De Niro Sealed it All - A Stardust Review


As Christmas approaches, the genre of movies being shown have magically turned to fantasy. All to the happiness of frustrated warlocks like me. From unicorns to ogres or from giants to dwarfs, they all seem welcome attractions and distractions. Hehe!

Last Wednesday, I was lucky enough to finally get a chance to watch my much-anticipated movie on the big screen on its first day. I just came off from duty, feeling tired after almost 8 hours of wrestling through my nursing tasks.

The movie started quite bleakly- its fifteen minutes of slowly introducing its characters to the moviegoers was done in subtlety. Maybe it was so much subtle that I did not even get to prepare myself of the viewing experience I was about to be enthralled.

The storyline was packed with adventure, drama, love, magic and a whole lot of different things. Despite the disarray of characters and emotions, it all seemed to have blended well like coffee is to cream.

Michelle Pfeiffer (did I even spell it right?) was the perfect villainess. Though superficial her reasons are for doing so, she epitomizes the usual dark and murky persona befitting a royal enchantress.

The two main characters (Claire Danes and Charlie Cox) were equally superb. I don't really like Claire Danes but here she glows ( literally or not!). Charlie Cox, though quite unknown by my standards, made Tristan as believable a known fact.

Oh and Robert Deniro! You wouldn't expect how his character would turn out. He had me laughing like a hyena when he made his dance number. You shouldn't miss it I tell you! He truly sealed the deal!

My overly critical self ended up enjoying two hours of pure exhilarating movie experience making me wanting for more.

But all things have to come to an end!

Stardust will surely be a favorite. I better go off and do some quick editing in my profiles because my favorite movies has just had their new companion.

No regrets. It was all worth it.
