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.
It was a good comedy, with a surprising turn around at the end.
"This is the End" is one of those films that you'd expect to be funny, and somehow exceeds your expectations in ways you never imagined was possible. A movie that leaves you laughing so hard, your literally gasping for air. A movie you will quote for years, watch repeatedly and instantly refer to as one of your favorite movies. Believe it or not, "This is the End" is THAT good. Its the Seth Rogen movie audiences have been waiting for since "Pineapple Express", and the funniest one since "Superbad". In this day and age, its hard to make a comedy this memorable, since time and time again, the same jokes get recycled. But when you get out of the fictitious/formulaic/gross-out…
I feel at some point in every dude's life, we sit down with a bunch of other guys, imbibe way too much, and imagine who would do what in some apocalyptic situation. And usually, as the conversation goes on thought processes devolve and we get more and more ridiculous in our scenarios and our responses to said scenarios. Ladies and gentlemen what you have here is that entire discussion in motion picture form. And it is glorious.
On one level, this is without a doubt the most self-indulgent piece of filmmaking of all time. But on the other hand, I've never seen a bunch of actors be so willing to paint themselves in such a negative light. So just for…
I enjoy the type of humor these guys go for, so there are a lot of legitimate laughs throughout this movie. Most of the actors get a chance to shine in this. In particular Michael Cera, Franco, Mcbride and Jonah Hill all having gags that I really enjoyed.
Not as funny the second time around, but still awesome. "It was a cum for help!"
"You were being petty, Tom Petty."
One star for Channing Tatum. Three stars for the Backstreet Boys.
Me vuelvo a reir como tonto cada vez que la veo, me encanta.
I really love This Is the End! What a vulgar, apocalyptic romp. The stand out sequences are the initial party and the Exorcism of Jonah Hill. And of course the finale. But no spoilers.
I also hope to see Jay Baruchel in more films. I've always been a fan of his and look forward to the Goon sequel!
