    China: Score victory

    They've just over taken Italy and will soon over take the UK which will put them in a respectable fourth place.

    You may rest easy. :) Had the idea many many years before hearing the HHGG on radio, then reading the books. I didn't see the television version (didn't own a television) and have no interest in seeing the film version. It didn't sound appealing to me, and I don't visit theatres in any case.

    The only good thing about the movie is the initial song with the dolphins. After that, it looks more like Galaxy Quest than HHGG. The humour level went down quite a notch with the author's death.

    For sure. We still have Pratchett though.

    Hem, pardon the side-track! All done. :)

    I agree that it wasn't really 'good', but rating it from a movie point of view it was a lot better then 99% of the major/blockbuster junk that comes out of Hollywood each year.

    Not a masterpiece if you look at what the original source, or sourceS really, but as a standalone movie it was pretty enjoyable. :D

    Obviously the barbs. (Which explains why there's no end to it, exept maybe for global warming.)

    Those are far from cultural assets. Those are Great Merchants bringing home the bacon. Hollywood, the NBA and Disney are America's attempts at "culture."

    Good, I was wondering how many posts it would take to start bashing the US.

    I've been trying to figure that one out too.

    I mean, even if my country put's men on Mars, it'll be through an international effort rather than an all out unilateral thing, and it isn't like it'll be a perminent presence or anything... not yet anyway. And everything we do in space today is heavily dependent on Russia... so yeah I really don't get the space victory idea at all.

    If anything, the U.S.'s score would be declining rapidly while India and China's economies grow.

    Do you really think that everyone mentioning a space victory means that they think country X will do exactly what is in cIV?

    roman domination victory easily. Or maybe gengis Khan won an extermination victory, or china a time victory, or greece a cultural victory.
