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…
Raunchy apocalypse comedy where Satan's 80 foot penis is sliced off by a beam from heaven, and two grown men argue about cumming on one another after the rapture fails to take them. Actors playing the worst versions of themselves is a blueprint for humor if I've ever seen one. I do, however, doubt this will age well.
Hilarious film. I feel like if I was in this situation, I'd have kicked Jonah Hill's ass onto the street. Also the part with Michael Cera is classic. (hell all the cameos are good)
In a fight, I would take Emma Watson over any of them. Def. over Jay Berschel.
(Snickers is better than Milky Way)
Don't worry Jason Segel, I can forgive you for making fun of HIMYM.
What a colossal waste of time! Even their attempt to be serious was lame and so theologically flawed. When it comes to comedy, this is the crowd to avoid like the plague, or maybe like an apocalypse.
I'd rather die than spend the apocalypse with these people.
Funny and intriguing, This Is The End is a great modern comedy:)
starts out cool and then ... ahh.
even though that cast is really cool
With its phenomenal cast, "This is the End" is one of the funniest comedies I have ever seen. Well written, acted, and paced "This is the End" will succumb as one of the better comedies the past 15 years
I enjoyed this a lot more than I ever expected to and I laughed out loud a lot more than I usually do at films these days and that felt good.
Very rough, and I've probably missed one or two things, but aye, it is what it is.
a revised list bc my previous one was from 4 years ago and i don't necessarily agree with half of…
