Stardust rocks!

Today, I should’ve written entries for sixth episodes of Ninomiya-kun, CLANNAD and Shana II, but instead I went out the whole day, blew RM1000 (okay, half of it wasn’t mine) and watched the Stardust movie.

This post will primarily be about Stardust, since it was the most enjoyable thing today really. The movie is definitely the best of all the (oh say, 3 or 4) movies I’ve watched this year so far, and I was actually quite expecting it. It surely didn’t disappoint, thankfully. It had endearing characters and a well-done fantasy setting that’s not too cliched nor too complicated to understand in the short running time of the movie. It also had some really awesome dialogue and really well done humor all round, especially Captain Shakespeare, god he was a real riot. Best of all? Yvaine is a tsundere! XD.

Well, that out of my system, rest be assured, normal blogging will resume tomorrow or soon. Quite a backlog I’ve accumulated today :P.

    Agreed. Stardust was one of the best movies of the year so far.

    As a fantasy movie in itself, it’s not bad.

    Still, I liked the book a lot better. For one thing, Victoria was less of the cliche Arrogant Shallow Girl, something I thought was weirdly out of place in the movie.

    Stardust is my personal favorite fantasy film, partly because alot of it just was a complete inversion of the typical 21st century fantasy film; no pretentious over-the-top megabattle, not alot of obvious CGI, actual humor, and just in general fun. No arguments against your assessment here. ^^

    I’ve been wanted to watch this for the longest time. But alas… no DVDs out.

    I could probably name the number of movies I’ve seen this year on one hand. Although none comes to mind right now…

    Yeah saw it with some friends awhile ago, many parts were a riot. But the ending was so deus ex machina that it sorta felt stupid…
