Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

My local Dollar Tree had a window poster for Blu-rays but not a single disc. That's the closest I've come to this DT having any titles.

Check in the Electronics session - usually the post promotion left overs are put out there but sometimes a DT getting a very low stock, just dumps it in that section. Keep your hopes low...very low.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Just watched "Joy" from the last batch. One of my best blind buys ever if you run into one at a DT.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

The day before Christmas I realized I was not going to have time to wrap anything, so I stopped in my nearest Dollar tree to get some gift bags. It was surprisingly un-crowded and a couple of workers were stripping the shelves of Christmas and hanging up Valentines Day stuff. I was heading to the checkout when I spied an empty aisle with 4 boxes of movies on one of the shelf. They looked like they had just been opened. There were both DVDs and Blu-rays. I got the Robocop unrated director's cut, Panic in the Streets (1950 noir) and a 4-disc 10-hour miniseries called Fortitude (with slipcover) all for $1 each. I also got 2 DVDs: Batman:return of the caped crusaders (animated with Adam West and Burt Ward doing the voices) and Filth with James McAvoy. When I was checking out, the cashier asked where I found these and I pointed to the boxes. She said "cool, I'm going to have to check those out."
My guess is that these were found in the back and were supposed to be put out earlier or they are supposed to be for an upcoming promotion. I got first grabs. There really was not too much else. I saw several copies of a movie in a snapper case, which I haven't seen for a while. They had lots of Robocops, only one Fortitude.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

This is definitely a new wave of DVD/BD boxes meant for this Friday's promotion. I saw the lady open the boxes and put them out in the front bin today.

Some new titles are included I've never seen before at Dollar Tree. A ton of Relativity (now bankrupt) Blu-rays like Black Nativity and About Last Night, plus some oddball c-movie stuff on Blu-ray. Also some animated DVDs aimed at kids, from the aforementioned Batman movie to new-school Tom & Jerry.

This one location didn't have a deep selection. At most 2-3 boxes of Blu-rays, and more DVDs than BDs.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Today, a worker at the local DT was kind enough to open 2 cases of BD's for me to peruse through.

My purchases:

The 5th Quarter
Rampart
Assassination
The Marine 3: Homefront
Fame (Extended Dance Edt.)
The Lazarus Effect
Capote
Hitchcock

Of the titles I bought, only 2 (Rampart & Assassination) were either not 20th Century Fox or MGM distributed by Fox.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I hit just one store yesterday evening and found Scrubs Season 8 on BD (among other titles). Will update this as I hit more stores.

EDIT: Hit 4 more stores tonight. Two were already severely picked over, the other two don't appear to have put out their stock yet. I was going to ask a clerk but they had scant evening help and so just left.

EDIT #2: Hit a few more stores on the way home from visiting relatives. My final damage:

Scrubs S8
The Usual Suspects (Wal-Mart promo cover)
Robocop (2014)
Milk
Capote
Hitchcock
Frost/Nixon
Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist
Why Stop Now
Me & Orson Welles (DVD)
Broken Saints (DVD)

A nice selection this time. I'm used to DT sales including so man films I've never heard of.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I came across a second store. This one didn't have a great BD selection, even fewer than the first one. Though I suspect they had been out a couple days and most had already been sold. I saw Honeymoon In Vegas and The Warrior's Way.

Most interesting were the single-disc Looney Tunes DVDs.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Kudos to the ones who picked up Joan Rivers...I've been trying to find that one with no luck. Might just pay the $4 (including shipping) on Ebay and be done with it. I did find a really good book recently called Time Salvager by Wesley Chu at the DT along with some Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare figure mystery bags (made by KNex) (4 Bags and only one duplicate, woot!)
