My friend just gave me an actual copy of the motion picture soundtrack of Sweeney Todd! Thought I might tell everyone that it is sounding good!

I'm seeing the movie tomorrow! I really can't wait. I'll let everyone know what I thought.

OoOoOokay...

Firstly, the soundtrack is released on the 18th.
Secondly, the movie isn't released until the 21st.

Nice try.

Ever hear of early releases? Press screenings?

PLENTY of people here have seen the movie already. There's really no reason to assume this person is lying. Bragging, maybe. Lying, likely not.

I had to turn down a pre-screening last Thursday in NY. I was not happy. But I was at August:Osage County so it was all good!
Just give the world Love.

I wonder why so many always jump to their own interpretation and not read a few lines here written because of sheer childlike excitement of being given a toy or being promised to see a cartoon movie?

"The way he made it sound... I just 'assumed' he was talking out of his @$$. Forgive me."........Forgive me too, it just makes me sick for people to always assume. I meant not to degrade, just "spending" my two cents at 1:08am. Peace.

Thanks for all your support everyone.

As a matter of fact, I have a friend at school who has WAY too many connections and is able to get us into any movie weeks before they come out. I was able to see Sweeney Todd last week but was unable to make it. Therefore, I am going to the second advanced screening tonight. Yes, I speak the truth!

Also, through this same friend of mine, I was able to get an advanced copy of the soundtrack. I don't really understand why I would make something up like this...

"Ignore the ignorant."
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."
--Aristotle

I believe the soundtrack CD has already been released in Europe. A friend of mine in Paris got it earlier this week and I just downloaded it from him. I won't listen to it until AFTER I've seen the film, though.

Do you think anyone is getting dressed up for the movie? I was thinking about doing it for the midnight show next thursday night. Going as the Michael cervais sweeney. With the white shirt, black tie, black pants, and leather coat. Maybe doing some make-up

Going dressed up?????? "Going as the Michael cervais sweeney." My god you are barking mad.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I'd be waiting until Friday, as I'm not getting the CD on Tuesday (hopefully on Christmas!).

Well, I'M waiting.

I have the entire 2-CD waiting patiently. I won't listen to any of it until AFTER I've seen the film. re: Got the Sweeney CD!

I've learned from the past -- wait until AFTER you see whatever (show or film) before listening to the soundtrack or cast recording.

No, no I don't, but you've inspired me to dress as a nun when Doubt comes out at the attend the Mamma Mia movie in the guise of an illegitmate fetus.

If it's a show (or movie, I guess), that I don't know the music to, I almost always wait. I have a hard time getting into things I haven't yet seen, and I also just think I have a better appreciation of it after I've seen it. But since I already know Sweeney, I don't feel so bad giving in to my lack of patience. re: Got the Sweeney CD!
