With 2017 almost coming to an end, it's that time of year where movie studios are throwing everything they've got left at audiences, from undemanding Christmas movies, to art-house flicks gunning for Oscars, and yes, those final few blockbusters hoping to put the studio's balance sheet firmly in the black.
Though November and December typically invite studios to drop a lot of their lower-effort fare on audiences, this past month was actually pretty consistent for the most part. Yes, most of the holiday movies weren't exactly great (or even good), but there was little in the way of truly bad cinema, and if you were craving something a little more engaging, there was a ton to choose from.
The big story of the month, of course, is that Justice League finally released after what has felt like forever, with the audience response proving rather surprising in a number of ways. Elsewhere, Netflix continued to double its effort to prove itself as a viable alternate to the cinema, and audiences got treated to one of the best movie sequels of all time, so it wasn't a bad month at all.
As for what December brings? The indie circuit serves up The Disaster Artist, but the month will be mostly dominated by blockbuste fare, such as Jumanji, Ferdinand, The Greatest Showman, Pitch Perfect 3 and, yes, Star Wars: The Last Jedi...
