finaly got to see Sweeny Todd

i had seen the original broadway version before, but this is the first time i saw Tim Burtons remake.
im not one for musicals as a rule... but i make an exception where Sweeny Todd is concerned lol. one of the best musicals ever written. such power, such emotion, such.. twisted, demented, gore! ahhh what a delight.

i liked Burton's version, it was really amazing to see it come to life. But, i still think Angela Landsbury was the best Mrs Lovette. and (altho i adore Johnny Depp) i dont think Johnny really had Sweeny quite right... he was sorta... Emo Sweeny... Sweeny todd was cynical, malicious, spiteful, and angry. i didnt feel that with Depp. the anger was there, but it was mostly weak.he squeeked out lines where Sweeny Todd is supposed to bellow them.

but overall, i loved it. wow what a ride :D
