Sweeney Todd review

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 29 February 2008 10:54 (A review of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street)

I travelled 55 kilometres and had to beg my parents to give me a ride just so I could see this movie on its official premiere day (Feb 29) here in Finland — can you believe we had to wait all this time? — and let me tell you, it was so worth the trouble!

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is absolutely brilliant. I've heard so many people complain about it being a musical (I'm not terribly fond of musicals either) but I rather liked how the singing and the story worked together! Ranging from adoring to murderous, the music helped to create the different atmospheres needed for each scene. I also think all the actors did a really good job at singing, I don't care if anyone else says otherwise.

Sweeney Todd is dark — certainly the darkest movie I have ever seen — in a very Tim Burton-y way but it also has lighter moments and touches of humour here and there. There is also a lot of (fake-looking) blood all over the place but it works really well. Even I thought it looked good and I can't really watch splatter films or anything too gory without getting annoyed at all the blood that is sprayed around. In this movie the great story and the well-played characters helped to keep the balance.

Full marks to all the actors and the director. This movie will definitely stay at the top of my list of favourite movies for a long, long time.

Not my cup of tea.

Posted : 10 years, 7 months ago on 21 December 2007 02:02 (A review of Strangers with Candy)

I love most comedies but occasionally I come across one that I just can't stand and Strangers with Candy is definitely one of them. I simply didn't find any part of the movie very amusing or funny and I thought most of the characters were either annoying or just frustratingly bad and uninteresting.

I haven't seen the tv series and I don't particularly want to.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas review

Posted : 10 years, 9 months ago on 3 October 2007 06:59 (A review of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas)

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is pure crack (quite literally) and that's why it's so brilliant! It's hard to predict what's going to happen but you can bet that it's most likely going to be something very strange and that, I think, is the beauty of the movie.

After seeing some interviews about the man he's portraying, I think Depp was simply fantastic. Hunter S. Thompson sure is an interesting character!

Remember kids, drugs are bad! ;D

Edward Scissorhands review

Posted : 10 years, 9 months ago on 3 October 2007 06:19 (A review of Edward Scissorhands)

I'm sure most of you will agree that the story of Edward Scissorhands is touching beyond words. I first saw the movie when I was just five or six years old and it completely captivated me. I now re-watched it after a long while and I still find it as amazing and unique as I did when I was a child — it just made me cry a lot more.

An absolutely brilliant movie.
