'Stardust' adaptation shines

When director Matthew Vaughn left "X-Men 3" at the mercy of the pack of untalented wolves known collectively as Brett Ratner in favor of helming "Stardust," I hoped the gamble would pay off. Otherwise, humanity would have two additional squandered adaptations stinking up the place and making the hole in the ozone layer even bigger. But thankfully, the odds of getting sunburned haven't drastically increased, because "Stardust" succeeds at being a charming fantasy comedy adventure.

Suggested student cinema

If you haven't discovered this yet, a keen knowledge of movies can definitely enhance your college education. Throughout your years of schooling, whether you are a freshman, grad student or anything in between, you will find movies are a staple conversation piece. They bring us together and give us all something in common - or at the very least, give you something to chat about with that cute classmate sitting next to you.
