In the beginning there was some kind of big bang or spark or God said “let there be life.” While I am not sure how it began, I am sure that we are all here for some kind of function whether that function is to make that left turn in order to save a life or skip a rock across a pond, I do believe that we are here for some reason that is wildly out of my control. That being said, if we can all agree that we are here to perform some kind of function than why are we always so awful to each other. Case in point in the last week I have sat down next to someone that I did not know and this is what was said “I have seen your girlfriend naked” in which I responded with “me too” and “I went to school with you, you know everyone in the class that I was in with you hated you” in which I responded “thanks.”
I am not sure if this is just my life or if this is a universal problem. Either way it is pretty awful.
MOVIE REVIEW: This is the End
The movie opens up with Seth Rogen waiting in an airport for Jay Baruchel (no idea how to pronounce the last name). The audience is treated to a few “hey Seth Rogen” or “it’s Seth Rogen.” I am pretty sure that it was terribly difficult to write (screenwriter: Seth Rogen/ Evan Goldberg) about how popular yet callous to the popularity Rogen is/was. That being said the entire film is laugh out loud funny. It is dirty and rotten like Superbad with the same slowed-down-take-it-all-in speed of Pineapple Express.
The cast alone is superb but the way in which they are written is really funny. Every member of the cast has a particular role that they play which is absolutely hilarious. Most of the scenes are comedy gold. The scene in which James Franco blames Danny McBride of soiling a magazine is one of the funniest scenes that I have seen in a movie in years.
The movies premise is a bit far-fetched and the resolution is a bit sloppy but the film itself is funny from beginning to end. I set out to see a super funny movie and that is exactly what I got.
