An observation on two movies I saw this weekend.
I saw the movie the other day. This preview does not come close to how crude and sacrilegious it was. If I have to sum it up in one line:
It’s the end of the world as we know it. And I feel fine.
Unlike “This Is the End,” what you see in this preview is exactly what you’ll get in the movie. I don’t know why it’s rated R, other than a few curse words.
The critics love “Frances Ha.” The critics weren’t overly thrilled with “This Is the End.”
And given the choice, I will see “This Is the End” again. (I really hated “Frances Ha.” Of course, if you’re into self-indulgent 20-something New Yorkers living off their parents money, this is the movie for you.)
“Frances Ha” will probably get Academy Award nominations. “This Is the End” won’t.
Oh, one other thing.
When Hermione goes after those guys with the axe, she is totally justified.
