Sure thing. There was just one copy, mixed in with the Halloween titles. It was on the wire rack, on the top, on the side closest to the registers. It was the only "Halloween" title that stood out.

I am actually surprised how many people are here from south central PA. I used to hit most of the stores in this area, but Lancaster+York has been serving most of my needs, combined with high fuel prices...unless I just feel like driving. You do know there's a BL in Lancaster at the Manor Shopping Center (by the Manor Cinema)? It's got to be closer than East York, even if the shortest distance isn't by highway.

Personally, I'm looking for Birdy, Amazon Women on the Moon, and The Car, if anybody locally can find them. I wouldn't drive as far as Boyertown (but I did buy a used car up there 1 1/2 years ago), but could probably make an excuse to drive anywhere else.

Re: Big Lots Part 10 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

Just happened to go by the Bridgewater, Mass. location for work and decided to stop and take a look even though my previous visit was vastly disappointing. Sure enough, the wire rack is only about 1/2 full. Mostly all stuff that's been around forever except for a new batch of $5 Christmas stuff. Once I saw Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer for five bucks I quit looking. Then, low and behold, out of the corner of my eye, I see the 6-foot tall cardboard monolith that has been everywhere else months ago, yet not here. Upon further investigation, THAT too was ravaged down to about half full, maybe less. Thought I would only find old stuff but I looked anyway. Needless to say, I was surprised to come across some titles I hadn't previously seen before...

$3

Ned and Stacey: The Complete First Season
After Hours
All Monsters Attack
Baby, the Rain Must Fall...slimcase
Felicity: An American Girl Adventure
Houdini's Death Defying Acts
March of the Penguins...widescreen
Preacher's Kid
The Stalking Moon
The War Lover...slimcase
Who's That Knocking At My Door

The two slimcase titles I mentioned were probably part of a bigger Steve McQueen set, just so you know. And I know March of the Penguins has been around forever, but only in fullscreen around here.

I don't know if this is for everyone, but if this is an example of the "NEW BUZZ CLUB" reward, then we are SOL.

Spoiler:





A whole week to use it!!!

Re: Big Lots Part 10 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

^Well... it *is* 20% off as long as you stop at $50. The 1 week limit is a bit short IMHO. I keep expecting a change here but so far it's the same as it's always been. Very puzzling... are they testing this new "improved" version in certain parts of the country?

$10 off $50 is their normal BF deal too. I wonder if they'll stack that day (probably not). I didn't see the 1 per week restriction in the image.

I don't buy that much from BL, least of all DVDs, and when I do buy from BL I just wait for their (usually) quarterly 20% off Sunday sale for everyone, so these program changes won't affect me as much as it will others. I hope they don't take those periodic 20% off sales away.

Went to our local Big Lots yesterday, don't get there as often as I used to, wanted to see their Halloween DVD display and see what new ones they had. This Big Lots (Boardman, OH.) is a write off as far as I'm concerned. No Halloween DVD display, no new DVDs whatsoever, still just the original wire rack with all the same old shit. My wife & I both left empty-handed. -kd5-

There was a "new" 4 sided cardboard monstrosity here yesterday and I was excited for a few minutes until I realized it was restock titles in the 2 waterfall sections and they'd put overflow from the 2 large waterfalls and wire rack in the sides and bottom slots. Bummer...

I saw the monstrosity in the Danvers, MA, store today. However, there was not a lot in it, which is stupid since the wire rack is overflowing a little. I did mange to find Huff Season 1 for $3 though.

I look but there's not much to say. BL has pretty much the same old same old DVDs with a few exceptions. Besides, I'm not very interested in mediocre $3 DVDs when BDs can be had pretty cheap if you wait for prices to drop (or get them used from Gohastings). The only times I go to BL now are when they have a nationwide 20% off sale, and even at $2.40 it's rare that I buy any DVDs, though last time I did pick up several. DVD Talk's forums seem to be rather dead lately. I'm not sure if there's a more active BL forum on Blu-ray dot com.

Re: Big Lots Part 10 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

Found a few interesting (to me anyway) titles yesterday, all $3:

Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (1960s science fiction)
Easy Living (Jean Arthur, Edward Arnold, written by Preston Sturges)
House Calls (Walter Mathau, Glenda Jackson)
Hell's Angels (Howard Hughes production)
Sweet Liberty (one of a glut of movies that Alan Alda directed based on his success with M*A*S*H, good cast but not very well reviewed)
The Don is Dead (Anthony Quinn, Robert Forster)
A Man Called Sledge (James Garner, Laura Antonelli, directed by Vic Morrow)
Flash of Genius (will make a good double bill with Made in Dagenham)
The Gathering (Ed Asner, Maureen Stapleton, TV movie)
Teeth (directed by Mitchell Lichtenstein)
Strange Brew (directed by Moranis and Thomas)

The BL's in Boyertown,Pa. has been open a few months with no TV series DVD's except for the mini-series "Traffic"

I finally found and purchased the following for $3 on Sunday:

Huff-the complete season
Strong Medicine-S1

P.S. That Beautiful People complete series with Daphne Zuniga mentioned on an earlier posting, was part of last Non-Dec 2012 batch of DVD's at the Dollar Tree for $1.

Beware of picking up Mackenna's Gold. On the case it says the movie is "1:85 anamorphic widescreen", but when I went to play it, it went from a letterbox format(!) to pan & scan!!!!

Here is a post listing titles that Sony reissued to either widescreen or full screen:

Guess I will be saving my copy for the next Best Buy U&S.

I'd love to pick up Hell's Angels @ $3! Easy Living sounds interesting also.
