SWEENEY TODD:THE DEMON BARBER OF THE FLEET STREET

Siapa penah tengok filem muzikal neh?

Aku tengok kat Astro tu ari, lupa channel mana, rasanya HBO kot...

Jalan ceritanya mudah je, berkisarkan dendam kesumat yg menguasai diri seorang tukang gunting bernama Sweeney Todd sampai akhirnya, makan dirinya sendiri bila dia jadi 'buta' dengan kebenaran di depan mata dek terlalu hanyut dgn dendamnya...

Filem muzikal dark ini dibarisi oleh antaranya Johnny Depp sebagai Sweeney Todd; dibantu oleh Helena Bonham Carter sebagai Mrs. Lovett, Sasha Baron Cohen, Alan Rickman dan ramai lagi.

Yang menariknya ialah lagu2 dalam filem ni dinyanyikan sendiri oleh para pelakonnya... That is so much better than having to stand 3 hours of nonsensical, illogical storyline & miming actors in Bollywood films... These guys really sing ok...

Kebanyakan lagu dalam cerita ni memang aku suka... Utk post ni, aku letak lirik lagu By The Sea yg dinyanyikan sendiri oleh Helena Bonham Carter... Moh nyanyi sama!

BY THE SEA
Helena Bonham Carter & Johnny Depp

MRS. LOVETT:
(she kisses Todd)
Ooh, Mr. Todd! (kiss)
I'm so happy! (kiss)
I could (kiss)
Eat you up, I really could!
You know what I'd like to do, Mr. Todd? (kiss)
What I dream (kiss)
If the business stays as good?
Where I'd really like to go?
In a year or so?
Don't you want to know?

TODD: (spoken) of course.

LOVETT: Do you really want to know?

TODD: (spoken) Yes. I do.

LOVETT: By the sea, Mr. Todd, that's the life I covet,
By the sea, Mr. Todd, ooh, I know you'd love it!
You and me, Mr. T, we could be alone
In a house what we'd almost own,
Down by the sea!

TODD: Anything you say

LOVETT: Wouldn't that be smashing?

LOVETT:
Think how snug it'll be underneath our flannel
When it's just you and me and the English Channel!
In our cozy retreat kept all neat and tidy,
We'll have chums over ev'ry Friday!
By the sea!
Don'tcha love the weather?
By the sea!
We'll grow old together!
By the seaside,
Woahh
By the beautiful sea!

It'll be so quiet,
That who'll come by it,
Except a seagull
Hoo, hoo!
We shouldn't try it,
Though, 'til it's legal for two-hoo!
But a seaside wedding could be devised,
Me rumpled bedding legitimized!
Me eyelids'll flutter,
I'll turn into butter,
The moment I mutter I do-hoo!

Down by the sea,
Married nice and proper
By the sea
Bring along your chopper
To the seaside hoo hoo!
By the beautiful sea!
