Lazy Weekend  
Watching movies...went and snagged the videos of "Hitchhikier's Guide To The Galaxy"...and discovered, via IMDb, that there's some production on a new remake to the big screen. Marvin the Paranoid Android is a midget, Ford Prefect is a black rapper...CHRIST, could they fuck it up any worse?

Fuckin' humans...

I'm not sure how I feel about a midget Marvin, but I've heard that the guy who's playing Ford has done other, serious works where the fact that he's a rapper never comes to play. I wouldn't put it past Hollywood to mess it up, but I'll give the actor a bit of credit.

As for Trillian, in the books she did have dark hair. She had blonde hair in the TV series because, after a string of dismal actresses that did look like Trillian, DNA decided on an actress who didn't look like Trillian, but had her character down the best.

Yeah, he appears to have done other stuff, but I just don't see a street-wise-lookin' black man as being Ford Prefect, y'know?

As for Trillian, that's true, I had forgotten that. man, how long's it been since I actually read the books? Yeesh.

Don't worry Mos Def (the guy playing Ford) is actually a pretty good actor. Definitely on a higher level then say....DMX or Ludicris. Have Faith.

Of course this story is totally alien to me (no pun intended) I'm going to have to read up on it or at least see the first movie so I can act like I'm cool when/if I see with my friends. I hear good things though.

Definitely read at least the first book.

First three, I would say, are a must and just about equally good. The last 2.5 are really good, but only if you really get into the trilogy.
