I showed Edward Scissorhands to my cousin, and she said that she didn't like the ending. She thought that Edward should have gotten real hands and married Kim and lived together happily ever after. Personally, I think the ending was really good. The two of them getting married was unrealistic, mainly because, well, Edward will stay young forever. What did you all think about the ending? 'Cause I'm weird, so my opinion is most likely different than yours

I have to say that honestly Tim Burton is not my favorite director. But all his movies do have a certain off-kilter feel to them that make them interesting.

The ending was oh so sad. I agree that they probably shouldn't have gotten married, but to leave him up there all by himself was kind of cruel in my opinion. He made so many sacrifices to try to make everyone happy and was so misunderstood. They should have put some kind of safety guard on the scissors or something, or turned them into some kind of hand swiss army knife.

Chiyo, I am currently studying in the United States and they gave the movie and R rating which still means that all the angtsy emo children can still catch a glimpse of Johnny Depp hacking of his customers heads only if they are accompanied by good old mom and dad. I saw the movie in the theatre and thoroughly enjoyed it; Johnny depth did such an incredible job bringing the character of Sweeney Todd to life. (Some people may still think that he can't sing for s*%&, but I thought that he did a quite a good job.) Overall, I was rather impressed with Tim Burton's take on Sweeney Todd although he cut out one of the musical's greatest songs. I am sure that once is appears on DVD the little emo children shall watch in to their hearts content surrounded by meat pies and Johnny Depp merchandise.

~Was it just me or was half the cast of Harry Potter in the movie?

Just for those of you interested Tim Burton is working on an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland with Disney/Pixar. It'll be cgi motion-capture (not stop-motion, sorry stop-motion fans) and they start filming in May. Expect it 2010.

He is also doing a remake of Frankenweenie in cgi, but with stop motion.


I'm expecting Alice to look like this only more Burton-ish.

I saw Sweeney Todd about 3 days after it was released here in the States. (seen it twice, actually... >.>) I really loved it, though I've never seen the original Sweeney Todd.

Fushigi- Yeah, I've heard about that! I'm so interested to see what the Alice in Wonderland film will look like overall.

I went to see Sweeney Todd for the fourth time two days ago (yep, it was the last time). So yep, loved it! : D Was waiting for this movie for months so I went to watch it a bit biased at first, even though I'd had my fair share of 'EW' comments about Depp's and Bonham Carter's singing performances. It all sounded very nice to me. And I just heart these two together on screen, they're so smexy pure eye-candy and the movie wouldn't have been the same if one of them hadn't been there, IMO; they did such a stunning job of bringing the characters to life, and the way they can go from dramatic to funny is amazing ('By the sea' = <3). I also thought the songs went very well with the scenes, in a way that we didn't get bored with them. The ending was perfect.

The movie was rated PG-13 in France. Personally, I thought the ratings it got in the US and the UK were really exaggerated, since the blood was obviously fake and most of the 'violent' scenes were more funny than anything. But I'm glad Burton didn't back up and kept it as bloody as it was supposed to be. Also, the wars about which version is better are retarded. Both musical and movie are awesome-sauce in their own ways, but too different to be compared (Just how can you compare Hearn's theatrical, hilarious Sweeney to Depp's much somber one? Nah).

'Buffy and Angel had gone out before and Buffy wasn't really comfortable talking to Spike and Angel at the same time, because now Spike and Buffy had been going out for 6 months and Buffy was afraid that Angel might tell Spike that him and Buffy went out, but it turns out that Angel had told Spike that they went out, Spike was heartbroken that Buffy never told him that they went out, so Spike broke up with Buffy to get back at her for not telling him that Angel and Buffy went out.'

Agreed, now I have seen it I can only assume the 18 certificate was because the death of that one particular person was carried out more violently than the others, otherwise the gore is very brief as once their throats are slit they're down the shute.

I saw a BBC adaptation of Sweeney Todd a few years ago and I didn't think anything could top that. Sweeney Todd is actually a very old story and has a few variations. The one I loved (not a musical version) had Mr Todd love Mrs Lovett from afar and as far as I can remember when he brought her meat she had no idea what it was. It was dark, end of story.

Now a musical cannot be pure horror not matter how much it tries, but I don't think I've known Depp in a darker role. I love his version of Sweeney BUT in the context of a Burton musical. Had he played Todd in a regular version he would have looked like a poor stereotype. Lovett is another amazing character, quirky and yet takes everything in her stride, perfectly played by the naturally quirky Bonham Carter.

I suppose I have two real complaints, one was how long it took to really get in to the story with then the action feeling so brief. I know they have to try and include the love story but it felt a little tacked on, used just to add important characters. Two is the ending Throat slit, blood pores nicely so as to not ruin the painful scene, credits role. I didn't expect a more dramatic ending, but there is no follow up as to the characters who live. Its like all you need to know is Todds dead, sod the other characters they spent time telling you about
