Over the last year or soi have found some decent movies in there at a good price(5.50). Some include

Ford Fairlaine
Creepshow
Suicide Kings

But today I found 2 great movies:

The Life of David Gale and
Mystery Men.


Gotta love these finds...does anyone else find good movies in these bins????

Short Circuit
Pee Wee's Big Adventure
Drop Dead Gorgeous
Suicide Kings
Hot Shots Part Deux
Evolution
The Million Dollar Hotel (I've not seen it, but no less than Bono wrote it, so I'll grab it at some point)
Muppets Take Manhattan
The Powerpuff Girls Movie (and several assorted "best of" DVDs)

And I'm not counting several I passed on or don't want because they're foolscreen only.

Creepshow seems to be a popular item in the bargain bin. Everytime I see it I wonder why it is there. It is an excellent horror anthology and it gets the bargain bin treatment.

I think my copy came from Circuit City, so I cannot claim it as a WM cheap bin find.

Kidhuman
02-18-2005, 05:40 PM
Oh yeah I grabbed Evolution two weeks ago also.

Hot Shots! - one of my favorite comedies.

Tigerland - a movie I wanted to rent, but it was never in. So when I saw it for $5 I thought "why not?" when renting it would cost $3. Actually a decent movie too.

I'm always tempted by Godzilla (just to watch him rip apart New York), Red Planet, and Total Recall.

I've also picked up a few of those Ashley Judd-semi-chick-flick-murder-mystery-Lifetime type of movies for my fiance.

I scrape some titles out of that bin from time to time, as well.

Most recently I picked up Muppets Take Manhatten and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I have some of the other movies listed here but I remember paying $10 for them. :D (Suicide Kings, Creepshow, etc - by the way, I agree that Creepshow doesn't "belong" in that bin ;) ).

Oh, do you ever see My Life there ? I grabbed that awhile back from the bin, what a fantastic bargain !

I found "The Storm Riders" at a local WM for 2.99 or some such, it is an awesome film if you want to see a Fighting Game Film the way it should have been done (think mortal combat or samurai showdown, tons of special effects and wild magical kung-fu)

Rocketboy

I recently picked up Equillibrium and several WWII type documentary DVD's.Really? I've always wanted to see Equilibrium. Nobody around here has it to rent. I looked for it at Best Buy today and it was like $20.
F that.

I am intrigued(but don't buy any of them) the bin of the DVDs of all the obscure, crappy B, C, D or made for TV movies in the other bin or display? What is up with those?:confused: I like how they advertised it? FULL LENGTH MOVIES!!!!!!! :ermm: :confused: lol Like they are going to be only half the movie.:rolleyes: Why because the DVD is only a buck? I think WM will have alot of returns on that.(whoah that was 360) If that was the case.

Airheads - excellent choice !

Man Can - is that a regular edition of SBM ? I have the regular but would gladly upgrade to the SE for $5. :D

Scruff, I don't have them handy right now so I can't recall the specific titles but one of them was a Superman/Popeye crossover deal and the other was all Pops, methinks.

Also, Target has a handful of these Popeye dollar DVDs as well, and they come in a cardboard box rather than the slim plastic case at Wal-Mart. :)

I found The Truth About Cats and Dogs quite a while back. If you pick that up along with Mystery Men (for a grand total of $11), you can be swept back to the days when Janeane Garofalo was still funny*!! :crazed:

The only movie I ever bought from a Wal-Mart bin was "Last Action Hero." Don't remember the cost but it was less than $6.

"This is for blowing up my ex-wife's house." (slaps the guy across the hand lighlty)

"This is for killing my favorite second cousin." (punches the crap out of the guy, sending him across the room).

I remember reading this on the boards prior to going to Indy for the convention, and while stopping at a Wally-Mart to get provisions, I saw this laying in the bin and got it. Not a bad price for a quality movie.

Assault on Precint 13 from the 5.50 bin.
Isn't that movie relatively new?

vader121
05-06-2005, 08:35 AM
I need to ask this ...

Do you guys/gals really like these $5.50 movies and watch them more than once?

