Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Saw Sweeney Todd the day after Christmas with the Yostenbergs and I have to say it was the first movie I’ve genuinely enjoyed in a while. The abundance of throat slitting makes for a very dark and almost indulgent contrast to the musical numbers. Johnny Depp did a good job out in front, but the cast did an equally good job all the way around. Quality is always top notch with Tim Burton running things. The R rating probably kept ticket sales down, but if you can handle the blood give it a shot or queue it up in Netflix.

Sidenote: Sarah would like to plug Atonement for┬áKeira Knightley’s green dress and excellent library scene.

  1. Haven’t seen either of them, but I will keep an eye out. We watched Pan’s Labyrinth the other night. A little older, but a very cool movie.

  2. excellent library scene, eh? interesting. i am still amy at theburn.com which reminds me…i am amy at theburn because that’s how i log in to my blogger account. do you know (or anyone) if i can change my e-mail on that account or if i would have to get a different blog to have a different login e-mail?

  3. Pan’s Labyrinth looks good, it’s in our Netflix queue. Should move it up and see it sooner.

    Amy, you can change the email tied to your account on the profile page, but you can’t change your actual login; that will have to stay the same.

  4. I have already moved Pan’s Labyrinth up in our queue.

    I would like to add that Atonement is a very well done movie. All the scenes were great.
