Netflix: movies and shows for December 2017

entertainment | Nov 30, 2017 | By Martin Barillas

Netflix is offering plenty of movies and shows in December that are certain to delight any number of audiences. The service continues to make offerings of its own programming that are making it a rival of traditional movie producers. Here follow some highlights of movies and shows available in December:


Wormwood (available 12/15)

Errol Morris, who produced the groundbreaking documentary The Thin Blue Line, is now offering a fact-filled fictional account about the CIA and its attempts at mind-control. It is focused on the agency's historical and troubling MK Ultra project, during which the government slipped LSD to unwitting Americans.  

Bright (available 12/22)

Will Smith plays a police officer doing his job in a world with elves and fairies and other creatures who are mistreated by law enforcement. Sounds like a heavy-handed metaphorical treatment of current political discussion over relations between police and the communities they serve and protect, doesn't it?

Planet Earth II (available 12/25)

This sequel has been 10 years in the making and in high-definition! Lots of footage of snakes chasing baby lizards!

Dave Chappelle: Equanimity (available 12/31)

Dave Chappelle has been castigated for saying during the 2016 presidential race that Donald Trump should get fair treatment by voters and the media. On New Year's Eve, he will deliver his third comedy special.
