With Wednesday’s release of This is the End, we take a look back at writer/director Seth Rogen’s best films that could be satirized in the flick.
The Nerd’s Eye View crew reviews 50/50, and one of them just wasn’t impressed. Andrew and Matt go over the news in video games, including some Arkham City talk. Thom and Andrew delve into Community Fantasy League discussion. The CBYHS theme for the week is “Body Part/Anatomy in the title” and it sure is a head-scratcher. The three trailers for Trailer Trash are John Dies at the End (2012), The 3 R’s (Oct 20), and Being Elmo: A Puppeteers Journey (N/A). And at the end are three more entries for Guess the Ending.

This past weekend, I saw 50/50. For a full review, check out Thursday’s show, episode 30. However, to briefly state my opinion, this felt tailored to me. I love movies about characters, preferably in a comedic state. Being a fan of James L. Brooks’ earlier films, I can see a lot of the influence on director Jonathan Levine’s work. I won’t waste your time with the reasoning why Joseph Gordon-Levitt may be one of the greatest young actors currently working (does Brick or(500) Days of Summer not prove it?). I won’t waste your time discussing Levine’s other movie the Wackness (featuring the immortal line “I just look at the dopeness. But you, it’s like you just look at the wackness, ya know?”).
