Class of 1999 (1990) Blu Ray (Vestron Video/Lionsgate)

Mark L. Lester's magpie-like blend of elements from other hit sci-fi films amounts to a competently enjoyable piece of straight-to-video era trash. It stars Malcolm McDowell (spot the A Clockwork Orange reference), Stacy Keach and Pam Grier.

Rushmore (1998) Blu Ray (The Criterion Collection)

A creative high school student (Jason Schwartzman) and a jaded industrialist (Bill Murray) fall in love with the same English rose of a teacher (Olivia Williams) in Wes Anderson's eccentric and stylish, semi-autobiographical sophomore film.

Heathers (1988) starring Winona Ryder Blu Ray & DVD (Arrow)

Director Michael Lehmann's first and best film is a sharp satire about the neo-fascist reality of high school life and the media-fuelled cult of teen martyrdom. It's stylish, witty and has great performances, notably from its two leads Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.
