From Modern Mythcraft to Magical Surrealism

Blog For A Beer – Alternate Endings

Welcome to Fantasy Friday! Every week, you are invited to write and post something to do with fantasy, science fiction, etc., right here in the comments.

This week and last a lot of bloggers and SF movie fans were stunned by the original ending to last year’s blockbuster I Am Legend starring Will Smith.

Do you think that this ending makes the movie better, or worse, or is it an unsaveable mess no matter what? What other movies have original or alternate endings that not only change the meaning of what came before but make the whole thing better? What movies need an ending like that? (And do you have the skills to write it up?) Enlighten us, dear readers.

At 5 p.m. PST today, if we’ve got at least ten participants, we’ll choose the day’s most entertaining writer and PayPal them $10 on the spot. Go start your weekend off with a cold one on us! (Minors, make that a couple of hot chocolates.)
