Lets talk about Movies shall we? I just want to discuss two of them with you, ok?
Last night I had to choose between two movies, Hard Candy
. Since Trainspotting started a little earlier I tried that first. Needless to say once I realized that I couldn't understand a damned thing they were saying I abandoned ship.
Hard Candy was a very hard movie to watch. There were a great many times I wanted to change the channel but just couldn't bring myself to do it. The movie is about a 14 year old girl who meets a man online that she suspects is a pedophile and wants to teach him a lesson/punish him. But there is a bit more to the movie than that suggests. And there are elements that I don't want to give away because they would ruin the movie.
Frankly the girl is nuts. Pure and simple. And at times I truly started to feel bad for the pedophile. Isn't that just crazy?
Honestly I am not the most eloquent person, so just see this movie. It is a hard movie that deals with a hard subject and revolves around 2 characters for the majority of the movie.
Second I wish to briefly tell you that you HAVE HAVE HAVE to see Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
. Seriously. I had hoped it was good, but it was better than what I had hoped. My big draw to this movie was Johnny Depp, and *GASP* the fact that it was a Musical, and Mr. Hotness himself was singing. (Unlike his last musical Cry Baby
where it was all lip synched.) I went into this movie knowing nothing about Sweeney Todd except that it was a Broadway show and Mr. Todd was a murderer. All I can say is thank goodness Tim Burton went with a cartoonish blood color otherwise it would have been entirely too much.
Out of curiosity, does anyone know of any other Musicals that might be coming out soon? I can't seem to get enough.
