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.
So funny i hurts.
This film was funny...for about 20 minutes.
Fui um tanto injusto com este filme a época do lançamento, talvez pela expectativa que a ideia de um filme sobre o fim do mundo estrelado por esses caras me causava. Hoje já o vejo bem menos desajeitado, mesmo com os momentos e ideias que não funcionam. O início é chato, mas é para ser assim, uma vez que a história é contada do ponto de vista do Jay - mas não há nada que Craig Robinson não salve. Ou há?
Although it's far from perfect, This Is the End was still one of the best comedies of the year thanks to a great cast that knows how to improv extremely well. None of it feels scripted (because it probably wasn't) and that helps to keep the pace rolling and the laughs flowing for the first half. Unfortunately it just seems like they ran out of ideas half way through...and the bloated running time doesn't help. The jokes hit more than they miss and there are some truly hilarious cameos and "laugh till you cry" moments. It's just too bad they didn't do a little more trimming in the editing room so the third act didn't drag on and on. Still, if you're a fan of these guys flicks there's plenty to enjoy here.
It was on TV, don't ask...
I've seen This Is The End more than five times, and my body still gets sore from laughing so hard. Calling this movie hilarious is an understatement.
James Franco: "Your mom's pussy was the canvas. Your dad's dick was the paintbrush. Boom. You're the art.'
Jay Baruchel: "Thanks, James Franco."
This Is the End has a clever concept and some pretty solid execution. Basically the story is that a bunch of celebrities have a party and James Franco's house and the apocalypse happens. James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson, and Danny McBride are the main characters of the film (all playing themselves) and they deliver the goods. Michael Cera, Channing Tatum, and Emma Watson all have smaller roles, but leave their mark. The film is full of hilarious lines and many great scenes that had me laughing my ass off. The special effects weren't very good, but the jokes were so good that I didn't mind too much. Overall I really enjoyed This Is the End. Funny stuff. 7.5/10
Pretty good, bet they had a great time making it.
