Win a Free “Unbroken” Blue Ray DVD…Just Because!

Unbroken-500-post

I haven’t seen ‘Unbroken’, but the movie started life as a Laura Hillenbrand book. And if Angelina Jolie et. al did anywhere near the job with ‘Unbroken’ that that was done with ‘Seabiscuit’, it’s probably worth a view. Anyway, the producers want to give TTAG readers some free DVDs. Why? No idea, but who are we to decline free stuff for our readers? It is, after all, a war movie and as you may have heard, they tend to use a lot of guns in wars. So if you’re interested, enter a comment below and we’ll choose nine lucky winners to receive a free Unbroken Blue Ray DVD. You’re welcome . . .

Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie directs UNBROKEN, the epic drama adapted from the wildly popular New York Times Bestseller about the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louie Zamperini. Own UNBROKEN on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD March 24th from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

    Hey, $0 for a Blu-Ray sounds like a good deal to this cheap Jew.

    Here’s to hoping my streak of unsuccessful give-a-ways does not remain Unbroken.

      Lets just hope that this isnt a prank.

    Guns? In wars? Shirley you jest.

    1. avatar Bob Wall says:

      Gotta go for it… “DON’T CALL ME SHIRLEY!”

      1. avatar Carry.45 says:

        It’s a sin to let that go unfinished. You’re a good man.

    Happy April 1st everybody.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      Hm.

      Yeah, does TTAG have a history of pranking on April Fool’s?

      1. Nope. This is for realz. Promise.

  5. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    Free is good. I was a bit miffed about the pic being pretty much shut out of the Oscars….

    1. avatar the ruester says:

      Nice.

  6. avatar T Rogers says:

    Thanks and really thanks if I am a lucky winner by chance.

  7. avatar Jedi Wombat says:

    The book was fantastic, highly recommended. Louis Zamperini really was an incredible person.

  8. avatar Danny Griffin says:

    Now I gotta buy a blu-ray DVD player.

    1. avatar JR Pollock says:

      I’m not positive, but I think Blue Rays will play in DVD players, you just won’t get the higher definition.

      1. avatar Jim R says:

        Nope. DVDs will play in a Blu-Ray player, but a DVD player can’t play Blu-Ray.

      2. avatar Yellow Devil says:

        Some Movies nowadays comes packaged with both Blu-ray, DVD and digital download copy. But it will be marked on the front, and it’s a separate disk for each of them.

    2. avatar Bob says:

      Playstation3 or 4. You get blu ray player and all the other goodies of the PS.

  9. avatar Red in Texas says:

    Free is free

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      So is head lice and crotch-crabs. 🙂

  10. avatar Frank Masotti says:

    To be the smart a$$ in the room. How much will shipping cost? 🙂

    1. avatar NYC2AZ says:

      $27.99

      😛

  11. avatar Powers says:

    Only know the story, haven’t seen it, but tell them thanks! Never hurts to advertise and tap into a large market such as the gun community.

  12. avatar Observer says:

    Why not?

  13. avatar Timmer says:

    If it’s free, it’s for me!

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      “If it’s free, it’s for me!”

      So are STDs.

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        No way. I know a guy who spent $100 for his.

  14. avatar Seth says:

    In for the win. Worth the watch, save one for yourself.

  15. avatar Geoff PR says:

    Louis “Louie” Zamperini died just last year (July 2, 2014) at age 97.

    The Wiki page gives a brief rundown on Zamperini, who put up with more than most could ever hope to stand.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Zamperini

    Just before he died, he completed his autobiography:

    Don’t Give Up, Don’t Give In – http://www.amazon.com/Dont-Give-Up-In-Extraordinary/dp/0062368338

    Laura Hillenbrand’s biography ‘Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption’ is what the movie (that I haven’t yet had a chance to see) was based on.

    Hillenbrand was the author of ‘Seabiscuit’ and is a highly talented writer. I personally don’t have a huge interest in horses, even though my sisters had them growing up, Hillenbrand puts you right in the story and I found ‘Seabiscuit’ an excellent read.

  16. avatar Rick W. says:

    I didn’t get a chance to see it as well, but I will certainly jump at the opportunity for a free copy…

  17. avatar ClayinUT says:

    This is a great book! I cant wait to see the movie.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      “This is a great book! I cant wait to see the movie.”

      BitTorrent 🙂

  18. avatar foodog says:

    Its available for rent at Amazon. $4.99 SD.

  19. avatar Jeff, Alabama says:

    Count me in.

  20. avatar MichaelP. says:

    Count me in! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  21. avatar Jim R says:

    Hey sure why not? I’ll throw my hat in the ring for a free movie.

  22. avatar SJ_Nick says:

    Sure why not

  23. avatar Mmmtacos says:

    Sure, I like free stuff… and Angelina Jolie. Wait, she doesn’t star in this. Hmm. I’ll have to actually watch the extra features I guess.

