Stardust Satisfies

I just got back from seeing Stardust. Now that was an adventure/fantasy/romance movie that has everything. Pirates, evil witches, royal quests, ghosts, unicorns, and cross-dressers could make for a messy movie, but Stardust manages to keep plowing along to create a fun, action-packed movie.

I’ll be posting my full review here in about two weeks, but I have to say that Michelle Pfeiffer makes a great villain. She was mean in Hairspray, but in Stardust she just drips villainy.  Charlie Cox is a sweetie as the innocent young hero, Tristan, while Claire Danes is her usual excellent self as the fallen star, Yvaine. With a cast that includes Robert De Niro, Peter O’Toole, Ricky Gervais, and Rupert Everett, the movie doesn’t lack for other star quality.

Stardust is hard to describe, but I can say one thing about it –it offers a fun afternoon at the movies.
