How can you possibly neglect to include Fear and Loathing? List am disappoint.

Agreed. I can't take any list serious that doesn't include Fear and Loathing when talking about Depp's best roles. I think it's quite possibly his best performance to date.

And putting Dillinger above Jung? No way. His work in Blow has to go towards the top as well for me.

Megaton4106d ago

Agree on both points. I'd put Fear and Loathing at #1 and Blow in top 3. Even if this guy had put Fear and Loathing at 10, it would have been better than leaving it out entirely. It really is his best performance, IMO. He spent months living with Hunter to get all of his mannerisms right, and it totally came through.

Absolutely. Fear and Loathing must be in Top 5, no questions asked. Terry Gilliam helped forge a tremendous performance from Del Toro as well. Awesome movie!

And Johnny Depp is the Man. I admire that dude's talent so much.

Yea, he really gave himself to that role and became the role. Living with Hunter and learning his ways, picking up his mannerisms and everything.

He gave himself to this role so completely that it even sticks with him to this day a bit. You can tell in the Jack Sparrow role especially how he's taken that and it shines through still to this day.

I'm disappointed too. There's just too many to leave out. I agree with some of them in there but Fear and Loathing should have gone in and there's just so many more. I think there's only one or two movies he's done that I didn't care for that much.

I would have trouble making a top 10.

Does Depp even need a top ten list? Just say Johnny Depp and you will most likely find a good movie at the end of the tunnel lol

artsaber4106d ago

One of the few actors whose films I will usually give a look no matter what critics mat say.

Benny and Joon, The Nineth Gate, Nick of Time....all are totally different and soooo good.
