So Sweeney Todd, Hannibal Lector, and Titus Andronicus all walk into a bar.
Okay, so starting a review with a joke might not be the best idea. But never the less, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is considered the first “Musical thriller.” It is one of composer Stephen Sondheim’s most well-known pieces of music and has won a ton of awards and there are productions and tours everywhere…you get the drill. It is personally one of my favorite musicals (in the top ten) and like Phantom I was hesitant to review this film, but gathered my courage and went ahead. The film is actually the only film adaptation of one of Sondheim’s works that Sondheim himself approves of…so far.
The exact story centers on (as told in the film by flashbacks) a barber named Benjamin Barker, who lives with his beloved wife Lucy and their infant daughter, Joanna in London in Victorian-era Burton World London. But when the hypocritical Judge Turpin starts lusting after Lucy, he blames Barker for no crime whatsoever and sends him to prison, then rapes Lucy, causing her to kill herself and adopts Joanna. Fifteen years later, Barker changes his name to Sweeney Todd, breaks out...

Wait! Don't you go, don't you hurry. I almost didn't see you come, can'tcha sit, sit you down SIT! All I meant is that the customers keep coming in, did you come here for a pie, sir? Do forgive me if this place is such a mess. But you can't imagine all the stress!
All the people crowding in, I just have no time, sir! And there's always someone wanting some more pies! Right you are sir, would you like the gin with some more ice?
Mind you I can hardly blame them. There are probably the best pies in London! I know why everybody loves them, I know it, I make them. And good? Yes! The best pies in London! Even that's insult, the best pies in London.
If you doubt it take a bite! Is that just amazing? You have to concede it. It's nothing but tasteful, here drink this, it's too good! The best pies in London.
And no wonder with the price of meat, what it is, when you get it. Never thought I'd live to see the day. No one thinks it's any treat, finding all gross insects, wot are crawling on the street. Mrs.Mooney has a pie shop! Does a business and I notice something great. Lately all the corner's bugs are someplace else! Have to hand it to her! What a great enterprise,...

I was in fourth grade and my best friend came to school and said,
"My brother was watching this movie called Sweeney Todd and it has Johnny Depp in it."
so of course, I got so excited because even then I loved Johnny Depp. She came over after school and showed me By The Sea on Youtube.
I instantly fell in love. We spent the whole afternoon listening to Sweeney Todd songs and from then on, we dreamed about seeing it once we were old enough (we thought it was PG-13 not R).
We didn't see it until we were in seventh grade, but it was AWESOME! She got it for me on DVD and from then on, I was hooked.
Later that year I showed it to two of my best friends and one of my good friends, and got two of them obsessed...now i am held responsible for bringing the DVD to our sleepovers...

This is the official Sweeney Todd prayer, yeah I was really bored.


Our father who art in Fleet street,
Hallowed be thy name,
Thy revenge will come,
on earth as it is in London,
give us our daily shavings,
and forgive us our appetite,
as we forgive those who has a bigger appetite,
Save us from Judge Turpin,
and deliver us from all meat pies,
For Sweeney Todd, Mrs Lovett, Tobias now and forever

Amen

You've stolen whatever I've ever been.
You're the King of crime and I'll never be your Queen.
Now it's too late again.
Trust is never to regain.
I conceed, my love is still there.
About revenge only I too came to care.
"We all deserve to die?", don't we?
So why would feelings change so suddenly?
Even you, even I.
Then, I suspect another lie.
Come and hurt me, my dear.
There's no one to protect me here.
I'm not afraid of you anymore.
What are you waiting for?
There's nothing for me in life.
'Cause of me, you've killed her, since I'll never be your wife.

Why!
Why is everything a lie?
And we can't leave it for the truth!
Just die to see it through!
Lifetime of deceive!
Don't give, you won't receive!

Lifetime sorrow...
Lover becoming foe...
Nothing to fill emptiness.
Forever to kill my own happiness.
For a second-long life a child shown.

This is for anyone who plans on cosplaying from Sweeney Todd.
This particular costume breakdown is for the Demon Barber himself.

I have been cosplaying Sweeney Todd for 3 years now, and have put in a great deal of time researching and looking at pictures of the Sweeney Todd costume. So I thought I would share a bit of what I know.

First we will start out with general items, before I get into smaller details. As you will see in the picture next to this paragraph, you will notice some key items that Sweeney Todd has. If you are going to put together a Sweeney Todd costume, you should at least have a white old fashioned victorian-era shirt (usually made out of linen), a brown double breasted vest, a black and white/grey knit neck scarf, dark blue or black pinstripe pants, brown leather belt with razor holster, white rag to clean your razors off with, metal belt clip (to hold the rag onto your belt), and black or dark brown boots. These are items that are key details for a Sweeney Todd cosplay and they can be seen clearly in the first picture, to the right of this text.

