Computers Are Magic – Win ‘Transcendence’ on Blu-ray

If Hollywood has taught us anything, it’s that computers will eventually gain sentience and, as their first order of business, exterminate the human race. Come to think of it, perhaps Hollywood hasn’t actually taught us anything. Oh well, whatever the case may be, you can win a free copy of the latest evil computer movie written by an automated screenwriting program.

That’s right, this week we’re giving away artificial intelligence thriller ‘Transcendence‘, in which Johnny Depp gets Lawnmower Man’ed into a computer and tries to wipe out humanity. As you do.

To win a copy of the 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: “Is he staring at me again? You’d tell me if he was staring at me, wouldn’t you?”

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, July 25th. The winners will be announced the following week. Good luck!

    Depp: Just a couple drops of Visine to get the red out… how do you feel?
    Sauron: WOW! That’s amazing.

    Depp clearly looks uncomfortable in his latest character’s strange and unfamiliar costume: a grey suit.

    I once had to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy before I made it big in the movies…you could say that I was deep in Depp!
