    We had a "Good Bye Breaking Bad" mini-party for the last episode (themed drinks & food), this weekend we're going to do a mini-party again for the movie. I'm excited!

    Midnight PST is what I heard. And that's what they did with Black Mirror, too, so that sounds right.

    I wasn't really happy when they announced the movie. I wasn't really excited when it was just a week away. Still watched it now. Aaaand... nothing, really. Not bad, not exceptionally good.

    Fun movie, a nice epilogue. Never doubted they would do something cool and never ever put the legacy at risk. And I was right, this is freaking cool.

    Just watch it and enjoy the ride, the easter eggs, the callbacks...

    Still think BB is the best TV series ever.

    I liked the film a lot, but it was essentially pointless.

    Not true.

    Spoiler: It is a continuation of the aftermath of Walter White and what the Nazi's put Jesse through, as well as a final send-off for the character. In the final episode of the TV show, the final shot is Jesse driving away in the El Camino screaming, where here the final shot is Jesse driving away happily into the Alaskan wilderness. El Camino was about Jesse moving past the trauma and FINALLY finding the freedom he's been searching for the entire series. I don't think that is very pointless

    I get all of that, but in the end we are left with a feeling that Jesse made it out. That was the whole point of the ending scene of Jesse driving away in the series finale. This film just explains what happened after that, but leaves you with the same feeling in the end. Again, I really enjoyed it and will likely watch it again whenever I rewatch the series, but for me it felt more like an epilogue to an already complete story, rather than its own thing, which is totally fine.

    See, I kinda disagree with that, because, at least for me, seeing Jesse driving away never meant that Jesse was free. It always felt, to me, that Jesse had just finally gotten free from THAT situation, but of course he wasn't free. You knew that the cops would be after him, you knew he'd have no place to go, you knew he'd be emotionally fucked up after literally everything that happened for the 5 seasons proceeding the end. So I would say that El Camino DID have a point, in that was able to naturally progress the final episode to a more thorough and fulfilling end.

    My girl and I watched it tonight and we both thought it was great. It felt like two episodes that could've closed out the final season. The way they left it off with Jesse escaping in the final episode left a lot of unanswered questions. To me, THIS is less of a movie and more of the proper ending to the series as to me this series was always about Walter AND Jesse. Walter's story felt complete whereas Jesse's did not... until now.

    Last night the wife and I watched El Camino. Did I like it? Yes. Do I think it was needed? Not necessarily.

    I enjoyed it as a whole, but it played out like two episodes meshed together than an actual movie.

    Glad to see Jesses story play out and glad we got closure. Good to see Cranston’s cameo along with Mike, Jane, Badger and Skinny Pete.

    Great cinematography by Gilligan.

    I woke up today with a slight twinge of mourning for Breaking Bad. Now, other than Better Call Saul, we may never see anything breaking bad related again.

    I thought it was alright. I was disappointed in it's absolute practicality. In a way, this is much more of an apocryphal story that fills in the blanks about Jesse and where his arc landed.

    The story sort of shots the bed in the second half. It stops being about Jesse's character growth. He physically literally escapes, but the movie cares less about his emotional journey, and so he neither escapes not recovers that way and we aren't made to care.

    Given how well the show ended i see this as a bit of a net negative.

    Enjoyed El Camino and I had really forgotten how great rhe cunematography was on BB. It did seem like Jesse's 180 from "beaten dog" to "man on a mission" was a bit rushed though.

    The movie lived up to my high hopes. I loved breaking bad so I was very happy about this movie. Not going to go into detail, but I would highly recommend watching it. 9/10

    I really liked it. In the closing episodes of BB, Walter got to wrap up his loose ends, now it was Jessie’s turn.

    I always questioned why it was never cut! That's awesome... Completely forgot about that scene in season 4.
