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.

Let us just say that not all of the members of Alternate Ending are equally pumped up for the release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, but it makes for a great opportunity to look back over the secret history of spies in the movies. From the glamorous nonsense of the James Bond franchise to the grubby bureaucratic gamesmanship of John le Carré, espionage has been a treasured subject for the movies since the silent era, and we share our favorites.

In Worth Mentioning, everyone catches up with The LEGO Ninjago Movie, Tim catches the Netflix original First They Killed My Father, Carrie dishes on Snatched and Carrie and Rob both share their first concert doc outing with Stop Making Sense thanks to Patreon Travis Neeley.

All of us at Alternate Ending finally had a chance to catch up with the films we wanted to see from the recently-ended summer, and before awards season and the holiday rush start up, we take a moment to look back over the popcorn movies that were. How did the whole season stack up? How well did our most-anticipated films stand up?

In Worth Mentioning, Tim is FINALLY done catching up with all the Amityville moves with Amityville Exorcism while Carrie chats about No Escape.

From the mediocrity of The Dark Tower just a month ago, we swing back to the strong reviews and deafening buzz of It that just arrived in theaters with some of the biggest hype of any Stephen King feature film adaptation ever. And with 2017 shaping up to be the biggest year for King on big and little screens in memory, what better time for us to select our favorite films based on the blockbuster author's extensive bibliography?

In Worth Mentioning we all made it to theaters to see It (2017), Rob talks The Founder, while Tim bring us Quick Change.

For this Spoiler Alert episode, we field a request from Patreon donor Travis Neely, who invited us to take a look at the 1946 British fantasy film A Matter of Life and Death (initially released in the United States as Stairway to Heaven). One of the greatest triumphs of the writing-directing-producing team of Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger, the film looks at the life and death (and what follows) of an RAF pilot in the last days of the Second World War.

In Worth Mentioning, the AE crew cross paths with one another to take in very different movies, including: In This Corner of the World, Leap! and Wind River.
