A Bit Of DVD Bragging

I came across such an incredible deal on three movies that I just need to brag about it a bit.

On Monday in a BigLots! store, I was perusing the DVD selection coming across no-name actor after no-name actor. I think there were some brothers and sisters of famous actors. And then came the first find.

That being documentary The Kid Stays In The Picture for $4. The heart began pumping a bit faster and I thought, I should continue to search among the soft-core titles like The Sexologist in hopes that I come across even sweeter fare. And then came the next find.

Greetings, one of Brian DePalma's first films starring Robert DeNiro for $3. I began frantically searching then, throwing sucky DVD's off the shelves and on the floor in hopes of finding yet another treasure.

And there it was. The final find was A Shock To The System, the wonderfully dark comedy starring Michael Caine for $4.

Three great movies for under $12. It ain't much but it was nice for me. I guess I'm easy that way. I haven't opened them yet for fear that there aren't actually DVDs inside.

Costco has some unbelievable deals every now and then. Warner's Controversial Classics set couldn't be found anywhere online last year for less than $70, but I bought it at Costco for $42! The wondrous Alien Quadrilogy set still sells for $70 many places but Costco occasionally has it for $32. And after stupidly paying $42 for the new Rio Bravo ultimate edition, I saw at Costco last week that you can buy that set AND The Searchers Ultimate as a $40 two-pack.

Didn't see the 50 packs. I would have snagged those.

I had no idea there was a Tim Matheson/Jim Belushi movie.


I'm going to have to check out Costco. There really isn't one very close to me, but it would be worth the drive for a sweet deal on some DVDs.

I bought The Alien Quadrilogy last summer for £19.66 (just shy of US$40). It was a soccer World Cup promotion, 1966 being the last (and only) time England won it.

I haven't seen A Shock to the System for years, but it's a great movie. Good purchase, Piper.
