Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

As of last Sunday, no Blu-Rays at either of the 2 Dollar Trees near me, but one of the stores had 8-packs of fun-size Baby Ruths for $1. Normally you only get 6, but these specially marked packs had 2 bonus ones. I bought a couple, pretending that I was going to save them til Halloween. I'm halfway through the first pack. They are not stale or old at all.

Their candy items aren't usually secondhand inventory, so they are no different than the stock you would find at Walmart. The place that occasionally carries stale, older candy is Big Lots.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I'm too busy eating the $1 ice cream to look for blu-rays.

Stopped in to my local Dollar Tree to grab something else and was surprised to see 3 Blu Rays. 2 copies of the Longest Ride and 1 copy of Is Anybody There? (Michael Caine movie). I grabbed 1 of each.

Finally found some stuff worth getting, after several failed efforts: Walter Mitty; Blackthorn; Grand Piano; Hoosiers; and Lost World ("previously enjoyed" DVD).

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Heads up... I stopped at a DT today and there was a new shipment of BD's in the electronics aisle. Mostly Fox / MGM titles and some reruns from the last sale (Taken 3, Before I Go To Sleep).

Picked up The November Man BD/DC, Paranoia (2013) BD/DVD/DC and Rio 2 3-D BD/BD/DVD/DC. There were multiples of the Rio 2 3-D available. Also picked up something called Jules Verne Adventures Into The Blue Planet for the case (it's a 4 disc BD set). But, it's narrated by Christopher Lee and clocks in at 8 hours so I might give it a spin.

Fargo was the best movie in the lot... The old BD, not the remaster.

I go by 2 Dollar Trees to and from work now, so will take a look. Already have both Rio movies in 3D, gotta watch them together soon.

I assume if Rio 2 is a 2 blu set, 1 disc is regular 2d. It that correct?

Nearly ditto for me, except that there were about six copies of Reign Over Me on Blu mixed in with the exercise DVDs. So does that mean that I missed the new batch almost completely, or did they just put out a few to fill the shelf back up?

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

DT plays with my emotions again. Went by my location this evening and park right in front of the entrance. For the 2nd time in a row, I can tell as I enter that the front display is packed with new titles that have been barely touched. Upon closer look, I realize half the display is the same Jillian DVDs that didn't sell earlier.

Of all the new stuff, there were probably 30 BDs. They consisted of several copies of:

Robocop (1987)
Ghost Rider
Baggage Claim
Space Warriors

Already have the first one and there was no way I was wasting even a buck on the others. Did glance quickly at some of the DVDs and picked up the Dog Whisperer (Season 4, Volume 1) There was only a single copy. I've never seen it, but I bet my kids will enjoy it. Also picked up an HBO baseball film/doc, Reverse of the Curse of the Bambino. The only other noteworthy item on DVD was several copies of the first season of The Soul Man.

Overall, a letdown. But I have to wonder if they couldn't put everything out since the display still had all those exercise DVDs. I might go back in a day or two and ask.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

The only thing I've seen mentioned of any interest to me is Rio 2. And that's not a must own for me by any means.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Went by a 2nd location. Display had been out for a bit the way it looked. A handful of BDs still left. A few copies of Baggage Claim and Foxcatcher.

Happy about the latter since I've never see it.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I saw 2 stores (and heard about a third) where it appears that the only BD in the shipment is Standing Up. Hopefully I'm wrong and/or it's not widespread, but I thought I'd mention it in case.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Local DT is 80% picked out. They said they put out the display today..... Nothing left I even wanted to spend $1 on. Sadly, I drove by there earlier & didn't think to stop. Probably the best titles I saw were dvd's of Shanghai Surprise & I Am Legend (Will Smith).

The one bluray amidst the DVDs at my local DT was about twelve copies of a Bruce Lee double feature from Shout!, -"Fists of Fury/Big Boss".

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Picked up Taken 3, Enough Said and Chasing Mavericks on BD today. They also had a bunch of other BD's and dvds in the bin at the front entrance of the store. I hadn't heard of most of them so I passed. I did see but already owned Fargo, The November Man, Taken 2, Rio 2 3D and Thunder and the House of Magic 3D.
