    Default Sweeney Todd

    So I just got back from the first showing of Sweeney Todd. And I have to say, it blew away my expectations for what it was going to be like, and I had some pretty high expectations for it.

    Where to start? Well, lets talk about the first sign this movie was going to be epic, the fucking intro. The music was so amazing and strong that it just told you "hey, this movie is going to kick ass."

    After the intro starts, you see Johnny, and what does he do? He sings. How does he sing? Fucking amazingly. Every actor and actress in the movie gave award winning performances through they're singing. The best part is that no one at all in the entire list had any vocal training whatsoever.

    We can't forget the cast. Once again, Tim Burton casts his favorite actor, Johnny Depp to play the leading role as Benjamin Barker/Sweeney Todd. That's not all, he also has a Harry Potter affection for casting these Potter patrons, Alan Rickman (Snape) as Judge Turpin, the main antagonist of the film. Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix LeStrange) plays Ms. Lovett, Todd's accomplice, and Timothy Spall (Peter Pettigrew) who plays Beadle Bamford, Turpin's loyal aide. Who else is in here? Borat. Yes, Sacha Baron Cohen plays Todd's barber rival Signor Adolfo Pirelli. Great huh?

    The storyline is brilliant as well. About 90% of the movie is sung by the leading actors and fits in perfectly with each scene. The music score accompanies the storyline well too. With those two great concepts working in sync with the storyline, it's beautifully told in amazing details.

    What else is there to say, great storyline, casting, amazing music, singing Hollywood stars? Hmm, maybe blood, blood, throats slit, and more blood, plus meat pies! People pies! Fun fun!


    Nanaki's score: 5 out of 5 stars.

    The ending felt like it was missing something but fuck yeah, this was an excellent movie. Emo Boy & Johanna were adorable too.

    The ending was so predictable but in such a good way that still shocked the hell out of you.

    The whole last 30 minutes were pure epic, and sad

    SPOILER: (highlight)
    I feel bad for Ms. Lovett in the furness :[

    I want to see it.
    I want to see a lot of things, but I don't know how. I haven't been to the movies in so long it actually saddens me.

    My friend Mary has been going on about how great the movie is (she saw it tonight). I'm very very sad.

    Spoilers, read at your own risk, this is for the people who don't want to see the movie:

    Toby is suspicious of Todd, so Lovett reluctantly locks him downstairs
    Beadle checks up because of weird smell and is coaxed upstairs for perfume and, naturally, dies
    Toby finds misc. body parts and Beadles dead body.
    The crazy lady comes upstairs looking for Beadle to tell him of the mischief she thinks is happening, Todd kills her
    The judge comes in, Todd lies that Johanna is back at home and has learned her lesson, and kills him finally in a REALLY BLOODY scene.
    Todd almost kills Johanna thinking she is a boy, and saw everything, she barely escapes when Todd hears Lovett scream and runs to her aid.
    Downstairs, Todd discovers the crazy lady is his old wife, Lucy, and he murdered her, Todd thought Lovett said she was dead.
    Todd THROWS MS LOVETT IN THE FUCKING FURNESS AND LOCKS HER IN THERE TO BURN TO DEATH
    Toby, comes out of his hiding place and takes Todd's askewed razor, and kills Todd.
    The end
