Bonus View Digest - October 7, 2011

Posted Fri Oct 7, 2011 at 10:30 AM PDT by

October is upon us people. The leaves are changing, the weather is getting cooler. We tend to stay inside more. Soaking up more movies and television than we did during the summer. So, while you begin to settle in for a nice fall and winter hibernation in front of your high-def TV let The Bonus View be your guide. We'll let you know what to watch on TV, in the theater (if you're brave enough to venture out), and on home video.

Theatrical News

It's that time of year where we start seeing Oscar contenders hitting the theaters. Check out Luke's review of the George Clooney directed political thriller 'The Ides of March .' Luke gave it five stars. Also check out his review for the less than stellar 'Real Steel ' with Hugh Jackman.

Video Game News

Along with Dick Ward's weekly video game release column Wayne was able to give us his final thoughts on 'Gears of War 3 .' Still on the fence about buying it? Check out what Wayne has to say and see if it sways your opinion.

Into 'World of Warcraft'? If you are, then you should probably check out the article Dick wrote about WoW FanCon.

TV Recaps

This has been another insanely busy week for The Bonus View when it comes to television. We've been covering as many TV shows as humanly possible. Check out premiere recaps for returning shows like 'Hung ,' 'House ,' and 'Modern Family .' We also have recaps for 'Project Runway ,' 'Person of Interest ,' 'Terra Nova ,' 'New Girl ,' 'Castle,' and 'Fringe .'

But wait, that isn't it. Did you hear that 'Arrested Development ' is on its way back? Check out Aaron's post about the big news. The Bluth family is back! Not sure which sitcoms are worth watching? Well, you need to take a look at Aaron's Sitcom Scorecard . He's watching every new sitcom that premieres this fall and he's letting you know what to watch and what to miss.

Special Features

This week we have a contest where we're giving away a 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' Blu-ray! Today is actually the last day to enter. Make sure you do. This week's Mid-Week Poll we asked you what portable electronics you carry around with you. In the Weekend Roundtable we wanted to know what your favorite sports movies were.

It's been another fun week at The Bonus View. Make sure to continue visiting the site, because you never know when our next contest will be.

We wish all our readers a fun and safe weekend! Don't watch anything we wouldn't watch!
