Stardust

Filed under: Doodles, Blabs and Rants — didee @ 6:27 pm

Waaaaaaah! My favorite Neil Gaiman novel, Stardust, is now about to hit the screen. I’ve been hooked with Gaiman’s works ever since I read one of his comics, The Sandman series, which was introduced to me by a guy i was crushing on a few years back. Gaiman is a genius. His stories are mostly about weird and magical and out of this world characters, and would just leave you turning page after page after page.

And Stardust is my favorite among them. A story about love, friendship, trust and adventure. I hope the movie would give the book justice. ๐Ÿ™‚

โ€œStardust,โ€ based on the best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman illustrated by Charles Vess, takes audiences on an adventure that begins in a village in England and ends up in a magical world. A young man named Tristan (Charlie Cox) tries to win the heart of village beauty Victoria (Sienna Miller) by promising to bring her a falling star. His journey takes him beyond the walls of his village to a mysterious and forbidden land.

When Tristan finds the star, he is stunned to discover that it is, not a lump of meteoric rock, but an angry, injured girl named Yvaine (Claire Danes) โ€“ who has no desire to be dragged across the world and presented to anyoneโ€™s girlfriend. But Tristan is not the only one seeking the star. A dying kingโ€™s (Peter Oโ€™Toole) four sons โ€“ not to mention the ghosts of their three dead brothers โ€“ all need the star as they vie for the throne. Three evil witches, led by the murderous Lamia (Michelle Pfeiffer) seek the starโ€™s heart to make them young again.

Tristan and Yvaine are forced to flee together, encountering the captain of a flying pirate ship (Robert De Niro) and a shady trader named Ferdy the Fence (Ricky Gervais) along the way. As they travel Tristan discovers the meaning of true love, but does not realise heโ€™s leading Yvaine into even more danger…

  14. The book wasn’t that good to begin with. And the movie, well, it has hollywood written all over it. So, don’t expect too much.

  15. hi Anymous Coward

    .. guess you meant “anonymous” ๐Ÿ™‚

    if that’s ur opinion of the book… well… that’s your opinion. ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks for sharing it ๐Ÿ™‚

    as for the movie, no harm done cause i really am not expecting that much from it , but im hoping (a bit) that at least it won’t be that horrible, Neil Gaiman is a great writer and his works deserves more than second rate hollywood product.

    thanks for dropping ๐Ÿ™‚
