The bin at our local store just got:
Talk Radio (one of the best movies of the last 20 years, snagged it immediately...solid transfer and audio)
Daylight SE
Total Recall SE (a steal)
Basic Instinct SE
Hot Shots Part Deux (Can't seem to find part 1 in the bin anymore though...I'd like to have both)
Cop & A Half (Burt Reynolds and a cute little black kid in all of it's OAR Fonz directed hijinks glory!)
The Anchor Bay Hulk 2-Pack with the cheesy Daredevil guested and Thor guested Incredible Hulk TV movies
And a lot more I can't think of...I know I am forgetting some new Universal titles. With the help of Universal, Fox, and Artisan, the bin has been restored to the treasure trove it was back when they first brought it out. I implore you all to pick up Talk Radio.

Nice job Nick
I will be on the lookout for Talk Radio and Hot Shots Part Deux
Luckily found Hot Shots a couple of weeks ago.
There were none in the Wal Mart by my house but MANY in the WalMart across town

Visited a Wal Mart Near Princeton, NJ today and of course, I routed through the $5.50 bin. I bought Short Circuit (Ally Sheedy) and Brewster's Millions (John Candy).
I saw a bunch of other titles also new to the bin including:
Total Recall (Arnold Schwarzenegger)
Daylight (Sylvester Stallone)
Casual Sex (Lea Thompson)
Evolution (Seann Willam Scott)
The Lonely Guy (Steve martin)
That's all I can remember right now. I will check out another tomorrow.

Managed to find 2 of the recent Fox/Fortune Star titles (the ones mentioned last by Brian) in the (Canadian) bin, and Hot Shots. Also got Tapeheads from the bin, don't think it's been mentioned yet. Saw a trailer for it on something I watched recently, looked not bad at all, has Cusack and Robbins. All ana-WS.

not sure if this title was mentioned earlier but when I grabbed Hot Shots last night there were a couple copies of "Robin Williams, Live on Broadway" in the bin...pretty funny show, one I don't regret buying for $15 when it came out not that long ago!

Dropped in another Wal mart in my travels today. I saw that WB added two more titles to the $5.50 DVD bin:
My Giant (Billy Crystal)
Valentine (Denise Richards)
I also saw a huge pallot from WB with about 32 different titles at $7.00 each, too many to name.

Now I kinda feel pressured...hope you guys like it. If not, well, I'm not sending your 5.50 back! There seem to be multiple copies of The Twilight Zone Volume 2 in our local bin now.

Yea, I saw those Twilight Zones also...just wish they would have had Vol. 1. Fortunatley I decided to go to a different Walmart than I usually do. A SUPERcenter. They had all of the 5.50 dvds on a giant 4 sided bookshelf. It was soooo easy to see what they had and I didn't have to dig thru heaps of crap to get to anything.

Picked up Ravenous in the $6.88 Cdn bin yesterday. Always liked this film. Too bad it's not anamorphic....but for the price, I decided to grab it.

New additions to the bin near me:
Ricochet
Kiss the Girls
Evolution
Anatomy
The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle
Standing in the Shadows of Motown (2-disc set)
Plan 9 From Outer Space (an Image disc that includes a circa Ed Wood documentary)
I picked up Rocky and Bullwinkle and Motown. I'm not a huge horror fan, but Anatomy did pique my interest. Is it worth a shot?

Saw and picked up 2 new $5.50 DVD titles:
Nothing in Common (Tom Hanks, Jackie Gleason - Directed by Garry Marshall) (Col-Tristar "flipper" disc. If you want to get this flick, I suggest picking it up now as Col-Tristar is famous for dropping the WS side of the disc once it hits the dump bin)
Live From Baghdad (Michael Keaton, Helena Bonham Carter) (This is an HBO movie and I think it is exceptional. I HIGHLY recommend this movie and is definitely worth $5.50!)
Also saw The Forsaken making its dump bin DVD debut in the Wal-Mart Bin in NJ AND all of MGM's MIDNIGHT MOVIES DVDs are in a cardboard dump bin for only $5.00 each! All of these titles were recently place on moratorium. I recommend The Beast Within, Motel Hell, Mars Needs Women, Invaders From Mars and The Pit and the Pendulum.
Happy digging!
