Second Time’s the Charm – Win ‘Patton’ (Remastered) on Blu-ray

Readers of this site may remember the controversy that erupted back in 2008 over the problematic Blu-ray transfer for the Oscar-winning epic ‘Patton’. Credit where it’s due, 20th Century Fox offers a major mea culpa this week with a newly remastered Blu-ray that finally rectifies the mistakes of the old disc. How’d you like to win a copy for free? We can help. Follow after the page break for your chance to win.

Patton‘ of course recounts the true story of George S. Patton, the controversial American general who led successful campaigns against Axis forces during World War II, but whose quest for glory and greatness at all costs alienated other American commanders. Scripted by Francis Ford Coppola and directed by Franklin J. Schaffner, the film is a thrilling epic and a genuine masterpiece.

To win the remastered Blu-ray, all you have to do is participate in our photo caption contest by giving us a funny or clever caption for the following image. Click to enlarge:

For example: “Hello, is Al there? Yes, Al. Last name: Coholic.”

It’s that easy.

We have one copy of the Blu-ray to give away. The winner will be chosen at our own subjective discretion based on whichever responses we enjoy the most. Entries are limited to 10 per person. That should give you plenty of opportunity to craft a good submission, but will also help us to avoid any potential appearance of awarding prizes based on volume rather than quality. (Please heed this limit. You will be taken out of consideration if you submit more than 10 entries.) All entries must be submitted in the Comments section of this blog post. Please do not attempt to email them to me.

This contest is only open to entrants from the domestic United States. We will not ship internationally (whether you’re a U.S. citizen or not). Employees of High-Def Digest or Internet Brands and their families are not eligible. Standard contest rules and conditions apply. People who have won any of our previous contests within the past one year are also not eligible to win, but may get Honorable Mentions.

The deadline for entry is Friday, November 9th. The winner will be announced the following week. Good luck, everyone!

    “I don’t care how you get them, but we need all six seasons of “Hogan’s Heroes” on blu-ray, and we need them now!”

    “Knight takes Rook. Check.”

    “Listen, there isn’t any bush cover for miles around. Now unless you want to watch Simons here sh*t right out in the open, I suggest you get on constructing that outhouse NOW, Private!”

    “Damn it, mother! I told you never to call me on this…yes, I ate the banana bread you sent me and it was delicious. Listen! I’m in the middle of something important right now, I’ll call you back later!”

    “So what are you wearing right now? Oh, you dirty thing you…”

    “Yeah, I’ll have a half Hawaiian, half pepperoni pizza and a box of breadsticks. Just send it out to the front lines, we’ll get it. I’ll pay with card.”

    After an unsuccessful pilot episode, ABC decided to scrap their new comedy “Shell Shocked” about three veterans who relive the glory days of WWII in their backyard.

    The straight-to-blu-ray sequel to “For a Good Time Call” was a bit of a departure from the first film. Needless to say, it flopped horribly.

    “Listen, Ray, I don’t watch Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, and I certainly don’t know what a Lifeline Call is but you’re going to have to call me back; the reception out here is terrible!”

    “Sir, the man says he can tell me what to do because he has more patches than I do. I bet him 100 bucks that’s not true. Perhaps you can clear this up for us?”

    Yes, my wedding ring is stuck, do any of your soups offer anything to help remove it?

    Well, our soups are low in sodium, so that should cut back on the bloating in your fingers.

    “Look I want the double cheese everything pizza!” “Don’t mess up the order, there’s a guy behind me who’ll shoot me if you get it wrong.” “No, really!”
