There’s probably no way that movie endings will ever meet everyone’s expectations, and often you’ll complain about the choices a director made that resulted in ruining an otherwise great film — at least, in your opinion. But it turns out that some movies already have alternate endings that show an entirely different vision than what you saw in theaters. The following video shows you five such examples. More →
As one of the more iconic movies of the 1980s, Back to the Future undoubtedly holds a special place in the hearts of those who can remember watching it many decades ago. Impressively, and in contrast to a number of other iconic films from previous decades, Back to the Future still holds up today as a bonafide masterpiece of filmmaking.
Steven Spielberg, acclaimed by many as the greatest director of our time, apparently isn’t as big a fan of superhero movies as most. In a recent interview relayed by Entertainment Weekly, the man responsible for iconic hits like Jaws and Jurassic Park effectively said that current age of the superhero movie is nothing more than a passing fad destined to go away of the Western. Which is to say, it’s a niche genre without much staying power.
Earlier this week, we shared a video highlighting the ten most iconic movie endings of all time. Everyone remembers the reveal at the end of The Usual Suspects and the look that Dustin Hoffman had on his face at the end of The Graduate, but it’s just as important to give a good first impression as it is to leave a lasting impression.
Often described as “Netflix for pirates,” Popcorn Time users are now being targeted for infringement. Originally reported by TorrentFreak, the makers of a film called The Cobbler recently initiated a lawsuit against 11 Popcorn Time users in Oregon for copying and distributing the aforementioned film without authorization. The Cobbler, in case you’re unfamiliar, stars Adam Sandler and was released in early 2015 to tepid reviews.
Though no individual names are mentioned in the suit, the makers of the film list out the 11 John and Jane Does by their IP address alongside their ISP (in this case Comcast Cable) and the date and time they accessed the movie.
In the annals of film, there are a few movies forever cemented in our collective memories for delivering what can only be classified as jaw-dropping endings. Recently, WatchMojo compiled a list of the 10 most iconic movie endings in history.
I love going to the movies. When I was younger, I used to go to the nearest theater at least twice a month, being sure to stay current on the latest blockbusters. As ticket prices have gone up and the barrier to entry for streaming a movie online has decreased dramatically, my habits have changed, and now I’m lucky if I make it to the theater five times in a year.
Other than one surprisingly spectacular failure, it’s been a pretty great summer for movies. Age of Ultron put an explosive bow on the second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mad Max: Fury Road revitalized a franchise and Inside Out made us believe in Pixar magic again.
But now it’s time to look ahead to the fall, when some of the most anticipated movies of the decade are scheduled to hit theaters. More →
One of the more widely voiced complaints regarding online dating is that you never know who you’re truly talking to on the other end. The man who claims he’s fit and 6’1 tall may, in reality, be a portly 5’7 of a fellow. Or, even worse, perhaps the man you’re talking to co-opted the identity of Forrest Gump on his Tinder profile for a few laughs.
Sound crazy? Sure, but that’s exactly what one knucklehead decided to do recently.
Filmmaking is an imperfect science. There are innumerable factors to contend with, from the actors to the crew to the budget to the weather — it’s an endless maze that directors have to traverse from the moment production begins, which means that, inevitably, a few things are going to slip through the cracks.
