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.

Our next episode comes courtesy of Patreon donor Andrew Milne, who wanted to know our thoughts on the Indonesian action movies The Raid: Redemption and The Raid 2. No fair guessing Tim's opinions if you follow those links, but what will Rob and Carrie have to say about two of the very best action movies of the 21st Century, given their ridiculous hesitation to embrace subtitled movies?

In Worth Mentioning, we discuss Solo: A Star Wars Storyand Life of the Party.

Word out of Cannes is that Alden Ehrenreich makes for a pretty good Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story, but let's just say that we'll believe it when we see it. But if Ehrenreich does singlehandedly destroy the movie, it wouldn't be the first time. Carrie, Rob, and Tim share their picks for the most damaging performances ever: the times when a movie was actually ruined by bad acting.

In Worth Mentioning, the crew dishes on Deadpool 2, Carrie chats about The Glass Castleand Tim shares his thoughts on The Book Club.

You're only as old as you feel, but if you're pairing Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda in the movie Book Club, you're sure to be a contender for our Top 5 Geriatric movies.  This week we explore the films that best highlight those fine golden years, the highs and lows of aging and everything in between.

In Worth Mentioning, we discuss Overboard, Tullyand a Patreon requested review of The Red Turtle.

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and it brings with it Life of the Party, a film about a mom humiliating her daughter by going back to college (it's also just shown up as one of Carrie's most-anticipated films of the summer!). To celebrate both of these things, we're celebrating our favorite films about mothers and daughters. Whether it's a loving relationship, a fraught relationship, or a relationship complicated by the fact that one of them has accidentally been turned into a bear, movies about the difficulties of women's family relationships have been a reliable source of comedy and drama for decades, and we're excited to share our picks for the best of the lot.

In Worth Mentioning, Carrie share's her thoughts on Kodachrome, while Rob has a couple of quick hits on Marjorie Prime, Imperiumand Allied.