I see these bargain racks and there are always notable movies in there but I can't bring myself to buying them to watch once or twice. I have done that in the past where I pick up a movie, watch it once or twice, and then it just collects dust.

Kidhuman
05-06-2005, 10:59 AM
Yes, I watch em more than once. Even if it is 6 months later, they get watched again.

Isn't that movie relatively new?

Oh no! The inferior remake has made people forget the John Carpenter original! Madness! :D Just messin', man, it's not one of Carpenter's better known films.

And yes, I do watch the bargain bin movies more than once. Creepshow is a common find in the bin and that movie is the best. Great EC tribute and love the comic use of color.

And I see Caesar found Frailty! Wow, another great bargain bin find. That movie is great.

Yessirs, I bought the o-riginal Carpenter version. :)

Frailty - a movie I've not even seen yet :D but for 5.50 even if I don't like it, I'll write it off as a pricey lifetime rental. ;)

Some of these I watch more than once, hell they've got Boiler Room not for 5.50 but 4.77 if you can believe that . . . I've watched THAT movie probably a dozen times and I paid 15 bucks for it a few years back.

El Chuxter
06-02-2005, 05:42 PM
Not exactly a "cheap bin" find, but the WM near me had the super-nifty collectors editions of Monty Python & the Holy Grail, Black Hawk Down, Spider-Man 2, and The Dark Crystal for $20 each.

No, its more like three pages. :D

But its a good book, you get accounts from German soldiers, Russian soldiers, civilians etc. Buy it, you probably wont be disappointed.

While at a Walmart today i looked through the bin but couldnt find anything good. Lots of Eddie Murphy movies in there though...

I always find too many people bending over the bend looking for that perfect budget price movie - though when i find Tigerland - I think I'll buy it...That was one that was always gone at the video store, so when I saw it in the bin, I picked it up. It was only like $2 bucks more than a rental. And I didn't have to worry about a late fee.
Movie was actually pretty good too.

08-02-2005, 11:26 AM
Well after seeing and hearing about it on the boards here I finally gave in and picked up Batman The Movie. All I'll say about that movie is... WOW! I also picked up Trading Places and while not from a $5.50 bin I also got Coming To America.

08-17-2005, 11:02 PM
Id jump at Rush Hour 1 and 2 if i could find them at a cheapo price. I would call that a nice haul. Lately i havent seen anything special in the bin, so ive cut back on digging through them.

I scooped up The Rules of Attraction, I saw it in the theater and thought it was pretty effed up and I wouldn't have bought it except for the $5.50 price . . . I wanted to see it again so thought why not grab the cheapo, it's like an eternal rental. :grin:

09-09-2005, 08:33 PM
I found a couple of movies in there the other day that I picked up. The Saint w/ Val Kilmer, and a foreign (German) horror flick called Anatomy. I have never seen Anatomy but I have heard it is supposed to be good. For a couple extra dollars I figured why not own it rather than rent it? Horror is my favorite genre anyways. :thumbsup:

09-09-2005, 09:40 PM
So far from the bin I've gotten:

Short Circuit
Hot Shots
Hot Shots Part Deux
Evolution
Mystery Men
The Legend of Bagger Vance
Hatari
Waterworld

Thinking about picking up Baseketball as I've seen it a couple times in the bin, dunno though.

UKWildcat
09-09-2005, 11:19 PM
Good call on the 2 Hot Shot movies. I can never find those movies in the bin when I go looking. I have never seen Mystery Men. Is it worth a blind buy at $5.50?

3 movies I have regrets on not picking up were the Naked Gun movies. I saw all three in the bin a few weeks ago but didn't get them, haven't seen them since either. :frus: If I see them again I am definitely going to pick them up.

Kidhuman
09-10-2005, 12:57 AM
Basically anything is a good buy at 5.50. A rental is 4 bucks so to own it for a dollar and change more, its worth it.


