Greatest Johnny Depp Movies

The Top Ten

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
1. Pirates of the Caribbean
2. Edward Scissorhands
3. Sweeney Todd
4. Sleepy Hollow
5. Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas


Johnny Depp NAILED Captain Jack Sparrow's character! Perfect make up, drunk attitude, wobbly walking, gun handling, sword fighting. Pour the self made eunuch jokes for Will Turner (Depp made them himself) in the mix and you get one of the best character of the century.


No words for jacky
amazing acting done by johny and by script wirtter

3Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Jack Sparrow is my favorite Johnny Depp character, but Sweeney Todd is my favorite Johnny Depp movie. Great direction and performances, splendid art direction, and it's the only musical that I have loved in a while.


I thought the movie would be a disappointment so I should rather don't waste my time watching it.. But when I watched, it turns out to be the best depp's performance ever. Have never seen a movie like this
I LOVE this movie the best one in my opinion the music s to die for and depp is amazing as the main role 'Sweeney Todd'
