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, 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 podcast 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.

Movies and hilarity

I've been a long time reader of Tim Brayton's reviews, and followed him to Alternate Ending. And he's great on it.

But the surprise was Rob and Carrie. Carrie bring pleasant anarchy and it's always funny, and Rob keeps everything moving and on track, and often deftly plays straight man to both his cohorts (I meant co-hosts but I like the autocorrect)

“A Feel Good Podcast for the Ages”

This could be a podcast about the History and Culture of Beans on the Iberian Peninsula and I’d still listen every week! The true draw of this podcast is the incredible chemistry of its three hosts! The dynamic naturally created by their differing personalities and tastes is truly captivating.

Good content. Needs sound editing

I wanted to give it five stars, but it’s a massive misohphonia trigger. As soon as they started introducing a third person they must have changed mics or something because there was so much lip smacking, gulping and wet mouth noises I had to stop listening.
