I enjoyed it, was not blown away by it but felt they did a good job wrapping up the story with the two hours they had. IIRC this was originally going to be a two or three part movie so they really had little time to get the story concluded.

Yes, it was a little strange to see everyone so much older looking but you have to remember this show debuted in 2004! That’s a long time since then, and I liked how they set it 10 years after we last saw them in 1879.

My favorite scene was EB Farnum shouting with wonder into that newfangled one telephone the town had now in 1889. Big Grin

For it to make much sense or have any weight, I'd say yes.

Yes. You have to know the backstories of the main characters, especially Swearengen, Bullock and Hearst.

This would be a good time to watch the original series, then watch the movie. There are 36 episodes over 3 seasons.

I agree, and what a great viewing experience that will be. Start from the beginning via HBO Go or other outlets that are carrying the original series.

There was an appearance, and I may be wrong, of the actor who shot Wild Bill placed in the crowded scene where the town folk are beating the Senator. He was bearded and I could have sworn he was in the crowd. Just wondering if I was the only one to spot him. If I remember correctly the joker who murdered Wild Bill was shot a few years later IRL.

That was Garett Dillahunt who played a random drunk in the crowd in the movie. In the series he was Jack McCall, the killer of Wild Bill, then brought back to play another character; Francis Wollcot.

Did anyone hear any reference to Cy Tolliver? A friend thought he heard him mentioned in passing in the movie but I didn’t catch it.

Joanie Stubbs briefly mentioned him while having a conversation with Jane in the stables.

Yep. Joanie Stubbs tells Calamity Jane he left her the Bella Union.

I found it interesting Silas Adams was left out.

Titus Welliver was busy with Bosch and couldnt commit to the film.

It was good, if not great. But solid.

I get the impression that Para lost interest in Deadwood, he used to talk it up quite a bit about how great a series it was but haven’t seen him discuss it in a while nor comment on any Deadwood movie thread.

Para, have you watched the movie yet?

As many others: good, not great. A bit contrived to get folks back together, but that's what it was all about...

Spoilers warning (in the linked articles) - if you haven't watched the movie.


David Milch's life took turns for the worst after Deadwood ended in 2006.

Some estimate Milch gambled away $100 million.

He owed the IRS $17 mil, had to sell homes, and his wife put him on a $40 per week budget.

https://www.hollywoodreporter....-100m-gambled-866184

Now at 74, Milch was diagnosed w Alzheimer's a year ago.

"Milch is here to watch, not interfere. He was a notorious micromanager during Deadwood’s original run, ordering reshoots if he didn’t like the way a scene was playing and dictating new dialogue from the sidelines for the cast to repeat. McShane has spoken of top-to-bottom rewrites being handed to actors just before the cameras rolled, the pages still hot from the copier."

Powers Boothe, who played Cy Tolliver, died in May 2017

My wife and I re-watched the series over the past few weeks, and then watched the movie last night.

The series made a few mistakes. First, the dialogue in the second season was way to flowery, making it difficult to understand what the characters were actually saying. Second, the big buildup at the end of the third season ended with a whimper, when everyone was expecting a big payoff. Of course, they couldn't have had a fight and killed a real-life character, which makes me think that Hearst shouldn't have even been the main antagonist in the third season.

The movie shouldn't have included Hearst at all, for the reason mentioned above. The first half was basically to show that all of the characters that we love (and hate - I'm looking at you, E.B.) were present and accounted for. The second half wrapped up the story, but still not in a satisfying way. Major characters in the series (Alma, Al) were secondary characters in the movie.

Secondary gripes: Dan looked out of place in his new outfit. What happened to Steve? What happened to Doc's tuberculosis? Why kill Charlie Utter, when the real-life Charlie Utter lived at least until 1910? What happened to Jack Langrish and his troupe (which I thought served no purpose in the series anyway)?

I don't know that they even needed an antagonist in the movie, because all they had to do was show what happened to the characters after the series had ended.

I'm not sure what they were actually trying to accomplish with the movie, but I was disappointed.




Phone's ringing, Dude.

Didn't care for it?

To much fan service in it? They really did try to shoehorn every character in there from the series.
