Sweeney Todd

To say that my fiance and I have a DVD collection is an understatement. I think we're almost neck and neck with Blockbuster. We have, literally, hundreds of DVD's. It may seem silly, but considering that you need to take out a second mortgage on your home to afford going to the movies these days, purchasing a DVD for $13.99 instead of going to the theater is becoming a lot more appealing. Not to mention that the snacks at home are a lot less expensive and your feet don't stick to your living room floor (or at least they shouldn't).
Today is a good movie day here in the Northeast; overcast with that moist smell in the air. Today is also the day that one of my favorite movies of the past year, Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, is being released on DVD. I'll admit I have a thing for dark movies (especially those starring Johnny Depp) and this one in particular was amazing. Yes, it is a musical, but I implore you to see past that fact and see the film, directed by Tim Burton, if you haven't already.
So I am off now to pick up the DVD, and I think I'll scoop up a copy of James and the Giant Peach while I'm at it.
