Found a selection of about 25 titles in my local Dollar Tree. All movies at least 5 years old. Found a Woody Allen film, a couple of Earnest Goes to <insert place here>, Stakeout 2. No academy award winners.
As always, for those of you who constantly whine about imperfect posts: man up or call mommy.
The same Blu-Ray titles available at the Dollar Tree are in a $5 "bargain" bin at Fry's. They are all from Mill Creek Entertainment. All of the $1.00 Blu-Rays are the titles that Mill Creek has combined onto Multiple Blu-Ray or DVD discs.
For example, None of the Dollar Tree Blu-Rays appear in their current product listing. Mill Creek apparently dumped their old stock at the Dollar Tree and combined them into 2, & 3 movie sets:
Ernest Double Feature - Ernest Goes to Camp & Ernest Goes to Jail - Blu-Ray Consenting Adults / An Innocent Man / The Marrying Man - DVD Big Business / Straight Talk / V.I. Warshawski - Triple Feature - DVD The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag / Gross Anatomy / Betsy's Wedding- Triple Feature - DVD Money For Nothing / Disorganized Crime / Another Stakeout - Triple Feature - DVD
I stopped by Dollar Tree in Central Islip, NY on my way home. They had a decent selection of Blue-rays.
I purchased 11 of them.

"Scenes From a Mall" is actually not directed by Woody Allen, he only stars in it, alongside Bette Midler. The director is Paul Mazursky.
Sadly I got it a while ago for $5 and I thought it was a good deal. At least for what it is, it really is a deal. But in comparison to $1, well, not so much.

These appear too be a really hot item. I found them at my local Dollar Tree about a month ago. They refilled the bin once, about 3 weeks ago. Since then, my local store hasn't had any dvd's or blu-rays at all. I got "Scenes From A Mall", "Gross Anatomy", "Holy Matrimony", "Miami Rhapsody", "Disorganized Crime" and "Money For Nothing". Guess i'll have to check out the giant locations, in hopes of finding the ones I passed on, when my local store had them.

Wow that's a great deal! I love movies and I'm an avid collector. Thing is my wllet gets bent if I shop Wal mart. Thanks for the tip. Here is one I found for really cheap dvds. I frequent a smaller place and theycharge like $2.00. Very liberal discounts I spent $50 and got 60 DVDs. I found them on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mike-The-Peddler/450111461709264?r...

jaghardt said: Blu ray dvd = Blu ray digital video disc.
When first invented in 1995, DVD was an initialism for the unofficial term digital videodisk. Within the next few years, certain members of the DVD Forum proposed the backronym digital versatile disc to express that DVD goes beyond video. However, according to Jim Taylor, a prominent industry figure, the forum never universally accepted this name and a 1999 report decreed that DVD was "simply three letters" and stood for "nothing". Today, usage varies and there is no universal agreement. Digital versatile disc has gained wide acceptance and is used by the official DVD charter. However, others such as Toshiba (who maintain the DVD Forum Web site) still use the original digital video disc, while Jim Taylorís FAQ still maintains that DVD has never officially stood for anything.
