El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

Post by RickOShea » Fri Oct 11, 2019 4:14 pm

Now available on Netflix.

Would've been nice as a four or five episode mini-series, but not bad for a two hour movie.

One of the greatest things about Breaking Bad is that they ended it. They told the story and didn't try to run it into the ground, unlike a certain zombie show on the same network. I was skeptical about Better Call Saul, but I've been impressed. It could stand on it's own. I hope I'm as impressed with this movie.

I started it. Good so far. I'm sure I'll like it, the acting and story has always been to notch so they'll have to try to screw it up

Anyone that was unhappy with the abrupt ending to the Pinkman story gets to find out how his story really ends. Given the rather realistic way the series tends to tie things up for characters I was a bit surprised by the way in which his story ended. I guess it had to end that way for somebody.

It was a good watch, not a bad story, just not as good as the original series.

My biggest complaint about the film is that Jesse Plemmons has obviously aged and gained a bit of weight. This was distracting and took away a little from his scenes.

Haha I was laughing about how they filmed around it... Weird angles and items blocking him. Reminds me of Austin Powers when they hid nudity

The series was always noted for the handy camera work they did that helped tell the story. I did enjoy the camera work on the scene by the water. That was classic Vince Gilligan right there that helped tell the story in unique and not so subtle way.

I need to go watch Battle Creek. I quit watching network TV years ago and the series came and went without me even aware it was out there.

A great coda to a great series.

Listening to Jessie recite his background as Mr. Driscoll got me thinking about how hard it is today to assume a false identity.

Then I did some poking around and learned about synthetic identity theft.
