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

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
