An informative Documentary
17 February 2013 | by LordElronddSee all my reviews

A very good movie for a all technology lovers and certainly all of the Minecraft fans (such as myself) will enjoy this film.

We get to learn about the Minecraft creators and their story and how they got here. did they really expect this amount of love and attraction around the game or not.

one interesting point of this movie was Notch. I personally could not believe how humble and normal he was. as he said himself , he makes games of the sake of games and because it is what he enjoys doing.

he decided to create 'Mojan'. because Minecraft was getting too big and a company to represent was needed. we see how that happens, and what people are hired to help expand the game.

Notch was able to create a game in his spare time and went on and became one of the greatest and most popular games ever made. and the fact that people can't decide between Minecraft and super Mario shows that. I'd personally pick Minecraft.

the movie shows how Minecraft takes a role in education. and how kids (and adults) can learn to create things using Minecraft. that was quite interesting for me because I was not aware that this was happening.

we also get to see amazing maps and locations that has been created by users and feel all the love and excitement around the game. A great film if you are a Minecraft fan; or just a fan of being creative! 8/10
