    MSN Must-See Movies: "Sweeney Todd" and "There Will Be Blood"

    MSN has announced its list of the upcoming holiday season's must-see movies, and both Sweeney Todd and There Will Be Blood are among the top ten. Soundtracks from both films will be available from Nonesuch this December.

    In recommending Sweeney, MSN has this to say "Combine Stephen Sondheim's Tony Award-winning musical of a revenge-seeking barber, Tim Burton's distinctive vision, the charisma of Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sacha Baron Cohen, and you're up for one hell of a bloody (literally) ride." And as for a standout performance, the site singles out Depp, who, the article reads, "is said to channel David Bowie in a rock-star interpretation of the demon barber role. Place your Golden Globes bets now, because he will definitely earn a nomination."

    There Will Be Blood, the latest from Paul Thomas Anderson, stars Daniel Day-Lewis as an early 20th-century oil tycoon. MSN praises Day-Lewis's co-star Paul Dano (best known as the dour, Nietzsche-loving brother in Little Miss Sunshine) and sees a Best Supporting Actor nod in his future. Another powerful player in the film is its score by guitarist/composer Jonny Greenwood.

"Combine Stephen Sondheim's Tony Award-winning musical of a revenge-seeking barber, Tim Burton's distinctive vision, the charisma of Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sacha Baron Cohen, and you're up for one hell of a bloody (literally) ride," says MSN of Sweeney.
