    R.I.P. Robert Forrester
    When I first heard that there would be a Breaking Bad movie, I was cautiously optimistic.
    I was cautious because I didn't know if there was any justification to see anything following the finale of Breaking Bad, almost every character's arc was wrapped up perfectly and I didn't want anything to potentially tarnish.

    Not to discount the rest of the movie as it’s still very good, I just didn’t love it as much as the first act.
    All the performances are phenomenal, especially the two sisters.
    I like how the movie is an allegory for how despite…
