Great list. Thanks for all of the hard work.

Not sure if these titles have been mentioned before but I have found:

The Wild Bunch - Original Director's Cut (Snapper)(WB)
8MM 2 - the R rated version (I only saw the unrated version on the list)
Truth or Consequences NM - WS/FS (I had to look at hundreds of FS only versions before I found this one.)

FangsFirst, I didn't see Swimming With Sharks at the Cary store. But I was on my lunch break so I kinda had to haul ass and get back to work so I didn't get to look too throroughly. I might go back tomorrow, I noticed several that I missed on the main list.

One I saw today that I didn't see mentioned was American Psycho 2.

Swimming with Sharks is an excellent flick. I have the older version myself.

Because who the hell wants that piece of crap?

I found a display at the Roxboro St Durham store, but no Sharks in it...got most of the others I was after, until I remembered Dr. T had an SE. Hoping to exchange it at one of the Triangle stores for Sharks.

Thanks, though, as Cary is the store I know is best at getting things out (and I know a guy there, kinda, from my constant visits--though the Durham stores are wary of my periodic mass returns after I get home and check reviews on titles I picked up and find dogs in them--they think I'm re-sealing them or SOMETHING...)

It looks like some of the Biglot stores put them out early.

I tried to go to the BigLots near me earlier today but aborted the mission. It's a small store and it was just way too crowded. I can't believe people are supposedly shopping less this Christmas. I've never seen the stores so crowded.

I know what you mean. I go crazy and then get home and find out some of these are not worth $2/$3.

I thought with this Artisian batch, I wouldn't pick up too many, but got 21 titles. At least half I know I will keep. I actually had to restrain myself and not buy everything I thought I might like. I've picked up so many in the last year, I have got to be more selective.

Okay, I checked back today and didn't see Swimming With Sharks anywhere. They'll probably get it soon though. They did move the DVDs since yesterday, now all of them are over in the little Electronics section over by the shopping carts. Which makes it an absolute pain in the ass to look through because the metal 4-sided shelf is way too close to the two cardboard displays. It's seriously about a foot and a half away from them, I could barely crouch to see the bottom titles.

Same here.

The gf and I spent the day X-Mas shopping, and it was fucking insane. The stores were crowded, the lines were long, there was nowhere to park, and traffic was a mess. We're in the Midwest, which doesn't seem to have been hit too hard by the current economic crisis, so I can't know if it's like this in the rest of the country.

ETA: Back on topic, picked up a "Singles" DVD from Big Lots today; the bar code was only very lightly scratched.

^ Moonlighting, Season 3 - hadn't seen anyone list this before. I barely watched that show but wouldn't hesitate to pick it up cheap at BL.

Excellent!(?)...just when I thought I had no reason to visit Big Lots the rest of the year this Moonlighting thing gets reported! When the Who's the Boss Season One was going strong there was a limited time the set could be found on the Amazon Marketplace between $3-4 plus shipping. And that might be better than spending a week driving around various Big Lots, if history repeats, and Moonlighting drops in price on Amazon for a while. We'll see. The cover to Season 3 looks the best of all the season sets in my opinion. This will probably fly out of the Big Lots stores faster than the James Bonds. If it is confirmed to be $3.00. http://www.amazon.com/Moonlighting-Season-3-Cybill-Shepherd/dp/B000CRR3NI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1229367402&sr=1-2

I got the new ad via e-mail today and there will be $2 DVDs starting Wednesday. Some have been reported here, but I'll put up what I can see from the ad:

Swimming with Sharks
Inspector Gadget (animated)
Open Water
Baby Movie
Shootout
Shanghai Suprise
Babar
4 more that I can't make out the title to. When the newspaper comes tomorrow, I'll post those titles if someone else hasn't yet.

I went to two Big Lots this weekend. I saw one copy of MOONLIGHTING Season 3 for $2. The other Big Lots didn't have it.
