Sweeny Todd ... if I wanted a musical I'd watch freakin Mary Poppin's! It's a good movie just didn't really care for the singing aspect of it.
Didn't you know it was a musical going in to watch it?
I mean, it's cool if you don't like musicals or whatever (usually not my cup of tea either), but I do like musicals if done in a certain style, namely as a comedy or horror flick.
I'm just curious as to what the reactions of the audiences were in theaters when they figured it'd be Johnny Depp slashing throats for 2 hours and they have to sit through him belting out songs for 70% of the flick. They seemed to hardly mention it in commercials.
I like musicals, some of my favorite films are musicals (Amadeus, Moulin Rouge) but actually I didn't know this was a musical, I've been so covered up lately I've out of the loop. I saw the box, saw Johnny Depp on the box ... and rented it. popped it in and they started singing and I was like WTF? Checked the box and saw nothing on it about singing.
I think if I knew it was, I would have liked it if I knew it going in.
