Me & 3 Seth Rogen Movies

You either love this guy or you hate him. I think he’s freakin’ hilarious, although his roles aren’t very diverse. I really do enjoy him and I decided to watch three of his movies. Here are the ones I picked out.

Genre: Comedy
Year: 2007
Director: Greg Mottola
Cast: Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Bill Hader, Emma Stone
Description: Seth and Evan (Jonah Hill and Michael Cera) are best friends, inseparable, navigating the last weeks of high school. Usually shunned by the popular kids, Seth and Evan luck into an invitation to a party, and spend a long day, with the help of their nerdy friend Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), trying to score enough alcohol to lubricate the party and inebriate two girls, Jules (Emma Stone) and Becca (Martha McIsaac), so they can kick-start their sex lives and go off to college with a summer full of experience and new skills. Their quest is complicated by Fogell's falling in with two inept cops who both slow and assist the plan. If they do get the liquor to the party, what then? Is sex the only rite of passage at hand?
Opinion: It’s typical Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg humor. And I like it. I’m not a big fan of Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, but Seth Rogen, Bill Hader and Christopher Mintz-Plasse really steal the show here. Those scenes with the three of them just crack me up! Favorite character: McLovin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)
Most memorable quote: “I'd give my middle nut to start dating Becca”. – Evan –
Best scene: McLovin has to try to get liquor, but he worries. Especially that he should have kept the vest on.

This is the End
Genre: Comedy
Year: 2013
Director: Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen
Cast: Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Emma Watson
Description: While attending a party at James Franco's house, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and many other celebrities are faced with the apocalypse.
Opinion: I was looking forward to seeing this movie and it didn’t disappoint me at all. It’s so much fun. Although I’m not a Jonah Hill fan, the cast worked perfectly together.
Favorite character: Craig Robinson (Craig Robinson)
Most memorable quote: “I don’t wanna die at James Franco’s house” –Jay Baruchel-
Best scene: Seth and James find out that Jonah is possessed by a demon and they try to hide from him. But Seth’s apparently a loud breather.

Genre: Comedy
Year: 2011
Director: Greg Mottola
Cast: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Jason Bateman, Jane Lynch
Description: Two sci-fi geeks take a pilgrimage to America's UFO heartland. While there, they accidentally meet an alien who brings them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever. For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. When he discovers he's been taken prisoner, the space-traveling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town - a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy (Simon Pegg) and Clive Gollings (Nick Frost). Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.
Opinion: We all know the combination Pegg/ Frost works like a charm. And Seth Rogen’s voice is very recognizable, especially the laugh. It’s totally different from the Brittisch comedies they usually make, but it was highly entertaining and very funny. And I liked the supporting roles by Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader.
Favorite character: Graem Willy (Simon Pegg)
Most memorable quote: “This is America. Kidnapping a Christian is worse than harboring a fugitive” – Paul-
Best scene: The first meeting between Graeme,Clive and the alien Paul.

Favorite of the 3: “This is the End
