Happy May Team! Ah May you're such a fun packed month. In addition to being confusingly inconsistent with your weather you're filled with exciting springtime holidays. Yes, in addition to Mother's Day and Cinco de Mayo there is no socks day, and my personal favorite Limerick Day. And what better way to ring in national escargot day than to watch a fabulous movie on Demand. Lucky for you I have my On Demand Weekly top 5 Movies on Demand for May right here! 
 
 
 
 

5. ENEMY, Premieres May 20 JAKE GYLLENHAAL PICK OF THE MONTH
Jake Gyllenhaal stars in this thriller as a man who goes on a hunt for his exact look-alike after spotting him in a movie. Two Jake Gyllenhaals? Yes, yes, and yes!
R, Thriller, Jake Gyllenhaal, Mélanie Lauren, Pre-DVD Release

4. THE MONUMENTS MEN, Premieres May 20
A star studded cast, Nazi Thieves, art, the greatest treasure hunt in history, and a screenplay written by George Clooney. All the elements needed for a riveting war drama.
PG-13, Action/Drama, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin

3. THE DOUBLE, Premieres May 9 INDIE PICK OF THE MONTH
Jesse Eisenberg stars in this thriller as a government agent whose life is turned upside down with the arrival of his sexy double. Two Jesse Eisenbergs? Yes! What is happening this month?
R, Comedy/Thriller, Jesse Eisenberg, Sally Hawkins, Mia Wasikowska, Chris O'Dowd, Same Day As Theatrical Release

2. THAT AWKWARD MOMENT, Premieres May 13
A hilarious bro comedy that stars a shirtless Zac Efron. Need I say more?
R, Comedy, Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Imogen Poots, Mackenzie Davis

1. HER, Premieres May 13
This critically acclaimed drama is a master class is screenwriting. It's not just Joaquin Phoenix falling in love with Siri. It's a heavy insight into our reliance on technology and an eerie look into our future as a society. It is probably the best love story of the year. If Spike Jonze can write a more compelling romance between a man and an OS device than most can write with two living, breathing humans then he is doing something very right.
R, Comedy/Drama, Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, Chris Pratt, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde
