It was okay. Overstreet goes a little overboard on the significance of movies. Of course, he watches more movies in a week than I do in a year. So they're a bigger deal to him.

Made some good points, but mostly took himself--and his movies--too seriously. Like some wine or coffee connoisseur. It's not like it really makes any difference. Actually, his point is that watch we watch and how we watch it does make a difference--especially for people whose main source of art, literature, culture and even philosophy and religion come from the big screen.

For the rest of us, maybe less so.
