*~*~Movie Night Gift Basket~*~* Bloggy Giveaway

*PLEASE READ ENTIRE POST BEFORE ENTERING*

It's time again for a "Bloggy Giveaway Carnival" hosted by Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer. Click here and you will find links to all the bloggers who are hosting giveaways. There is always a huge turn-out of participants. It's not only a great way to discover new people and their blogs, but, there are loads of fabulous prizes being offered. Go check it out!

If you've been here before, you know that I love movies. Love them a lot! I enjoy all genres, but, my favorites are probably dramas; especially little-known independent type flicks that were not necessarily box-office hits. So, with that in mind, I am once again giving away a "movie night" themed gift basket. Included in the gift basket will be one of my favorite DVD movies and some snacks. The title of the movie is Tully and you can read about it here. This movie is for grown-ups and is rated R.. I repeat - this is not one to share with the kiddos; it contains adult situations and language. It's a heartbreaking story; slow-paced, but very touching.


Now, here are the rules for my giveaway:

* To enter, leave a comment on this post (make sure to include contact info)
* Winning comment will be drawn at random Friday night, Feb. 2
* Open only to U.S. residents
* Feel free to post a link to my giveaway on your blog
* If you win, please come back to my blog and tell me if you liked the movie

If you have entered my movie giveaways before, you know I'm a paranoid sort. Therefore, I always have to include a little disclaimer. Short and sweet, here it is...(1)the movie is rated R, (2)snacks may or may not contain chocolate, nuts, red dye, or other things that you may or may not be allergic to, so check the ingredients before eating.

That's it. Start posting your comments and don't forget to go check out all the other giveaways.

Ooh, would love a movie night! Plus, I'm always looking for recommendations. If you like dramas and can stand subtitles, I highly recommend an older French movie with Gerard Depardieu called Jean de Florette.
