“This is the End” (2013) comedy film that was written and directed by both Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg which was also both of their first times directing. The film had which I would say one of the most comedic casts ever, starring Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson who all play a version of themselves in a post apocalypse Hollywood LA. There are also many other people you’ll see in the film but are not main characters like Micheal Cera and Emma Watson. This movie was such a hit it was released twice in one year. I never stopped laughing the whole entire time I watched this movie, every line and every event that happens in this movie is just so out there and funny. The cast I feel is what makes this movie. These guys always play in movies together and have this certain vibe that they can all play off of each other.
Jay Baruchel who plays himself, is off to visit his buddy in LA (Seth Rogen) to go to a open house party hosted by yours truly James Franco. Baruchel is not really feeling the Hollywood lifestyle and wants a break from the party. Rogen and him walk to the store down the road to buy some cigs when the ground starts shaking and breaking and then blue like lights start shooting out from the sky! And its all down hill from there…..
You have to like this set of guys and their style of humor, which to some may be offensive but to ones like myself find it really funny. I like how if it were to not be this cast the movie would have been a bust! The movie is now on DVD and OnDemand ! Thanks and enjoy ! — J.T.
