Friday afternoon I received an e-mail from somebody at Buena Vista Home Entertainment asking me if I would like a free DVD copy of Ice Princess. The only stipulation is that I have to watch it, and review it on Amazon.
Last november Buena Vista offered me King Arthur, which I happily accepted. That was pretty cool. Three weeks after that I had another offer, this time for The Village. I turned it down with the explanation that I had already reviewed it on Amazon and that I hoped that I would still have other opportunities to review movies for B.V. That was six months ago and this is the first time I've heard from them since. I think what I should have done is accepted the offer, deleted my old review on Amazon and posted a new review after watching the DVD. I probably missed out on some offers in the past six months.
And so, I'm accepting Ice Princess. If I turn it down, I may not get the chance for another free movie.
