End of the World 2013 6 out of 10
So Bad that it was almost Good.
The End of the World stars Greg Grunberg (Heroes) and Brad Dourif (Deadwood). It is a cheesy disaster film that focuses on the end of the world as a result of giant Plasma Balls that are bombarding the earth. A couple of video store clerks that are really into disaster movies---try to use everything they have learned from those movies to survive the end of the world. This gives us as the viewer a bunch of giant plasma balls taking people out left and right in spectacular fashion. The video store clerks reference and repeat a bunch of famous movie lines --which must have helped the writers of the film cut down on quite a bit of dialogue. The clerks then decide to break sci-fi writer out of the mental hospital to help stop the end of the world ---which leads to a great Deep Blue Sea moment. The movie didn't feel the balls of plasma alone were a good enough antagonist so they add in a cousin he is only out to save himself as a extra human antagonist.
The movie is silly and preposterous and kind of fun at moments.
It was almost SO bad that it was Good---but didn't quite get there.
