Minecraft: The Story of Mojang

Although, as someone who has played a ton of Minecraft, I did enjoy watching this documentary about its creator(s). But the flim really is lacking. When it was all done, I didn't feel like I learned anything new about Minecraft, indy-game development or Notch himself. There's a sequence where Minecraft is being used in a classroom, but there is no effort to show why the game is so unique in that environment. It's just a bunch of kids and teachers telling us how much the kids like to play Minecraft in class. This lack of substance is pretty much how the entire documentary goes throughout the whole thing.
