Your hosts of RB2 (Jay, Nick, and Brian) close out 2020 season 1 with This is the End. A post-apocalyptic movie during a pandemic. Can’t get anymore ironic than that. The RB2 trio keep their composure as best as possible while reviewing this comedy reel. And they also booze it up with a post-apocalyptic brew from Three 3’s.
Armageddon meets comedy in the laugh-out-loud movie This is The End
This is The End is an outrageous comedy that delivers on its promise of action-packed humor. Directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the film stars a who’s who of comedic talent, including James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson. The plot is simple: a group of Hollywood actors, playing themselves, attend a party at James Franco’s house when the apocalypse hits Los Angeles. As they try to survive, tensions rise and hilarity ensues.
One of the highlights of the movie is the chemistry between the stars. They play exaggerated versions of themselves, poking fun at their public personas and playing off each other’s comedic strengths. Franco’s pretentiousness, Hill’s insecurity, and McBride’s obnoxiousness are all on full display, and the actors seem to be having a blast making fun of themselves.
But This is The End is more than just a movie about Hollywood actors making fun of themselves. It’s also a movie about friendship and loyalty. As the characters are forced to confront the end of the world, they realize that their relationships with each other are more important than anything else. It’s a heartwarming message that’s wrapped up in a raunchy, profanity-laden package.
The movie is also full of over-the-top action sequences that are both hilarious and thrilling. The sight of the actors fighting off demons and monsters with improvised weapons is a joy to watch. The special effects are impressive, and the action is choreographed with a sense of humor that’s often missing from action movies.
Overall, This is The End is a raucous, action-packed comedy that’s sure to please fans of the stars and the genre. It’s a hilarious satire of Hollywood culture that also manages to be a heartwarming celebration of friendship.
