Excerpt: It is important, if one enjoys the art of film, to occasionally see an awful movie. This gives balance to your opinion, gives you an idea of what truly bad cinema looks like, and provides some wonderful unintentional laughs. I say this because it's one of the few good things about Stardust. It will give one a much better appreciation for better films, and even mediocre films. Stardust is about a shooting star that has landed on (presumably) earth.
Excerpt: Young Tristan (Charlie Cox) wants to impress the woman he loves, the beautiful Victoria (Sienna Miller). He promises to go and find her the falling star they have both seen and to bring it to her for her birthday and he has a week to do just that. Little does he know that the star is not a star at all, but a celestial beauty named Yvaine (Claire Danes) and that a greedy witch and the King's feuding sons are also after her with sinister intentions.
Summary: Matthew Vaughn is a talented director and he has a talented cast at his disposal in telling this entertaining adventure story. The film has a definite "Princess Bride" attitude to it - a mixture of visuals and action-adventure style fight scenes and sarcastic and witty humor. Robert De Niro is the scene-stealer for me, in a role that is reminiscent of the crazy character he played in Gilliam's Brazil - so far out of the Bobby De Niro box that it's a fun and fresh...
Excerpt: Very good Adventure movie! maybe it is not something for adults, but the young at heart surely loves this film! i planned to watch this movie because of Matthew Vaughn after watching his Kick-ass, which i extremely liked! I must say that Vaughn did a good job and also his production team. i was confused in the story, not the flow but the impact of the story to me. I didn't know if i like it, i enjoy every part of it and at the same time saying "such a common adventure..
Summary: Everyone loved this movie, but I just didn't see it. I hated every second of sitting in the theatre, listening to the awful dialogue and watching the most horrid of performances by Michelle Pfeiffer, Claire Danes, Jason Flemyng, and yes, even the great Robert De Niro. I laughed little, felt for the characters less, and suggested this film to nobody I knew.
Summary: A really interesting fantasy story. Though the movie is not as good as the book it is still really well done. The characters are very fun and the special effects are well done. A great modern fairy tale for the whole family. The best part of the story is the ghosts.
Summary: This is one of the few movies that I actually like better than the book. The book was awesome, don't get me wrong, but the movie was just so reminiscent of The Princess Bride, another movie I think I like better than the book, that I just couldn't help but adore it. The movie is far funnier than the novel, there's no doubt about that, but it does it without completely ruining the integrity of the story.
