Greatest Johnny Depp Movies

America's greatest actor (or at least in my opinion) has been in so many great films, it's hard to tell which is best. What do you think?

The Top TenXW

1Pirates 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 - ninjacobra

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. - UnheardMelody

Love it so much so. really, I love the captain Jack and he's just so cute and awe ^^... love you Johnny Depp

The darkest of all and coolest. There making a new one.

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. - elijahpierson

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

Johnny Depp was amazing as Sweeney Todd. I was a fan fan of the stage show before the movie came out, so I didn't think I would like it, but his performance blew me away.

10What'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.

Match in the gas tank boom boom oh my God vryy dramatic emotional & funny.. I have seen this pic at least ten time and I never bored to watch this & this is my first pic in the end scene I cried too much.. Johnny Depp {a great actOR}
