I don’t care that this is bound to be next year’s most indulgent film — The End of the World sounds absurdly entertaining. Both labels make total sense (to me) when you know the basic gist: Seth Rogen and his celebrity friends (Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Aziz Ansari, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, Emma Watson, Michael Cera, Rihanna, and David Krumholtz) play themselves, attend a party, and are forced to take solace in Franco‘s apartment when the apocalypse kicks off. What happens from that point out is anybody’s guess.
A just-launched production has, naturally, brought a few set photos, the mere site of which all give me a good chuckle. Look at that shot of Cera and Rihanna, or even the collective grup either vomiting or being blown back. (Maybe both.) How does someone not get a kick out of it?

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
