With holiday shopping underway and everyone now in a frenzy (some having started as early as Thanksgiving), we thought we'd do our part to try and lighten the pressure on time (and your wallet) by offering up a few holiday giveaways. The first is a Blu-ray copy of The Watch starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade. It's a fairly family friendly flick and should fit nicely under the Christmas tree, next to your menorah, or on your Kwanzaa mat. Or all of the above. Multiculturalism for the win, folks.

So if you want to snag yourself a free Blu-ray copy of The Watch, just keep reading and we'll tell you how.

The Most Excellent "Bill & Ted" Blu-ray Giveaway

bill_ted_Banner

Your mother always used to tell you that if you kept making that face it would stick that way, but she never warned you or Keanu Reeves that the same rule applied to acting like a surfer dude. Apparently he did it so much that he's become frozen in the character he felt most comfortable in: Ted Logan of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (alongside Alex Winter as Bill, oh and George Carlin). He reprised the role in the animated TV series Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures, then in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, and then he carried it through to Parenthood, Point Break, The Matrix, Feeling Minnesota, The Matrix Reloaded, A Scanner Darkly, etc. You get the idea.  He acted that way for too long, and now he's stuck. That doesn't mean we can't enjoy it though, and to prove that we're giving away a Blu-ray copy of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.

To find out how you can win, just keep reading. Until then, in the immortal words of Abraham Lincoln, "Party on dudes!"

It really is too bad she won't live, but then again, who does? People who own Blade Runner's 30th Anniversary Collector's Edition on Blu-ray with its collectible toy police car, that's who.

Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi crime flick remains a film of visual beauty to this day, and its many questions about the nature of life, living, and what it all means has helped it endure and find new fans with each new generation of film lovers. Ridley Scott. Harrison Ford. Rutger Hauer. Sean Young. A soundtrack by Vangelis. A Philip K. Dick short story for inspiration.I might be overstepping, but Blade Runner  is quite simply a Sci-Fi masterpiece, and the 30th Anniversary Collector's Edition offers the film in four different cuts (Final Cut and three theatrical cuts) along with loads and loads of extras.

25 Easy Steps to Win "The Do-Deca-Pentathlon"

dodecapentathlon_banner

The biathlon is for chumps. The triathlon is for sissies. For the true test of manhood and talent there's a far more relevant and exciting sporting event: The Do-Deca Pentathlon. Invented by two brothers (Mark Kelly, Steve Zissis), The Do-Deca-Pentathlon consists of twenty five events to prove one's self against one's fellow man. Okay, so maybe this isn't a real thing, but it is a real comedy by real-life brothers Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass (The League) and it, like the Olympics, represents the best of all that man can accomplish in the spirit of competition. Can you find a nobler purpose for a comedy than that?

The Do-Deca-Pentathlon arrived on DVD and Blu-ray September 18th, and to honor that fact we're giving away two Blu-ray copies. To find out how you can win, just keep reading.

Win the Gumbo of Antiques and Collectibles that is "Cajun Pawn Stars"

cajun_pawn_banner

Normally, when you add "Cajun" to the title of something it's meant to imply that the once plain dish or item now has an element of spice to it. It seems strange then that History Channel's apparent definition of "spice" is a couple regular guys with a love for cars, movie, and historical memorabilia that happen to own a Pawn Shop in Louisiana. Can you handle that spiciness?! CAN YOU?! Dare you test the spicy wrath of their Cajun negotiating tactics? Do you have what it takes to face down the ragin' Cajun appraisals of a family heirloom? Whoa Nelly, you best be taking a step back. This gumbo of antiques and collectibles might be too much for you to handle, yes ma'am. Then again, maybe not. Maybe you are ready for the heat of the Cajun Pawn Stars kitchen.

If so, and you want to find out how you can win a copy of the first season of Cajun Pawn Stars, just keep reading.

We Raided Area 51 and Want to Give You the Best of the "Ancient Aliens" We Found

You probably didn't hear about our daring raid of Area 51 on the news because, well, it's the super secret compound Area 51, the fact you even know it exists is bad enough.

Or, assuming none of our story is true, we stumbled across three copies of The Best of Ancient Aliens on Blu-ray (just as good, right?) and we're giving that away instead. So, if you're someone who wants to believe that the truth is out there and that they should trust no one, this is the contest for you.

Incite Your Own "Arachnophobia", Win it on Blu-ray

arachnophobia_banner

Many people don't know about the lost verse of "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" wherein the arachnid protagonist invades a small town and nearly kills everyone with its highly toxic venom and rapid reproduction rate. Luckily, Director Frank Marshall adapted it for film under the title Arachnophobia, starring Jeff Daniels, Julian Sands, John Goodman, and Harley Jane Kozak. Not only is the film rather entertaining, it one ups Jaws in the creature feature horror factor by making you afraid to ever again put on slippers, take a shower, use a toilet, eat popcorn, or investigate an old barn. Even if you "don't mind" spiders (tough guy talk for 'I get really quiet and wait for it to stop moving so I can step on it and end any chances it might have of biting me'), Arachnophobia is about as effective a thriller as there is.

Just in time for Halloween we're giving away one copy of Arachnophobia on Blu-ray, and to find out how you can win it, you just have to keep reading.

Holy Moon Nazis! Is This Our Most Reich-ous Giveaway Ever? Win "Iron Sky" on Blu-ray

iron_sky_banner

Part of me feels pretty horrible about making a pun out of "Reich" and "righteous", but on the other hand, considering it's for Blu-ray copies of Iron Sky, an action film with its tongue buried firmly in its cheek, a really bad pun seemed like the only way to go. I mean come on, it's a film about Nazis escaping total destruction at the end of World War II by launching a rocket to the moon, colonizing it, and then staging an attack on the Earth 70 years later. If you're not approaching Iron Sky with a healthy sense of humor, a bucket of popcorn, and grim preparation for some comically bad special effects and over the top acting, then it's clearly not the film for you.

However, if you think you can handle the absurdity of Moon Nazis and if you think you can stand by the Earth army as they repel said absurdity, then this contest (and all bad Reich puns that go with it) is for you. Read on to find out how you can win Iron Sky on Blu-ray. Or, if you can't wait, just buy it on Amazon.