Mystery Men is worth the buy even if it was ten beans

09-10-2005, 01:43 AM
4 dollar rentals ? ? ? ? ? Where do you rent from ? :confused:

Mystery Men is terrible, Baseketball is awesome, and courtesy of JimJamBonds I am the proud owner of a $5.50 DVD of The Saint so I can finally say I replaced that VHS. :)

Kidhuman
09-10-2005, 08:40 AM
I dont rent from anywhere at those prices, but thats what they charge here. Plus if you want a new release for 7 days instead of 24 hours they tack on another dollar.

megaprime33
09-10-2005, 08:56 AM
Well I would say the best find I saw was TMNT 1 for like 3-5 bucks or something. I did see Corvette Summer in there too once. That's the movie Hammel did right after ANH in 78. The movie sucks so I didn't buy it, but it was there!

2-1B
09-10-2005, 12:34 PM
KH, those prices are absurd !

Here a new DVD is $3, I think, and that's for the NEW ones . . . not these crusty old Bargain Bin titles that we're talking about. Those would probably rent for about $2 here. :grin:

09-11-2005, 02:25 PM
I picked up 'Made' the other day from the cheap bin, I also had in my hands 'A League of their Own' but ended up not buying it (but wishing that I had). While not in the cheap bin but hanging out not to far away are various two packs, the pick of the litter is Police Academy 2 and 3 for something like 10ish dollars. Also of note Cobra and another crusty Sly flick were packaged together.

UKWildcat
09-11-2005, 11:57 PM
I also picked up Made from the bin a couple months ago. A league of their own would put me into a dilema if I saw it in there. $5.50 is obviously a great price and I don't own the movie yet... but I'm planning on picking up the 2-Disc SE when it drops in price.

2-1B
09-12-2005, 12:43 AM
Can we include the 6.44 Wal-Mart titles here, too ?

I picked up the 2 disc Comic Book The Movie, never saw it but for 6 and a half it's worth a shot considering the people involved . . . they also had the SE of Copland at that price, I would jump on it except I have the older version already. Good little picture they made there, I really like Copland.

UKWildcat
09-12-2005, 12:57 AM
Caesar, I watched most of Copland the other day on cable and actually enjoyed it. The first and only time I saw it, when it was released on video, I wasn't a big fan, but it was much better than I remembered. Thanks for the info on the cheap title, next time I'm at WM I think i'll pick it up if I can find it.

Oh yea, and its fine with me if you list 6.44 titles as well, I love bargains, even if its not in the bin.

I picked up Baseketball this weekend, and would have picked up Mystery Men if it was laying on top (I didn't feel like digging). It is the first $5.50 movie I picked up since Adam West's Batman a couple years ago not counting Hot Shots 1 and 2 my mother-in-law gave me this past Christmas.

JimJamBonds
09-13-2005, 01:02 AM
Ehh but at such a low price you can't really go wrong. Lets say the movie gets two viewings out of it then I'd say its a wash, anything more and you're coming out ahead as far as I'm concerned. Sure I've bought a few flicks that are 'always' on (Coming to America, Shawshank) but I really like those movies and this way I can watch them anytime I want. And in each of those cases its unedited and the movie only stops if I push pause. :pleased:

Stopped by the bin today and picked up a couple titles. Found Joy Ride and Evolution. Both of which I have never found in the bin before. I also picked up Boomerrang for a friend. I also had both Hot Shot movies in my hand but I put them back. If they weren't in Dolby Surround I would have picked them up. Maybe I can wait for a better release in the future, but 5.50 is awfully tempting.

A heads-up, especially if you don't like shopping at Wal-Mart: I stopped by CompUSA last night to pick up the Hitchhiker's Guide for $14.99, as advertised in their circular. It turns out they were sold out, but I saw a rack of many of Wal-Mart's $5.50 movies for $5. :eek:

JimJamBonds
09-16-2005, 01:22 PM
I don't have a CompUSA around where I live but I did a dvd search on their website and they have some nice crusty titles that I might order. :p

JimJamBonds
09-22-2005, 12:31 AM
I've seen it hanging out in the bin. I saw it a few months ago and had to laugh at the special effects in the movie. Sure they were great at the time now... well now they look corny and bad.

