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.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw looks to redeem a fairly dry summer with its action-packed story of two dudes swapping sarcastic banter while constantly trying to one-up each other and generally getting on each other's nerves. In honor, we'll be sharing all of our other favorite examples of two unlikely figures being thrust together by fate to star in an action film together, quipping all the way.

In Worth Mentioning we cover The Lion King and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Disney unveils its remake of The Lion King, a film in which photorealistic lions sing and plot dynastic revolutions. To celebrate - or, for some of us, to take our minds off of the impending death of cinema - we look at all of our favorite felines of filmdom: lions and tigers and everything else down to the proud housecat.

In Worth Mentioning we cover CrawlA Woman's Face and Postcards From the Edge, thanks to Patreon Stephen Swarz.

Just in time for the new release Yesterday, director Danny Boyle and writer Richard Curtis's celebration of the enduring music of The Beatles, we are joined by the fantastic singer/songwriter Kevin Andrew Prchal, for an episode-length conversation about what the movie tells us about performance, music stardom, and the legacy of the iconic rock band.

Be sure to stick around to the end of the episode to check out two hear Settling Cliches from the album "Eat Shirt and Tie" and Look Me in the Eye from the album "Love & Summer".

In Worth Mentioning we cover our favorite movies of June, including: Toy Story 4, Child's Play and Rocketman (technically a May release). Thanks to Patreon Jaidan Vanmali, we also had the chance to watch All That Heaven Allows.
