This Is The End may have made you laugh in theaters, or cry if you’re emotionally fragile and/or scared all the time. So relive all that drama, good, bad, or otherwise by just buying the damn thing and saying you own the damn thing.

Click here for the oh-so-convenient link, and stay away from that Michael Cera boy. I know he looks harmless, but I heard he blew cocaine all over that McLovin’ boy.

7 Reasons You Should Rewatch ‘This Is The End’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-reasons-you-should-rewatch-this-is-the-end/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-reasons-you-should-rewatch-this-is-the-end/#comments Fri, 06 Sep 2013 17:19:06 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=256824 My only friend, the end.

The end is nigh. Well, the end was nigh, then the end went away. But now it’s nigh again.

In case you didn’t pick up on that very clear message, This Is The End is coming back to theaters this weekend, and if you’ve seen it, be ready to get back in the theater again. (And if you haven’t seen it, please do so immediately so that you won’t find the title and subject matter of this article so alienating and distant.)

Having seen the movie, and thus been granted the benefit of hindsight, I assure you there are far more than seven reasons to see or re-see this film. I don’t address them all, not because I get off on withholding, but because there’s a pretty good chance that you’re reading this having not seen the movie. And considering this entire missive is an effort to get you to see the movie, let’s not reveal everything, no? It’s a high wire act, but if anyone is equal to the task, it’s you, dear reader.

7. The Soundtrack



Who wouldn’t want to revisit Cypress Hill, Psy, Backstreet Boys, Whitney Houston, Dr. Dre, and M.I.A.? A crazy person, that’s who. The movie essentially starts with a party then takes a macabre twist, but let’s focus on the party. These jams, except maybe for Whitney’s “I Will Always Love You” are party regulars. You could stand to check back in on them.

6. The Cameos (Except Michael Cera, Who Gets His Own Entry)



There are a lot, and it doesn’t really spoil anything to share who they are. Some stick around longer than others, but the list includes, but is not limited to: Michael Cera, Mintz-Plasse, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Martin Starr, Aziz Ansari, Kevin Hart, Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, and David Krumholtz.

5. The “Characters”



As you probably know, this film is brimming with that familiar Apatow clan, who play themselves. Whether or not they’re actually playing themselves in name only, or if they’re taking on affectations varies from person to person, but it’s a nice little subconscious game to figure out if the guy you’re staring at on the screen is really as hard/nice/goofy as the “character” seems.

4. The Fake Pineapple Express Sequel



Argh. It’s so frustrating when you want to talk about something hilarious but you don’t want to spoil it. It’s like buying someone an awesome Christmas (OR HANUKKAH) gift in July then having to sit on it. Seriously. Just everyone see the movie so we don’t have to dance around these issues, and we can really just…just open a dialog.

3. Marijuana Can Make Repeating The Same Activity Feel New Again



You know, if you are in a state with decriminalized pot or, failing that, medicinal marijuana and you happen to suffer from a treatable affliction. I don’t think it’s giving away a major plot point to say that Seth Rogen, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel, and Danny McBride partake a little bit in the film. Why should they get to have all the fun?

2. Really Dissect Their Idea Of Heaven



Yet again, I must spare the newbies the details, as it’s a pretty great bow on the story. It looks very stark, very white, and very comfortable, but the soundtrack might ruffle a few feathers. Like, everyone’s feathers. Everywhere on their body.

1. Michael Cera!!!!



To say he “plays against type” is an understatement. His turn pretty much takes the film up an entire level with a modicum of screen time. Imagine if you rewatched Wall Street and saw Zack Galifianakis make a brief appearance as Gordon Gekko’s attorney. You get the gist.

The only thing more fun that watching Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen navigate the end of days in the film is to put yourself in their shoes in the video game version. So with that artful segue, let me introduce to you the game version of the film, entitled Hollywood Hellfire and available to play right here.

Dodge fireballs, lava, and all the other things that we’ve come to learn are bad from video games. Here’s a screenshot to pique your interest:

Easy enough that even you could figure it out.

Are you fan of Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, and Danny McBride but find it frustrating that you have no control over their thoughts and actions? Your problems are solved. The guys have This Is The End headed to theaters on June 12th and as a “thank you” to the fans, they’ve agreed to get weird with one another.

Your involvement is simple. Just visit the This Is The End Facebook page and give them a LIKE. The more likes that they receive, the more crazy stuff you can see them do. For instance, if the page gets 500K likes, Danny McBride will wax Seth Rogen’s back (trust us, he’s overdue);  650K likes will force Jay Baruchel and Danny McBride to eat the same spaghetti noodle like a couple of lovesick dogs;  and for 800K likes Seth Rogen will paint a (hopefully tasteful) nude portrait of James Franco.

So, get to it. There’s hilarious male nudity out there just waiting for you! And remember to check back here as new videos are unlocked.

*****UPDATE*****

Enough of you liked the idea of Seth Rogen having his back waxed that Danny McBride is now bound by Internet law to have to do so. Just in time for swimsuit season.

*****UPDATE 2*****

Enough of you liked the idea of Jay and Danny sharing a romantic meal that the two went ahead and did it. Lady and the Tramp’s got nothing on this.

For those of us who felt anger and disappointment after watching Paper Heart, vindication is here. The new red band trailer for This Is The End gives us a glimpse of the gruesome death Michael Cera suffers in the film. No sign of Charlene Yi but let’s assume she’s being torn apart by dogs off-screen somewhere. :lol:

The story follows an epic weekend in the life of Seth Rogen and his movie star buddies. It all starts at a party at James Franco’s house but things quickly take a turn when the Apocalypse begins — devastating Los Angeles and Judd Apatow‘s A-list. Great, now he’s going to have to put his kids in evvverything.

We all laughed at the Mayan prediction that the world would come to an end on this date, but now as I type this from the limbo state of eternal damnation I can see that maybe we should have listened better. Same in the case of Seth Rogen and his pals. This preview from next year’s This Is The End shows that they were all just hanging out having an Apatow buddies party when suddenly the world ended and now both Michael Cera and David Krumholtz are dead. Now we’ll never get a Numb3rs reunion special.

Oh God, has anyone checked in on Rob Morrow yet?!!
