Movie of the Week: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Tim and Johnny, all is forgiven for Charlie & The Chocolate Factory.

This is the Tim Burton I race to the movies to see. I’ve never seen Sweeney Todd on Broadway so I have nothing to compare it to (and maybe that’s for the best).

It’s takes about half a song to get used to Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter singing but they both did great jobs.

I think I could watch Alan Rickman read the phone book and I’d be interested. I don’t there has ever been an Alan Rickman performance I haven’t enjoyed.

Warning: it’s very bloody, comically so. Think Kill Bill – The Bride vs. The Crazy 88’s

  1. I think Kill Bill was more bloody.

    I watched with my brother on Christmas Day. I enjoyed it, but it’s definitely not the kind of movie I’d want to see on Christmas Day.

    I loved Helena Bonham Carter. And Johnny Depp is so much better when he’s dark than when he’s a pirate.
