COLORADO, USA — A Colorado snow day inside with a roaring fire, a bowl of popcorn, delivery Chinese food, a crisp Coke Zero Sugar and a movie: what could be better?
Here's a list of movies that are literally perfect for a snow day in Colorado:
Why it's perfect: Black and white movie with snow, snow globes and a sled.
The Sound of Music
Why it's perfect: WWII-set movie with snow-covered mountain peaks and thoughts of snowflakes that stay on your nose and eyelashes.
Why it's perfect: Freezing cold and snow throughout. It's a frigid-looking movie.

The Hateful Eight
Why it's perfect: Completely frozen throughout, lots of snow with cold hearts as well.
Why it's perfect: A movie about a mother and her son trapped in a room in winter may sound depressing, but it's actually pretty heartfelt and awe-inspiring.

Why it's perfect: A must-watch every February 2 is also great anytime it snows.

Why it's perfect: The best-movie-ever-made is set in December 1941 and - with gambling, drinking, romance and at least five iconic movie lines - is perfect anytime of the year.
