Blu-ray.com and MGM Home Entertainment are offering three lucky Blu-ray.com members the opportunity to win a copy of Platoon, the harrowing, Academy Award-winning war film from director Oliver Stone starring Charlie Sheen, Tom Berenger, Willem Dafoe and Forest Whitaker, among others. The film not only took home a Best Picture Oscar , it earned Stone a Best Director win. Its Blu-ray debut arrives Tuesday, May 24th.
Blu-ray.com members can earn two separate entries in the contest:
To earn one entry in the giveaway, simply participate in the Classic War Films Poll located in the Forum. (There are no right or wrong answers.)
To earn a second entry, post a comment on the Platoon Giveaway post on the Blu-ray.com Facebook page. (Members are welcome to "Like" the giveaway post or the Platoon page on Blu-ray.com. Just keep in mind that "Likes" appear on your Facebook friends' News Feeds; comments do not.)
The contest is open to all Blu-ray.com members (membership is completely free, click here to join). Entrants will never be asked or required to post any personal information whatsoever on Blu-ray.com or Facebook, and will only ever be identified by their Blu-ray.com username. After claiming their prizes, winners will be contacted exclusively via Blu-ray.com private messages. Winners will be asked to provide a valid mailing address as well, but their personal information will not be shared or retained in any way. Maintaining our membership's privacy is of the utmost importance. The contest will close on Tuesday, May 24th at 11:59pm EST, and three randomly selected winners will be contacted soon thereafter.
MGM has provided the following two film clips and mini-featurette as well:
On a related note... I have the UK version of this and was VERY disappointed with the picture quality. It's one of those discs where you have to go and look at your DVD copy to check that it is indeed an improvement (Good, Bad, Ugly, I'm looking at you!).
The extras are great if you didn't buy the double dip on DVD but the transfer is lacklustre, so be warned if you don't win this great giveaway.
