Jeff from RealJock.com here. Most of you know by now that RealJock.com is an advertising-supported site. Without our (wonderful, gracious, lovely, etc.) advertisers we'd be in a not-so-good place financially.
This December we have a really great advertiser on RealJock.com - Paramount's new movie musical "Sweeney Todd," starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter (my favorite...remember "Howard's End"), and Sacha Baron Cohen. "Sweeney Todd," which opens December 21, is providing a lot of this month's support that keeps RealJock going and growing.
So... if you happen to be thinking about going to the movies this holiday season, please consider going to see "Sweeney Todd." Also, if you happen to know other RJ members in your area, we would be most appreciative if you planned a "Sweeney Todd" outing to show your support for our advertisers. I'll be going on opening night (Dec. 21) in SF, so if anyone in the Bay Area wants to join me let me know.
A bit more about the movie below... And if you don't want to go, that's fine too (no pressure!). If you do end up going, please update your review in this thread. Regardless, cheers and happy holidays!
MORE ABOUT "SWEENEY TODD"
In their latest visual masterpiece, Johnny Depp and Tim Burton join forces in a big-screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's award-winning musical thriller "Sweeney Todd." Depp stars in the title role as a man unjustly sent to prison who vows revenge - not only for cruel punishment by the judge, but for the devastating consequences of what happened to his wife and daughter. When he returns to reopen his barber shop, Sweeney Todd becomes the Demon Barber of Fleet Street - whose clients begin to disappear.
The cast also includes Helena Bonham Carter as the strange Mrs. Lovett - Sweeney's amorous accomplice, and Sacha Baron Cohen in the role of the flamboyant rival barber, and Alan Rickman (from the Harry Potter films) as the evil Judge who sends Sweeney to prison.
