Bonus View Digest - September 14, 2012

Posted Fri Sep 14, 2012 at 11:20 AM PDT by

Can somebody explain to us how September is already half over?! As we bid farewell to summer and usher in the nippy winds of fall, The Bonus View has more than enough HD-related content to keep you happy and warm at home. There's no need to go outside. It's just going to get colder. Stay inside and bask in our 1080p glow!

Blu-ray News

Josh covers this week's new Blu-ray releases in his weekly Blu-ray Highlights post. Wondering if big releases like 'Snow White and the Huntsman' or James Cameron's 'Titanic' are worth your money? Rea Josh's thoughts and check out our reviews!

Last week's Weekend Roundtable was specifically related to Blu-ray. Now that we've got a lot of the most wanted catalogue titles on Blu-ray ('Indiana Jones,' 'Star Wars,' and 'Citizen Kane' just to name a few) we wanted to know what titles are left that you would consider "Holy Grail" titles. Catalogue titles that haven't yet been released on the format, but you are desperately hoping will get released soon.

Theatrical News

David Cronenberg has a new movie out called 'Cosmopolis.' Aaron reviewed it and still doesn't know what to make of it. However, it's an interesting exercise in abstract filmmaking. Take a look at his review and see if it's a movie that you may be interested in.

In the Trailer Park E covered new trailers for 'The Iceman' starring Michael Shannon and Ray Liotta and 'The Impossible' starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor.

Video Game News

Want to know the latest news on Nintendo's new Wii U? Check out Brian's post about its pricing and launch details.

TV Recaps

Have you wondered what the A&E mini-series 'Coma' is like? If you're anything like me and you've seen it's cryptic, at times, downright weird commercials then you're probably wondering what it's all about. Josh watched it and has a recap for it just for you.

We also have a recap of the most recent episode of 'The Newsroom' along with a look at the new pilot for NBC's 'Revolution.'

Special Features

We already talked about the Weekend Roundtable so we'll jump straight to the Mid-Week Poll. This week we wanted to know if you'd pay to stream movies early. Like before the movie hits Blu-ray. What do you think? Good idea or bad?

Thanks for joining us this week. We'll see you again on Monday!
