"Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" (2005) has a lot missing compared to the "original" TV series. There are no mentions of Eccentrica Galumbits, Marvin's painful diodes, the restaurant at the end of the universe, Zaphod Beeblebrox's two heads, fear sensitive sunglasses to mention but a few. I liked the newer Trillian but intensely disliked the happy ending with her and Arthur falling for each other, Marvin was not depressed enough and the new Zaphod Beeblebrox was plain irritating. It feels as if the film follows recent trends, seeming to act under the assumption that if enough effects are thrown into the mix it will make up for its shortcomings. I found the film uninspiring and nowhere near the kind of quality of the original... a wasted opportunity.
