Us Contest Results

It had been a while since we held a contest around here and I think we may need more time to get back into the swing of things. Even so, we got some pretty good responses to last week’s contest, one of which will win Jordan Peele’s Us on Blu-ray.

As explained in the original post, we challenged you to provide funny or clever captions for the following image:

And the winner is…

Honorable Mentions

As always, I’m not saying that these were the only good entries we received. However, it’s impractical to give everybody an honorable mention. If I’m forced to narrow the selection down, these were some that made me laugh the most.

  1. Csm101: Those little Zyber twins are up to no good again.
  2. njscorpio: This is what happens when you take away your kids’ tablets and say, “go play”.
  3. David S: When a game of Patty Cakes gets weird.
  4. Adam C: Jordan Peele and I saw very different versions of E.T.
  5. Ted D: “Ever seen Pulp Fiction? You know that scene in the pawn shop basement? Yeah, it’s about to get crazy up in here!”
  6. Jeremy R: “I’m not touching me! I’m not touching me!! I’m not touching me!!!”
  7. Vincent A: “Oof, Chewbacca Mom memes are dead, bro”
  8. Ronald O: Now let’s practice doing the Vulcan salute.
  9. Elio C: E.T. phone HELL!!!!
  10. Zuria: When you play Rock-Paper-Scissors and both keep throwing Paper repeatedly.

The Winner!

I wonder if some of our younger readers will even get the reference (or some of our older readers, for that matter), but as someone who grew up watching Super Friends in the late 1970s and early ’80s, Steve’s entry struck me as, “Of course. THAT has to be the right answer!” as soon as I read it.

Wonder Twin Powers…Activate!

Congratulations to Steve for winning Us on Blu-ray, and thanks to everyone else for participating in our contest.

    Congratulations Steve!
    The turnout was quite low for such a box office hit, although I thought the pic was a little difficult. Anyways, I hope we get more of these cuz it’s been a long time.

      I concur, I do enjoy these, even if they are for catalog titles or “lightly used” copies acquired for review purposes.

      It didnʼt even hold up at first airing, but itʼs what was available to watch on Saturday mornings. The best run to watch is the Challenge of the Super Friends episodes (1978, originally aired as the second half of an hour of Super Friends adventures), which feature the Super Friends (a.k.a. the Justice League of America, with famous iconic DC heroes along with some lesser‐knowns and a few contrived for the TV series) in outlandish clashes against a motley band of DC villains dubbed the Legion of Doom. The final original episode, “History of Doom”, was my introduction to postapocalyptic fiction. Note that Challenge didnʼt feature the Wonder Twins, though the first episode has quick cameo images of Zan (the male Twin) and Gleek (the Twinsʼ pet space monkey).

          Itʼs available on DVD (at least here in Region 1), but I havenʼt heard anything of a Blu‐ray release. I question whether BD would be a worthwhile upgrade—oh, I suppose the picture might benefit a tad from the Star Trek animated treatment, but even DVD might be too good for this Saturday morning junk food. (Thatʼs not to say I donʼt enjoy this junk food…)

            Thanks for the info! Since my NYC trip in 2017, I have a Region 1/A-player, so I can actually watch this (prior to 2017, I always moaned and pouted whenever a Region 1/A-ONLY disc was announced).
