We have a winner. The DVD looks better than most, but if they could give us a BD that looks better that'd be fine.

I'll guess Homefront (2013) - mainly because that's the last movie I've seen Winona Ryder in.

That was the actual challenge: I didn't recognize her when I was watching it.

So-so Statham vehicle. At the realistic as opposed to the fantasy end of the spectrum. Still at Redbox.

Winona is still a good looking woman but made up to look a little gnarly in this movie. When Franco bent her over the car hood to get busy with her I thought well there's something you don't usually see her do.

That one was most memorable to me because I stopped watching about 1/2 way through and wondered why I started in the first place.

Correct. A compelling and quite disturbing portrayal of self loathing and masochism by Huppert.

I saw it when it came out. After seeing Goodfellas, JFK, My cousin Vinny, etc I was a huge fan of Pesci, so when this came out, seeing it was a no-brainer. He was the main reason to see this film, IMO.
