Saw Sweeny Todd last night, it was alright, but it just made me want to see the stage version.
The visuals were too inconsistent (no, not just the bits where it was meant to be like that) it looked ike several films edited together. While it was mostly just a stylised costume drama Depp and HBC were wandering around like kids going to a My Chemical Romance gig in Harajuku. It was all over the place.
Burton made what is possibly my favourite film of all time (Ed Wood natch') and this isn't quite the return to form I'd hoped for.