El Chuxter
09-22-2005, 01:06 PM
Plus, I believe there's a loaded version of Jumanji in the works. I've decided the double-dipping is ridiculous enough to not buy new versions of movies I already have, but it does sometimes determine if I buy the current one when I know there's a better one on the way.

Mandalorian Candidat

Found Amityville Horror (the OG with Margot Kidder) and the X-Files movie this AM.

Found WishMaster 1/Wishmaster 2 double feature in the bin today. Grabbed it for the horror collection.

WM also had just about all of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies for 5.50 as well. The prices aren't bad for the individual titles but the Elm Street Box set is definitely the way to go. WM also brought back their $4.88 movies but there was nothing that really interested me.

Oh yea and FYI, WM also had the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) 2-Disc Special/Collectors Edition for $12 and some change, which is a really good price. On their website it is $25.85. Just thought I'd let ya know.

The Craft and Close Your Eyes are probably seasonal items, like the Elm Street movies, so I grabbed them while they were there. They did have some other new additions to the bin but nothing that really stood out.

At Target today I noticed they've restocked their $5.50 shelf with a bunch of new additions, like the X-Files movie, Cabin Fever, Uncle Buck, among others you may have actually heard of (unlike 90% of the Walmart bin).

There were only 1 or 2 that I think I may actually pick up, but at least I've heard of most of 'em.

For those of us in the Wisconsin/Michigan area: Escanaba in da Moonlight is currently residing in the bin.

While it wasn't in a bin I picked up a Muppets taken Manhattan/Muppets from Space deuce pack for $10.84, saving me a whopping 16 cents compared to picking them up loose in the bin. :rolleyes:

Awesome, now you can put those 16 pennies toward your next $5.50 purchase. :)

Uncle Buck is a steal at $5.50, I got mine for $7.50 and it was worth it at that price already. :)

Not sure if it qualifies as a "bin" find or not but Walmart has brought back a section of $4.88 dvds. Today I picked up Virus, In Dreams, The Hitcher II, and Weird Science. I also found a couple copies of Fletch as well, and I'm sure many of you know that Fletch has been Out Of Print for a while now. I picked up a copy for myself since I never wanted to pay $30+ for one on eBay, and left the other. There were many other titles that interested me but I had to hold off for now. I'm going to go back later in the week to pick up some more. Very pleased with the Fletch find though! :thumbsup:

At Target I bought The Cooler for $5.50. I liked that movie when I saw it in the theater but didn't want to buy it . . . until I saw it at that price.

I also bought Cabin Fever which I suspect was a poor choice but I never saw it and don't feel like renting it, so meh !

Tonight I bought the following DVD Season Box Sets for $19.88 each!

They also had Without a Trace Season 1 and a bunch of "older" Television shows like The Dukes of Hazard and Wonder Woman.

A week or so ago I saw Can't Hardly Wait in the bin which is a steal for $5.50, too bad I already own it. They had Saving Silverman as well, but I don't think it was the R-Rated version. The other one that stood out was Godsend, can't remember if I enjoyed that one or found it painful, so I didnt' get it.

I'm not sure, and i'm not going to complain either. :D The Shining and The Exorcist are legit too. It wasn't long ago when both of those were around $20, and they are excellent movies.

I ran by WM yesterday and picked up Caddyshack (don't know why I never owned this one), Interview with the Vampire, The Shining (same as Caddyshack), Eyes Wide Shut and I also found Dumb and Dumberer so we can add that one to the list as well. I would have picked up Superman (as a gift) but it was nowhere to be found, same with Best In Show. I also saw a few other titles that weren't on the list but I can't think of them right now.

I bought the first 5, I already had Wonderfalls, Buffy, Angel and Tru Calling. I will probably pick-up Arrested Development later. Anyway, I just thought I would pass this along.

Oh, I also noticed that Target had Smallville Season 3 and 4 each on sale for $24.99!:thumbsup:

Thanks for the heads up Sith Killer!

