    Synopsis


    Stardust
    A charmingly naïve boy from the English village of Wall travels to a magical, mythical world in search of the falling star that will help him win the heart of his true love in this fantasy adventure starring Charlie Cox, Claire Danes, Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ricky Gervais, and Sienna Miller. For hundreds of years the massive cobblestone barrier that surrounds the sleepy English hamlet of Wall has kept the citizens of the village safe and secure from the malevolent supernatural forces that stir just outside its perimeter. When dashing Tristan Thorne (Cox) promises the fairest girl in the village, Victoria (Miller), that he will prove his love by bestowing her with a genuine falling star, his daring mission sends him on an adventure far outside the comfortable confines of Wall. In order to find the fallen star, Tristan will have to ascend the wall and venture deep into the forbidden heart of the fantastical realm known as Stormhold. Upon discovering that the meteorite he sought was in fact a beautiful girl named Yvaine (Danes), who has stumbled though space and is now being pursued by the King of Stormhold's (Peter O'Toole) sons (who long to use her cosmic powers to lay claim to the throne), Tristan vows to protect the otherworldly visitor at all costs. But the king's sons aren't the only ones in search of the luminous Yvaine; fearsome witch Lamia (Pfeiffer) has become convinced that the young girl's power can help her to achieve eternal youth and beauty. As Tristan makes his way through Stormhold on a mission to bring the star back to Wall, he will encounter a series of spectacular characters and creatures that will lead him to a fate he never imagined. Layer Cake director Matthew Vaughn serves as director and co-screenwriter for this tale of witches and pirates adapted from the novel by fantasy icon Neil Gaiman, who also produces. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A King some Witches and a girl from the stars

      Posted
      JimG944

      4 of 5 stars for the fantasy adventure movie Stardust. A really nice fantasy movie was fun to watch. A young man lives in a town that borders a magic place; a stone wall is the dividing line. As the young man escapes his town he finds many wonders in the magic land. The movie addresses a couple of generations of time and events. In the future generation, an old king about to die needs to name one of his seven sons as new king. They are sent on a quest. Oh, and the sons have a habit of killing each other. And then there is this girl or is she a star? Not really sure. Yes, a little confusing, but, a funny and nice story. Very well made with a good look and feel. Special effects are well integrated. All in all, a fun, cute, interesting movie with a couple of plot surprises. Well worth the time to watch. Recommended for teens and up. BTW, Michelle Pfeiffer is still beautiful and one of my favorites--she plays on of the witches (oh, did I mention there are witches?).

      If you are a book-over-the-movie-every-time person, you may not agree, but the movie grabs your interest from the first scene and doesn't let go, which I didn't get from the book. The relationship between the main characters grows pretty quickly in retrospect, but you are so caught up in the story and adventure, that you just don't care! Most of the casting was superb, with large performances without being too over the top, which added to the overall magic of the film. If you liked The Princess Bride, you should give this movie a try. You almost want to root out loud for the hero in several places, and revel when the bad guys get theirs!

      Great Escape for a Few Hours

      Posted

      I was intrigued by the casting of Danes, De Niro & Pfeiffer, who was cast as an evil witch, acting along with other good thespians in more of a supporting role. I was impressed with the hero who I'd never seen before, & how he was able to hold his own when paired with someone like De Niro who was something of a scene-stealer ! Pfeiffer's role was dark, & well-played by her as she sought to end the hero's quest. I couldn't help but be charmed by Dane's ethereal quality & wit as she played the heroine. Miller was put on a pedestal by the hero, who set off on a quest to find a "star" for her, but ended up finding much more in the journey.

      If you are a fan of The Princess Bride, you will love this movie! It's a fun fairytale with fantastic characters. Michelle Pfeiffer as Lumia is a perfect evil witch - she commands attention the entire time she's on screen. I also love Robert De Niro as the flamboyant Captain Shakespeare whose crew captures lightning from the sky. The ghosts of dead princes are complete scene-stealers and provide hilarious commentary as a peanut gallery of sorts. Stardust has action, adventure, romance, comedy, drama.... I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

      i saw this movie on opening weekend with my 8 year old daughter. the theater we went to was packed for the showing of stardust. i noticed that my daughters eyes were glued to the screen and that she was laughing at every funny thing that happened to tristan and Yvaine. we both just loved Robert De Niro's rendition of the pirate captain and we both thought that Michelle Pfeiffer as the old witch Lamia was really great acting. if you do not get this movie you will be missing out on one of the best movies of 2007.

      Super cute movie

      I first saw this movie last summer with a bunch of girlfriends and I LOVED it! It reminds me a lot of an old favorite of mine (The Princess Bride) but not enough to turn my roommate off of it (she's not so keen on Carey Elwes). The plot is suspenseful and sweet but the ending is a little bit predictable, though I can appreciate how the screenwriters arrived at it. The graphics, cinematography, and animation were very well done, in my opinion. Overall, it's a great movie that neither my best friends nor I can get enough of!

      To put it simply, this movie surprised me as to how good it was. I was surfing TV and saw this on HBO. I started watching it and was blown away by the plot! Its a beautiful adult fairy tale, with great actors such as Robert Dinero and Claire Danes. This has moments that will make you laugh and almost bring you to the brink of tears, though I never cry at movies! I never got into Harry Potter movies, but I believe this is the best fictional movie I have ever seen. Highly recommended!

      An Endearing Fairy Tale

      I thought this movie was very entertaining. It was a cute little fairy tale, but not your typical boy meets girl, obviously. Who would have ever guessed that stars were are ctually people? Very neat idea, Mr. Neil Most of the actors were up and coming but that doesn't matter. I especially loved Robert De Niro. His character was hillairous! It is truly an adorable film that is great for everyone. You'll be glad you bought it.
