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.

2Sweeney 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.

Please tell me what the Nightmare before Christmas is doing on this list...

9What's Eating Gilbert Grape?
This is the kind of movie that changes your live. It makes you want to change something (if there is something to change) it's the kind of movie that makes you stare at the screen for minutes even after the film ended. I loved it. It's great acting from both Johnny and Leonardo and the story is unforgettable!
Match in the gas tank. BOOM, BOOM. Gilbert, it's a Burger Barn. IT'S BURGER BARN! Say thank you Gilbert, thank you. You can't find me AH.
