Hot on the heels of a raft of films using classic pop as their driver – Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman, Yesterday, Blinded by the Light – comes Last Christmas. This page has last christmas 2019, watch online, last christmas 2019 free download, full movie hd.
Directed by Paul Feig and co-written by Oscar-winner Emma Thompson, who also appears, Last Christmas uses the music of Wham! and George Michael in its bid to usurp Richard Curtis’s copyright on all things London rom-com.

The story centres on Kate/Katarina (Emilia Clarke), the daughter of Croatian refugees (Thompson and Boris Isakovic), who works as a sales elf in a Covent Garden Christmas store. Recovering from life-saving surgery, her chaotic lifestyle leaves her dependent on the goodwill of friends for places to live. Unfortunately, her annoying habits soon dry up any good will and she is constantly moving on. Into her life comes the mysteriously benevolent Tom Webster (Henry Golding) who flits in and out seemingly arbitrarily.

Perhaps Emilia Clarke plays the irritating Kate too well as it’s difficult to have much sympathy with her homeless plight; she rather brings it on herself you feel. Henry Golding as Tom is expected to do little but smile and look winsome, as he did in Crazy Rich Asians, and he does this with consummate ease.
The script from Emma Thompson, her husband Greg Wise, and Byrony Kimmings is low on humour, preferring to take aim at what it perceives as a xenophobic strand of British society. Yet Emma Thompson herself goes for cheap laughs with her fractured English and misunderstanding of English idioms. It culminates in a penile joke, the like of which hasn’t been aired since Mr Humphries asked if he could have Spotted Dick in the Grace Bros staff canteen circa 1975.
The film’s use of George Michael’s pleasant pop also misfires through lack of imagination. In Rocketman, Elton John’s music was used extremely well as a compliment to the evolving storyline. Here, the songs simply strike up on random play adding nothing to the plot or purpose of the film.
Oh, and ‘the twist’ and its denouement was a carbon copy of a Hollywood classic from twenty years ago. This, and the obligatory shots of a gleamingly lit pre-Christmas London seen many times before, sum up the whole film as derivative and unoriginal. It was also unforgivably tiresome.
Is there anything good to say about Last Christmas? Well, after watching this you’ll probably think of Love Actually as being a seminal work of art.
As the whole film was a self-contained cliché, it seems quite appropriate to describe it as a Christmas turkey to be avoided like the plague.
