With Star Wars: The Last Jedi less than a fortnight away, the Alternate Ending crew makes a terrible discovery: Carrie has never seen any other Star Wars film than Rogue One. Clearly, this cannot stand, and so we invite you to join us as three people with very different tastes and very different relationships to this franchise try to tackle the most iconic film series in history.
First up: the 1977-1983 run of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, the generation-defining trio of space operas that is the wellspring for so much of the subsequent history of world cinema. Shhh, everybody! Don't tell Carrie how the second one ends!
Depending on where you live, this past weekend you might have been able to see The Disaster Artist, director-star James Franco's take on the making of the infamous The Room, the movie that taught us all that no matter how upset you are, you can always cheer right up by saying hai to your friend Mark, and that nothing helps a cancer diagnosis like promptly forgetting it.
With an excuse like that, how could we possibly pass up the chance to celebrate our all-time favorite bad movies? Whether they involve John Travolta in dreadlocks or gorillas in diving helmets, we're celebrating our favorite examples of movies so bad in every respect that they couldn't be more precious, pleasurable entertainment.
