(Yes, I'm well aware this is several years old and many of you might have watched already. But it's new to me and maybe some other people haven't heard of it.)
Ever watch a movie and enjoy it a lot, yet be so disappointed with it?
Was terrific seeing all the pins, but the interviews with the designers and programmers were so brief. So much potential for an interesting documentary about PINBALL and instead this was, albeit hilariously entertaining, an episode of Hoarders: Pinball Edition. Or My Strange Addiction: Pinball Special.
Sat down to watch this with my kids to give them some insight to the history and evolution of pinball... and most of the time we were sitting there like OMG WHAT THE HECK???
I mean, really? The documentary HAD to waste time on middle age Waldo instead of Steve Ritchie and pinball machines? No way can I recommend this documentary to anyone as a serious doc on pinball. Can only recommend it in a train wreck, you gotta watch this, sort of way.
