A Wacky Buddy Comedy: This is the End (Netflix)

Synopsis

While they are gathered for a big party at their friend James Franco’s house, Seth Rogen and a host of Hollywood actors will have to face the apocalypse…

The opinion of CNET France

If you’re a fan of director Judd Apatow’s humor (Supergrave, Knocked down user manual) and the genre of the film of friends under substances at the very bad trip, It is the end is definitely made for you!

But what begins as a comedy soaked in schoolboy humor quickly drifts into a disaster film, with the end of the world (just that) coming to the door of the main characters. A supernatural twist that makes all the salt of comedy, which becomes a wacky and hilarious disaster film, with deliberately fun and gory scenes.

Between scenes of improvisation where pinching valves follow one another, and impressive end-of-the-world sequences, the funny rubs shoulders with the violent and the absurd in a clever mix that works wonderfully, thanks to the sharp pen of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. (Preacher, The Boys: Devilish). Of course, the interest of It is the end is also found in its luxury cast, which takes a lot of the head.

In addition to the central group of friends (James Franco, Seth Rogen Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill…) in their own role, the film multiplies the funny and surprising cameos, like Rihanna, Paul Rudd, Channing Tatum or Emma Watson (Harry Potter). We must admit that it is a real pleasure to see all these beautiful people suffer, and especially not to take themselves seriously.

It is the end is a highly entertaining comedy that will satisfy fans of American humor (a bit greasy), with the right dose of absurdity that goes well. The others will enjoy the parade of stars and the many apocalyptic, crazy and improbable scenes.

An amazing biopic: In the eyes of Tammy Faye (Disney+)

Synopsis

In the 70s and 80s, Tammy Faye and Jim Bakker were a famous couple of TV evangelists. They create a successful television channel and theme park, and are watched by millions of Americans. But rivalries and financial scandals will make their empire crumble.

The opinion of CNET France

This film, based on the eponymous documentary released in 2000, focuses on the figure of Tammy Faye, very little known in France, but famous in the United States in particular for her defense of LGBT rights. A fascinating colorful character, which is for many in the interest of this rather conventional biopic.

Retracing the story of this couple of evangelists over nearly 40 years, In the eyes of Tammy Faye does not avoid any obligatory passage of the genre, from the original trauma, to the irresistible ascent while passing to the inevitable decline. If the whole is therefore a bit conventional, and sometimes abruptly connects the scenes like a Wikipedia page, we must admit that we do not sulk our pleasure in front of this dive into the heart of the unknown universe (for us French), American tele-evangelism.

The film thus mixes the intimate dramas of the main characters, and the political intrigues with a certain effectiveness. We let ourselves be carried along without a hitch in a story that goes through the styles and fashions of the 70s, 80s and 90s. But the added value of the film comes above all from its main actors, Andrew Garfield (The social network, The Amazing Spider-Man) and especially Jessica Chastain (The Great Game, The colour of feelings), unrecognizable behind their impressive make-up.

If he is very wise about form, In the eyes of Tammy Faye remains a successful biopic on an interesting subject. We come away charmed by the quality of the incarnation of its actors, by the perfectly transcribed retro spirit, and by the melancholy portrait of an outstanding woman.
