Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

I checked out a few stores recently. In one, I only found one $6 tv set, the Daily Show 2004 Election recap. In the other, I saw a few $6 tv sets, including Twin Peaks season 2 and a season of Melrose Place. I also saw Season 2 of Hawaii Five-0 for $6, which I could never find last year. My sense is that the tv shows coming out now are left over from last year. In some cases, they are sending them out as Black Friday specials and, in other cases, they are dribbling out here or there. I don't think either of the stores I visited recently got a sizable quantity of tv show sets. In one store I went into the back and saw a display of Christmas movies reserved for Black Friday. They had 1 copy of the latest dvd of Its a Wonderful Life, several copies of Elf and the Dennis the Menace Christmas movie with Robert Wagner, and a variety of terrible films like Four Christmases.

I went to Big Lots and looked at every single DVD there. I was able to find The Warner Bros Documentary http://www.amazon.com/Brothers-Warne...1292766&sr=8-4. I was surprised to see a lot of Benjamin Button Criterion DVDs for $5.00 that must be the cheapest Criterion I have ever seen; I guess there is no love for that movie.

That was my thought as well. You could look on the receipt and see what it says for the TV purchase to see if it is new stock or leftover stock.

Note that this version of THE GREEN BERETS is the ONLY anamorphic copy available outside of the Blu Ray. The single release says it's anamorphic but it isn't and never has been.

Thanks for posting! Too bad they've raised the TCM 4 film packs from $5 to $6.

It was part of the $5 holiday set that just went out. I think I've only seen one copy of it in Columbus though.

My local Big Lots still has a couple of Melrose Place Season Four sets from last Christmas; it's a very good season for the show but I'm guessing a serial like this a lot of people don't want to start with a later season. There's also maybe ten other different tv season sets from last year that still have never sold, again I think most of them later years in the shows.

It would make me very happy if Joan of Arcadia season 2 was in this new batch.

I'll just be happy if they get a different assortment than last year as I was able to get all the titles in which I had even a remote interest in purchasing.

Saw some Disney titles that may have not been mentioned for $3 each: Kronk's New Groove and Hunchback of Notre Dame 2.

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

Went to to the Appleton WI store to be heartbroken again (I'm doubtful I'll find It's a Wonderful Life; my new BL Holy Grail), and was suprised to see they had out some Black Friday DVDs already. $1.88 each in a display that had "Black Friday" all over it.

Nothing too different, but I did find a few I couldn't pass up:

The Great Escape 2-Disc Special Edition
Breakfast at Tiffany's Anniversary Edition
A Fish Called Wanda Collector's Edition
Mean Girls (foolscreen version; but I have never seen a widescreen version remotely close to my $5 max for it, so the sub-$2 one I grabbed will do for now.)

In the next display over, Mean Girls was $5.

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

Been checking the local stores hoping an early assortment of tv sets might be found. Just checked the other day and went back today to find everything the same except about 6 copies of the anniversay Planet of the Apes 2 disc set for $3. I know it wasn't there the last couple of times I was at that store and I've never seen it at any of the 3 local stores.

I have no idea why that would be the only new item to pop up.

I was concerned about not finding any mention of TV season sets, but remembered that those items will go on sale Thursday.



Anyhow, I've edited the images - the relevant stuff; DVDs and games.

I'm not impressed by the offerings. Feels like more of the same, just cheaper.

Like many films made since around 1980, Mean Girls was probably shot so that it could be matted for theatrical presentation. As a result, you are probably getting more picture not less by buying the fullscreen. There are not too many truly pan and scan versions of widescreen films that have been released on DVD.

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

It looks like Big Lots has a few different seasons than what I saw last year for $6 of the same old series. I never once saw a 7th Heaven S1... just S9 and a couple others. Those $1.88 deals on Great Escape and Fish Called Wanda are good. I paid way too much for those in the past (and still haven't opened them).

Unless you do a bunch of research online it's hard to know which movies are open matte vs. cropped in pan & scam (fool screen) format, so it's always safest buying widescreen. I know because originally I opted for open matte over widescreen whenever I could find it (I liked seeing more image even if the director didn't intend it), but I discovered it took so much time to research each movie, plus you had a few where you'd see mikes in the shot, so I just decided to save myself time and go widescreen always.

Seeing multiple copies of "Strongest Man in the World". Is "Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" showing up as well?
