Aww so sorry you didn't like it Kate, i still really liked it, yes i agree that there were a few too many songs but the brill acting and the stunning visuals more than made up for it for me. Ah well you can't win them all.

Going to see cloverfield tonight......*excited!* :D

I loved Sweeney, though they kept building up to the slashing and I'd be going "yes :)... YES... YES COME ON SWEENEY :D!!!... OH GOD ON..." and then someone would walk in the door and I'd shout "NO *beep* NO YOU WERE SO CLOSE :x "

Maybe this is Depp/Bonham-Carter/Burton bias as I'm a teenager, but I loved it :lol:

Some of the songs were very naff, but it's a musical, there's bound to be some dud songs. Rickman was sexy 8)

Yes, I loved it too, visually it was impressive and the songs were fine,when you remember it was more of an operetta in the style of Gilbert and Sullivan rather than an actual musical.

Plus Depp is NEVER bad in anything in my opinion and Tim Burton is genuis.

Plus I found it very darkly funny!

only the quite frankly ludicrous trouser bulges (YES I mean YOU Rickman and Borat!)
You're...you're complaining about trouser bulges? Oh God I never complain about bulges. It's all just fire for my imagination. And you say Alan Rickman has a ludicrous trouser bulge?

Ah, that hits the spot.

Oh, and seen Cloverfield. Loved it. It's the way forward, or something. Also, THAT's how you use ideas from the movie Alien in your film! Take note, rubbish makers of things like Alien VS Predator.

Just seen The Nines on region 1 DVD too, which was totally, totally awesome! It made Melissa McCarthy the "favourite"! It had Ryan Reynolds abusing himself! It actually all made sense in the end!

Am now eagerly awaiting Definitely, Maybe, because Ryan Reynolds is a God among men and should be worshipped as such, even when in a romcom.
Hello my darling it's me again. Where are you?

It could get funnier if we keep doing it.

I was MASSIVLEY dissapointed with cloverfield....i know some of you have said you loved it even my best friend loved it, i however just felt it lacked something. It was a fantastic idea having it all on handheld camera and it did add to the tension, but i dunno i just wasn't feeling it.....brilliant special effects though. I don't think i liked any of the characters, maybe it was that what put me off. I dunno.....make up your own mind and go see it though, cos its obviously a film thats dividing the masses.

What part does Rickman play in ST? I have a soft spot for him. I didn't know he was in it. I should probably see it cos I do like Burton/Depp films. Johnny Depp continues to prove to be the best actor of his generation I think and one day he'll be honoured properly.

I pretty much agree with Kate actually. I WANTED to like it, but there was something more style than substance about Sweeney Todd. It's not the songs, as I love the musical done "live". I just don't think Depp and Bonam-Carter are very good singers!

Oh, and how DARE THEY miss out the Balad of Hillary Briss- ahem, I mean Sweeney Todd??? That's the BEST song of the film! And the Gents connection! Although I guess the gents used "My Friends" as well, didn't they?
And I'll stay here till the trail's cold and return again with my meaty gold
You want it! You can't get enough of Hilary Briss and his special stuff...

I didn't know where to post this (Chit Chat maybe?) but feck it. I am so mad at the BAFTAs. Where were the Hot Fuzz nominations? (In a bit of a HF place at the mo!) Surely the BAFTAs, concentrating on British films, are the only major awards where it has a chance of winning apart from the populist ones where the public actually vote. And yet it totally ignored the best British film out this film year - not that I've seen any others :lol: but it must be! There was a 1 second clip in a montage of films out this year and no nominations. I hate how comedies are ignored. They are no less worthy than dramas! Why is it always the serious films that get the prestige?! An amazing British film like this and it isn't honoured. I think it's a travesty. This is what British films should be about. It's such a quality piece of work. The intelligent plotline, great acting and, although I admit I know nothing about directing, Edgar seems a top-class sophisticated director to me. Did you see him in the audience? He should have been crying into his seat at the lack of notice his film got.

And relax. :lol:

Just been to see Juno tonight, absolutely adored it! Such a genuine and sweet and funny film. I seriously can't say enough good things about it.

Juno is about a 16 year old girl called Juno, who accidently gets pregnant. She decides to give the baby away to a couple who are unable to have children. Juno is quite smart mouthed though and is pretty ace, Ellen Page who plays her is so ace. It follows her pregnancy and what happens to her, its just a lovely story and very bittersweet. Very cool soundtrack too.

Here's the official website if you fancy having a look. http://www.foxsearchlight.com/juno/

I'll second that DWITS, just saw it today. Brilliant performances from all the cast, especially Ellen Page and Michael Cera. Jason Bateman is lovely, aaah. Great soundtrack too. :)
