In Theaters:

  • Equals – Nia and Silas (Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult) work together in a futuristic society known as “The Collective.” A seemingly utopian world, “The Collective” has ended crime and violence by genetically eliminating all human emotions. Despite this, Nia and Silas can’t help noticing a growing attraction between them, leading them to a forbidden relationship—at first tentative, but then exploding into a passionate romance.

DVD/Blu-ray:

(Titles are available in both formats unless otherwise stated)

  • Belladonna of Sadness – While it was originally produced in 1973, this adult oriented animated feature may not have the most cohesive plot, but it is long on style, unique visuals, philisophical themes. The film does contain some sexually graphic imagery, so fair waring.
  • Everybody Wants Some – Viewed by many as the spiritual successor to Dazed and Confused this film follows a group of college baseball players during their last weekend before their fall term begins.
  • Green Room – The members of a punk band witness a brutal murder by a group of white supremacists. Now they must survive as said group turns on them. This film also has a unique little connection as it features, the late, Anton Yelchin (aka Checkov) as one of the band members and Patrick Stewart(aka Capt. Picard) as the leader of the supremacist gang.
