I was lucky enough to win free movie tickets to Stardust, courtesy of our office. So last Wednesday I headed off to the theater with my officemates to watch the movie – it was awesome!

I don’t know why it didn’t hit the theaters worldwide all at the same time because as I have heard, in the US it was shown as early as August while in some parts it was shown last September and now October in the Philippines.

Anyway the sypnosis below from IMDB.com gives the plot outline of the movie

“A young man named Tristan (Charlie Cox) tries to win the heart of Victoria
(Sienna Miller), the beautiful but cold object of his desire, by going on a
quest to retrieve a fallen star. His journey takes him to a mysterious and
forbidden land beyond the walls of his village. On his odyssey, Tristan finds
the star, which has transformed into a striking girl named Yvaine (Claire
Danes). However, Tristan is not the only one seeking the star. Lord Stormhold’s
(Peter O’Toole) three living sons not to mention the ghosts of their four dead
brothers all need the star as they vie for the throne. Tristan must also
overcome the evil witch, Lamia (Michelle Pfeiffer), who needs the star to make
her young again. As Tristan battles to survive these threats, encountering a
pirate named Captain Shakespeare (Robert De Niro) and a shady trader named Ferdy the Fence (Ricky Gervais) along the way, his quest changes. He must now win the heart of the star for himself as he discovers the meaning of true love.”

The story is very interesting. So if you’re into fantasy with a twist of romance and humor, I recommend this movie for you. I rate it a 10/10 since I’m a fan of movies like these. I just don’t know why it’s so underrated and is not advertised the way Spiderman and Harry Potter was. Anyway click play below to watch the trailer.
