"Hold me." "I can't."

I recently convinced my husband to watch Edward Scissorhands with me. He was hesitant...I'm not sure if it was because of Johnny Depp or the "unrealistic" premise. Either way, I am pretty sure he didn't hate it. Alan Arkin saved the day again!

Cry-Baby ftw! I'm in love with the song "Sh-Boom!" so of course it's my favorite. :D

Ooh, so many of those films are among my all-time favorites...it was ACTUAL AGONY to choose between PotC and Finding Neverland, though, and ultimately I resorted to a coin toss for the latter.

I really don't like Johnny Depp very much. He plays the same character in every movie. He's one of those people that is so famous that all I can see is the one trick pony actor/celebrity and never the character he's playing.

On a related note, I also can't stand how often Tim Burton makes the same movie over and over again with the same cast, composer, tone, sets and everything. That said, Sleepy Hollow is campy and fun and I also enjoyed Edward Scissorhands and Sweeney Todd, but other than that Depp has not impressed me.

I'm gonna have to agree with you here.

Sweeney Todd is my absolute favorite musical, and although I really like the rawness Burton gave to the operetta, Finding Neverland knocks its socks off in terms of film making.

Ditto to this entire comment. SWEENEY TODD!!! I did think they made it a little too gory, though. Ironically.

Edward Scissorhands is my all time favorite movie♥

My favorite Johnny Depp movie isn't really a Johnny Depp movie, although I think his presence makes it great. It's Chocolat and if you haven't seen it, go rent it or add it to your NetFlix queue ASAP.

I totally meant to put that one on this list. I love that movie! Yes!!
29th-Nov-2009 09:22 pm (UTC)
I can't choose! D: I loved all of the movies I've seen him in, and there are a number I have yet to see.
29th-Nov-2009 10:51 pm (UTC) - Why no ticky box?!?!
Let me choose them all!

Said like a true Johnny Depp fan. :)

My fave Depp film used to be Benny and Joon followed closely by Edward Scissorhands, but now it's one you didn't mention:

CHOCOLAT

:)

I thought I had put it on the list. Oopsy! :D

When Edward Scissorhands came out I was younger and thought it was absolutely amazing. Now that I'm older, when I see it again I see some cheesy parts. But there are still lots of things I love about it.

I voted for Benny & Joon but when I think of it I haven't seen that movie in ages. I might be remembering it through my teenager lens also.

Oops! I misread the first question. I meant to say 9.
