A richly textured and visually stunning film, follows Buck Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life 'horse whisperer,' he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment.

Fabric of the Cosmos
Based on the book by physicist and author Brian Greene, takes us to the frontiers of physics to see how scientists are piecing together the most complete picture yet of space, time and the universe. With each step, audiences will discover that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we'd hardly recognize, a startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone expected.

Fast Five

The Heart Specialist

With help from his girlfriend, 'Dr. Z' sets out to mold Ray into a caring, responsible doctor. Along the way, he shares some important truths and a whole lot of humor in this sexy romantic comedy.

Houdini
Wrapped in chains and encased in a crate, magician Harry Houdini was dropped into New York's icy East River. Horrified onlookers watched him emerge, unharmed, less than 60 second later. Easily the world's most famous escape artist, Houdini mesmerized audiences with astonishing acts of magic like the Water Torture Cell. A circus performer turned gifted artist, Houdini confronted humanity's greatest fears: entrapment, pain, and death.

Jacques Pepin - The essential Pepin
A new HD cooking series with Jacques Pepin, featuring whole episodes based on subjects such as poultry, shellfish, soup, fruit desserts and easy recipes that are practical for the home chef.

Kissinger
With Nixon embroiled in Watergate, Henry Kissinger was, for a time, the most powerful figure in the world. Even after leaving office he continued to act as counselor to successive presidents as well as governments around the globe. For many though, he is implicated in war crimes allegedly committed with his knowledge in countries from Cambodia to Chile. National Geographic peels away the mystique around the man who remains one of the most controversial figures in global politics.

Living Will
Will's best friend and roommate Belcher, a party bum slacker, returns from the dead as a cocky, mischievous, and perverted ghost. He soon discovers his cousin, Krista, has shacked up and moved in with his best friend, Will. Belcher will do anything and everything to destroy this relationship and get his prank buddy back.

Prohibition
Explores the extraordinary story of what happens when a freedom-loving nation outlaws the sale of intoxicating liquor, and the disastrous unintended consequences that follow. The utterly relevant cautionary tale raises profound questions about the proper role of government and the limits of legislating morality. When the country goes dry in 1920, after a century of debate, millions of law-abiding Americans become lawbreakers overnight.

Scream 4
The newest installment in the acclaimed franchise that ushered in a new wave of horror in the 1990s. In Scream 4, Sidney Prescott, now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey and Gale, who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill. Unfortunately, Sidney's appearance also brings about the return of Ghost Face, putting her friends and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.

Submarine
Young Oliver Tate's coming of age is coming even sooner than expected. Prone to daydreaming, listening to French crooners, and indulging other self-absorbed fantasies, Oliver suddenly finds himself submerged in real-life, dual challenges, plotting to lose his virginity with a quirky new girlfriend while also struggling to reconcile his parents' marriage, even though his mom seems smitten with the self-help guru next door.

Tom & Jerry - Fur Flying Adventures Vol 3
Take one blue and white domestic cat. Add one small brown house mouse. Mix in a handful of chases, stir in a few falling anvils and top off with one brutish bulldog named Spike. Yields 14 delightful cartoons! This fast and funny collection rises to the occasion with a crazy camping trip (Sasquashed), a chase through a carnival's haunted house (Spook House Mouse), an Alaskan adventure (Northern Light Fish Fight), an encounter with an abominable snow rodent (Snow Mouse), and more.

White Wash
Although surfing originated in Hawaii as part of Polynesian culture, Americans adopted a blonde-haired, blue-eyed male surfer cliche that still dominates today. The role of black surfers is explored by introducing audiences to the likes of Michael Green, Rick Blocker, Sal Maselka, and Dr. Charles Ross. These guests recount their personal journey, while discussing surf history, its origin and revolution, all the while preserving the love of catching that giant wave. Narrated by Ben Harper.
