May 19th at 12:01 am was a long awaited moment. It was the moment that Star Wars: Return of the Sith was to start. I sat in the movie theatre with friends and family, an island of something closer to reality than the many Jedi’s, Wookies, Vaders and even a few Ewoks that surrounded us. At least, I really want to hope that we are closer to reality than they.
I just returned from the movie about 42, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy for those that have not seen it or read the books. Having read the books, I was eagerly anticipating the slightly watered down rendition on the big screen. I was not disappointed. While the story was tweaked a bit, and the smartest creatures on the Earth had a new attitude, it was still well worth watching.
