So, my first, and most important comment would be to just forget the movie and read the book instead.

I don't think the movie makers did a bad job with it--they definitely tried hard to keep the movie in the right spirit as the book, but I think the movie was sort of doomed to...not succeed (I don't want to say fail b/c that's just too strong).

Basically, as one of my... read more

One of the funniest movies I know.

Of course the book ist better, you can't expect that a movie has all the small jokes in it that a book has.

The best thing would be to watch the movie and read all the books(there are five, so it takes a while ;)).
So happy reading!

Douglas would have loved it

This was a movie I've been looking forward to for a very long time. My family used to listen to it every night when it was on NPR, and I've always adored it. I have two things to say before I go on to the spoilerish stuff. One is that it was fabulous, and if you like the series in any form, you should go see it. The other is that Douglas Adams would have loved it. And that, beyond anything else, i... read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- September 2018 (33 movies items)

" Netflix- 1hr. 49min. First Viewing The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is the film version of that one kid in class who is desperate for both your attention and admiration. It's hard to argue that there isn't wit and ingenuity on display here. Objectively, the material is brimming with creativity that is difficult not to appreciate. Unfortunately, it's also desperate; it'll won't just let something happen, it'll announce that it's happening so you'll know just how smart it is. Great material d"

"Re-watch - Nov. 4th The kiddo and I had agreed to have a lazy movie day in our PJ's, and I let her pick the films. What she didn't realize initially is that all three films she chose are adapted from books and set at least partly in London, which led to her questioning whether all movies she wants to see are set in the UK. Heh. We recently read the novel this film is based off of, and so she wanted to revisit the film. I'm still not thrilled with what they did to the book here, and can't help w"
