{5/5} “Victoria, for your hand in marriage I’d cross the wall and I’d bring you back that fallen star.”

Stardust, released in 2007

Tristan goes through the wall that separates England from Stormhold. He finds that a fallen star has taken the form of a woman who calls herself Yvaine. Meanwhile Lamia, a witch who will stop at nothing, is also tracking the star. And two princes vying to be king, Primus and Septimus, are looking for the amulet that the star has.

It’s one of my favourite fantasy movies. It’s epic, has perfect actors, and it’s very funny.

The three witches are hilarious, as are the ghosts of the dead princes.

The dazzling visuals will make you wish you’d seen it on the big screen.

Peter O’Toole and Ricky Gervais have small but delightful parts. Ian McKellen is the narrator.

Much of the movie will have you on the edge of your seat.

Based on the book by Neil Gaiman (Neverwhere).

Stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Claire Danes, and Robert De Niro. Directed by Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class). I like the energetic music by Ilan Eshkeri a lot — my favourite track is “Septimus.”

This is probably the 3rd time I’ve seen it.
