Movie Fun

James Lileks referred to George Lucas as “an overrated wad of bearded fatuity”. Probably accurate, but a longer and meaner critique can be found here. It’s good thing he’s stopping the series. It’s starting to suck and he’s burned out all the goodwill.

In other news, J and I went to see HHGTTG. Not absolutely true to the books, but fun nonetheless. I give it a thumbs up, meaning its worth the 5 bucks to see it in the theatre. I won’t get into the geek wars over deviation from canonical text except to note that Douglas Adams wrote the original draft of the script. I don’t think you’re entitled to claim the man himself isn’t entitled to make changes in his own work when changing mediums. That just won’t fly very far.
