Musicals. I guess we all have our different opinions on them, but I love them and this movie/musical is no exception. "Sweeney Todd" is a musical but it’s also dark, so maybe those who don’t like normal musicals would love and enjoy this one. Johnny Depp plays this demon barber of Fleet Street though he didn’t start off that way. I won’t go into his background because of spoilers, but you really understand why he does everything that he does. He teams up with Mrs. Lovett played by Helena Bonham Carter, another one of my favorite actors who plays one of my favorite characters. What can I say? If you know me I happen to love the misunderstood, different characters more than the popular ones. Mrs. Lovett owns a pie shop that’s not doing so well until Sweeney Todd happens by her shop. They come up with a not-so-great plan to get meat for her pies. Again, spoilers for those who have happened to never have seen it, so I’ll stop there. If you’re looking for something different this is definitely that. So check it out if you haven’t, even if you don’t like musicals check it out because I think you might be presently surprised.
