The Demon Barber of Fleet Street!

Sweeney Todd!


Have any of you seen the play or the musical? It's an absolutely hilarious show, but manages to be brutal and intense all at the same time.

All I can say is that Tim Burton was MADE to direct this movie.

And the casting is fantastic. Johhny Depp plus Helena Bonham Carter equals love.

And most importantly.... JOHNNY DEPP SINGS!!!

I'm so excited ^_^

I've never seen the stage production, but it is coming to Denver next spring and I am SO there.

As for the movie, I've already made absolute certain that December 21st is devoid of plans.

But what if a really hot chick wants to sex you up on the 21st?

I'm totally gonna see this and I won't have to pay, which is one of the few perks with my job.

Not your average run-of-the-mill musical by a long shot, though.

Yeah, it's a musical and I haven't seen the stage production of it either. But, it was definitely wroth seeing. I enjoyed it even despite the fact that I'm not a fan of musicals in any way, sort, or manner. But, it had Johnny Depp in it. And it was directed by Tim Burton and had quite an exceptional cast.

The film was great, though. It was quite grotesque and gruesome, but it also was quit humourous as well. I'd totally recommend seeing it.

Be warned that the film was shipped with the audio track set to "very loud" (at least that's what the theater manager told me). Good movie. Very dark and tragic and all that, but also painfully loud in several places.

I have to say I'm curious about this movie.
Seems like it's very interesting and everytime that Johnny Deep and Tim Burton team up the final product is very good.
At least I always like.
I guess I'll watch this one too.

Finally saw it and I absolutely loved the music. The film was really well made but I just really don't care for that style as much :/

I'm not going to be able to watch that movie without thinking of Jack Sparrow the entire time, I'm afraid. Otherwise looks good.

I'd like to watch it eventually but I don't know if I'll ever get around to seeing it before it leaves theaters..

I thought it was absolutely fantastic.

The score was phenomenal, the singing was fantastic, the acting was Oscar-worthy, the artistry of Tim Burton was spot-on and innovative... It was everything I had hoped for.

I really enjoyed it also, but then I've liked every Burton film I've ever seen.
The contrast between the musical aspect (usually has happier connotations) and the rather dark nature of the film was interesting. Depp can sing!
