On its 15th anniversary, Stardust still carries that secret magic

My positive response makes me one of the kids this movie is “for” in Variety’s reviewand if that’s not the case then one of the “6 year olds and imaginary nerds” mentioned in The Spectator’s. But at 14, I didn’t fit any of the supposed target crowds. To those assessments – which, in retrospect, may have notes of condescension in them – I feel as though I was missing it. It’s me? Especially now that I’m in my thirties, I see “Stardust” as more than just a fantasy adventure that my teenage years considered a “good movie”?

Looking back, “Stardust” knows how to grow with viewers (at least with this Vietnamese) because its association with the present moment is different from most. It was writers Jane Goldman and Vaughn who brought modern elements into your ancient landscapes, and that contrasts with the more obvious (if trendy) route to turning things into classic into fish out of water. The modernization processes themselves are not interested in the variegated items or references to capture; they were in the world, almost as natural as the sun and the moon. Therefore, jokes such as seeing Lamia (Pfeiffer) using ring arrive call her sisters, or realize the oldest prince’s carriage, Primus (Jason Flemyng), is a Hummer but horse-drawn, still functional (if not meme-ready, right? “Shrek?”). The dialogue, or specifically its brief notion of working within the blockbuster, is also immune to time because it’s neither period-blooming nor Netflix’s new “Convincing”. Of course, “The Princess Bride” did all of this first. In fact, Rob Reiner’s movie and “Midnight Run” even inspired Vaughn’s vision.
