Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street



Sweeney Todd is coming out very soon. I am soooo excited! Johnny Depp is one of my favourite actors in Hollywood i would love to see him in a musical. If you're wondering who else is in the movie, well.. Helene Bonham Carter is in, Alan Rickman and Timothy Spall (Harry Potter), and Sacha Baron (Borat). Its a star casted movie.. now, who wants to miss this movie? dont count me in. I'll be first in line to buy tickets when the movie reaches Malaysia (hurry up laahh!!)

Here's a movie review i got from About.com :

"Barber Benjamin Barker (Johnny Depp) has his life – and beautiful wife and child – ripped away by the corrupt, power-crazed Judge Turpin (Alan Rickman). Sentenced to prison for a crime he didn’t commit, Barker has only the memories of his family and the image of Judge Turpin to keep him company as he whiles away time in jail.

15 years after Turpin tears apart his world, Barker leaves prison and returns to London, his mind consumed with thoughts of revenge. Renaming himself Sweeney Todd, the crazy-haired barber pays a visit to unsuccessful businesswoman/pie baker Mrs Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter), moving back into the empty apartment over her restaurant where he used to reside with his wife.

Mrs Lovett, the baker of inedible pies, tells Sweeney Todd that after he was sent away his poor wife took poison rather than remain with the judge. Her sad tale serves to help fuel Sweeney Todd’s lust for revenge. With his razors sharpened and ready for duty, Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett begin to cook up ways of getting even with the wicked Judge Turpin. Sweeney Todd’s obsessed with the idea of making Judge Turpin pay for what he did to his wife and for continuing to hold his angelic teenage daughter against her will in his home.

As Sweeney Todd’s rage and despair deepen, he and the loyal Mrs Lovett – who has her eyes on Sweeney Todd as more than just a tenant - concoct a plan which will not only take care of Judge Turpin, but will also have customers lining the streets for Mrs Lovett’s suddenly tasty meat-filled pies (stuffed with a new secret ingredient). The old adage about killing two birds with one stone has never been as appropriate as it is when applied here."

Okayy.. that was rather long. But hey, im promoting the movie for FREE but i dont care coz i love Johnny Depp. i think i have watched all his movies. he's a spectacular actor! dont u guys agree??
