This Is The End, Rogen, Baruchel, Hill, McBride, Craig Robinson
So yes, you read that headline correctly. As if the apocalypse comedy "This Is The End" couldn't get more meta -- it's Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Danny McBridge and Craig Robinson playing Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Danny McBridge and Craig Robinson -- Franco is also on the soundtrack. Because, obviously. He's part of a band called Daddy, who get a track on here, but there's much more.

If the South by Southwest Film Festival was burdened by anything this year, it was an abundance of quality documentaries. It seemed that, while the narrative side of things was surprisingly sparse (where was the "21 Jump Street" or "The Raid" of this year?), the documentary selection was stronger than ever – there were more buzzed-about entries than we had time for, quite frankly (sorry "Medora!"), and almost everything we saw impressed us to one degree or another. Here is a quick rundown of a handful of key SXSW documentaries – "Lunarcy!," about people obsessed with the moon; "Downloaded," which aims to be the definitive documentary about file sharing program Napster; "Twenty Feet from Stardom," which charts the history of pop music from the backup singers' point of view; "Reincarnated," about Snoop Dogg's transformation into reggae titan Snoop Lion; and "I Am Divine," about director John Waters' corpulent muse, cross-dressing sensation Divine.

We have to admit, when we first heard that rapper, actor, entrepreneur, film producer and weed ambassador Snoop Dogg had changed his name to Snoop Lion and was planning on releasing a reggae album, we thought it was just another wacky scheme by Calvin Broadus. But we have to admit to being somewhat compelled and a bit surprised by the trailer for "Reincarnated," the documentary about Snoop's journey to Jamaica and the making of his upcoming album of the same name.

With Nick Cassavetes bailing on the gestating "Gotti: Three Generations" film to finish up his indie production "Yellow," if everything goes according to plan he'll likely be moving on to direct the Rick Ross biopic announced earlier this year. The film will tell the story of Ross' early days as a crack cocaine dealer in Los Angeles during the 1980s. Apparently, Ross was a major player slinging up to 100 kg of the stuff per day and he claims that he was supplied by Contras who were fighting the Nicaraguan government at the time; yep, those same Contras that were funded by officials in Ronald Reagan’s administration. And a man who is no stranger to "the game" will be tuning up the movie.
