Bonus View Digest - March 1, 2013

Posted Fri Mar 1, 2013 at 01:00 PM PST by

So long February and your miserable excuse for weather. Now we head into March full of wonder. Will Spring perk up from its long hibernation, or will we get freak snowstorm after freak snowstorm? Either way, you'll still have The Bonus View at your disposal.

Blu-ray News

Contest time! Today is your last day to enter to win a free copy of 'Skyfall.' That's right, we're giving away one copy to whoever can come up with the funniest caption for the picture we posted. What do you have to lose? You can enter as many as 10 captions. So get captioning! Today's the deadline.

Our trusty Blu-ray Highlights column has all the information you need to make your purchasing decisions for the week. Not a whole lot of new releases this week, but we do have some promising films like 'The Hudsucker Proxy,' 'The Master,' and 'Holy Motors.'

Monster Madness

We're getting down to the last monsters. These are the baddest of the bad. This week we had a very tight race going on between the Balrog and Gamera. Check it out to see who won the voting.

Grendel vs. Predator – Gamera vs. Balrog

Killer Rabbit vs. Stripe – Cthulhu vs. Vermithrax

Theatrical News

We have quite a few new releases to talk about this week. The crappy movie-going month known as February has finally passed us by. Hopefully, March has better movies in store for us.

Find out what Luke thought about the year's first big-budget adventure movie with his review of 'Jack the Giant Slayer.' Also, Bryan tells us what he thought about the theatrical release of 'Stoker' and whether or not '21 & Over' is worth seeing.

Last Sunday the Oscars happened. 'Argo' took home the top prize, but there were plenty of other surprises along the way. Find out what Josh thought about the show in his Oscars Winners & Losers column. Our Mid-Week Poll was similarly Oscar-related. Did you like Seth MacFarlane as the host? Or did you think he was too crass for the classy affair?

Video Game News

Brian Hoss has been providing ongoing coverage of the newly announced PS4 console. Find out where he thinks Sony's newest venture is lacking in his latest post.

TV Recaps

We're still (reluctantly) following along with 'The Walking Dead.' We also have a recap for 'Community.'

Special Features

The Mid-Week Poll was discussed above. That leaves the Weekend Roundtable from last week where we discussed movies that focus on life-threatening weather.

Thanks for joining us here, for the latest and greatest in theatrical and Blu-ray news. March is a new month and we'll no doubt have a lot of stuff to talk about. Stay tuned.
