Went to watch Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street today.
It was bloody excellent, from the set, cinematography and actors right down to each note of the music.
And when I say bloody, I mean bloody. If it didn't look quite so fake (which was intended though) it would've been pretty gruesome. Although it was gruesome enough. Tim Burton has once again truly created a wonderful masterpiece. Johnny Depp has an enchanting singing voice, which gave me chills, very fitting to the feel of the movie. And although it made me feel mildly queasy at times, seeing Alan Rickman and Johnny Depp singing a duet totally brightened up my mood immensely.
It's M18, for a good reason. I did read in an interview of JD and TB in the paper, and TB said that it was meant to look not so realistic, more hyper-real, or something along those lines haha. But there was alot of red liquid.. whatever they used. :P
Not one for those who hate musicals, and blood. =D
Helena Bonham Carter has a pretty voice too, but the little boy who played Toby had such a beautiful singing voice. (: so overall, I'd say 4.5 stars if I ever had a say =P
Also watched Meet the Spartans (how you may ask? well HAHA too bad. :P)
Pretty much a hiiilarious spoof of 300 which i absolutely LOVE. (Not only because GB is in it :P)
It's full of the nonsensical spoof shit you'd expect from a spoof film, spoofing other movies.. But Meet the Spartans mainly spoofs 300, following even some fighting sequences, and poking fun at the fact lots of the movie was shot in front of a blue screen, adding in several characters and lines from other popular movies & shows in 2007 (eg. Spiderman 3, Ugly Betty, Heroes!! :P) and also certain events involving celebs (eg. britney spears' shaving of the head :P) Also, it involves skipping spartans, who hold hands and skip whilst marching off to war. :P And it also features a familiar youtube star, whom we all know and love. :P
And never have I seen a movie that advertises so obviously throughout the duration of the film. Eg. ipods, gatorades, budweisers. :P
Not one for you if you don't enjoy things like the Scary Movie series and the like :)
I thought it was pretty funny, but you also must have watched 300 so you understand the sequences as they play out in the movie. :) But I thought it was pretty funny. =D
