Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

The BL near me got the $3 blu's today. I picked up The Sessions on the prior recommendation of Helen Hunt sans clothing. Just started it. My Oppo will play it, but I've never seen so many java copy guards in my life. It took over 2 minutes to get to the film after inserting the disc.

The only other blu possibly worth mentioning was a film that looked interesting, but that I've never heard of, "A Late Quartet"; a drama about classical music.

It's a fine ensemble drama about the four members of a string quartet. A Late Quartet is a quiet, serious piece on adult friendships. Recommended for the turns by Christopher Walken and Philip Seymour Hoffman, or if you have an interest in the world of chamber music.

Iceman
The Jone$es (I bought this as a blind buy, even though I blind bought the DVD at Dollar Tree previously)
Lake Placid 2
Meet Dave
Meet the Spartans (saw this priced at $3 and another copy at $5)
The Rebound
Return to Nim's Island
S. Darko
The Secret Life of Bees
Special ID
Stargate: Continuum
Street Kings 2
Tooth Fairy 2
The Tree of Life
Won't Back Down
I guess I finally came across this new batch before the resellers had snapped up everything. I also saw a few other ones like Casino Jack and What's Your Number in the selection. It was on a waterfall display.

The one store I visited only had DVD copies of this assortment. I highly recommend Two Lovers if you can find it.

I'm in SoCal and I have not seen those 4 titles. I have seen other Magnolia Home Entertainment titles recently such as The Perfect Host.

I did see the Special Id (Donnie Yen) BD for $3.

Also saw the following from the same batch (all blue color price tags):

Thin Ice BD $3
Lake Placid 2 BD $3
Paris 36 DVD $3

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I will say there were probably 2 copies of each of those titles at the store I visited. Not sure if there might have been more when they were put out or not.

I wanted to pull my hair out as I was watching Never Let Me Go. Keira Knightley's worst movie by far.

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

Stopped by a couple of locations and they had a fresh batch of the same MGM-Fox and Sony titles others have seen before—$3 and $5. I picked up a few:

Amelia
S.W.A.T.
Midnight Cowboy
Anger Management
Bad Teacher
Brothers McMullen
Wall Street
Wall Street II
Donnie Brasco
Dylan Dog
Deception
Great Expectations
Identity
Henry's Crime
The Ides of March
Miller's Crossing
Man On Fire
Chain Reaction
Rising Sun
The Sessions
La Femme Nikita
Tree of Life
This Means War
The Wrestler

and finally, the most guilty pleasure in my collection, the Anna Faris/Chris Evans romantic comedy, "What's your number?" I like both stars as well as the supporting players which include Chris Pratt, Andy Samberg, Joel McHale and Zach Quinto. It's really not as wretched as the reviews would have you believe. It's no more inane than sitting through a few episodes of "Friends."
