Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Last night we got to see an advance screening of the new Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie! (By pure luck - we were walking down a street in Pasadena when they were handing out passes! Sometimes it doesn't suck to live in L.A.)

lordandrei has a good non-spoilery review here, so I'll go straight to a slightly more Collapse )

Of course, this was the rough director's cut. It will be interesting to see what they change for the released version (which I will definitely pay to go see). But I really don't see them absolutely ruining it at this point. There's too much there that's good. And they've left the door wide open to do the rest of the series, though I'm afraid this won't be mainstream enough to get picked up for the sequels. We can hope, though!

There's too much to go through play-by-play, but if there's anything in particular you want to know, comment and ask, I'll answer :)
