No, Richard, I was so discouraged from the last trip there, I've been staying away. Maybe will hit it one more time before I leave town, but hard to work up any enthusiasm for it.

I was surprised to find all the new $5 triple features today. I picked up The Da Vinci Code (Special Edition Giftset) and the Ray Harryhausen set. I would have gotten the Stanley Kramer Collection, but I just bought it on Amazon for $7.23.

Some of the other sets:
Ice Cube (XXX: State of the Union / Anaconda / Ghosts of Mars)
Cameron Diaz (Charlie's Angels / My Best Friend's Wedding / The Sweetest Thing)
Julia Roberts (My Best Friend's Wedding/Stepmom/Mona Lisa Smile)
Martin Lawrence (Bad Boys/National Security/Blue Streak)
Football box set (Rudy/Radio/Jerry Maguire)
Funny Girl/Funny Lady
Desperado/Once Upon A Time In Mexico

There were probably some others, but I can't remember what.

My Best Friend's Wedding is the SE and Stepmom was FS. The Ice Cube set had Anaconda and I think XXX as FS.

Others I saw:
I Know What you Did Last Summer/Still/Always Know
Jack Nicholson - Something's Gotta Give/Anger Management/King of Marvin Gardens
Bill Murray - Ghostbusters/Stripes/Groundhog Day SE
Jamie Foxx Triple Feature: Breakin' All The Rules / Booty Call (non-Bootiest ed) / Stealth (FS)

I think I remember this set:
Sleepless in Seattle/Philadelphia/A League of Their Own



I took my brother to the airport and stopped by a BL that was on the way and they had these sets. On the way home I stopped by my local BL and there was no sign of them. I wonder if only certain areas of the city are getting certain merchandise since it was reported that parts of Houston got the WC Fields and Mae West sets and I never saw them at the 3 BL's I frequent. (Did luck out and get Bosom Buddies S2 for 3.00 since it had no wrapper, but security sticker and discs were intact)

Is that a DaVinci Code in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me ?......................I'm sorry, I just couldn't resist.

Is anyone finding this new batch on the west coast? I always appreciate locations (at least your state) on the finds!

*Nothing* new here. Not even general restocks from the massive purchases made over the Labor Day weekend! The place looked like it had been cleaned out in many areas. As of yesterday, shelves have been "cleaned up" and stuff moved around but nothing added. They sold at least enough DVDs to fill a couple of those pallet sized flat tops plus empty over half the wire rack. I really wish they'd have a half-price DVD sale (people here would by them by the truckload if they were half-price for a day or two) to get rid of the rest of the stale DVD stock to make for more easily looked through new stuff...

Nothing much but I did find one copy of Revenge of Frankenstein for $3. Would love to find more Hammer titles.

Do I dare stop by my BL and waste 20 minutes looking through their same-old same-old stuff to try to find a Stanley Kramer collection knowing the chance of finding it is about 5%? When I call and ask if they have specific titles, they usually tell me they're too busy to look for specific titles. I looked for the Ren & Stimpy Lost Episodes Collection over the course of a month when someone mentioned it was $3, but I never found it at any BL. The Stanley Kramer collection will probably be another vaporware title like that in my area.

It's a box set sized box (not a regular keepcase size like some sets) so it will jump out at you right away. Or not. Anyway, it won't take you 20 minutes to determine its presence or lack thereof. More like 5.

The only other Hammer title I've ever seen at BL is Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed and that was over a year ago.

All of the Big Lots in Columbus used to be great about getting all of the new shipments, but they've just become worse and worse over the past few months. I did manage to find one store (the Wilson Rd store) with a few new things and picked up a 3-disc set of "Black Hawk Down" for $5, a 2-disc set of "Brokeback Mountain" for $3 and that Ray Harryhausen set for $5. I saw the "Da Vinci Code" box, but they only had one and it looked like it had been stomped on a few times. Any other Columbus folks having better luck?

Actually I remember Dracula Has Risen from the Grave, Horror of Dracula and the double feature The Curse of Frankenstein / Taste the Blood of Dracula

BTW. Amazon has the original 6 DVD set for 16.93 Amazon fulfilled or 14.49 Amazon MP.

Yup, picked up the Barbara Streisand double set + 'Stripes/Ghostbusters/Groundhog day' triple feature for $5 each...there were many 3 feature set as well but beware of the AR..they are all mixed up, on many sets, I saw two movies being WS with one being FS and things like that. The set with 'Stealth' in it shows AR as FS but the picture included shows WS...this was at the Lakewood store in Socal
