Sweeney Todd


I am in love with Johnny Depp, this much is known by pretty much everyone on earth. But, never have I heard him sing. And putting Johnny Depp in a horror musical with a huge singing role is pretty much my dream come true. Sweeney Todd is gory, funny, scary, gross, and fantastic from beginning to end. And Johnny Depp sings. He's seeking revenge, he's pissed, and yet still sensitive and romantic all the same, with a Broadway singing voice to boot.

When I said I was totally in love with Johnny Depp before, I was wrong. NOW I am completely in love with him. And his voice.

And it's funny, he was iffy on taking the role beCAUSE of his singing voice. Apparently he was nervous about what he sounded like :P

I know!! Which is, of course, the cutest thing ever. I'm almost positive he got some training, though, because in parts his voice is very "Broadway" and I don't think anyone comes by that completely naturally.

Have you seen it? If not, do it immediately! Start your year off right! :)

I have not. I do plan on seeing it, but I may have to wait until it comes out in the video stores because I'm a damn poor college student. I did, however, see Juno at midnight at AMC in Eden Prairie the night before it came out. Also good.

I went and saw it again yesterday because I couldn't get the songs out of my head. Yep, braved the theater ALONE on New Year's Day. Depp ought to propose to me for that kind of grand gesture.