  24. avatar arsh says:

    Haven’t seen it but hey I’ll watch it

  25. avatar mig says:

    Hmmm, Hollyweird offering freebies to a pro 2A group. Something doesn’t seem right. I wonder if they aren’t offering copies that weren’t pressed properly. But Hey, they’re ‘Unbroken’. Or maybe these are the copies they made specifically with only advertisements from ‘Mums against Guns’

    I’m getting better at ignoring stupidity but could always use more practice, so if these are the ones with the bad advertisements, I’ll use it as practice if you’ll send one. If it’s a bad press, then I’ll use it for target practice. Either way, I’m good.

    1. avatar the ruester says:

      Brangelina support 2a. It’s nice to see some real hollywood muscle support our rights, for a change. Seems like all you hear lately is foreign actors slamming the constitution.

  26. avatar A-Rod says:

    Sweet!

  27. avatar John says:

    I read the book. It was a well written and compelling story.

    I can’t imagine how hard his life was in that period. From being shot down, to one POW camp to another POW camp, his psychopathic jailors, to his eventual rescue. It was all to harrowing with few bright spots.

    It was both easy to read yet hard to hear. I recommend it.

  28. avatar JeffR in IL says:

    Saw it when it was in theaters. Quite well done even though it obviously wasn’t able to cover all the material in the book for time reasons.

  29. avatar Governmentknowsbest says:

    The case says Unbreakable but the DVD is Bowling for Columbine….

  30. avatar Rick says:

    Ive been waiting for a reason to buy a blue ray. I think my laptop plays them already.
    HD guns!

  31. avatar John E says:

    Unbroken is a great war film for sure. Any film that shows survival on the deep blue sea always gets my vote. There was gun play, but the ballistic violence isn’t what stands out in my memory.

  32. avatar Wilsontx says:

    I’m in if you’re bent on giving them away.

  33. avatar Tom says:

    April’s fools? Maybe, but still worth the 14 seconds it will take to enter!

  34. avatar Ralph says:

    Thank goodness it’s an Unbroken disk. Broken disks are very hard to play.

  35. avatar Joshua says:

    I’d like a copy. I haven’t seen the movie yet but the book was fantastic!

  36. avatar Ing says:

    Sure, I’ll bite. (I hate April Fool’s Day.)

  37. avatar Pencotron says:

    Weeee – Freeee

  38. avatar Marc says:

    My heart will be broken if i can’t watch Unbroken!

  39. avatar Ddub says:

    I’ll take a free DVD.

  40. avatar Dale_ ND says:

    Sign me up.

  41. avatar Chip Bennett says:

    Hey sure, why not? This is actually a movie I was wanting to see.

  42. avatar RocketScientist says:

    might as well

  43. avatar John says:

    I’m looking forward to seeing this movie. I need to pick up a copy of the book, I read an impressive bio of him last year and he sounds like quite a guy and a great American.

  44. avatar MrMaguire says:

    always have to be wary about what you read on the internet April 1st.
    but this could be legit.

  45. avatar DT in IL says:

    Love to have one to put in my DVD library. Movie was good but didn’t cover the whole book. I’d watch it again…and probably again.

  46. avatar Usriflecaliber.30m1 says:

    Wait, Hollywood wants to give give free stuff to gun owners?

  47. avatar AJ says:

    Sure, I’ll enter.

  48. avatar DrewR55 says:

    That was very nice of them.

    It was also a decent Skynyrd song.

  52. avatar Stuck.in.CT says:

    I have about as much chance of winning this contest as being lost at sea without a paddle…er…surviving a Japanese POW camp…ummmm…I have as much chance of winning the Unbroken DVD as winning an Olympic gold medal….oh dammit to hell….I won’t win.

  53. avatar KenInCA says:

    Yup, I’m in, too.

  54. avatar 80 D says:

    I’ll spin the wheel for that.

  55. avatar Kevin says:

    While I do not own a Glock, I would love a copy of “Unbroken” the unofficial movie of Glock’s. I could watch it while I’m working on my 1911’s.

  56. avatar Robert Tyra says:

    I love this website, check it every day from work. I would indeed like a copy of this movie.

  57. avatar cdcarpeti says:

    Angie’s better (much better) half did a great job in “Fury”. Check out Fury – one of the stars of the show was the M1917 in Wardaddy’s tanker holster.

    If this flick is half as good I’ll like it.

    Right now I have a 1 in 75 chance.

  62. avatar DuroSIG556r says:

    I admit, i saw the movie in torrent form. I’d like to make up for it with a legit copy.

    Anyone putting some freshly hunted rabbit and wild leeks on the table for Easter?

  64. avatar joshua says:

    I love freebies and this website is one of my favorites.

