The two I tried in the Seattle area had exactly none of these. Sigh.

Re: MGM dvds $1 dollar tree

Andover Shoppes... Lexington, KY. Big selection at that location. Picked up...

21 Hours at Munich
Wild Bill
Warm Summer Rain
Prick up Your Ears
Manic
Hidden Agenda
S.F.W.

I didn't notice S.F.W. on the master list... That, or I'm blind.

Anyhoo... There's another Dollar Tree down the street from one of the Big Lots here. I'll check there the next time that I stop at that store.

Re: MGM dvds $1 dollar tree

abintra, thank you. your breakdown is very helpful.

Is anyone interested in trades? I didn't see a thread in the exchange area. I have picked up about 15 of these titles and have access to another 30 or so. I really want 2 copies of Solarbabies.

Re: MGM dvds $1 dollar tree

Neither of the two stores here has had a restock and they are down to less than a dozen DVD's at each store. I grabbed Attention Shoppers...never seen it, but it has Kathy Najimy in it, so SOLD!

Re: MGM dvds $1 dollar tree

I went back today and bought..

Prick Up Your Ears
Some Girls
Breaking In
Making The Grade

I saw Kill Me Again and would've bought this however even for $1 it's not worth it because it's fullscreen. Fullscreen isn't worth a dime to me.

Re: MGM dvds $1 dollar tree

Would you be willing to pick them up for me if I can't find them here in a few days?

Re: MGM dvds $1 dollar tree

Since there seems to be a few new titles the last few days, I figured there might have been a restocking so I went to the local DT and picked these up:

Code46
Four Friends
Heart of Dixie
Jinxed
Living Large
Manna From Heaven
Monkey On My Back
On Edge
SFW
Thunderbirds: Are Go

Would this be the "Some Girls" with Patrick Dempsey? I had bought that at full price when it was first released, but ended up returning it cos they created a matted widescreen out of the original FF ratio negative for the DVD release.

Actually it's a BIG help. Thank You. Non-anamorphic WS is useless as far as I'm concerned. My "Taffin" and "Young Doctors In Love" may go back. ...And I'll be giving up the search for "Look Back In Anger" now.
...Still lookin' for that "Warm Summer Rain" tho...

Re: MGM dvds $1 dollar tree

Seems like some of the stores had some restocks...

Didn't find anymore 'new' titles...

So far, I picked up 101 different titles from this DT deal...

Re: MGM dvds $1 dollar tree

I'm shocked my local store still has a good two dozen or more titles that have never sold all this time. I can see the ones with minor names not selling but a few of these have well known stars. I guess the economy is making people even think twice about buying $1 dvds.

MADISON and A GUY THING seem to be neck and neck in the running for the JOEY SEASON ONE of this sale.

I think it may have more to do with the fact that they're practically hidden in some stores. I visited one location this morning and found the DVDs in a cardboard display wedged between two shelves. You couldn't see any of the available titles unless you pulled the display out.

Of course, now that they're placing the DVDs in their ads, we may see some increase in traffic for them.
