This winter has been considered mild, but that’s about to change as Winter Storm Jonas approaches. The incoming storm is being called “potentially historic,” and many are already making plans to spend their weekend indoors and out of the cold. But, what is there to do when a blizzard has you trapped at home? Watch Netflix, of course!
We’ve rounded up the best movies to watch while avoiding the “crippling snow” and ice that Winter Storm Jonas is bringing with him:
“Bridget Jones’s Diary”
This 2001 movie is getting a sequel called “Bridget Jones’s Baby” this September. Re watch the laughs from the first movie, which stars René e Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.
It seems fitting to spend winter storm Jonas with the Jonas brothers. Catch the whole gang — Nick, Joe and Kevin — alongside Demi Lovato in this 2008 Disney Channel movie. If you can't get enough then continue on with "Camp Rock 2."
“F Is For Family”
You won’t be able to stop watching this hilarious animated comedy from Bill Burr. But be warned, there are only six episodes in this new Netflix original series.
“Fireplace For Your Home: Birchwood Edition”
Some might rather cuddle up by the fireplace and read rather than watch a movie or TV show. But what if you don’t have a fireplace? Netflix has got you covered with this cackling and virtually toasty treat.
“Grease: Live” is hitting Fox on Sunday, Jan. 31, but what about the original musical? Fall in love with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John all over again in this 1978 classic.
“Ice Age: The Meltdown”
Got kids? This is the perfect movie for when they get tired of playing in the snow.
“Making A Murderer”
Everyone’s been talking about it around the water cooler, but you have yet to dive into this Netflix documentary about Steven Avery. Now’s the time to catch up and join the conversation.
“Pride & Prejudice”
Before “Pride & Prejudice & Zombies” hits theaters on Feb. 5, dive into the 2005 “Pride & Prejudice” movie starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen.
“The X-Files” premiered in 1993 and ran for nine seasons. Now, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) are returning to Fox as part of a six-episode miniseries to solve more “strange and unexplained” cases. Whether you haven’t watched it in years, or want to check out the reboot on Sunday, the weekend storm is the perfect time to binge watch some episodes.
