There's a reason for that. Reread the first post and thread title.

It should probably be pointed out that they weren't in a display (at least for me). At both locations they were in a cardboard dump bins mixed in with DVDs. They are pretty easy to miss if you are just walking by.

I checked a couple local Dillon's (Kroger owned) stores last night, but didn't find any of these displays unfortunately.

Re: Kroger's Cheap New HBO DVD's and Unversal HD-DVD's (YMMV)

after a few trips to various krogers around nashville, tennessee I hit success - found almost all titles listed on other posts (except of course for 2 that I really wanted!)... at least now I'm motivated to get out & hit the other krogers again to see when their stock arrives... (the store I found them in today did not have the display set up thursday afternoon)

Not sure if you have a Kroger's owned chain in your state? Check here:
http://www.thekrogerco.com/operation..._locations.htm
My state does not
CA has 382 locations. Tons of HD-DVD's to be scored there!
I never knew Alaska was in the middle of Mexico. Strange that it gets cold there...

Got Atonement, The good Sheperd, Hollywodland and Breach today at my local Krogrer. The HD DVDs were located in a bin in the middle of the supermarket. They also had another separate section of DVDs near the cash registers. Saw around 20 titles, but no Half Baked.

Re: Kroger's Cheap New HBO DVD's and Unversal HD-DVD's (YMMV)

Spotted tonight in Bloomington, IN at the Southside Kroger (Walnut and Rhorer):

Alpha Dog
Breach
Children of Men
Eastern Promises
Elizabeth: The Golden Age
Fearless
Hollywoodland
The Kingdom
Miami Vice
Mr. Bean's Holiday
Smokin' Aces
Talk To Me
Unleashed
You, Me and Dupree

The display said "$5.99", but I didn't pull all of the titles to confirm the stickered price on each. The few I did pull were $5.99.

Re: Kroger's Cheap New HBO DVD's and Unversal HD-DVD's (YMMV)

Went to all four Kroger's in the area last week with no luck. Went out again tonight, and one store finally had some of these titles. I picked up:
Fearless
Alpha Dog
Hollywoodland
Unleashed
The Break-Up
Slither
The Mind of the Married Man SSN 1

All were $5.99. The only other HDs they had were Chuch & Larry, Talk To Me and Mr. Bean's Holiday. I was disappointed to not find American Werewolf In London because I really wanted it, but at least I was able to nab Slither...

I have been to three Krogers in the Fort Worth are with no luck. It seems be primarily the stores in the northeast. Oh well.

Just hit three Kroger's. One had no display, one had a small one and the other had a rather large display.

Picked up:

Dazed and Confused @$3.99
Unleashed @$4.99
Fearless @$5.99

Also, saw Moonlighting Season 3 and Season 5. I think they were $6.99 each.

Today in Sylvania, OH they had:
Alpha Dog
Breach
Children of Men
Dazed & Confused
Eastern Promises
Elizabeth: The Golden Age
Fearless
Hollywoodland
Hot Fuzz
I Now Pronounce you Chuck & Larry
The Kingdom

Anyone find these at Baker's (Kroger owned) in Nebraska?
I will hopefully check out a store or two in the next couple days.

On my second try, I found the bin where these were located and hit the mother lode. Saw at least 23 different titles, all combos of course. Most would be rentals at best (except that Netflix doesn't rent HD DVDs anymore) but I did pick up three.

So far as I can remember, all the the titles I saw have been mentioned by others above.
