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.

There are few pieces of U.S. mythology more potent than the romantic outlaw - the iconoclastic misfit for, through mischance or their own glamorous antiheroism, has ended up on the wrong side of society, and now has to make their way stealing, cheating, and otherwise scrabbling on the outer fringes of the world. Later this month, Queen & Slim offers up a race-inflected version of the Bonnie and Clyde story, and we're taking the opportunity to share our favorite outlaws in movies - noble heroes driven by fate, monstrous criminals driven by greed, and everything in between.

In Worth Mentioning we cover: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Ford v Ferrari and Pain & Glory.
