bad news, guys, is that I've been told that the $5.88 bin may be going away come Feb or Mar of next year.
No explanation was given other than the hypothesis that studios would stop providing the product.
I think this is a weird concept, because DVDs are getting OLDER and that there will therefore be more old crap to mark down to this price point. Also, all of their competitors have similar displays at similar prices now.
In my opinion, the only way the $5.88 bin could go away is to replace it with a $4.88 or a $3.88 bin! But my sources seem convinced that for whatever reason, it IS going away at winter's end.

I think this going away is related to the recent story about the studios being concerned about discs getting too cheap and people expecting dirt cheap prices on everything--and certainly being available for $5.88 on street date would contribute to that expectation. The Hollywood studios are probably the only entities that can stand up to Wal-Mart, since it's not as if WM can go to China and get the DVDs there (at least not legally). What ever happened to their American-Made policy, anyway?

The studios have no reason to complain about the $5.88 bin though. They're getting as much for those as the would if Wal-Mart were selling them for $10 and selling more in the process.

I saw:

Ford Fairlane

Hong Kong 1941

Blind Date

The Pick-Up Artist

National Lampoon's Repli-Kate

Titan AE

Jordan Max

Lassie

Baywatch Wedding(w/15 extra minutes never before seen Yeehaw!!)

The Last Seduction

Hard Cash(I think this was only full screeen)

Picked up the first three. I'll check out another WM tomorrow.

I just checked dvdpricesearch and their best price for Blind Date was $19.14 - I wonder if WM made a mistake on that title?

There are 2 Repli-kate DVDs:

National Lampoon's Repli-Kate 9.99 MSRP

and Repli-kate: Special Edition 24.95 MSRP

I have no idea if they are 2 different movies(i don't think they are) but they both have Eugene Levy and Ali Landry in them.

My local walmart's 5.88 bin has Price's Last Man On Earth and Night of the Living Dead. The NOTLD is in a "hollywood classics" packaging. Does anyone know if this is a widescreen version?
