Stardust

This weekend, Ben & I went to see Stardust, the movie based on a Neil Gaiman novel. As Ben said, it was the best film we’ve seen in quite a while. Good story, well-acted, no dull patches. Robert De Niro & Michelle Pfeiffer played great supporting roles.

Today I was looking at the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, and came across a really bizarre comment by Jules Brenner at Cinema Signals. He said, “They might have saved something for a sequel but the sorcery of the enterprise is the three-ring fun of the showy inventions and Pfeiffer’s merry milking of the villainy cow.” WTF!? A sequel? Why are people so obsessed with sequels? Why can’t the movie stand on its own?
