Seeking a best friend who LOVES:












Long conversations that run into the late hours of the night. The conversation could have started out serious and meaningful, but somewhere along the line you start to lose your train of thought and then the random takes over. You’re so tired that you’re not tired anymore and then every little thing is suddenly hysterical and you’re laughing loud and hard like a fool and you start saying the stupidest things and you know they’re stupid and everybody else knows they’re stupid but then they’re laughing too and everything is a mix of silly sleepy randomness but you don’t care because you’re just so happy. Those moments are the ones I enjoy the most. They’re the ones I remember.

27: Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World (2012)

Plot: As an asteroid nears Earth, a man finds himself alone after his wife leaves in a panic. He decides to take a road trip to reunite with his high school sweetheart. Accompanying him is a neighbour who inadvertently puts a wrench in his plan. - IMDB

Why?: This was not originally on the list, but after watching Animal House for 20 minutes, it had to go. This film has been on plenty of end-of-the-world movie lists and I felt it could have relevance.

Pop Culture Reference: End of the world, road trip, romance themes.

Review: I wanna start by saying I was not especially looking forward to watching this, I mean it’s Steve Carell and Keira Knightley… falling in love. I mean wtf? But it all made sense.
    There are far too many apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic films out there and each one is usually heavily sci-fi. Some of those films work, if you have enough knowledge of uhhh the universe, or aliens or some shit. This particular film skips all that and basically just says, “the world is gonna end, a huge rock is gonna destroy it, you have three weeks of life left, no ifs ands or buts”. So all you have to think about is, how are the characters going to spend the last three weeks of their lives? Well, on that premise alone, this film was easier to watch and therefore much more enjoyable.
    Steve Carell surprised me, I’ve seen him do serious before and it wasn’t good. I’ve always thought he should stick to the slapstick humour of his previous characters, but thankfully in this he did a tremendous job of finding the right balance between serious and a little funny. He was believable. Keira Knightley was ok. I was glad there was no twist ending, everything happened the way it should have, in that everyone died.

In Conclusion: You don’t have to think too much, or laugh too loud. Just enjoy it, like I did.

Rating: 8 out of 11.

Seeking A Friend For The End of The World

I saw this today, expecting it to be a Romantic Comedy in which neither of the two actors, Steve Carell or Keira Knightly would suit the roles. It was completely the opposite. Both actors worked well in the same film believe it or not and it was not a Romantic Comedy.

The film was much deeper than the trailer depicted it, which is disappointing because if it had been different, it may have attracted a different range of viewers. Nevertheless I was impressed at the way it covered issues as deep as what life is itself and the importance of the individual.
