I read Neil Gaiman's Stardust (c. 1999) and loved it - and last night we saw the movie version (also titled "Stardust"). Best movie I've seen all year. Fantastic date movie, wonderful feel good movie, lovely family movie, marvelous fantasy movie. Oh yeah, did I mention that I really liked it?
And here is Neil talking about Stardust the movie (and other things) in an interview with Bookslut.
