1. It looks as if they are keeping it a musical...
The only piece I saw of it there was no musical numbers...

Angela Landsbury played the Helen Bohnam Carter roll on broadway...

9. LOL! I guess that's why I don't spend my holidays with family.
:)

But, yes, if I spend the holiday with my extended family I'd probably want a sadistic, violent movie too. :P

13. It is for my family
We've all threatened each other with death if any of us sees it without the others. :evilgrin:

Yup, we're an entire family of JD fans, even the young 'uns. :)

5. And just in time for the Academy Award nominations
"Sweeney Todd" could do very well...including giving Sondheim another Oscar. :-)

VERY eager to see this.

Very compelling...

Johnny Depp just gets better and better...

16. As a huge fan of Sweeney Todd, Sondheim, Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, and Alan Rickman...
this movie is like a perverse dream come true.
I'm going to see it with kagehime while i'm in CO next month :D
