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.


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

2Edward Scissorhands
A dark and heartwarming story.
It will stay with you forever...
A Wonderfully presented love story. Awesome movie... Just no words to describe this movie! <3 Depp
This is the story that made me believe in love...


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
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.

4Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
I love the body language of johnny depp
Exciting, funny, and overall a great movie. Johnny Depp doesn't get better than this

8What'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.
