Last Christmas (2019)

Stars: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding
-Comedy, Drama, Romance, Holiday | imdb | my rating: 4

Kate is a young woman subscribed to bad decisions. Her last date with disaster? That of having accepted to work as Santa's elf for a department store. However, she meets Tom there. Her life takes a new turn. For Kate, it seems too good to be true.

SCROOGE theme vs. rom-com sweetness.
Loved the George Michael and Wham songs incorporated into the film.

The Report (2019)

-Drama, Thriller | imdb | my rating: 4

Idealistic Senate staffer Daniel J. Jones, tasked by his boss to lead an investigation into the CIA's post 9/11 Detention and Interrogation Program, uncovers shocking secrets.

CAPTURES this bit of CIA history in a riveting way.
