Default Re: Last season of the Sopranos!

That's partly the way I look at it Tony. The ones who jumped on three or four seasons in then they might be content with the final episode. Me personally, it was a huge let down. Like I've said before, I've heard all the "well, it's cinematic art" bullshit. If I wanted that I would watch the Sundance Channel. Entertain me. I don't buy HBO to watch the likes of Bill Maher. Many felt the show lost it's edge and it's roots after season four, I'm one of those fans.

If I wanted "cinematic expression and art" reach arounds I would watch Logo or Sundance. Give me a break. Chase left himself open to make more money on a movie which I can easily see occuring in the future. Eitherway, there alot of hardcore, long time watching fans who are not happy with the ending. Plain and simple.

The Onion figures out where the disappointment with the ending for some fans surely is heading

"Eight years of my life, and a fu****g artsy cut to black? It was eating me up inside."

personally i thought the end of SCARFACE was "cinematic art".

if sopranos went down the way of "sex in the city" or "6 feet under" fans should feel robbed.

i think the writing was kind of a copout that you see alot in hollywood these days. that movie "my ex girlfiend is a superhero (or whatever) is a perfect example.

a plot starts out rather decent and then the writer realizes he has to wrap it up quicker than he intended. the result is usually crap.

atleast tarantino didnt make the same mistake with the "kill bill" series. a great story coulda been ruined if it were all crammed into 2 hours. some stories need their just due.

That's the thing with Chase. He didn't have wrap it up quick. HBO actually made Mr. Big Time director add on more episodes during the last season. He had the time to wrap it up however he wished. He's now Scorsese.
