    All are presented in their original aspect ratio. Galaxy Quest is the Dolby Digital version, and has slightly different cover art. Hellboy is the two-disc widescreen edition, and has no relation to Adam Malis. North By Northwest is in the "snapper", not keep case. Spirited Away won best animated Oscar. Total Recall has a different DVD cover that what is shown here, but is the special edition. Witch Hunter Robin is part of a good anime series.

    So does this mean that if I win this giveaway, I would also still be elegibile to win the Amazing Race contest? The rules seem to contradict each other.

    Sounds like eligibility is maintained - probably could have just said that ;)

    Most 2nd place prizes are equivalent to a DVD anyway.

    I just wanted a clarification. It said "future contests", but your's was started prior, so it could be deemed a past or current contest. I just didn't want to sacrifice my $200 Dish Depot prize for a DVD. :D

    The rule has been modified. The rule was put into place because with most DBSTalk contests (such as Mark Lamutt's Survivor contest), the prize was more substantial than a DVD priced no more than $20. Why should winning a DVD disqualify you from winning the Amazing Race contest? That's why they are classified as "second place prizes" for eligibility reasons.

    Hope that either clears things up, or confuses things even more. :D
