Giveaway: Warner’s 90th Anniversary Blu-ray Bundle [ended]


In honor of Warner Bros. Pictures’s 90th Anniversary on April 4, 1923, the studio is releasing a handful of their films on Blu-ray for the first time. You can get a good look at some of their amazing 100-film and 50-film collections here. I was lucky enough to get copies of three of their most lauded films on Blu-ray for review, Best Picture winners: Grand Hotel, Mrs. Miniver and Driving Miss Daisy. I am happy to report these films look amazing in their new Blu-ray transfers. Unfortunately, I can’t screencap Blus on my Macbook, so you’ll have to take my word for it. If you’d like to see for yourself, you can enter a giveaway for all three films by leaving a comment below. The only stipulation is you must be a U.S. resident (sorry international readers, Warner Bros. makes these rules, not me!) So just leave a comment and I will pick one winner at random on Monday!

[edit] Congratulations to Candice, whose comment was chosen via a random number generator!

Contest: Enter To Win The 70th Anniversary Edition of Citizen Kane


CONTEST CLOSED. Congrats to Caroline!

The good people at Warner Brothers have set me with up with a free download of the 70th Anniversary edition of Orson Welles’ masterpiece Citizen Kane for one of my lucky readers. Leave a comment with your email or twitter (so I can tell you if you won!) and I’ll pick a winner at random on Tuesday. The download comes with all the special features.

Warner Brothers is releasing this fantastic 70th Anniversary edition on DVD, Blu-Ray and as a digital download from iTunes on Tuesday. They’re also running a contest to win an iPad on the official Citizen Kane Facebook page.

I simply cannot wait for this new edition. I saw Citizen Kane recently on the big screen at the TCM Classic Film Festival and the new print was so crisp and beautiful. I hope the rest of you are as excited as I am!
