Giveaway! 2 DVD Copies of Death Race!

I just made your Friday didn't I? Call me silly, but I like action movies that don't require any more of me than I sit back, relax and be entertained. Something tells me there are a few more of you out there just like me. If so Death Race is just the ticket for a lazy holiday evening and thanks to Universal Home Studios Entertainment I have TWO copies to giveaway. SYNOPSIS: Terminal Island: The very near future. The world’s hunger for extreme sports and reality competitions has grown into reality TV bloodlust. Now, the most extreme racing competition has emerged and its contestants are murderous prisoners. Tricked-out cars, caged thugs and smoking-hot navigators combine to create a juggernaut series with bigger ratings than the Super Bowl. The rules of the Death Race are simple: Win five events, and you’re set free. Lose and you’re road kill splashed across the Internet. International action star Jason Statham leads the action-thriller’s cast as three-time speedway champion Jensen Ames, an ex-con framed for the murder of his wife. Forced to don the mask of the mythical driver Frankenstein, a Death Race crowd favorite who seems impossible to kill, Ames is given an easy choice by Terminal Island’s ruthless Warden Hennessey (Joan Allen): Suit up and drive or never see his little girl again. His face hidden by a hideous mask, he must win the insane three-day challenge in order to gain freedom. But to claim the prize, Ames must survive a gauntlet of the most vicious criminals—including nemesis Machine Gun Joe (Tyrese Gibson)—in the country’s toughest prison. Trained by his coach (Ian McShane) to drive a monster Mustang V8 Fastback outfitted with 2 mounted mini-guns, flamethrowers and napalm, an innocent man must destroy everything in his path to win the most twisted spectator sport on Earth. If you're feeling revved up and want to win one of two copies of "Death Race," then either leave a comment here or email me at sqt1969(at)gmail(dot)com under the header "Race" to enter. Be sure I can reach you easily. If I cannot reach the winner within 48 hours I give the prize to the next entrant. Winners will be randomly chosen by Friday, January 2nd. Open in the U.S. only. Good luck!

I love Strahan...but why does he continue to make the choices he makes. It's time for him to take a deep breath and wait. Or better yet, maybe start his own production company and do something that will showcase some of his talents. And this man has talent...not just his testosterone appearance (which women seem to like) or his ability to move...but his acting chops. I'm telling you..he can act. I see bits of it in each film and I keep thinking...good god, man do something more.

Look at Daniel Craig. A great physical actor and a hunk. But look at some of the risks he's taken with some of his roles. One of the killers in "Infamous"; Ted Hughes in "Sylvia" (a film about Sylvia Plath); one of the Israeli Mossad in "Munich"; and soon will star in "I, Lucifer".

When Craig's career as an action star ends, he'll still have a career as a serious actor, he'll have that resume. He won't have to struggle as Sean Connery did before finding legitimacy.

And Strahan? It's time for him to start showing his ability. Or else it will be too late and he'll join the ranks of such names as Dolph Lundgrum, Jean Claude Van Damm, and that "Highlander" guy...and nobody wants that.

Did you ever see "The Bank Job?" It's the only serious film I've seen Statham in and he is good. It's also based on a true story. You might find it interesting. I know he's an English actor and did some Guy Richie films but I haven't seen them so I don't know if they required much of him in the way of acting. According to his bio he is making a movie that he collaborated on that's supposed to be a kind of remake (a loose one) of "Treasure of the Sierra Madre." So you might get to see him in something less action oriented in the near future.

I totally agree with you. There's nothing better than sitting back with some popcorn and an action movie that doesn't need any brain usage, lol.
