    Blow, The Pirates Trilogy and Sleepy Hollow were all the best imo.

    but i guess ill go with the pirates trilogy.

    Dead Man -- Jim Jarmusch western where Johnny plays an Eastern accountant who inadvertently becomes an outlaw. The rub is that he's shot early in the movie and the bullet is too close to his heart to operate. It will eventually kill him.

    Some people think it has a slow pace. I think it's perfect for the subject matter. Great score by Neil Young.

    Any of the ones he has done with Tim Burton I love them both.

    Johnny Depp is a very talented actor. I have never seen him play a part that he didn't nail. I can't vote for just one.

    Donny Brasco was a good flick too.

    Cry-Baby, rofl. The only thing worse than that movie was that I saw it.

    You know come to think of it I voted other. The movie that I would vote for is Ed Wood.

    I cried the first time I saw "Edward Scissorhands". I felt so bad for him at the end.

    His performance in "Sweeney Todd" gave me chills. If that hack Daniel-Day Lewis had not been nominated, he would have won a well deserved Oscar.

    Although, he deserved an Oscar for "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" & "Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl" (but alas, Sean Penn stole that one).


    Also, "Ed Wood" is just a great movie that doesn't get much love.

    Now i know its not so popular but i really like Depp in Sleepy Hollow - its a dark, sinister film which is made funny by his characters weird fears and habbits.

    Sweeney Todd was my favorite, although Ninth Gate was excellent as well.

    I can't say that any stand out above the rest. He brings something unique and different to every role he takes. I like them all equally.

    But if someone put a gun to my head, I would have to say Blow.

    I would have picked "Donnie Brasco" because Al Pacino + Johnny Depp = win

    Although they overused the phrase "Fugetaboutit"

    But I picked Pirates just because I love his portrayal of the character
    The first movie was awesome the second and thrid sucked

    I really liked Fear and Loathing but in the end, I had to vote Other for Ninth Gate, that movie was rad.

    I have to say that I think that Jonhnny Deep is one the greatest actors of our generation, I mean there is practically no role that he cannot play.

    I have several picks for best JD movie but, I will go with Pirates, I just love that character (Jack Sparrow).

    "Pirates Of The Caribbean" series and "Chocolat". (If I remember right, I read somewhere that he bases some of his character roles off of "real life" people. Capt. Jack Sparrow was his impersonation of Keith Richards and his character in "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was based on someone else??)

    I can vouch for the Keith Richards part, that's why Richards apperead as Jack's dad in "At worlds end"

    I think this thread is missing "The Libertine".

    Weird a** movie, but his performance is good. Johnny as a playboy = believable.


    Also, if I remember rightly, Jonny has a small part in "Platoon". :)
