Go see it! Summer movies are officially in full effect, and This is the End does not disappoint! Man of Steel comes out Friday, which will give the comedy a run for it's money, but I say watch both! I'm on the fence about the Superman flick, but I'll have to see it to make any judgments. I have some hope in the fact Christopher Nolan produced it. Anywhos, we are going to talk about how awesome This is the End was!
So, what are all these actors doing playing themselves? If you don't know, This is the End is the big screen version of the short Jay and Seth vs the Apocalypse, made by Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel years ago. The big screen version added a few more key names to face the Apocalypse including James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson. There were some great appearances from Emma Watson, Michael Cera, Rihanna and many others!
The basic plot line of the movie goes that Jay goes to visit Seth in LA, since they're biffers. Seth is invited to James Franco's house warming and he tells Jay, who is not so thrilled. Jay is not a fan of Seth's new Hollywood friends and just wants Seth all to himself. Of course Jay doesn't want to go and then ends up trapped in Franco's house with all of Seth and all his friends as the apocalypse begins.
The movie is just plain hilarious. Everyone is poking fun of themselves and each other. And if you are familiar with their previous work, you will just appreciate that they are all in a movie together. The casting is perfect, even the little cameos. Whoever thought of making Michael Cera a complete ass is genius! He was so beyond ridonkulous, I just couldn't. From beginning to end, I was dying. And the soundtrack was perfect, I might have to get it, or maybe just the movie when it comes out on DVD. This is the comedy of the summer, or year... Yeah let's take it that far, it was that funny.
No spoilers cause you just have to see it! But I will say that the end of This is the End, is by far one of my favorites ever. Absolutely freaking amazing.
Are you going to watch This is the End?
