It’s hard to believe, but Johnny Depp has turned 50! Yes, it’s true. He was born on 9th June 1963 in Owensboro, Kentucky. Here, you will find a short list of the best movies he has participated in during his entire career. Some of them you have watched for sure. But there are some pretty old and beautiful movies which I doubt you have ever heard about. Let’s start with one of them:
Number 5: Arizona Dream (1992)
Well, to tell you the truth this movie is not for everyone. It’s different and unique. I myself had to play it two or three times to watch it from the beginning to the end. However, when I finally did it, I understood the whole idea. This film is beautiful and if you are looking for something new and intriguing, this one is perfect for you!
Number 4: From Hell (2001)
Have you heard about Jack “The Ripper”? In this movie Johnny Depp is about to catch him and put him in the jail. It’s not going to be this easy as it sounds because “The Ripper” turns out to be a very famous and honoured man in Victorian era London. I have to warn you! This one is not for the faint of heart. There is a lot of blood and killings before “The Reaper” is captured. If you don’t mind this fact, I guarantee you will like it!
Number 3: Pirates of The Caribbean (All of Them)
When speaking of Depp’s best movies, we can’t go on without The Pirates. I guess, there is no need to tell you its storyline since we have all had seen at least one of it (there are four for the moment). Captain Jack Sparrow is not the deepest character Johnny Depp has played, but the whole movie is full of funny, dynamic and unexpected scenes. This is the reason for it to be on the third place in my short list. My personal favourite movie from the fourth is “The Curse of The Black Pearl”.
Number 2: What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)
Wow! This movie is touching! If you haven’t watched it yet, you have to! It’s one of the best movies with Leonardo DiCaprio, too. He is playing Arnie Grape – a retarded boy. Depp’s character is Gilber Grape – Arnie’s big brother who has to protect him and take care for the whole family since their mother is extremely fat and can’t leave the house. I cried a lot the first time I watched it. This is one of the movies you are going to remember forever.
Number 1: Edward Scissorhands (1990)
This film made Johnny Depp a star. It was his first role in a serious movie. Before it, he was participating mainly in teen-oriented ones. Another important thing happened after it. The course of Depp’s career changed dramatically. Characters like Edward Scissorhands have become his trademark. The film is about the impossible love between Edward (who has scissors instead of hands) and the prettiest girl in town – Kim. Actually, it’s more than that. It will show you the feelings of people neglected by society. Their pain. Their emotions. Their anger! A masterpiece!
