Quick Hits Movie Review: “This is the End”
on 2013-06-13 13:27
“This is the End” should be titled “This is the funniest movie in 10 years, the End.” Directed and written by Evan Goldberg, this comedy film is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Evan and his movie crew clearly went to great lengths never before seen in film to make it that way. Yes, it is crude. Yes, there are plenty of dirty jokes. Yes, it may go too far for some people, but I think most will find it hilarious.
The cast alone in this movie is just plain ridiculous. You have James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Michael Cera, Emma Watson, Rihanna, and many more, all of which play a heightened version of themselves. Without a doubt the best performance goes to Michael Cera, but Danny McBride is a close second. Nonetheless, everyone is hilarious and I especially enjoyed the role Emma Watson plays in the film.
A brief overview: They all meet at James Franco’s house for a party which literally ends with the end of the world and we get to see how each character reacts in the apocalypse. We get to see one guy get possessed, one guy get chewed alive, all the while taking plenty of illegal substances. All in all, this is a super fun movie and you will enjoy it if you like these actors.
Theater vs. Home Release: Both!
