Amazon's advertainment movies really suck

Adland: 

Slate on Amazon.com's "Amazon Theatre" project that brought us short films with large amounts of product placement and clickable credits. Which might not be a bad idea if only the films didn't bite the big one.

I mean, they're really, really bad.

"Watching these films is time wasted. I did it so you don't have to. I urge any future producers of advertainment to heed this advice: If the content is not as compelling as a Dharma & Greg rerun, it should not see the light of day."

The films can still be seen here. But don't say I didn't warn you.

    You're so right. Even big budget directors like Tony Scott make a stupid movie with no point. What a waist of my bandwith (if I had any).
