Saturday it's supposed to be 1 degree! So instead of suffering out in the cold, the best thing to do is stay indoors and binge watch films on your favorite streaming provider.  Here's a list of 3 that might give you some ideas:


The Irishman:  This Martin Scorsese film runs 3 and a half hours but the pacing makes it feel way less than that. The story is how the mob has influenced history, the Unions and even the leadership of the USA. It's told through the eyes of Frank "Irishman " Sheeran a reputed hitman and union official that died shortly after his tell-all book " I heard you paint Houses". The film includes Academy Award winners Robert Deniro, Joe Pesci, and Al Pacino among others in this ensemble cast. I think I've seen it 5 times already!

Amazon prime;

Mississippi Grind: A gambling buddy movie featuring Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn that will have you feeling depressed but not enough to turn it off. That's good because it changes and has a very inspirational message at the end.  Kind of reminds me of Fandango  a movie that Kevin Costner did early in his career. If you liked "The Color of Money", you'll like this film. 

Blackhat; A Michael Mann film that centers around a hacker that is creating terrorism for profits and an ex-con Hacker that's trying to stop him.  Chris Hemsworth plays the central figure in a film that has everything you love about Michael Mann. Set design, story, tons of action and twists and turns. This one is pretty long as well but sooo worth it!

After watching these three you would probably need a drink or at least 10 hours to go on a James Bond marathon.
