The Millennials : Survival supplies and gun safety.

 This is a clip from the movie "This is the End."  It's about the end of the world, and is pretty funny. Granted, the language is very vulgar, and some of the scenes are more attuned to a Roman sense of humor than a modern day American, but I still liked it.

    1. The strange thing is, as far as I know, that bunch of actors is pretty much that way in real life. That's a scary thought.

    1. When I first saw this movie, I was torn between laughing at their antics, and the horror of seeing virtually every rule in the book broken in 43 seconds.

      Like Matt, I fully expected the guy to blow his head off.

    2. If youre in the mood for a more serious, and probably somewhat more realistic post-apocalypse movie, I recommend 'Carriers'.

    3. I haven't heard of it but I am always looking for something to watch. I'll run it down and I appreciate the suggestion.

    1. Many young people have very strange lifestyles and even stranger views on what constitutes reality.

    I got it figured out. Those guys have not grown up yet. They are all acting like 14 year olds.

    That explains it.

    1. They're all pretty young. I get the feeling that even though it's a movie, and part of the script, they don't really understand the visceral reaction older people have to "playing" with a gun. Or, maybe they do, and that's exactly what they were after in the scene? Young people think it's funny, older people find it hair raising. I thought it was a little of both although I would not have included it in the movie if I were them, simply because the odds are good that someone who is young and drunk, high, stupid or all of the above may try to do the same thing and blow himself or someone else away.
