Bonus View Digest - February 17, 2012

Posted Fri Feb 17, 2012 at 11:00 AM PST by

We here at High-Def Digest and The Bonus View hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day this week, and if you didn't have a special person to share it with, we hope you spent your time watching as many awesome action movies as possible.

Even though love was in the air this week The Bonus View didn't slow down when it came to covering just about everything you'd like to know about the world of theatrical releases, Blu-rays, and yes, even video games. Did you miss out on a few articles this week? Well here's your chance to look back through what was posted and find those tidbits you may have passed over.

Blu-ray News

This week Josh covered the weekly Blu-ray releases with his Blu-ray Highlights post, while Tom let us in on the info about the new 'War of Arrows' collector's steelbook case in his Full Metal Jackets column.

If you're looking to revisit a title that's been sitting on your shelf for a while, check out Off the Shelf where Aaron took another look at 'Deep Blue Sea' and remembered just how silly it is.

Theatrical News

Luke covered two of the three big releases for this week. 'Ghost Rider 2' wasn't screened for critics, I wonder why. However, you can catch up with Luke's reviews of the new rom-com 'This Means War,' and the new Hiromasa Yonebayashi film 'The Secret World of Arrietty,' which just so happens to be written by the famous Hayao Miyazaki.

Along with movie reviews, Luke also took a look at the state of movies and Hollywood in his article entitled Diagnosing and Treating Hollywood’s Disease. Check it out. It's a great read.

TV Recaps

It was a big week in television, mainly because the popular AMC zombie show, 'The Walking Dead' finally ended its hiatus and started up with all-new episodes. Aaron recapped the returning episode. Find out if you agree with the lethargic feeling Aaron has about the series.

Along with the new episode of 'The Walking Dead' Aaron also continued with his Character Guide column which spells out the characters who are left on the show and their chances of surviving.

We also covered a variety of other shows including, 'The River,' 'Grimm,' 'Fringe,' and 'Alcatraz.'

Special Features

Josh discussed a very sensitive issue this week. Apparently George Lucas is now saying that Han never shot first in the first place. Yet another insult to his already beleaguered fanbase.

The Weekend Roundtable involved us talking about the worst titles ever given to movies. What are some of yours? Let us know.

This week in the Mid-Week Poll we asked you who will win the Best Director at the Oscars and who you think should win.

That's it for this week. Continue to tune into The Bonus View for insight, intrigue and a healthy stream of contests. Have a great weekend everyone.
