Review:

I remember when this movie came out. Not because of a trailer or poster or any kind of advertising, but because the $1.50 theater I worked at got it. That’s the only reason I knew it existed. I have no idea what the marketing department was doing with this one, but they really dropped the ball.

Amazing cast, stellar source material, and a great movie. It’s one of those movies I’ve watched so many times that I sometimes use it to fall asleep to, because I can close my eyes and see the story in my mind. Love it.

Even now as I scan the IMDB page the order of cast is crazy. Charlie Cox and Claire Danes are main characters but so is Michelle Pfeiffer and she is way down there. It’s just bizarre. At least she made the poster.

Anyway, it’s a beautiful, fanciful story that I highly recommend.

5/5

Side note- That dorky looking dude in the pic above is now Daredevil.

  1. Nice to read your thoughts on one of my favourites.
    I found something to take delight in from every character in Stardust.. From Pfeiffer’s over the top witch to Claire Dane’s sweet hearted/romantic star. I could easily mention something for every character. I think I’m going to have to re-watch and review this myself. Thanks for the reminder.
