Wal-Mart Exclusive Double Features

Anyone buy any of these and then try to submit them to DVDspot and discover that they aren't available from any online retailers or anything?

A few examples I have, had or have seen:

Hostage/Ransom
The Ladykillers/Nothing to Lose
Secret Window/Identity

I was not only just wondering if we could compile a list of them, but also whether or not anyone bought Ladykillers/Nothing to Lose and wanted to sell it to me cause I can't find and purchase it online.

I have a bunch of those including (purchased last week): the Rambo Ultimate Ed. trilogy in 1 keep case and Steven Seagal movies Marked for Death/Mercenary For Justice double feature. I have spotted all 3 you mentioned and numerous others over the last year or so. I think they have exclusive sale rights to some of them, or exclusive sale rights windows (like for the first year they're out). But for some reason, these aforementioned sets don't show up on WM's site.
It would be interesting to see what kind of list that would be (to compile).

What I've seen recently are double and triple feature of actor's movies, like for example, Stallone double feature of Rocky 1 and 2.

Yeah that's the most troublesome part. I want Ladykillers/Nothing to Lose but since it's not in my local Wal-Marts I am just out of luck. You'd think they'd offer them online, at least.

If you see one I'd be happy to paypal some money your way for you to pick it up.

Today I went into WalMart looking for the Pryor/Wilder triple feature they had before: Stir Crazy/See No Evil, Hear No Evil/Another You. It was nowhere to be found and it dawned on me that it was probably a limited-edition WM exclusive, now OOP. Guess I can't wait on some of these...

Yeah, I saw a war one that had, I think, The Battle of Britain and another one, I wanted to check it out online to see if they were both good movies, when I went back it was gone and I haven't seen it again.
