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.

With Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody about to rock its way into theaters, we're thinking about the most glam decade of them all, the 1970s. We look at our favorite films that capture that decade in all its cocaine-fueled highs and equally cocaine-fueled lows. Be they time capsules from the '70s themselves or modern attempts to capture the swagger and madness of that decade, we'll be discoing our way through all of them.

In Worth Mentioning we cover Bad Time at the El Royale and The Old Man & the Gun.

With Rob traveling for work the AE crew takes an oldie, but a goodie out of the archives with Top 5 Witch Movies.

Oct 15, 2018

The new Halloween (third film of that title) brings back Michael Meyers, one of the most infamous of all movie psycho killers. In anticipation of the piles of dead babysitters sure to follow, we're going to scare ourselves silly by telling tales of all our favorite movie psychos, serial killers, slashers, and every sort of person of murd'rous intent.

In Worth Mentioning, the crew covers Venom, First Man and The Endless.

Oct 8, 2018

Neil Armstrong biopic First Man is about to rocket into theaters, and we're celebrating by talking about our absolute favorite movies set in the inky black vacuum of space. Sci-fi swashbucklers, rigorously sober scientific true stories - if it celebrates the infinite wonders of the universe, it's fair game.

In Worth Mentioning we cover two new releases with A Star is Born and Night School.

Oct 1, 2018

Lady Gaga goes off the deep end in the fourth version of A Star Is Born. While we watch as she dives in, and wonder if she'll ever meet the ground, we're going to spend some time looking at the other times that musical superstars have taken their turn at acting. From Cher in Moonstruck, to Cher in Silkwood, to Cher in Burlesque, to Cher in The Witches of Eastwickor, if you're some kind of absolute fucking sicko, to somebody who is not Cher.

In Worth Mentioning we cover MandyHold the Dark and Life Itself.
