Movies Similar To Stardust

Movies that are similar to Stardust?

Definately "Ladyhawke", which also starred Michelle Pfeiffer. She and Rutger Hauer play a pair of lovers cursed by an evil bishop. Matthew Broderick is a young thief who helps them break the curse.

You might also try Labyrinth (with a young Jennifer Connelly), Legend (with a young Tom Cruise), Krull, or the TV mini-series "The 10th Kingdom". I'm sure there's other's out there, but that's what came off the top of my head.

Books similar to Stardust and Princess Bride?

I loved the books and movies Stardust by Neil Gaiman and The Princess Bride by William Goldman and was wondering if there were any other books like them. Books that are almost set in a fairy tale world, but are not actually set after fairy tales, with a lot of action, swordplay, romance, and humor. Does anyone know any books like that?

What is Stardust?

I don’t know what they mean.But I would suspect it might come from a fact in physics (mentioned in a tune “We are Stardust” by Crosby Stills and Nash, recorded by them and also by Joni Mitchell )The idea would be to inspire in the child a sense of worth and wonder at her own existence. -being composed of “stardust”The underlying fact is that all elements heavier that Hydrogen are created in stars. There is no other way for them to be created. As a star lives out its life and dies, its matter is released, perhaps taken up by other stars. As this process is repeated, the heavier elements are eventually produced. Some of these elements are taken up again by stars, sometimes eventually by planets or other bodies.But if I understand correctly, every element, every atom of anything other than Hydrogen is the result of a process that can only occur inside a star.So the poets take that idea, that all the matter we are made of us was once part of a star - stardust - and use that to inspire us to reach for the stars, because that is where we come from. It is our native home.

Which movies are similar to I Am Legend (2007 movie)?

John Mills is right.  It all started with the I Am Legend novel by Richard Matheson.  Wikipedia says:  "The novel was a success and was adapted to film as The Last Man on Earth in 1964, as The Omega Man in 1971, and as I Am Legend in 2007, along with a direct-to-video 2007 production capitalizing on that film, I Am Omega. The novel was also the inspiration behind the 1968 film Night of the Living Dead."Rhinoceros is also similar but it's a (not very successful) surrealist comedy.

Better movie, The Princess Bride or Stardust?

Okay, The Princess Bride is a better comedy.
Stardust is a better romance.

The Princess Bride is the best straight spoof of a romantic movie that was ever, ever made! Straight spoofs are so much better than those Rodney Dangerfield type spoofs because they aren't denigrating the art form, but somehow manage to elevate it. So The Princess Bride actually is a pretty good romantic fantasy movie, while it subtly pokes fun at the genre with the RUS's and naming the princess "Buttercup" and "I am Inigo Montoya, you killed my father. Prepare to die!" when the guy would obviously be dead...

Stardust is not a spoof, but a really good comedic romantic fantasy movie in the tradition of the Shakespearean Romantic comedies. So to compare them is not really fair... but neither is life, so...

Having said that, I do think The Princess Bride has stood the test of time, and will continue to do so. Stardust is good, but so was Willow at the time, and Ella Enchanted... and though I like them very much, they just aren't as rich and enduring as The Princess Bride... They don't appeal to as wide of an audience as The Princess Bride. In my opinion, Stardust will end up a good solid choice as a romantic comedy, but won't become an instant cult classic the way The Princess Bride did. It will not be watched and rewatched by nearly as many people.
