A – Z Challenge – Sci-Fi Films The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Hi there bloggies, I’ve been seeing some post warning me of an A – Z Challenge and I was curious. I’ve seen this around before but have never participated, for some mad reason I thought I would give it a go.

So here I am.

My theme is the A-Z of Scifi moves, I’ve not given this a great deal of thought and I know of a number but I won’t lie there’s some I will struggle with. I hope you enjoy them!

Y is for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Don’t start ok? You try finding a Sci-Fi film beginning with Y – so I did a flip and it’s the last letter in this case.

Most Sci-Fi nerds will have read the great book The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, there was a series back the 70’s / 80’s and in 2005 a film was created and released. The film generally follows the book apart from one bit in the middle which is odd.

So if you need refreshing, Arthur Dent’s house is about to be demolished and his friend Ford Prefect think s the best way to solve this is to go to the pub. While at the pub Ford tells Arthur that the Earth is going to be destroyed to make way for the a hyperspace bypass.

So ford and Arthur end up on a Vogon destructor ship, get shot into space and rescued by Zahod Beeblebrox in the spaceship Heart of Gold which he has stolen. Here Arthur finds Trillan and a whole adventure begins…

Although this film doesn’t stick strictly to the plot it’s pretty good and quite enjoyable with loads of funny silly moments in it and a number of amusing ideas. Among which of course is Douglas Adams Space is BIG quote read by Stephen Fry who narrates through the film.

With Y done that means Z is next… This is the last one!!!!

      1. It’s OK, trouble for it was the radio series was one heck of a hard act to follow.

  1. I thought this was your H post! I didn’t watch the movie but read the book ages ago that I don’t even remember what it’s about anymore until I read your short synopsis here. You’re almost at the end!
