Sweeney Todd


This has to be one of the most gruesome, gory movies I have seen in a long long time.  I don’t really watch horror movies, and I guess you could say No Country for Old Men and The Departed were pretty bloody, but not so much gruesome.

However, I am a big fan of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, and they both deliver.  Depp deserved his Oscar nomination for this role (who knew he could sing?), and the film did win an Oscar for Art Direction.   So if you can get over the story line and the gore, I think it is worth it.  And I was pleasently surprised at the music (it is a musical).  In fact, I may buy the sound track.  I love musicals and tend to listen to them over and over and over…
