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.

Halloween is right around the corner, and we're in the mood for some horror! This time around, we're going to be talking about our very favorite movies about every low-budget filmmaker's favorite monster: zombies, the brain-hungry reanimated corpses that have been munching guts ever for over half a century, and were busy harvesting sugar crops even before that. As a special guest, we have the creator of several Zombie comic books, Robert Rios.

In Worth Mentioning, we cover Parasite.

Jojo Rabbit, winner of the TIFF Audience Award and Best Picture Oscar hopeful, hits theaters in which a little boy deals with the stress and confusion of childhood by concocting an imaginary friend, in the form of bloodthirsty dictator Adolf Hitler. Most imaginary friends are a bit more innocuous than that, of course, and we're going to talk about those non-genocidal imaginary friends in our next episode, from invisible rabbits to evil rabbits to bossy rabbits with curious hostility for bouncing tigers.

In Worth Mentioning, we cover Joker, Gemini Man, Monos and The Night of the Hunter, thanks to Patreon Cameron Shaw.
