Until a couple of weeks ago I had never heard of M.J. Simpson. Then, all over my friends list, people started mentioning his review of HHGTTG, which, I gathered, held up its hands in horror at the new movie. 'Oh dear', I thought, 'but I shan't go and read it until I've seen the thing myself.' Then there started to be a bit of a backlash, with various people whose views I respect going to see the movie and pronouncing it alright: not, perhaps as funny as other incarnations, but acceptable as another variant, making allowances for the differing tastes of an international audience, and accepting some concessions to the constraints of a movie format. That seemed a bit more hopeful, and I was pleased.
