The Bonus View Digest - June 24, 2011

Posted Fri Jun 24, 2011 at 12:20 PM PDT by

It's hard to believe that the end of June is almost here. Still, even though it took a little while for summer to get here, things have been heating up on The Bonus View for quite a while. We've discussed a bevy of controversial topics this week. Take a look at the links below and see if you find any articles that strike your fancy or tickle your fury bone.

Blu-ray News

First of all we'd like to congratulate our winners of the contest we ran this week on The Bonus view. Congrats go to Bonus View readers Keith and Jim. They each won a free copy of 'The Adjustment Bureau' on Blu-ray. If you didn't get in on this contest, then you see what you've been missing if you haven't visited the blog lately. We routinely run contests for free goodies, so stay up to date with it so you know when the next chance to win comes around.

Josh also let us know what movies we should be looking forward to on Blu-ray with his weekly rundown on which films were hitting store shelves this week.

Theatrical News

We had a big week with numerous reviews being posted by our resident theatrical specialist, Luke Hickman. Luke posted reviews for 'Cars 2', 'Bad Teacher', 'Conan O'Brien Can't Stop' and 'Tree of Life'. Wondering what to see this weekend? Check out which ones Luke recommends. Hint: It isn't 'Cars 2.'

Luke also informed us that Disney has now announced that they will be showing the first four minutes of 'Lion King' in 3D before every 3D showing of 'Cars 2'.

TV Recaps

Some of the summer shows have started and we've got the scoop on them. Want to know how the premiere for 'Falling Skies' was? Check out our recap and see if it's worth your time to watch. See what Josh thought about 'Game of Thrones' thrilling season finale. We also had recaps of 'Cover Affairs' along with a look at 'The Killing's lackluster season finale. Follow all of your favorite shows with us.

Special Features

Josh let us in on a fun little game you can play the next time you see a superhero movie. It's Bingo! with a twist. This time you have to mark off the clichés as they happen. It looks like lots of fun.

Perhaps our most controversial post came in last Friday's Weekend Roundtable where we (heatedly) discussed which TV shows "jumped the shark".

That's it for this week. As for next week we'll be here, posting news and editorials about everything that has to do with movies and high definition. Stay tuned!
