this afternoon peter and i went to see tim burton’s sweeney todd. once i saw in the credits that it was based on the musical my heart sort of sank. there was a time when i didn’t mind musicals, but sitting through dreamgirls taught me just how much i dislike musicals. i didn’t dislike sweeney todd as much as dreamgirls, but i wasn’t all that impressed. i did like the colour of the film. very muted, some scenes almost looked cross processed even. but in the end it left me wondering if tim burton is ever going to make a film that i really like again.
