Minari is emotionally honest and pleasurable to watch; while it would simply be a lie to suggest that this is in any way fresh, surprising, or challenging, its charms are extremely real and well-earned. #Minari
Our first interview at Sundance with the ever-so lovely @RealRobinWright, talking about her new movie @LandTheFilm. With the behind the scenes of figuring out what to call her, having the nervous poops and SO much more.
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 sites and 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.
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 place for people who can't get to the theater until the third week a film is out; a place for people who just want to find something great to stream online after the kids have gone to sleep, a place 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 place 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.
Join us for our weekly review of movies worth seeing, worth avoiding and our Top 5 lists – and don’t forget to play along at www.alternateending.com.

We LOVE Steve Zahn and Jillian Bell, because of course they're hilarious and wonderful. We were incredibly honored to get a chance to talk to them about their new film 'Cowboys,' the story of a young boy who comes out as trans and has to navigate the impact on his family and THEN it turns into a Father/Son Western and oh gosh, you're going to love it!
But if we're being honest, sliiiiiightly edging out the cool factor of Zahn and Bell was getting to chat with Sasha Knight about his experience being a part of the film as a young trans actor.
We were so impressed by the poise and polish of this young 10 year old, whose confidence is no doubt built on the foundation of his supportive parents.
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 favorite love scenes in movie history.
