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.

Everybody loves a hero, but sometimes you've just got to hand it to a psychopathic bastard who can get the job done fast and dirty. With Red Sparrow and the remake of Death Wish both hitting theaters next week, we're going to be sharing out picks for the best - worst? - anti-heroes in the movies.

The team also shares reviews of Tim and Rob's highly anticipated film Annihilation, Game Night and the Netflix Original, Mute.

Feb 19, 2018

Here's a nice high concept one for you. Annihilation will be just the second film ever directed by screenwriter-novelist Alex Garland, after 2015's Ex Machina. Which is almost enough to get us excited, but second features tend to be difficult: for every one that lives up to the promise of the maker's debut, there are a dozen sodden misfires. Hear us discuss our picks for the best directorial sophomore efforts ever.

In Worth Mentioning, we catch up with Early Man, Black Panther and Roman J. Israel Esq.

The dregs of January are behind us, and ahead lie three months (or anyway, two and a half) of the year's cinematic misfits: too odd, or too strange, or too under-budgeted to thrive in the cutthroat summer and holiday frames. Plus a couple of gigantic Disney tentpoles.

At any rate, we're choosing to call this transitional period "spring" for the sake of sharing our picks for our most-anticipated films of Spring 2018.

In Worth Mentioning, Tim shares his thoughts on what happened with The Cloverfield Paradox, Carrie dishes on Molly's Game and the crew talk about Patreon Travis Neely's pick of The Innocents.

Feb 4, 2018

We're almost coming to the climax of the most successful erotic film series of all time, with the release of Fifty Shades Freed. To celebrate, the Alternate Ending team is getting all hot and bothered as our threesome goes all the way in talking about our favorite sex scenes in all the movies.

In Worth Mentioning, Carrie talks about Mudbound, while Tim shares his thoughts on both The Greatest Showman and Marjorie Prime. Also, thanks to Patreon Julian Deberry, the crew talks about In the Mood for Love.
