Update: A winner has been chosen. Thanks to all who entered!

Second Update: I have made an incredibly unfortunate error. Swamped with work this week, I picked the winner 24 hours early thinking the end date was Saturday, my usual giveaway end day. I of course take full responsibility for the mistake. The winner has been already chosen, contacted, and he has responded. I cannot apologize enough to those planning on entering or those who were set to. I can only hope to never do anything more personally embarrassing or publicly inconvenient. As a make-up, I’ll be hosting an additional giveaway in the next week or two. While it won’t match this one in size, it should hopefully make up for the lost day. If you have additional ideas, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll respond as they come in.

Yes, it’s unfortunate, but DoBlu’s ‘Summer of Monsters‘ special has come to end… almost. At a time when we reviewed over 20 giant monster movies and Godzilla once again marched into theaters, we needed a giveaway to match that scale. So, here it is: A colossal giveaway of Blu-rays which ALL go to ONE lucky winner. It’s our most massive, extra large giveaway ever and it may never be topped.

There’s something in here for everyone. Families will love Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and when the kids are in bed, indulge in the goofiness of  duelin’ Danny’s in Trejo & Glover as they star in Bad Asses 2. We have major studio flicks like Grudge Match, Out of the Furnace, and Counselor, all the way down to indie flicks like Ping Pong Summer. Oh, you like 3D? How about the waves of Storm Surfers, the galaxy itself with Galactic Adventures and then some alien invasion with War of the Worlds Goliath? Maybe you don’t like 3D? Okay, cool. How about Gina Carano kicking butt via In the Blood or some intense car chases in The Getaway? Still no enough? Pfft. That’s fine. We’ve got a long way to go.

Get political in The Unknown Known, watch Ray Romano sniff out some crooks in Rob the Mob, the end of the world comes in Parts Per Billion, while someone finds a way to Easy Money and then learns the Art of the Steal. We’re so giveaway crazy, we’re tossing in stuff we never had a chance to review like the concert Europe: Live at Sweden Rock and the F1 documentary 1.

At this point, you’re salivating for a chance to win a Blu-ray collection the size of Netflix’s catalog (okay, not quite that big, but it’s close) and wondering what you have to do. It’s simple! We’re offering two ways of entry:

First, just leave a comment below using a Disqus account with a valid email (that’s important!) stating who one of your favorite movie monsters is – giant or human sized – and tell us why.

The second method involves following DoBlu on Twitter and then Tweeting this to announce your entry: I’m entered to win the @DoBlu Summer of Monsters giveaway which matches #godzilla in sheer size: bit.ly/1nzG8gM

Entry period runs from Friday, September 5th to Sunday, September 14th at 5 PM EST. You may leave one comment and send out one Tweet every 24 hours. Any additional entries will be voided. US entries only please. Those without valid emails attached to their Disqus account and those not following DoBlu on Twitter cannot be contacted if they win and would therefore forfeit their entry. Winner must acknowledge the winning notification within 72 hours or a runner-up will be chosen.

P.S.: Want to see more of this in the future? Consider supporting DoBlu on GoFundMe. This site is done as a passion project and requires funds to keep running. Your support ensures we stick around and provide you with all of the information needed to aid in your home video buying decisions.

Thanks to all who enter! You’re pretty dang great.

    awesome giveaway

  2. TheMantaBluRay says:

    Godzilla. He is for me the most iconic Movie Monster in the world, he has the most enduring roar & abilities, and he has been in more films I watched and loved than any other movie monster.

  3. Pete Pelfrey says:

    I have to say Ludo from Labyrinth. When I was younger, he and that movie in particular took away my fear of monsters in general.

    1. Matt Paprocki says:

      Good pick!

  4. jbl0ggs says:

    Jaws

    Honorable mentions…
    Predator
    Alien
    T-Rex from Jurassic Park

  5. Heather S says:

    Godzilla, hands down.

  7. Shemp DeYoung says:

    The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is a good one.

    1. Matt Paprocki says:

      Outside of Godzilla, it’s the best one I’m sure.

  8. Mike Miller says:

    I am going to go in a different direction and pick Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare movies. Those films always kept us on edge when we were younger(we always watched these as a group of friends).

  9. UberNerd says:

    My favorite is King Ghidorah, of Godzilla movie(s) fame. He is just the quintessential movie monster.

  10. KingPumpkin says:

    The Xenomorph from Alien. Always terrifying. Thanks for the giveaway.

  11. Jasmine Reyes says:

    I think Godzilla and King Kong are the Best!! 🙂

  12. Seth says:

    Predator is my favorite movie monster. He’s probably one of the coolest ones around – a guy you’d want on your side.

  13. Ronald Oliver says:

    My favorite movie monster is GODZILLA!!! ..because no other movie monster left as big an impact on me as a 5 year old kid growing up watching all his movies up until that point..(pun not intended, unless you like it to be.) But of course, as the years went on, I proceeded to watch every Godzilla movie that was ever made thereafter. And I have to say that I TRULY LOVED Gareth Edwards vision for the big G! And I’m looking forward to the followup, and what unfolds next! Unfortunately, I’m having a hard time waiting for it to be released in the next few years.

    1. Matt Paprocki says:

      2018 is way too far away. I’d totally exchange Star Wars for a quicker Godzilla turn-around!

    Those of you leaving your email address in your comment, you’ve misunderstood what you were supposed to do. You only have to leave your comment using Discuss and the email address that is registered to your Discuss account needs to be valid. That doesn’t mean that you write your email address along with your favorite movie monster.

  15. Jim Lipscomb says:

    I remember watching Godzilla in the theaters as a kid and all the young movie goers would clap for the giant lizard. Definitely Godzilla.

  16. Zac Richey says:

    My favorite movie monster has always been the Xenomorph from Alien. It’s eerie and frightening at the same time.

  17. Kelly Garcia says:

    I love the Marshmallow man from Ghost Busters! Thank you! Amazing collection!

  18. Kelly Garcia says:

    I followed on Twitter and tweeted.

  19. Jeska Dzwigalski says:

    One of my all-time favorite movie monsters is the T-Rex in ‘Jurassic Park’.

    Although it may seem tame by crazy monster movie standards, I’ll never forget watching that film as a kid in the theater in 1993 and being CONVINCED the dinosaur was going to jump off the screen. Especially when he attacks the two kids in the car and tries to eat them through the busted sunroof! Still gives me shivers as an adult.
