“The end of the world comes to tinseltown”
“Nut up or shut up”
This comic riff on the Zombie movie as plenty of things going for it. You’ve got an awkward geek, Jessie Eisenberg, forming an odd couple match with Woody Harleson whose has two motivations in life – killing Zombies and finding the world’s last surviving Twinkie bar.
However, the film goes onto another dimension altogether thanks to an inspired cameo from Bill Murray.
Have a look at this article if you want to watch some great movies like ‘Zombieland’.
“A romantic comedy, with zombies”
Here’s how us Brits would handle the apocalypse – we’ll find a pub and wait for it all to die down. Simon Pegg teams up with Nick Frost to battle zombies, heal his relationship with his step Dad and get his girlfriend back all at the same time.
Somehow this manages to achieve the double whammy of being funny, while pretty frightening at the same time. The scene where they’re beating a Zombie to death to the tune of Queen’s ‘Don’t Stop me Now’ is something to be treasured.
“Fugitive, celebrity, slacker, joker, alien.”
What Simon Pegg is to British audiences, Seth Rogan is in the USA so it was perhaps inevitable that they would team up at some point.
Here we have Seth Rogan as the wise cracking alien Paul who’s trying to escape from Area 51. To help him out he enlists the help of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost – two comic book geeks trying to find some aliens.
“Tonight is our last party as high school people”
A slight change of pace, but the same people and the same humour.
Here we see the team that brought you This is the End in the film that made their name. Superbad sees to high school students on the point of making the break for college. They’re about to go to their final party of high school and they’re determined to do one thing before they go – have sex with a real girl.
If this is what they were like at school then The World’s End is what happens if the kids of Superbad (find some similar films here!) get famous.
This is the End is not quite your average kind of movie. It’s the end of the world and the stars are playing extremely unpleasant versions of themselves – or at least we hope we are.
However, there are others will appeal to that same base kind of humour. Here are a few other similar movies to This is the End.
“One night, six friends, 12 pubs. Total annihilation”
If for no other reason than because I keep getting the names mixed up. Here Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are united again as middle aged friends attempting to relive a famous pub crawl of their youth.
As if that’s not a big enough challenge, they find the town’s been invaded by a bunch of body snatching aliens. Last orders anybody?
“Two fallen Angels have found a loophole that will get them back into heaven.”
Kevin Smith was doing stoner comedy long before Seth Rogan ever thought of it and here he is mixing it with religion and Armageddon.
Here, the lord God almighty has gone missing after taking a holiday on Earth. It’s up to a couple of stoners and some heavenly helpers to stop all hell breaking loose.
It was deemed too controversial for some at the time, but these days it seems rather tame.
