I love videogames, which probably explains why I’m glued to my computer screen during E3 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo) going on this week.

And yet, sometimes video game endings just never live up to their expectations. Others do, like Bioshock, but Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 does not.

But, what if you could change the ending? What if you could remake it how it should have ended?

That is what the website, HowItShouldHaveEnded.com did, and I must say, it is fantastic! If you enjoyed the game, but thought the ending could use a dash more dark humor and pokes at bizarre security at an airport, you’re in luck!

Check out the video below, and see what could have happened to¬†Alexei Borodi (aka U.S. Army Ranger Private First Class Joseph Allen), you’ll be glad you did.

How Thor Should Have Ended

I really enjoyed Marvel‘s latest film, Thor, and thought that the acting was well done, the effects were amazing and it really helped made a god look human.

And yet, the ending did seem a bit anti-climactic didn’t it?

Yes everything is made right in the world, but Asgard became irreparably damaged in the process of Thor saving the day. So, what if things happened a bit differently?

What if the final battle between Thor and his brother Loki never happened? What if Thor decided to just stay on Earth with Jane?

Much thanks to the fantastic website, HowItShouldHaveEnded.com, for showing us just how fantastic it could have been!

Check out the video embedded below. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

What Holiday Movie Characters Really Think

Movies that are themed around the holiday season are usually just a joy to watch, and can really help you get into the festive spirit.

But, what happens if characters from those movies had a chance to speak their minds about the shrine of commercialism that is Christmas?

The folks at HowItShouldHaveEnded.com decided to put on a little holiday treat for us all, by showing what the main characters of holiday movies (Like How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Rudolph the Read-Nosed Reindeer, The Nightmare Before Christmas, etc…) really think about the situations they found themselves in.

Check it out below, and enjoy!

I have a question: Did you enjoy the movie The Social Network?

I actually find it rather difficult to answer that question, as it was an interesting movie, but there really was no resolution at the end. That, combined with the very disjointed nature of the story, was fairly confusing. But, the performances were very well done, and learning about what Mark Zuckerberg did to make Facebook (however biased the story may be) was very interesting.

The folks at HowItShouldHaveEnded.com decided to clean up the story, streamline the narrative and make an ending that really sticks with you.

Believe me, if you’ve seen The Social Network, you should absolutely see this – it’s very, very well done!

How Saw Should Have Ended

The series of Saw movies have been a rather interesting experience to watch.

Don’t get me wrong, the first movie BLEW ME AWAY. I did not see the surprise ending coming (which doesn’t happen to me a lot), and it totally changed my perspective when I re-watched the movie. However, the newest addition to the Saw franchise (to be released next Friday), is entitled Saw 3D, the seventh movie in the series.

Honestly, it has become a tad tiresome. But, with the upcoming movie being the (hopeful) final movie in the series … I have hope that it will be just as good as the original.

But, what if the ending of Saw played out differently? What if the the events did not unfold the way they did in the movie?

As always, HowItShouldHaveEnded.com decided to show us. Check out below for how Saw should have ended and prevented all the silly sequels.

Empire

Once again, the amazing folks at HowItShouldHaveEnded.com have shown you how, if movies and televisions made perfect sense, how they really should have ended.

This time, they put their focus on The Empire Strikes Back, the second original Star Wars movie, which really did not tie up anything – just moved our heroes into different predicaments for Return of the Jedi.

I won’t spoil anything for you, but it is hilarious! And keep watching, even after it says “The End” … you’ll be glad you did.

How Inception Should Have Ended

Inception was an amazing movie that was, as many people have said, too complicated for its own good. There were dreams within dreams, dreams within a dream within dreams, and much more. Suffice to say, it did get a little ridiculous.

But, while you were watching it, the movie made it all seem possible – which is the mark of a good movie.

What if it didn’t need to be so complicated? The folks at Howitshouldhaveended.com decided to take that upon themselves and show exactly how Inception should have ended.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was bad. I mean really, really bad. I mean so bad that it does not even deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as the previous movies. Now, I know that Temple of Doom was not good, but I’d much rather watch that then the Crystal Skull – hands down.

Luckily, the good folks at HowItShouldHaveEnded.com have decided to show us a much, much better way that the latest iteration of the Indiana Jones franchise should have ended. Do you agree?

Enjoy the video!

Oh. And one more thing. To get all the jokes in the video, please do not see the movie again. Ever. Just use the Wikipedia page found here.

How Lost Really Should Have Really Ended

lost

I know what you are thinking – Why are we still talking about the TV show Lost?

Well, the reason is that it was a damn good show that got bad and then tried really, really hard to turn itself back around. And, amazingly, it did!

But, within its final season, it left a hell of a lot of things unanswered and fans are still clamoring at the bit for explanations.

Luckily, the folks at HowItShouldHaveEnded.com decided to help us out a bit and show what I consider to be the only way Lost could have truly ended … complete with 45 per cent more Lapidus, a catchy new theme song, and all your mysteries explained (well, not ALL, but some are resolved, like the Man in Black’s real name).

So sit back, relax and enjoy the video below the jump.
