‘El Camino’ Had Two Alternate Endings and the Original Cut Ran Three Hours

When Aaron Paul‘s long-suffering Jesse Pinkman crashed a stolen El Camino through the fences of the white supremacist compound where he had been kept enslaved in the explosive Breaking Bad finale in 2013, his fate was left on an ecstatic but ambiguous note. Six years later, we find out the aftermath of Jesse’s escape from the neo-Nazis who had tortured him in this weekend’s El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. And while the film offers a more decisive fate for Walter White’s former partner, writer-...

‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie’ Spoiler Review: Getting the Band Back Together for a Gunslinging Netflix Coda

Aaron Paul breaks down 'El Camino,' surprise reunions, and if he'll play Jesse again

Warning: This post contains spoilers for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. Jesse Pinkman rides again, figuratively and literally. When the wandering-wasteoid-turned-meth-maker-turned-broken-prisoner drove through the Nazi compound gates with a scream-laugh-cry for the ages, leaving behind Walter White to keel over beside his beloved machinery, it marked the conclusion of Breaking Bad, one of TV's most intense and celebrated dramas.

‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie’ Review: Well-Executed, But Unnecessary

Almost a decade ago, the ABC drama Lost came to a controversial conclusion, managing to bother more people than it pleased with a series finale that’s still being misinterpreted. A few months later, the final season was released on DVD with a 12-minute epilogue film titled “The New Man in Charge.” In the epilogue, we learned more about the futures and fates of a few members of the show’s vast ensemble. It didn’t resolve the finale’s frustrations, but was a pleasant capper to the genre-bend...

‘El Camino’ Early Buzz: Jesse Pinkman Gets the Ending He Deserves, To Mixed Results

When we last saw Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman, inarguably the most tragic character in Breaking Bad‘s Shakespearean tragedy, he had escaped from Walter White’s massacre of the neo-Nazis that had held him captive — free, feral, and driving onto the open road in an El Camino. It was the closest thing to a happy ending that creator Vince Gilligan could give one of his characters. Now El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie fills in what happens after in an epilogue that, according to critics, gives Jesse t...

And though El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will immerse us back into the sinister world we fell in love with in the late-2000s, it won’t put us smack in the middle of the show the way, say, a themed pop-up bar might.

Considering where we left off with Saul at the end of Season 4, it makes sense that two more seasons would properly close the arc of everyone’s favorite crooked lawyer. ...

Movie Mixtape: 6 Movies to See After You See ‘Glass’

The first act of The Incredibles is still the fairest portrayal of what superhero home life would look like. The flurry of domestic bliss and panic mirrors a lot of families with young children, but there’s an additional anxious hum to the rhythm of their lives. That fear of being caught, of suppressing who they are for the “greater good” of a fearful, misinformed larger society imbues every choice they make. Yet it’s only one family. One view on what it might be like for a very small group of ...
