  • 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.

                                I've never read the book, and I thought the movie was way cool. Now I have to check the novel. "Thanks for all the fish!" :lol:

                                  Yep. That was hysterical! I was so confused - why are they showing us the teaser trailer for a film we're about to see? They totally got me.

                                    AHh!!! Yes! That is what I was coming in here to post. I am SO excited for that movie. I freak out each time I see the trailer! (which wasn't good when it was on our promo DVD at my store playing all the time)

                                    Jennie thought it was starting so she shushed me... and this is what was in it,
                                    Spoiler
                                    then I saw the "don't" drop and it just said panic and all of a sudden CHICKEN LITTLE text drops. Then Chicken Little ran towards us and the song, "it's the end of the world as we know it" played. It said it's coming out Nov. 4th, 2005 so a date is officially set.

                                    That was GREAT. I loved it. It's not posted on the www.chickenlittlemovie.com site yet. Has anyone found it online? I'd love to see it again.

                                    Heck, I'd love to see the movie again. I loved the robot!

                                        It was typical Hollywood stuff mixed in with jokes that were supposed to be funny because they didn't make any sense.

                                        It was okay. I'll probably rent the DVD to look at the random collection of extras, but I won't run out again to see it tomorrow or anything.
