Giving cinematic praise where it's due. Raining down hellfire where it's not.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)
Oh the horror! And I'm not talking about the blood gushing from a
freshly slit throat. No, it's the singing. Endless singing of Broadway
style show tunes that were nearly the death of me.
I have to keep reminding myself that musicals can actually be good, like "Once" and "Across The Universe", that came out around the same time. It was maddening to be smacked over the head with such retched chortling from the Sweeney Todd cast.
A bloody, ear piercing, mess.
