10 Terrific Films With Alternate Endings

With the birth of home video, filmmakers have been able to tinker with their vision. Here are ten examples, however, of where their original endings were changed before said movies were released.

Pop Gluttony

I am choosy about what I eat, but continue to chow down on an unfettered pop culture diet as the last great excess that won’t kill me.

Why I Dislike 'Rye': Not be-Holden to Salinger's 'Catcher'

'Catcher in the Rye' is a great novel, but it’s not good. When you're more Ferris Bueller than Holden Caulfield, it's hard to relate to his alienation -- no matter how much teachers want you to.

Sold Out: A Threevening With Kevin Smith

Alas, this is less about actually spending an evening with Smith, and more about him spending the coin made from that evening.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno

All the hubbub leads to a standard coupling, the regular boy wins the exceptional girl (because in the boy's mind, she is always exceptional, even if, in your mind, she's settling).

Accepting the Blame: The Top Guilty Pleasures of 2007

PopMatters proffers its collection of 2007's most notable defective faves. And it's okay to laugh. After all, we'd probably do the same to you and your uncomfortable fixations as well.

Reviews

Southland Tales

The very incoherence of Southland Tales is something like an argument, its many pieces and pronouncements a deconstructive challenge to world order.

Reviews

Catch and Release (2006)

That this film somehow managed to attract such an array of diverse talent, and was marketed as a feminine romantic comedy, will confound viewers to no end.

TMNT (2007)

The CGI allows the Turtles to have facial expressions, though here these mostly range from angsty to angstier.

Catch and Release (2006)

That this movie doesn’t find a way out of the morass of generic cliché and triviality isn't surprising, but it is disappointing.

The Pay Off: The Best Film of 2006

For many of the movies on PopMatters' 2006 list of the year's best films, it is clear that a heavy personal and professional stake was riding on the final product.

Reviews

An Evening With Kevin Smith 2 - Evening Harder (2006)

This DVD is good for some laughs, but perhaps slightly too complicit in its own limitations.

Clerks II (2006)

The point of Clerks, either number, is talk -- speedy, competitive, clever banter that recalls, in its profane way, the rhythms of old Ben Hecht comedies.

Reviews

Jersey Girl (2003)

Affleck and Smith talk lots about shooting details and feelings about their chosen fields, their mutual esteem and affection audible.

Jersey Girl (2003)

Early in Jersey Girl, Ben Affleck cries. It's a grim and alarming moment.
