YIPPEEEE! I can even bring my own door!
Thanks Raphie, I hadn't heard the good news!
Hope it doesn't spoil my own literature generated imagery.

if i'd have known you were interested, I'd have mentioned it a couple months ago when i saw the first teaser trailer.

i don't think we'll be disappointed. i, at least, plan on watching it at least 42 times...

susan, when life blows, you can't be too choosy lol a simple beast i am i am

nothing beats imagination kacy, but it looks pretty good, how true to the book we'll have to wait and see

christopher i'm a huge fan, had no idea it was in the works let alone due so soon. ever watched the bbc version? it's quite good given its limitations, of course i'd always hoped someone would tackle it again and now they have. still shaking my head. alan rickman as marvin..excellent, and thanks for all the fish

Goodie! I hope it won't take too long to make its way across the ocean. Now, where's that towel?

And yes... I love the BBC version.

Munda i have to find that bbc version on dvd, i thought marvin was hilarious

michelle hulk was horrible wasn't it, i didn't mind it so much until nick nolte's character got involved, threw the movie off and it fizzled into that horrible ending.

*speaking of comic book movies, i'm looking forward to batman begins, the trailers look great

I saw the commercial for it tonight. It looks awesome. I have heard of this,  probably from my brother, but haven't read the book yet. My kids are going to try and find it at their school library. I went to the web site earlier today but couldn't make it do anything...maybe I wasn't patient enough? don't know, but it looks cool.

good idea Martie, i think i'll do that with war and peace and not get off the machine until it's finished, that should shed off a few pounds.grins

SEA it's well worth it if youre into the absurd like Monty Python etc the website is heavy on flash so it slows down on some computers

Munda thanks, now if i can only get people to send it, been in queue forever lol. thanks for the site, i found some others shows i was looking for like firefly which was sadly and wrongfully cancelled

If you don't mind sending your address by e-mail, I'd gladly put it on DVD for you and send it by snail mail.

SEA it's one of those books you can't put down, don't let the size of it scare you either

Munda that's incredibly kind of you! I'll email you in a bit and hopefully i can send something in return
