5.0 out of 5 stars Todd's tonsorial tragicomedy Feb. 22 2008
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
There was a young barber who loved his fine wife
His wife and his daughter - well, they were his life
`til one day fair Lucy, Judge Turpin espied
And vowed he would take her and make her his bride

He called up the Beadle, and trumped up a charge
Sent him to Australia on a prison barge
But fifteen years later the barber returned
With revenge in his heart, `cos he really got burned

He found Nellie Lovett, a baker of pies
Who was running real low on her filling supplies
Before long the duo were rolling in dough
He cutting on top, and she cooking below

One day as he practiced tonsorial slaughter
He learned of the fate of his beautiful daughter
He worked out a plan and then stood by his chair
And waited for those who'd wronged him to appear

This movie sure rocks, but it's not for the weak
As blood spurts and gushes, and arteries leak
The Director's amazing, the screenplay surreal
It'll make you think twice on the whole meat pie deal

Cohen, Bonham-Carter and Spall add some zing
While Snape and Jack Sparrow prove that they can sing
This tale of the barber, the baker and judge
Should give the careers of the actors a nudge

I watched it in awe as the ending drew near
And I said "This is my movie choice for the year"
I might be quite biased, I love Johnny Depp
But I give it 5 stars, and a resounding YEP!!!

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS)

1. Don't mess with a guy who wields a razor
2. Revenge is meat
3. There'll be pie from the sky when you die
4. What goes around comes around

5.0 out of 5 stars The years have changed him Feb. 23 2008
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Murder. Cannibalism. Death. Obsession. Revenge. Blood. Goth makeup. And lots of razors -- "at last, my arm is complete again!" Sweeney Todd exults.

Somehow it doesn't come as a shock to me that Tim Burton adapted Stephen Sondheim's musical "Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" -- or that he somehow spun it into something so delicious. That dark, grotesque, hilariously melodramatic story is perfectly suited to Burton's style, and Johnny Depp is absolutely stunning as the titular bloody barber.

The malignant Judge Turpin (Alan Rickman) lusts after the wife of Benjamin Barker (Depp), so he convicts Barker of a crime he didn't commit, and enfolds his family into his evil hands.

But fifteen years later, the Barker returns to London and sets up a barber shop over Mrs. Lovett's ghastly meat pie store. Of course, he's enraged when he learns that his wife was raped and since poisoned herself, and that his daughter is the ward of the lecherous Judge. Enraged and maddened, Barker renames himself "Sweeney Todd" and vows revenge.

And he finds that he LOVES using his razors for a far bloodier task than shaving. With the help of Mrs. Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter) -- who finds a thrifty use for those bodies -- Todd cuts a bloody swathe through all who have wronged him. And when his daughter is punished for refusing to marry the cruel Judge, Sweeney closes in to get his revenge at last.

There's always been a gothic look to Burton's movies, and he's always dabbled in very twisted, macabre storylines. And he really tops himself with "Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" -- London is painted in black, white and grey, right down to the ghoulish faces of the characters, and their bleak little dens of horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different Johnny Depp ! Nov. 7 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is quite a departure for Johnny Depp fans...who knew he could sing ??
While quite gory in parts, this movie is captivating, and the actors keep you interested to see where the story is going. It's important to watch this from start to finish without interruption, if possible, otherwise the intensity can be lost.
I would recommend this movie to adults, as children may be scared.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for all tastes... March 30 2014
By amakel
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I purchased this mostly for the music in a Blu-ray format, and did no know that it gets pretty gruesome.
I would have preferred they had used 'professional' singers at the end. Cheaper to buy than rent!
Delivery was prompt as usual by Amazon.
