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.

Disney's Christopher Robin continues the company's decades-long project of co-opting every last smackeral of A.A. Milne's 100-Acre Wood in the mind of children the world over. While we wait to learn first hand that a little boy and his bear will indeed always be playing, we've decided to take a look at movies based on classic books, with our favorite films based on children's literature.

In Worth Mentioning we cover Mission: Impossible - Fallout, Sorry to Bother You and The Equalizer 2.

Tom Cruise has done everything but commit actual seppukuon-camera for our spectatorial enjoyment, so we're excited to see what he has in store for us in Mission: Impossible - Fallout. While we get more and more hyped to watch him break his damn bones right there in the movie, we're going to take a look at our other favorite stunts from across movie history: the ridiculous car flips, high jumps, and hanging-from-clocks that brazen fucking idiots have put themselves through for the rest of us to say "well, that was cool" as we eat ice cream on the couch.

In Worth Mentioning, we all talk Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Eighth Gradeand Blockers.

It's an all-singing, all-dancing episode of Alternate Ending next week, as we celebrate - or at least, acknowledge the existence of - the upcoming Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again by looking through our all-time favorite movie musicals. Whether it's singin' in the rain or singin' in a Nazi biergarten, we pay tribute to the showstoppingest movie genre of them all.

In Worth Mentioning we discuss Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacationand White Fang.

We're pretty far into summer at this point, and if you haven't already been on vacation, you might be thinking it's about time to take one. In this episode, we discuss our favorite vacation movies. Whether it's exotic destinations and the wacky misadventures that happen there, or maybe just the pleasure of staying home with nothing to do, as long as it's getting out of the daily routine, it's enough of a vacation for us.

In Worth Mentioning, we cover  Ant-Man and the Wasp, Sicario: Day of the Saldodo and American Animals.

Despite it having been made pretty clear in the dialogue of the first three movies in the Purgefranchise, we finally to get to see what happened during The First Purge. It's the only excuse we need to look back at our own favorite prequels, that most wonderful narrative form that combines the pandering of a forced sequel with the thrill of knowing exactly how the plot is going to end even before it starts.

In Worth Mentioning, we discuss Won't You Be My Neighbor?and Hearts Beat Loud.
