OK, so there are some serious Deppites out there........
Yellowrose got almost all of them right....in fact she only missed one...
1. Nightmare on Elm Street (yep, shortly before his character was eaten by a bed!)
2. Pirates of the Carribbean (PotC ONE, I believe :-) )
3. Cry Baby (a classic cult movie, highlighting the angst of teenhood with music. A fantastic film!)
4. Edward Scissorhands (Tim Burton, need we say more - beautiful, just beautiful)
5. Benny & Joon (Swoon - Sam. Rumour has it they paid Big Bucks to be able to use the Keaton trademarks)
6. What's Eating Gilbert Grape (Not high on my list, I prefer the book - but a nice film)
7. Nick of Time (Depp - looking ordinary?? Yep, Joe Schmo caught up in high intrigue and a race against time to rescue his daughter)
8. Ed Wood (unbelievable film. 'Pink angora sweater? Stilletos? I know, we'll get Johnny to do it!' - apparently, he loved the pink angora sweater!)
9. The Brave (A unique film in this list (see below). Strong, disturbing yet touching and endearing)
10. The Astronaut's Wife (Another of my favourites. Johnny plays an astronaut with a few pschyological problems)
11. From Hell (Inspector Abbeline calling. Using chunks of Ripper material, a fair hash at the topic)
12. Secret Window (OMIGOD - this film blew me away. Moody, dark and very, very strange - hmm, sounds like perfect Depp fodder to me!)
13. The Libertine ([wails] not seen this yet, but it's on my birthday list - especially as I bought it for Aginoth!)
14. Charlie & The Chocolate Factory (Finally, the Wilder Wonka has been laid to rest with this excellent new characterisation by - Tim Burton!)
The last photo?
'Twas our Johnny and Jimmy Intvelt (WHO?? I hear you all cry) Well, James Invelt is the voice behind Johnny in Crybaby. I could never work out why they didn't use Johnny's voice, but apparently John Walters thought it 'not right' for the piece, so James dubbed in.
And an extra bonus question - because you Deppites are all TOO clever for your own good......
The Brave is one of my all-time favourite Depp films. It is harsh, yet romantic. It is brutal, yet gentle. It is reality in the raw. And it was a personal voyage of discovery for Johnny.
So - what one thing singles out 'The Brave' from all the other Johnny Depp films over the last 22 years.......??
ps don't panic. Not only are you going to get a rest from Johnny over the next week, you're going to get a rest from me altogether. I'm going to visit my mum, and there is no internet.