First of all:
Enough of all this blaming judge Turpin on every single bad thing that ever happened!

The man has become something of the big bad wolf around here, the worlds biggest scapegoat!
I know, i know. He desired a pretty woman, used his authority to falsley imprisoned her husband to get him out of the way, and than assaulted her in a room fool of other rich people that found the whole thing to be a great big laugh.
I am not at all saying that what he did was not wrong, i'd be a complete fool to ever think such a thing, nor am i justifying his actions in any way, but just let me explain something.
If it weren't for him, Benjamin Barker would not have lost everything so suddenly and so horribly, but he had nothing to do with the Sweeney Todd's killing spree.
Allot of people here (it may or may not have something to do with that actor that no one will shut up about) seem to be under the inpression that Mr.Todd is nothong but a poor helpless victim of fate that is without blame and his killings of innocent people were completley justified.

I found this and thought it was insane!
Mrs. Lovett Improves Her Pies

Sweeney was a barber
In Fleet Street near the Strand
Cocksure was his nature
And Cockney was his brand.

Lovett was his neighbour,
A cook from Cubitt Town,
Sharing half a cellar,
They both sought high renown.

Sweeney Todd loved Lovett,
But loved her money more;
Planned a treat, did Lovett
For Sweeney, her amore.

Hair-cuts were a penny
And pies brought half a bob
Meat was too expensive,
But Sweeney'd do the job.

Lovett said to Sweeney,
'Why don't you cut their throats?
Drop them in our cellar,
We'll even sell their coats.'

Sweeney thought about it
And set his barber's chair
High above a trap door
To catch the unaware.

Waiting for the razor,
Sedated, warmed and towelled,
Feeling safe, contented,
You don't expect a growled:

Anthony brings Johanna to Sweeney’s to hide her while he goes to get them a coach.

Unable to locate Sweeney in his room, Toby offers to show them down to the Bakehouse, where he last saw Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett. They go down the stairs, just in time to see Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett preparing to dispose of the bodies of the beggar woman, Judge Turpin, and Beadle.

Trying to stop them from running to the law, Sweeney shoves Toby into a corner, where he crumples and doesn’t get up. Meanwhile, Mrs. Lovett has attacked the unsuspecting Anthony, and has her hands around his throat.

Johanna leaps to his aid, screaming, “NOT MY BOYFRIEND YOU BITCH!”, as she shoves her off Anthony, (getting her a few odd looks from Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett, seeing as she’s disguised as a boy), who falls to the ground. The disguised Johanna and Mrs. Lovett fight fiercely. “YOU WILL NEVER TOUCH HIM AGAIN!”, yells Johanna, just as she pushes Mrs. Lovett into the furnace.

Sweeney looked up from his glass to see Mrs. Lovett slightly smiling.
    “What?” He asked, wanting to know what she was thinking about.
    “Hm?” Mrs. Lovett’s head shot up from being in a daze of memories to look at him. “Oh nothing dear.”
Sweeney knocked back another shot and cringed at the taste. There was silence between the two for a moment. Mrs. Lovett plopped her chin in her hand clearly in thought of something. Finally the silence was broken.
    “Mista T,” she began, “do you remember my father?”
Sweeney frowned looking at his glass.
    “How could I forget your father,” he snorted, “he was…just…” Sweeney sighed and took another swig.
    “Pathetic?” Mrs. Lovett said raising an eyebrow.
    “He wasn’t the most pleasant man….”
Mrs. Lovett smirked at the liquid in her glass.
    “Course he wasn’t, notin’ but a mushy lay-about who smoked a hookah all day comin’ home flyin’ ‘igher than a damn butterfly.” she stated in...

Turning Back the Hands of Time
    Only one small candle illuminated the room as the barber pressed upon the peddle of his chair, dropping his last “customer” to the bakehouse below him. Today had been rather rough. The crowds came in larger groups than they had during the previous days of the week. His neck ached and his arms fell limp as he sat down for a moment in his chair. He sighed deeply as the pain in his neck increased. London seemed to be the same every time night crept in. Only the low life would come out at night either drunk or in search of food. The barber’s dark eyes peered out the window of his shop to see the pleasant night being eaten away by dark clouds. Rain was normal in London, it came almost every week to torment those souls who enjoyed nothing more but fresh air and crisp sunlight to bask in. Sweeney Todd however, was not one of those people. He didn’t mind the rain, in fact it came as a pleasure to him for it helped him think. He would think of his beautiful wife and darling child he once had before that awful day where Judge Turpin had destroyed his life forever.

