Alternate Ending was formed when three friends realized they all shared a passion for movies. Our goal is to save you time and money by sharing our thoughts and recommendations on which movies to race to theaters for, which to watch at home and those to actively avoid. What makes Alternate Ending different from other film podcasts? Well, we’re not 5 dudes in a room talking about our passion for Fight Club and Braveheart. We’re two dudes, and a lady, of which our tastes are quite varied. Rob, ...

Valentine's Day is just behind us, but we're still feeling a little swoony and amorous. That's why our next episode is going to be dedicated to those movie moments that make us feel all tingly and gushy inside, with our picks for the top 5 love scenes in movie history. Maybe they're as sweet as a first kiss on a spring day; maybe they're as hot and…
 
You've probably never heard of Little Fish and that's a real problem. It's like when you hear some 14 year old, who is also an Inta-Snap-Tic-Tac-Toe influencer, makes bazillions of dollars singing auto-tuned rhymes, while the actual musical geniuses are eating ramen and playing at dive bars in Chicago. I'll get this out of the way first, the "will …
 
I'll put my hand on the bible right now and tell you right now that Mother Schmuckers will be the weirdest movie you'll see all year. Weirder than The Holy Mountain. Well, maybe equally weird but in such different ways. There's fecal consumption and bestiality and plenty of unshaven-body nudity. What am I even saying, it's exactly The Holy Mountain…
 
In the chaos of Sundance we had about 10 minutes to spare. Luckily Raspberry was just 7 breezy minutes between me and snagging some lunch. At minute 1 my eyes were quickly pooling with water, by minute 2 I had tears streaming down my face, by minute 3 I was laughing, at minute 4 I was laughing through sobs, coming in at minute 5 I was audibly cryin…
 
I'm going to tag this post as #journalingforwellness and #freetherpy and hope that you don't throw rotten tomatoes at me as a traverse my feelings on Cowboys. The last few years has forced me to grapple with some hard truths about myself. I've spent the majority of my life thinking that I was "good" just because I don't care what you look like, who…
 
Jockey didn’t make my most anticipated list of Sundance, because frankly, horse movies usually depress me. The horse always gets injured or dies or gets injured and then dies and who amongst us really needs that kind of heartbreak right now? Well shame on me for judging In a surprising turn, I don’t even really remember much about a horse in Jockey…
 
Well, Sundance is over and we're all breathing a collective sigh of exhausted relief. Over the course of 5 days, we cumulatively watched over 50 features and shorts. While our experiences were wildly different, with Tim watching at least 7 films a day and cranking out reviews, while Rob and I averaged 3-4 films a day and stressed about prepping for…
 
Eight for Silver made the Most Anticipated Movies of Sundance lists for both Rob AND Tim. Despite our often differing tastes, there are still through lines that connect us. For this film, “extreme violence and gore,” meets werewolves, was all they needed to know. I’ll tell you my worry, for this Eight For Silver interview For starters, Boyd Holbroo…
 
While the experience of the students at Lowell High School is many standard deviations from my own, its exploration is an empathy trip, nevertheless. The college application process has become increasingly rigorous and the competition for top tier schools is tight. The teens in Try Harder! have centered their entire high school experience around jo…
 
From sleeping amongst the wildlife to building set pieces from scratch, Robin Wright went all in on Land Robin Wright hasn't done many interviews on her new film Land. We know, because we googled like crazy to capture a glimpse of her, in an effort to baseline our conversational expectations. So why us, we thought? We're not professional interviewe…
 
The Alternate Ending gang is going to the Sundance Film Festival! Or, anyway, the Sundance Film Festival is coming to us: due to the ongoing public health crisis, the 2021 edition of the fest is going to be conducted entirely online from January 28-February 3, meaning that we don't even have to brave the snowy mountains of Utah to get a peek at the…
 
So we've reached the end of another very normal year, full of very normal movies, and there's only one thing to do: painstakingly sort through all the many, many films available to us, to select our top ten best movies of 2020. Join us as we share notes on our many adventures with streaming, our very few (and genuinely nerve-wracking experiences wi…
 
Almost as much as Santa Claus and reindeer, you can't have a Christmas movie without some miserable SOB who starts out by humbugging their way through throngs of cheerful celebrants and has, by the end of the second hour, learned the True Meaning of Christmas, whatever it might be in this case. To help our own hearts grow two-and-a-half sizes at th…
 
This week's podcast topic comes from Patreon subscriber Jack Chivers, who has asked us to look at our favorite films from the United Kingdom, a national cinema broad enough to include stories about nice people laughing while having tea, crying while having tea, and getting shot by gangsters while having tea. There are films as intimate as a working…
 
If there's one thing The Nest is not, it's light and breezy. It's heavy and chest tightening and emotionally dense. So naturally, with so much to unpack, our first question for Sean Durkin was if he saw any resemblance between Jude Law and Rob Jarosinski. There was awkward laughter, but no confirmation. A bit about Sean Durkin Born in Canada (lucky…
 
