Stardust

StardustStardust isn't just an amazing movie. It's this generation's Princess Bride.

True love, sword fights, chases, steampunk-ish flying pirates, witches, magic, kidnapped princesses, unlikely heroes, humor, excitement, and a delightful quest. This movie has it all, and if the kind of movie you're going to watch over and over again on DVD.

I've been hearing good things about the book by Neil Gaiman for quite some time, but haven't had a chance to read it yet. And I'd heard tons of great reviews, including from people who loved the book, so I was expecting a great movie. But Stardust still managed to blow away my expectations. I loved it!

Noble Collection or our friends at QMX had damned well be paying attention to this one. There are so many props from this movie that I'd love to be able to buy.

  1. We tried to go see it again last night but didn’t finish dinner in time, so we saw Bourne Ultimatum instead. I like the Bourne movies, but I think I would have rather seen Stardust. But it’s okay, we can try again tonight :o)

  2. Wasn’t it just lovely? I’ve been defending it at a publishing blog against an author who claims that Ladyhawke was far better.

    If I had time, I’d go see it again, and it’s already on my to-buy list the moment the DVD comes out. This movie just makes me happy.
