SWEENEY TODD Now Playing at Lamar with Meat Pies! Yum.

This weekend we've got a ton of great movies opening: JUNO at South Lamar will blow minds. Plus, we can't wait to see WALK HARD: THE DEWEY COX STORY and CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR at Village. But the food/movie pair-up of the season is SWEENEY TODD at South Lamar.

Johnny Depp plays a murdering barber who grinds up his victims and makes meat pies out of them! So of course we've got a phenomenal selection of meat pies for you to eat while enjoying the film.

Here's what John Bullington has pulled out of his giant chef hat for the occasion:

Hare Pie
Roasted rabbit with carrots, parsnips, potatoes and celery root in a rich baked into a rosemary crust 10.99

Shepherds Pie
Ground Thunderheart Bison with wild mushrooms topped with mashed yukon gold potatoes and Gloucester cheese. The Bison is all natural and grassfed, so tasty and so good for you! 9.99

Duck Pie
Confit of Duck with fennel, quince, leeks and turnips in a thyme cabernet sauce baked in a peppercorn crust 10.99

And for Dessert:

Blood Orange Pie 9.99
Chocolate Pecan Crust filled with a tangy blood orange filling and topped with honeyed mascarpone.

All savory pies served with fresh greens and white balsamic vinaigrette.

And here's what the critics are saying about SWEENEY TODD:

"Scary, monstrously funny and melodically thrilling. And Depp is simply stupendous." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"The performances are pitched at just the right scale: theatrically exaggerated but untainted by "Broadway" bombast. Who knew Burton would have such an uncanny feel for how to film a musical?" - David Ansen, Newsweek
