We saw it last night - quite liked it - the setting was superb and costuming fabulous...beautiful textures and I loved the whole monochrome palette with the shock of the blood used to full effect. I though the gore was quite comic like really.

Am not sure that I liked the ending though, just felt like they shoud have reconciled that story with Joanna somehow before the ending...

I though Depp was fine but Rickman was absolutely brilliant! Such a handsome devil he is  Wink

Saw it yesterday. Depp and Rickman, smashing as usual. I've never quite liked Bonham Carter, except for the Fight Club role, but she managed quite well in this one.

As for the blood, I actually think it was a bit too brightly red. Blood is darker than the comic style blood in this movie. I of course see the colour effect of it, opposing the otherwise dark blue/yellow/gritty colours, but I still think it should have been darker.

Tim Burton, dark as always, we salute you.

They desaturated the colors in post-production. On set the blood was actually orange. Anyway, I think it was because he was cutting arteries. It's actually quite bright when one of those opens up, more than most people think.

Well, probably. But I still think the darker reds call for more sinister looks. A look I'd say would fit the movie better, in my humble opinion.

This morning I discovered the most terrible thing. Not only have people apparently been walking out of this in droves, they did it because they didn't expect it to be a musical. The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Tim Burton, to me, is the Corpse Bride and Nightmare Before Christmas and then they blame the trailer for not making it obvious, even though it had that musical number towards the end of it. For the first time in 21 long years do I truly feel ashamed for being British.

Whoa. Steady on there. I don't think British people walking out of a musical reflects badly on British people as a whole, at least I hope it doesn't.  I'm sure they didn't think to themselves "An Englishman does not sit through these kinds of dissonant choruses.  I'm leaving, and I'm taking my Empire with me."

I actually thought the trailers were very misleading, because after seeing several trailers I was still thinking to myself "I wish they'd just made a film of the Sondheim version."  Also, I cannot understand why they didn't include the 'Ballad of Sweeney Todd', I can understand cutting all the other large choruses but it would have worked perfectly over that slightly tedious intro animation, during which I was constantly thinking "ATTEND THE... oh no... next count fo eight... six, seven, eight - ATTEND THE TA... bugger."

Yesterday I attended the tale of Sweeney Todd
and...what should I say... It was hilarious, one of the best movies I have seen in a while!
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

but I'm a fan of musicals so this does not wonder me too much.

As I was walking out of the theater after seeing the movie I overheard an uncultured slob behind me complaining that it would have "been better without all that stupid singing" where the hell do these people come from...

We're doing Sweeny Todd as our school musical.

That's effing awesome.  Wish my high school was that cool.  I just heard what they are doing this year (i'm in college now): High School Musical.  It's sickening.

The students are all against it. I hear all of the upperclassmen drama-kids are on strike and they're going to have to cast it out of freshmen.

Hah, I see what you did there.
It went pretty well, actually. I'd have been dissappointed if it didn't, especially with all the rehearsals we went to.

I attended this tale yesterday, in it's movie form, and I must say, I'm most impressed by it. 'Tis the best movie I've seen in quite some time!

The whole dark atmosphere strikes a chord with me, but I must admit I knew the atmosphere would; such is Tim Burton's work, in my humble opinion. It was also visually inspiring; it was well-timed with the revival of my Steampunk love Cheesy

This movie also holds a first for me: the moment the music began, I decided I would purchase the soundtrack Grin Even if it was only for the opening Wink

I saw it just after Christmas while I was in California. (My dad took me while my sisters dragged my aunt to see "Enchanted." Which would have been fine, except that they've seen it 5 times already...  Shocked) I quite liked it, and I would be very keen on seeing the Broadway version. Since I have no money, though, that's probably going to be a long time from now.

However. The movie. I loved it. All I can say.  Grin

 I saw it a few weeks ago and thought: "meh..." I didn't like it. I did like to costumes, but the movie? Meh... I didn't care for any of the characters, the songs were sort of nice but nothing special. I didn't hate it, I just wasn't moved by it in any way.

I feel the same about this movie.. nice costumes, nice songs, but.. something is missing
And I can say I was a little disappointed  Undecided ..
