Flicks to stream when the weather outside is frightful...

Blessings for these dropping temperatures that are making it totally acceptable to lounge around indoors with a queue full of movies (opens in new tab) on the agenda, and nothing else. New selections this month include the new Netflix biopic about young Obama attending Columbia in the early '80s, Barry (whose leading actor Devon Terrell really nails the resemblance, no?). Classics like National Lampoon's Animal House—one of our top movie picks— (opens in new tab)also join the movie library next month, though if you're more of a TV fiend, there's always Season 1 of Homeland to binge-watch (and cry with (opens in new tab)) on your days off or the second season of Netflix's Fuller House (why not make it a family affair?).

P.S. Don't forget to schedule a viewing of American Beauty (a truly must-see movie (opens in new tab)) and Top Gun before they blow out of your feed like a beautiful plastic bag (opens in new tab) next month.
