So this weekend, the long-awaited The Emoji Movie finally opened and we're... well... so anyway, The Emoji Movie is definitely coming out.
There was nothing any of us can do to stop that, but here at Alternate Ending, we're going to make the best of it anyway. We're celebrating movies that make us feel just all kinds of feelings: movies that make you 🤣 then 😥 - movies that make you 🤔 then 😱 - movies that make you 😍 then 😡 - movies that make you 🤢 then 💩 - movies that make you 🍉 then 🗿. Doesn't matter the emotions, as long as it's a movie that put us through the wringer, we're going to be talking about them.
War! Huh! Good God, y'all! What is good for? Absolutely nothing, other than serving as the backdrop for some of the best & most famous movies in the history of the medium. And with Christopher Nolan's impending Dunkirk self-consciously bringing back the grand-scale production of the war epics of old, we've decided it's the perfect time to share our picks for the best war movies ever made.
This past weekend, War for the Planet of the Apes made a trilogy out of one of the most unexpectedly satisfying and successful reboots of recent vintage. To get ourselves warmed up for this third round of nihilistic monkey business, the Alternate Ending crew revisited the first two films that got us to this point: 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and 2014's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
In worth mentioning, Tim discusses The Big Sick, which is one of Carrie's top 5 anticipated movies of the Summer. Meanwhile, Carrie and Rob return the favor taking on one of Tim's top 5 anticipated movies of the Summer with The Beguiled.
Spider-Man: Homecoming arrived in theaters, the third big superhero vehicle of the summer, and the fifth of the year. With all four of them making it onto the list of the year's six highest-grossing films to date (look for Homecoming to effortlessly join them), I think we can safely say that 2017 is shaping up to be just about the most superheroic year ever.
So what better time for the Alternate Ending crew to share our picks for the best superhero movies ever made?
In the spirit of superheroes, Tim brings in one of his faves Batman: Mask of the Phantasm to the worth mentioning segment, while Carrie shares her thoughts on the aforementioned Spider-Man: Homecoming and Rob talks about a Wisconsin born film in Feed the Fish.
The maybe-not-so-long-awaited sequel T2 Trainspotting hits DVD recently and we're letting curiosity get the better of us. On this Spoiler Alert episode, we're going to take a look at both T2 and its 1996 predecessor Trainspotting - and just to make things more interesting, it's going to be Carrie's first time seeing either film.
In worth mentioning, Carrie discusses a family favorite with Big Hero 6, meanwhile Tim chats about the latest Netflix original movie to drop to streaming with Okja and Rob unpacks whether or not he thinks Baby Driver is worth the all the hype.
