Last Christmas [Movie Review]

Last Christmas [Movie Review] | Aside from an avid scary moviegoer, I am also a sucker for a rom-com. And when a fellow Ibanese, a Sarawakian and a Malaysia stars in a Hollywood rom-com, it will be a crime not to watch it.
Movie Review by Rawlins, Last Christmas, Henry Golding, Emilia Clarke, Romantic Comedy, Christmas Comedy, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh, Romantic, Comedy
And the list of the cast certainly had me intrigued enough not to watch it.

Kate was destined for fame, ever since she was the lead choir back in Yugoslavia. And when they have to move to the US, it seems her life also turns for the worst. She couldn't keep a steady job (she keeps on applying for an acting gig but always comes up short. Her love life is just like turning through the page of a book, never a steady boyfriend, just a one-night stand and it seems that she keeps on disappointing her friends if she is not trying to burn their houses down whenever she is 'staying over' at their places as she doesn't own a place of her own and she refuses to go back to his parents'.

Her only stabile ground was working at a Christmas shop owned by Santa, a Chinese lady with a hard-to-pronounce name so she just named her Santa.

She spots an out-of-place guy outside of the store one day and decides to join him outside the store, looking up at a bird. From then on, it seems like she couldn't get the guy out of her way. He will be there to cheer her on.

At times, he will be missing for days - leaving her missing him with his corny psychology talk. Even though she thinks that he is a goody-two-shoes, at times, she needs him to ground her and let her make the right decision - her auditions, her parents and her family. 

But, where is their relationship heading?
And why is he keeps on disappearing without a trace?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.0/ 5.0 Admittedly, I kinda know where the story was going in the middle of the movie. There were hints of what's coming. But I stayed on waiting for the confirmation of my suspicion. Literally, this movie is very straight-forward and an open-end kinda movie. It's sweet and simple, with a few touches of humor thrown in between. But yes, the ending did make me cry. 

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 Blimey! I will be called biased just because Henry Golding is in the movie. But Emma and Emilia's act was spot on as migrants. Michelle Yeoh excels as a Chinese migrant here, with her love towards business and all. Henry Golding - he is a star in the making - no doubt. 

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again with the right companion. 
The pictures are taken from IMDb and other sources on the Internet. Thank you.
