Posted Fri Mar 15, 2013 at 01:30 PM PDT by

We're at the halfway point in March and the weather is starting to clear up. The sun is out. Leaves are threatening to bloom any day now. We won't discourage you from going outside and enjoying. Though, when you come back we'll be right here, waiting to give you great HD content on The Bonus View.

Contest Time

We're going crazy with Blu-ray contests this month. Today is the last day to enter to win a free copy of 'Hitchcock' on Blu-ray. While you're entering be sure to check out the results from our contest for a free copy of the remastered 'Terminator' Blu-ray.

Monster Madness

The end is nigh! Only one monster will emerge victorious from this bloodbath of a tournament. Only four monsters remain. Who will be crowned the victor? Visit our Monster Madness posts from this past week to catch up.

Blu-ray News

March has been a busy month in terms of big time Blu-ray releases. This week wasn't any different. We had huge day-and-date releases like 'Life of Pi,' 'Rise of the Guardians,' and 'Hitchcock.' We also had some pretty big catalog titles hit the format like 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit,' and 'The Blob' just to name a couple. Check out Blu-ray Highlights for a full list.

Also, if you're big into collector's packaging then you'll definitely want to see the wide variety of Steelbook cases available for 'The Hobbit.'

Theatrical News

Not too many movies opening up this week because 'The Great and Powerful Oz' is still steam-rolling the competition. Although, if you're wondering how 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' is, read Luke's review of it.

Home Theater News

Are pixels as we know them going to be dead in the near future? Check out what Brian Hoss has to say on the subject in his new article, "The Death of Pixels?"

Special Features

This week's Mid-Week Poll was about The Muppets, specifically Kermit's song about rainbows. It isn't our normal type of poll, but it was fun. Take a moment and see what you think. In the Weekend Roundtable last week we discussed movies and filmmakers that have exploited our sacred childhoods. Have some venting to do? Let us know in the comments.

That's it for this week at The Bonus View. As always, dear reader, have a safe weekend full of good movies and high resolution.
