Last Christmas

“Kate is a young woman subscribed to bad decisions. Working as an elf in a year round Christmas store is not good for the wannabe singer. However, she meets Tom there. Her life takes a new turn. For Kate, it seems too good to be true.” This is a really good romance and comedy movie, with a really good twist.

This movie is a really good christmas romance movie and I will now be watching it every christmas till forever.

Characters, Cast and Crew

This movie was released on 8th November 2019.

This movie was directed by Paul Feig who also directed Ghostbusters, Bridesmaid, Spy and A Simple Favour. One of the Writers was George Michael who has given many of his songs to this movie. Another writer is also Emma Thompson who played Kate (the main characters) mother.

Kate the main character who is played by Emilia Clarke has had some many main roles of the years. She got her first break in the Tv Show ‘Game of Thrones’ as Daenerys Targaryen. Clarke has also been singing since she was very young.

Henry Golding plays Tom who is the love interest to Kate. Henry Golding first started acting in Crazy Rich Asians in 2018. Golding has only recently became a mainstream actor. He has been married to his wife Liz Lo since 2016

Trivia

Here are a couple of cool facts which I found were interesting:

  • Emilia Clarke did her own singing in this movie.
  • Director Paul Feig was originally not interested in doing another holiday comedy, after his previous entry, Unaccompanied Minors (2006), was a critical and commercial failure. However, after reading the script, personally sent to him by Dame Emma Thompson, he was convinced.
  • Emilia Clarke did her own singing in this movie.
  • Loosely resembles A Christmas Carol as Kate is like Scrooge starts off selfish and meets a ghost who brings out the best in her not knowing that it was a ghost.
  • Wham! donated all of the royalties of the original song, Wham!: Last Christmas (1984), to Ethiopian famine relief.

Me Before You

A girl in a small town forms an unlikely bond with a recently-paralyzed man she’s taking care of.” This movie is a great romance movie and actually has one of the sweetest storylines. The movie also has a great cast and this is Emilia Clarkes first romance movie and I believe this is one of the best movies and is definitely on my favourites list.

Crazy Rich Asians

This contemporary romantic comedy, based on a global bestseller, follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu to Singapore to meet her boyfriend’s family.”This movie is a different romance movie starring Henry Golding. It focuses on Asian culture and actors. It does have a lot of romance aspects but also some comedy ones. Which means it is a movie that can be for everyone.

Something Extra

When this movie first came out I was sceptical about watching it, After I had watched I forgot the reason why. This movie actually displays many funny and romantic aspects.

This movie has some great Christmas aspects. This movie also has a pretty unexpected twist within the ending and altogether I would definitely recommend it to everyone.
