This is a movie review of Going Postal by Terry Pratchett. Moist Von Lipwig (Richard Coyle) is a con man gleefully fleecing the people of Ankh- Morpork. From painting horses to make them look like stallions to causing a banking crash, Moist is looking out for #1 and never looking back at the consequences. When he’s finally caught and sentenced to death, the ruler of Ankh-Morpork, Lord Vetinari (Charles Dance) decides to give Moist another chance. Moist will reopen the defunct post office or die, there are no other choices. Faced with thousands of undelivered letters, a haunted post-office and employees who are quite willing if not very able, Moist must battle ruthless competitor, Reacher Gilt (David Suchet) and potential lady love Adora Loveheart (Claire Foy) to bring the post office back to its former glory.

Towel Day has been an annual tradition celebrated on May 25th to honor the work and remember the life of author Douglas Adams. Best known for probably the best science fiction book ever written, “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy,” Mr. Adams had a career that would endear him to the soul of the even the most casual reader and science fiction connoisseur. His work was imbued with a humor that was rare and an idea that life is to precious to waste. Hold your towel close today and if you’re looking for a really wonderful read, be sure to check out my list of recommendations below. Thank you, as always, to Rangewoman Inc for her tireless work in helping me format this post and be sure to check out her page for special events and interviews to celebrate the day.
