True story: I genuinely wanted to go see This is the end, but thanks to the fact that I live with a crippling case of “I happen to reside in the PE’s”, that never happened. The film is hitting Blu Ray and its lesser inbtred cousin DVD soon. Here’s what you can find on those special edition discs.
This is the End follows six friends trapped in a house after a series of strange and catastrophic events devastate Los Angeles. As the world unravels outside, dwindling supplies and cabin fever threaten to tear apart the friendships inside. Eventually, they are forced to leave the house, facing their fate and the true meaning of friendship and redemption.
