Three sentence movie reviews: Stardust
I really enjoyed this whimsical tale that combined the best of fantasy, good acting and excellent plot. The ghosts were a delightful addition as was Robert De Niro as Captain Shakespeare. This was an incredibly fun way to spend 127 minutes.
Bechdel score: two women? Yes. Who talk to each other? Yes. About something besides a man? Yes. Although the topic of conversation happens to be killing another woman so that the women in question can regain their youth. Not necessarily what were looking for, but we will take it.
Also: Robert DeNiro seems to be having an incredibly fun time in his sixth decade. Many “fun” roles. Some that are actually funny, like this one, and others that are not, like in Meet the Parents.
I love this movie! As soon as we saw it I ran out and got the book. Made me a huge Gaiman fan!
Don't forget Ricky Gervais!
