Johnny Depp: Best Movie Roles
1. Edward Scissorhands (1990)The Role: Edward ScissorhandsWhy It’s The Best: Some actors get lost under piles of prosthetic make-up. Not Depp, who skilfully adapts to the bulky, cumbersome outfit and uses it to build upon his character. It’s a winning, fragile, subtle performance.Iconic Moment: As Ed carves an ice sculpture of an angel, his shavings make it snow in the back yard. Caught in the moment, Kim (Winona Ryder) dances in the floating flecks.Johnny Says: “I can remember when I finished Edward Scissorhands, looking in a mirror as the girl was doing my makeup for the last time, putting on the appliances and the prosthetics - this was like the 90th day or the 89th day of shooting."And looking and going, ‘Wow.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides review
Clearly damned to roam the seas churning out pirate films for all eternity – or until his contract runs out, whichever comes sooner – Johnny Depp inevitably returns as fancy-dress comedy buccaneer Jack Sparrow for Disney’s fourth instalment of Mild Piratical Peril. Because as long as the doubloons keep rolling in, the tested money-spinning formula will continue to be applied…This year’s result, as sure as eggs is eggs, being another wacky race against time to retrieve some sort of thing everyone wants, framing another collection of vaguely diverting action sequences, frantic chases, showcase locations and lots of boring exposition.This year’s Plot Propelling Object isn’t a magic compass, or a medallion, or a deck of 1977 Spider-man Top Trumps but a map to the legendary Fountain of Youth.
