Dollar Tree DVDs

I looked for a Dollar Tree general DVD thread and could not find one (other threads delt only with MGM, CMT or horror DVDs) so just decided to make one.

Went into my local Dollar Tree yesterday and they had put out some new DVDs. None of these were from the assortments listed in the above threads. Along with the usual crap you expect to find in places like these, they also had a mix of DVDs from several different companies:

Universal:
Far From Home
K-Pax,
Van Helsing London Assignment
The Shrink Is In
(starring Courteney Cox)
Playing For Keeps (starring Marisa Tomei and Directed by Bob & Harvey Weinstein)

Kevin Smith Presents: Now You Know (Weinstein) (Directed by Jeff Anderson aka Randal from "Clerks")
High Roller (New Line)
Innocence (Columbia TriStar)
Last Wedding (Platinum)
Shaking The Tree (Sterling) starring Courteney Cox
Facing Fear (Volocity Home Ent.) Starring Dean Cain and Talisa Soto
The Anarchist Cookbook (Screen Media Films)

Also had several of the Bazooka Classic Bubble Toons DVDs of Superman, Betty Boop and The New 3 Stooges. If you have a local Dollar Tree, you may want to stop by and take a look.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Thanks- for a buck I might have to upgrade my laserdisc of Playing For Keeps in spite of its mediocrity. They must have printed more copies of KPax than there were DVD players- I got that for under 2 bucks at Wal-Mart one Black Friday, and it's been a mainstay at Big Lots for a few years.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Hit a couple of Dollar Trees today. One had a few DVDs, the most noteworthy title being Far From Heaven (that might be what the OP meant by "Far From Home")...now I feel ripped off that I got that one from Big Lots for $3 within the last year or 2.

I stopped off at a Dollar Tree this evening, remembering this thread. Absolutely buried from sight on a bottom shelf were stacks of DVDs - mostly the Universal and Screen Media films mentioned above.

In addition to what's already been listed, I saw:

Smile (Screen Media)
Shirley Temple Little Darling Pack (Universal Franchise Collection)
Romancing the Bride

I picked up Hitcher II, Darkman II, and Van Helsing: London Assignment. Not bad for 3 bucks and change. I'll watch them.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Picked up Darkman 2, Hitcher 2 & Soderbergh's Underneath, which I don't believe was mentioned before.

As an FYI, all the Universal titles I saw had slashed UPC's. For a buck I could care less, but if you do, heads up.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

I started last year's thread about the Dollar Tree MGM/UA dvds since it appeared my local store had them out early but this new batch has not shown up here yet. Given how few posts are on this thread as opposed to the old one, wonder if this is more on a limited or regional area?

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Picked up Now You Know at the Milford, MA store tonight.

Also, I noticed that they had this copy of Party Girl, which is odd in that this DVD was released by Lions Gate, while the only copies I found on dvdempire were both released by Sony.

I suppose it may be a Canadian release, but I didn't pick it up as the artwork looked really crummy (almost photocopied), and the title on the spine was upside down.

I picked one up. Disc is a bad black and white print job. Cover insert looks laser printed. Has to be a boot. I wonder how these got into a legit store?

The DVD itself works fine, has a menu with a couple extras, no glitches.

That DVD is was one of the first ever released, about 15 years ago. That might explain the poor production design. I've seen old Warner DVDs were the pics on the back cover are so low-res that you can see pixels.

I am not picky, but as I remember it is not bad at all, nothing distracting to me.

Interesting. The case is flimsy, no security strips. And the black and white disc art looks smeared. If it is the real deal I would be surprised. But I guess it is possible.

If this is a factory release, I would think a serious fan of this movie would definitely want the 2003 reissue.
