That was my problem in the last wave. Over half the stores still had the November wave out on the shelf. I did have some luck going back to those stores late in the week, and finding some of the new wave mixed in.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Local store had a new lot on a metal roller table by the front entrance today. Mostly all the same as the previous lot(s) - a lot of Magnolia titles, some BBC. Only about 5 BluRay's, the rest all DVD. The only ones that struck me as titles I hadn't seen before were My Boy Jack (Daniel Radcliffe/DVD), Keane (Damian Lewis/DVD), and Her (BluRay w/slipcase). Didn't buy any.

Hit another DT today and they had the new wave out. About 5 boxes of mostly DVD's with a total of about 6 BluRays. I grabbed Burning Palms (2010) and Good Neighbors (2010) both on Blu.

Thinking i should go to mine before they close, and hope new stuff out by chance cause i read sometimes stores put stuff out ahead of time. then some wait for the day. the torture of waiting lol.

I have Good Neighbors already, don't need the other one mentioned. Trying really hard to restrain myself from buying any more at least until I've finally moved to a place with more room to store them!

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I hit a location today that someone had already gone through and purchased most of the BDs. There were literally like 4 BDs left out of dozens and dozens of DVDs - The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and Joe Dirt 2. Should have made the trip on Friday.

I did see an entire case of television DVDs - About A Boy S1, Dig S1, and Girlfriends' Guide To Divorce S1.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

If most bds are gone and only dvds left, that means some or many only buy bds now . i by chance scored a bd and dvd combo from last batch by chance. but now days traffic either get all for own stash or try resell any later i think. and seeing how they only a buck , i wonder how much they try sell on ebay to profit any. since we in a ebay world, it ruins fun of collecting some or anything now.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I went to my local Dollar Tree today. The Blu-ray selection was pretty weak.
I ended up getting 5 DVDs:

East Side Sushi
Beware The Gonzo
Inherent Vice
Basmati Blues
The Stream

I haven't seen those movies before and $1 is cheaper than renting. If I don't like the movie, I'll try to sell it in my next yard sale for $1.

Basmati Blues is pretty bad - Brie Larson in a bad Bollywood-style romantic comedy. Donald Sutherland sings...

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Last i went to my place, i thought they was gonna get new but no front setup and just the same back stock i already checkd like a few times already. have no clue when they getting new batch, just gotta go and check anytime. have so many already no watched yet so not really need any more for awhile. just gota have enough on me so if ever go in next week or 2 and check for any new by chance. and i dont waste time driving around or busing if can save and load up from one store or any cheap stores close by for any.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I must have seen 300 copies of About A Boy's Season One DVD set in my travels this wave. They way over estimated demand for that show.

That's what it's like whenever I go there. Just twenty or thirty copies of the same shitty direct-to-video movie.

From my understanding, companies like Dollar Tree are bidding on lots where they often know little more than the original distribution targets and possibly what studios/labels are covered. They don't get spreadsheets listing 1000 copies of Terrible Movie 2, 1500 units of Forgotten Sequel, and 400 sets of Bland ABC Series Season 1 in advance.
