Aargh!



I saw that pirate movie Tuesday night, something I'd thought to avoid, but rather enjoyed watching Johnny Depp flip-flop about. He really is hilarious, though they could have cut out all the rest of the scenes, so far as I was concerned. Or they might simply have written him into each. That would have been alright with me and my bladder which, after two hours, was hardly content to abide the next twenty-five.

I think if I were Keira Knightley, I would have intentionally botched the big kiss scene over and over again, so that many many more takes would be required. Johnny Depp with kohl blackened eyes, a drunk gay affectation, gold teeth and dirty fingernails, is still Johnny Depp. Maybe even more alluring to get the shades of goofball when he's usually so unswervingly cool. As my previous (and straight, btw) roommate David once wrote, "He is the sexiest fucker alive; there is no female equivalent. He makes my gay nerve twitch."

I agree that Johnny Depp is HOT but more than that, he is one of the most talented actors of our time. I have seen Johnny Depp in some bad movies but I have NEVER seen him give a bad performance.

and that's a big part of what makes him so hot.

Oh please, every character he plays is virtually the same, psuedo-gothic waif just itchin for the chance to prance, or perhaps mince.
Not impressed.

Ha! Funny, though it sounds like a little bunch of sour grapes to me. I can kind of see what you mean, but cannot agree over the span of his entire body of work. Actually, I'd say he's quite diverse, though he often chooses characters that fit your description.

Aside: My dog is wagging his tail in his sleep right now.
