Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I second the recommendation of the Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag. It's kind of a "lost" Allan Moyle movie between Pump Up the Volume and Empire Records. Both those movies have some decent sized cult appeal, but for some reason everyone skips over Gun.

Whatever happened to Penelope Anne Miller? She was everywhere in the late 80s/early 90s. I'll also add a recommendation for this movie. For a buck it's a no brainer.

Over in the Big Lots Blu-rays Thread....

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Had to run by my local store for a few other things. No BDs anywhere that I could see.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

One of my stores had a sign for this deal hanging, and they said everything sold out already...
Another location said they know nothing about this, and don't have any DVD's. So I dunno...

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Hit 4 Dollar Trees on the way home tonight and found a lot of the stuff listed above except for Upside Down which is the only one I really really wanted.

Picked up the following Blu-Rays:

Dolan's Cadillac
Bernie
Cosmopolis
The Code/The Contract
Stolen
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans
Red Lights

May expand the search tomorrow for Upside Down but I'm pretty sure it's gone by now.

Hit 2 more stores near the way home. One had the movies out - No Upside Down. The second had nothing but old public domain titles.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Was in Hagerstown today and found most of these. Picked up the 13 that I didn't own. Watch once and donate to Good Will their likely fates.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Stopped this afternoon at the store in my hood, but no blu rays yet. Misc. DVDs, though, incl. Rampart. So I picked it up. A bird in the hand, as they say.

If these are Walmart cast offs then Upside Down possibly has one. I have the movie (not from Dollar Tree unfortunately) and it came with a code. Same with Paperboy.

Stopped by my Dollar tree. Looks like a hurricane hit the DVD section but I managed to find some new DVD as well as a few Blu Rays. They had tons of Trespass and a couple Bernie. I picked up Once Fallen and A Little Bit of Heaven. I almost bought the Little Bit of Heaven DVD there before. Glad I waited.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Stopped at 2 different stores while out of town and didn't see anything. Asked a lady if they had any DVDs/BDs and she said it's an item of the week starting tomorrow and that stores should have them out then. Made it seem obvious that this location had some tucked away somewhere. I told her I lived over an hour away, but she had no sympathy for me. Guess I'll check my closest store in the morning.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I bought Upside Down at Target and it didn't have any 'digital copy' with it. My copy of The Paperboy doesn't either; there were 2 Blu-Ray editions of that BTW, one with just a Blu-Ray and the other also with a regular DVD.

The other poster was asking about Vudu copies.
Vudu copies only come with Walmart editions. They are a walmart owned company. Oddly enough I've seen the rare Walmart exclusive at Target, Fry's and Best Buy before. Also at closeout stores like Big Lots and $ tree.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Stopped by my local store this morning and was told they'd have some delivered tomorrow to be set up for Sunday. Called another store 20 minutes away and was told the same thing. It's a good thing I still enjoy the hunt when it comes to collecting. I'm going to an awful lot of trouble for some stuff that I may have just a marginal interest in having.

That's funny you should mention that. I remember when the Mill Creek Blu-ray titles showed up at Dollar Tree a year or so ago and I drove all over the Seattle area picking up crap like The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag, Big Business, Another Stakeout, Betsy's Wedding etc.

Yeah, I got about a dozen Blu-rays for a buck each, but I think they worked out to $8 each when I included the cost of gas!

Penny-wise, dollar-foolish!

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Went to one DT and it had the sign in the window and a few scattered copies of pretty much what has been mentioned. Went to another and they had a tableful of DVDs and Blu-Rays, though twice as many DVDs as Blu-Rays.

Honestly, only a couple of these Blu-rays are really worth hunting down. Most are direct-to-video fodder starring has-beens.

It does appear that all Dollar Tree locations will get a shipment this time, as in the past some locations haven't really carried media.

I went to one store today that had nothing. So it isn't all stores. All the other stores had it.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Went in one today and saw a good 20-25 BD titles. I did not get to check out everything they had as the lines were massive, especially the checkout where these were located. I do remember seeing Trespass, Big Bang Club, The Code, Sacrifice and Upside Down. But looking at the list of titles others have seen, it does not look like I am missing anything of interest. I would have been interested in Upside Down since it is a 3D BD, but I already own it.
