Super Size Me - The Movie - Win a free download!

Super Size Me, the movie, is a movie that I have wanted to see for a long time. I have heard very good things about it and says a lot about what I have learned in my journey from being overweight to where I am now.
SUPER SIZE ME is one man’s journey into the world of weight gain, health problems and fast food. It’s an examination of the American way of life and how we are eating ourselves to death. Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock unravels the American obesity epidemic by interviewing experts nationwide and by subjecting himself to a "McDonald’s only" diet for thirty days straight. His Sundance award-winning feature is as entertaining as it is horrifying as it dives into corporate responsibility, nutritional education, school lunch programs and how we as a nation are eating ourselves to death.
I just got some news the other day that this movie was now available for download on iTunes which is very cool because I have not seen it in places that made it easy for me to rent it.

Another very cool thing is that I have been provided with the opportunity to give a way a free download on iTunes to this must see movie, a $10 value.

Tim Wilson -


  1. Love it!

  2. Personally (since you asked), it's nothing you've done. I think you ran the contest about as well as it could be run. However, the mere thought of even indirectly furthering the career of M. Spurlock gives me hives. The sooner we see the last of that guy, the better. He's a pimple on the butt of the body politic, a no-talent hack who wouldn't recognize his own biases if they jumped up and bit him (he's demonstrated this lack of recognition time and again.)

  3. Great idea, Tim! I blogged about it, twittered twice about it, & of course have now commented here. ;-) Here's the link to my post.

    Good luck everyone & thanks, Tim!

  4. Hi Tim. I twittered at 08:30 GB time about the blog and the movie. My Twitter handle is gdwscott

  5. The contest is now closed for new entries. I will be putting the entries together and using to pick a winner.

    Thanks again!

  6. Great trailer, people often are found indulging in unhealthy eating habits. This trend had affected many people across America. Obesity is climbing in the death charts and leading causes to diabetes. I use to be overweight but there is help.
