#10: Stardust

January 18, 2011

So what’s it about?: A boy goes into the magical land across the wall on a quest to bring a falling star to his dream girl.  Chaos ensues… with witches, pirates and princes!

The Good: It’s really refreshing to see a kid’s live action adventure flick that has heart and a story rather than a bunch of immature jokes and incredibly painful overacting.

The Bad: There’s A LOT going on in this film.  Our main hero, on his journey, meets so many characters with their own sub-plot lines that after a while it can be a little much to take in.  On the other hand, this film jumps around a lot, so it’s perfect if you have a short attention span!

The Verdict: While not nearly as great as the family films of the 80s (Gotta love some Princess Bride, Neverending Story, etc.) it’s still a great live action adventure fun for the whole family, and definitely one of the best of the last decade!  Worth a view for sure.
