‘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

The biggest compliment one can pay El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is to say that it doesn’t detract from the legacy of one of the greatest television shows of all time. We knew we were in good hands with Vince Gilligan. Better Call Saul has proven that he, as a showrunner, knows how to play in the Breaking Bad sandbox again without destroying the castle he built before. Now, for the first time, Gilligan has stepped behind the camera as a movie director as he checks back in on the character of ...

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. And that was it, the End, finito, Felina, we were told; the ...

To Celebrate the Breaking Bad Movie, Domino’s Hid Pizzas on Rooftops in Brazil

When you think of Breaking Bad, you probably think of meth. But a close second is...well, harrowing moments of nihilistic violence, most likely. But a close third is that one time teacher-turned-druglord Walter White angrily tossed a whole pizza on the roof of his house. Understandably, Domino's Brazil has chosen to reference that last plot...

‘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...

Breaking Bad pop-up in Los Angeles

Ok, yeah, it’s cool there’s a Breaking Bad movie coming out next week and all. It’s no trip to Albuquerque, but it’ll be nice to get your Jesse Pinkman fix for the first time in six years. 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.

As the cult show’s wild-eyed crystal meth dealer, Aaron Paul became one of TV’s most unexpected anti-heroes. But then, as Rhik Samadder discovers, the actor is full of surprisesThe skinhead with crazy eyes opens a concealed hatch in the floor to reveal a chilling sight: stark concrete steps leading to an empty basement, bare walled, dimly lit.

The Only Thing More Brutal Than Last Night’s ‘Game of Thrones’ Was the Final Episode of ‘Veep’

On HBO last night, viewers watched in horror as a power-mad woman sold her soul and devastated a land she claimed to love in order to achieve maximum power at the expense of countless innocents. And there was also an episode of Game of Thrones where Daenerys Targaryen killed a bunch of people. What? Did you think I was talking about Westeros? Heavens, no. I was talking about the United States of America and Selina Meyer, the lead character of Veep, whose desperate attempt to reclaim her power r...

‘Cobra Kai’ Season 2 Spoiler Review: It’s No Mercy For Anyone in a Gripping Season

With its second season, Cobra Kai does two things most viewers might not expect from a straight-to-YouTube Karate Kid sequel: it delivers stakes as high as Game of Thrones’, and it establishes Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) as one of the most fascinating and complicated characters since the likes of Walter White. First: this is a spoiler review, so we’re going to get into some season-long reveals here. If you want a spoiler-free review, I wrote up the first two episodes out of SXSW here. F...

Giancarlo Esposito Believes Better Call Saul Will End After Season 6

Giancarlo Esposito believes Better Call Saul Will End after Season 6 According to Giancarlo Esposito, aka the villainous Gus Fring — maker of delicious chicken fingers, executer of criminal under lords, and Walter White’s greatest nemesis — the hit drama series Better Call Saul could possibly end after Season 6. 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. ...

Real restaurants from TV and movies

Restaurants, cafes, bakeries , bars, and the like are often a vital part of a story’s plot. Maybe it’s where a group of friends have coffee and spend time together or where two characters plan a murder. We all wish places like Central Perk from Friends existed or that we could visit The Three Broomsticks in Harry Potter for a Butterbeer. Unfortunately, while shows and movies use a myriad of filming locations all over the globe, not all of these are accessible — or even real — for fans to visit...

Solo Female Travel in Mexico — Is it Safe?

Is it safe for a woman to travel alone in Mexico? ABSOLUTELY. Mexico gets a undeserved bad reputation for travel, particularly in the United States. Much of this is due to the cable news environment with its exaggerated narratives that Mexico is full of drug cartels and murderous immigrants. This is not what Mexico is actually like. In fact, the real Mexico is so different that you’ll be stunned. My name is Kate and I write about solo female travel for a living. And I’ve spent a lot of time tra...
