Though it did decent business at the box office, I'm thinking that Sweeney Todd will kill on DVD. It's Burton's best film since Edward Scissorhands. I enjoyed Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, but it's nice to see him in something less hammy. I understand that David Cross did Alvin and the Chipmunks because he needed the dough, but what's Jason Lee's excuse? He can retire on his Earl money. How about something less crappy next time? John from Cincinnati was obviously too elliptical for anyone to completely puzzle out, but I still liked it. Brian Van Holt is always aces in my book and Emily Rose was a revelation in a small role.
