    Default period or comma

    I read this on the net today:

    "While I wholeheartedly agree about seeing something new and creative, and that Hollywood appears to have run out of original ideas in a mere 80-90 years of making films. I would much rather see something creative and see them stop with the countless sequels and remakes; however,... "

    I think a comma rather than a period should be placed between "...80-90 years of making films" and "I would much rather see... ". Am I right? Thanks.
