I'm disappointed in the reception but that is to be expected as that was how people were with the original show. I thought the movie was great. The acting was fantastic. The music was great. As for the "bad SNL" sketches, it has the same episodic DNA as the show. The themes of determinism over free will using Oedipus Rex in a metaphor flew over most people's heads for the show and not much has changed 14 years on.For anyone wondering, DO NOT waste your time watching Many Saints.
It's just a series of bad SNL sketches based on a great tv show, with some scenes from Shaft interspersed in.
It's a shame they besmirched a piece of epic Americana with this steaming pile of waste.

Anyway, he never had the makings of a varsity athlete.
I'm disappointed that people are slow to appreciate the art. If you were there for the original shows finale, you might recall that it was polarizing but 14 years on its heralded as one of the most unique and mysterious television finales ever. I suspect the same will remain true for this movie, especially for those who have watched it more than once (I've already watched it 5 times to see what I missed).You're disappointed that people feel rightfully repulsed at this disjointed mess of a film? Some of the acting was fine, the rest was camp impressions.
Not calling the audience dumb. I'm sympathetic as to why most would feel the way they do as David Chase is infamous for intentionally frustrating his audience by subverting their expectations and using roundabout symbolism to carry thematic elements. I would encourage the audience to watch it more than once before they come to a hasty conclusion and I would encourage them to do the same with the original show as well. But if the Sopranos is not for them then it's not for them.Yeah, the dumb audience missed all the Freudianism and Oedipal references... I mean, the main character only killed his father something like 20 min into the movie so he could sleep with his mother, and Tony's mom was made up with prosthetics to look like his WIFE on the show.
I think this snark is beneath you. Correct me if I'm wrong.It was really really subtle, and only you appreciated it, lol.
