Weird "Indie Game The Movie" Update

So I bought the movie yesterday through Steam and installed it, today I went to watch it and Steam is saying that there is a 3 gig update for it. There is no way that this is real, but I can't watch it until the fake update is finished. How can I get Steam to stop trying to make me download 3 gigs and just watch the movie?

IIRC, they added/modified the subtitles within the movie, which is the update you're downloading right now.

From what I've heard, the movie is a simple video file inside the installation folder, so you could try and play it with WMP or VLC while it's loading the update. If it's re-downloading the whole movie because of the update, this probably won't work, though.

Ok, thanks.

So that was it! I uninstalled it immediately when I've seen Steam started to redownload the whole movie the other day. Too bad cause I wanted to watch a scene again but whatever.
