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. Ro… Continue Reading >>

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, the film-school dropout, has seen an absurd amount of movies, and if we’re being honest, rounds out our Fight Club fan-base. Tim Brayton, our seasoned film critic, shares a more critical view of film, an appreciation for vintage cinema and perhaps limited-release movies that we might otherwise miss. Carrie, our casual movie-goer, reminds us all that cinema is in fact supposed to be fun and entertaining and that sometimes, just sometimes, happy endings are good.

Top 5 Aliens This week's episode is coming to you a week late, and for that we apologize. Though, fiesty-ness levels are high due to lack of sleep and new-phone-setup drama, so maybe we're not sorry. From just plain defining "aliens" to just generally attacking each other for our alien preferences, the episode gets a little snappy. But we'll let you decide, are Avatar's really aliens? Is Yoda just a really old human? We ask you decide, but there is really only one answer to all these questions. Tune in!

Bride of AE - Pontypool (2008) Zombie month has officially risen from the grave, and we’re starting with a resolutely peculiar entry, the 2008 Canadian indie PONTYPOOL! Tim and Brennan break down whether or not the core conceit makes sense and if that matters, as well as discussing the subjectivity of horror and following up on a bit of tangential Elvira material!   Love the Podcast?

Top 5 Patriotic Movies Between that and the gung-ho feature length military advertisement Top Gun: Maverick continuing its jaw-dropping run at the box office (and secondarily, US Independence Day), it seemed like a perfect time to take a look at the long history of movies designed in part, or in full, to celebrate the love of Queen and Country, give or take the Queen. We'll be bringing you our Top 5 patriotic movies, with celebrations of national pride from the U.S. and around the globe (Tim does love his Japanese WWII propaganda films), those films that make you want to stand up and sing the bits of the national anthem that you actually know the words to. Come wave a flag with us, we're not choosy about which one. Tune in!

Pass the Popcorn: Lightyear (Spoiler Free) With Rob down for the count with COVID, Tim and Brennan nowhere to be found, Carrie turns to the only other cinephiles she knows...Abbi and Alice. Listen to this surprisingly insightful and thoroughly entertaining discussion of Lightyear to see why Tim has it wrong. Also discussed is a little inside information about an upcoming fantasy movie in the works directed by Ben Affleck. ***************************************************************** Love the Podcast? Leave us a review!
