Breaking Bad: The Movie

Admittedly, I donít keep up with pop culture much, but how did I not know that a Breaking Bad movie was coming? Iím also surprised that given its popularity a thread hadnít already been started.

Hereís a nice summary for all the luddites like me that didnít know this was coming:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.new...455959%3famp=1

Hopefully they donít shit on their legacy.

Then why be so heavy-handed with re-establishing 'old Jesse'?

If I'm a person who is going to enjoy the character development and 'before/after' contrasts that El Camino was trying to establish, then I'm NOT a person that needs to be force-fed the beginning of Jesse's arc. I'm an involved fan that understands the character.

And if I'm NOT that kind of fan and I need to be re-immersed in the character, then I'm not gonna have much of an appreciation for where the character ended up.

In a lot of ways it was insulting. Trotting fat Todd out there and pretending like we wouldn't notice just to we can re-establish what we just spent 5 years fully understanding was ridiculous and a waste of my time. And acting like Jesse Pinkman 7 days after his release from captivity is some fully formed, fully reformed version of who he'll be for any appreciable of time is simply an insult to me as an adult, let alone a fan.

I understand that the whole thing was a send-off for Pinkman - so why spend half of it spinning your wheels on stuff we largely already knew unless it's A) mindless fan service (most likely) or B) a simple plot device to make up for staid writing when you can't figure out how to give Jesse a massive pile of money so you just plop him in Fat Todd's apartment and go from there.

Ultimately I think there was a chance to do what you hinted at - make it about Jesse's transformation. But there were only glimpses. Instead most of that WAS just "throwing some more BB shit at the wall for the sake of BB."

I guess weíll just have to agree to disagree.

It is certainly possible that Iím a simpleton but it worked for me.

I've been in a trap house and watched somebody on meth play Russian Roulette with an actual functioning revolver for a gram of dope. Now that I think about it I've seen other things that high dudes have done with guns that are even dumber. So, I can believe the shootout scene.

Yeah, that scene worked for me for that reason alone. Iíve seen people do things almost that ****ing stupid whilst high on some heavy ****.

Me too. And I can't believe how intrigued that minimal teaser just made me.

He was flown in the middle of shooting a movie production (for about 12 hours to film in a restaurant filled with people who were part of the film crew). I can forgive it.

Reasons this movie sucks:

1. Jessie/Paul just isn't a good enough actor to handle the load.
2. Jessie has to be the dumbest crook out there. How long does it take to get out of town?
3. Why pay a guy $250K to drive you to Alaska?
4. Are you serious this guy is not gonna let Jessie slide for the missing $1800 when he just handed him a sack full of cash?
5. Why does it take $125K to drive someone and get a passport? Mexicans pay less than $10K to their coyotes.
6. Why go take on 5 guys in a shootout when he had the upperhand on 2 earlier?
7. An old fashioned high noon shootout? Really?

Movie sucked.
I watched it last weekend, and I completely agree. I thought it was just about the slowest and most boring piece of shit I've seen in years. I'm glad to see someone else thinks the same thing.

Maybe my problem was that I decided to re-watch the last season of Breaking Bad before watching El Camino. As I was re-watching Breaking Bad, I kept saying over and over "I forgot how great this show really is!!".

Then I watched El Camino, and it literally put me to sleep. After the first hour, I was exhausted and went to bed. I had to finish watching it the following night.

It was slow and pointless. The last scene of Breaking Bad where Jesse drove off into the sunset was a thousand times better than this. Vince Gilligan should have left it at that.

El Camino was exactly like Season 8 of Game of Thrones: a total letdown.
