The OP did not characterize the video as 'blockbuster'; the ‘observations’ of other Poster’s are their responsibility.
The video stated “two and a half million stone blocks”; Dr. Smith (page 203) wrote:
”The quarries were required to produce 2.3 million blocks of stone of various sizes—2.2 million blocks of limestone from Giza, 98,000 casing stones from Turah, and several hundred granite beams and blocks (and the sarcophagus) from Aswan. Clearly, the 2.2 million blocks of Giza limestone drove the schedule…”
The oft repeated misconception of the ”rate of placement” assumes setting only one-block-after-another. The reality differs in the utilization of multiple crews transporting and placing stones simultaneously. Smith details an analysis of the Workforce’s rate of “blocks-per-hour” (pages 207-209), stating:
”First I considered stone block production requirements based on a five-, ten-, or fifteen-year construction schedule to see if the Giza quarry could produce the required amount of stone within this time…To meet these construction schedules, it is necessary to deliver 2.2 million stone blocks to the work area at these rates:
The “blocks-per-hour” number shown above is the "average number", not the optimum. A more realistic production rate would be higher at the lower courses (when there are many blocks to place) and lower at the higher courses as the difficulty increases (and there are fewer blocks).” [Emphasis mine]