Firefly and Millennium come highly recommended by me. The only other shows I've seen on the list are Arrested Dev., Tru Calling and Malcolm. Any recommendations for the others? The Shield, etc? Has anyone seen The Lone Gunman? I love the X-files and Millennium, how does this stack up? Is it worth a blind buy?

sith_killer_99
01-01-2006, 12:13 AM
Lone Gunmen was OK, not nearly up to par with X-Files or Millennium. It was more comedy relief than anything else. They only made 13 episodes, but it's worth a watch IMO.

BTW, the first episode is kinda scary as it deals with a Goverment coverup and attempt to fly an airplane into the WTC. It really takes on a whole new meaning in a post 9/11 world.

I am a HUGE fan of "The Shield" and recommend it to everyone, it is pretty intense with a lot of graphic violence and sexual overtones. I believe Michael Chiklis (sp?) won and emmy for his performance in the series.

I also really enjoyed the first season of "Murder One". I stopped watching it after the first season. It was an original series that followed the case of a murder trial from the POV of the defense attorney. Each season was a new case. Like I said, I really enjoyed the first season. I will most likely buy it. BTW, this series was also done by the same folk who do 24.

My brother-in-law is a huge fan of The West Wing, so I bought him the first 2 seasons for Christmas.

My wife and I loved Wonderfalls when it was out and we bought the box set back when it first hit. It was a good show, luckily they managed to wrap up all the loose ends at the end of the season so it is pretty much a "complete" series.

Found a bunch of new movies for $4.88 today. Most of them were either stuff I'd never heard of or unadulterated crap, but I picked up Eight-Legged Freaks (widescreen for a change!!), Hamlet (Mel's version), and The Incredible Mister Limpet.

For those of you who are not familiar with Limpet, rush to WM and buy it now. It's a film about Don Knotts somehow becoming an animated fish with glasses and joining the US military to fight Nazi subs in WWII. I kid you not. It's one of those "so incredibly cheesy, it's great" flicks.

I also saw, among many others, The Cell, Contact, What a Girl Wants, and, crap, I'm blanking on the others.

True. The best parts of the film were seeing Knotts abused by his wife and friend.

Once he went animated and met up with Ladyfish, it all went downhill.

Now that I think about it, the whole movie should have been about that old crab and explained his origins.

Back in the late winter or early spring, WM had a bunch of old MGM movies for $4.88. Found Killer Klowns, Meteor and Eye of the Needle.

Right before Father's Day, there was an endcap of action-adventure movies for $4.88. Lot of John Wayne and other action flicks.

I know this is a WM thread, but I've noticed that Big Lots and Dollar General stores are carrying some cheap DVDs.

I picked up the original Night of the Living Dead at Big Lots for eighty cents. No clamshell, just the disc in a cardboard sleeve. I also nabbed A Fistful of Dollars for 3 bucks - a double-sided disc with both widescreen and P&S versions.

Dollar General has a larger selection of newer titles. All DVDs are $5 or less. I've seen Million Dollar Baby, Constantine, Harry Potter 1-3, Terminator 3, and Matrix 2 & 3. Then there's a few anime titles and the usual straight-to-video crapola.

I got a compilation DVD with four spaghetti westerns for $2.50. Also exorcised widescreen versions of Constantine and a 2-disc Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for $5 each.

The neat find was a 2-disc Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in the flip-out case with cardboard sleeve for $5. The dialogue even refers to the "Philosopher's Stone" rather than the "Sorceror's Stone" -- a change made exclusively for the US release. I'm guessing this is the Canadian release since the disc is region 1 and the video must be NTSC format. The only downside is the film is pan and scan, but I think the title and dialogue differences make it a cool find nonetheless.

I have to visit Dollar General again. Back in the summer, DG had Band of Brothers on video for $10. I'm kicking myself for not picking it up.

I did find It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World at the Family Dollar Store for $5 the other year.

I picked up a couple of classic sci-fi movies from WM. Just in time for Halloween. Them!, the giant ant movie from the 50s and the hugely underrated 80s classic, the Hidden. They wee $4.88 each.

