Music and Murder = My Kinda Movie

I watched Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street tonight on HBO.

Here are the reasons why I love that movie:

  • Two words: Johnny Depp
  • Two more words: Johnny singing
  • And two more words: Johnny's kick-ass hairdo...

Ok, that was more than two words, but I was on a role.

  • It's a musical and a horror film. It's violence with a live soundtrack. I've always said that the one thing missing from Texas Chainsaw Massacre was singing... and the one thing missing from Rent was bloody murder. I mean sure, West Side Story had gang fights and murder... but it wasn't all blood and guts and stuff, so it doesn't count. The dancing really got in the way of the whole horror thing... damn pirouetting Puerto Ricans.

I wish we all sung more.

I sing a lot...

To the dogs...

Is it a bad sign that they try to attack me?
