I came to the party late on the Breaking Bad phenomenon. I loved Sons of Anarchy with it's gritty realism and tragic hero. I still love Animal Kingdom. The latter being, in my opinion the best show currently run. Too bad that it would be almost impossible to edit...

The person who eventually turned me on to Breaking Bad had lost all credibility with me in regard to her taste in television series. She force fed me far too many episodes of Downton Abbey. Seriously, it was almost a requirement to spend time with her. Absolutely inhumane.

So...when she recommended Breaking Bad because her cousin said that it was "my kind of show", you can imagine my reaction.

That all changed when my brother recommended it, as well. He hates television and told me about how addicted he was to the gritty realism. I bought season one right then. I binge watched the entire season in one watch. Definitely, love that show. I have since watched the entire run enough times to know it well enough to write the screenplay.

I had been away for quite a while unable to spend time on this forum. When I returned there was a plethora of new edits that grabbed my interest. It wasn't until I saw this edit nominated for an award that I realized that it was a movie version of the first season of Breaking Bad. I had to have it. I've watched it twice. The first time it flowed so seamlessly that I couldn't determine most of what was left on the "cutting room floor." It was over before I knew it. The second time, I was able to appreciate the assembly and narrative structure.

ItsonRandom made excellent choices in regard to what scenes to keep for this edit. Focusing on the dynamic between Walter and Jesse was a good move. It seemed flawless and felt like an action movie with a slight docudrama vibe.

The only thing I might have suggested would have been some more music in key places, but he took more of a purist approach which is admirable. Loved the intro and outro! I somehow missed the now infamous phantom credits. Twice.

This is an awesome edit that will deservedly sit beside my Breaking Bad Collection. Oh, and my brother and that girl? He loved it and was in awe that someone would do such a thing. The girl? Well...it's not Downton Abbey, is it?

Excellent edit deserving the award! Congratulations!

Now...where's the REST?

To summarize: i loved the narrative you put together. The story flowed well. Great thoughts.

Here and there i would’ve insert some more scenes e.g. the planning for the break in to get the methylene and the first observation of the compound. Walter son is a sidekick, thats unfortunate, the connection between these two isn’t existent in this cut. Especially the moment where he stands up for him in the store. This would have also worked great as a stepping stone for his growing self-confidence since he started cooking meth and ultimately walking into the house of tuco salamanca and gets his money.
- the custom break in scene with the music from a later season didn’t work for me.
- Absolutely loved the ending music from radiohead. Perfect fit!

Minor thing: as mentioned the credits that got displayed when walter visited in his RV after getting his money back from tuco. That took me really out of it.

Audiowise: as mentioned before, the music is often louder than the dialog. i had to adjust the volume several times on my speaker system.

Right on, that was great! And I love the radiohead end, love that band.

I really hope you're planning on doing all the series, because that was a great way to watch - I watch the original and I am not sure an outsider would keep up, but as much as I love the series, sometimes I'd like to relive the series but in shorter, more digestible portions - two hour movie of each season is great, and this was done well!

Thank you!

S1 of Breaking Bad is a fairly slow (but enjoyable) grind that sets the scene for future seasons. This film edit somehow manages to capture that same feeling, despite being just over a third of the length. It doesn't try to cram every plot point, but rather chooses scenes very intelligently. Not every scene is a "happening", time is given for character development and to set the mood of the show. Cutting this down to less than 2 hours yet retaining the main plot, pace and feel of the show so clearly is very impressive.

The A/V editing was top notch, my only complaint was that the music was a little loud once or twice.

A lot of side characters, along with the more hated parts of Breaking Bad (the constant nagging and arguing comes to mind) have been cut. This really allows viewers to enjoy the show central plot and characters more.

This was an incredibly enjoyable edit of one of my favourite shows, and will definitely be my go-to on rewatches. The only problem is that now I'll have to wait for IOR to make S2, which I very much look forward to.

And that's not even mentioning the sublime intro and outro credits. It's clear that a lot of time and effort went into every part of this edit, it has a real high-quality feel to it.
