    Some of you may be wondering why such a interesting selection of movies. Well, we aim to give away movies which are worth having in your collection. Lets take a look at the titles:
    • Galaxy Quest is a comedy parodying a well known science fiction show and the lives of those actors, especially since sime aliens think that they are real adventures. I have known several people who consider this one of the best Star Trek films.
    • Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence is the followup to the cult favorite Ghost In The Shell movie.
    • Millennium Actress is a surprise favorite film when a documentary film crew interviews a Japanese actress whose life unfolds in the films that she stars in. There are a few twists in this film too.
    • Spirited Away is also a favorite film, and clearly deserves the Best Animated Film Oscar. Think of it as Alice In Wonderland with fantastic imagery.
    • Standing In The Shadow Of Motown-Contributed by Richard King who says, "They played on more #1 hits than the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones and Elvis combined... Presenting the greatest hit machine in the history of popular music, 'The Funk Brothers' with some fantastic music and guests thrown in for extra measure."
    • Total Recall may not be a classic film by the Guvernator, but this special effects-filled film is fun to watch.
    • Witch Hunter Robin is the fourth volume of a good thinking-mans anime series. The STN is a organization that goes after rogue craft users (or witches). In this volume, Robin is now a fugitive from the very same organization that she once worked for.
    All are presented in their original aspect ratio. Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence and Millennium Actress are in Japanese only with English subtitles. In addition, Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence is the V4 version with corrected subtitles.

    Well, I PM-ed the last contest winner, Coribright, to pick a number. That person is Larry Caldwell who said "Take a chance... surprise me!" and elected to send a DVD to the troops. And, the DVD going to the troops is Total Recall.

    I hope nobody asks for the methodology of the drawings, as it's slightly more complicated than printing out names and putting them in a fishbowl. However, I made every attempt to ensure that the date/time of the entry doesn't affect your chances to win.

    In case you're wondering:
    Total Recall - 23
    Galaxy Quest - 20
    Take a chance - 17
    Spirited Away - 6
    Ghost In The Shell 2 - 4
    Millennium Actress - 2
    Standing In The Shadows of Motown - 2
    Witch Hunter Robin - 0

    Send it to:
    me - 48
    troops - 26
