Going Postal

Today’s movie is Going Postal. Its a made for TV movie but a movie nonetheless.

Based on Terry Pratchett’s 33rd Discworld novel involves a skillful con artist Moist Von Lipwig (Richard Coyle) who finds the tables turned and it’s he himself who conned into becoming the Ankh-Morpork Postmaster General. A position that has not been filled in years.

Having read the book Going Postal it is difficult to fully enjoy this movie because i know how the story should be. But, having said that, this is an enjoyable movie. If you enjoy the Terry Prachett books then you should still like this. Even if you’ve never read the books then you will enjoy this. Unfortunately I don’t think you can buy this on DVD yet but there are a few torrents and other places to download it.

Recommendation: Buy (Figuratively)
