HHGG Review
 
HHGG Review [ Film & TV -> Review ]
Posted by King of Creation Sun 30 Jan 2005, 3:01 PM
Ain't It Cool News has reviewed a test screening of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  It's a wonderfully positive review, even though the reviewer only saw a very rough cut of the film. 
I could give you the requisite preamble about how important the work of Douglas Adams is to me. I could write about how many of my friendships over the years have been at least partially predicated on a shared affection for the most inaccurately named trilogy of all time. Or I could try to chart all the stuttered starts and stops the film's gone through in development over the years. But ultimately, what really matters is the film itself. Is it any good? Will it satisfy fans? Will it play for audiences unfamiliar with the books? I can't answer that last question... Disney's marketing department is going to have to do that... but I can tell you that I thought the film was a glorious shambling tribute to the work of Adams, a beautifully realized vision filled to the brim with quirky performances and hilarious details. It's almost shockingly eccentric and manages to stay very faithful to the spirit of all the previous incarnations of the story while also contributing some fascinating new ideas to the overall mythos.

AICN doesn't give good reviews out like candy, so I think we'll be in for a treat when this film is released.  And this was just a rough cut!
