sweeney todd


i want to say skip it, but it got great reviews. visually, good looking on screen 'minus the gore,' and there is lots of it. maybe that's it, if you can get into the gore, then maybe it is a delight. in general i am a fan of tim burton, depp always delicious, but this one did not do it for me. however, critics are calling it a masterpiece 'if seriel murder is your cup of tea.'

That's disappointing that you didn't like it. I am yet to see it but have always been a fan of Tim Burton, although with the exception of the animation the Corpse Bride, his films the last few years have not been very good..and I hate to say it but generally whenever he casts Bonham Carter it is a bad idea...
Definetley not an onscreen-offscreen match that works well..

i'm thinking along the same lines, i too liked the corpse bride. i know a few folks who are thinking of seeing the film, so i am waiting and interested in what their experience will be. i just kind of felt like sweeney todd was missing something... 'je ne sais pas...'
