CALLERI: Two new openings are rooted in motion picture history


Niagara Gazette — It’s the oft-told tale of a group of people trapped in a big house (a temple of modern art and architecture) facing a bewildering and chaotic evil lurking beyond the door.

Baruchel hates Los Angeles. He arrives from Montreal, where he lives, to visit his pal Rogen for a weekend of video games and pot-smoking. Rogen suggests they go to a party at Franco’s new house, where Emma Watson, Michael Cera, Rhianna, Mindy Kaling, David Krumholtz, and other young personalities are having one heck of a time. Within minutes, the end of the world begins with very solid special effects. Some stars die. Some escape.

The core group of six actors attempts to survive. The biggest question for them, aside from what to eat, is will they go to heaven or hell? Telling you more would ruin the experience. “This Is The End” is lunacy without restraint.
