Now that you've seen it, what did you think? It's here! It's time! The apocalypse has arrived, what do you do? In theaters now is the comedy This Is The End, directed by Evan Goldberg & Seth Rogen and originally adapted from the short Jay & Seth vs. the Apocalypse. This time they upped the ante - five actors playing themselves get stuck inside James Franco's house in LA when the apocalypse hits. Franco is joined by Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel, along with Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson and Danny McBride. Is it the best comedy of the year? Once you've seen it, leave a comment with your thoughts on This Is The End.
To fuel the fires of Hell, I just watched This Is The End recently and enjoyed it quite a bit. It's filled with hilarious moments and one hell of a wacky buddy story, but it's a ton of stupid fun. I didn't really care for Jonah Hill much, but Seth, Jay and Craig were excellent, and Danny McBride played such a perfectly nasty guy. It took a bit too long to get going once they get out of the airport, get to the party, and finally the apocalyptic shit happens and that's when it gets really good. Though I also wasn't a big fan of the end, or at least the insanely trippy things they started throwing in like gigantic demons with penises swinging around. I didn't love it as much as Jeremy, but it is a fun comedy made by a bunch of friends just having a good time.
