Stopped at two locations last night, one had them out but only had one blu-ray title, Fading Gigolo, with John Turturro. Lots of kid titles on DVD.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I'm probably going to go in Fri Am, but truthfully, I haven't seen a single title here or on You Tube that I want.

I enjoyed Stonehearst Asylum a great deal. Kate Beckinsale in a Victorian thriller, need I say more.

Charlie Countryman is probably most notable for an Evan Rachel Wood nude scene.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Thanx for the tip! I'll be the first to admit that USA films from this century (actually from the 90's - now) are probably the weakest link in my film knowledge, other than a few artists like Woody Allen that I follow.

I have found a few nice surprises in the last year.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Stopped by two Dollar Trees, and they had almost 100% different selections. And except for Ninja and Charlie Countryman, I saw none of the Blu-rays on bobwil54's list. Here's what I picked up:

22 Jump Street
Charlie Countryman
Blue Jasmine
Beyond a Reasonable Doubt
Survivor
Ninja II
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Forgot to get a list of the Blu-rays I skipped.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Seems like each region gets its own set...North OC in SoCal is flooded with these titles

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I hit the local today. They had not put them out yet. They let me look. 5 identical boxes; no blu-rays. The only film worth mentioning that I already own was Reality Bites. They told me to check again on Tuesday, that they often get shipments a week late?

Don't think it's regional. The two Dollar Trees I visited were less than a quarter mile apart, but had almost completely different selections.

Hit a 2nd DT. Similar story. They received 4 boxes total, with 1 blu (it was already sold, no idea what it was).

Both stores thought they would get more next week (one Monday, one Tuesday)

Stopped by a DT in an area I don't normally frequent. The only BD's they had were Charlie Countryman(about 12-15 copies)and single copies of The Iceman, a Robert Deniro 2 pack(Killing Season/Red Lights) and Foxcatcher. The only one I picked up was The Iceman.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I went to 10 stores in South LA and the South Bay of SoCal today (because they weren't out Thursday and I was busy yesterday), and 9 of them had 2-5 of the following, often in large quantities, sometimes 25+ apiece:

Battle of the Year
Charlie Countryman
Guadalcanal: Island of Death
The Iceman
Parkland
Sleuth

So the same as laidbacklarkin, minus any Robocop.

Those 9 stores were:

855 Sepulveda Blvd
23126 Hawthorne Blvd
1206 Beryl Street
4181 Redondo Beach Blvd
2218 Artesia Blvd
13039 Hawthorne Blvd
14700 Crenshaw Blvd
16610 S Western Ave
1431 W Knox Street

A tenth store, 22217 Palos Verdes Blvd also had a couple each of:
Grand Piano
Standing Up

I went to another store near Long Beach (SoCal) today - all they had was a s**tload of 'Charlie Countryman' copies.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

First time in awhile my local dollar tree had a
bad batch or many multiple copies of mostly DVD.I'm guessing around 90% DVD.
I also checked all the boxes under the table.

Only 4 different Blu-Rays.
About 25 copies each of Baggage Claim and Survivor.
And a few copies of mirror mirror and crap crap.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I'm pretty glad I already own the more interesting movies in this new Dollar Tree wave.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I grabbed Charlie Countryman and Stonehearst Asylum from my local DT (in Katy).

If anybody finds a copy of the Compleat Al or the Digital Comic ones (Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk for example) on DVD, let me know. I don't really buy DVDs anymore, but those I'll make an exception and I'll pay for them to be shipped to me (or we can make trades because lord knows I have plenty of stuff to trade). Thanks!

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I came across one store with about 30 copies each of Parkland, Sex Tape and The Best of Me. They had no other BDs.

After Phantom's recommendation, I wouldn't mind finding Stonehearst Asylum for $1.

My local store only had Sleuth, Parkland and Guadalcanal: Island of Death. Picked up the first 2. No real interest in the Guadalcanal: Island of Death disc.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I checked the local store yesterday to see if they had gotten any more. Absolutely 0.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I don't really believe Dollar Trees get multiple shipments of media. It's just that some locations don't open all their boxes and put them out at once.

If you want to master Dollar Tree, it pays getting friendly with someone that works there.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

One of the 2 closest to my house took me in the back room a week ago Friday & showed me the 5 small boxes they had received. That's all there was.

I believe you that some of the stores get more than others. I used to know almost all of the local Big Lots managers in their heyday & often got access before stuff hit the floor. Certain stores got 3-4 times more product than others.
