Re: Target $5 Blu-ray Bargains

Use the store search on their website Manzana and it will tell you what stores they are sold at. http://www.target.com/p/Rambo-First-...n/-/A-11298999

That was definitely true for the first batch of $5 BDs that showed up last year. Only 2 locations out of 32 in one East coast metro area ever got them in. I think it is some sort of viral sales gimmick. Generate positive word-of-mouth on the Internet such as this thread and get shoppers excited to visit Target, even though few locations will carry them.

Re: Target $5 Blu-ray Bargains

Bumping this to say that new stock of $5 Blus were at my local Target. I picked up HANG EM HIGH and RISING SUN. There were more, but I was in a rush and couldn't jot down titles.

Would love for someone to please answer this. It's the first I have heard of it, so I would like to see if my version is "corrected" or not.

Re: Target $5 Blu-ray Bargains

I thought I read somewhere that the versions with the red bubble advertising the alternate ending is the corrected version;

Re: Target $5 Blu-ray Bargains

Reviews for both of the individual movies found on the Hostel double-feature:

http://www.doblu.com/2012/10/03/hostel-review/

http://www.doblu.com/2012/10/11/hostel-part-ii-review/

If you want these movies in the best presentation with no problems and all the extra features, skip the $5 Mill Creek BD and get the original Sony releases for each movie. Anyone telling you differently is either a Mill Creek shill or doesn't know what they are talking about.

Some New items in target's 5 dollar area.
My Week with Marilyn Combo pack is the one I was most happy to see.
Also Black Sheep, Tommy Boy, Varsity Blues, The Ring, My Idiot Brother.
And some Bruce Willis flick called Catch .44

Re: Target $5 Blu-ray Bargains

Picked up My Week with Marilyn yesterday as an instore pickup. I tried to find it the day before on the displays, but couldn't. Great deal for a really smart little flick. Michelle Williams is amazing.

Re: Target $5 Blu-ray Bargains

My Week with Marilyn is a great film and that's an awesome price for it. I would pick it up but I bought it when it was first released.

Re: Target $5 Blu-ray Bargains

I was just at Target and noticed they had some new stuff in their $5 (well, $4.75 this week) section. NO Marilyn. I just did a store pickup order for it.

Re: Target $5 Blu-ray Bargains

Target would be a lot better off if they rotated their $5 selections more frequently. Even Walmart rotates their selection more than Target and has a bigger supply to begin with.
