I, me, ALONE, in the middle of the night, SINGLE HANDEDLY WATCHED Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street!

Hmm, it was rather a very innovative genre; musical thriller. Although I can't understand much of what the actors were saying, but I still understand the plot of the movie nonetheless from the movements of the actors and the camera angles; it always point on the important stuff like... the victims! The throat-slitting scenes were awesome! Mr. Sweeney Todd killed his customers in a very swift and relaxing manner, especially on the scene where he sang that song about Johanna, a girl that Sweeny Todd's sailor friend likes (the sailor was singing with Mr. Todd on the same musical number). But he got very gory on his target; the judge that took care of Johanna. Never knew Johnny Depp could potray a maniacal barber wifh full concentration. In the end, his vengeance was awefully stupid, as he killed his wife that he thought was dead by accident because of Mrs. Lovett's lies (yeap, she's a goner too, gone toast... like literally, baby). He's also a wonderful singer! I think I'm in love with his singing voice, man!
