Harder then I thought!

Okay, I am sitting here trying to think of a Blog idea … and am beginning the realize this contest is a lot harder then I thought it would be. Meanwhile, the boyfriend is watching one of his favorite all time movies that he TIVO'd earlier this week: The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Well I have seen it numerous times now and can't seem to understand its full impact on my boyfriend's psyche but he seems to enjoy it. He has watched it at least dozen times. So I just asked him why do you like this movie so much and he replies 'because its funny'. I have yet to hear him belly laugh or even chuckle. But I do see him smirk and smile from time to time, and nod as if he has some deep understanding that space travel with your 'trusted towel could very well be a possibility'. I must admit the 'seriously depressed robot' does give me a small belly chuckle and the meaning of life learned by the characters in their search of understanding… well what else can it be but = 42, is also equally funny! But what is it about that movie that he really likes? I find much of it more silly then funny, like the guy with two heads or a flip top head, that's just weird. I do find it funny how those poet reading aliens deal with bureaucratic things. Slow and meticulous. Perhaps the writer of the story was poking fun at people and saying that things can be that ridiculous on earth as well as outer space if you let it! But why does the boyfriend like this movie so much? Let's see I know for a fact he is a Star Trek fan, so perhaps it has something to do with 'Boldly Going Where No Man Has Gone Before' that has him in a such a state of awe! But no, I don't think so, he is a little more diabolical then that. I know because we have been living with each other off and on, more on then off, for over eleven years. So after some more inquisition … and until it seemed like he was annoyed with me for asking again, he told me with a slight infliction is his voice 'because its funny that's all… and because the entire planet was commissioned, paid for, and run by mice … but they are just hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional intrusions into our reality”. So I ask you out there in Blogland, and anyone who may have seen this crazy movie, just what the heck does this really mean? I guess you have to have different kind of sense of humor like the boyfriends to really enjoy the movie. Has anyone of you ever seen this movie, I am sure most of you have? What about those dolphin too that sing 'Thank you for the Fish'? The movie is silly, not hysterically funny but just plain silly but I understand that there are many fans to this flick … I just want to know why? Oh yeah the reason being = 42 I guess!

  1. Years ago (well, not too many years ;)) I read the book, A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams and also part II of the series; The Restaurant at the End of the Universe! I loved those books, one of my favorite series! However, If I did not have that background, I would probably find the movie silly too.

    But when I found out there was a movie to the books, I was all "a-twitter" waiting for it to come out. I was not disappointed, for the movie was as cornball as the book! Cornball books make better movies if you already read the book! :)

    p.s. Melvin is my favorite too! Happy Blogging


  2. Well, I cannot tell you the full reason for the love of the movie accept that there was a book and then there was a game that were out when we still played games that were text based.
    This is what your situation is what would you like to do. (don't forget your towel!)
    I know that is why Tony likes it.
