$4.88 DVD display at Wal-Mart (online as well)

Usual disclaimer, did a search for "$4.88" didn't find this posted already.

Saw a big display in the main aisle outside the entertainment department. Here's what I remember seeing:

The General's Daughter
Clue
Beverly Hills Cop 1, 2 & 3 (separate, not the gift box for $4.88)
Flashdance
Another 48 Hours
Enemy at the Gate

There were probably 4 or 5 more that I don't remember the names of.

Oh, looks like the $5.50 bin got another boost, as I found Mystery Men, Lockup and Frankenstein (DeNiro) tonight.

It's non-anamorphic, but the transfer is pretty decent. Definitely not a botch-job. There's a 5.1 track that's nothing special. It seems like Paramount might be prepping a re-release, but for less than $5, it's hard to go wrong.

Is there a new version of Bad News Bears on the way to coincide with the remake?

P.S. I accidentally typed Bad News Rears wich I thought was kind of funny.

I saw all the above at my Wal-Mart (Huntsville, AL) in the same 4-sided display as the brand new releases in the main aisle. Picked up Saturday Night Fever ("He hits my hair!") and Beverly Hills Cop. Plenty of Vanilla Sky, etc. Most folks were too busy looking at the Elektra disks to notice it...savages...

In addition to that, my Wal-Mart also had a display of Fox TV box sets for $14.44. I picked up King of the Hill-Season 1 and Harsh Realm-Complete Series. They also had Buffy-Season 1, NYPD Blue Season 1, an Alley McBeal compliation set, and several others. Definitely worth searching your store for if you've been holding off buying some sets...

I haven't seen any rumors of such but it is very, very likely. No extras, average picture quality at best.

The Wal-Mart in Xenia, Ohio has it and many other titles stocked in depth. I suspect they will sell fast over the weekend though. For anyone in the area, the big floor display of $4.88 DVD's is in the front of the store, right around cash register lane #3...

I was pleased to find one of my favorite guilty pleasures Clue in this $4.88 deal and picked it up today. I did not see What's Eating Gilbert Grape but people were not surprisingly swarming the rack and Clue only had a few remaining. I was lucky enough to encounter some savages rambling about how they cannot find Full Screen DVD's. I was disgusted and quickly left.

Our WalMart had the Richard Gere "Primal Fear" in the $4.88 bin, not "Primal Fear - The History Of Fear".

I wonder why Paramount is slashing prices on these DVD titles.
