This is an official movie review for the classic film: “Love Actually,” a true piece of cinematic masterpiece. “Lov;:, “Avengere Endgame” was the film of the century. An epic saga of Sci phi mastery, this film will go down in all time. The stage is set when 20 young men with a superpower fight for the win. The mere mortals of earth challenge Thanos , the god of the hammer, to challenge them for the earth. Only one man could win.

Love Actually is a charming movie filled with great humour and an all-star cast! The film is full of endearing different stories which are all very unique and are all linked together. Overall, a delightful film!
...If you are more into classic Christmas tales, then this is the film you should watch this holiday season. It starts back in World War II as two performers send a farewell to their commanding officer, before sending us forward in time to their bigshot careers in the entertainment industry.
They meet a couple of girls, help out their old commander, and reunite their entire division. The cast is great with actors like Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and Rosemary Clooney who bring the entire story to life on your TV screen.
Singing along to Irving Berlin’s White Christmas is not encouraged until the very end of the show, but it’s hard not to join in as the title song kicks off. Based on the 1954 movie starring the legendary Bing Crosby, this cracker of a Christmas show glistens with irresistible, snow-topped charm.
Danny Mac’s velvety voice leads the sparkling musical of love and war, reprising his role from the production’s original performance in Leicester last year. He and Dan Burton are impishly suave as gallant former soldiers turned famous performers, Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, who are searching for a new act for their New York variety show. Their infectious camaraderie is matched by the fizzing charisma of up-and-coming sister act Betty and Judy Haynes (Danielle Hope and Clare Halse), who woo the lads with their flirty, blue-feathered performance of Sisters.
...This movie shows the transformation of a couple over the holidays who turn from the Christmas Scrooge, into a loving family. They originally planned on leaving, like they do every year, for a distant destination over the holidays, but their flight is canceled.
Their family learns after it is aired on live television and they are forced to visit their family for the holidays. The two learn the importance and value of marriage and children, as well as some fun secrets about their past. It has stars like Reese Witherspoon, Vince Vaughn, Robert Duvall, and Tim McGraw to keep you entertained and swooning throughout the entire film.
When upscale, happily unmarried San Francisco couple Kate and Brad find themselves socked in by fog on Christmas morning, their exotic vacation plans morph into the family-centric holiday they had, until now, gleefully avoided. Out of obligation--and unable to escape--they trudge to not one, not two, but four relative-choked festivities, increasingly mortified to find childhood fears raised, adolescent wounds reopened and their very future together uncertain. As Brad counts the hours to when he can get away from their parents, step-parents, siblings and an assortment of nieces and nephews, Kate is starting to hear the ticking of a different kind of clock. And by the end of the day, she is beginning to wonder if their crazy families' choices are not so crazy after all

The Family Man
Directors - Raj & DK
Cast - Manoj Bajpayee, Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi, Gul Panag, Shreya Dhanwanthary
Without ever parodying the genre, The Family Man succeeds at being a surprisingly funny spy series; equally capable of snappy one-liners as it is of slick thrills. Like its street-smart protagonist, the new Amazon show is wily, adaptable, and intelligent; but most noticeably, it is a necessary foil to the painfully drab Bard of Blood, which will arrive, with all its similarities, on Netflix in seven days.
The resemblance is so uncanny, that I couldn’t help but imagine notes being exchanged between the two productions, via secret tunnels and across secure phone lines. Both shows feature a protagonist who is plucked from a life of domesticity, a rookie female tag-along, and a curious obsession with Balochistani politics. But beyond that, in tone, texture and taste, they’re thankfully quite different.
...Spend Christmas among the Urban Haute Bourgeoisie, or U.H.B., in Whit Stillman's debut film and preppie classic, Metropolitan. According to the title card, the film is set in "Manhattan, Christmas Vacation, not so long ago," and follows a group of well-heeled friends returning to their Fifth Avenue homes from college in time for the holiday parties (and after-parties). The wry and merciless patrician comedy was a revelation when it came out 25 years ago, and remains one today.
Summary: A group of young upper-class Manhattanites are blithely passing through the gala debutante season, when an unusual outsider joins them and stirs them up.
Director: Whit Stillman
Genre(s): Drama, Comedy, Romance
Runtime: 98 min
The Best Man Holiday
...If you're looking for a holiday tearjerker with solid performances and plenty of eye candy, cue up The Best Man Holiday, the (far superior) sequel to 1999's The Best Man. In the film, a group of friends stage a Big Chill–style reunion to celebrate Christmas together with all the trimmings: food, fights, football, and tragedy. The ensemble cast includes Morris Chestnut, Monica Calhoun, Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Regina Hall, and Terrence Howard, and they make the most of the melodramatic material, turning in performances that will have you cry-laughing into your eggnog.
After nearly 15 years apart, Taye Diggs (television's Private Practice), Nia Long (Soul Food), Morris Chestnut (Kick-Ass 2), Harold Perrineau (Zero Dark Thirty), Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow), Sanaa Lathan (Contagion), Monica Calhoun (Love & Basketball), Melissa De Sousa (Miss Congeniality) and Regina Hall (Scary Movie franchise) reprise their career-launching roles in The Best Man Holiday, the long-awaited next chapter to the film that ushered in a new era of comedy. When the college friends finally reunite over the Christmas holidays, they will discover just how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and romances to be ignited. Malcolm D. Lee returns to write and direct this sequel to his directorial debut. Sean Daniel (The Mummy franchise) will produce alongside Lee for The Sean Daniel Company. (c) Universal Pictures
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
...This sharp send-up of film noir tropes stars Robert Downey Jr. as a Christmas "shopping" thief forced to masquerade as an actor, and Val Kilmer as the private detective hired to help him get in character. There are enough twists and complications in this tongue-in-cheek action-comedy to impress hardboiled-detective fans and comedy lovers alike. While the plot is straight out of Raymond Chandler, the movie was written by Shane Black, who wrote that other Christmastime action flick, Lethal Weapon. Plus, if you're looking for some sexy Santa fashion inspo, Michelle Monaghan set the bar extremely high in this film.
All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun," as I so tirelessly quote Jean-Luc Godard. Pauline Kael refined that insight after seeing a movie poster in Italy which translated as "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang." These four words, she wrote "are perhaps the briefest statement imaginable of the basic appeal of the movies. The appeal is what attracts us and ultimately makes us despair when we begin to understand how seldom movies are more than this."
