It's been too cold to go outside and play lately, but it's the perfect weather to grab a blanket, some popcorn and watch a few movies from Redbox.

Have you ever thought that despite change being a daily occurrence most of us resist it?
Have you ever thought about what you might remember years from now about the Christmas we have just celebrated? I hope it will be something that makes you feel good as you recall the Christmas of 2014. Every year we spend hours looking for the perfect gift for friends and family.

Like summer is a time for action blockbusters, winter is for prestige films-the films that will make you think, probably cry and win a ton of awards. This is also the time for film studios to push out their prestige films before the Dec. 31 deadline for awards like the Oscars and the Golden Globes.

If AMC's horror-thons aren't enough to get those "I'm to scared to get up and see if that's a coat hanging in my closet or the guy with the hook in 'I Know What You Did Last Summer'" juices flowing then there are plenty of movies on Netflix that will.

So, instead of listing those movies here are some you should avoid.