I'll admit it, because I'm nothing if not honest, I had no idea who the director of Run, Aneesh Chaganty was by name (I still question how I got roped into this movie podcast thing, but anyway). But then, I saw that he was the writer/director of Searching, which I really loved and suddenly, the pressure felt a bit greater. Just a bit about Aneesh C…
 
Freaky Friday the 13th You can't keep a good slasher killer down, so we've got even more Freaky Behind the Scenes coming your way! This time I had the opportunity to sit down with co-screenwriter Michael Kennedy, who notoriously teamed up with director and co-writer Chris Landon in a pitch rehearsal turned creative partnership! We sat down to chat …
 
All week, Rob annoyingly wandering around the house talking about our upcoming Let Him Go interview with Thomas Bezucha. He was using a thick Italian mobster accent and probably mispronouncing his name "Ba-zooooo-ka." By the time we got to the interview, it was so burned in my brain, that there's a fair chance I referred to him as a large rocket la…
 
I have been extremely lucky in my life as an entertainment personality-type person to have already had the chance to podcast with Chris Landon twice before (most recently about the movie Carrie). Not only is Chris the writer-director of Happy Death Day, Happy Death Day 2U, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, and his new upcoming feature Freaky, c…
 
Have you ever noticed the pattern of successful entertainment personalities, having experienced some sort of adversity or hardship when they were young? The comedian whose Dad was an abusive jerk. The actor who was bullied for their acne or their off-brand jeans or their haircut (you know the important stuff that bullies care about). As a creator, …
 
Screen legend Sean Connery passed away on October 31 at the age of 90, and we at Alternate Ending celebrate his career by devoting this podcast to the highlights of his career - the best performances, the best movies, and the most sadly appropriate opportunity Carrie has ever had to put Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade at #1 on her top 5 list. In…
 
This week we had the chance to sit down with The Dark and the Wicked producer, Adrienne Biddle. We talked about the making of the film and our feelings on the movie, but we ended up spending a good chunk of time discussing her path to becoming a film producer. Schooling, early grunt-jobs, relationship building, the whole thing. It was such an enlig…
 
Ten minutes into The True Adventures of Wolfboy, we were triggered. You see, I usually shut off movies about bullying and Rob is super self-conscious about his body hair (he has the perfect amount of body hair), so when a young kid with hypertrichosis gets verbally abused by some douchebags at a carnival, tensions were high. About The True Adventur…
 
Welcome to the inaugural episode of Bride of Alternate Ending! Tim and AE contributor Brennan have joined forces for a monthly Patreon show covering everything horror! We’re starting out our run with a special Halloween preview on the main feed dicussing the 1975 cult classic THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW! Topics include unpopular opinions on the l…
 
Halloween is almost upon us, which means it's time for our annual dive into the spooky and scary. This year, we're going to be blunt and to the point: our top 5 jump scares in movie history. The simplest, most brutal way a filmmaker can give audiences a good wallop, jump scares sometimes get slagged for being too cheap and artless, but used well, t…
 
Rob and I got into a marital tift the other night because I made the claim that I never lie. He didn’t agree. He contests that I omit details in a way that leads people to believe something that isn’t true. That’s not lying right? That’s just a totally healthy need for people to like me. So, in our interview with Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead, …
 
The truth is, if I’d known what Cicada was going to be about, I’m not sure I would have watched the film. I would have read the three sentence synopsis and surmised that it would be too painful, too grueling and that it would break my heart - and it was, and it did. Though, beyond the stomach-knots and frustrated tears, there is so much beauty and …
 
When I was in my mid-twenties, I spent my days in a cubical, mindlessly tinkering with the calculator on my desk, figuring out how much I had to save to retire at 40. Sometimes, I would organize my post-it notes in rainbow color order, and the pens too, if I wasn't too busy. There was a coffee shop in my building, so every few hours, I'd sucker a c…
 
If you give me just 2 seconds I'm going to blow your mind. Love and Monsters is going to be your favorite movie of 2020. There I said it. Admittedly, it's not mine. But it will be yours. That's because it's TIED for my favorite movie of the year with Spontaneous. Which, I realize it cheating, but there are no rules around here. First a bit about Mi…
 
October is shaping up to be a big month for Netflix original movies, between Radha Blank's Sundance prizewinner The 40-Year-Old Version (premieres 10/9). Aaron Sorkin's The Trial of the Chicago 7 (premieres 10/16), Ben Wheatley's Rebecca (premieres 10/21), Glen Keane's Over the Moon (premieres 10/23), and maybe, if the right rumors hold, David Finc…
 
Here's the headline, in our interview with Josh Ruben writer/director/star of the new feature SCARE ME, Rob is 95% sure Josh tells him he's good looking. To be sure, you'll need to listen for yourself. For added hilarity, you can see the live reaction when Rob *thinks* that Josh tells him he's good looking. Imagine when Charlie sees that he's found…
 
