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

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?
