This is good.
Being 24 years old, I've kind of outgrown the target audience of this flash, but in reality, I haven't. I've come to these conclusions some 10 years ago, but you've put it together in a very complete and concise way that is far better that I could have if asked these types of questions on the spot. In reality though, this is always the case. It goes from being clicks in school to economic, religious and political standings, which is just as bad. I don't think it'll ever get better, people as a whole are just too dumb.
I feel I should mention that Star Wars, video games, comic books, etc. IS the popular thing now. When I was about 16 or 17 these things started being made into movies by the dozens and popping up so much that if you WEREN'T a fan of Halo or what have you, you were the odd one out. That's not to say that you're point is any less valid, it's just that the status quo is shifting around some.
There's probably a lot to be desired about your flash skills, but I really like this style, and it fit very much with the subject matter. So, overall, thumbs up. And, I'm sad to say, it never gets better. Smile!
