caption 100 bloody acres

Not everyone agrees that horror and comedy can work together in unison, but those people are fools. Insidious, Return of the Living Dead, and Cabin in the Woods are just a few examples of movies that mix laughs and gore (and/or scares) to near genre perfection. Not to be outdone the beautiful land of Australia has gotten into the action with 100 Bloody Acres. It’s heavier on the laughs than the scares, but it’s chock full of the red stuff. And now you can win your very own copy on Blu-ray! All you have to do to win is hit the comments section below and offer up your best caption for the picture above by end of day Tuesday (10/1). From there, we’ll choose a random winner (or the one that makes us laugh the loudest) to receive a Blu-ray of this very funny, very bloody, and very Australian movie. It’s that simple. Winners must live in the U.S. No P.O. Boxes. OK? The film is a sweet little tale of two brothers struggling to keep their fertilizer company afloat without sacrificing quality. Instead, they’re sacrificing people to maintain quality. It’s tough being a small business owner these days. 100 Bloody Acres hits Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on Tuesday, October 1st. Check out the trailer and official synopsis below.

Bully Contest

One of the most popular and powerful documentaries of last year, Lee Hirsch’s Bully is a film about the continuing crisis of bullying, which affects kids nationwide. In our own review, we call it “an intense, heartbreaking movie that every parent and school official should see.” Now it’s also a particularly important topic relevant to discussions of school violence. And it finally arrives on home video this Tuesday (February 12) on the heels of winning the Audience Choice award at the 2013 Cinema Eye Honors and finishing out the year as the fourth highest-grossing doc of 2012. You can go ahead and buy a copy right away, or you can try to win a DVD from Film School Rejects, and we’ll throw in a couple promotional anti-bullying rubber wristbands, on which are printed “IT’S TIME TO TAKE A STAND.” The DVD, from Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Compay, features a bunch of bonus tracks, including six deleted scenes (half of which star the teen subject Alex and then one each for Kelby, Caine and Jake). There are also other videos of Alex updating us on how he’s doing today and his appearance on Good Morning America. Another bonus video stars Meryl Streep talking about the film and the issue.

Dan Harmon at Comic-Con

A long time ago, there used to be a show on television called Community, and everyone loved it because it was stirringly funny, used the language of culture in order to explore the dimensions of humanity, and because Alison Brie had the whole sexy innocence thing down to a science. Or an art. Or some kind of art-based science. Some claim the show will eventually return, but even if it does, it will do so without creator Dan Harmon. Fortunately for all of us, he’s been touring the country with his friends, trying to find people willing to become citizens of “Harmontown.” He’s bringing that show (along with Marc Maron, Duncan Trussell and Bobcat Goldthwait) back home to Los Angeles, and now you can win a pair of tickets to their Homecoming program at the Egyptian Theater this Monday (2/4). We’ll even personally  introduce you to Harmon and his special guests. So how do you enter the contest?

Up Box SEt

Update: As it turns out, the box set we’re giving away does actually include 49 Up, so now you get seven installments! This week, in the midst of celebrating the theatrical release of 56 Up (see my review), I heard some unfortunate news. Most of the Up series has recently gone out of print in the U.S. This should only be temporary, but at the moment you can’t buy a copy of First Run’s DVD box set that includes Seven Up!, 7 Plus Seven, 21 Up, 28 Up, 35 Up and 42 Up (nor the one that also includes 49 Up). The only installments available, to get separately, are 42 Up and 49 Up. Of course, you can still currently view all of these documentaries by streaming on Netflix or Amazon. However, any true movie fan (let alone documentary lover) needs to physically own this monumental series, through which filmmaker Michael Apted (taking over from original director Paul Almond) has been following the lives of about a dozen individuals for half a century, since they were 7-years-old. Fortunately, for one of you readers, Film School Rejects has one of the last remaining copies of the seven-film box set (the one that goes up to 49 Up) to give away. And we’re going to have a bit of fun with this drawing by only qualifying those who do the following:

