I'm in for Platoon. I seem to always have bad timing any time Buy.com has these $4.99 deals, so I'm happy I managed to get one for a change.

Thanks for the heads up! Been wanting to give Raging Bull another shot after all these years. Really hated it the first time I saw it sometime in the mid 80's, but my tastes have changed quite a bit since then and it might click better with me now. $7 is just the right price to pull the trigger and find out.

Back in the early days of DVD it was Buy.com, REEL.com and 800.com that were some of the places famous for the loss-leaders. Buy.com had the absolute worst customer service where the other 2 had very good ones. It's funny that buy.com is still around all these years later and the other two have been extinct as long as the dinosaurs.

Don't forget that when Reel.com folded shop as a retailer, all open orders were transferred to Buy.com. It was a real mess because I had months worth of pre-orders. I remember you always used to save a lot more if you would pre-order it back then. Reel.com had its price match policy. Nearly all of my discs were price matched from somewhere else. There were lots of emails back and forth with the Buy.com people trying to get all the prices worked out, and even then, it was weeks, maybe even a months before I finally started to receive stuff. Needless to say Buy.com proved not to be the worthiest of successors for Reel.com. I miss that site.

Got my Platoon today. Both discs are floaters.
But for the price, I can't complain...

Wow, you brought back some good memories. Reel.com was amazing for scoring free DVDs.

OP, thanks for the heads up. I ordered Platoon.
