Not really a DVD, Blu-ray or HD-DVD deal, so I guess I'll be putting it in this forum. Noticed Rent and Starship Troopers at my local store. Didn't look for long since I don't have a PSP.

Anyone know if these are flippable anywhere?

About as flippable as VHS, thanks for the heads up though!

Cool, I haven't been to my local Dollar Tree in a long time. Might have to go check it out. I never leave places like that empty handed, even if I don't find UMD movies. I remember several years ago finding Gameboy Advance games at a place similar to Dollar Tree, but they weren't titles worth mentioning.

do they have the new Madea movie on PSP?? if so then ill buy on


I don't think so. Hollywood stop production on UMD movies years ago due to poor sales.

whats funny is I just picked up a few of these at GS a few weeks back for my younger boy, because I gave him my psp when I got the vita and we were doing a few trips in the car. He loves the movies, I got like spiderman 2 and 3, cloudy with chance meatballs, there are still some good ones out there.

Man, remember when these used to be advertised in commercials along with the DVD and Blu releases? What a ridiculous format.

Sort of wish I had one of those stores around me now. I've never watched a movie on umd but that's a really good deal.

They trade to amazon for $2-4 each depending on title. Some are less than $1 but many are more. Quick way to flip them

The Gamestops in my area still sells them for about 5-10 dollars. Lol. The only ones I enjoyed were Big Daddy, Godzilla: Final Wars, and FF7: Advent Children.

I have a few Viva La Bam UMD's and Chris Farley SNL and a few other good ones. I will check my Dollar Tree out tomorrow! Gamestop might still have UMD's, but they are still overpriced.

If you have a Gameboy Micro for sale, I would like to buy it from you!

All gamestops here still carry them as well. The gamecube selection is what is drying up here right now.

Does anyone know of other retailers besides dollar tree that sell $1 dvds and the like? There is no dollar tree within 100 miles of me so I'm looking for some alternatives.

My local PathMark had a bunch of Sonny Chiba movies for $2.

I had a few UMD movies at one point. Only ever watched them when flying. I remember getting a horrified look from the lady passenger next to me when she watched a bit of "Perfect Blue" over my shoulder. :lol:

Mine are the exact opposite. There are only a few UMD movies on the PSP rack but there's still a ton of GameCube stuff. (The good stuff is either absent or priced too high, though.)

Such a stupid format, but I like getting these when they're nice and cheap. At that price, they're worth it just for the cases alone.

When the Sony store had a clearance, I grabbed a couple of the 97 cent movies, but there wasn't much of a selection left. People in the threads were literally talking about clearing out the shelves and actually throwing away the movies and keeping the cases, though. That type of thing totally sucks for people that are actually looking to watch the movies on their PSPs...especially since they're all discontinued and getting hard to find new. Hopefully, if my Dollar Tree carries them, I'll score at least a few decent titles before someone pulls something like that.

They released Ghostbusters on UMD, So that justifies the whole format right there.

Yeah, that's pretty lame. As silly as the format may be to me, I still keep any movies/shows that are decent (in fact, I bought the Aeon Flux series not too long ago because it was cheap). I've always hated being wasteful, so if I ever come into possession of any that I don't want (and I just want to keep the cases), I make sure the discs go to a good home and I recycle the inserts if nobody wants them. If I can't get anybody to take the discs, I find ways to recycle those as well.

I went into my local store today. no UMD's but they did get a large selection of hardback books in. I picked up four nice National Geographic hardbacks.

Nice consolation prize if anything.

I just got back from Dollar Tree 2 of 3 here in Jersey lol. Picked up 16 titles for the hell of it. (1 of every umd they had)
1. Gridiron Gang
2. Angels and Demons
3. 7 Seconds
4. To Die For
5. Guess Who
6. Godzilla
7. National Security
8. Starship Troopers 3: Marauder
9. Lords of Dogtown
10. Little Man
11. Walk Hard: Dewey Cox Story
12. Charlie's Angels
13. Hollow Man

A fun fact though for those asking where these came from. There was actually one resealed Charlie's Angels with a GameStop Sticker on it. Guess GS got something for them after all lol
