Bonus View Digest - October 5, 2012

Posted Fri Oct 5, 2012 at 01:00 PM PDT by

Along with all the other great stuff we've got on The Bonus View this weekend, perhaps the most important thing is the fact that today is the last day to put in your entries for our biggest contest yet. Enter to win the 'Bond 50' set on Blu-ray, now!

Blu-ray News

The 'Bond 50' contest is one of the best and most expensive Blu-ray sets we've ever given away on the blog. Today is the deadline to get your entries in so you really should do that now. You never know, you could be knee deep in 'Bond' movies for free.

With his weekly post Blu-ray Highlights, Josh covers everything you'd want to know about the most recent Blu-ray releases. With releases like 'Cinderella' and the 'Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection' this was a pretty big week for notable catalogue releases.

Monster Movie Madness

With the arrival of October we begin to look for movies that will frighten and terrify us. Because Halloween is approaching we'd like to start off a new tournament that is completely centered on the wide variety of blood-sucking, city-crushing, people-munching monsters that have populated movies since the days of Ray Harryhausen. Be sure to join us as we start the tournament next week in an effort to find out which movie monster will be crowned king of the monsters.

Theatrical News

We're finally getting back into the swing of things at the movie theater. The dog-days of the end of summer are behind us and we can look forward to weekends packed with interesting movies again. This week Luke reviewed Tim Burton's 'Frankenweenie' while Aaron saw and reviewed 'Taken 2.' Which movie should you see this week? I'll give you a hint, it doesn't star Liam Neeson.

The new 'Skyfall' theme song was released this week and it's performed by Adele. See what Josh thinks about the newest addition to the long line of 'Bond' movie theme songs.

In the Trailer Park, E shares his thoughts on the new trailer for 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 2' (yikes!) and 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' (double yikes!).

TV Recaps

The new television season has seen quite a few season and series premieres. Josh is hurriedly covering as many new shows as he possibly can. This week you can see if new shows like '666 Park Avenue,' 'Last Resort,' and 'Elementary' are any good. Along with these series premieres check out the season premiere recap of 'Fringe' and Josh's continuing coverage of 'Haven.'

Video Game News

Brian covered this week's this week's video game releases and also posted a hilarious video of Conan O'Brien reviewing the new 'Resident Evil 6.' Brian also took time to piece together an informative history of James Bond-themed video games and how nothing measures up to the greatness that was 'Goldeneye.'

Special Features

Last week on the Weekend Roundtable we talked about our favorite time travel movies and asked you for your opinion on the subject.

Thanks for joining us this week. If you haven't gotten the clue by now, seriously how could we make it any clearer? Today is the last day to enter to win the 'Bond 50' set of all 22 'Bond' movies. So do it now before the deadline passes and you're left with nothing but regrets and thoughts of what could've been.
