Attend the Tale

Every image or scrap of news I hear or see about the Sweeney Todd movie just raises my expectations more. And our first look at Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs. Lovett is no exception. I haven't been this jazzed for a film in a long while.

Until Whenever

I remain highly skeptical. Every time Tim Burton touches a popculture property and puts his stamp on it, I'm (ahem) less than impressed. He also has little regard for source material, at least if his comment re: comic books is to be taken at face value.

His original visions and work on less iconographic pieces is always interesting, but I'm just not sure about his willingness to let original flavors seep through.

I can brook no argument with your points, but each little sliver I see seems just right so far. Call me a cockeyed optimist!
