I realize this is a boring title for a blog post, but it is entirely factual. Neil Gaiman is awesome. His book, Stardust, is now a movie of the same title, which I saw last night and is just darling. ("Just darling," is a valid critique if your movie contains witches and ghosts.) Anyway, Gaiman was both a co-writer and a producer on this project, which is somewhat different then the book, but an entirely worthy effort. If you've read Stardust in comic form... I'm wondering, what do you expect from the movie?
