The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Listening to: Nothing.

I watched the movie Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street with Brad, Shannon and Josie this past weekend. It was quite the musical, I must say. All in all, the overall feel of the movie was good and I always do enjoy a good Tim Burton flick.

The songs, no fault to the actors or director, just weren't really my cup of tea. None of them were as memorable as songs of other musical-esque films like Moulin Rouge or Rent. They did help move the story along, but in a strange "out-of-place" kind of way. It felt like the movie was split into two distinctive portions: song or movie.

I'm a bigger fan of when they are able to seamlessly blend the two.
