    Yep, thoroughly enjoyable and a fine ending to the series. The 3rd season ending was good as a season ended, just sucked as a series ender. I was so glad to see them finally bring closure to the series.
    I had actually expected some nod to Cy’s passing but other than the sign over the Bella Union there was none. Otherwise is was great welcoming that fine cast back into my home.

    They snuck Garret Dillahunt in!!! Awesome.

    I thought it was touchingly poignant. Trixie and Al final scene I teared up.

    McShane turned Swearingen in to top 5 TV character of all time. Emmy nod for sure.

    This was everything GoT wasn't imo. A totally satisfying albeit flawed capstone to the show. The somewhat contrived plot was simply a vehicle to reintroduce us to these wonderfully well written and performed characters and exquisite dialogue. Loved it.

    The only thing missing was the foreboding sense of menace that was constantly lurking just beneath the surface of the series, always threatening to explode through the Shakespearean facade...

    I guess it's hard to have a final resolution when the bad guy is a historical figure.

    I recently re-watched the series. I thought this movie did not measure up. It was just OK.

    Overall, I enjoyed this. But the flashbacks felt kind of weird. I get why they were there, because I had forgotten a lot of what happened in the series. They just were jarring. So mixed feelings about that.

    Also, it didn't really feel like an ending to me. But I doubt there's more to come.

    I did a marathon watch a few months ago and then watched the last 3 eps the night before...I enjoyed the movie a lot and thought it was an excellent way to end it.

    The 3-minute recap was horrible. My wife didn't like the movie as much and I think it was mostly because she didn't remember a lot of the history (for example, she didn't remember anything about Jen and why she was killed!).

    As endings go, you really can't top Al furiously brushing the blood off the floor and saying "wants me to tell him something pretty"; but I liked this one as well :D

    Liked it but thought it was a little fan-servicey. And I also found the "flashbacks" annoying.

    Felt the same way about how the "Serenity" movie capped the "Firefly" series. About as good an ending that can be hoped for- but still sad that it's still an end.

    At the end when Bullock takes Hurst outside, right after Jane rants and the first bottle is thrown at Hurst, that's him. :D

    I liked it, had the same vibe to me, only everyone was looking much older! I sat and watched the last episode before the movie so I could remember what happened (it helped a LOT), and my son who never watched the series before says to me "What is this, Sheakespeare?" I thought that was perfect.

    On a side note, I'm too lazy to look it up, but is the Bullock running for President related to Seth in some way? Both from same part of the country, albeit different states.

    Just finished binging the show yesterday and got to watch the movie tonight. It was fun to google up the real people and note the differences.

    I expected more from E.B. since he witnessed essentially a confession between Hearst and the muscle. Anybody recognize Patrick Swayze’s brother as the muscle that got shot.

    Jane in real life actually got married and had a kid which she gave away.
    When she died they buried her next to Hickok not because they were great friends but because the people that did it wanted to stick it to wild bill because he wanted nothing to do with her.

    Was there any statement on the time elapsed between the series finale and the movie other than the dozen or so years we experienced?

    Right near the beginning, when Charlie Utter met Alma and Sophia as they were getting off the train, he made a comment about how 10 years had gone by in a snap, or something like that. That was the only mention of the time interval that I picked up on.

    Enjoyed the movie. There was a lot I forgot from the series. I may watch the series again.

    There is an on-screen statement, about 2 minutes into the movie:

    SOUTH DAKOTA
    Statehood Celebration
    1889

    ...although that only works if you know when the original series took place!

    The HBO Now description says the characters reunite after a decade for the SD statehood celebration.

    Doesn't Jane also mention 10 years gone as she does her opening monologue on the horse outside of town?

    Was that a monologue?

    Or a soliloquy?

    :D
