OH DEAR GOD.
I didn't know it was an 18.
Me = 17 year old who really couldn't pass for someone a year older than she is.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again.
NOT AMUSED.

Seen it twice! Brilliant stuff! Definately going to get around to writing a review!

Absolutely uh-maze-ing. Loved every minute of it!

Stupid censorship in Thailand though, it's really ridiculous. They blurred almost all the blood. Not even decent blurs as well, they use those horrible square blurs that gives half the screen a few blocks of colour. And also, they blurred the bottle of gin once, but not the second shot of it. Rolling Eyes Pathetic.

You may start to think that they're really strict and conservative like here, but think again, see, I went with my fifteen year old sister and again with my mates and some of their younger siblings who were as young as twelve. They let the lot of us in! lmfao As long as the blood is hastily blocked out, because you know, it's not obvious that their dead, since all that red stuff is just ketchup!
I've got to tak my dad next, but he doesn't like blood, he'll be glad it's quite badly, but still at least censored.

Apart from that, it was amazing, truely a masterpiece. However, comparing Johnny Depp to the others who have gotten the Oscar nods, I do believe that some of the other actors maybe do deserve the award slightly more. (Daniel Day-Lewis certainly tried the hardest to truly be his role, and it has paid off again.)

Tim Burton reveals his amazing genius, yet again with another collaberation with Johnny Depp. Only this time, it didn't feel as much as a Tim Burton/Johnny Depp project because the whole cast was simply too good. Helena Bonham Carter definately stole the show quite a few times too.

But even the younger members of the cast, the majority of which were making their silver screen debuts, performed stunningly. I must admit that the actual singing wasn't up to the Broadway standard, but that didn't matter because everyone had the pitch perfect tone and character in their voice to not have to give a proper musical performance. Beautiful adaption of the musical, yet truly a movie in itself.

Sacha Baron Cohen deserves massive apprasil for his hilarious role. The entire movie, infact, had sublte amounts of black comedy, in true Burton style, he can make any serial killer slightly hyper-eccentric.

And Johnny Depp...he's never been sexier. Ever.

Watched the movie, and it was AWESOME.

I love the effects they had on it, you know, to make it seem like a darker movie.

You're allowed to see R movies here if an adult buys the tickets for you.

And I liked this movie Con
I think it was better than the play tbh
It was kind of hard to go wrong with all those amazing actors and Tim Burton, though

Love this show! All Tim Burton and Johnny Depp films are brilliant! This one, I love the effects Tim Burton had captured and Johnny Depp's voice and his acting... just brilliant. Helena Bonham Carter was as amazing as the two mentioned. I love the makeup and costumes in particular.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to see this movie. I didn't really hear a whole lot about it. But just from looking and reading the majority of the posts in this thread, I think I just might have to get it.
