    Sweeney Todd. Great movie. 9/10 I encourage everyone to go see it. Please skip National Treasure 2. Its really bad. I'm a big fan of Tim Burton and this movie is one of his best.

    Looking forward to this. I'm a drama nerd, so it's right up my alley.

    It's a musical, so they are really doing it a disservice by promoting it as a horror film. But most musical fans don't want to see such a gruesome story and horror fans don't want a musical.

    Dark musicals can work pretty well. And horror fans only show up to movies to complain about how unscary they are anyway, so it works.

    Okay, I'm gonna take a stab in the dark and say that Danny Elfman wrote the music.

    Surely not in a Burton/Depp movie!

    Does Depp ever make a bad movie?

    Maybe Secret Window but in general you know your getting a quality movie with Depp.

    Here's two huge Johnny Depp suckfests for your list.. Pirates 3 and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Burton get's a huge demerit on this one too)..

    I suspect Sweeny Todd will be good though - never hurts that Sacha Baron Cohen is in the film...

    I hear you but I enjoyed the 3rd Pirates movie as much as the others.

    Choc Factory was a frustrating in offering nothing new whatsoever but I still like Depp's interpretation of Wonka.Some old movies are perfect & should be simply left alone & never remade.
