Stardust [based on the book]

I read this book a while ago and really enjoyed it, so I wasn’t too sure if I’d enjoy the film. You know the way they always change stuff. But I try to pretend that it is a brand new story and not based on any book, course that doesn’t always work, but I do try.

Anyway, I’m happy to report that Stardust is just a lovely film. It is the story of a young man who goes on a quest into the faerie world to bring back a star in order to prove his love. Only across “the wall” he finds that the star is actually a woman, and that there are others looking to find her, and for slightly more nefarious reasons.

Ladyhawke

I’ve wanted to buy this film on dvd for a long time now, but kept putting it off because it is a pretty vanilla dvd release. Menus are not a special feature. Still better late than never I suppose.

For those that don’t know, Ladyhawke opens with Broderick escaping a prison. In fact he is the only person to have ever escaped from this prison, so his captors really want to recapture him and show everyone that no one escapes from the Dungeons of Aquila. The guards almost recapture him, but he is saved by Etienne Navarre, the ex-captain of the Guard, a man wanted by the Bishop’s men.
