We went to see the movie Stardust last night, starring Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Robert DeNiro, among others. It was written by Neil Gaiman, and is possible the best movie I’ve seen in the last five years. Way better than the Lord of the Rings or Narnia or any other of the big-budget fantasy movies that have come out recently. It has a complicated but tightly written plot with excellent storytelling and character development. There are comedic moments that don’t feel like they’ve been injected just to get the audience to laugh, but instead flow with the narrative. It’s all quite good, and if you don’t go see it while it’s in the theaters, you’ll regret it.
Go. Tonight. See the movie!
