5 Must See December ‘017 Movies

As I said last December in the ‘016 round-up, nothing good ever happens in December. You know, other than Christmas and many of the biggest box office releases of all time. This year is no different, as we all have been long awaiting the release of the next instalment from the world’s greatest franchise. Jumanji. Just kidding, that movie looks terrible. Despite there being only one movie that most of us care about in December, there are a few others that will be worth checking out. Let’s get into it-


In an attempt to solve many of the worlds growing issues, scientists have introduced a method of shrinking people to a miniature size. Downsizing follows an ordinary man played by Matt Damon that undergoes this transformation. Leaving the door open for many possibilities, this movie looks to be a fun, light-hearted experience. It should, at the least, be an enjoyable watch.


The story of Ferdinand the flower smelling bull is over 70 years old now. This modern adaptation features professional wrestler John Cena as the bull that doesn’t want to fight. The big-hearted story has a legitimate chance to become 20th Century Fox’s highest grossing animated film if it can knock out Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel.


This Netflix Original film begins streaming this month. Taking a buddy cop genre in South Central L.A. and blending in a fantasy world, Bright is a film like we’ve never seen before. I mean, you already have a Netflix subscription, why wouldn’t you give this movie with Will Smith a watch. Big thanks to My Side of the Laundry Room who has been promoting this film for months, he really got me pumped.

Disaster Artist

We have been seeing the strange promotions for this film all year. Reuniting James Franco, Dave Franco, and Seth Rogan, Disaster Artist follows the real story behind the making of The Room, the worst movie ever made. From what had been seen so far, James Franco absolutely kills it. It takes a great actor to portray a believable terrible actor. The list is long for reasons to catch this film.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The wait is almost over. Episode Eight in the Skywalker saga is about to arrive. The return of beloved characters Rey, Finn, and Poe, are shadowed by the arrival of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. Anticipation is high as the Star Wars keeps getting bigger and better under Disney. Also, we will finally receive the answer we have all been asking for months: has Luke been eating porgs?

Thanks filmnerds, can’t wait to talk about all things Star Wars with you.

  5. Yes, Luke HAS been eating porgs. Even though they’re adorable and I can’t imagine this EVERY happening, I’d like the opening scene to be Luke and Rey roasting porgs over a fire, for dinner, as they talk. I’d also like to see Chewie take a few big bites out of them raw. I think the one(s) he has with him on the Falcon is a to-go snack, not a pet.
