A couple of days ago, I watched “Stardust“, featuring Charlie Cox, Claire Danes, Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert De Niro and Sienna Miller.

I’d heard about the movie on TV a number of times, but there wasn’t much that pulled me in to see it. But then a friend at work told me he had seen it and that he actually liked it. So when I got the chance to see it, I was like: why not.

It turned out to actually be quite a nice movie, that I enjoyed. It’s sort of a light fairy tale about a young man who makes a promise to his beloved that he’ll retrieve a fallen star by venturing into the magical realm that lies beyond a wall on the borders of their small village, finding himself on a fantastic journey and adventure with stars, witches, pirates and more.

I really like fantasy movies like this one and “Big Fish” for example, and how they take you on this amazing ride through a wonderful world of magic and imagination.

It was good seeing Michelle Pfeiffer back in action, she was very good in this movie; and Robert De Niro was really funny.

I think it’s a nice movie worth seeing if you’re into the genre. I think I’d give it an overall score of:

StarStarStarStarNo Star
