I never though a comedic movie could be so fun.The movie is complete garbage compared to the books. If you liked the movie, than you owe it to yourself to read the 3 books. There's so much more to the story and the characters are much better in the books.
Actually, the movie was quite good, though i do like the books a lot more (it is my favorite book series). Anyway there are actually five books though it is called they Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy just to add to the random humor.
The books are:
The Hitchhiker's Guides to the Galaxy
The Restaurant at the End of the Galaxy
So Long and Thanks for all the Fish
Life, the Universe, and Everything
(I don't think it is in that particular order.)
There is also a short story called: "Young Zaphod Plays it Safe"

Probably. We'll see how Atlus keeps doing games, but things really don't look good.
I will be very VERY pissed if Persona 5 doesn't come out in the U.S.

Ah, well I just remembered the word "trilogy" being involved. I read them in the Ultimate Hitchhikers Guide book, which is just all the books in one massive book, so I don't remember them as individual books :P
I don't think I've read And Another Thing though, might have to pick it up.
Gonna have to pick them all up then, the movie was great and all this positive feedback toward the books is only making everything better. Also;
jogging God for the win!!!
I have something brewing on my bead but I won't say what it is because I'll probably jix it and never actually finish it.
Movie to add to your list, Mabelma,
Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus ( a movie so bad it's funny)
Kill Bill Vol. 2
Howl's Moving Castle
Sorry if any of those are already on your list, but I don't have the patience to read that.

Not sure if these are in your list due to tl;dr, but these are some that i liked.
Miracle at St. Anna
Book of Eli
No country for Old Men
Most of those you've probably seen but they're all pretty awesome.

I would be great if you guys could help me fix this list. Could you help me find the mystery movies (I hate mystery movies) and if you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.
Define mystery movies and why do you hate them? Like movies with a surprise ending? Or whodunit, detective stuff?
Lesser Known mystery movies (Detective Style) everyone should see:
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
The Brothers Bloom
Chinatown (lesser known for our generation)
I'd add right off the top of my head movies I think you might not have seen:
City of Lost Children
My Favorite Year
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Ferris Bueller's Day Off (if you haven't seen it)
Pandorum (little scattered, and initially underwhelming, but was surprised how often I thought of it later)
Every Coen Brothers movie ever.
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
Lost Highway (really anything by Lynch, but it's an aquired taste)
Anything of Quentin Tarantino's you haven't seen yet
Anything of Martin Scorsese's you haven't seen yet
The Godfather movies.
And I'm starting to reach, and I'm unsure what you've seen so I'll stop
!! Skip Eight Crazy Nights. It's just an enormous piece of shit, and I've sat through some shit. But then again I hated Scary Movie, and all it's spawn. It just seems so lazy. Although if you like that kinda humor see: Airplane! Know your roots.
I've been watching a lot of Korean films lately, they're always really gritty, violent, and awesome
Oldboy (or anything by Chan-Wook Park)
A Bittersweet Life
Also I don't remember if it was on your list, but as far as detective movies go I'd definitely recommend Brick. It's a great neo-noir, and one of my favorite movies of all time.
I actually have the Hitchhiker's Guide (bought it last summer), and I'll probably read it once I finish the Bourne Trilogy.
I personally own at least 200 movies on DVD, probably another 100 as burned copies, and another 100 at least on my external.
To Ben - Oldboy is part of a "vengeance trilogy". If you haven't seen them, I suggest watching "sympathy for mr vengeance" and "sympathy for lady vengeance".
Ive mentioned some of these multiple times before; but they werent (all) on your list so here we go again.
Sleuth (adaptation of a play, great acting from Jude Law and Michael Caine)
American History x
Primer(great low-budget sci-fi psychological thriller drama something)
Thank you for Smoking (Great fun comedy, light entertainment with a very original story without lame jokes)
Everything Is Illuminated(heartwarming comedic drama)
Gone Baby Gone (neo-noir crime drama)
Sin City (part two is in the make, cant wait)
Man on Fire (Action with a great story)
I like to go through lists like this to find good movies

Yes I have, I've seen all of Chan-Wook Parks movies, he's an amazing director :P
Oldboy's just the best out of the trilogy IMO.

Pan's Labyrinth. Seven Pounds. The Begotten. Up. Mary and Max.
Ponyo, Princess Mononoke, Laputa: Castle in the Sky and Tales from Earthsea or something similar to that.
I like Studio Ghibli :D
These are just the movies i've seen; aside from Howl's moving castle, which you said you'd already seen.
I ran. I ran until my muscles burned, and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

I'm looking forward more, however, to buying it tomorrow (no money today =P).

I don't have a power cord yet to use my tv and my ps3 at the same time, probably going over to a friends house to use his tv so I can buy it tonight.
I'm pretty excited. I don't know too many people with 360's so I haven't gotten to play it yet.
I'm going to go ahead and start up a new conversation just cus
so where is everyone going this year? back to school or something different? I realize some of you may be working people, if so thats cool I suppose.
I myself am pretty fucked because I may not be doing the thing I want to be doing and Im definately not going back to school yet. I guess that means a lot of time to improve my art i dunno

Back to school, but I switched studies. Im now in the Premaster Philosophy programme (and finishing up my Bachelor International Business administration). I have only had a few classes (today was my second day) but I can tell allready that its a much better fit. The classes are about subjects that actually interest me and that make me want to know more about them. Besides that the classes are all a lot smaller (50 students instead of 200) which make the lectures much more interactive. So yeah, Im happy.
