    Yup. I caught that after.

    I stand by what I said though.

    My wife and I just watched the whole series for the first time. It's definitely one of my all time favorites (and I love the controversial ending too). I am beyond excited for this flick.

    He really looks like his dad. Will be interesting to see how they adapt from the episodic structure of the Sopranos into a movie like this.

    I also loved the ending. I thought it was pitch perfect.

    We as the audience lived a few moments with the pressure Tony was constantly under. Was the next person through the door going to be the end.

    It didn’t matter if that was Tony’s end or it was decades away. That’s the stress and anxiety Tony dealt with every moment.

    Put me firmly in the "The ending is phenomenal" camp as well.

    Gandolfini's son really does look remarkably like him.

    But he doesn't look like he has the makings of a varsity athlete.

    Vera Farmiga as Livia is a choice I wasn't expecting, but well, I love her since The Departed so why not.

    The trailer didn't sell me on it, but the show theme at the end awakened my nostalgia.

    No one's ever really gone!

    I'm curious if they're actually going to keep the show theme for the movie. Maybe an updated version of it.

    I'd imagine the theme probably won't be on it; it feels very "of the time" for the show and would be pretty wildly out of place in the actual film (used only in the trailer in the same way that the "A Sopranos Story" moniker was, to make sure people know what they're watching). But only time will tell, I guess.

    "A Sopranos Story" reminds me of something. @Ramza Why is he called Tony Soprano?

    I’m actually still trying to workshop if the joke is the standard “BECAUSE HE’S ALONE” or if it needs an update like “BECAUSE HE HAS A HIGH-PITCHED VOICE” so I’ll get back to you.

    He gots the last name, but young Soprano he ain’t got no first name. Is he into musical? Tony Award. Maybe the French Revolution? Marie Antoinette?

    that’s me workshopping it. Does it go too far from the Solo source?

    Like how in the trailer there’s lots of throw backs to the show

    Notably dickie drinking a whole bottle of booze early showing like his Chris did he also struggles with addiction

    It's been so long since I watched the show, but was Christopher's (Michael Imperiolli) father Tony's brother? I'd assume that character would play somewhat of a big role in the movie.

    No. The actual relationship between Tony and Christopher/Dickie (Christopher's father) is a bit messy, despite Tony referring to Christopher as his nephew through the show. Christopher is actually Carmella's cousin, once removed. So Dickie is actually Carmella's cousin.

    Looks like Dickie is absolutely going to be pivotal in the film. Especially since information provided in the show regarding Dickie's demise is... less than reliable.

    I am always late to the TV shows. I was late to watching Breaking Bad, and also Game of Thrones. I have never seen The Sopranos, and it is on my list. I don't know whether to watch this first, The Sons of Anarchy or Orange is New Black.
