Day 297

Day 297 of the #365drawingchallenge continues #31DaysOfHalloween with a request for The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Sweeney Todd. I saw this movie in the theaters when it came out knowing pretty much nothing about it beyond it was a Tim Burton movie starring Johnny Depp. And back then that was enough for me. Much to my and my girlfriend’s shock they started singing. I know I had seen previews for this and they did not indicate it was a musical. And this was not a pleasant surprise. While I’ve come to appreciate musicals a bit more since then I was not excited for it at the time. I remember not liking the music and thinking the singing wasn’t very good. I have not gone back to watch it since, so maybe I’d appreciate it a lot more now that time has passed. So perhaps I’ll give it another shot some day. I pretty much forgot the movie as soon as I left, even though it seems like it would be something I was really into.
