    I know this has been mentioned in David Lambert's weekly round-up over the past few weeks, but thought I would really encourage HTF members to make a trip by Target and check it out...

    There are several good titles, and excellent discs available- many which I paid $20 for just a short while ago...

    I picked up CREEPSHOW, which isn't an amazing film- but a personal cult classic from my youth. For $5.99, the disc is anamorphic and surprisingly good; and for some reason at the register it scanned at $4.99! Bonus!

    In addition, I saw several titles I already own, like:

    PEE WEES BIG ADVENTURE (with commentary by Tim Burton & Paul Reubens along with an isolated score/commentary from Danny Elfman!)- anamorphic and 5.1 to boot!

    SUICIDE KINGS (with commentary by director Peter O'Fallon along with some interesting "alternate endings" that were shot for test audiences. From a film making perspective, and excellent disc that [inadvertently] reveals quite a bit about the modern studio approach to film making)- anamorphic and 5.1!

    I would suggest stopping by your local Target and seeing what they have in their $5.99 section. Some discs there might be borderline- but most are anamorphic and about the same price as a rental! Heck, even SECOND SPIN will buy Pee-Wee from you for $6 used if you realized you don't want it, so you could break even!

    Didn't realize Pee Wee's BA was now so cheap, will have to squeeze in a trip to Target soon.

    Or if you aren't in a hurry and want to avoid sales tax (except in IL), DeepDiscountDVD.com has PEE WEE and CREEPSHOW for $5.88 shipped.

    Note that selection DOES vary by store. PeeWee and Creepshow are NOT at my local Target, though they are at one across town.

    There are a LOT of non-OAR titles in the selection, too. Maid To Order (Ally Sheedy) comes to mind. Be careful!

    Vince Thanks for the alert.

    I got PWBA and dangerous liasons for 5.99 each.
    Ialso found Mr. deeds marked for $12.99 with a coupon for $5.00 off Big Daddy (or a choice of a couple of other DVDs) So I got big daddy for $9.44

    $34.41 for four DVDs not a bad trip.

    Apparently this $5.99 deal does not apply to all areas. I went to my local Target last night and they had never heard of Pee Wee being for that low of a price. The Salesman even pulled out their latest ads and there was no mention of Pee Wee in there.
