Grand.

I thought it was the original - "Stepfather".

Nevermind.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

I looked into it because I dig the one from the 80's as well. I didn't even know it was remade a decade or so ago, but apparently it ain't great.

I own the remake (DVD) - it was okay.

Also grabbed a couple of films which were blind buys:

American Woman

I don't think this will be common but came across Deja Vu from Olive Films - the Jaclyn Smith movie from the 80s.

I have found a few Olive Films (Greed in the Sun and S O S Tidal Wave) but they seem to be fairly rare finds.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Went to my local store - turns out their stuff was put out last week. But since it's been triple digits here and they changed their hours, now closing at eight, the bin was full. FULL.

I had called and said they were going to put it away elsewhere in the store. Rushed over and saw them. Looked about and as I was examining, the clerk was putting the away. Can you wait a couple of minutes?

Was fortunate, she was the only one on the floor so only a few titles were put in the cart - which I looked at. There were customers who needed to get checked out and help finding stuff. That game me enough time to go through the whole bin.

Took home various titles for their cases and...

"You Might Be The Killer", "Death Kiss", "Monolith", "In Doubious Battle", "Listen Up Philip", "Red Rag", "The Clinic", "Righteous Villians", "Better Off Zed" with slip, "Gates Of Darkness" with slip and "End Of The Fall" with slip.

Could not find "Power Of Grayskull" or any Olive titles.

Thanks for the info folks! This is why I love this locale.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

A bit bummed that one of the DT B&M stores I frequent now has significantly less BDs & DVDs than they used to.

Even so, I was able to find a few things I was after:

The Alpha Test (2020)
Short Term 12 (2013)
The Protector 2 (2013)

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

The DVD waves of the past few months have all been similar - lacking big studio content for the most part and a heavy reliance on junk from indie distributors. It's evident to me that Dollar Tree must have bought Echo Bridge's entire DVD backstock for pennies on the dollar.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

My store had another wave of titles.

Picked up a few just for their cases - Black Friday is coming.

And three for watching; "Power Of Grayskull" (finally found one), "Terror Tales" and "Termination".

This is the first time their rack was so full, they had spillage around it. Granted a lot of it is garbage, there are some interesting stuff in there.

Something while writing this up... "Dollar Tree" sounds a bit like "idolatry", suppose that nothing.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

I just haven't found a lot of compelling content in the latest waves and it's likely to get worse in 2022. Dollar Tree used to get most of the leftover Walmart inventory but that well is severely drying up.

We disagree. It's a mix; some good (including indie flicks) and fodder titles. It's different, not entirely garbage.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Stumbled on this thread and forum while searching for "You Might Be the Killer". Did some reading and catching up and now I need to hit some of the local DTs by me, I think there's 5 or 6. The rare ones that include the digital code, are those codes usually still good?

It's always a crapshoot and heavily depends on your regional location. Most stock are leftovers from Walmart distribution facilities. A couple years ago before Covid, the DVD and Blu-ray drops at Dollar Tree were more predictable and would usually sell out quickly. Nowadays each location seemingly decides on their own when to put them out.

Dollar Tree has been having severe problems finding staffing since the pandemic. A few stores around me have been closed in the middle of the day because no one was available.

I'm in Southern California; none of the stores near me have had this issue.

There are four of them.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Walked into a store today and found a huge Black Friday display that appeared to be untouched. I could tell it was for BF because the boxes containing the discs said 11/26/21 on them. At this particular store, the display was a full end cap from top to bottom. That apparently wasn't enough space because there a couple of boxes at the end of a checkout lane as well. I'd say 85-90% were DVDs. And of course some of what I found we've seen before.

Here's what I bought on DVD. A number of MGM titles, most all are blind buys:

Boxcar Bertha
Canadian Bacon
Crisscross
The Double (Eisenberg)
Hector and the Search for Happiness
Lars and the Real Girl
The Love Punch
Shadows and Fog
Stanley & Iris
Tom & Jerry Tales: Vol. 1
Tom & Jerry Tales: Vol. 6

And I paid $1.25 for each of these. I would imagine all stores are receiving their shipment this week and it's just a matter of whether they put them out now or hold them.

Also bought some BDs. Those are listed in the appropriate thread.

Nice! Stanley & Iris is worth a few bucks as it's out-of-print. If Crisscross is the Goldie Hawn film, it's worth money too!
