Sweeney Todd was such a disappointment. I saw it last night and was left feeling pretty pissed off after watching the thing. It's just a whole lot of nothing!! I love musicals... but really the songs were pretty shite, and were sung with little joy by the actors. The gorgeous Johnny Depp seemed to be acting by numbers. The gore wasn't gory enough, and the horror was... well not horrific at all. This film had no soul... no comedy, no fear, no real pace.
I finished watching the movie feeling robbed... I'd sat through it thinking the thing would somehow start to get going... but it never did.
What a waste. The set design was at least amazing. I'll give it that.
Now for a song that's been stuck in my head all day...
The Pretender - Foo Fighters. Awesome.
