Kevin,

Aren't several of these of the Sci-Fi genre? I thought you had a serious dislike for Sci-Fi.

Beggars can't be choosers. It's slim pickins this summer.

The Windmill (2016) :

A bus load of tourists visit the Windmills of Holland. On this happy bus we find a :

* Soldier who kills prostitutes;
* Psychotic cutey with daddy issues;
* Japanese boy who abandoned his grandmother;
* Misogynistic business man and his hemophiliac son;
* Surgeon who operates under the influence;
* Soulless French actress with a temper - hopefully the beautiful Juliette Binoche is not her rival.

They all meet Death, Scepter and all. And you thought you've had bad vacations.

One of the worst horror movies I've ever seen but, sadly, just typical fare from Netflix Canada.

1/10

The Stepfather (2009) :

Dylan Walsh plays David Harris, a serial killer who moves from family to family, slaughtering them when he's outstayed his welcome. The movie is a remake of the 1987 classic (too strong a word) starring Terry O'Quinn. The 1987 version was scarier and more believable - before the internet and shows like America Most Wanted. This version is just a bunch of small jumps, endless close calls, and red herrings.

I haven't seen the original in 30 years but, even if it hasn't aged well, it's still better than this unwanted house guest of a movie.

Only the beautiful Amber Heard makes an impression.

2/10

Equity (2016) :

Naomi Bishop (Anna Gunn) is an Investment Banker who is only as good as her last IPO. Unfortunately, her last IPO went bad and now she's trying to prove she can still do it. Angling to get their share is her scumbag boyfriend, her back stabbing assistant, and her Prosecutor friend, who just happens to be investigating Naomi and her firm.

Equity is a smart, feminist version of Wall Street. However, it's not without its faults...

* Some characters are a little too quirky, like the boss who likes to play Jenga on his desk;
* Blocks of dialogue sound (slightly) plagiarized - Naomi demanding a cookie with more chocolate chips felt a little too much like the blueberry muffin scene from Casino;
* The final 30 minutes aren't as good as the 70 minutes that proceeded it;
* Equity is not in the same league as the far superior Margin Call.

Still, the movie pulled me in and the conclusion felt authentic.

7/10
