Sweeney Todd...anyone seen it? (open spoilers, to be sure)

Not sure if there is another thread on this…I didn’t see one. If so, ignore this thread and just point me to the other one.

My wife talked me into going to see this movie last night. I wasn’t really interested in going to see it as I’d see the previews and was pretty much…meh.

But she wanted to go see it so we did. Ugh! A slasher musical. And a VERY gory one. I won’t go into details here, despite the open spoilers designation. Just wanted to know if anyone else has seen it and what your thoughts are if you have.

Myself…it was a total waste of an evening, and though movies usually don’t effect me that much I actually found I was completely disinterested in eating dinner afterward and still feel a bit queasy today when I think about it. My wife will be paying for weeks for dragging me to this thing.
