~*Stardust*~

To celebrate the end of summer school (extra credit) for my li'l sis... DH and I took her to see Stardust.
Although the movie hadn't gotten such rave reviews, I myself LOVE the movie.
It was a fun fantasy movie, and I really enjoyed seeing it on the big screen as opposed to waiting for the DVD.
As an added bonus, a woman in the row below us, wore
Dior Addict Eau Fraiche
"Notes:
Mandarin, Jasmine Petal, Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin Leaf, Gardenia, Queen of the Night, Bulgarian Rose, Mysore, Sandalwood, White Musk.
Style:
Sensual. Soft. Feminine." -Sephora

It really matched the movie's visuals, and I suppose enhanced the experience.

Better than smellorama AKA smellovision.

Bob De Niro made me laugh a lot!

As usual though I was the only person who clapped and said "Yay" at the end of the film, then a lot of the others followed... Why are people so shy?

It is as if people need someone else to break the barrier of expression to make reacting out loud OK. Well, I am not complaining, I am just concerned.

DH didn't care for the movie because of the animal sacrifices (done old world style)... Reading entrails for answers to the witches questions. I too do not care for those scenes, however since I have done my share of dissections I was not as easily grossed out by the handling of innards.

Now, Stardust the movie is a colorful feast for the eyes, it is full of surprise moments and a few wonderful cameos that leave their mark despite the quick come and go.

If you like movies like Legend, Labyrinth, Willow, The Fifth Element, Shrek, The Prince and the Pauper and LOTR... you will probably like this movie.

The Trailers we saw included ~*Spiderwick*~... We are really looking forward to it.

A few other movies too.

We needed to start going out to the theater again. Just wish that it was not so expensive!



I got tagged by 3 people that I still need to catch up on- Sonji, Amy & Heather... I will get to it soon.
Thank you for thinking of me!!!

Thank you for the good review of the movie, I have been wanting to see it.
It was filmed in England and we were there earlier this summer.
The town scenes were filmed in the town of Castle Combe, called "the prettiest village in England" and it IS sooo charming.

Part of the movie was supposed to also be filmed at the Manor House there. Which is a VERY expensive and exclusive hotel.

I LOVED Stardust! It really lived up to the book. I'm looking forward to Spiderwick too -- and The Golden Compass (I've read all 3 books -- they were spectacular)
