Bob and I went today and saw The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I expected it to suck. It has gotten reviews that are all over the map. But Bob is stone Hitchhiker dude and owns it in ever medium it has ever been in. Laments that the current release of the BBC radio version doesn't have the part where Marvin does Pink Floyd.

Off we went and you know, I quite liked it. I was properly entertained. It wasn't great, but it sure didn't suck. And Douglas Adams did finally get it to film, even if he died first.

I just got back from seeing it with non-geeky friend. Neither of us had read the book. I thought it was an okay movie. Really funny in parts, but there were other parts where people around us were laughing, and we were scratching our heads going, "Huh?"

I didn't hate it. I didn't love it. I'm not sure that I liked it even. Though I didn't entirely dislike it. Suppose I'm still going, "Huh?"

Though I have to confess I was blown away by the trailer for Serenity. I'm really looking forward to that.

I really liked it.

They had the sperm whale & pot of flowers scene in there. I could not have been happier.