WM had a bunch of Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th movies, too, for $4.88.

OT a bit, but Best Buy has a DVD pack of classic 50s sci-fi and horror movies for $19.99: Tarantula, the Mole People (one of my favorite cheese movies), the Incredible Shrinking Man, the Monolith Monster, and Monster on Campus. This is the first time the Mole People has been available on DVD. The set is a Best Buy exclusive.

I looked at the bin as I walked by it this morning. The only titles I remember were Lawnmower Man, What Dreams May Come, and The Best of Gallager. I think there was a Denzel Washington film in there.

I haven't seen Lawnmower Man since it was in the theater. It has to be dated. What Dreams May Come wasn't bad, but not something I would watch enough to warrant a purchase.

Sure, I don't have 1-4 or 6, and they started doing season boxes after that point, making it a pretty odd-looking complete set, but no way was I passing up on that.

There was only one copy, and no other TMNT DVDs. Sad, really. Now that I have one, I must have them all. Or at the very least the one with the classic "The Shredder Gets Splintered" episode.

Stopped by WM this morning while waiting for a business to open. It was work related.

But I perused the bin/book cases. (In my area, WM has moved from the bins to displays or book cases. It makes it nicer.)

But I found the Green Berets for $7.50, U-571 for $5.50 and a two-disc documentary on the battle of Iwo Jima for $5.50.

The last one intrigued me for some time. One of the history web sites I visited advertised the same DVD for $39.95.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day - 2-Disc Extreme DVD Edition - Widescreen
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines - 2-Disc Edition - Widescreen

Found them all in the 5.50 DVD dump bin but when they rang up they were all 4.88 except for T2 which was $5.00. Saw Air Force One as well but it was FOOLscreen.

There's been a lot of films I would have bought had they not be FOOLscreen, Road To Perdition, Catch Me If You Can, The Terminal, and Down With Love to name a few. It makes me so made when I find a film I like in there and it's the FOOLscreen version. I love cheap DVDs but I won't pay ANY price for half a film.

You guys realize that quite a few movies are actually filmed in "Full frame" then have the black bars put along the top and bottom for theatrical release, right? Therefore, in those instances watching a widescreen version you are actually seeing less than what was originally captured on film.

A lot of movies are shot that way, from what I understand, but the matting is intended to be there by the movie's director and DP. An example of this being a problem is the Back to the Future DVD set, where BTTF2 was incorrectly matted in a couple shots so practical elements like cranes and hoses were in shots they weren't supposed to be - Universal eventually issued replacements for those disks. They haven't shot a lot of movies in aspect-ratio (4/3) since the '50s because the technology to fill eyes better just completely blew through. You don't see in that 4/3 square, you see in a widescreen ratio, so movies accommodate both eyes when they do widescreen. It also helps make it more grand a vista than you can get from standard TV shooting.


Picked up 4 movies from WM cheap bins during SDCC, I blame Tycho and his other guest Halley for dragging me right to the bin!
- Cheech & Chong's Up In Smoke

Not exactly were these in the Cheap Bins, or exactly at Wal-Mart (Target instead) but I am sure they sell them at Wal-Mart, but for those who passed up on classic Simpson's or South Park Season DVDs, they are now just $19.99each. It sure beats the $39.99 most of these were when they debuted.

For the Simpson's Seasons 1-6 were at this price, with seasons 7-8 at $29.99 and season 9 at $39.99. I believe for South Park the first 5 seasons were less than 20 bucks. A great find for those who have passed up these babies.

You don't see in that 4/3 square, you see in a widescreen ratio, so movies accommodate both eyes when they do widescreen. It also helps make it more grand a vista than you can get from standard TV shooting.

I thought the only reason a director would wish to shoot in full frame was to create a product for home audiences as well as theater audiences. Basically, having bars removed is much preferable to panning and scanning. That was Kubrick's take on it. Once anamorphic lenses came about, I cannot understand why anybody would want to shoot matted. Other than the reason above, I can only imagine that perhaps not all theaters had the necessary equipment to show anamorphically shot films.
