Bonus View Digest - April 12, 2013

Have a hankering for some HD-related news, reviews, and other great stuff? See what transpired on The Bonus View in our weekly recap.

Blu-ray News

We're having another contest! We'd ask if you were tired of them, but we know as well as anyone, no one tires of getting free stuff. Last week we gave away a free copy of 'Les Miserables' (check out the results here), this week we're giving away a free copy of 'Wreck-it Ralph.' Trust me, your kids will love it. My son has watched it around 40 times already.

This week was a pretty slow week as far as Blu-ray releases were concerned. Check out our Blu-ray Highlights post to see a few of the gems that made this dismal release week worth it.

Theatrical News

Bryan Kluger has seen the Jackie Robinson biopic opening this weekend entitled '42.' Is it something you've been looking forward to seeing? If so you'll want to read his review to see if it’s a worthy account of his life.

Along with reviewing the newest films in theaters, Bryan has also been attending the Dallas Film Festival. Check out his reviews for festival films like 'A Teacher,' and 'Jump.'

It was with very heavy hearts that we said goodbye to Roger Ebert last week. Aaron took a few moments to write down exactly what the famed critic meant to him. What did he mean to you? Use the comments to tell your favorite Ebert stories.

Finally, E's Trailer Park features a hodgepodge of new movies slated to hit theaters in the near future. Check out trailers for 'Elysium,' 'This is the End,' and the remake of 'Carrie.'

TV Recaps

The summer TV season is heating up and we've got a ton of recaps this week following some of the most anticipated new shows as well as returning favorites. Check out our recaps of 'Game of Thrones,' 'Bates Motel,' 'Hannibal,' 'Community,' 'Dr. Who,' and 'Happy Endings.'

Special Features

Last week on the Weekend Roundtable we discussed what movies would be inappropriate for 3D conversions. It was a fun conversation. Have a few suggestions? Head on over and tell us in the comments.

That's it for this week. Thanks for being our faithful readers. Next week we'll try to pack in even more exciting HD fun!
