Bonus View Digest - March 2, 2012

Posted Fri Mar 2, 2012 at 11:30 AM PST by

February has come and gone. Although, we ended February with a bang! Thank you to all of those who joined us for the Oscars Live-Blog, it truly was fun to discuss the show with all of you. The contest went smoothly too, as ten readers found themselves new owners of free Blu-rays.

This week we start a new March Madness-themed tournament like we did last year. Remember the Movie Madness Tournament? Well, we're starting a March TV Madness Tournament where we've come up with a field of 64 combatants from television who will do battle with each other to see who the biggest badass of television is. Make sure to join us as we jump head first into the tournament starting next week!

TV Madness Tournament

We've started the tournament with a column asking for suggestions on who you think should be added to the tournament. Please, visit the article and jot down a few television character names and we'll see if we can fit them in.

The Oscars

If you didn't get to catch the Live-Blog last Sunday, then you can always read through the replay. It was great fun. Whenever we get together with our fellow readers in a real-time atmosphere there's never a dull moment. Thanks again!

Aaron and Josh both made their opinions known about the Oscars telecast. Josh's 2012 Oscars Post Mortem column talked about his dislike for quite possibly the whole show from Billy Crystal hosting to the way the whole thing was put together. In Aaron's The Good, The Bad and The Horrid of Oscars 2012 he tries to find a few good things to sprinkle among the otherwise dour experience.

Theatrical News

In The Trailer Park this week E covers a trio of films that show just how badass America really is. Here's where you can check out the new trailer for 'Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.'

Aaron covered new movie posters this week in another edition of Posterizing. He had some bad news though when he didn't end up getting a Mondo poster he desperately wanted.

Luke covers the new theater releases this week with reviews of 'Project X' and 'The Lorax.'

Home Theater News

This week in our Mid-Week Poll we asked you a very important question that seems to come up quite a lot when people are discussing upgrades to their home theater. What is more important quality video or quality audio? Please come join in on the discussion.

Josh unboxed one of his older DVDs, this time it's a Canadian import of 'Amelie.'

TV Recaps

Check out our recaps of 'The Walking Dead,' 'Fringe,' and 'Alcatraz' from this week. Let us know how you think these shows are going and what they can improve upon.

Special Features

Last week's Weekend Roundtable dealt with an Oscar related subject. What is your most hated or love Oscar nominated song? We want to know!

That's it for this week. Remember to stay tuned for the March TV Madness Tournament. We had tons of fun last year with the March Movie Madness Tournament and we're determined to have at least twice as much fun this time around.

Thanks, everyone, for joining the conversation and making The Bonus View such a fun place to visit.
