In recent years, the price of DVDs has skyrocketed. Stores like Barnes & Noble and CVS charge as much as $30 for some titles.
In the entertainment section of Walmart, though, there are bins filled with movies that cost just $5. The movies at the top of the pile are often obscure and terrible – consider Harriet the Spy: Blog Wars. To answer your question: no, it's not the loveable Nickelodeon movie you saw as a kid with Rosie O'Donnell, it's the contrived sequel for which no one asked.
But with a bit of searching, you can uncover an eclectic selection of films that span from early cinema classics to recent blockbusters. Here are a few DVD gems that I discovered during a recent visit:
Casino Royale (2006)
Batman Begins (2005)
Jurassic Park (1994)
The Sandlot (1993)
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006)
The Orphanage (2006)
The Karate Kid (1984)
Catch Me If You Can (2002)
