The end is fucking nigh!

The worlds end vs This is the end... whaaa?
Two movies, two similar titles, two movies with similar titles with moral implications, two movies with...aah you get the picture...

The world's end

 Six friends reunite to continue what they had started 20 years ago, finishing up 12 pubs in one night. What starts out as a normal day out with the boys ends up becoming something between Invasion of the body snatchers/Stepford wives and some story from Twilight zone. whatever..

Moral of the story.
 Underneath the exterior lies a message about how some of us hold on to useless memories and let life pass us by. Also the extremely tough choices we make as to either be free of any sort of control and reliance or become as society sees fit, marriage, a promising career ect ect. Are we capable of total independence and freedom? Can the human race coexist without authority or government control? Or are we just sheep?  On both sides of the spectrum you always win and lose.

This is the end

 A group of celebrity friends party it up and act like the Hollywood stars that they are up until the end of the world starts to actually happen and everyone has their comeuppance.
Think of it as the final act from the anime Legend of the overfiend. Including the giant cock.

Moral of the story.
 Being a dick doesn't pay. The underlying message of do good to others and every positive good Samaritan quote applies here. Is it easy to do? yes, Is it hard to do? yes. Being righteous and good sends you to heaven and anything else gets you eaten by some demon or something. So if you're agnostic, this movie won't make sense to you so forget it..

 So there you have it, My unbiased opinion about both of these films and their messages about humanity and salvation and all of that good stuff. And if you somehow missed all of the indications, it's OK, Next time I'll send my friend here to help you out a bit..

Top 5 Relationship movies closer to real life. not that i'm bitter or anything...

High fidelity
 Sometimes life begs to question, Is it random chance or just me? who knows, relationships are tricky and this movie shows just how a break up can lead to searching for answers in just about everyone else. The lighthearted ending is kind of expected but the prior is something familiar we all have inside of us at some point. 


500 days of summer

 Man and a woman meet and develop a relationship, It starts out break up first and gradually builds up to the relationship as perfect. Problem is that there is the expectation and actual reality perception, it's pretty sad to see because you can actually say to yourself, Damn, maybe what i thought was a good relationship really wasn't.. The mind plays tricks my friends..

Blue valentine

 Sometimes a relationship can start out so perfect it can be described as a picture perfect moment, This movie starts out this way and it slowly grinds the relationship to a halt, What went wrong? No definite answers here, That's the way life is, Things just don't work the way you think it's suppose to.. Imagine having the love you always dreamed of only to have your heart handed back, Probably in half. in a jar, with ants.

Chasing Amy

 Ah damn, that one thing.. that one innocent confession your partner told you. That one confession you can't let go of, Is it worth really ruining your perfect relationship over? It sure is! because hey! It's the battle of the sexes and someone has to be the alpha male.. And for your troubles you've won... Nothing.

Strange days

 The perils of holding on to the past. You drink,eat, piss and do everything in your power not to forget, It takes over your life in a way that it turns you into a mere shell of a person and naive as hell, When it's all said and done your perception has landed her a godlike status but down on real earth shes just a skank who's been used and abused and doesn't give a shit about you.. sorry man, That's the breaks.

The "Before" trilogy, sunrise,sunset and midnight

 On a serious note, This last entry depict a couple from two different parallels meeting by random chance,  We see the couple enjoy the day ahead of them sharing stories and ideas while time grows near for them to depart, What you expect doesn't happen and it will leave you wondering. What's next?. Sometimes you can't force life, Things fall where they may if you let them.
