Movie Night

I had my own little movie night last night -- bought popcorn and sat down to watch Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. The cool thing was, this is the first movie I've watched since I reunited my stereo system with my TV in the entertainment center (the stereo system had been attached to the computer in the office for several years, mostly for recording). The sound was very good with real stereo coming from real speakers. OK, I know, stereo and not Dolby 7.1 whatever is modern these days, but it was still an improvement.

I liked HHGG. I know reviews were kind of mixed, and I'm into the original books to where I could've been really disappointed. But I think the producers hit the mark pretty well. They got all the points that "make" the story for me, and it was a lot of fun. The casting was very good. I *loved* Marvin -- they did a great job with the little 'droid. And I've had the opening theme, "So Long and Thanks for All the Fish" going through my head all morning.

I wonder if they're going to make any of the other books into movies. Given how long it took the first one to make it to screen, I don't think anyone should hold his breath. But I'd go see The Restaurant at the End of the Universe if they made it, for sure.
