New from The Movie Snob
This Is the End (D). Mom Under Cover reviewed this movie a little while back (click here for her take), so I’ll add only a short note. I think my grade is lower than hers because my expectations were higher. The premise seemed so promising—a bunch of movie stars playing themselves are having a party at James Franco’s house when they are suddenly confronted with a real Book-of-Revelation-style apocalypse. But as Mom Under Cover hints, the vulgarity and crassness are beyond description—probably something like Your Highness, reviewed by The Borg Queen on this site. There are a few humorous moments, and I thought it was interesting to get Hollywood’s take on Christian eschatology, but overall I cannot say I enjoyed it.
