Guest review by Tommy “Slug” Togath, age 13

My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars

Stardust (Paramount Pictures) is an adaptation of a Neil Gaiman novel about a fairy named Yvaine (Claire Danes) who comes to life when her comet persona crashes to Earth.  There’s lots of adventuring with a bunch of larger-than-life characters, including the witch Lamia (Michelle Pfeiffer) and the pirate Captain Shakespeare (Robert de Niro).  This is a fun and enjoyable swashbuckler, but I don’t think I would see it again. It won the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form in 2008.
