Sweeney Todd looks really cool. I’m not the biggest Tim Burton fan, but I love the musical and Johnny Depp is pretty much awesome in everything he does. I saw this article and was sort of taken aback. Possible Oscar material? I can see maybe for art direction or something, but I wasn’t really thinking that it could be nominated for the big awards. It’s very rare that a horror film is a musical, let alone is nominated for an Oscar. Kinda cool if you ask me.
My beef with Sweeney Todd is in the advertising. Nobody realizes that this film is a musical. I wonder if there will be a backlash?
