There's been some debate about whether there's a storm a-coming this weekend; whether we get 3 or 30 inches of snow, it's definitely gonna be chilly. Conveniently coinciding with our need to stay indoors is Netflix's monthly addition of new movies to stream. The website added a bunch of flicks on February 1, and we asked TONY Film editor Joshua Rothkopf to give us his top picks so that you don't waste valuable nesting time sorting through the sludge. Check ’em out below, and click the links for our review and synopsis:

- Day of the Dead
- The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
- A Fistful of Dollars
- The Usual Suspects
- Sunset Boulevard
- Harold and Maude
- Bull Durham
- Flashdance
- Airplane!
- Assault on Precinct 13
- North Dallas Forty

Also: Mark your calendar for February 25, when Blue Is the Warmest Color will become available on Netflix. We know it's a bit of a tease since it's not on now—but it's worth the wait.

If you don't have Netflix (or someone's log-in you can borrow), don't fret; Amazon is streaming the pilot episodes from ten brand-new original shows and asking you to decide which one(s) should become series. Half are for children, but the grown-up selections include Bosch, a detective show starring Lost's Titus Welliver, and football drama The Rebels. Check them out here.
