    I also saw lots of the following

    Ravenous

    Snake Eyes

    Eye for an Eye

    Children of a Lesser God

    Flashback

    These have basically been mentioned already but thought I would throw the word in as well.

    I was intrigued by an earlier post that said Wild Things in the bin was MAR. I had purchased a copy just a couple weeks ago and it was OAR.

    Well, I checked the bin tonight where I got my copy and two copies I found were, indeed, both MAR. That's too bad. Who wants to miss any portion of the scenery in that movie? :b

    I just thought I'd mention what I got at a Canadian Wal-Mart today from the bin. These are Cdn$6.88, so about US$5.30, and I'm mainly only mentioning what I got since many movies I'd never heard of and they don't stick in my mind. All I got are WS anamorphic.

    Airplane!

    Ford Fairlane

    The Virgin Suicides

    The Truth About Cats & Dogs

    Freddy Got Fingered

    Yeah I know, FGF and FF are not so good, but since Gigli wasn't there yet to fill my lousy movie quota...

    They had a very large selection, one I didn't get but saw was Outland (with Connery), think I might like it, and Body Snatchers, seemingly well thought of in its own right, but generally not that well-reviewed. I must admit this is the first time they've ever had anything in the bargain bin that interested me at all.

    Airplane! is in the bin? [​IMG] In Canada? Has anyone else seen it in the bin? In the U.S.? This is one of those titles I have been wanting for a long time, but I keep seeing in BB or CC sales like 2 for $15, but there's never another title I want to get. I think right now its on the shelf at BB for $14.99

    Yup, Airplane! That's the one I saw first, and once I grabbed it, figured I might as well take a look for more. I think the bargain bin of *name-brand* studio releases is new here, I go to WM about once a week and have never seen it before, usually their cheap stuff is incredible junk. The titles in the bargain bin that I recognised are not ones that we know of a new version coming out soon. Compare that to the Cdn$11.66/14.66/17.66 titles there: many of these have already been re-released, or will imminently be, so buyer-beware there, but not so in the real bargain bin it seems.

    Lucky you, Craig!!! That's why I want to hear from any state-siders if they've seen Airplane! in the bin.

    I know I haven't.

    Picked these up last week:

    Ford Fairlane

    Mute Witness (!!)

    The Truman Show

    Not too bad for 5 minutes of losing dignity.

    Just picked up Peggy Sue Got Married. Both OAR and MAR on same disc.

    Also saw American Sweethearts with Julia Roberts. 2 different covers, but is the same.

    They also have a lot of TV shows, such as Bonanza and Ozzie & Harriet, 2 disc sets for $5.50. 20 episodes. From a company called Platinum.

    How are these TV discs from Platinum? Good quality, original music? Are they worth it?

    Douglas, those Platinum TV releases are the same public domain garbage that's been running around from about 50 zillion companies forever now. None of them seem better than any others.
    This may be the best hope for semi-decent releases of the "PD" stuff, until official releases from the proper studios come along. I betcha these end up in the $5.50 bin, too.
    Hey...is it time to rename this thread to the new price point? [​IMG]

    Has anyone seen Children of a Lesser God in the Fort Lauderdale area? I just struck out at Oakland Park and University and McNab and Rock Island. I bought The Buddy Holly Story and Peggy Sue Got Married and saw plenty of copies of those.

    Everytime I go by the bin, it's like a feeding frenzy. Oh well, there seems to be at least one or two good deals worth fighting for. I picked up Nine Months from the bin Friday night. We had never seen it before. It turned out to be quite good.

    Even though it's an old title, The Towering Inferno is still available at my local WalMart.

    My Wal-Mart also has some of the $5.50 titles, in the Electronics department and some more outside on another display on shelves.

    So check out your local Wal-Mart and you may find the same thing and might score a DVD that isn't so dinged or damaged, and won't have to go bin diving for the title you want.
