55 Movies to Get You to Christmas – #47

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
“In the beginning the universe was created. This made a lot of people angry and has widely been regarded as a bad move.”

    Before I get into talking about why this movie is a must-see, I have to warn you that it is WEIRD.  First of all, it is essentially the documented voyage of Zooey Deschanel, Martin Freeman, Mos Def, and Sam Rockwell into space, narrated by Stephen Fry.  If I proposed that movie idea to you, you would probably respond with, “That would be so dang weird.”  Correct.  It was pretty dang weird.

    It is a strange movie, primarily if you have not read the book.  The first time I saw it, I was significantly weirded out, especially when that one thing happens to Sam Rockwell’s character.  HOWEVER, it is also really interesting and clever.  The writing is genius, and if you put any weight on the involvement of talented people, I’ve already named some significant individuals, and there are others who fill up supporting roles as well.  If you can handle weird, odd and startling, you should definitely see this brilliantly written, brilliantly acted strange-fest of a movie.
