Typically, the How It Should Have Ended videos do exactly as they say on the label. But the problems with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 were apparently so numerous, the team had to rewrite not just the third act but practically the entire film.
Which, in the end, actually makes even less sense. If you keep Richard Parker from getting into that plane crash, or prevent Max Dillon from falling into that electric eel tank, then why would there still be a big power plant showdown at the climax?
No matter, though. It’s just fun watching the HISHE gang poke fun at the nonsensical movie logic that runs the entire film. And it’s even more fun watching them bring in some superpowered pals for Spidey. Watch How The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Should Have Ended after the jump.

Normally, I like the How it Should Have Ended series. They make smart points about movies while also being funny and respectful of the original material. These people don’t actually think these movie should end in a different way. It’s just a joke, and they put a ton of work into the product.
That balance is a little different when it comes to a Marvel movie. The whole, “Why don’t they call the Avengers?” angle is so played out that I was disappointed it became a big part of their latest video, How Captain America The Winter Soldier Should Have Ended. Of course, in reality, every one of these characters would call in reinforcements. But this isn’t reality. It’s a comic book story, and in a comic book that doesn’t happen. To say it should feels lazy.
On the other hand, they do make a fun point about Black Widow’s disguise technology and you get to see Batman and Superman grill Captain America and the Black Widow. Check out how Captain America: The Winter Soldier should have ended below. Read More »
The How It Should Have Ended videos are always well done. Insightful, funny, and professional looking. But they’ve taken things to a new level for The Lego Movie. They’ve emulated the animation overseen by directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller to create a video that not only looks exactly like it’s part of The Lego Movie, it points out some pretty interesting points. And, because it’s the Internet, it uses Superman and Batman to do so.

When it was first released, no one would have guessed Frozen would become the highest grossing animated film ever. Sure the reviews were solid and the music wonderful, but to some, it felt a tad off. The whole idea of Elsa “letting go” after being locked away like an animal gave the film a slightly off-putting feeling. At least to me.
If you don’t know what I mean, the team at How It Should Have Ended say it better than I ever could. They’ve created their latest video based on the hit film and it hilariously raises some big questions about the parents of Anna and Elsa. There might even be a cameo from a certain popular Marvel Comics series in there.

In 1999, anticipation was so high for George Lucas’ Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, many of us initially overlooked the film’s obvious problems. The awe and spectacle of seeing a new Star Wars film on the big screen outweighed the plot holes, terrible dialogue and awful characters. Years have passed, and now many viewers agree the movie is deeply flawed. But maybe, just maybe, it could have been fixed with a few quick changes. Enter the How It Should Have Ended team, which has created a funny new video centered around the film. Check it out below. Read More »
The colossal battle at the end of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel spawned an equally big massive debate earlier this summer. Would a character as perfect as Superman have allowed so much destruction when there was surely a way to avoid it? Most people say “No.” Others believe the film justifies it, but the guys from How It Should Have Ended have a different take entirely. One that’s both hilarious and almost maddeningly logical.

Since Iron Man 3 is currently the 5th most successful movie of all time, odds are you’ve seen it by now. If you haven’t, you probably should do that before clicking below and looking at the latest video from the How It Should Have Ended crew. The video makes several very funny points about Shane Black‘s Marvel blockbuster, but they’re all massive spoilers.
What’s ironic about this video is its greatest contribution to the Iron Man 3 discussion isn’t “How It Should Have Ended,” like the title says. It’s how a few bumps along the way could have been handled differently. Check it out below. Read More »
