    This was a very busy week at The Bonus View. First off the most controversial film of the year, so far, came out and the comments came pouring in fast and furious as people agreed and disagreed with the reviews and commentary we posted. 'Prometheus' caused quite a stir and the controversy hasn't subsided yet.

  • Guy Ritchie: From Worst to First

    Posted Tue Jun 12, 2012 at 01:05 PM PDT by

    This week's big release is 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows'. Since we've already done a Top 5 / Bottom 5 article for Robert Downey, Jr. I thought this would be a good time to find out how I'd rank Guy Ritchie's feature-length films (seven total).

    Denzel Washington's latest movie 'Safe House' hits store shelves this week and I got to thinking that until now we haven't taken the time to do a Top 5/Bottom 5 article for the accomplished actor. So I thought it was about time.

    What? You've been missing out on The Bonus View this week? If you have that means you've been missing our Hitchcock Blogathon that we started in hopes of raising some money for a new musical score and online streaming distribution for 'The White Shadow', an early silent film that young Mr. Hitchcock (then officially a writer and Assistant Director) used as a stepping stone to launch his own directorial career (you can donate here).

  • Top 5 / Bottom 5: Richard Linklater

    Posted Fri Apr 27, 2012 at 11:05 AM PDT by

    With 'Bernie' opening, we thought it would be a good time to take a look back at Richard Linklater's illustrious career to chronicle his best and worst films.

    Personally, I found it hard fitting his movies into best and worst categories, because many of the movies in the worst section are still fairly well done.

    This week the Blu-ray Highlights post turned into quite the discussion forum. The subject at hand was Brad Bird's decision to keep the Blu-ray aspect ratio consistent throughout the movie, instead of using switching aspect ratios for the included IMAX footage. What do you think? Come on over and voice your opinion on that post or on the Mid-Week Poll where we asked you to vote on what you thought about this decision.

  • Top 5 / Bottom 5: Kevin Costner

    Posted Thu Mar 29, 2012 at 12:35 PM PDT by

    Kevin Costner is about as divisive a Hollywood figure as Nicolas Cage. He's renowned for picking terrible roles in misguided, epic failures, but he's also starred in some much-loved films. Costner's filmography spans the insanely bad and the amazingly great. Here's something interesting, among Costner's starring roles on IMDb, the scores run the gamut, from 98 percent down to a dismal 7 percent. The guy has range!

  • Ranking the Muppet Movies

    Posted Wed Mar 21, 2012 at 12:20 PM PDT by

    While my fondest Muppet memories come from the 120 glorious episodes of 'The Muppet Show,' their big screen movies have provided more than enough laughs over the years as well. Until now, I've never sat back and thought about where I would rank the individual Muppet films, but with 'The Muppets' coming out on Blu-ray this week, I thought I'd do that very thing.
