Which Stormy Movies Will You Be Watching — or Avoiding — This Weekend?

So Hurricane Irene is upon us, and between stockpiling supplies and getting one's "go bag" in fighting form, some essential storm prep has fallen through the cracks: What should one watch during a hurricane? (Other than the storm itself once the power goes out, of course.) Is it better to embrace the rain and go for precipitation-friendly films, like Singing in the Rain, or Monsoon Wedding? Stay neutral with just a storm-connected film, like Key Largo? Or let the cabin fever go wild with rain-negative films, like The Perfect Storm or The Day After Tomorrow? Is there an ultimate hurricane movie you'll be watching this weekend? Or a scary storm film you'll be assiduously avoiding?
