The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (2005)

The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy was an incredibly imaginative, crazy, humorous, beautiful and personal showcase of not just regular film but also occasionally animation and stop-motion, all the while accompanied by wondrously detailed narration. Of course it's not as elaborate as the book, but who would expect a mere two hour movie to be? The book took me a few days at least.

For what it's worth, I believe this is one of the best book-to-movie interpretations I've seen, which not only tells the story in a consistent and entertaining manner, with strong personalities and good actors, but also manages to pack in as many details from the book as possible without it being all too overwhelming.

The sceneries are at times incredible, and the story of how random stranger Arthur Dent one day wakes up to have both his house and his home planet demolished, embarking onto an interstellar voyage to find the truth behind the greatest question of all and maybe true love while he's there, is one that should leave none unaffected. Though it might take some time for it all to sink in.

I remember last time I watched this movie, at least two years ago, I was still entirely under my stubborn impression that it'll never be as good as the book... but it doesn't have to be! Leave the book out of it, and you'll find yourself standing on the doorstep to an incredible journey.

Great watch.
