According to some young guy's beard chart, I am mildly trustworthy. Meanwhile, Ron Mael, keyboard player for the band Sparks, has gradually gone from the most disastrous one can possibly be to slightly less disastrous.

Oh yeah, also:

Katy Perry's more tolerable than Taylor Swift.

Oh god, only Katy Perry, surely. I'm not proclaiming myself to be her biggest fan, but she looks like Zooey Deschanel. Taylor Swift, on the other hand, has a weird face and everything about Miley Cyrus is terrible.

She looks nothing like Zooey. Also, I had no idea who any of them were except for Miley. I guess I'm just not that into pop.

They look exactly alike.

Edit: I'm also not arguing about their personalities, I'm arguing about their talent and appearances.

Hair stylings aside, their faces are rather different.

Arg, ambiguously worded text. I meant that I had no visual representation of the other two other than Miley, so I could not say who they were. I have heard of them, can't say I know any of their stuff, and I despise what I've heard of Katy Perry's (which would be what I hear from other people's radios, as I usually listen to my iPod, or lacking that a free-form radio station, or if there's something too out there on that station, a sadly generic rock station.)

Me too, Ian, but mostly Zooey Deschanel.

I listen to the radio a lot, so I mainly hear pop drivel. I'm not proud of it, but it's the way things are.

Zooey was in Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, right? right? I think. Oh man, I'm horrible at these things.

I've never seen it, but she was in 500 Days of Summer. It was okay, a bit like a more colorful, less neurotic Annie Hall.

Well, I started watching it with my family when I was little, and either my mom or my brother didn't enjoy it so we turned it off.

The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie was one of the suckiest pieces of suck to ever suck up the big screen.

It did a very good job of following the plot of the novel. But as anyone who has read the novel can tell you, the plot was only a convenient framework on which Douglas Adams hung the humor. And unfortunately the movie managed to lose almost all of the humor. It just felt like I was being drug from one plot point to the next by an uncaring automaton. Rating: ★.

and yet, douglas adams wrote a large portion of the script that made the screen version before he died....

As I understand it he also wrote the scripts for the BBC radio and TV series, which I hear are quite good. Which goes to show you more is involved than simply the script. Personally I think the director concentrated too hard on having a coherent plot (the radio and TV series are infamous for their inconsistencies) and in editing it down to a manageable movie length managed to edit out the funny bits. Doesn't matter how good the script is if the director and actors don't "get it".
