That sentence already tells so much about what to expect from this movie. For those who aren't familiar with Tim Burton's works, the following adjectives should suffice: dark, disturbing, highly entertaining. It's so dark that when you go out of the theater, you'd be surprised to find that the sun is still up. It's so disturbing that I had to cover my eyes a couple of times. It's highly entertaining because despite the gore -- lots of slashed throats in there -- you just can't wait for what happens next. I swear, I will never look at meat pies the same way ever again.
Kudos to Johnny Depp, Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter for such stellar performances! The only thing I could have wished for is for another person to sing for Ms. Bonham Carter because whenever she hits the high notes, I could not make a word out of what she's singing. Other than that, I love her!
When Nicco and I finished the movie, he asked me what I thought of it. The guy's a Johnny Depp fan, so even though I was exhausted from a draining week, I managed to reply with: "I find it absolutely romantic."
He stared at me for a long time before saying, "That's it. You really were meant for me. No other woman could have said that."
