    Just to warn you again, there might be spoilers in this thread, so if you haven't seen the movie yet, watch it first.

    What were your thoughts? Was it a satisfying end to the Breaking Bad saga?

    For me, that intro scene with Mike ohh that made me so happy and it also broke my heart, reminding me again of how the huge ego and poisoned rationality of Walt had him kill Mike, when he just simply could've gotten the list of names from Lydia.

    I for one, I'm totally satisfied. But watching the movie I didn't know whether to freaking hate or love Todd:Dthat was complicated. That scene when their driving out in the desert to bury a body, Todd singing while driving... Wtf:D

    And that letter to Brock, that made it a great closure for me. :)

    And also I love how Vince managed to keep this project so secret up until the end. That was AWESOME! Must've been really complicated in this day and age.

    I'm a Ford guy, so I prefer Rancheros. LOL

    I have been a ford guy but I think that Conquista was the tip top of style.

    Disappointed. The ending was not climatic. If it was the first story in a series it would be epic, but it is not.

    It also needed more el camino, less fiero.

    My dad had a Ranchero when we were kids. Or as we called it, the Rancheroo.

    We would go out for ice cream with half the neighborhood in the back having fun. Can’t do that any more...at least not in my USA PA area.

    Those were the good old days.

    Haven’t seen the movie yet. Hopefully soon.

    I thought it was really well made, great acting along with terriffic cinematography. Very clever, unusual camera angles, I love that stuff. Watched it on Netflix with my wife and visiting son last night. We were still talking about it today. A lot of unusual, unexpected crazy twists. I wasn’t into the original series much, but my son said he’s seen every episode, and went over the whole background with my wife and I before we watched the movie last night. For what it’s worth, he being a hardcore fan of the TV series, he enjoyed, and was very satisfied with the movie.

    We actually just watched it tonight. It was great. And it reminded me that I totally forgot how the show ended.

    My Ranchero was a 63. 3 on the tree and a 170 straight six. It was a wonderful car/truck thing. Looked a lot like this one:

    Just finished the movie, and we both really liked it. As well done as anything Gilligan has done, it was both brutal and poetic. Also glad they put a cap on Walt’s fate, and a shout-out to hair and makeup for Jesse’s mercurial, time-defining look (I’m pretty sure they didn’t schedule shooting around Aaron Paul’s hair).

    We watched last night. Thought it was pretty good.
    Skinny Pete was a stand up guy.
    Did you see where Robert Forster (the vacuum cleaner guy) died Friday?

    I went in with low expectations and wound up enjoying it a lot. The twist kept me on the edge of my seat. The only thing that escaped me was that they didn't show how he got away from Todd. I know that part was in Breaking Bad but I'm drawing a blank.

    Yeah I read it about it today, it's sad. I heard it was brain cancer.

    He never did get away from Todd, he tried to escape a couple of times and they broke him down to pieces. At the end Walter came to his rescue, he killed everyone with that machine gun attached to his car. Todd got wounded and Jessie strangled him to death.

    I only saw the first 45 minutes so too early to form much of an opinion other than Todd got fat.

    Story seems good so far
