So, I'm watching the 2007 movie of Sweeney Todd. I'm die-hard Stage Sweeney fan and George Hearn is my favorite.
So why am I so pleasantly surprised?
The cuts to the songs and dialogue are minor. There's enough for me to recognize. The ones I miss the most are the Ballads and the Beggar Woman's extended part. And the chorus parts. And the funny dialogue in A Little Priest. And Kiss Me! WHERE THE HELL IS "KISS ME"?
If I didn't know about Kiss Me, I'd be calling Anthony a creepy stalker. But he isn't. So there.
Johnny Depp = Not bad. He's too quiet for me, personally. Not enough anger and emotion. His singing sounds like a sober Jack Sparrow and Epiphany was totally anticlimactic. Still. Not good, not horrible.
Helena Bonham Carter gets a good solid meh. She strains her voice on the higher notes and her voice is pretty thin (not like I'm one to talk since I'm pretty sure my singing voice is similar) but she is the prettiest of the Mrs. Lovetts. So. Meh.
I absolutely adore Jamie Campbell
