"Excellent render of the original radio show"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Engrossing, funny and quirky. Not the full story though. Doesn't include Miliways – The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Doesn't suffer from the early ending though. Very good.

"Picture Great, Audio Good, Disc Poor"
2 stars"

Having owned this on DVD I was fully expecting the discs menu to be similar or maybe better than the DVD one, you can imagine my surprise when I put the disc on to be greeted with a frame capture of Marvin with some text on it saying the move would auto play and that there is no menus.

Also the Packaging has the DTS-HD Master Audio logo on it, there is no DTS-HD track on this disk, there is a Standard DTS and Standard DD and a Liniar PCM (So its not really an issue, but it is misleading)

Video quality was fantastic, audio quailty was good but it was really let down by the sloppy package (DTS-HD logo, Lack of menus, Incorrect aspect ratio on the case)

Video 9/10 Audio 8/10 (Marking it down due to the misleading logo) Extras 0/10

Description

It’s been a radio series, a book, a computer game and a TV series. Now Douglas Adams’ enormously popular sci-fi comedy, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a movie.

Londoner, Arthur Dent (Martin Freeman, who played Tim in TV’s The Office) is having a very bad – if not downright strange – day. His house is about to be bulldozed, he discovers his best friend, Ford Prefect (Mos Def) is actually an alien from the planet, Betelgeuse as well as a writer for the aforementioned Guide – and Earth is about to be demolished to make way for an intergalactic expressway! News of Arthur’s soon-to-be bulldozed home pales in comparison with that last piece of information.

Saved by his friend before the world explodes, Arthur hitches a ride on a passing spacecraft and sets out on a journey across the galaxy in which nothing is what it seems. Among those he encounters are the President of the Galaxy, the two-headed Zaphod Beeblebrox (Sam Rockwell); Slartibartfast (Bill Nighy); Trillian (Zooey Deschanel); Marvin the Paranoid Android (Warwick Davis and the voice of Alan Rickman), Questular Rontock (Anna Chancellor) and a religious cult leader named Humma Kavula (John Malkovich) – created especially for the movie.

Arthur learns that a towel is the most useful thing in the universe, finds the meaning of life and discovers that everything he needs to know can be found in one book: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
