5. Pirates of the Caribbean Franchise
Lets not do each individually here just because its one character and its a great one at that. He changed the way everyone looks at pirates and I’m sure you have taken a laugh or two at his expense. He has the ability to do whatever he wants and lets face it we love his creativity and that’s why its made BILLIONS of dollars and Made him the highest paid actor of all time.
4. Sweeny Todd
It may not have been his first musical (CRY BABY) but it was by far one of the best of all time. Generating the most buzz from critics and becoming one of the most watched movies of the year Sweeny Todd changed the way everyone looked at haricuts. He did a great job creating a unique character that led to one of the best gore movies of all time.
A unique look at a true story Johnny actually made you like the character. It showed the life of a drug dealer and resulted into one of his best acclaimed films. His unique ability to make you feel bad for the bad guy has left us in awe at his talents and who doesn’t love a good drug story?
2. Ed Wood
Perhaps the least known on this list Ed Wood in a masterpiece of creativity. Its the best black and white movie of modern time and allows everyone to realize that acting is what brings movies to life not color. He was able to where a dress and still grab our attention in a serious way. If you have not seen this its highly recommended.
1. Whats Eating Gilbert Grape/Benny and Joon
Two movies at the top spot? YES!!! Its hard to find a bad Depp movie but picking his best? Impossible! I mean we left off Once upon a time in Mexico, Edward Scissor Hands, and Donnie Brasco and that’s just the beginning. These two movies show what talent can do. They allow you to watch and feel every breath of the movie as if it where real life. If you have not seen both of these then you are missing out on some of the greatest work in Hollywood History!
