My boys and I love Minecraft, but paying to watch a documentary is just stupid. It would be much more advantageous to Mojang to offer this to some televised network and then free to all. For a company that has made the right moves on its limited capitalization of this very enjoyable product, now's not the time to get stupid greedy. This is my opinion, I do not fault anyone who is willing to pay for this. The documentary was most likely made without monetary compensation in mind, I just don't think it is worth it. It also lessens its worth by selling it in my eyes. Anyhoo I wish you all well and HAPPY HOLLIDAYS [img]http://static.minecraftforum.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]

This.

They actually put a free version of this video on torrents, the only difference is that the pirated version reminds the viewer that it's pirated once every 20-40 minutes, via a small scrolling text bar on the bottom.
I've watched it, and I can say: it's worth it. That fee feels like a charity now.

Pay for quality, people, if and only if you wish. It's fair.

I wish that Mojang would have a televised network (like Chancebozey said) and have top 10 worlds/servers.
...and a side helping of justice!

If THEY released it on thepiratebay, then it isn't pirated. If someone else did, then it is.

It's a bit of a kick in the face (and a lie) to be accused of pirating it. All the message had to say was if you wanted a version that doesn't have a scrolling reminder, just buy a copy that has it removed.

Anyway, anyone here who thinks they shouldn't have to pay are quite frankly stoopid. I can't even start to comprehend why they thought they wouldn't need to pay.

I forked out the 8 dollars and downloaded it this morning and watched it.  Sure, the non-paid is good.  I enjoyed that.  I enjoyed it enough I felt the 8 dollars was worth it.  Not all may feel so, it is not a fast paced high flying road racing kind of movie.

So, to talk about the documentary rather than the economics of it; It is a very slow paced story and didn't catch my 11 year old's attention to the end, but the half she watched she did enjoy.   I would say a single sit down viewing of essentially soft music and conversation for kids may be a tad much at an hour and forty-four minutes in length.  A few transitional scenes I would have edited down or out completely but :P I am not the editor on this.  I would have liked to know a few things not covered in this like; what did Notch and Jeb do as kids, what did they play and what do they play still today.  Or, why did they chose to do this game in Java and not say C# or a dozen other nuts-n-bolts kinds of things.

I did observe and wonder about one thing, that became clear by the end of the show.  Notch had the look more and more of a man on tired legs.  Like a person in the deep end of the pool and running out of energy.  It was not until he handed the role of lead developer to Jeb that he perked up and looked rested and refreshed and enthusiastic again.   Over this past year when my kids would tell me "Notch made it but he doesn't do it any more it is Jeb that took over" I would wondered "how come?", now I don't wonder.  A beautiful life a beautiful wife and I am sure in time he may come to understand us parents and kids ;)

What's with all the hate on documentaries? You'd pay more than $8 to watch the latest crap from Hollywood, why not help out the guys who put together a documentary about one of your favorites games?
