Just wanted to say Hi.

<br> Despite Oscar buzz, audiences closely steered clear of Tim Burton's horror musical, Sweeney Todd. I, on the other hand, was excited to see it because of all the excitement and nominations its been getting. Besides, there is not a lot else out there. <br> The first 20 minutes or so are hard to get through. Perhaps it was bizarre to see these actors belting out tunes or because each time you neglect it was a musical, there's one other track. But every time they started singing, it felt really inappropriate and awkward. Around the time little Toby (performed by the cute Ed Sanders) will get on screen for the primary time, you're feeling somewhat higher because he is simply so cute. This was also the primary musical number that wasn't so moody and darkish. Not that I did not appreciate the moody and the darkish because I did and should you see this movie, expect lots of that. It simply took a bit of getting used to. You think of musicals as enjoyable extravagant numbers with dancing and dazzle and all that jazz, but this film is way from that. The numbers are not significantly catchy or fun, but disturbing and twisted. <br> Try to read my other movie review  https://www.zanestate.edu/wp-includes/list/i_could_love_you_if_you_d_let_me___movie_review_by_123movies_haus.html . <br> However, by the time Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter began singing and dancing about placing lifeless folks into meat pies, I was bought. <br> The remainder of the film is simply as delightfully darkish and comical. It was an excellent story with several sudden turns that had me thinking "I ought to have seen this coming." It was nicely written and well filmed, with a unprecedented cast. You need to applaud the leads, Depp and Carter, for taking the cinematic danger they did. Both of them are on my listing of best actors of all time and this film is one of the reasons why. Another nice casting was the all the time nice, Alan Rickman, who seamlessly portrays the creepy, perverted Judge Turpin, that Depp's character is obsessed with killing. Fun fact for Harry Potter followers: his faithful sidekick Beadle within the movie was performed by Timothy Spall, who's the Wormtail to Rickman's Snape in the Harry Potter franchise. Spall is one man that I would love to see cast in a likeable role. He's a good actor, but he plays the same ratty little evil minion in each film. But he was nice along with everyone else. Even Sacha Baron Cohen, who I hate with a fiery ardour, was gratifying. And who knew Borat could sing? <br> The verdict: test it out. It certainly deserves all the buzz it has been getting. It has one thing for everyone, when you don't mind slightly throat slitting right here and there. Do you assume it's wrong that seeing it put me within the temper for a meat empanada? Whatever, it was scrumptious and at least there were no attorneys or monks in mine. <br>
