I'm still dying to see Superbad, but I did manage to catch Stardust a couple of weekends ago.
I was hoping for cooler concession snacks (I don't know. Maybe some samgyupsal?), but it was pretty similar to typical American delicacies, like popcorn and churros. The only significant difference is that seats are pre-assigned. You may request a specific seat upon purchase. Tickets prices are slightly less expensive than in the States, but I wouldn't consider them cheap. Maybe around $7? I don't exactly recall.
Here's a pic of Cyndi & me in the theater. The theater was quite small and cramped, but I don't think its representative of your typical Korean theater.
Check out the lady behind us. She looks totally disgusted! I was tempted to take more photos, but felt a little awkward after viewing her expression upon playback. Come on, girlfriend! You're Korean. Don't you understand the importance of sel-cas.
So, what did I think of Stardust? I absolutely adored it. It was funny, romantic, adventurous, continually entertaining, and featured a stellar (no pun intended) cast. I don't consider myself a Claire Danes fan, especially a British-accented Claire Danes, but she was quite winning, especially with her long blonde hair. She definitely rocks the blonde locks. Robert DeNiro is quite hilarious (though over the top) as Captain Shakespeare, a man with a few fabulous skeletons in his closet, if you know what I'm saying. Michelle Pfeiffer, who gets more beautiful with age, is perfectly casted as an evil witch. The star of the show (these star references were honestly unintended!), however, was the movie's hero. At first, I was like, who is this guy? Then I was like, who is this guy? His name is Charlie Cox, and he manages to pull off a nice blend of cluelessness, charm, swashbuckle (Can I use that as an adjective?), and good hair.
If you feel like a fun, engaging movie, I definitely recommend Stardust. If not, you should definitely check it out when it's available as a rental. Or, if you're in Korea, you can "purchase" the dvd from your local "vendor."
Speaking of purchasing dvds... I've heard that you can purchase the dvd of films currently released in theaters; films like Transformers, Die Hard 4, or The Simpsons Movie. I have absolutely no first hand knowledge of such illegal merchandise, but I've heard that you can buy two movies for approximately $5, or five movies for $10; possibly from some dude at your local subway station -- allegedly. As I've clearly stated, I have no knowledge of such underhanded transactions, but... I have seen The Simpsons movie and have to say that it's totally worth 5000 won, especially if its accompanied by the dvd for 1408 starring John Cusack. Or, so I imagine...
