I agree -- I wish they would have dwelled longer on slightly fewer clips. Funny and true about the ADD generation. They had a lot of special effects ground to cover, too.

The great leaps that filmmakers have made in effects are impressive. At the same time, it's a little sad that young movie viewers are used to the highest quality. My kids have a hard time suspending their disbelief long enough to really enjoy older movies for what they are.
