The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
    #4091547 - 04/24/05 02:43 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

the extended preview for this movie came on...all I've got to say is this film has some SERIOUS psychedelic implications, it comes out Friday.

the preview tripped me the fuck out. :crazy2:

I have had no previous knowledge of the H2G2 idea, but I was so amazed by the shit going on beneath the surface of this preview that I had to immediately go online and read about it...pretty interesting stuff.

I noticed there was no thread about it, so let's start one.

anyone else excited to see it?

Never read the book but I plan on seeing the movie. It looks badass.

Adamist and I have been discussing the probable indications of this film, and how it is to be perceived. I think it will be worth my time.
Great idea for filmature.


--------------------
A plethora of music aspirations control my temptations of future revelations beyond "now". The percussion, and the heart beat of my love and devotion. The rhythm goes beyond, prying into the third eye, releasing the creativity held so far inside. The melodicies, through the out of tune pianos and broken classical guitars...there lies a beauty. A beauty as prevelent as the fire inside. To release these energies is pure ecstacy, to deveop these gifts is sacred. The vocality, so pure as can be, shying away from herself, lies within me. For the underlying serenitity, this is what I live for. I plea for harmony, and nothing more. Music equals love. Creation of love leads to the procreativity of the World, and it's spirals and puddles prevailing.

I got the book recently. I promised myself I'd read it before I saw the movie.

Then you are mostly likely to be disappointed by the movie.
That's what usually happens when books turn into movies.
I'm hoping this movie won't be too kiddy-like and that it'll be well adapted. If it turns out to be corny, that will totally suck.

don't forget that sometimes kiddy-like films have the most fundamental and worldy concepts in them, these are great on psychedelics. Take the difference between right and wrong, here is a very deep, complex idea often debated right up until the day you die but children begin understanding it at a very early age, and so by the time you're 12 or 13 you think you've got it figured out.  By then you're way too old and mature :wink: to be doing ANYTHING those pesky 1st graders are doing, like enjoying kiddy-films.  its not til after highschool that most people step back and start taking a second look at some of the fundamental concepts they've acquired throughout their life.  a change of setting/friends is usually what accompanies, or a profound psychedelic experience can have that same outward looking in effect.

I, too, do hope the movie is not too corny, but this film is supposed to be conceptually different from most films coming out these days.

I have read all the books, and have been waiting for this movie for some time.

REALLY good books, some stuff I am sure the movie will leave out.

The script for the movie was written by Douglas Adams before he died, and some of it doesn't quite go with the books exactly...so don't get pissed.

links coming in one moment.

A good site about the movie and things people don't like about it.

"Garth Jennings, the director, has already said that to portray Ford as a hip-hop character would be, and I quote, "the most appalling thing ever in the history of the world"

so far the h2g2 track record is a very good one, so i fully expect the film to be excellent. the books are superb, of course, the 80's tv series, which although now dated is nonetheless also top notch and the radio adaptations are (as we say this side of the pond) the dogs bollocks!!! (that's a good thing by the way!)

as luck would have it, the latest radio adaptation ("the quandary phase") starts on may 3rd on bbc radio4. you can listen to it live online or use the bbc radio4 excellent "listen again" feature to listen to it at a time more convenient.

it's not often that the main character in books/films etc come from my home town of guildford, surrey, so maybe that's another reason why i like it so!

seriously, if u think u might be interested in things h2g2 find the time to listen to the radio adaptation, you wont regret it!
trailer for radio programe: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/hitchhikers/media/hitchhikers_trail2.ram
webpage for radio programme: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/hitchhikers/scenes.shtml
the other radio programmes (three series i think) are available on audio cd, here's the tertiary phase for example: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/det...ks&n=507846

have fun fellow hitchhikers!

Sorry to be pedantic, but the radio series was the first version, the books were written after it was aired and so successful.

Personally I've got mixed feelings about the seeing the film, I'm dreading they'll miss out the humour and just make it another action movie. Still, I think the thing to do is forget everything done in the past, and just try and enjoy it for what it is. Shit, I was wrong when I thought Lord of the Rings would be bad.

there have been at least three radio series (maybe four? not sure!!)

the most recent radio series are adaptations of books which had been written previously (ie the books came first). the first radio series came before the book of the same name (ie the radio came first). i'm not sure when the second radio series was made, but certainly tertiary phase onwards come after the books, indeed mr adams is now dead, so he certainly cant have written the most recent radio series before the book!

so to bring this thread up to date, I caught the movie, and I thought it was great.  The movie had a lot of social, political, and ecological messages throughout the whole thing.  An abundance of analogies too.  And, it was quite funny.  Mos Def did a great job too, he didn't detract from the movie at all for me, even knowing him as a rap star, the movie really brings you away from reality.

As for entertainment quality, I laughed pretty hard a few times, and overall it was very interesting.  The whole "don't panic" thing has me pretty convinced this entire movie or idea is nothing but an analogy for the first-time tripper.  When he flies out onto the "floor" with one of the creators of Earth was the most splendid part of the movie for me, and so many flashy flying colors, very emotional symphonic background music, all while this guy sits there grabbing his face in awe and amazement, I think this would make for a spectacular scene tripping as well.  This part represents the true "peak" if you will.  I've been in that man's shoes!!  And I've felt as if I were never coming back to Earth as well.

I would've loved to have seen it tripping, but a theater would bug me out, with everyone chomping on their popcorn and sipping their sodas dry, I'd probably go nuts and have to leave :laugh:

I recommend everyone see this movie.  Even if, at the end, it doesn't rank as your favorite movie of all time, most folks around here will likely be able to appreciate what it has to offer. 


Anyone else see it?  Whatdya think?

I practically worshipped Doug Adams in Jr. HS. I've read all his books several time, and loved 'em! PBS and BBC made a series about it in the early '80's that was great, so if you can catch that as well, do so. Imma gonna find a way to see the new movie....

the movie simply kicked some ass. I liked it, and was supprised at this fact. I want to watch it on a low dose of mushrooms. Or mabey just some really, really good pot, and um, a low dose of mushrooms. :wink:

I'm usually really worried when rappers try to become actors, but Mos Def did really good in his role.

I can't wait for the sequel. Better not suck. :grin:
