Technical problems aside, the weeks are just flying by. We're getting closer to the fall movie season where we start seeing Oscar contenders getting released in theaters. In order to keep up with everything going on in the biz, turn to The Bonus View where we're always covering the latest and greatest in news, reviews, and more.

Theatrical News

It was a genre fight at the box office this past week. Luke Hickman tracked the box office and let us know how well movies like 'The Help', '30 Minutes or Less', and 'Glee 3D Concert' stacked up against 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'.

Josh discussed a new happening in Hollywood. Has the 3D backlash become so large that studios now have to disclose that people can also see the movie in 2D if they want?

Home Theater News

Josh has got a good handle on his 3D TV and the way he's set up his new home theater, but he's wondering where that all-important 3D "pop-out" is. Join in on the discussion and see if we can figure out what's going on together.

Video Game News

Wayne discusses the relatively new idea of preorder bonuses and how some game studios are withholding exclusive content if people go out and buy a used game. Is it fair? Let us know what you think.

TV Recaps

Before we rundown the list of episode recaps we have for you this week, take a look at this news post. Frank Darabont has been fired from AMC's 'The Walking Dead'. Is this good or bad news for the show?

As for episode recaps, we have all your favorite summer shows lined up: 'True Blood' , 'Burn Notice', 'Curb Your Enthusiasm', 'Haven' , 'Project Runway', 'Covert Affairs', and 'Alphas'.

Special Features

Finally, we have this week's Weekend Roundtable where we discussed which actors should just give up, well, acting. The Mid-Week Poll asked a question about kids and at what age do they become cognizant about movies.

Thanks for joining us for another week of fun and frivolity here on The Bonus View. We strive to have a little something for everyone, no matter what your tastes are.
