It's almost the end of the year – and the end of several movies' time on the Big Red Streaming Monolith, as Netflix recently announced its departures for December. 

Unfortunately, the streaming service must be in a grinchy mood this holiday season as the list of movies and TV shows leaving next month is loaded with notable names. Fans of the "Sing" movies will have a blue Christmas when the star-studded sequel bails from the Big Red Streaming Monolith in the middle of December, with "Kung Fu Panda" following suit at the end of the month. And speaking of the holidays, those in love with the Christmas classic "Love Actually" will need watch its grand romantic gestures before it's actually gone. Sound horrifying? Well, if you want real horror, you'll want to watch "Jaws" and "Us" sooner than later before Netflix kills them off, along with the action favorites "Mission Impossible" films and the "Crank" movies. 

It's Oscar season – and while Netflix is loading up on new awards season hopefuls, past recipients like "American Beauty," "Gladiator," "Saving Private Ryan," "Lost in Translation" and more will make like "La La Land" winning Best Picture and awkwardly shuffle off the Netflix stage. And while everyone loves Taylor Swift right now, Netflix is going in the opposite direction, shaking off her "Reputation" concert film ... which awkwardly was a Netflix original and will soon be unable to watch anywhere else. For the hundredth time: Don't trust anything to stay on a streaming service forever – even their own once-beloved bell cow shows and movies.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
