Bonus View Digest - May 25, 2012

Posted Fri May 25, 2012 at 10:30 AM PDT by

May is coming to a close and ushering in the heart of the summer movie season. Many of you might be outside enjoying the nice weather, but we here at The Bonus View are huddled over our computers, working to bring you the latest and greatest in all things high-def. Let's see what happened this week.

Josh's Week of Audio

Josh Zyber took a trip to California, and while he was there he took in a few different audio presentations from companies like Dolby and DTS. There are four articles up right now that discuss, in extreme detail, what it was like listening to the demonstrations of audio that a few of these companies are coming out with in the near future.

In Part 1, Josh visits Dolby and learns about 96k upsampling. Part 2 he visits Dolby to find out what Dolby Atmos sounds like. In Part 3 Josh heads on over the DTS and experiences what he calls a "game-changer in home theater audio." In Part 4 he visits the SRS Labs and gets to listen to what they call Multi-Dimensional Audio.

If you're at all interested in the ins and outs of home theater audio then you'll want to read each of these entries to find out exactly what you can expect from these companies in the near future.

TV Madness

This week in the tournament Jack Bauer took on Echo from 'Dollhouse' while Fox Mulder fought Seven of Nine. Check out the results and stay tuned for our Friday matchup, Raylan Givens versus Spartacus.

Blu-ray News

Check out what movies hit Blu-ray this week in our Blu-ray Highlights post. Tom Landy gives us the rundown on the new 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' steelbook that we can expect upon its Blu-ray release.

Theatrical News

This week sees the opening of another hopeful summer blockbuster, 'Men in Black 3.' Luke has seen it. Find out whether or not it was worth rehashing this old idea.

Aaron Peck discusses the latest movie posters that are hitting theaters near you in his latest edition of Posterizing.

TV Recaps

In case you've been missing out, you really should be reading our recaps of 'The Killing.' They're enjoyable, even if you haven't watched the show.

We also have recaps for shows like 'Game of Thrones,' 'Grimm,' and 'Fringe.'

Special Features

In our Weekend Roundtable we asked which board games should be made into movies next since we already have 'Battleship.' In the Mid-Week Poll we asked a very important question, "Do Spoilers Ruin Movies For You?" Let us know.

That's it for this week. We'll be back here next week. Same time. Same place. Until then, be safe and watch good movies.
