Since seeing Dark Shadows last week, I have now seen 20 Johnny Depp movies. That means I've seen enough movies to do a top 5, bottom 5 for just his movies. I have 1741 movies on my Flickchart so far.
1. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003, #39). One of my all-time favorite action movies, and Johnny Depp is definitely the best part of the whole thing.
2. Edward Scissorhands (1990, #51). A beautiful, haunting story that also has some great moments of unexpected humor.
3. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007, #79). A pretty great adaptation of one of Sondheim's best musicals.
4. Ed Wood (1994, #185). As you can tell, most of my 20 Johnny Depp movies are his collaborations with Tim Burton... and this one is great fun, especially as I'm already a fan of Plan 9 From Outer Space.
5. Finding Neverland (2004, #213). Freddie Highmore's least annoying role and a lovely story with a focus on theater, so of course I have to love it.
1. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007, #1397). I barely made it all the way through this movie. It's incredibly boring.
2. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006, #1309). This is probably ranked a bit too low, but the fact that I can hardly remember any of it tells you how much I thought of it.
3. Alice in Wonderland (2010, #1302). Why do all versions of Alice in Wonderland make it so terrifying? I mean, it's Tim Burton, so I shouldn't have been that surprised, but Alice should be more whimsical than creepy, and this is just creepy.
4. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005, #1285). ...Actually, same complaint. The original movie is whimsical. The book is creepy. This one is more like the book. And I don't like it.
5. Blow (2001, #1272). Nothing terribly wrong with this, it just... never caught my attention.
