I saw Sweeney Todd tonight.
It was a thoroughly odd experience.→
[More:]When the gore started up, people got up and walked out. Lots
of people.When the movie ended, people started grumbling that it was the worst movie they'd ever seen. One woman complained that "no one told her it was a musical."
Do people really go see movies they know absolutely nothing about? You didn't think there'd be blood in a movie about a homicidal barber? You didn't think it was a musical despite all the singing in the commercial?
Frankly, I loved it. And so did my sisters. But we're big Sweeney Todd fans and huge Depp fans, so we're biased.
