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, ...

Around the world, the box office charts are being dominated by Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the latest example of Marvel Studios' habit of attempting to shake some of the dust off the formula of formulaic comic book superhero action movies by flavoring them with a little bit of genre.

The Top 5 Movies to See Before You Die, it's a catchphrase you've heard before. It's also a catchphrase that you assume has straightforward criteria. Movies critical to cinema?
