Gia Carides vs. Helena Bonham Carter

Like I said in my two previous posts, I watched Sweeney Todd and My Big Fat Greek Wedding last week. I realized then that Helena Bonham Carter and Gia Carides kinda look similar as their respective characters. When I looked up pictures for them as Mrs. Lovett and cousin Nikki, the thing that did it for me was the crazy curly hair and the expressions that they had on their faces. Anyway, that’s just my opinion and you can judge for yourself.

Gia Carides and Helena Bonham Carter


I was Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the other day and that made me think. I noticed that quite a bit of the movie musicals from nowadays are usually seen in the past. Take Sweeney Todd for example. It was set during the 1800s. Hairspray is the same way. It was set during the early 1960s. There’s also Chicago, Moulin Rouge!, The Phantom of the Opera, etc. I think that’s part of the reason as to why they’re appealing. I don’t know why, but that’s just what I think.
