The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Friday 28 March 2008 at 09:15 am The Hitchiker's Guide to the GalaxyBBC seems to have a graphic edition of the famous Infocom text adventure (or "interactive fiction" as they are called these days) The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on their website! Awesome!

In fact, there are two versions of the game there, differing only in graphics. It's great how BBC pays homage to one of their most famous and popular radio plays.

Now.. when is YLE going to add Knalli ja Sateenvarjo (the excellent Finnish version of The Men from the Ministry) into their podcasting list?

The Phone

Thursday 27 March 2008 at 2:01 pm "This is an automated message.

This telephone can be used to transport to other places.

To be transported to another place you must lift the handset and dial a number."


The PhoneThe Phone is a peculiar little game; your mission is to find the correct numbers to dial on a magical telephone, that is actually a device for teleportation. Each number can be found by exploring the presented view and interacting with the objects available. The game is fascinating, compelling, and visually very attractive. Good fun, but awfully short!

Lalli

Tuesday 18 March 2008 at 1:26 pm We have a new family member: an 8 weeks old Finnish Lapphund called Lalli. He eats, sleeps, plays, sleeps, pees, sleeps, poos, sleeps, bites everything, sleeps, runs around, sleeps, chases our feet, sleeps, and sleeps. And when he's not doing any of that, he's sleeping.

Such an adorable little thing, don't you think?

(Wondering where the name came from? This should explain it all!)

Sweeney Todd

Tuesday 18 March 2008 at 1:09 pm Sweeney ToddWe went to see Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of the Fleet Street the other day. Kasia knew the story from before, while I knew only that the film was directed by Tim Burton and that it is starred by Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter. Seemed promising, as the trio has excelled before in for example Corpse Bride and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Well, the movie wasn't too bad. It was definitely entertaining, the sets and dresses great-looking in their glum black&white way (with some splashes of bright red here and there), and the actors all sang their parts surprisingly well. However, despite looking exactly like any other Tim Burton movie, it lacked the soul and spirit of his earlier works like Edward Scissorhands, Nightmare before Christmas, and Corpse Bride.

I believe it comes down to the screenplay; in his best works Tim Burton has been involved with the story and the settings by himself, while in Sweeney Todd he has been assigned to work on someone elses script. It seems to me that since he had a fixed story to work on, he didn't manage to fit his soul into the film as he has managed before. In Sleepy Hollow and Big Fish he did do great with the script, but this time the effort fell a bit short.

Anyhow, as said earlier, the movie is entertaining and certainly a sweet treat for fans of the story, Johnny Depp, and/or Burtonesque settings.
