Captain America: The First Avenger
A military experiment creates a super soldier (Chris Evans) during World War II, just in time for Cap to battle the evil Red Skull. Never mind that Evans also played the Human Torch in Fantastic Four—just go with it. (Paramount) Netflix

Faces in the Crowd
A woman (Milla Jovovich) escapes badly named serial killer Tearjerk Jack, but can’t identify him to the cops due to some completely plausible condition called “face blindness.” Hey, it also afflicted the casting agent for Captain America. (Millennium) Netflix

A Little Help
A Long Island dental hygienist (Jenna Fischer) drinks all day to cope with her asshole family and unfaithful husband (Chris O’Donnell)—until he suddenly dies, leaving her broke and even more miserable than before. So … comedy! (Freestyle) Netflix

Monday Night Gig
Indie-rockers The French struggle to “make it” while suffering horrible bar gigs, flakey band members, crap vans, poverty and an utter lack of fans or talent … I don’t recall selling the rights to The Störy of Spörk. (MVD)

Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings
Once again, idiot college students go partying in the woods and meet up with—what else?—hillbilly cannibals who live in an abandoned mental hospital. But this one’s a prequel starring some of Canada’s finest thespians, eh. (Fox) Netflix
