Thread: Sweeney Todd

  1. #1

    Sweeney Todd

    Trailer

    Musicals normally suck, but this one is going to rock!

    Severus Snape!
    Peter Pettigrew!
    Bellatrix LeStrange!

    Together again, for the first time with Ichabod Crane, Borat, and Count Dooku!

    Directed by Tim Burton, who is a far better director than George Lucas can even dream of being nowadays. He has done no wrong in his career. (JT, don't even bring up Batman Returns, because it rocked, and your DoomBot programming must be interfering with your appreciation of the film.)
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Batman Returns wasn't very good, it was self-indulgent junk. Mars Attacks was bloated, self-indulgent pap pretending that by being so it was somehow art. Sleepy Hollow lived up to its title, that movie was so thin. Planet of the Apes was just a forgettably poor movie all around. And I still say Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wasn't that good.

    Normally I wouldn't even bother responding, but you called me out specifically.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Only because I knew any praise for Burton would result in you attacking Batman Returns.

    Looking back, I don't even think Batman isn't all that good - just Jack as Joker.

    I'm tired of Depp-Burton collaborations.

    Depp's best movie was Donnie Brasco, none of this goofy Charlie Wood Corpse and the Scissors Factory nonsense.

    It had penguins with rockets attached to them. What's not to like?

    Anyway, "Sweeney Todd" is one of the only movies I'm still looking forward to this year.

    I agree about the Wonka trainwreck but love the Ed Wood and Scissors! Not to mention Sleepy Hallow too...

    Burton and Depp are to neo-expressionist film what Eastwood and Leone were to spagehetti westerns and Mifune and Kurosawa were to samuri flicks!

    Actually, my first thought would have been to not post since I don't give a crap about the movie (oh look, another Tim Burton movie where Johnny Depp looks like... that) but my second would have been to call Burton out for one of the ones I listed, they're worse than BR.

    Sadly, I have been losing my taste in the first film as well. It's just that Batman Begins was SUCH a better interpretation.

    You just know Kenner was eating **it when they saw that and realized they had to make a toy of it.
