I work at a movie theater and patrons mess up movie titles all the time. Here are some of the…
This Is the End
Nothing ruins a party like the end of the world.
While attending a party at James Franco's house, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and many other celebrities are faced with the apocalypse.
YES! YES! YES!
If I could describe This Is the End in one word: A BLAST! This was probably the most fun I've ever had in a movie theater.
The all-star cast, the script, and the chaos was just all amazing! Everyone in this movie is so likable. These guys aren't even playing characters, they were being themselves! The chemistry is just outstanding. This Is the End is like a big inside joke, and we are all a part of it laughing our asses off with the cast.
Just look at this cast. I mean how could you not love a movie with: James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson, and Danny McBride. Are you serious!? These…
Oh My God! I now seriously feel like wanting to put on my Daniel Bryan “Respect the Beard” T-shirt, get myself pumped up, scruff up my beard with pride, raise my hands towards the Heaven with my fingers straight up and go on a parade shouting
YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
Good Heavens YES! This is the ultimate. This is like my special food. This is the End is the one film that I have been specifically waiting for all this while and finally I watched it. Now I feel like having experienced the Stoner Comedy Nirvana. Holy Yes. I am so happy that I am bordering on being called…
Fun is such an infectious thing. With perhaps the exception of Franco I don't care much for most of the cast involved. They've had their moments, but usually they only seem to do their thing and keep repeating that. In This is the End they do the exact same thing, but they do it while taking the piss out of each other and, most notably, themselves and their lifestyle.
That automatically imbues this film with an anarchic energy and humour that, despite its bouts of crass and lowbrow comedy, remains hilarious and entertaining because all involved clearly had an obscene amount of fun making this.
It's Rogen and Golberg's script that makes this ridiculous premise work. They play it straight,…
This Is the End is an indulgent but self-deprecating apocalyptic comedy from Seth Rogen and his famous friends. Holed up in James Franco’s palatial Hollywood house following the End of Days, a bunch of A-list comedians (and Jay Baruchel) try and survive Hell on Earth and each other. With each actor playing exaggerated or twisted versions of their onscreen personas this is a very knowing and self-referential comedy that predominantly succeeds because of their willingness to openly mock their own image.
Despite the strong word of mouth I wasn’t particularly keen on seeing this. I rarely find the likes of Rogen, Hill and McBride funny and the premise sounded like it could descend into an indulgent circle jerk. Thankfully the…
We just get paid to act like we're hard… but we're not! We're soft! We're soft as baby shit!
This film, above all else, is about male friendships being put to the test after the complete collapse of society with the necessity of proper social etiquette no longer being relevant. It explores the mysteries of that bond that is male friendship within the male psyche. So obviously it contains references to masturbation, sodomy, drugs, pornography, homo-eroticism and a tasteful giant penis statue. All those are a given.
Only about a quarter of the jokes in This Is The End hit home for me, which is enough to still make it one of the funnest comedies of this century! The film is just relentless in its jokes; blunt raunch, hilarious satire, classy comedic diminishing, and in its own right a power punch end-all to all of the comedies of recent years. Its improvised energy is unbelievably irrepressible, and the straight-up good time that the truly funny cast is having on screen is just plain impossible to resist, despite any feelings that anyone may have towards the cast before seeing it. It's just a seriously, goofy good time.
It's almost, in its own right, the answer to the Marx…
It's probably something you would want to watch with friends and with a good sound system because, it uses sound very effectively to scare you and to intensify a lot of the scenes but it's hilarious and I definitely recommend it to anyone between 11 and 30.
Just rewatched this on Blu-Ray with the commentary track.
Both directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg sat in for the commentary. Gave a lot of insight into the film, mostly the special effects part of the movie. Was pretty interesting to hear their takes on it, especially since neither one is a real big "effects" type director, of course.
It was also interesting watching the special features (making of stuff) of the movie. Those feature were interesting as well as the gag reels and such. With all these nutbars in the movie, it was especially funny to hear all the outtakes and improv lines that they went through. Fun stuff.
Really liked this movie. Straddles the line between comedy and horror. They walk it pretty well. Good stuff.
If you line all of their films up, this is sort've the comedy equivalent to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with this film being their "Avengers." Oh, and being really meta.
meu deus o que foi isso?
a family f***fest for bros country-wide, but largely a niche compilation of teenage boy humor for non straight males; works on certain levels, but feels cheap and definitely stands overrated
Good adaptation of the last book in the Bible.
I just happened to be in the right mood to watch this. Which doesn't mean I wanted to laugh or anything, but I was flipping through Netflix and thought, "*sigh* why not?"
It wasn't particularly funny. At all. I think I laughed maybe twice but not even legit laughs, more one "heh" of the Seth Rogan laugh.
The best part was at the very end with the Backstreet Boys cameo and impromptu performance. Everything else was just ho-hum.
It wasn't bad, it just wasn't my thing.
After enduring a week from hell (ha hell, get it? Cause this film is about the apocalypse. Get it... never mind) So anyways, after enduring a week from hell, I am in dire need of watching something to cheer me up. And shame on me for waiting this long to re watch this film, because this is without a doubt, one of the funniest and most consistently entertaining films to come out in recent years.
THIS IS THE END is a hilarious satirical, star studded film about the apocalypse that holds absolutely nothing back and I mean nothing back (these characters have no filter whatsoever, and I love it). I'm not a huge Seth Rogen or James Franco fan, but…
some of the comedy falls flat (and is problematique) but there's something about seeing james franco like this that makes it all worth it. michael cera's cameo is priceless
