cool story with michelle pfeiffer

Beautiful Fairy Tale

This movie is based on Neil Gaiman doing what he does best: wonderful, modern fairy tales. I recently watched this movie again after a long time, and I was reminded of just how much I liked it. It would be great for children and adults; there are some really darkly funny moments in it, and the cameos are terrific to watch. It's silly and magical and everything you would expect of a very solid fairy tale. I haven't read the book before, but I will definitely pick it up now (preferably on CD, read by the master author himself!).

Stardust

Based on Neil Gaiman's book of the same name "Stardust" is a fantastic tale about a man who thinks he can force women do to his will and instead learns that love is more important. Everyone in the novel learns the error of trying to control others or hold power over them.
Tristran is the son of a human father, with whom he lives in the town of Wall, and a fairy princess who visited the town that borders on her lands. At the age of 18, Tristran tries to get the village beauty, Victoria, to marry him by promising to bring her a fallen star. He enters into the supernatural realm of Fairy and finds a fallen star personified and takes her prisoner. Of course, others are also trying to capture the star for the power they can get from her. Meanwhile, the Fairy king's sons are fighting each other to the death for the crown.
I highly recommend this very interesting movie, but read the book first. It is great, as are all of Gaiman's novels, and (as usual) better than the movie based upon it.
SPOILER ALERT: The movie has a positive depiction of a transgender individual.

Hollywood formula

OK movie (agree good performances), but much better book - more complex characters and more interesting ending. Why must Hollywood change anything different to fit the formula?!

Adventure for everyone!

This is a charming movie, with excellent performances all around. Robert DeNiro's character alone makes this movie worth watching, but there's also an amazing voodoo-doll fight scene, great special effects, a charming hero, a dazzling heroine, and evil witches. If you liked The Princess Bride, you will love this movie.
