Malcolm X Blu ray

FINALLY on Blu-ray... Spike Lee's Malcolm X. 

It was released on January 31st, and if you haven't already picked up your copy, consider entering the S&A Blu-ray giveaway and ya just might win 1 of 3 discs that we've been granted to give away.

Priced at about $30, the 2-disc Blu-ray set includes a few extras like:

- Commentary with Spike Lee, cinematographer Ernest Dickerson, editor Barry Alexander Brown, and costume designer Ruth Carter

- By Any Means Necessary: The Making of Malcolm X documentary

- Deleted scenes with introduction by Spike Lee

- Bonus DVD - 1972's Academy Award-nominated documentary Malcolm X

- 40-page book containing production photos from and information on the film, which starred Denzel Washington as Malcolm X.

So, pretty much the same extras you'd get on the 2-disc DVD.

What do you have to do to enter the contest?

Simple - read Manning Marables 2011 tome on Malcolm X and write an essay on a topic of your choosing from within the book :)

JOKING! Jeez... relax.

But really, that book should be on your reading list if you haven't already read it.

Anyway so here's all I ask of you - submit your answers to these 3 questions to my email address (obensont@gmail.com) with the words "Malcolm X Giveaway" in the subject line:

1 - In what 2 Oscar categories was the film nominated?

2 - Angela Bassett also played Betty Shabazz in what other film?

3 - In the film's opening sequence, what infamous video is being played along with Malcolm's/Denzel's speech?

That's it! Again, email me your answers to obensont@gmail.com, with the words "Malcolm X Giveaway" in the subject line. 

You have until Tuesday, February 21 at Noon Eastern Standard Time!

I will then randomly select 3 winners from all the correct responses I get and announce on the site that afternoon. PLEASE don't submit your responses in the comment section below. Send them to me as instructed. 

Got it? 

Good!
