My second movie watched in 2013. The first was Batman - The Dark Knight Rises.
We'll give Stardust 9*/10. Great special effects; a cute romance for Liz to get into; and of course, the genius of Neil Gaiman behind it all. Michelle Pfeiffer does a good job, and the two young'uns are okay, including Claire Danes, who is a fine Gynneth Paltrow lookalike. But Robert DeNiro frankly steals the show.
I read the book back in October 2011, and gave it 9½*/10. No surprise there, Gaiman is a frickin' fantastic author. The movie is almost - but not quite - as good.
