Shroomery Movie Night
    #4086517 - 04/22/05 11:11 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

We should all meet for the opening night of "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." :popcorn:

And I don't want to see anyone blazed.  :mad:

I heard it sucks and isn't true to the book(s).

Ever watch the BBC TV series?

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Not at all. How about we all read the book together?

Yeah! :razz:

Another bad mean evil aliens coming to destroy the earth movie soon to be followed by the remake of War of the Worlds showing at a Theater near you this summer. :grin:

Not to mention the recent alien attacks of Men in Black, Independence Day, and Alien.

Maybe these movies have good in that they get more people talking and help them to ease fears of the unknown out there. Sometimes, I think they just generate them where they never would of existed otherwise like Jaws did with swimming in the ocean and sharks. I dunno. :3rd_eye:

How bout more movies dealing with nice ET's like Close Encounters and Contact? Those movies were cool!:thumbup:

However, I have team spirit! If a book discussion group will be formed on it, I'll get it and read it and find the good in it somewhere. :cheers:

Have you ever read the Hitchhiker's Guide series?

No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

I kinda thought that while reading your post. It is NOT the typical aliens attack story. It is not typical of anything ever written. Get AT LEAST the first 3 books and read them immediately or you have been cheated in life. This is not a recommendation merely a statement of utter truth.

I only had the movie previews to go on. I've pretty much read a lot of the same authors and stuff you have mentioned reading here so if you thought it was that good, I probably will appreciate it. I'll order them this week. Who's the author?

Douglas Adams. They are funny as hell. Douglas Adam's other book "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" is another fine read as well.
