Stardust DVD Review

Stardust DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Aug 07, 2007
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Claire Danes, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Sienna Miller star in Stardust - a movie based on Neil Gaiman's novel.

Neil Gaiman's magical tale, Stardust, was adapted for the big screen and now it's out on DVD. Does this fantasy story translate well to film or is it better left to the pages of a book? Find out with Kidzworld's review!

Stardust - Look at the Stars, Look How They Shine for You

Tristan Thorn is a young man in love. Sure, the girl of his affections, Victoria Forester, doesn't feel the same, but Tristan's willing to go to extraordinary lengths to prove his devotion. So when Victoria sees a falling star, Tristan promises to bring it back for her in exchange for her hand in marriage. There's just one thing: Tristan only has one week to complete his quest!

Stardust - Journey of Lifetime

After 18 years of living life in the small English town of Wall, Tristan has his world turned upside down when he tells his father of his plans to journey. In order to capture the star, he'll have to travel to the other side of the wall that separates their town from the mysterious land of Stormhold. Turns out, Tristan's not so ordinary after all. His dad reveals that his mother comes from Stormhold and gives him a note left by her, accompanied with a magical candle. With one lighting of the candle, Tristan finds himself exactly where he'd hoped - at the site of the fallen star. But instead of finding a shimmering rock, Tristan finds a beautiful young woman named Yvaine (played by Claire Danes).

Stardust - I'll Capture Your Heart

Tristan captures Yvaine and tells her of his plan to bring her back to his true love Victoria. Predictably, Yvaine is not happy about this plan and the first chance she gets, she escapes from Tristan. Unfortunately for her, she walks right into the trap of the evil witch Lamia (played by Michelle Pfeiffer), who needs to kill Yvaine and eat her heart to retain ever-lasting beauty. As if that wasn't bad enough, there are also several princes after Yvaine, searching for the ruby that she wears around her neck. Will she survive their attacks? Will Tristan get her back to Wall and marry Victoria?

Stardust - DVD Special Features

The Stardust DVD has a solid, if not super, group of special features. Good Omens: The Making of Stardust is interesting because author Neil Gaiman and various cast and crew share their insights. If you've read the novel you'll know that both versions are great, but very different. If you haven't read it, you should! The other features include deleted scenes and a blooper reel. The bloopers are pretty funny, especially because so many of the actors are huge stars, but the deleted scenes were obviously left out for a reason. All in all, the special features add a little sparkle to a stellar DVD.

Stardust - Bottom Line

This new flick is based on Neil Gaiman's 1999 novel, but it is very different. The script takes bits and pieces from the book, but it's almost a brand new story with all the changes that have been made. If you've read the book, you might be disappointed with the film. If you haven't, hold off on reading the book until after you've seen the movie because they're both good on their own. Michelle Pfeiffer is awesome as the evil witch, Claire Danes is magical as the star Yvaine and the whole movie is visually stunning. Stardust is a great fairy tale for those who are feeling a little too grown up for Disney movies!

Stardust Rating:4
