Best DVD in the Walmart Bin ?

I been picking up a few DVDs here n there at the Walmart Bins for a while since they been priced at $5.50/$5.88 and grabbed a few good titles like Strange Days, Muhammad Ali: Through the Eyes of the World, Michael Jordan to the Max, The Contender:Special Edition to name a few. So for overall quality (Sound, Video, Features, etc...) which of these Walmart Bin DVDs is the best for the 5+ dollars?

I kinda think Muhammad Ali: Through the Eyes of the World is up there. Any others worth looking for???

Thanks

I like Freeway - picked it up years ago at full price, you can't beat it at $5.50

Falling Down was the only one I have ever found worth picking up

Casualties Of War... The only one I've picked up from the $5.50 bin that I still own.

Strange Days is non-anamorphic or I would grab that one... The Contender is a pretty good disc and a decent film. Tigerland is OK. Other than those, I've yet to see much of interest.

I love strange days, but being Non-Anamorphic kills it for me...

That was the first thing that leapt to mind, but I saw that StrTrkker already owns it.

But, I suppose as a public service to others, I'll 2nd JuryDuty's mention... this has got the whole package. Fantastic film with a fantastic DVD. Probably the best $5.50 you could spent.

Against All Odds SE is a good one.
Didn't know about Strange Days, I'll pick that one up.

Creepshow
Manhunter (AB single disc theatrical cut)

Dark City in the bargain bin? Not at my Wla-Mart.

You can find many of the Fox Hong Kong DVDs in the 5.50 bin. I just picked up Eastern Condors. Great price.

I was fortunate enough to have stumbled across Dark City about a month ago. Never saw it before, haven't seen it since. A couple of other goodies that I plucked from there were Logan's Run and a second vote for Falling Down.

While not necessarily a find, I saw Titanic in the bin at one Wal-Mart.

I also got Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell out of the bin only a week after it had been released.

Other bin picks:
Freeway
Rambo II
