Note: The answer to yesterday’s contest, Germain’s favorite movie, was Swingers. The winners were Justin G of New York and Alexandra A of Vancouver.

All this week you have a chance to win one of 10 copies of Scott Campbell‘s latest book, The Great Showdowns. It’s a collection of Campbell’s distinctive, awesome art depicting some of the greatest conflicts in movie history. (As seen above.) We at /Film have been writing about Showdowns for years, most recently for Campbell’s second full gallery show. So, to commemorate and give away the new book, we teamed up with Campbell to do something very special.

Each day this week, we’re going to world premiere a brand new, never before seen showdown. Each showdown is based on the favorite movie of one of five /Film writers: David Chen, Russ Fischer, Angie Han and, of course, Peter Sciretta. (We already did mine.) You’ll have one day to look at the showdown, read our explaination why it’s our favorite movie of all time, and then e-mail in your guess. Each day, out of those who get it right, two will randomly be selected and sent a free copy of The Great Showdowns by Scott Campbell.

Sound good? Check out David’s favorite movie of all time below and find out how to enter. Read More »

In 1976 a collection of 55 treasures from the tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun left the Cairo Museum en route to the United States, taking the country by storm and introducing millions of Americans to these wonders of the ancient world.  Now, Egypt has granted another opportunity for us to view such treasures, and again, spectators are mesmerized. Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs DVD is hosted by Omar Sharif and includes interviews with Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Cairo Egypt, as well as may other individuals that were instrumental in organizing this exhibit.
The DVD – hosted by the legendary Omar Sharif – draws you into the exhibit, where viewers will come face to face with Tut’s contemporaries, see and hear about the fascinating times in which the young king lived and learn how his short reign changed history. This DVD gives you an up-close and incredibly detailed look beyond the shimmering gold and beautiful treasures – isolating each piece with multiple camera angles, and beautiful moving images. The DVD also features National Geographic images and film footage about the golden age of the pharaohs as well as information on cutting-edge research into the life and death of Tutankhamun.
