The weather sucks outside, to put it mildly. So that gives you every right to simply just not go out there, stay in bed all day, and watch movies On Demand.

Say goodbye to the outside world, or friends, and human existence because after seeing this list of films that are available to rent On Demand right now, Seamless will be your best friend, and your computer will become your love interest.
All of the movies on this list are available to stream On Demand on FiOS' website, but you can always just watch on your TV, as well — it's just a matter of how ambitious you are for getting out of bed (then again, if you have a TV in the bedroom, then you are really set for life, proud of you).

Enjoy FiOS friends, see you when you resurface after watching all of these movies.
Movie Info: I don't know if you guys have heard of this movie, it's super low-key release date got moved because politics (UGH). Obviously we all know what this movie is about, even my non-English speaking, non-TV watching extended family members know what the deal with The Interview is. If you're looking for a classic Rogen Franco film, this movie is for you.
Movie Info: Chances are you've heard of this movie and have just been boycotting the crazy prices of movie theaters, and instead waiting for it On Demand. The film follows Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) who is suspected of murdering his missing wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) on their fifth wedding anniversary. It's a lot more complicated than that, but that is the super Cliffsnotes tagline.
Movie Info: Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf star in this World War Two film which follows an army sergeant as he and his team cross enemy lines.
Guardians of the Galaxy

22 Jump Street

They Came Together
Genre: Romantic comedy (in the purest form)
Movie Info: If you love romantic comedies, but also love making fun of romantic comedies, you'll want to catch They Came Together. It is cheesy, but aware of its cheesiness. Plus, it stars Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd, so win-win, right?
