12 Sweeney Todd icons

01. 02. 03. 04. 05.
06. 07. 08. 09. 10.
11. 12.

4 Sweeney Todd banners

#2: That’s either when they’re singing “Pretty Women” or when he actually kills him. After I made it, the more I thought it was the latter, therefore I should’ve given it some “The years, no doubt, have changed me” quote. Well, either way, it does look like they’re singing “Pretty Women,” so there you have it. Also--the stage production I heard of Sweeney Todd had them sing "desire," although I later learned they usually say "require." So, sorry about that.

4 Once Upon a Time in Mexico banners

2 Sweeney Todd colorbars

2 Sweeney Todd Wallpapers

Sweeney Todd and Anthony Hope



Sweeney Todd and Judge Turpin



*Comments: Those two pictures were so full of hot they couldn't be contained in mere icons and banners, so I put my hand at some simple wallpapers again. I'm currently using #1 on my compy.

Awesome awesome awesome! I took icon #1 because it's just too perfect! And as soon as I decide which pair of hotties I want to look at all day when I'm not busy working, I'll be using one of your wallpapers on my work PC.

Thanks for making me giggle!

I considered using a more aggressive picture for a good Sweeney BP, but that one seemed to scream it. It's the smirk.

I couldn't decide, either. I keep switching--right now it's still Anthony and Sweeney, but I guarantee I'll switch in a few again. :)

You're welcome! Always glad to make people laugh.

I'm glad I decided to make both, then--I couldn't decide between "if looks could kill" or "bitch, please!" Thankee!

Yes! A Sweeney 'bitch please' icon! :Snags:

I'm glad you stuck with the text on the #2 banner. You've got me itching to get the soundtrack, but I can resist. I can. I can. I've got Nano to keep me busy.

I love the faded photo texture on all the Sands banners, but that first one? For some reason, it's just so fascinating. :Snags again:

And the color bars--I love how your mind works.

I can hardly resist the soundtrack myself--and don't think NaNo can save you, because when it's released, NaNo is over! I want the soundtrack, but I don't. I want to be surprised...but I don't want to be UNpleasantly surprised. I mean, I've been listening to the original cast soundtrack for days now, and it's SO DAMNED GOOD. I've been repeating "Epiphany" over and over again, in particular the section we've heard Depp sing already--JD is much more energetic and crazy-sounding, which I like, but I still haven't heard enough of his voice to decide if I like the rougher, angrier singing or the smoother, despairing singing. *throws up her hands*

You know, I teel deer on you a lot. Why do you put up with me? ;P

I couldn't figure out ANY text to put on that first one, so I left it blank--glad to know it somehow works. Thanks for the compliments and I hope you like what you take. :)

Why do you put up with me?
Because you make pretty pictures of my favorite men? Because we share the same warped personality? You ramble so well? Hmmmm--all of the above!

Yes, you totally nailed it about comparing the original cast soundtrack with this one. Even if Johnny could sing opera, I don't think it would work with Burton's vision of the movie.

So it won't be a 'traditional' version, but anyone who knows Tim or Johnny should not be expecting traditional. I think I'm almost as eager to see the reviews as I am to see the movie. I want to know how many of the critic actually get what Tim's trying to do.

I can live with all that. :)

The original stage production of ST is ALMOST an opera, and that really doesn't translate well into a movie, i.e., Phantom of the Opera (at least IMO). And every interpretation of Sweeney is different, just like every Mrs. Lovett is different. From what I can tell, HBC is playing her as cunning, plotting, and much quieter, which makes her all the more evil. And as for JD, he seems to be playing a Sweeney who is dead inside, yes, but is INCREDIBLY filled with rage, anger, hate, and all that good stuff. I mean, the only time we see him relatively relaxed in the whole trailer is when he's got his "friends." Everywhere else, he's screaming and slashing and snarling and running around like the nut he is. Which I do indeed like, as the one I saw was much more subdued (but still very effective, and MAN, that guy could SIIIIIIIING).

I think so long as the ending stays the same, I'll be happy. TB has a habit of changing the ending sometimes, and while it's worked most of the time, I will indeed be pissed if he alters it. There is no other way for ST to end but the way Sondheim wrote it, so he'd just better leave it the depressing, miserable, no m'f'ing happy endings for our heroes, goddammit close curtains. :)

Do I spoil you too much for this movie? I hope not. If I am, feel free to hit me.

All are so very awesome!
My goodness, your colourbars are always my faves- so original. Not to mention lovely.

I need this movie to come now.

I was wondering, you seem familiar with the Stage versions- which Sweeney or Lovett dyou like most? and which 'team' of the two do you like most?
Just a teeny bit curious.

{la_petite_singe} First I would like to ask you if it is ok if I save your icon with Johnny Depp and Tim Burton? That is an adorable icon. Second, to the author of this site, I have snatched quite a few icons and the one pic of Johnny Depp with Allan Rickman since I haven't found one decent pic of Alan's part in that movie on the net. I will give credit. Thanx for the icons. They are some of the best I have seen so far.
