Oh no! Why was it so bad?

ugh
first off, it was an hour 50 minutes. i knew right then and there - bad sign.

they cut plot to make it a "believeable story" - they cut some of THAT plot to try to make it funnier - they added in a love story, then cut some plot to add in some special effects.

the movie started well, but went downhill so fast it was mind boggling.

if i had no knowledge of the original works, i could see how i could be entertained. as a true fan, i felt dirty clapping at the commemoration to D.A. at the end.

I wanted to throw up and cry, but neither would have made me feel better.

then i walked from fucking w. 34th past macy's back to the 6 again.

the end.

Re: ugh
Oh man... N. has been, like, jerking off at the prospect of seeing this film. I'm sure we'll go see it anyway... but that kinda stinks.

hmm. i trust your opinion on this one.

which sucks, cause i was pretty psyched to go see it.

i imagined a letdown, to some degree though... figuring theyd never hit the same mark that the material created in my head the first time i read it... i just hoped it wouldnt be such a letdown.

though im still psyched that mos def did his thing in it.

yeah
i can't really complain overmuch about the acting - they cast the characters v. well - marvin was priceless.

but it is like seeing your favorite shakespearan troupe performing a stage adaptation of a he-man episode.

i was crushed, and am still angry.

if you can take it for itself, it is worth seeing. there are roughtly 1 minute 30 secnds of insider hitchicker jokes they kept in from the book, which are wonderful. the other minute fourty eight minutes, thirty secods, totally sucked.

Re: yeah
fuckit, then. ill download it later. id rather go out for a nice meal or something than see a letdown of a movie... that had such amazing potential!

btw, the shakespeare analogy seems perfect, heh. im imagining peter o'toole as orko... lol.

Poser. I thumb my nose at you.
You are such a poser. Stockdale revealed to me that before the movie you were attempting to tell him which part of the book Malkovich's written-in character was from. Mmmm-hmmm. Sure, come over to my house beforehand, complain about seeing the movie with posers, make me think you're all Geeked-out about it, and then you think Humma Kavula was in the books. And pretend after zee flick that you knew all along he was written in? Man. Who's the poser now, eh? I bet you can't even tell me (WITHOUT LOOKING IT UP) why it was cool that Zaphod called Ford "Ix." (yes, I am looking for a verbatim quote, here, of what "Ix" means.)

i didn't know what he was in the movie
I was guessing that the character he was _supposed_ to be was one of the Krikkit (though I admit wholeheartedly that I could not fucking remember what they were called last night). I had no idea how far and wide they were going to jump around between books, and what, id anything, they would incorporate from the radio/tv series.

After we saw the flick, it was pretty obvious Humma Kavula was not what I thought he was going into the movie - I kept my nose OUT of the spoilers and reviews mind you, otherwise I would have never seen the goddamned movie! =p The little robot legs made me think of the white robots.

I always thought the Ix thing was a problem with the babelfish. In the movie, I thought it was cool because it seperated the audience POV from the stuff that Arthur was hearing. Ford's real name was something like "cannot explain what a hrung is, or why it would collapse on Betelguese". It HAS been about two years here dear, so I hope you aren't taking me to the mat too harshly.

i'm only screening this because i don't want my name connected to my blog anywhere
i freely and wholeheartedly admit that i am nowhere near the immersive you are here, but a poser is a very different creature! i am genuinely hurt by your labeling me as such.

i like hhg, i certainly don't live it (aside from a gratitous 42 reference here and there, and an occasinal comparison to . the only books i reread regulraly that i do live are the wheel of time series - in my depths of immersion there, i can probably match your depths of immersion with hhg.

i don't think a poser woulda freestlyed what ford's name meant, even if i was off by a bit. i did totally forget about it killing his father. i forget what day it is sometimes too - i think too much of my status is being called out on a few tangental issues here.

i think you are taking the whole Humma Kuvula way too far. i definteily made assertions i had no backing for, but i was nowhere near declaring a papal edict on who or what JM's character was.

sorry for lettin you down.

it is a neck and neck between my love for you, and my hate of how easy it is for you to pick me apart.

like fencing matches of old.
