Recommended Snowpocalypse Viewing

There are two viewing philosphies for winter: either it sets an ideal stage for viewing cold-related movies, or it should be combatted with warmth-related movies. Here's a short list of films for both philosophies. Feel free to post your suggestions in the comments.

Batman and Robin
Goodfellas (for the freezer scene)
March of the Penguins
The Ice Storm
Mystic, Alaska
Happy Feet
Television: Northern Exposure

Do the Right Thing
Barton Fink
Whispers of the Heart (you could also include Our Neighbor Totoro and Porco Rosso - Miazaki clearly has a thing for summer.)
The first act of Sleepers
12 Angry Men
O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Cool Hand Luke
Television: Burn Notice
Miami Vice, Hawaii 5-Oh, &c.
There's also an episode in the first season of Dream On where Martin starts sleeping with his Super after she fixes the air conditioning in his apartment, but I may be out-obscure-referencing even myself here.
