    There's a reason I always tell people that this is my favorite movie: after they undoubtedly respond with a look of "????" I get to launch into a list of reasons as to why this movie is so great. The acting is phenomenal (I'm so glad Charlie Cox has starred in Daredevil and that his talents are finally being recognized), the chemistry between Tristan and Yvaine is so believable, and it's such a fun fantasy romp. It's as easy to…

    Stardust is a really fun fairytale with a cool concept and awesome action.

    Despite being a little longer than it needs to be and featuring all the cliches that usually come with this kind of story, STARDUST is a lot of fun. It's THE PRINCESS BRIDE for a 21st century audience, a comparison made all the more apt by the deft hand with which Matthew Vaughn directs. It's an accomplishment for only his second film, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I'd be really interested to see how this film changes…

    The book was vastly better, although that's a common complaint with most book-turned-film situations.

    Despite separate elements of the movie being good - acting, music, scenery, and so on - the plot severely failed to live up to expectations. A lot of things were changed or edited, and the movie felt unusually rushed. It was as if they wanted to keep everything from the book but mashed everything together with reckless abandon, and changed important plot elements to accommodate conclusions…

    My biggest issue with this film was that because it had so many different plots going it made the whole film feel very hollow. When I watch fantasy movies I like to be sucked in and finish the movie feeling like I just left a fantasy world. The only reason I am giving it 3 stars is because the last 30 minutes were so good!! I feel like if they took away the unnecessary subplots and shaved time off the film (it was over 2 hours) it definitely would've pulled me in more.

    Charlie Cox was so darn cute though! Damn that man.

    A fantasy whose plentiful charms exude from every frame, Matthew Vaughn's "Stardust" is swashbuckling and romantic delight. Colorful, contemporary, and, still, appealingly classic, Vaughn's film triumphs with its wit, heart, and high energy sense of adventure.

    Based on Neil Gaiman's novel, "Stardust" is a classic fairy tale with a modern heartbeat. Mixing witches, ghosts, falling stars, and star-crossed lovers, the narrative allows recognized fantasy tropes to collide in the most contemporary fashion. At its core is a story about the…

    The sword fight at the end with the witch controlling the opponent like a voodoo marionette was worth the price of admission.

    Fun adult fantasy that subverts royalty and the hero's journey, and not a butt sex scene in sight!

    Holy moly!!!!!!!!!!!!! This one came completely out oif left field for me.

    Knowing nothing of the movie, I assumed it's just some light fairy tale movie. And it is that, but also so much more. This is like a fairy tale Galore! I swear the guy who wrote this was on more drugs than the guy who wrote Alice in Wonderland (and we all know that guy was tripping balls).

    It's all over the place with the story, but it…
