Saying farewell to his teen idol image, Johnny took on his first role under Tim Burton's direction as Edward, a Frankenstein-esque young man who has scissors for hands. He never quite fit into society with his stringy hair, gothic attire, and scarred face, let alone the scissor hands, but Depp's portrayal of the well-meaning misfit made this melancholy fairytale a Burton classic, and began a special collaboration.
Johnny Depp makes this film!
More of a complaint. You left out Inspector Aberline in "From Hell." It's a more subtle role than some of his others, but it's one of my favorites. His portrayal of Aberline may have no acquaintance with history, but how many people watch Ripper films for historical accuracy? Depp's inspector is a good man, but a vulnerable one. And that's where Depp shines. It would have been so easy to concentrate on this character's weaknesses, rather than showing him turn those weaknesses to fragile strength. I've liked Depp since 21 Jump Street, and this performance is one of the reasons why.
yes he is a very good actor funny kind and generous whe he is out with his friends and very good when he takes out his friends and leaves a unbelievable tip for hi waiter or waitress as read in the news so that makes hi a very special person to be kind and generous to others the lone ranger will be a hit with me I love westerns they are my favorites. good luck mr depp I saw you on some talk shows recently .you are very special person.

All the movies listed are AWESOME!!!!! Of course, there are always going to be ones that get missed on a list like this... Johnny Depp is one of the great actors, despite what other people say or believe...if you like him as an actor, great! If not, don't comment on a website about his movies. We love Johnny Depp no matter what movie he does!!
Benny and Joon!!
Don Juan del Marco!!!
I challenge people to make a list of movies that had johnny depp in them that were bad., I bet the list goes on forever :/......
The Ninth Gate? He wasn't "bad" in it, but it wasn't one of his best.
Johnny Depp is by far one of the greatest actors of our generation and will continue to be probably forever. In fact, I think it would be safe to say that he is the greatest actor of this generation. There is not a role this man can not play. And to top it off, he seems like a great normal person too. I think every movie he has been in has been absolutely amazing. The best part of 21 jump street was his 3 minutes cameo. COME ON!
He was in the new Jump Street? That might almost be enough to make me rent it.
Johnny Depp is one of my favorite actors (along with Robert Downey Jr.). I have to say, my favorite roles of his have to be 1) Jack Sparrow, 2) Sweeney Todd, 3) Mort Rainey (Secret Window), 4) Spencer Armacost (Astronaut's Wife) and 5) Inspector Abberline (From Hell). Definitely looking forward to seeing Dark Shadows ..... and will be very interested to see him as Tonto!
The movie "Secret Window" (my favorite, also Sleepy Hollow and Gilbert Grape, etc.,.) is missing but none the less the selection of JOHNNY DEPP Movies are totally gripping and embrancing major 'ventures. A very talented Actor through n through Johnny DEPP and looking forward to seeing him in the new DARK SHADOWS Movie from Director Tim BURTON. The much beloved Classic DARK SHADOWS (TV Haunt/Myster Chill Series Soap) is a Masterpiece Classic...'can't wait to see it's storie(s) revisited again, this time in DEPP/BURTON Style.
How could you leave off BLOW!? One of his best... However, i do agree with Public Enemies, Donnie Brasco, Pirates of the Carribean, and Edward Scissor Hands as some the BEST!
You forgot Chocolat! Holy smokes.
How can you not name Nightmare on Elm Street. I mean really!!!!!
FYI its J.M. Barrie
He is truly the best actor of our time. No one can do more parts and be so into it then Johnny Depp. He really has a way with making everyone love his movies. Meaning..... he can really make everyone fall in love with the roles he has in all of his outstanding movies.
He is a great actor......the pirate movies and public enemies are my favorites by far but he does a great job in every acting role
I mean I love him so much ~~
I think Johnny Depp is the greatest character actor of our time!
I LOVE JOHNY DEPP! But my favorite is Edward. I grew up with him! most def!!
I love Johnny! He is so unique!
Johnny Depp is my kind of a Guy Great Movie too!
