In a 'Galaxy' Far, Far Away...
No, not THAT galaxy. I'm talking about "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," opening in theaters on Friday.
Anne and I caught a sneak preview last night at AMC Mazza Gallerie and, on the whole, we enjoyed it. The movie meanders quite a bit plotwise (then again, so does Douglas Adams's book), but it strikes the right off-kilter, humorous tone. Fans of the books and TV shows should be pleasantly surprised. And Alan Rickman might be the most loveable depressed robot ever (yes, even more so than R2D2).
Speaking of R2, you may be aware that some small independent film -- "Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith," I think it's called -- is coming to a theater near you on May 19. Tickets at a few Washington theaters are already on sale (check www.fandango.com) and I'm sure more will go on sale shortly. We will have showtimes, trailers and other cool "Star Wars" stuff here on washingtonpost.com very soon, so keep your Jed-eyes open.