Our next podcast topic comes to us courtesy of Patreon subscriber Martha, who wants us to help shed some light on one of the film industry's most notorious shortcomings: the challenges facing women who want to direct movies at every level, from thorny little indies to massive blockbusters (such as Wonder Woman 1984, helmed by Patty Jenkins, which w…
 
Spontaneous will have you simultaneously contemplating your own mortality and igniting your need to seize the day [Interview with writer/director Brian Duffield ] Director Brian Duffield talks about how he keeps a positive vibe on set, his experience working with the A-Team cast of Katherine Langford, Piper Perabo, Hayley Law and Charlie Plummer an…
 
Our next podcast topic comes to us courtesy of Patreon subscriber Travis, who has given us a prompt as direct as it is merciless: name our picks for the worst films of the 1990s. It was in some ways a magnificent decade for terrible films, perhaps the last time when truly godawful boondoggles could still sneak their way through the studio system, w…
 
It was a very special week in the lives of your humble podcast hosts - Carrie and Rob are celebrating their tenth wedding anniversary! So that you can join in the festivities, we've decided to make this episode all about the best, most stable, most loving, and all-around enviable marriages in cinema. We're looking at our Top 5 married couples in th…
 
Bombardier Blood follows the journey of man with a severe bleeding disorder, determined to summit the world's highest 7 mountains [Interview with Chris Bombardier and documentarian Patrick James Lynch] Chris Bombardier talks about the motivation behind risking his life in the making of Bombardier Blood, how his family supported him and how he conti…
 
If you're anything like us, the months and months of endless quarantining might have you contemplating taking an axe to the people you've been stuck inside with. If only for a chance to do something new for a change. Fortunately, we have a good way too let off some of that steam: a whole bunch of violent slasher movies. By request of Patreon subscr…
 
I Used To Go Here is deeply personal for anybody who has struggled with defining and redefining their personal success [Interview with director Kris Rey] Director Kris Rey talks about her own life experiences that inspired the events of her most recent feature film, I Used To Go Here. Kris talks about how she wrangled the all-star cast of Gillian J…
 
1BR Probably Shouldn't Have Been Made [Interview with writer/director/cast] Director David Mamor talks about how this edgy horror/cult-thriller was born of his experience moving to LA, Naomi Grossman gushes over the entire cast (totally neglecting her own awesome performance) and Producer Alok Mishra has us all in tears with his super descriptive s…
 
Acting is very hard work even for people who've spent their whole lives honing their craft; it must be unimaginably hard when the whole life in question doesn't span an entire decade. That's why we're using our next episode to celebrate our favorite performances by children: the young actors who go on to become great stars, the one who fizzle out o…
 
There are some movies that are so great that you make them treasured friends, revisiting them every now and then to appreciate once again how special they are. There are some movies that you obsessively watch over and over again, trying to absorb them right into your soul. And then there are the movies so great that you simply can't go back: one ti…
 
We're turning our attention to movie stars for our next episode - specifically, to movie stars right at the beginning of their stardom. We're looking at our all-time favorite acting debuts, the very best performances by new actors who manage to prove in their very first time in front of a camera that they have what it takes to hold our attention, t…
 
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 cel…
 
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 da…
 
Sometimes - when you're feeling a bit gloomy, for example, or when you've locked your doors against the onslaught of a global pandemic - you just need to have fun. And sometimes, that fun is pretty disreputable and embarrassing, but do you care? No! Well... maybe just a little. And that's what makes a guilty pleasure: a film that you're almost not …
 
We had such a good time re-watching Back to the Future that we've decided to keep the fun going with a whole episode dedicated to our favorite examples of time travel in the movie. Whether it's killer robots from the future, accidentally screwing up the past, or just going on a tour of whatever costume drama sets the producer could get for cheap, w…
 
It's time for one of our favorite annual traditions, the summer preview episode! We always love to try to predict what upcoming releases we're going to enjoy the most, out of all the big summer tentpoles and smaller counter-programming. Unfortunately, with no movies coming out until July (at best!), it would be a pretty thin episode. But just becau…
 
Looking at the world outside our windows - certainly not visiting it- what could be better than watching a movie about the swirling paranoia of a world that is on the brink of collapse and there's nothing you can do about it? Certainly nothing we can think of which is why this episode is about the 2001 cult classic Donnie Darko, by request of Patre…
 
There are a lot of ways you can ride out a pandemic. You can gather all of your beautiful rich friends, hole up in a villa outside of Florence, and tell dirty stories to each other for ten straight days. Or you can throw a lavish party with several color-coded rooms that represent the decaying, corrupted soul of the age. Maybe you can keep a diary …
 
Between A Quiet Place: Part II depicting how humanity might look after civilization has been destroyed by blind, man-eating aliens, and COVID-19 preventing us from going out to the movie theaters to see it (EDIT: In a much more direct way than I had initially meant, as it turns out), it's an exciting time for fans of apocalypses. To celebrate - or …
