Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Written By: Gary on May 11, 2005 4 Comments

So I’ve read all five books in the trilogy (yes, I said that right) and was hesitant in seeing the movie. A few people (such as Heather) said it was worth seeing so I went. It was hysterical! You’ve got to remember it’s slightly british humor, it’s not Monty Python or Benny Hill but it’s definitely not American sitcom humor.

Some of the movie was exactly like the book. His response to the Vogon poetry was exactly how I remembered the wording from the book with the same intonation as I imagined it. His memories of Tricia were a little exaggerated if I recall exactly and some other subplots I don’t really remember or maybe they were exaggerated for the movie. But they needed to make a lot of weird stuff fit in a two hour movie. I enjoyed it. If you liked the books and understand that books are not movies (and thus cannot be represented exactly the same) you will enjoy it too.

    Really? They have a movie about this? Probably not in Malaysia, lol. I remember reading the book, way, way back, and wow, it was a tough one to understand. Dun know where I jugged my old edition – probably need to buy a new one. So in your comparison of book and movie – which one scored better?

    Well, quite a few of those plotlines were never in the books. And yes, a trilogy in five parts: gotta love it. But the big question is, are you geek enough to know why the gag about the Restaurant at the End of the Universe was wrong? Inquiring minds want to know. :)

    because the restaurant at the end of the universe wasn’t at a place in the universe, it was during a time in the universe…kind of like the second episode of the new dr. who.

    oops, was i supposed to leave that for you to answer, gary?

    That’s okay, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to give it away, so you got to do it.

    It’s no big deal, just a giB gnaB…
