I've seen 6 ads for HGTTG tonight. But it's all been the same trailer. That's rarely a good sign...

Bloody hell!

I read in Salmon of Doubt that Adams had been working on the film version for at least a decade, so it's doubtful that his version would have been quite so lame as the intro review makes out. Sounds like a bunch of execs went "Finally, the obstructionist bastard is dead! Let's make it OUR way!" and proceeded to fuck it up.

Bollocks. Fans should do a [url=http://www.panicstruckpro.com/revelations/revelations_movie.html]Star Wars: Revelations and do it themselves, properly.

All threads taken into account, this is possibly the Worst Day Ever on CG. Crap crap crap.

I was semi-hoping that was a one off review by a bitter - never be satisfied - fanboy but sadly the BBC seems to almost totally agree on most points.

he doesnt hold back does he?

"He also has a third arm which, in an astounding display of cut-price moviemaking that would shame Roger Corman, is kept completely hidden under a small cloak, only emerging a couple of times very briefly. Jeez, how much would a prosthetic spare arm have cost?"

:lol: a good point, well made.

shame, I was looking forward to re reading it and watching the film

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie is bad. Really bad. You just won't believe how vastly, staggeringly, jaw-droppingly bad it is. I mean, you might think that The Phantom Menace was a hopelessly misguided attempt to reinvent a much-loved franchise by people who, though well-intentioned, completely failed to understand what made the original popular - but that's just peanuts to the Hitchhiker's movie. Listen.

:lol:

Oh man. That's brilliant.

For those who aren't as stupidly obsessed as me:

Space is big - really big - you just won't believe how vastly, hugely mind-bogglingly big it is. You may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space, listen...

YEah I'm sure those are good. Because IMDB isn't the biggest bunch of lunatic fan boys and ace tabloidists in the world.

Venon, I might be temped to ask you what your point was, but I know you are totally pointlsess. Anyway, why on this earth, would I actually give a Canadian dollar that I would care about anything you said?
Not that I ever thought about or even might ever imagine I might care.

He obviously didn't look at the link did he.

They are external reviews. ie. links to reviews by other sites, not in imdb.

Pointing out Venom is too lazy to click on somethign and read is like pointing out Hellen Keller was a freak in bed.

Everyone knows it.
