December is the season finale to what we call the yearly calendar, and what would a season finale be without some surprise departures? While November certainly saw some impressive titles dropping off the instant queue, December's departures look like they could give that lineup a run for their money. So if you have some time in the next couple of weeks, you should consult your Netflix queue to see how long these titles will be around, because when December leaves, so will all of the following titles.

Black Snake Moan

Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci are both known for the more blockbuster efforts of their respective careers, but underneath those surfaces is a body of work that's impressive, if not worthy of just as much discussion. Black Snake Moan is a collective win for the two actors, as they, respectively, play a rough and tumble blues musician and the young victim being nursed back to health after being beaten nearly to death. While the film certainly drew controversy back in its time, and more than likely still does, the brilliant efforts of both Jackson and Ricci's performances is something that cannot be denied.

Young Frankenstein

Mel Brooks would have never gotten Gene Wilder to play the lead in Young Frankenstein were it not for one condition the star made of his director. Per Wilder's wishes, Brooks was not allowed to star in the film alongside him, as he would have a hard time keeping a straight face. So Brooks stuck to the work behind the camera, and this comic masterpiece was brought to living, breathing life. Though, as luck would have it, the entire cast, Wilder included, still had problems keeping their laughter in check, as the ranks of Marty Feldman, Madeline Kahn, Peter Boyle and Teri Garr all did their best to break their co-stars at any possible moment. If you need a good laugh, Dr. Frankenstein will see you now.
