This Is the End (2013)

Mainstream comedy movie, funny. All the celebrities! Playing “themselves.” Seth Rogen &
Jay Baruchel (who?) at James Franco’s house party; THE APOCALYPSE AND SHIT.
Meta-commentary on the frivolous conceptual currency of celebrity. Survivalist slapstick. Hollywood big budgetry. Rihanna is hot. Smoke weed.

 

THE FRANCO OVERLOAD FACTOR:   2.5 out of 5

Much Franco!  “Franco, you’re just a pretentious nerd.” “Not my art! NOT MY ART!!!”
LOL, self-awareness.

 

RELIGIOUS CRITICISM PROFICIENCY:   4 out of 5

 
o i c, literal interpretations of reward-based Christian folklore and colorful doom prophecies are ultimately shallow. Looks like video games tho <3

 

RAPE JOKE-MAKING:   1.5 out of 5

It’s funny until someone gets raped, amirite? Guy raped. Gay raped? Why. Gugh.
Cannot unsee demon dick :/
