A Giveaway!!!!!

I am all excited as I was contacted last week and asked if I would like to review "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," movie staring Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Tom Wilkinson as well as many other actors. 

"British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than its advertisements, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways."

Then to add to all of that, I was sent a gift basket as a thank you.  The gift basket has a package of Marigold seeds, which I'll plant next year.  A box of PG Tips tea, a package of Hobnobs (I LOVE THESE), a jar of Marmite, a jar of Branston Pickle and a container of Curry Powder.

They also sent me not only the DVD of the movie, but the Blu-ray disc.  We do not have a Blu-ray player, so I was given permission to give the Blu-ray disc away.

Now there is nothing exciting to do other than leave a comment saying you would like to win this.  Of course you must have a Blu-ray player, as otherwise you can't watch it.  Also does anyone know if you can play a Blu-ray disc anywhere in the world?  If you can, then it's open to anyone in the world.  If you can't well it's only open to folk who live in Canada or the US.

I'll draw a name on Sunday 23rd of September.

Good luck!

P.S. I haven't watched the movie yet, hoping to watch it later in the week, really looking forward to watching it.

Would love to win this movie. I heard that it was very funny. We are a vegemite house, don't like Marmite but we are on our last jar boohoooo and don't know where to get anymore.
If you find anywhere that has vegemite I'd love a heads up.

Glad that you got your garage cleaned out that is still on our to do list.

I love Judi Dench and would like this movie, I am sure. Thanks Gill! Our local Bulk Barn carries a nice selection of British sweets. I am not sure if that is true of them all.

What a wonderful gift basket full of yummy goodies!

I love Judi Dench movies, and would love to win this movie! It's on my list of movies to watch.

Both my DH and I love British and Scottish treats, and hit up a speciality store in a major city to stock up.

I should also like to see this film and haven't yet. As it happens i *DO* have a blu-ray player, thanks to Himself. To date, i've only watched DVDs on it.

As others have said, i'm glad to see you back in BlogLand.

And, quite a nice gift basket there as well--thanks for thinking of us in offering the blu-ray copy.

I would love to enter to win...I usually like anything Judi Dench is in.

Shirley said...

Your basket of treats looks yummy. Though I haven't looked into it too carefully as far as I can see unless it says on the box that it is for a specific zone then it should be watchable elsewhere. It's a movie I'd like to see so I'd like to enter as I could watch it at my son's place.
