Too Long; Didn’t Watch: Several Films Told in Just a Few Minutes

Too Long; Didn’t Watch: Several Films Told in Just a Few Minutes



An indie news website has a segment called TL;DW (Too Long; Didn’t Watch) that tells various film series in as short as just a couple of minutes. This show by Mashable did short videos explaining certain film series such as Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, X-Men, Star Wars, Mighty Ducks, and The Matrix. It also explained Game of Thrones in less than 3 minutes, and the box-office hit Guardians of the Galaxy in less than 2 minutes.

The videos are entertaining with a hint of mockery every now and then. Overall, if you don’t have time to watch each and every installment of these film series or TV series, or even just a single film, it might be fun to watch TL;DW.

Here are some of the most watched videos from TL;DW.
