    Lightbulb Don't Panic!!! Hitchhiker's Movie is Out!

    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie is out, and, having just returned from seeing it, I can tell you it is awesome. I'd see it again. Now. No, seriously.

    After posting my initial review afew days ago at 11 at night and still high from seeing it, I was afraid I wasn't being very objective. I had fun with the movie, but now I am very concerned as to how it will play to the uninitiated, or the too initiated for that matter. In retrospect I still think it was a great, fun movie. I plan on seeing it again. I just hope it does well.

    I would put myself inbetween the initiated and initiated- I listened to the radio plays as a kid, but haven't read the books and its been a while since I have had any exposure to the material. That said, I thought it was pretty entertaining, though would have like to hear more from the "guide". I think it will depend on whether ot not dry, british humor appeals to you. My job is to gage audience reactions to Buena Vista Pictures releases and both screenings I attended today were very well received. You could tell there were a lot of die hards in the audience, but there both were also fairly full. I think its going to do really well. It has also been very well reviewed.

    How true is it to the book?

    Can someone tell me how they manage to do the narration of what the whale is thinking?

    It seems pretty true to the book, and the narration is done as a voice over while they show the whale falling. I bet you will like it G!

    Saw it today. I've never read the book. Victoria has. I liked it... it was well done (or should that be done well?)... yet the acting was a little too stylized. It was played a little hard towards campiness. Vic says it was very true to the book... but she wished it included more.

    All in all... an entertaining film. Definately one to see on the big screen. Very nice effects. Fun. Not an all-time classic, but a nice little movie.

    Well, all of the Hitchhiker publications (radio, books, game, tv show, movie) contradict each other. On purpose. No one knows exactly why but that's how Douglas Adams wanted it.

    He wanted to be opposite of George Lucas....

    Those who saw it.. did you guys get the Chicken Little H2G2 parody teaser?
    tick tock tick tock madness comes tonight
    what's reality compared to me
    I rest on the bed and I'm sure I slowly get mad
    I'm in a state of mind which makes me blind
    for the fact that I'm a man
    I'm here to stay forever but not today
