I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,

    Bable Fish


    Well it was no LOTR, but it wasn't 'Prisoner of Azkaban' either.
    The much anticipated 'HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy', was O-kay.
    Without giving anything way, all I can say is that a lot of new stuff was added but a lot remained the same. Some of the new scenes were funny,
    eg. The fly-swatter at Volgosphere that erupts out of the ground and hits you in the face for 'thinking'.
    The 'cartoons' were better than the BBC version.
    Marvin was saved from ruin by Alec Rickman.
    The campy score was a fun touch.
    But, the extremly sappy ending was puzzling....I was left waiting for the punch line- the happy couple hitting each other over the head with a dolphin.
    Typical hollywood ending- get a girl each for the two White guys and leave the very very hot *drools* Black guy with a towel.

    Why is it all greek to me? Or, need I use the 'translation tool'?

    yep you need the real babel fish
    "The Babel Fish is small, yellow, and simultaneously translates from one spoken language to another.
    When inserted into the ear, its nutrition processes convert sound waves into brain waves, neatly crossing the language divide between any species you should happen to meet whilst travelling in space.

    Some say that the evolution of the Babel fish could not have been accidental, and hence that it proves the non-existence of God. "

    or better yet read the book.
    :D

    hey! i js saw the movie last week - it was entertaining although nothing close to the book but that goes without saying i guess :)

    The thing that bugged me most was that the doors on the spaceship didn't sound nearly as cheerful as I had imagined!

    Ipshi: I agree..they were just going for a 'sigh' as opposed to the cheerful note with the doors i suppose. I don't think anyone who hasn't read the book caught anything special about the doors.
