Snowed in?? What are you watching?

2 feet and another foot and a half predicted by tomorrow here in Maryland. You in the same situation? What are you watching?

Thank God I got my shipment from Netflix and FilmCaddy on Friday.

Barbershop (might actually buy this one, funny)
Fargo (perfect flick for a snowy day, oh ya)
Sunset Boulevard
Koyaanisqatsi (never seen it, might have to get drunk first)
Amelie
My Big Fat Greek Wedding (both from Valentine's Day with the wife)
Brotherhood of The Wolf
Yojimbo

and just picked up Brazil Criterion Collection on Friday.

Not much snow today but lots of freezing rain and sleet...enough to use it as an excuse to stay in and watch Harry Potter with the kids. Last night the wife picked Sweet Home Alabama and Friday night we all watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

It just started snowing about a half hour ago here in north west Nj. We are expecting about 2 feet before it's all done. So we ave a majior snowstorm on the east coast, airports are all closed or closing, and the terror alert is at a high. It just seems like a perfect night to watch Die Hard 2.

You know it is the same thing here in Philly, about 2 and 1/2 feet before it is all over. This extended snow break started great though cause I get to work at home for the next two days, possibility three, and I already had Saturday off so I have a potential of having 4 days at home then my two regular days off Wednesday and Thursday. You would think that working at home isn't too cool but I fix cash registers and stuff for clothing stores and because I can't get out I have to trouble-shoot over the phone. It is actually a pretty decent way to leagally steal money for 8 hours. Back to the topic at hand:

Angel Season 1
Bourne Identity
X-Men 1.5
Near Dark
LOTR
and many more I am sure...

THE CAINE MUTINY, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, & "Mister Roberts". Tomorrow, I'll watch either the Anchor Bay Peter Sellers Collection or SHOAH.

well I am in school. but before I came back to the dorm, it was sleeting where I live.

I watched Chinatown while I did Calculus homework.

While I was driving back to school, I passed by a blockbuster and I swear there were about 50 cars in the little parking lot while sleet was pouring down!

Mmmmmm I dont really have snow movies. I live in Phoenix Az. But when its too hot to open your front door (120) then I go with Empire Strikes Back. Hoth scenes just make me forget the heat.

I'm only half snowed in in Philly. I'm a police dispatcher with 4 wheel drive so if I can get to work, I have to and can't say no in cases like this. I was set to stay over at work (they set us up at a classy nearby hotel in cases like this) but decided to go home .. so I'm waiting till tomorrow to decide if I'm officially snowed in and wasting a vacation day, or not I might have to go in regardless though, cuz if not I'll have to put up with all the cops telling me how much of a baby I am

But on that note, I just watched MIB and MIB2 back to back. Maybe if I'm stuck tomorrow I'll watch The Stand straight through. M-O-O-N! That spells snowed in!
