Looking forward to every year’s summer blockbusters, there’s always a sprinkle of comedies to lighten the mood and change the pace a little.  2013’s summer has one particular movie that has made a blip on my radar, The Is The End.  The film is sort of “what if” parody of the December 21,2012 end of the world prediction, with an over the top comedic twist.  And since the world didn’t really end, it makes perfect sense to laugh at ourselves about it now. It stars a “who’s who” of this current generation of comedic actors: Jonah HillCraig RobinsonJames FrancoJason SegelMichael CeraDanny McBridePaul RuddDavid Krumholtz, and the list just goes on and on.  Even Emma Watson makes and appearance (that’s right, Hermione is up in this b*tch).  The kicker is, everyone plays as themselves in this Mayan apocalyptic comedy.  With Seth Rogen staring, co-writing, and co-directing it, I’m sure this will be worth the wait.
