Sweeney Todd
« on: Dec 26, 2007, 01:40 PM »
Went to see this last weekend and am still not sure exactly what to think. Sure, strange things are bound to happen when Burton and Depp get together, but this is beyond anything I ever expected. I'm not saying it was a bad movie, in fact, I rather enjoyed it. It's a musical on the one hand and a rather dark, disturbing, blackest of black comedies on the other.

I hesitate to get to much into it for fear of giving anything away, but be warned, this is not a movie you'd want to take the kiddies to.

This is like Edward Scissorhands goes on a berserker rampage.

Well, let me tell you what to think.  You liked it; you really really liked it.  Sure, it's dark..  really really dark.  A nice dark black musical comedy.  "Bloody Good" as some British guy would say, if he was here to say it.  I hear Johnny Depp sails from Australia and uses sharp implements and it's about murder and mayhem and ripping in London and if he wears a funny hat and looks out a secret window then

then I guess it's pretty much all the movies he's made.  If these guys are headless, and there's a horse, then there ya go. 

Ace; I guess White Christmas is a white comedy.  Really white.
Ring bells for service.

Yeah, they also had a store that sold meat pies, I'll leave it to your imagination as to where the meat came from.

But it wasn't pork, it was that other white meat.
