“The Kindergarten Teacher” (2018) — a Netflix Original

Netflix description: Convinced that one of her young students is a prodigy, teacher Lisa becomes obsessed with nurturing his talent — despite his father’s objections.

Critic score: 89%

Audience score: 80%

This movie is worth watching for Gyllenhaal’s performance alone, as she beautifully captures a character that can be very hard to watch in a sympathetic way.

“Blade” (1998)

Netflix description: Vampire Blade and his mentor battle a vampire rebel who plans to take over the outdated vampire council and resurrect voracious blood god La Magra.

Critic score: 54%

Audience score: 78%

The plot is lame, but the action is quite thrilling, and Wesley Snipes is great. While “Blade” is a bit cheesy, it’s still a classic 90s action movie that’s perfect for your lazy weekend binge session.

“Cruel Intentions” (1999)

Netflix description: Quenching a thirst for dangerous games, a promiscuous teen challenges her stepbrother to deflower their headmaster’s daughter before summer ends.

Critic score: 48%

Audience score: 81%

Like “Blade,” “Cruel Intentions” is, at its heart, a dumb movie — but it’s a 90s classic nonetheless. If you didn’t grow up with this movie, it’s still exciting to see Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon, and Ryan Phillippe very young and trying their hardest to sell their so-bad-it’s-good dialogue.
