01:04 am - Stardust
Really liked it. It wasn't the book, but it was the bones of the book; it wasn't the book but in a good way. Really a lovely movie, which makes me wonder if some of the reviewers I read were being deliberately dim, or perhaps didn't bother to see the actual film (which I know happens).

cjo invited me; also along were uly and faintheart. Then afterward, the stealthy creature known as gpq made himself known, and we all went back to C & U's place for garlic bread and cheese.

Later, faintheart and I ran errands and watched Ninja Warrior on G4. A damn fine day.

I saw it on Saturday and also very much enjoyed it. I'd just seen Charlie Cox in Casanova a few days earlier and found him delightful. I'm definitely buying it on DVD.

Got to see the trailer for Elizabeth: The Golden Age, which made me *very* happy. They also showed the trailer for The Dark Is Rising, which made me very *unhappy*. That series had a profound effect on me as a child and from what I could see from the trailer, the only thing the movie has in common with the book is the character names. This was in direct contrast to Stardust which, as you note, was the bones of the book-- the story boiled down to it's essential elements.
