Bonus View Digest - January 6, 2012

Posted Fri Jan 6, 2012 at 11:20 AM PST by

This week's Bonus View Digest is being typed in a drug-induced haze. No, I wasn't up all night partying – not those kinds of drugs. Instead I, Aaron Peck, was up all night with my first cold of the New Year. Great way to start it off huh? Well, at least when I was up at 4:00 am in the morning I had nothing else to do but read all the great stuff that even I miss sometimes on our blog.

As I sniffed, coughed, and sneezed through the night – all the while cursing the cold drugs for not working like they promised they would – I was able to catch up on all of this week's great articles that were posted on the blog. Check out what you may have missed.

Theatrical News

E introduced us to a couple new trailers in this week's Trailer Park. 'A Thousand Words' appears to be Eddie Murphy's next cinematic disaster, while the rom-com 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' has E a bit apprehensive of what the final outcome will be.

In the Weekend Movies section Luke dissects the films that are in theaters, but it being January there aren't a lot of great options out there.

Posterizing got the year end treatment. Aaron revealed his top 15 favorite movie posters of 2011.

E continues to update us on his home theater overhaul with Part 2 of his home theater PC build.

Special Features

In a special post this week Luke revealed how film critic awards happen by using the Utah Film Critics Association as an example. The Mid-Week Poll discussed our favorite 2011 blockbusters. Finally, with the Weekend Roundtable we all made our own New Year's wishes.

Thanks for making the first week of the New Year a great one. Be sure to stay tuned though, because on the 15th of January we're planning on doing a Live-Blog for the Golden Globes! You won't want to miss it.
