Posted Fri Aug 26, 2011 at 11:00 AM PDT by

This week we debuted a new feature or two. We covered everything from the latest television news to what you should see at the movies this weekend. In short, just another day at the office for The Bonus View. You're one-stop blog for everything relating to high-def entertainment.

Blu-ray News

Along with Josh's extensive weekly release list of Blu-ray titles hitting retail stores everywhere, we debuted a new feature called Off the Shelf. Aaron Peck thought that revisiting his Blu-ray collection would be fun. So, come along as we bust out movies that have been sitting on our shelves for months or years. This week Aaron remembers how funny 'Easy A' was and how great Emma Stone is in it.

Theatrical News

Along with his Weekend Box Office and Weekend Movies update Luke Hickman reviewed the surprisingly good vampire movie 'Fright Night' that may have snuck into theaters under everyone's radar. E also provided another wonderful Trailer Park post, where he discussed the trailers for 'Red Tails,' 'Tower Heist,' 'Battleship,' and 'The Ides of March.'

Home Theater News

Wondering what you can watch in the comfort of your own home? Well, we have your streaming covered. Dick Ward covers what's new on the Netflix Stream while Josh lets you know exactly what you can watch on the Vudu Network.

If you're looking for an old movie you might have forgotten about, check out One from the Vault as Wayne Rowe takes a look back at the 80s sci-fi horror comedy 'Night of the Comet.'

Video Game News

Wayne wrote up a couple great pieces this week. Want to know what to expect with PS3's new 'Dead Island?' How about the news that the Red Hot Chili Pepper songs are now downloadable on 'Rock Band'? Oh, you just wanted to know what video games you should look forward to this week? Well, we've got you covered there too.

TV Recaps

This week we have recaps for all the popular summer shows. Join the conversations on 'True Blood,' 'Burn Notice,' 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' 'Wilfred,' 'Project Runway,' 'Haven,' and 'Alphas.'

Special Features

This week on the Weekend Roundtable the collective writers at The Bonus View discussed which actors in Hollywood were their favorite character actors. Continuing on with that idea – and the love that was shown to Gary Oldman during the best character actor discussion – our Mid-Week Poll asked you what was your favorite Gary Oldman performance.
