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.
eu ri depois parei de rir depois ri de novo e depois pensei
This is a riot of a movie. The actors play themselves (or what we might expect them to be like in real life), who want to have a party.
The party takes place as the world ends.
Every cliche disaster event is in the movie played straight faced with slapstick/gross out comedy to boot.
This was very silly and my plane journey whizzed by watching it.
However, where the film went wrong was killing off all the people you wanted to see in a movie and letting all the worst dregs of Hollywood live.
how fun do you think this was to make
"everything i've been doing has just been a cry for help. when i came into your magazine james, it was a cum for help. i've just been crying and cumming, crying and cumming. tears from the tip of my penis, dudes."
Not a fan of these types of comedies. I like and respect most of the actors/comedians in the film, but not for this cheap humor. Rape, masturbation, sucking dicks, and drugs. All very un funny, un witty, and un clever topics that this film just does nothing but talk about. Its all cheap laughs for disgusting topics that only the dopiest of fuck brains would think is funny.... This film made all its money on the actors but too bad the script couldn't be as good as the cast. This movie is fucking stupid.
107 minutes of in jokes. Good for playing spot-the-celebrity, but overall quite boring.
I didn't enjoy it in the first time. When I watch again, wow. I miss a lot of references. They are so funny and awesome. This is one of the best fourth wall breaking movies in the recent years.
From a theological point of view, I can't help but be sliiightly bothered by this, but the sheer lunacy and the fact that it's absolutely hilarious trumps any qualms I may have about Hollywood stars having a shallow understanding of Christianity.
