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…
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…
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.
A funny and well written script and the chemistry between all the actors are what make this a good "end of times". Recommended
All I enjoyed was the Backstreet Boys scene towards the end of the film.
Es una pedazo de mierda, pero me hizo reír mucho, que es de lo que va esto.
Morally reprehensible and hilarious on unparalleled levels in its self-inflicting gross-out humor, "This is the End" is the epitome of satire (although it might not even be a satire).
In the film, each actor plays a hyperbole of themselves- once again, it's only assumed to be hyperbole- as the apocalypse occurs and everyone except the turbo-sinners (seemingly all Hollywood celebrities) is sucked up into heaven.
"This is the End" is an apocalypse movie on the surface, a drug-fueled libertarian self-redemption comedy in the center and at its deepest is a bromantic comedy of the highest degree. The majority of the film focuses not on violence and gore (which, when it comes, is some of the funniest stuff ever shown on…
I really didn't think I'd like this movie, but damn it, I was won over.
So Good, but So Wrong......
If this clip don't appeal to you, than I'm sorry, but thats a bit sad (and this movies not for you, i suppose).
This Is the End is everything and more that you could possibly want from an apocalypse movie written & directed by the hilarious team of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The movie jumps all over the place with comedy, and even a few scares in between.
The basic plot is this; Jay Baruchel (Jay Baruchel) is visiting his friend Seth Rogen (Seth Rogen) in L.A. After hanging out for a few hours, they decide to go to James Franco's (James Franco) house for a housewarming party he's hosting. At the party are many celebrities, but that doesn't matter because SPOILER ALERT (BUT NOT REALLY CAUSE IT'S THE PLOT AND IS IN THE TRAILER most everyone dies but Seth, Jay, James, Craig…
In jokes abound in this comedy about comedians, celebrity and the end of the world via demons from hell. What could have easily been indulgent actually proves to be one of the deftest indictments on celebrity privilege, culture and the many downsides to stardom. But at the end of the day it’s just fucking funny, fucking ridiculous and fucking crude in all the right fucking ways.
Self-referential, hilarious and crude, This Is The End marks a strong directorial debut for duo Rogen and Goldberg.
