New movies: Sweeny Todd, Own the Night

I just watched the trailer for Sweeny Todd and it looks like it is going to be awesome. Admittedly, I have never seen the play version, but have heard good things about it.

It was an alright movie with a cool concept, but certain parts, such as the ending, were extremely laughable. Ridiculous, actually. After watching the movie, I would like to read the book to see if the story ... Continue Reading