This contest is now closed. Thank you for entering! This week is a banner one for Sir Nicolas Cage (what? he hasn’t been knighted yet? who cares!), as today marks Cage’s birthday and the day before the home video release of his Stolen on DVD and Blu-ray. And you thought your last birthday was special! To mark the release of Stolen (which, in case you didn’t know, re-teams Cage with his Con Air director Simon West for another action thriller that involves Cage having to be badass and clear his name in a plot that also involves fast-moving vehicles), we’re giving away a very special prize pack of Cage-starring Blu-rays. But you’re going to have to work for them. Our Super Special Happy Birthday to You, Nicolas Cage / Stolen Is Out on DVD and Blu-ray Tomorrow Prize Pack includes Blu-rays of the follow titles: Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Con Air, Face/Off, Kick-Ass, Moonstruck, and National Treasure.

giveaway_archer 3

Did you hear that Skyfall passed the one billion dollar mark recently at the international box-office? Yeah, pretty cool. But you know who’s not impressed with James Bond’s latest accomplishment? Archer, Sterling Archer. FX’s infamous secret agent could give a flying screw (a move he patented by the way) about Bond and his movie. Ask Archer for his opinion on any film in the franchise, and he’ll most likely reply “It’s no Gator.” Which is true of course. And to celebrate his complete indifference on the subject we’ve been authorized to give away two copies of Archer‘s third season on DVD. How can you win? Easy… leave a comment below telling us your favorite spy-related movie *that isn’t part of the Bond series.*

This contest is now closed. Thanks for entering! While some of you may have spent the Wednesday before Thanksgiving at your very own high school reunion (as seems to be the tradition, so Zack and Miri Make a Porno remind us), like most things, it’s an experience that seems to go down much more smooth when consumed cinematically, and in the comfort of your own home.

Yes, that will fill up your home video collection quite nicely. To win one (1) prize pack, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know the title of your favorite high school-centric film (be it The Breakfast Club or Fast Times at Ridgemont High or Clueless or anything else close to your heart).

This contest is now closed. Thank you for entering! Laika Entertainment returns to screens with their first new film since their Academy Award-nominated Coraline with Sam Fell and Chris Butler‘s ParaNorman, a charming as all get-out 3D stop-motion comedy thriller about a boy with some very special (and very weird) capabilities. Young Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee) doesn’t have a friend in the world – a living friend that is – because he can talk to ghosts and witches and, as it turns out, zombies. Those skills might not fly in the American middle school, but they certainly come in handy when his town (already saddled with a witch-hunting past) is overrun by the brain-eaters. To get you ready to battle whatever monsters who might wander into your town, we’re giving away one (1) prize packs from ParaNorman to one (that is 1) lucky winner. The grand prize pack includes: a $25 Visa gift card, a t-shirt, a keychain, a notebook, a pair of slippers (like Norman’s own), a toothbrush (also just like Norman’s!), and a backpack. To win one (1) prize pack from Sam Fell and Chris Butler’s ParaNorman, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know what your favorite old school horror film is (Norman is a big fan of classic thrillers and chillers). Please also provide your email address in your comment. This contest is only open to U.S. residents. The contest will close on Wednesday, August 15th, at […]

Rachel Weisz is one spectacularly talented actress. She doesn’t get the award accolades of Meryl Streep, but she’s as good. She doesn’t get the hubba-hubba comments of Jessica Biel, but she’s as beautiful. And she doesn’t get the high profile, big budget blockbuster roles of Kristen Stewart, but she’s, well, she’s older. Her latest film is sumptuous period drama, The Deep Blue Sea, that finds her playing a young wife trapped in an unexciting marriage to an esteemed judge. A chance meeting with a RAF pilot (Tom Hiddleston) leads to a tumultuous affair that may very well be the end of her. Music Box Films released the film on Blu-ray/DVD earlier this week, and in addition to the highly acclaimed film itself the disc includes commentary from director Terence Davies, two special ‘making-of’ features and interviews with Weisz and Hiddleston. Keep reading to see how you can win a copy of The Deep Blue Sea on Blu-ray.

