Stardust... Stardust... Stardust... Stardust...

The website for Stardust the movie is up, and I am totally beside myself, since Stardust is one of my all-time favorite books, and I've been waiting for sooooo long for this movie. It's billed by a couple of big names like Peter o'Toole, Rupert Everett, Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert de Niro. Ian McKellen is also in the movie as the narrator. I've already reconciled myself to the fact that Claire Daines is playing Yvaine (and she does look cute and adorable, once you look at her close and long enough), so I'll be elbowing myself past the people in line at the theatres come August.

Here are some screenshots from the website:

See? There's Mr. Robert De Niro, who plays Captain Shakespeare

Peter o'Toole as the old king of Stormhold

Ah... the ageless Michelle Pfeiffer. XD

Tristran and Yvaine on the open road.

I wish I had a star as pretty as she... Sigh.

From Slumdog to Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire has been getting a lot of hype lately, and I, for one, think it deserves it.

Set in the slums of Mumbai, Slumdog Millionaire is, simply, a rags-to-riches story of a boy who went from the shit-diving fanboy (watch the movie and you'll understand) to the 20 million-Rupee winner of the local version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - and gets the girl of his dreams in the process. And to make it truly Bollywood-grade (it's a British film, BTW), there's a dance scene at the end.

While some may say that the story is something we've all seen before countless times over and over again (yes, the premise is THAT overused), that's entirely beside the point. No idea is new, they say, the key lies in the way something is presented, which makes Slumdog Millionaire stand out from all the rest. The cinematography for one, is great, and for a movie that reminded me so much of the slums of our own Payatas, of the congestion of this sprawling metropolis we call Met…

One last thing before I hit the sack.

I realize I haven't been posting as much as I want to (ha, Captain Obvious), settling for the occasional photo.

Still, I just want to give out a big thank You to the Guy Upstairs, for blessings and what I pray to be good things to come.
