Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

It really is a YMMV type of thing.

My local town has two Dollar Tree's. One has a whole bunch of these titles. In fact they just restocked, Same titles though, nothing new. Their DVD/CD area is jam packed.

The one on the other side of town has a pitiful selection. What's weird is that it's a newer store.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

cool, Dollar Tree finally getting some halfway decent titles in. Maybe they'll ramp it up and it'll be the new Golden Age like Big Lots was last summer... Except ONE FREAKING DOLLAR.

You gotta dream, baby!

Where are you located?

Many of the Dollar Tree and 99 cent store deals seem to be regional and it would be helpful if those that find them, would post their city.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Bolingbrook, Illinois.

The DT near Best Buy is the one where the selection is terrible. In fact I went their today and they had a total of about 7 DVDs. That's it.

The one on the east side of town near Walmart has a much better selection.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

I think it was last year when people were finding Eagle Vision music DVDs at Dollar Tree, but I checked several times and never found any in my area. Have found a few decent DVDs during the past month though.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

I was glad to see some of these titles finally showing up at my local Dollar Tree. I picked up Now You Know and Thunderbirds. And I think I should go back and get Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey, a documentary on former Boston Red Sox pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee.

Every time I quit checking Dollar Tree, someone mentions a title I'd like to have. I'll have track down that Lee documentary. Thanks for mentioning it, Rexxriot.

While I don't want to discourage you from looking, I think it's possible that Spaceman might only be in Boston (or New England)-area Dollar Trees. I noticed it in a big bin in the front of the store with a couple of Red Sox DVDs, Faith Rewarded and History Rings True, and not with the other DVDs. Of course, they could have just decided to put it up there because it was baseball related.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Anybody else finding DVDs by a company called TUTM?

I found the following titles in Orlando...
"Alfred Hitchcock Collection Vol One: Sabotage"
"Alfred Hitchcock Collection Vol One: The 39 Steps"
"The Screaming Skull" ( some other old horror titles also )
"Bail Out" ( with David Hasselhoff & Linda Blair - lol )... FYI: it's censored...

They also had some nature type dvds by the same company.

I went to TUTM's official website, and looked at their cyber-catalog for their 2010 dvds. One of their titles is called "The Perfect Nanny". I did some research, and it seems they are the only company that offers this flick on region one dvd ( probably censored ).

I also noticed they had an "Ed Wood: Vol One" listed in their cyber-catalog.

I've searched a couple of Dollar Trees, but I have not been able to find either of these titles.

Most of the Dollar Trees in my area seem to be stocking up for halloween and most of these dvds are horror / thriller titles.

I also noticed some music dvds.

I found a Kidsongs CD from TUTM that included a DVD of the TV show of the same name, that was it from them.

The Dollar Tree where I live had no movies, just music DVDs. At least they weren't ones that were just 3 or 4 videos on a disc that was used to be bundled with some CD like at Target or Walmart.

I picked up:

VH1 Storytellers: Alanis Morissette
Atlantic Records: The House That Ahmet Built
Barenaked Ladies: Barelaked Nadies
Time Again...Amy Grant Live
Norman Granz Jazz In Montreux Presents Mary Lou Williams '78

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Dollar Tree stores are very hit-miss for me. Knollwood (St. Louis Park, MN.)=Nada. Eden Prairie, MN. had a bunch. I picked up multiple "Atlantic Records: The House That Ahmet Built" and saw several of the Genius "Bazooka Joe" animation sets (Superman, Betty Boop, Stooges) but passed. (I wonder how chewable the free gum is in the DVDs?)

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

I was told by a Dollar Tree manager the DVDs rarely make it to the floors anymore as the employees usually pick things over and buy them right as they come in. Not shocking considering there's a local store where you can trade the stuff for at least $2 a disc or more if you take in store credit.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Was hoping to find some of the music related DVD's that have been mentioned but no luck. Did stumble across a few that I wouldn't have paid $3 for at BigLots but for $1, decided to give them a try:

I posted two different versions of Party Girl because the one I got(the one on the left), the title on the spine is upside down. It's supposedly a Lions Gate release but I think it's probably going to be pretty dang bad quality.

Yeah, I've spotted the same copy in my local store, too. Supposedly the quality isn't too bad.

The DVD itself works fine, has a menu with a couple extras, no glitches.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Nothing at Dollar Tree except Digiview stuff and PD stuff. Some of the Digiview stuff was marked down to .25 and comes in a bright red regular-sized keepcase, so if you are looking to replace a colored keepcase, you could do it for a quarter.

It's the same at my nearest Dollar Tree, which is surprising because it's one of the bigger stores and is fairly new.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

They finally got some of these movies in at my Dollar Tree. I found Party Girl and it does look like a bootleg with the bad printed cover and b&w picture on DVD.

Same thing with another movie I picked up, National Lampoon's Golf Punks. The cover on that one looks badly printed and the DVD itself just says the name of the movie, a DVD logo, catalog number, and the Lionsgate logo. Just like the cheap Treasure Box Collection DVDs of PD stuff Dollar Tree had a few years ago.

Also found:

Connie And Carla (FS)
Shaking The Tree
The Archies In JugMan/ Dennis The Menace: Cruise Control
