In the spirit of how there are only & stories in the world, I've noticed a high level of similarities between these two films, basically how tDwP is about a hero's descent and temptation to the Dark Side. Anne Hathaway is both Luke and Anakin, while Meryl Streep is the Emperor. In essence tDwP is ALL SIX of the Star Wars films, wrapped into one!
Also Stardust= Conan the Barbarian (except not as good!). Especially the end where you have the helpless maiden strapped to the altar about to be sacrificed until our noble hero comes along and rescues her from the hideous witch. That was a cliche in the 1930's, guys!
