“Narrator: A philosopher once asked, “Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?” Pointless, really…”Do the stars gaze back?” Now that’s a question.“- Neil GaimanLisa and I saw Stardust over the weekend. Trips to the movies will be harder to come by once the baby arrives so we are trying to fit a few in whilst we can, next trip out it is likely to be the other Neil Gaiman title, Beowulf. It’s a while since I read the novel so I can’t compare in minutiae with the book (who goes to the movies expecting a “book experience” any-way?). The casting was great, I especially enjoyed Robert de Niro as Captain Shakespeare, and Neil Gaimans story more than survived the adaptation. It’s a genre I enjoy and Stardust is up there with the best, not so quirky as The Princess Bride but more risque than Willow. Overall, a double thumbs up, go see it.
