Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Seen it Finally
By Roman Strobl on VI 07, 2005
Finally, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has arrived to Prague so I went to see it with my friends. I knew upfront I should not expect much, I read the reviews in other blogs, so I rather didn't expect anything and waited to be pleasantly surprised. Which didn't happen - the movie was just average in my opinion. Maybe if I haven't read the book, which is so amazing or if I didn't see the series from the 70s, I would like the movie more. There were some good things, I liked the Vogons:
... and some of the sceens were very nice (like the factory for building planets), but still, compared to the original series with 6 parts, Artur Dent was just not British enough. It's hard to actually say what was missing, maybe it was the subtle difference in sense of humor... I can't tell, but it was not "it". On the other hand I still had lots of fun, it wasn't boring at all, so it's worth seeing, especially if you've read the book or you like sci-fi comedies/parodies.
