The "We're Men, Manly Men, Formerly in Tights" Blu-ray Giveaway


Who needs to dress up in tights to fight the forces of evil? That's silly superhero stuff. Real men run around in the woods and dive behind convenient pieces of cover as they fire guns wildly into the air. It's a proud tradition championed by the likes of Sylvester Stallone (First Blood), Arnold Schwarzenegger (Predator), and many others, and today you have a chance to win two movies in that prestigious legacy: last year's Red Dawn and this year's The Marine: Homefront. Now, don't be fooled, just because the stars of both of these films (Chris Hemsworth and Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin) dress up in tights regularly (as Thor or for the WWE), they're still men. Manly men. They're men in tights. Yeah! But no matter the medium, they're always on guard defending the people's rights. Much respect to Mel Brooks.

To find out how how you can win Blu-ray copies of Red Dawn and The Marine: Homefront, just keep reading.

Official Red Dawn synopsis

A city in Washington state awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky - shockingly, the U.S. has been invaded and their hometown is the initial target. Quickly and without warning, the citizens find themselves prisoners and their town under enemy occupation. Determined to fight back, a group of young patriots seek refuge in the surrounding woods, training and reorganizing themselves into a guerilla group of fighters. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, banding together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.

Official The Marine: Homefront synopsis

After returning to his hometown on leave, Sgt. Jake Carter learns that his sister has been abducted by a band of violent extremists. To save her, Carter launches a daring one-man assault on their base of operations...only to discover the groupÕs ruthless leader is plotting a deadly terrorist strike. With time running out, Carter realizes heÕs the only man who can stop the impending massacre -- but this American hero may have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save thousands of innocent lives.
