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.

Some movies become big, beloved successes right off the bat, celebrated by one and all. Some movies need to fight for it: they're overlooked, undervalued, and just plain dismissed, treasured only by a tiny audience biding the day that might never come when the object of their affection finally gets its moment in the sun. For this episode, we're celebrating our favorite examples of these wonderful, idiosyncratic little gems, with our picks for the best cult movies of all time, no matter how big or small the cult. 

In Worth Mentioning we cover: Da 5 Bloods, You Should Have Left and The King of Staten Island.

We've looked at our favorite movie moms. And we've looked at our favorite example of movies about daddy issues, that most reliable crutch for lazy screenwriters. But with Father's Day coming up, we decided it was long since time that we gave good dads their time in the sun, which is why our next episode is going to be all about our very favorite dads in the movies. Maybe they're kind sources of wisdom, maybe they're fun buddies who teach their children the importance of getting out there and living life, and maybe they're the heads of powerful mafia families manipulating the lifes of dozens of people just to give their sons a good chance at a better future. We love 'em all, and we're excited to share with you our picks for the best movie dads.

In Worth Mentioning we cover The Half of It, Barefoot Gen, The Message thank to Patreon, Gavin.