Editor’s note: This contest is now closed. Thank you for participating! You can’t choose your family. You can certainly choose to get away from them, but that doesn’t change who they are and that you’re truly stuck with them forever. In Nancy Savoca’s Union Square, Jenny (Tammy Blanchard) thinks she’s escaped her nutty family (including her sister Lucy and their mom, played by Patti LuPone) after years of estrangement, but when flighty Lucy (Mira Sorvino) suddenly shows up at Jenny’s apartment with some really unexpected news, that all changes. To remind you that, hey, everyone’s family is nuts, we’re giving away one (1) signed poster from Union Square. The standard one-sheet poster has been signed by Mira Sorvino, Tammy Blanchard and director Nancy Savoca. To win one (1) signed poster from Nancy Savoca’s Union Square, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know the title of your favorite film about dysfunctional families (we’ll leave it to you and your tastes to pick “fun” one). Please also provide your email address in your comment. This contest is only open to U.S. residents. The contest will close on Friday, July 13th, at 8:00PM PST. The winner will be chosen at random to receive one signed Union Square poster as described above. After the break, check out a look at the poster (this version is unsigned) and the film’s official trailer.

This contest is now closed. Thank you for entering! Armageddon films have been done, pardon me, to death. Packed with big emotions and big explosions, we’re rarely granted a fresh take on a bloated genre, by Lorene Scafaria‘s Seeking a Friend for the End of the World takes all that worldwide drama to a much smaller level – to the drama between two people at the end of the world. Starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, the film focuses on the pair of Dodge and Penny as they try to navigate their way through a world that’s run out of time. It’s sweet and funny and more than a little sad, and it’s the perfect new entry into its genre. To celebrate the opening of the film, we’re giving away two very fun prize packs from the film, both crammed with stuff you might need during Armageddon (lip balm, of course!) and stuff you just might want (glow sticks, obviously). To get you prepped for the end of the world, we’re giving away two (2) different prize packs from Seeking a Friend for the End of the World to two (that is 2) lucky winners. The grand prize pack includes: a $50 Fandango gift card, the film’s official soundtrack on CD, a t-shirt, a tote bag, lip balm, a shot glass, a glow stick and bracelet, and a key chain. The additional prize pack includes: the film’s official soundtrack on CD, a t-shirt, a tote bag, lip balm, a shot glass, […]

This contest is now closed. Thank you for entering! Is there anything better than Nicolas Cage playing an unhinged dude who will stop at nothing to achieve personal justice? In Roger Donaldson‘s Seeking Justice, Cage does just that after his wife (January Jones) is brutally attacked and he’s offered support by Guy Pearce, a mysterious stranger with his own aims and secrets. As you can likely expect, they’re not selfless aims and they’re not fluffy secrets. With Seeking Justice hitting DVD and Blu-ray next week, we’re excited to offer a very special Blu-ray prize pack filled with films that all tap right into the themes of the Cage-starrer. Dirty cops. Dirty deeds. All on your own television. This prize pack includes Blu-rays of The Son of No One, Brooklyn’s Finest, Texas Killing Fields, Righteous Kill, and Seeking Justice. That’s quite a bit of crooked law enforcement to deal with all at once. To win the prize pack, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know what your favorite film is that centers on dirty cops and crooked deeds (no worries, it doesn’t have to be one in this prize pack). Please also provide your email address in your comment so we can contact you if you win. This contest is only open to U.S. residents. The contest will close Wednesday, June 20th at 10AM EST/1PM PST. The winner will be chosen at random to receive one (1) Blu-ray prize pack as described […]

This contest is now closed. All winners will be emailed. Thank you for participating! For fans of Stephenie Meyer‘s “The Twilight Saga” and its cinematic counterparts, saying goodbye to the series when the final film, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 this fall will be tough stuff. Fortunately, Meyer already has a brand new film based on one of her books ready to go, and it’s one that will appeal to both fans of Twilight and those who have never gotten the teen vampire love story craze. Meyer’s “The Host” is a more adult book that explores similar themes to those addressed in “The Twilight Saga,” but with a much more mature spin. Also, there are aliens (a lot of aliens). And a well-sketched post-apocalyptic Earth for them to populate. The film is officially described as “an enchanting and fateful story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war. Our world is invaded by an unseen enemy, humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over, while their bodies remain intact. Most of humanity has succumbed.” The film will star Saoirse Ronan, Diane Kruger, Max Irons, Frances Fisher, William Hurt, Jake Abel, and many more. The Host has been written by Meyer, along with director Andrew Niccol (who knows a thing about dystopian futures, having written and directed Gattaca and In Time and written The Truman Show). To get you ready for The Host the movie, we’re giving away five (5) copies of “The […]

To get you ready to camp out with Moonrise Kingdom, we’re giving away two (2) prize packs from the film to two (that is 2) lucky winners.
