Monster Madness

The tournament rages on as monster after monster is eliminated. It'll take a while to get to the end of the competition and crown a winner, but every vote counts. Be sure to make your voice heard on the most recent matchups.

Mist Walker vs. Giant Croc – Killer Birds vs. Ghoulies

Blu-ray News

This week in the Blu-ray Highlights post we cover everything from 'Men in Black 3' to 'ParaNorman.' Don't miss any crucial Blu-ray releases by checking out Josh's weekly column that tells you exactly what's hitting store shelves.

We also had a contest last week where a lucky person won a copy of 'Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure' on Blu-ray. Check out our contest results to see who took home the prize.

Theatrical News

Over the holiday weekend we reviewed quite a few films. Find out exactly what Luke thought of 'Life of Pi,' 'Rise of the Guardians' and the newest 'Twilight' travesty. This week Luke reviewed 'Anna Karenina' and 'Silver Linings Playbook,' while Aaron tired his hardest to find out what 'Killing Them Softly' was all about.

Brian Hoss wrote a great piece about visiting the Alamo Drafthouse's 'Super Cutz: The 100 Best Kills.' Read his article about his experience. Those who live near a Drafthouse theater are lucky, that's all I can say.

Also, be sure to check out Josh's article on the death of 35mm film and what he thinks of its demise as digital projection takes over everywhere. Here he focuses on what it means for smaller arthouse cinemas that may not be able to upgrade to digital.

TV Recaps

This week we recapped 'The Walking Dead,' and 'American Horror Story.' We also had the displeasure of reporting the death of another beloved TV star as Larry Hagman of 'Dallas' fame passed on.

Special Features

In the Mid-Week Poll we asked you readers how you like to watch your movies portable. What's the best way you've found to do it? In the most recent Weekend Roundtable we found ourselves discussing cinema's most underrated movies. We know you have opinions on the subject so please let us know what they are.

Thanks for sticking with us through the holiday weekend. We hope your Thanksgiving was heavy with gravy-slathered turkey and light on family disagreements. As always continue to read The Bonus View for all your high-def needs. Have a great weekend!
