Are you seriously considering Cage over Depp?
Well, I wanted my husband to think he actually had a choice. He did choose Cages movie until I reminded him that the kids wanted to see that one with us. So we went and saw Depp.
Sweeny Todd, well done movie. Depp, haunting and a tad bizarre, just the way Mr. Burton apparently wants him in all his movies. Helen something Carter has a beautiful singing voice, and Allan Ruckman just has to stand in front of the camera to impress me. Perhaps its those cold dark eyes of his. The young boy was probably the best singer out of the bunch.
Don't want to give anything away, but it's worth going to see at the theater. Of course I will probably own it when it comes out. As for the direction. Well, this is Tim Burton we're talking about here, and although I know nothing about the actual musical, I have a feeling that this musical and Tim were born to work together. Still... I liked Hairspray better.
But Depp! Oh that man can act!
4 out of 5 stars for me.
