Everybody loves a hero, but sometimes you've just got to hand it to a psychopathic bastard who can get the job done fast and dirty. With Red Sparrow and the remake of Death Wish both hitting theaters next week, we're going to be sharing out picks for the best - worst? - anti-heroes in the movies.
The team also shares reviews of Tim and Rob's highly anticipated film Annihilation, Game Night and the Netflix Original, Mute.
Here's a nice high concept one for you. Annihilation will be just the second film ever directed by screenwriter-novelist Alex Garland, after 2015's Ex Machina. Which is almost enough to get us excited, but second features tend to be difficult: for every one that lives up to the promise of the maker's debut, there are a dozen sodden misfires. Hear us discuss our picks for the best directorial sophomore efforts ever.
In Worth Mentioning, we catch up with Early Man, Black Panther and Roman J. Israel Esq.
The dregs of January are behind us, and ahead lie three months (or anyway, two and a half) of the year's cinematic misfits: too odd, or too strange, or too under-budgeted to thrive in the cutthroat summer and holiday frames. Plus a couple of gigantic Disney tentpoles.
At any rate, we're choosing to call this transitional period "spring" for the sake of sharing our picks for our most-anticipated films of Spring 2018.
We're almost coming to the climax of the most successful erotic film series of all time, with the release of Fifty Shades Freed. To celebrate, the Alternate Ending team is getting all hot and bothered as our threesome goes all the way in talking about our favorite sex scenes in all the movies.
In Worth Mentioning, Carrie talks about Mudbound, while Tim shares his thoughts on both The Greatest Showman and Marjorie Prime. Also, thanks to Patreon Julian Deberry, the crew talks about In the Mood for Love.
