Celebrate Midroad Movie Review’s 500th post with a Halloween home video giveaway!

500th post Halloween giveaway

Enter to win in celebration of my 500th post!

Midroad Movie Review was started in April of 2013 as an outlet for me to share my movie musings with family and friends, and the site is slowing evolving into a nice little retreat for film fans all around the world to enjoy. That said, rather than cross the 500th post mile-marker with another trailer, poster, or random snippet of movies news, I wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate Halloween and give away some great movies. So, in honor of Midroad Movie Review’s 500th post, here’s a fun Halloween Home Video Giveaway just for you! I’m giving away two bundles of seven movies (14 in total; a $75 value), and all you have to do to enter is send me an e-mail with your name and mailing address.

Click on the above image to enlarge it and get a feel for the entry details and the films you could win. Have questions or comments? Don’t hesitate to shoot me a message (using the e-mail address listed above or the “Contact” section of the site).


Slither - Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn’s first feature film is an alien invasion must-see.

Mark Wahlberg’s money troubles surface in The Gambler teaser

Most of the news surrounding Mark Wahlberg’s upcoming movie The Gambler has focused on his weight loss for the role, and now that a red band teaser trailer has surfaced we can see what all the fuss is about. The film looks like a pretty straightforward owe money to the wrong people kind of flick, but the short preview shows us a shaggy and slimmed down Wahlberg mincing words with a menacing-looking John Goodman. There’s nothing on display to necessarily make one jump to buy tickets when the movie hits theaters, but there’s enough here to pique curiosities.

Give the red band teaser (NSFW due to language) for The Gambler a watch after the jump.

Brad Pitt plays irritated on the newest Between Two Ferns

The newest episode of Funny or Die’s silly sketch Between Two Ferns with Zack Galifianakis sees Brad Pitt playing the irritated guest really well, but you can see he’s stifling a smile at times. Whether it’s swapping the same piece of gum, discussing the not-so-bassoon-looking gift, being snubbed by a guest stand-up comedian, or beating around the Friends bush, the video is full of funny little uncomfortable moments. Again, Pitt takes most of Galifianakis’ jabs like a champ, and you can tell he’s having a good time under the surface, but it’s still fun to see these two guys being so awkward around each other.

Watch the new Between Two Ferns with Brad Pitt after the jump.
