Yes I would like to talk about one of my favorite films, 2004's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  I enjoyed this film and when I bought it on DVD, my friends and I had great fun ntpicking all of its scientific and reality flaws.  But all in all, it was a good film with a rich story.  At the end of the film, they did hint that the sequel to it, would be filmed.  That sequel was called the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.  I had waited and waiited for the announcements to this film, but they sadly never came.  So I finally started searching for info about it.  Then I read an interview with one of the movie's stars and he said the sequel wasn't coming.  This really broke my heart.  I mean if you're going to film the book, have the decency to film its follow-ups. 

Want me to tear up some of this film's scientific flaws?  Ok, I'll do a couple.

Marvin  In the film, they made Marvin a robot.  In the books, he was called Marvin, the Paranoid Android.  Do you know the difference between a robot and an android?  Its simple, an android is a robot designed the imitate the appearance and behavior of a living being.  Granted Marvin did act depressed, but that didn't make him an android.  His body was completely metallic and oddly-shaped.  His head was extremely large.  Whoever designed Marvin must have smoked too many joints.  If you design an upright robot with an oversized head, it wouldn't be able to stand up.

Vogons  These guys destroyed the earth to make room for a new space highway and they protect president Zaphod Beeblebrox.  Well if they are trying to protect Zaphod, why are they shooting at him?  I liked the part at the end when they are trying to "protect" Zaphod then Marvin comes out with the SMPOV gun and shoots them all.  They are become too depressed to do their job, LOL!!!

See My Point-Of-View Gun  This weapon is hilarious.  Could you imagine what the wrld would be like if this thing were real?  The world would be a better place.  But sadly, this thing would never become reality.  A weapon like this would change the checmical structure of your brain to make you understand why someone feels the way they do.  Something like this would be complex in the extreme.  The only way I see it being possible is through nanotechnology.

But all-in all, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was a great film.  Restaraunt at the End of the Universe deserves to be filmed.  Anyone agree with me on this?

Babe, I'm leaving.  I must be on my way.  The time is drawing near.  The train is going.  I see it in your eyes.  The love beneath your tears.  And I'll be lonely without you.  And I'll need your love to see me through.  So please me.  My heart is your hands.  And I'll be missing you...

Well, I'm interested in seeing that HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE adaptation someday.  Can't really decide on whether a sequel is merited until I've seen the first one.

No comment on the "reality flaws," obviously.  Lookingup

The Hitchhiker's Guide was originally a radio play and the BBC version is the best version since is almost follows the funny radio play.

I really didnt like the 2005 version because its really too short and looses the sarcasm... :)
