Juno and Sweeny Todd

i just saw Juno and Sweeny Todd.

i give Juno 5 stars. It was a great comedy. It made me laugh a lot and just feel good in general. The soundtrack was great too. It had a lot of Kimya Dawson songs on it, which was cool. I really just loved pretty much everything about it. It was refreshing, funny, cool... i dunno. Its been a while since i've seen such a good light comedy. I recommend it. There are some great lines in the film that just made me laugh my ass off. Totally thumbs up.

Sweeny Todd on the other hand is not a light movie at all. It was different than any other Tim Burton movie i can think of, although it was obviously done in his style. The character of Sweeny Todd looked a lot like Edward Scissorhands, without, well, the scissor hands. I mean, they were both played by Johnny Depp, so obviously they would look somewhat alike, but the costumes were very Gothic like in Edward's castle.
It was also a LOT bloodier than any other Tim Burton film i can think of. And some of it was quite gross.
It was good though. i enjoyed it. I would give it 4 stars.

i think Moo is trying to get my attention so i'm off for now. peace

The blood was a little too fake for my taste.

yeah? are you into blood and lasher films and stuff?
my friend machete is in love with bloody films. she has a whole room in her house dedicated to it

This is going to sound totally weird, but I hate gore! It's just... I expected the blood to be more realist considering how popular they KNEW the movie was going to be.

no, thats cool. i think maybe tim burton made the blood unrealistic on purpose, especially since he knew so many people would see it. i liked the unrealisticness of it actually. it was amusing

Loved Sweeney Todd....I love that there is no happy ending. Made me happy, for some strange reason.

Looking forward to seeing Juno. I can't believe I haven't gotten around to it yet.

yeah, it really doesnt have a happy ending at all. but if it did it really would not have gone well with the rest of the dark film

Juno hasn't been released over here yet but I can't WAIT to see it! It looks great =)

I loved Sweeney Todd, I'm pretty much in love with every single actor in that film <3 The only thing about it was that the songs weren't really that memorable, I've pretty much forgotten them already =/

Normally I wouldn't be able to handle so much gore in a film but because it was Burton he made his typical unrealistic blood like in Sleepy Hollow, just how I like it =)

i liked the unrealistic blood as well, and i agree, the songs were not nearly as memorable as some musicals, but yeah, it was still cool.

i actually havent seen sleepy hollow yet for whatever reason, so when i said it was bloodier than most tim burton films, i guess i wasn't giving a full educated review there... is sleepy hollow as bloody?

Jan. 25th, 2008 07:33 pm (UTC)

yeah, they were good.

if the reason juno doesnt look like your type of movie is cuz its a romantic comedy- try to overlook that. i am not a big fan of that genre, but juno is way more than just a simple "rom-com". its very good
Jan. 26th, 2008 05:10 pm (UTC)
loved both movies so much.
Jan. 26th, 2008 08:39 pm (UTC)
word. yeah they were good

Jan. 29th, 2008 09:09 am (UTC)

Jan. 31st, 2008 12:44 am (UTC)
