El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie opens with a flashback. Jesse and Mike standing in the very spot where Mike is soon destined to die after being shot by Walter White in one the shows biggest, “god damn it Walter” moments. There is no score and the sounds and atmosphere is all New Mexico. It’s beautiful. It’s quiet. The scene carries a weight that extends out of … Continue reading El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Review-A Storytelling Gift
Just stop… please. I’m not sure how much more I can take. Before 2019 I used to believe I was a strong man. An emotional man? Yes, but strong within that emotion. I had resolve. I had strength. A support system. Coping mechanisms. And now… now, I’m just a puddle. An emotionally drained pile of goo that just wants to twirl down the drain so … Continue reading 2019 and the Great Lack of Care of My Emotions
It’s been six years since we watched Jesse Pinkman hop in that el Camino, burst through that chain link fence as if the devil was chasing him, putting Walter White in his rearview and looking for some semblance of freedom., At the very least, a life where he wouldn’t be the meth chef captive of a group of neo-Nazis. Freedom is such a tricky word … Continue reading On the Road With El Camino- Five Questions
From a pop culture emotional standpoint, I’m pretty drained. It’s been a hell of a year and I’m not entirely sure what else I have to give. I’m spent. I’ve shed my tears… a lot of them. I focused so much of my emotions during the first half of the year on Avengers Endgame that I wonder what else I possibly have to give. There have … Continue reading On the Road With El Camino- A Person of Interest
It’s hard to believe that we’re only less than a month away from El Camino: A Breaking Bad movie. We’ve gone from wondering if this film was even needed to the possibility that this could be the greatest thing to ever happen to Netflix… and perhaps me. On a television/story lover scale. I can not downplay the importance of Breaking Bad to my own personal television pantheon and passion … Continue reading On The Road With El Camino- The One Scene You MUST Watch

Pumpkin themed everything has already made itself known and the summer box office has all but closed down for the season. We’re now left to shift gears. From jeans to shorts. From iced tea to pumpkin spice. From baseball to football. This back half … Continue reading Did Breaking Bad Steal Disney’s Thunder?
The internet is a fun and interesting place… most times. When it’s not being a toxic sewer attempting to damn your soul. Although, I tend to stay away from those areas. Sure, it’s on Twitter but I don’t engage. Like, I see it but move on. I try to focus on the positive fun side of the internet… yes, such a thing exists and no, … Continue reading Do We Need A Breaking Bad Movie?
Geeklings, I like to believe that I stay pretty “up” on pop culture related news. I’m constantly on the interwebs reading articles, Tweets, or Instagrams getting all the scoops on things that have my interest, and after three years here at I Am Geek you should know that’s a pretty big list. So you can imagine my surprise when I hopped on the Twitter for a … Continue reading Emmy Nominations Were This Week… & I Had No Clue
