    Stardust

    A young man named Tristan (Charlie Cox) tries to win the heart of Victoria (Sienna Miller), the beautiful but cold object of his desire, by going on a quest to retrieve a fallen star. His journey takes him to a mysterious and forbidden land beyond the walls of his village. On his odyssey, Tristan finds the star, which has transformed into a striking girl named Yvaine (Claire Danes). However, Tristan is not the only one seeking the star. Lord Stormhold's (Peter O'Toole) three living sons not to mention the ghosts of their four dead brothers all need the star as they vie for the throne. Tristan must also overcome the evil witch, Lamia (Michelle Pfeiffer), who needs the star to make her young again. As Tristan battles to survive these threats, encountering a pirate named Captain Shakespeare (Robert De Niro) and a shady trader named Ferdy the Fence (Ricky Gervais) along the way, his quest changes. He must now win the heart of the star for himself as he discovers the meaning of true love

    Saw this today. It was okay, a little funny, a little boring. Probably more of a renter than going to the theatre even though it got a 2 thumbs up review. My favourite part was the ghosts of the Princes hanging around and commenting on parts of the action. They were cute.

    This was probably my favourite Gaiman book, so I'm sort of anxious to see it, but my 8-year-old is fascinated with the commercials - I don't know that she's old enough to see it. Bubba-Jo, would you take a child to it? She handles the Pirates of the Caribbean movies no problem, and they have a PG rating as well.

    It's my favorite Gaiman book too, and this has gotten good reviews, so I'm looking forward to seeing it.

    There might be some scary parts for a 8 year old - ie the witch but she'd probably enjoy it. I've never read the book so I had nothing to compare it to. Forgot to add that Ricky Gervais was good in his cameo.

    I absolutely loved this movie. I wish they had casted someone other than Claire Danes, but other than that it was highly enjoyable. Automatic add to my DVD collection.

    Me, too! I could have sworn the one commercial I saw for it had Gwyneth Paltrow in it (whom I HATE) but now I'm wondering if maybe it was Claire Danes (whom I LOVE). I look forward to seeing this and will put it on my list.

    I've really enjoyed what Gaiman I've read . . . I'll definitely have to check this out.
