Yes. The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy is a trilogy of 5 books (you heard me) by the late Douglas Adams. He also wrote for Monty Python. It is some of the funniest material ever written and focuses on the quest for the question to life, the universe and everything, the answer to which is forty-two. Everything would have been fine if the computer running the 10 million year program to figure it all out hadn't been demolished 5 minutes before finishing the job, in order to make way for a hyperspace bypass. That computer was the Earth. The story centers on the only survivor, Arthur Dent, who was taken along by a friend of his who happened to be an alien on Earth doing research for Earth's entry in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (which read "Mostly harmless"), when he managed to hitch a ride on the ships that destroyed the Earth. The ships "hung in the sky in exactly the same way that bricks don't." That's Adams writing for you. Confused? Just wait.....Originally posted by eugenefl
Wow...that got me pretty good. If you're watching this trailer for the first time, be sure to maximize your media viewer to "fullscreen" and turn the volume to a comfortable or slightly louder volume. Looks like a good movie.
Any idea what genre? Comedy? Sci-Fi?
Because AVI isn't really a video format it's a file format that acts as a wrapper for a video format. The video format that's being wrapped determines the decoder that is required.Originally posted by Justin Horne
I agree about the avi thing. I was actually surprised when my mac could play it. Generally avi's are a no-no...I cringe when I see them and just want mpeg...
What really bugs me is that a few avis will play, but most won't. Any idea why?
