Thumbs Up

So... The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy finally comes out this Friday in movie form. It's been a long time coming.
I'm not sure if I'm more excited or more worried. I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Not worried about that. But will the movie live up to the standard that the trilogy warrants? I just don't know. I do know that I probably couldn't have cast it better, and honestly, this is the first movie that I ever wanted to make, so I've definitely given it some thought. No, I think it's going to be fine. I just hope the movie will provide an impetus for actually reading the books, giving another generation of hopeless teenagers a brilliant, if brief, escape from their respective realities.
