Saw Buffy the Vampire Slayer and C.H.U.D. on the $5.99 rack at Best Buy. I assume these titles will make it to the bin at some point as well.

Ticker is unbelievably bad, but everything you'd expect in an Albert Pyun movie, so you might enjoy it on that level. Everyone is slumming in this movie, Dennis Hopper, Tom Sizemore, Peter Greene and expecially Big Steven Seagal, who seems to have more scenes sitting down behind desks and things than in any previous movie.

Somewhat new arrival:
Antitrust (2000, 16x9): not expecting too much from this one, just hope it's at least dumb fun with good A/V.
It also seems to have some decent extras.

In NJ... Picked up "Kiss the Girls" & "Double Jeopardy" (Ashley Judd thrillers). Both 16 x 9 WS, Both 5.1. Definitely worth $5.50 each.
Also picked up Truth or Consequences, N.M starring Kiefer Sutherland & Vincent Gallo. Its a "flipper" from Columbia which means now that its in the bin, they'll probably lose the WS version from the one side.

I saw the The Governess starring Minnie Driver & Tom Wilkinson in the bin (in NJ). Once again, Col / Tristar HE has stripped the 16 x 9 WS version from the disc leaving only the "Full Screen Edition", as Col has so eloquently listed as part of the "Special Features". Col sux for doing this!
Has anyone else seen Coneheads in the bin other than our friend in California?

Edit: Noticed Wall Street, Diner, and Logans Run in another WM's bin, picked up the first 2 (have the other).

I found THE POSTMAN STRIKES BACK, part of Fox's latest wave of Hong Kong titles, in the U.S. Wal-Mart Bin for $5.50 on the weekend. The damnd thing was filled to overflowing, so I didn't dig very far. I'm hoping the other four titles from this wave might turn up there as well.

Somebody should send them an email or letter about overfilling the bins. Makes me not want to shop or dig. Its just too much work.

The bin at the Wal-Mart here was practically empty. I asked the clerk and she said that they are not going to be filling it for a while, so what you see out there is all they have. Then two days ago I went in and the bin was overflowing. I rummaged through only to find out that it was filled with nothing but Python, The Last Seduction, At Close Range, Suicide Kings and Iron Eagle. I was dumbfounded by how many copies of those movies they had. No other titles but those!

Today the bin was overflowing with animated Spawn (1,2,3) discs. The post by Cees Alons reminded me: I got Rustler's Rhapsody from the bin. And though I didn't find the Coneheads somebody was asking about, I did get Airheads a while back.

I found 2 more WWE titles:
History of Wrestlemania I-IX
Shawn Michaels: Boyhood Dream
I picked up both of them but haven't watched them.
They are both listed as being 2 hrs long.
Michaels disk features 8 matches all from 1996.
