My favorite thing about Hitchikers Guide is that it’s been a book, radio play, tv show, movie, video game, and in every instance Douglas Adams’ changed the story a little bit, so there isn’t any “canon”.

I always just respond: "yeah, hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy," and the look on their faces I swear.

I was reading the big book in Highschool when I was always reading and walking.

I forget the chapter I was on, but it was talking about the issue with time travel is the grammar and went on for like 2 or more paragraphs about that before moving on in the story.

I looked up to step up a curb and then back down.

And it was the time travel paragraphs again.

For a solid 5 minutes I thought Douglas Adams had just copypasted the same paragraph in 2 parts to give a "you just traveled back in time while reading" experience.

Then I realized the page had just flipped back when I looked up.

It's so weird how BTTF doesn't often come to mind in the "trilogy" conversation. I think it's because the concept of a trilogy always seems to conjure visions of grandiose and epic films, whereas BTTF is more of a lighthearted action comedy. In all honesty though, the consistent quality of all 3 movies is above and beyond what almost all other film series achieve. Plus it all ties together so well, especially 1 and 2.

A lot of people feel like 2 and 3 aren’t as good. I think they get campier and more repetitive but I almost love the sequels more for it

Everestkid

3 is weird because it feels like they wanted to make a Western but they needed to somehow tie it into the other Back to the Future movies. Although I did like the central plot point of being unable to drive the DeLorean because there wouldn't be a gas station in the area for decades.

I suppose I like 2 best because it's the most intricate of the three - 1 and 3 are just "go back in time, fix the thing that went wrong, go back to the future." oh that's why it's called that /s 2's got the actual future and alternate timeline fuckery going on, plus it ties in really well with 1.

WillemDafoesHugeCock

The first movie is my favorite but the third has some of my favorite gags in the entire series. The sperm center scene is one of the best in the trilogy. The prison riot scene is solid gold. The scene where Jane is breaking up with Frank and everything moves impossibly quickly kills me every time, the way the cab driver checks his watch impatiently is perfect. And that's not even mentioning the one liners.

"Like a midget at a urinal, I was going to have to stay on my toes."

"Kinky. But I like my sex the way I play basketball, one on one with as little dribbling as possible."

"Rocco could tell from my little escapade in the shower that I was well endowed... with courage."

This kind of movie is why when people complain about some single element lacking in a movie (like when people say they can’t watch a movie without a plot), or “this movie didn’t need to be made”, I think it’s all silliness.

A great director and talented actors with a good crew can make a great movie about literally anything. Watching paint dry? Sure why not. It’s possible if someone has the vision.

Because it is one of the single greatest film endings of all time & hands-down the greatest ending of any romance.

Just incredible shit. That final scene & the entire walk up the stairs. It’s perfect. The first time you watch it, it has you at the edge of your seat the way a fucking thriller does.

So glad I'm not the only person who immediately went here.

I've watched a LOT of films, but this is one of the very few I really believed the actors were in love.

The dialogue between Hawke and Deploy was so realistic and believable, watching it felt a little like you were intruding on something personal.

I've been single for a long time, mostly because I've had a string of long/bad relationships that messed with me and my willingness to let another person into my life.

Before Sunrise literally made me want to find love again. That whole movie just pressed all the right buttons of what it's like to instantly hit it off with someone.

I think for me Before Sunset was what hit me. Delpy’s character was so light in explaining the heavy topics. The one part where she said:

Celine: I was fine, until I read your fucking book! It stirred shit up, you know? It reminded me how genuinely romantic I was, how I had so much hope in things, and now it's like, I don't believe in anything that relates to love. I don't feel things for people anymore. In a way, I put all my romanticism into that one night, and I was never able to feel all this again. Like, somehow this night took things away from me and I expressed them to you, and you took them with you! It made me feel cold, like if love wasn't for me!

That hurt. But also makes me feel wonderful to hope that one day that can happen again to me. Love comes so unexpectedly that I’m glad it is so random because otherwise we’d all be failures.

Came to say these films. Funny thing is, I found out about these movies in 2013 while I was on a train in Austria. Hawke’s The Purge was coming out soon so I fell down an Ethan Hawke Wikipedia rabbit hole and Before Midnight had recently come out or was coming out soon so I read about it and discovered it was the 3rd in a set of movies each filmed 10 years apart. Just thought it was bizarre I found out about it while on a train riding through Austria considering the first one started on a train in Austria.

Anyhoo, for solid trilogies, this is at least in the top 5.

Linklater has a way of pulling incredibly lifelike performances out of his actors. His director's trademark is that his movies feel totally unscripted, it's almost baffling to learn that his actors are reading their lines word for word. I used to think Waking Life was a documentary. All actors. Even Alex Jones auditioned for his part and just happened to be perfectly cast, he was nobody at the time.

We were due one this year! I mean I'm glad they're not forcing one, but I was enjoying this whole "7 up but it's a couple" that they had going.

Sunrise starts with Hawke and Delpy laughing at a middle-aged couple bickering. In Midnight, they've become the bickering couple. A pretty perfect way to button the story up.

About 10 years ago I heard about Blade Runner being a great movie so I downloaded it. Turns out I downloaded Sling Blade instead. Not what I was expecting at all but I kept watching to see how things would change into this high pace action packed dystopian future. It obviously didn't and continued with Billy Bob going "mhmmmm" a bunch. Not a bad movie but I always laugh at that mix up.

My favorite line from the trilogy. Followed by

This trilogy doesn't get enough love. Once upon a time in Mexico is a lot better than what many give it credit for. Come on, where else can you get a line like "Are you a Mexi-can or a Mexi-Can't?"
