I’m not personally into thinking about revenge but nothing represents revenge best than a revenge scene from a movie. As far as I can remember, this would be from the movie The Hand That Rocks the Cradle. I’m talking specifically about that concluding scene where Annabella Sciorra push out Rebecca De Mornay to her death and plunge out the attic window down to the white picket fence below. The classic movie is founded on Rebecca De Mornay’s character by pursuing revenge for her husband’s suicide, and the turmoil she felt which led to her miscarriage and eventual lose of her baby. De Mornay, faking and pose as a nanny then attempts to kill Sciorra and take her family as her own. Sciorra’s character fulfill her own sweet revenge after all. This is one classic revenge scene on a movie that I will never forget. The feeling of fulfillment knowing one has delivered revenge is astonishing.
I tell you, as I visit the official Sweeney Todd movie site I couldn’t believe Johnny Depp can actually sing. The movie is an adaptation of Stephen Soundheim’s award winning musical thriller. So of course, Johnny has proven that he cannot only act but he can also sing.
Johnny Depp stars in Sweeney Todd in the title role as a man that has been sent to prison unjustly . He then vows revenge for the unjust cruelty, maltreatment and punishment. Furthermore, his revenge is also brought upon by the devastating consequences his wife and daughter had to go through while he was in prison. Finally, when he returns, to re-open his barber shop he becomes the Demon Barber of Fleet Street and shaved the heads of gentlemen who were never thereafter heard from again. In this movie, revenge is the central theme and how Sweeney Todd did it is so sleek that the result of revenge is so sweet and fulfilling.
I can’t wait for this musical thriller to be out in the movies. Meantime, I am contented to browse through and visit Sweeney Todd on My Space for the trailer and downloads for banners, skins and wallpapers and of course, the trailer of Sweeney Todd. See you at the theaters, peeps!