  65. avatar Drake says:

    Great film about a great American hero. God bless Anerica.

  66. avatar Grindstone says:

    Would make a nice gift to my dad.

  67. avatar chris says:

    How about a copy of the movie for those of us who read the book as a compare and contrast. Just like this website does on firearms related issues….

  68. avatar PeterW says:

    I haven’t seen it either, well except for the first 20 minutes. It looked like it was going to be good until my Blu-Ray player decided to give me the finger and not play any more. Between the two, I’d rather have a player and no disc than a disc with no player.

  69. avatar Ken says:

    I read the book and it is quite an amazing story. Haven’t seen the movie yet. Be nice to win the DVD.

  70. avatar mchad says:

    would love to see it!

  71. avatar Ben says:

    I haven’t seen it, but have heard good reviews of it. Would love to have the DVD.

  72. avatar Stu says:

  73. avatar Ed Burton says:

    Can’t wait to watch it!

  74. avatar Franko says:

    Free stuff? As my Daddy used to say “I’ll be a horse’s hind end!”

  75. avatar Roger says:

    I listened to the audio book and it was a very fascinating book that I couldn’t put down.

  76. avatar M9A1MAN says:

    Loved the movie! Would love to own it!

  77. avatar Bill Johnson says:

    You can send a copy my way

  78. avatar Joel says:

    I just finished reading the book. Absolutely amazing how much suffering a human can endure and come out of it not only with his humanity intact but his dignity as well. It’s also quite an indictment of the unbelievable brutality of the Japanese in WW2 which they still, to this day, do not acknowledge.

  79. avatar Paul G says:

    I thought it was a movie about creating better condoms! Either way, I’m interested.

  80. avatar carlos u. says:

    It’s a great book.

  81. avatar Sean in Tampa says:

    Winner winner chicken dinner!

    I very much enjoyed reading the book but have not seen the movie

  86. avatar Jeff says:

    Great book, hope the movie does it justice.

    Oh why not.

  89. avatar Jim Kirk says:

    Good movie, was disappointed though that Hollywood basically eliminated the religious aspect of the story. But that’s typical historical revisionism for you.

    that comment, tho.

  95. avatar VaqueroJustice says:

    There’s 114 people already registered, I don’t think making another
    entry would give me a significant chance to win, so I really don’t…oh, darn.

  96. avatar Mike says:

    I meant to see this when it was out in theaters, but life issues got in the way. Wouldn’t mind having a copy to watch when it’s just me in the house.

  97. avatar Jay W. says:

    Sign me up too. Our son saw the movie and my wife read the book, which makes me the only one in the house who isn’t up to speed on the story.

  98. avatar outwardhound says:

    I like the book, but haven’t seen the movie. I also like free, thanks TTAG for the chance to win it!

  99. avatar Dan says:

    Pretty awesome story…would love to see the film.

  100. avatar Jim says:

    Great book. Count me in!

  102. avatar Buddy Eades says:

    loved the book – need to see the movie!

  103. avatar tmm says:

    I’ve heard good things about the flick. Should be a good addition to anyone’s collection.

  104. avatar dsreno says:

    I like turtles.

  105. avatar bontai Joe says:

    My wife would enjoy this movie even more than I will should we be among the lucky winners. This is considered “family viewing” at my house.

    Who still uses a disc player, instead of streaming??!

  110. avatar Shawn Graber says:

    I’ve been told that the movie downplayed Mr. Zamperini’s Christianity, which is a shame. He was a faithful man and he attributed his faith in Christ to getting him through some of the toughest moments of his life. Haven’t seen the movie for myself, so once I receive my free copy from TTAG I’ll do my own research. 🙂

  111. avatar thepotato says:

    Sure why not

  112. avatar MattM says:

    ¡Yo quiero free stuff!

  113. avatar Jay says:

    Absolutely would like to see this. “COMMENT”

  114. avatar Bill Timmins says:

    Read the book, saw the movie, both tell an incredible story. Not a war story but a story of man against man. I have known a former Japanese POW who spent the war in a POW camp. He talked about the guards who treated them with kindness more than those who were brutal. This should be used as a tool to teach what we must never let happen again.

  115. avatar eggbone says:

    Great flick! Haters of this should hate ALL John Wayne and Robert Michum war movies; all submarine WWII movies; all Iwo Jima, tank, D-Day movies. etc. Well, you get the picture.

  116. avatar Chrispy says:

    Sign me up if the giveaway isn’t over yet!

    Free war movies, yippee!!!!

    Excellent book. I just finished reading it. What an amazing story and testament to so many courageous American soldiers and air men. Sign me up.

  128. avatar Canon says:

    One of the best books I’ve ever read – would love to see the movie for free.

    what was the result? did anyone get dvds?
