Sunday Night Blues Busters… take 6
Stardust (2007) – Michael Vaughn
Keeping it astral, in name at least – From MOONrise last week, to STARdust. Two very different kingdoms, (fantasy) worlds apart in many ways – but equally exceptional locations, costumes, characters, narrative, screen play and cast. And joyous too, in an easygoing more conventional fairytale adventure rom-com kindaway.
Re-imagined fairytales seemed to be everywhere for about a decade, although they have fallen out of trend in the last few years, but – as to be expected – not all were made equal. Stardust definitely hits the top end of this genre’s spectrum. Adapted from/Inspired by the Neil Gaimon novel it has characters and plot lines and a screenplay of substance, something I find to be a trait of well done literary adaptations. The richness of words and unbridled imagination (the mind has no limits – CGI does), meets the pizzazz of having these worlds visibly created and the minimal time commitment (compared to reading a novel). It’s transatlantic ensemble cast make it a bit like watching the best Pantomime ever made, as everyone eschews their serious actorly credentials for onscreen typecasting and fun. To begin with Ian McKellan is the narrator… and then you encounter Robert De Niro as a closet-camp-dancing-makeover extraordinare moonlighting as the fearsome captain of a flying pirate ship, with Dexter Fletcher as one of his crew; Claire Danes is a fallen shooting star; Michelle Pfeiffer a wicked witch looking to gain eternal beauty and youth; Rupert Everett and Jason Flemyng are competing prices; David Walliams and Ricky Gervais rock up – for more comic relief; Sienna Miller becomes the Rosaline to Charlie Cox’s Romeo – whose Juliet is Claire Danes the shooting star. Its that kind of vibe.
This choice is also dedicated to 2 of my sisters one by blood, the other by soul. Both very literarily discerning – with excellent taste in a matter of all things, and both who have confessed to this being their all time favourite film!
Taylor Swift dará el salto al cine e interpretará un papel en la versión cinematográfica que se está preparando del clásico musical ‘Cats’ 🎥🐱
El épico musical ‘Cats’ se estrenó en Broadway en el año 1980. La obra basada en los poemas de T.S. Eliot es, desde entonces, uno de los grandes éxitos de los teatros neoyorquinos. Y ahora Tom Hooper, directos de películas como ‘Los Miserables’ y ‘El Discurso del Rey’ prepara el que promete ser un triunfo en los cines de todo el mundo. La película empezará a rodarse en el Reino Unido en el mes de noviembre.
Para esta nueva versión contarán con artistas de gran reputación como el actor Ian McKellen, la cantante Jennifer Hudson y el presentador James Corden. Pero la gran sorpresa del reparto es sin duda Taylor Swift, aunque de momento se desconoce qué papel interpretará en la historia, si será principal, secundario o simplemente un cameo.
The UK was in crisis. There had never been so many threats to national security. There was the usual terrorist threats but since the Atlanteans had begun attacking the land things had escalated exponentially and Major General Miller Brown was at a loss to know what to do. After an emergency meeting with Sir Ian McKellen the Prime Minister, it was decided that they needed to enlist the help of the UK's foremost undercover agent who went by the codename Filo. Filo was the only success from the Pacifica Programme, a programme set up in direct response to the potential threat posed by the discovery of Atlantis. He was a genetically engineered Filefish who could survive for several hours out of water, had a genius level IQ and was a master of disguise. Major General Miller Brown called Filo and explained the situation, "We desperately need to stop these Atlantean threats" he said "our country is falling apart, we need you in London now". Filo jumped in his military green Aston Martin Vanquish and set off for London. His car was specially designed to hold water in, it had a small airlock in the roof to enter and all sorts of sensors keeping the water at exactly 25°c with a salinity of 35ppt. It also had a cerebral interface for Filo to drive using only thoughts. Once in london Filo headed straight for Prime Minister McKellen's office in the Houses of Parliment. Filo was fully appraised of the situation and promptly flown by private jet out over the English Channel. Filo dived from the jet and swam down to the Atlantean forces. He was surprised just how many there were. After two days of collecting intel Filo swam into King Neptune's war room. He explained that the UK were not enemies of Atlantis and were in fact making every effort to clean up the seas and that as a country they had the most marine conservation areas in the world. King Neptune was ashamed of his actions and ordered his forces to stop attacking the UK. Filo went on to broker a peace treaty and returned to Land as a hero. For the first time in History the UK was now allied with Atlantis.
