Bonus View Digest - August 31, 2012

Posted Fri Aug 31, 2012 at 12:40 PM PDT by

August has quickly come and gone. September is soon upon us, which means the start of football season, the start of the fall movie-going season, and of course 'Indiana Jones' on Blu-ray! (which you should probably pre-order right now).

We've had a lot of fun over on The Bonus View this summer. Even though fall is coming fast, the days of September are likely to be as scorching hot as August was. So, why not sit back and relax in your air-conditioned homes and take in as much Bonus View content as you can? We talk about everything here. If it's related to high-def entertainment, or just movies in general, we usually have it covered.

Blu-ray News

We have a new contest going this week and today is your last chance to enter. Last week we gave away a free season of Showtime's 'Homeland' on Blu-ray (congratulations to our winner). This week we lament the loss of one of America's most historic figures, Neil Armstrong. In memory of the first man who walked on the moon we're giving away a free copy of 'In the Shadow of the Moon.' You won't want to miss this contest and it's extremely easy to enter. Come on over and give it a shot. You never know, you may be getting a free Blu-ray in the mail!

If you were wondering what to buy on Blu-ray this week, Josh has you covered there with Blu-ray Highlights. He took a look at everything being released this week and gives you his opinion on movies like 'Battleship,' 'Darling Companion,' and 'The Five Year Engagement.'
