This week, Transformers: With King Arthur Now, Apparently? Whatever storms its way into theaters, and that's gotten the Alternate Ending crew excited to think about robots. Killer Terminator-style robots; romantic WALL·E-style robots; and all the robots in between. And that's why we're going to be sharing our favorite robots in movie history on our next podcast.
From totally inhuman machines, like R2-D2 in Star Wars, to the more-human-than-human tragic killers of Blade Runner, robots of every shape, size, and function will be on our lists, and we'd love to hear you takes as well.
During worth mentioning Tim shares Miss Hokusai, while Carrie catches up on one of her top 5 most anticipated movies of the summer with The Book of Henry and Rob finally caves into Netflix and watches War Machine.
Cars 3 is the 18th feature film released by Pixar Animation Studios, and quite possibly the least-anticipated one yet. That said, we're still going to celebrate, by sharing our picks for the five best films in the studio's 22-year history; a harder task than it seems, given how many of those 18 put in a claim to being among the best animated films of the modern age.
In addition, Tim brings Train to Busan to the worth mentioning segment while Carrie and Rob catch-up with Beauty and the Beast (2017).
Universal is making a second Hail Mary throw at establishing a cinematic monster movie universe all in one go, with The Mummy. And this would seem like an obvious bad move, except that somehow, The Mummy has picked up one of the last of the great Movie Stars to headline it, Tom Cruise.
Whatever you want to say about the man, there's no doubt that he picks unique projects more than any other actor in his price range, and with his exclusive focus on tentpoles. So to celebrate The Mummy, we're going to share our picks for the best Tom Cruise vehicles, from his early films to his 1983 breakout Risky Business, right on up to last year's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
The gang also makes good on their commitment to see Wonder Women and each of them share their thoughts as part of worth mentioning.

The Alternate Ending gang tackles a Spoiler Alert: Dark City episode. The sci-fi film noir directed by Alex Proyas. Roger Ebert's pick for the best film of 1998, Dark City is a dazzlingly designed mystery in the spirit of Blade Runner, and it anticipates much of the landscape of sci-fi movies in the years that followed.
