Stardust is a 2007 fantasy film directed by Mathew Vaughn based on the book by Neil Gaiman. It has a pretty star studded cast (ha ha ) of Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, Robert Deniro, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Plot: An awkward young man named Tristan Thorn crosses a wall into a fantasy realm in order to retrieve a falling star for his beloved Victoria. Only when he gets there, the fallen star is actually a woman named Yvaine. And unfortunately, he’s not the only one trying to retrieve the fallen star.
This episode came out okay. I tried to edit out more of the pauses then I was previously taking out as Podcast Squared suggested. Can anyone tell a difference? I didn’t want it to be super snappy, because I wanted to preserve the feeling of just listening to regular people talk about movies. I think it’s possible to become too polished and come off sounding fake and generic.
Stardust is a mixed bag. It has some great visuals, fun character moments, and a stellar cast. But it also has some major plot problems, and the main couple are anything but star crossed. However, overall it’s a fun movie that’s worth watching at least once.
