I still can't believe they threw out a Tom Stoppard script in favour of one by the guy who did American Pie
Also, forgot to mention, I saw Sweeney Todd. 'twas most brilliant. The music was, of course, great, and unlike other musical-to-screen adaptations (e.g. Hairspray) everyone could actually sing, relatively speaking. It didn't always seem to jell, though - the "By the Sea" sequence seemed particularly incongruous, perhaps because it wholeheartedly tipped the scales towards 'comical' where before there was uneasy ambiguity. "A Little Priest" is as epic as ever; a bit dissappointed they culled the chorus sequences (i.e. the Ballad of Sweeney Todd) but at least the music's still there. Anyway, I heartily recommend it, if you don't mind a little stylised graphic gore.
