I have a contentious relationship with the How It Should Have Ended people, in that they don’t know and don’t care who I am, and I am mostly just annoyed at how they sometimes don’t stick to their one great gimmick. Thankfully, those folks go back to their gimmick in a great way with Avengers: Endgame!
Quality video. A nice reminder that they know what they’re doing. And it’s great to see them go all out for that “Avengers Assemble” scene!
Sometimes when I’m coming up with things to post on my blog, I collect a bunch of fun YouTube videos to save for a rainy day. Today is that day. So let’s run through a bunch of How It Should Have Ended videos!
First up is the one for Bumblebee, which is pretty fun! I enjoyed the movie, and this video is fun and clever with the absolute perfect ending. The girl totally should have stuck around with Bumblebee!
Pretty fun. Great voice work stuff in that one. But they should have pushed it one step further and had Hailee Steinfeld team up with Shia LeBeouf!
Anyway, here’s the one for Shazam! In which I start to notice a disturbing trend…
Is this “How It Should Have Ended” or is it “let’s just make a bunch of jokes”. They completely threw away their own premise! And it gets even worse with the one for Aladdin!
What is going on?! Granted, it’s an alternate ending to the movie, but really it’s just the creators riffing on a random plot thread from Aladdin. They do a perfectly fine Robin Williams impression, but it’s just a bunch of jokes about the Aladdin premise, not a bunch of clever alternate possibilities for the ending.
They’re losing track of their own selves!
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a true masterpiece and deservedly won that Oscar. So let’s poke some fun at it! Legitimately, at times, thanks to the How It Should Have Ended people!
Some good jokes there! Though if I can be that guy, a webline isn’t retractable, and Doc Ock needed time to repair the collider, which is why they couldn’t re-do the experiment that day. Though I did love the alternate reality Kingpin seeking revenge joke!
Also, if I haven’t made this clear enough, but I very much dislike the cafe tradition. Stop using your jokey versions of Batman and Superman as a crutch! You’re better than that! You’re funnier than that! Your Spider-Man jokes were great this episode!
Although I will admit the Into the Bat-Verse ending was pretty fun.
I am only one man. With one dinky little blog that I write purely as a hobby. And if you take nothing else away from my ramblings, know that I don’t like it when the How It Should Have Ended cartoons cut to their inane Batman/Superman cafe scenes.
It totally ruins an otherwise awesome Aquaman parody.
These animators have a great gimmick. They are often very funny. And the animation is killer. But stop shooting yourselves in the foot by making every superhero episode cut to Batman and Superman saying the same catch phrases over and over in a cafe! Especially stop making it the bulk of your gorram episode!
There I was, waiting to see how they planned to “really” end Aquaman…only for Batman to swoop in and make their jokes and ruin the moment. Not cool, people.
Unfortunately, the sequel to Jurassic World was not called The Lost Park: Jurassic World. The movie will never live that down. But how about also never living down the…
And the How It Should Have Ended:
In the end, we’ll all forget this movie until the next one comes out, then it will just serve as a middle movie that nobody particularly cares about in the end. Made a lot of money, though.
