So last night Wolf and I watched Sweeny Todd. Let me ask you this: when did it become acceptable to glorify sociopathic murder and cannibalism? Oh, wait. It’s always been acceptable. But not to me.
I thought it was awful. But then I’m not surprised because I don’t really like Tim Burton movies. They are melodramatically macabre and predictably boring. Sure, there’ll be lots of silly costumes and blood but one of his movies is like all the rest.
What I don’t understand is why progressive non-violent souls like Wolf like these kind of movies. I can only assume it’s their way to act out humanity’s innate violent tendencies without actually hurting anyone. Or maybe it’s because we’ve grown up on violence (hours and hours of Tom and Jerry) so it’s no biggie to him.
I was pleasantly surprised to learn Johnny Depp and Alan Rickman can actually sing.
Yea, so on my scale it gets a 1. I’d give it a zero but I don’t have a zero on my scale.
