It’s officially December which means that we are wellie deep in winter and it is utterly acceptable to be intensely in the Christmas spirit. There’s no time more perfect to spend the icy nights tucked away in front of the big screen. So grab the popcorn, swing by Starbucks – pick up a large red cup and nestle down in the dark and forget all about the world for one and a half cozy hours.
December is a month that guarantees two types of films hitting our screens – Christmas blockbusters and Oscar contenders. Today’s list is starting with a cracker (pun intended) of a Christmas comedy that is a must-see this month. I mean, what could be better than a Christmas film you haven’t seen for the seventeenth time?
Office Christmas Party
Office Christmas Party stars Jennifer Anniston as the party-shunning CEO, while T.J. Miller and Jason Bateman are the hard-partying employees tasked with rallying their co-workers and hosting an epic office Christmas party to impress a potential client and save their jobs. Expect to (lightly) choke on your popcorn.
Amongst December’s trending films is sci-fi romance Passengers which sees Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt awaken from cryosleep almost a century before schedule, leaving the two astronauts to live out the rest of their existence together. It’s got to be said, it doesn’t really sound too awful. It’s Chris Pratt, Jen.
A must-see for all the ride or die Disney fans. Moana sees the evolution continue of Disney’s passive ’n’ pretty damsel in distress to badass feminist. Far from pining after a price, the animated story follows the Polynesian teenager head out to high sea to save her island from utter destruction – obviously.
La La Land
La La Land is the latest production from Damien Chazelle starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. If the couples’ oozing charm from Love Actually has you hooked too – make a date to catch this flick in December. Heartfelt, and warming – La La Land is a musical (without the cliché), embellished with original melodies and dance numbers.
The Edge of Seventeen
A coming-of-age comedy; The Edge of Seventh is a movie that is sure to have you cringing and laughing into your hands from the very beginning. The must-see movie follows the awkward years of high-school junior Nadine (played by Hailee Steinfeld). It is through an unexpected friendship that the seventeen-year-old finds a glimmer of hope that life just might not be so terrible after all…
