On October 23 I picked up Shade (Sylvester Stallone) and 187 (Samuel L. Jackson) in the $5.50 bin. This is the first time I saw 187 in the bin in NJ.
And I agree... Shade is the FASTEST budget price drop ever. The DVD came out on 5/25/04 and its already $5.50!

I rememeber a faster one. From Justin to Kelly took about a month before it was in the bin. Then there were those Hammer releases and Fox Asian series which went straight to the bin when they were released.

A new Wal-Mart just opened around the corner from me...so now I have a reason to stick my nose into this thread. images/smilies/wink.gif
The store near me had some surprisingly OK titles in their bin, including Hot Shots!, Hot Shots Part Deux, Phantom of the Paradise and...From Justin to Kelly.
I'm not a big fan of the WM, but I'll stop in from time to time. Cheap DVDs are that enticing.

WB has temporarily SLASHED the prices of 70 DVD titles. These include Vegas Vacation WS, Training Day, About Schmidt, Police Academy 2-7, Blade Runner and many more! You can check the list out here:

J & R Music World has them for sale at $5.99. Unfortunately they have a shipping charge, however there is no sales tax if you live outside NYC. I just ordered 12 of these. Check 'em out.

Thanks Eric.

I have heard of this movie but don't really know anything about it, and admit I got it because of the cast (Depp/Brando/Dunaway). Was it a popular movie when released? IOW, is an anamorphic transfer likely, or would it be waaaay on the backburner? Thanks.

Same here.

I just wish the "dump bin" wasn't literally a bin. With 4 or 5 people around it, it's particularly hard to dig through. Why can't they simply put it on a shelf with spines out -- no need to alphabetize. I hate how the cases get all dinged up in a bin.
Wish I could find "Still Crazy". Did find "Talk Radio" and "Anatomy SE".

The best option is to go there around 4 in the morning. The workers are quite use to me coming in there and making a mess looking for things.

Everytime I see L.A. Story I get excited until I recall it isn't anamorphic. It's been quite sometime since I've seen it and otherwise would be one I'd pick up immediately if it were.

For some reason my Walmart dumped a few dozen copies of Spiderman WS in the bin. I even asked the employee if they were indeed 5.50 and she said yes. As always YMMV.
