Let’s say you’re a guy between 16 and 25 and you and your friends want to watch a movie On Demand this weekend. It’s probably going to happen. But there are way too many choices for your brain to handle after 9 PM. So here’s a time-saver. Go to Movies > All New Movies and purchase ‘Hot Tub Time Machine.’ Thank me later. The movie was number one among last week’s top 10 movies On Demand. Though not a critical favorite, the comedy starring Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, Clark Duke and John Cusack serves up the kind of crude humor you’d expect. But hey, if you’re in the mood – as many appear to be – it’s a fun way to spent 100 minutes.

For more family-leaning fare, try last week’s runner-up, ‘Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightening Thief.’ But you can’t go wrong with ‘Shutter Island,’ ‘The Book of Eli,’ ‘The Twilight Saga,‘ or any of the other films on this strong list. (Click on the titles below to watch trailers and create a watch list.) If you’re in the mood for more independent films, browse the Indie Movie Club, where you’ll find a schedule and trailers of some off-the-mainstream features playing On Demand and online.

Enjoy the weekend – and the movies.
