Die Hard... bwahahaha!

Yeah. I'm watching the end. Mmm. Oh, look. It's Bruce Willis playing a sweaty, masculine mess of blood and chest hair.

Ah, but the real attraction? Yummy Alan Rickman. With a beard. As 'Hans'.

I love it. It's wacky. *cries as he dies* Ok, not so wacky.

Anyway... dear sweet mother of a goldfish. It's past two am! Uhhhh... I need a drink. I need a life. I'd enjoy an air conditioner. Can I go home now? Me want sandwich. *shivers*

See what I said about wacky? *crickets chirp* Yeah, and there are, like, two people who'd get that reference. And one of them is Stef. And I'm pretty sure that she and I are the only people in the world who want to do Adam Long and are not ashamed of it. (well... and his wife. Which should kinda go without saying. Anyway...)

Was reading "Trigun" fics. Mmm... nostalgia. Whhhaaaaarg. Ought to go and read some "X-Men", huh? Make everyone a lot happier with me. Lord knows we don't need any more "Harry Potter" bull shit in this world. Well, not from me...

My thoughts on a "Hitchhiker's Guide" movie: "Why? Why must we bring another wonderful book to the big screen? Are our imaginations so muddled that we can't use them anymore? Do we have to be shown every detail? Can't we just READ?! You know, the way we used to? We don't need a movie! We need actual literacy! Stop the madness! No "Hitchhiker's..." movie! Use your brains! I know you have them; they keep you upright. All you have to do is work out how to let them entertain you."

For those who care...

"Hitchhiker's Guide" movie. Yes, there was a miniseries-type-thing made... I'd assume it was done in the eighties, it seems very eighties. And it was a miniseries, not a movie. 30 minute episodes and the like. I sat through the whole thing quite a long time ago after renting it from Blockbuster (along with a friend who was not very happy at the time). The guy playing Ford was reasonably attractive and deadpan-ed quite nicely, so I think I was pretty pleased.

BUT, in true Hollywood fashion. there is an actual movie rumored to be being tossed about. Scary. And now it's even more prevalent because of Adams' recent death. Apparently (again, rumor mill) he wanted to see a movie be made.

I don't know. A low budget, PBS miniseries is one thing... but a movie sounds like an attempt by the estate to milk more money out of the trilogy. I don't like it. If it was made, I'm sure I'd go see it. But I'd rather it not be made at all (and this coming from a squeaky little Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings fangirl. By the way, I still think Harry Potter should have been animated).

I don't know why, but it discourages me. I mean... there's no way to capture Douglas Adams on the silver screen. It just doesn't work that well. Small screen, perhaps. With aa decent sense of humor. But Hollywood is just too calculated for HHGTTG. Sorry.
