I finally got around to watching "Tilt" last night. Just some observations and opinions:
1) Very well done documentary, enjoyed it
2) Loved seeing some of the big name designers being interviewed. I can just imagine what the early '90's was like at Williams when Gomez was saying that the designers could tell the CEO to "wait in the truck".
3) The history lesson alone would have made a good movie, for example the timeline of when flippers were added, the switch to SS electronics
4) I don't remember the PIN2000 machines making a big splash, but then again they were there and gone pretty much in a year. Many of the designers weren't 100% on board with the idea.
5) How incredibly short-sighted of Williams to not sell off the pinball division instead of just shuttering the doors
6) The Pin2000 machines haven't been collectables like the mid to late '90's pins. I wonder if that will change as they get older?
If you haven't seen the movie, seek it out. It's much better than "Special when lit" IMO.
