I had the opportunity to see the movie “Stardust” last night. I honestly thought it would be a cheesy fairy tale and I was not looking forward to seeing it. My expectations were anything but high for this movie. In the end the movie defiantly surpassed my expectations because, I loved it! It was so well done, towards the end of most movies the viewer usually has a general idea of what is going to happen next and how the movie is going to end. Towards the end of Stardust I was at the edge of my seat as if watching a great race not knowing who was going to win in the end. It was awesome, the ONLY thing I did not enjoy which isn’t enough to ruin the movie but I did not like Robert Di Niro’s character, it was awkward and it was unlike anything he has done before.
