In the alternate, a pretty savy guy suddenly acts like a moron and gets himself killed. A great ending, I guess, if you're a Catholic and want everybody to pay for their sins, but (again, for me), it was
bullshit.
Agree 100% not sure why everyone thinks the theatrical ending is a "happy" ending. It was a bit on the sad side to me.

Exactly! (I'm sure some will think we're just a couple of emotional suckers, but ... )

3. I personally feel the EC with alternate ending is easily the best cut of the film. The extensions aren't all great (and I think one creates a minor continuity error), but the ending of the TC is terrible, IMO, and the original ending was the way to go.
Thanks! I appreciate your clarifying. It sounds like the digibook offers a better bang for the buck than the UCE, and a 2BD set probably should have been the model for the initial Blu-ray release.
If no kids see it, then it has no future.

TC: theatrical cut.

The alternate ending is reportedly closer to the ending of the book and the ending of the screenplay that got the film greenlit, so it is indeed the theatrical ending that is less "original" in the sense of "first." I could be misremembering what Affleck says on his commentary for it, but he basically says he changed it for commercial reasons.

Thanks, tyler. I remember hearing that there was a commentary track explanation (but I never listen to commentary tracks, so ... ). Anyway, I've got the DigiBook (the best choice) and have seen both versions - and, for the reasons I gave before, hate the "alternate/original (?)" ending - but it's good that it's available as a branching choice as many prefer it and thus we can each "choose our poison" as they say.
