    All are presented in their original aspect ratio. Galaxy Quest is the Dolby Digital version, and has slightly different cover art. The Incredibles was just released Tuesday 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.

    • The weekend will run aproximately 51 hours from aproximately 12:01 AM Eastern Time Saturday Morning until 11:59PM Pacific Time Sunday Evening.
    • Because this is a two-day contest instead of the usual one day, there will be two winners instead of one.
    • Because I only have one copy of each DVD, there will be two different titles awarded.

    [size=+2]In Case You Were Wondering About The Troops Part[/size]​

    Due to security concerns, the military will no longer accept any mail addressed to "Any Serviceperson". So, I have been searching for an alternative way to ship the DVDs overseas.

    I have since connected with a Sacramento-based group with members I know from past events. One of the members has a son who is currently serving in Iraq. The DVDs were passed along to that person on Tuesday, March 1st, and, as far as I know, are on their way to her son. Because our troops are serving in a Islamic country, Islamic law and tradition determines what material is appropriate. Any material deemed not appropriate will be redirected to other US military units.

    The only requirement that I made when donating these DVDs is that I receive a publically releasable digital photograph of the troops holding up the DVDs. I define "publically releasable" as photos which can be republished freely without compromising the safety of the troops or military operations. I hope to have that digital photo "soon".
