Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

With the 14-month freeze at the North American box office starting to melt over the last few weeks, and looking to melt even more over the next few weeks, the Alternate Ending crew thought this would be a great time to celebrate the theatrical experience. Our next episode is dedicated to our picks for the top 5 movies to see on the big screen, the kind of film where watching it even on your fancy 4K home theater rig just isn’t enough, whether because of the sheer scale of the images, the need for a raucous, enthusiastic crowd, or the chance to give strangers handjobs in the dark.

In Worth Mentioning we cover Stowaway, Things Heard & Seen, and The Kid Detective.
