Johny Depp has slowly but surely become one of my personal favorite actors his performing seems to improve everytime and also he usually choose great characters to play, being a character actor, he frequently plays the most challenging and least conventional character types. Depp personifies the type of actor who slips into the skin of the character he is performing, it doesn’t matter the time period, or exactly how fantastical his overall performance may seem, you believe in him.
You most likely know his most well-known films, below we review and present only the best ones from him.

To clear up a misconception about the name to the movie – “From Hell” is really a quote from a letter that Jack The Ripper sent to the police force. It’s the one letter that a lot of professionals agree is actually from the Ripper. This is briefly shown in the movie as part of the proof. Johnny Depp is Inspector Fred Abberline, an opium addict exactly who frequently discovers the solution to his cases through dreams induced by ‘chasing the dragon’. Put simply, somewhat of a psychic drug addict.
The film is founded on an unusual theory about the Jack the Ripper murders. It’s very effective and well thought out. It’s very astmospheric, very seedy, providing an awesome backdrop for Depp’s skills. The cinematography is outstanding, and seems to be a true labor of love. I recommend seeing this, you will not be disappointed.

`What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’ is some of those rare achievements in movie theater where you learn something about yourself as you watch the credits part. This is a movie that, instead of concentrating all its efforts in developing a plot heavy script, creates an environment that absorbs the audience into the hearts of the main character types, forcing us to think about these people, their daily lives, their ordinary, and also compare their emotions to our own.
Johnny Depp as Gilbert is outstanding as the selfless giver, and also carer of his psychologically disabled brother, played with utter reality by Leonardo de Caprio. At the time, de Caprio was just a little child though received an Oscar nomination that launched this actor right into a prosperous career, which has proved he’s the best “stuff” to portray anybody, a natural actor. It’s a film I do not get tired of viewing. Depp and DiCaprio were outstanding.

This film is as touching as they come. It tells the story of J. M. Barrie, the writer of Peter Pan, and exactly how his inspiration for it happened. This movie takes the viewers back in its history, to a place they can barely remember, a Neverland.
Johnny Depp comes with an effortless Scottish accent that is definitely not easy to accomplish no matter exactly how simple he makes it seem. The 3 children were all outstanding and added to the standard of the entire product, not only do Johnny Depp as well as Freddie Highmore give fantastic activities, however the supoirting cast of Kate Winslet, Julie Christie, and also the other kids are just as wonderful. I laughed and then fell into tears all in a hr, so some thing must of been done perfect.

Based on a true story, it displays the eventual decline of Johnny Depps character to the sinister world of drug trafficking. The film starts with Depp’s character as a youthful lad being taught to complete the best thing by his loving, caring dad, who also teaches his little boy about the important points of life. Depp’s child character also fantasizes about getting rich, after viewing first-hand his parents financial problems. Later on in the film, Depp’s character, now a grownup, hooks up with an old close friend, and so they contrive on a get-rich-quick scheme.
I would recommend this film to a person with an open mind who would like to learn the intriguing true story of George Jung.

Ed Wood (Johnny Depp), is a optimistic movie enthusiast without strong abilities in story telling, yet pushed to tell the audience his story. Ed’s stories display little curiosity about perfection because they honestly display imperfections which eliminate the magically believable moment. Nevertheless, it’s these imperfections that Tim Burton illustrates in Ed Wood where he displays Ed’s skin problems and peculiarities to bring out the human side of Ed, which is what makes him adorable.
Johnny Depp is entertaining as Ed and truly plays the part extremely well. You almost feel sorry for him as he will get rejected from everybody because he has his intentions right no matter how skewed they become. Finally either way, it always brings tears to my eyes; sometimes they are tears of fun, sometimes they are ones of sympathy.

Charlie Bucket is a young child in a very poor family. His dad can hardly support family members by doing work in a toothpaste factory. Close to their house is a chocolate factory, run by a reclusive person called Willy Wonka. No one understands who currently works there, as no one is ever seen getting into or getting out of the constructing, but world renowned chocolate keeps coming out of it! When it’s publicised that Wonka has put gold tickets into 5 different candy bar wrappers, that could be found anywhere in the globe, and also the 5 recipients will get a visit of his factory, chaos starts. The story by itself isn’t actually an improvement over the original, rather its told from the slightly various viewpoint, giving more insight in to Willie Wonka’s persona, and also updating the other children Violet, Mike Teavee, and so on… to reflect a newer generation of children.
Johnny Depp, at the same time, “did” what he constantly does do a great job of playing a weird man. I get the feeling he relates easily to strange characters. He appears to play enough of them. Does the film appeal to the kid side in every individual? Absolutely. Does the movie appeal to the grownup side in every one? To some extent. Yes. An enjoyable film with a heart this is.

The story of John Dillinger, the famous bank robber and his team, trying to stay a step in front of the law. And Melvin Purvis the actual FBI agent attempting to stay ahead of him, hoping of catching him. But exactly how is this gonna play out, on this game of cat and mouse.
Johnny Depp carried out an excellent job as John Dillenger in Public Enemies, even though some historical facts was condensed down and altered slightly, it had been still a great film with mostly truth to it and also incredibly performed and executed. This movie is no great artwork, but it’s not hard to watch and has great acting in it.

Edward Scissorhands is quite simply the best story book ever told. This really is Tim Burton in his eccentric prime, and also his presence is palpable in most arena of this lovely and personal movie.
Johnny Depp performs Edward Scissorhands, an imperfect, timid and bizarre persona, who had been created in a large fortress by an inventor. Sadly, his inventor passes away before he was able to complete Edward. Edward looks like an ordinary person, except he’s ghostly pale skin and also big blades for his hands. He sounds monstrous, but he’s one of the most adorable creature you can possibly imagine. The behaving is great by everybody, especially Depp and Ryder. It’s very nice and touching. Tim Burton, like usually, brings excellent directing and visual scenery to the film.

This film is undoubtedly one of the best Mafia movies ever made. This really is one of the most underrated films ever made. I think that Goodfellas and also the Godfather trilogy set the bar so high for mafia films that Donnie Brasco never received full adulation it deserved. Depp turns in one excellent performance as FBI agent Joseph D. Pistone called Donnie Brasco. He gets accepted into a mafia family and also soon becomes “like them”. He’s great in the role, and also the viewer watches him become absorbed by the lifestyle of the mobsters with whom he associates.
Depp and Pacino deliver excellent performances, and also Anne Heche, in a supporting role as Joe’s increasingly frustrated spouse, shines in her best role. It is just probably the most unique, and magnificently crafted mafia films ever made, and also one of the best movies of 1997.

“Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” is absolutely nothing less than non-stop enjoyment from begin to end. The Story is innovative and unique, with many surprizes. The music score soars. Even the assisting roles are fascinating and well developed. No doubt you’ve already seen the movie so hopefully you know the plot already.
As numerous people have said, Johnny Depp is great playing Captain Jack Sparrow! He is the highlight of the film. And also steals every single scene he is in. Johnny Depp, especially, beautifully offers their own humor into this film. His wonderful behavior alone gives this movie the memorable comedy experience, he created a whole little world together with his character, with his pronunciation, and his wacky hand motions. Johnny Depp most likely deserved his Golden Globe nomination, not his Oscar nomination though.
A great movie that will stand the test of time, Pirates of the Caribbean never falls off before the wind.