After Nellie's dramatic explanation of why she didn't tell him his wife had lived, poor, miserable Sweeney decided that he needed someone to fill his empty heart, even if she was insane. They danced, sang, moved away, and lived happily in a sick, twisted way. Sweeney Todd was never the same, but he was a bit happier with Nellie by his side. They had two children, 2 dogs, and a cat. the whole family lived together until their children went to college. then, Nellie ans Sweeney died at the same age, 102.

I was in the Random spot and was asked to write a random story. "Have a Little Priest" was playing on my iPod, so I decided to base it off the movie.




There was a barber and his wife, and she was beautiful. She took her barber husband out for lunch every thursday into Nelly's meat pie shop. Little did they know, they weren't eating meat pies at all! They were really eating rotten cherry pie. You see, Nelly Lovette had a difficult time obtaining meat for her pies, so she secretly started gathering cherries. Once she ran out of her entire supply of meat, she turned to the cherries. She noticed they went bad, but she said to herself, "Hey, this is London. Nobody comes here to benefit their health. In fact, I was once told London is a hole in the wall like a great black pit and the vermin of the world inhabbit it, but not for long.... because we all deserve to die." She chuckled to herself, thinking about how fooling that silly beggar lady was. She noticed her spoiled cherry pies were WAY to dry to possibly pass as meat pies, so she visited her barber husband (not the same barber who has a wife, although, he is a barber who apparently has a wife) to...

hey everybody!

I know there's already stories on here of how fans found out about sweeney todd, but i thought id like to share mine.

About seven months ago, like around June, i was looking up twilight parodies/spoofs and came across the hillywood show's twilight parody.(at the time, i didnt really know who they were.) i thought "wow, that was incredible!" so i went 2 their website and started watching their vids. and all of you who r a big fan of johnny depp, you'll love the show. so, i got 2 the sweeney todd episodes. i knew who sweeney todd was but i didnt really know the story. i just, you know, thought that he was killing people for no apparent reason:P i started to really like the music. that led me to buy the cd. which led me to buy the movie. which then led me 2 buy the movie companion book. when it came out 2 theaters and when i saw the trailers, i didnt pay much attention to it. now i do! oh ya and this was also how i am a big fan of johnny depp.

Well,it was around Christmas before the DVD came out and I was watcing Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix with my family,and we were on the part when Harry and the rest of the people go in the misistry. Then we got on the part when Bellatrix comes out. So I ask my mom "Hey mom,who is that?" She told me that it was Bellatrix Lestrange. (I know this doesn't sound like Sweeney Todd yet,but it will get there,trust me!) So I said "Cool,who plays her?" So my mom told me, "I'm not sure,go look it up on the imdb." So I did,I saw that she was played by Helena Bonham Carter. (This is when the Sweeney Todd obsession begins!) So I looked up what other movies she was in,and I saw she was in this movie called Sweeney Todd. I thought to myself 'What's this?" So I looked it up and I saw the plot and I said "That seems way to gruesome,murdering people and making them into meat pies? I can't watch this!"...But I looked it up on youtube anyway. I watched some of the songs and I thought it was the coolest thing! I watched them over and over and over again! But once it got to the bloody parts I thought it would make me sick. It bugged me a little bit at first,but not enough to the point where I...

I told her no. So i go home and tell my mom and dad on Friday after girl scouts my dad says look at what i found and i look and scream SWEENEY TODD YOU FOUND IT! he told me he rented it for the weekend so i got home and watched it. My first thought was Rachel never said it was Rated R! i continue and then i see anthony and think is that Helena but i soon saw mrs.lovett and knew it was Helena who was mrs.lovett. A few weeks later my sister mom and i watch it since we bought it my mom couldn't watch him kill people and sister kept saying that had hurt when they went down the shoot. now i can't stop watching it! Helena and Johnny made it amzing.

This is probably going to be the shortest article ever but hey if its concerning Johnny im sure that'll make up for the space!
So i've started considering Sweeney Todd/Johnny Depp slang such as OMJ (Oh my Johnny) and Who gives a todd and Deppinately and so on......But i was wondering if it would be popular? what do ye think?
I am Obsessed with Johnny so i decided to do this I would have put this in a pick but i think this is a lot more personal.

I know lots of fans, such big fans that they know EVERYTHING, then sadly they come across a quiz. How many years have Johnny Depp and Tim Buirton been working together? When I saw that I felt crazy, umm....15 years? 4? I chose one and got it wrong, but heres my thought.

You think you know everything, you do, That question and alot of quizes on fanpop say how many years have they worked together, BUT! Thats not a question that has to do with Sweeney Todd!!!
It has to do with Tim and Johnny!
So if you get questions about Tim or Johnny or Helena wrong, but you get the ones about the movie, You know LOTS or maybe EVERYTHING about the movie, those questions are about them, not the movie!

IM at school right now, Woodshop class, I cant build a car till i pass the test so Im writing this, because its been on my mind all day.

Thankyou for reading
