Last Christmas

Last Christmas
Director: Paul Feig
Writer: Bryony Kimmings, Emma Thompson
Cast: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13| Minutes: 103
Release Date: November 8, 2019

George Michael‘s “Last Christmas” is an essential track for any Christmas playlist. And though “Last Christmas, I gave you my heart, but the very next day you gave it away / This year, to save me from tears, I’ll give it to someone special,” is a bittersweet lyric, it does play a huge role in Paul Feig‘s holiday romantic comedy Last Christmas, starring Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding.

The film is breezy, tender, warm, and sweet at best, though it is a bit weighed down by its predictability. Still, looking past its flaws and embracing the cheerful hope it joyfully expresses, Last Christmas can go from essential track on any Christmas playlist to essential watching during the holiday season. Check out my review below.

Last Christmas

There are many songs that a person can add to their holiday season playlist, and you’d be very likely to find George Michael‘s “Last Christmas” on a lot of them. That same song will serve as the title for Paul Feig‘s romantic comedy Last Christmas, starring Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones, Solo: A Star Wars Story) and Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians, A Simple Plan).

In the film, Kate (Clarke) is a struggling singer with a troubled past who works at a year-long Christmas shop. Though a series of bad decisions seems to follow her wherever she goes, she finds Tom (Golding), a person who sees through all her flaws and helps her find the joys in life despite her cynical disposition. Check out the full trailer below.

It was a crazy rich year for everyone involved with Crazy Rich Asians. Not only did it make truckloads of money, it’s also a turning point in the representation movement, particularly for Asian representation.

So after the film earned itself two Golden Globe nominations, plans for the sequels are coming to light. According to new reports, the plan now is to shoot the two sequels to Kevin Kwan‘s novels back-to-back. More on the report below.

Crazy Rich Asians
Director: Jon M. Chu
Writer: Adele Lim, Peter Chiarelli
Cast: Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan, Awkwafina, Kris Aquino, Lisa Lu, Ken Jeong, Michelle Yeoh
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | Minutes: 121
Release Date: August 15, 2018

Romantic comedies may be a dime a dozen, but every once in a while there comes one that can change the course of cinema. And in the age of having more representation on the big screen, no film is more important than Crazy Rich Asians. Director Jon M. Chu‘s adaptation of the Kevin Kwan novel of the same name represents that shift. It’s a film that changes the genre by looking at it from a different perspective, one that has been largely ignored for almost an entire generation.

And because of that, Crazy Rich Asians is not only a special film but one that is also highly entertaining and enlightening. Check out my full review below.

Jason Isaacs in Event Horizon

We already know that the main character of the new Star Trek TV series, titled Star Trek: Discovery, will not be a captain. At least not to start. Instead, the main character will be a lieutenant commander played by The Walking Dead star Sonequa Martin-Green.

But the starship Discovery does still need a captain, and CBS has found the actor to play him. It’s being reported that Jason Isaacs has joined the cast of the show, and will play a character named Captain Lorca.
