Don't Panic! It's a great movie!

Yesterday I saw the new Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie. I had my doubts about this one, but I had to see it anyway.

Honestly, you would think that it would be difficult to make a movie out of something as quirky as Hitchhiker's. It was a great trilogy (in five parts), and I couldn't see how they could pull it off.

Well, they did pull it off. It was very funny and respected the original work. There were some changes, but nothing that I thought was worth mentioning.

I haven't seen a movie in the theatres since Christmas, so I'm glad I made the effort on this one.

Definitely worth seeing.

(Incidentally, I though the same thing about The Lord of the Rings as well, and Peter Jackson proved me wrong, happily!)
