Alternate Ending

Alternate Ending was formed when three friends realized that they all shared a passion for movies. Tim had been reviewing films at his old blog Antagony & Ecstasy for over a decade, and Rob & Carrie had found great success with their year-old podcast, when they all decided to combine forces to create a new site, dedicated to their desire to watch and discuss the best (and worst) that cinema has to offer. The result is the website you see before you. What makes Alternate Ending different from all the other film sites on the internet? Well, we humbly suggest that it's the three of us: very different people with very different thoughts about the movie. Too many film sites cater to the same kind of audience, with one overwhelming voice in the writing, but what we treasure at Alternate Ending is diversity: diversity of opinion, diversity in belief about what film should do and how it should do it. We want to celebrate our different opinions, and celebrate yours as well. This isn't a site for people who just want to talk about the latest hot new movies in theaters right this minute. This is a site for people who can't get to the theater until the third week a film is out; a site for people who just want to find something great to stream online after the kids have gone to sleep, a site for people whose favorite pastime is to grab a bunch of classic films on DVD from the library and watch them all weekend. It's a site that believes that every great movie is a wonderful new treasure, whether you see it the night of its premiere or fifty years later. It's a site about discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time.

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.

In Worth Mentioning, Rob almost gets ill on the his airplane viewing A Cure for Wellness and Tim share his thoughts on the late George A. Romero's Creepshow.

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.

In the Worth Mentioning segment, Rob and Carrie finally get to Spirited Away, Carrie chats The Big Sick and Tim talks Merantau.

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.
