The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy

   30 April 2005, the wee hours

The initial reviews for The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy were not so great—at least this is what I was told; I don’t like to read reviews early. I watched the movie tonight with Dave and some friends, and really enjoyed it. I barely remember the story from the book, which may be a good thing. The movie’s protagonist, Arthur Dent, is saved from the destruction of the earth by his good friend, Ford Prefect. They then wander the galaxy in an attempt to find out what the ultimate question of the universe is. Everyone played their parts superbly. The president of the galaxy was particularly funny. Mos Def plays Ford Prefect, and he is also surprisingly good. The film is definitely worth checking out.

  1. I didn’t really enjoy it. I found it a little too outrageous. It started off well and humourous, but just seemed to get a little out of hand.

  2. I quite liked it.
    Its probably a good thing you don’t remember much from the book though, it was entirely different, but I believe thats the point.
    So far as I can see anyway.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
