A Simple Favor (Amazon)
A Simple Favor follows the unexpected friendship between Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) and Emily (Blake Lively). The two women seem like an odd combination, but they quickly become devoted friends. Then Emily disappears and Stephanie makes it her mission to discover what happened to her. Stephanie sort of starts to take her place, especially with Emily’s husband, Sean (Henry Golding).
A Simple Favor is a fun murder mystery with a really entertaining final half, with plenty of twists. Golding is the male lead and holds his own next to the powerhouses that are Lively and Kendrick in this movie. Sean is sensitive and attractive enough to make you understand why Emily and Stephanie are drawn to him, but also dubious enough to make you wonder if he could have murdered his wife. A Simple Favor is one of the best Amazon Prime movies to rent if you want something that’s both thrilling and really funny.

Last Christmas (Cinemax Go)
Last Christmas is a Holiday romantic comedy about a woman whose life seems out of control. Kate (Emilia Clarke) has sort of given up on life after nearly dying from a heart condition. She was saved due to a heart transplant. One day Kate meets Tom (Henry Golding), who helps Kate start to regain control of her life and become more of a kind and loving person.
Many talk about Last Christmas because of the surprise twist ending. Last Christmas is a typical romantic movie, which means you want Tom and Kate to have their happy ending--mainly because of Clarke and Golding’s great on-screen chemistry. Tom is good at helping support Kate, who gets to reveal her kind heart because of Tom, in more ways than one.

The Gentlemen (Showtime)
The Gentlemen is the 2019 Guy Ritchie crime comedy that has an all-star cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Hugh Grant, Michelle Dockery, and Colin Farrell. It follows Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) as he attempts to sell his very successful weed empire. He’s trying to sell it to Matthew (Jeremy Strong), but the transaction isn’t as smooth as expected.
Henry Golding plays Dry Eye, “the antagonist” of The Gentlemen. He wants Mickey’s empire and will stop at nothing to get it. Golding is the right mixture of devious, scummy, and dangerous but - for the most part - still a comedic enough villain to not incite years of nightmares from its viewers.
