Why the new Star Wars trilogy is dead, and how it could have been better.

I didn't want to watch the entire 36 minute video, but his comments up to 9 minutes are dead on. 


Maybe this is beating a dead horse, since all the flaws of The Last Jedi have been pointed out ad nauseam by youtube posters.

I have commented on several videos that I think that it is possible for a movie to have many obvious flaws and still be entertaining.

Galaxy Song - Monty Python Live in O2 Arena.

I was going to write a Facebook post about how absurd it all seems to
me, that we live on a big rock, rotating at 1037 miles an hour (less
as you move away from the equator), going around the Sun at 67,000
MPH, and moving around the galaxy at unfathomable speed, and all of
this is like a grain of sand on the beach of an immense cosmic ocean
that is forever expanding at an ever accelerating rate.

However, this video expresses it much better:

The Star Wars Suite - The Danish National Symphony

I could listen to this for hours.

How Bill Gate Made Microsoft

Not sure if you would like this or not.  The documentary is about 18 years old.  So it is a little out of date.  Much of the information is available in other places.  Nevertheless, I found it pretty interesting, but these kinds of things always interest me.

​P.S.  The  movie "Take Shelter" is on its way from Netflix.​  I'm looking forward to seeing this.

The Rise and Fall of Peter Molyneux

This 4 and 1/2 part video is over 3 hours long.  Still, I found it very fascinating.  I just kept watching one part after another.


​It just shows how difficult the game business is.​

​I think that Peter Molyneux's problem is that he tried to design games while he wrote them.  He seemed to start games without a clear idea where he was going.​
