If you're not familiar with Stardust, it's based on an illustrated novel by Neil Gaiman and it is a pure fairy tale in the tradition of pre-Tolkien English fantasy, only with a lot more wit than you'd get from Lord Dunsany or the Brothers Grimm. In some ways it's like The Princess Bride and in others it's nothing at all like it. As Neil Gaiman said, "I don't think it has much in common with The Princess Bride, they're at present the only two things in that genre."
It's funny, exciting, romantic, thrilling, and delightful. Claire Danes, who's supposed to be dead to me, is undeniably perfect as the fallen star. And the male lead, Charlie Cox, is destined for a lot of boyfriend lists. Seriously, ya'll, this guy is CUTE. Go see the movie for him, if for nothing else. Robert De Niro appears as you've never seen him before, Ricky Gervais has a wonderful small part, and the whole thing's narrated by Ian McKellen. What more do you want?
On a completely unrelated note, I've been mainlining Jericho episodes and am now thoroughly and completely hooked. Please direct me to a support group.
