    "See, but... that's bullshit. That's what everyone has been telling me since the beginning. "Oh, you're gonna be okay," and "Oh, everything's fine," and like, it's not... It makes it worse... that no one will just come out and say it. Like, "hey man, you're gonna die."-- Adam, 50/50 (2011)

    If I were being honest, the only reason I watched this movie was because of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anna Kendrick. The premise of a story revolving around a cancer-diagnosed man…

    Watching this, I found myself constantly relating it to 'Funny People'- same sort of jist, and Seth Rogen stars in both films. I'd take Funny People over 50/50.
    Despite a brilliant leading cast, I found it mediocre and forgettable. I barely remember it. I do, however, remember the final scenes of the film where it was able to wrench a bit of emotion from me.. otherwise, the rest of the film I found emotionless. Definitely not a comedy.

    This was ok I guess. Forgettable and had some bad misses with the musical choices. Felt kind of selfish for thinking to myself how much I wish I had cancer while watching this.

    I've avoided this one for quite a while since I'm not a fan of Seth Rogen or anything he's ever done. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has proved himself to be a capable actor in films like Looper, Manic and Brick so I was naturally curious about what he could do. Unfortunately, Rogen was still his annoying self with humor that felt out of place and yet Anna Kendrick helped me forget about it. I wouldn't want that guy as a best friend.…

    Like I said before, after watching This Is the End (2013), I ended up watching the movies that people like Jay Baruchel, Seth Rogen, James Franco, etc were in. For obvious reasons, I watched this since Seth Rogen was in it. While I think Joseph Gordon Levitt is funny to some degree, Rogen definitely alleviated someone of the serious scenes in the film.

    OK seriously I have nothing to say about anyone else. It was all about Seth Rogen for me.

    There is such a raw and powerful emotional sentiment to this film and it stays with you long after the film ends.

    What I loved about this film is that it jumped back and forth between the line that borders dark and serious, and awkward and funny. These are the kind of films I love the most. The kind of films that can make you both laugh and cry in the space of half an hour.

    The cast was top notch. Big shout out to Anna Kendrick who I felt did a really good job with her role and her and Seth Rogen were really good at supporting Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This is a must see. Go watch it. Now.

    JGL has made some interesting movie choices over the past 4 years. He seems to be involved in projects that are somehow different and interesting, even what may look like a straight up comedy at first (like this one) is in fact a more profound film than the cover might let on.

    Seth Rogan is excellent as the best friend roll and hey he didn't have to try to hard to play a stoner at the same time.

    But beyond…

    50/50 is heartwarming and not melodramatic. That's something that most cancer dramas fail to achieve. (I'm looking at you TFIOS)
