    Not a fan, but the 1st Pirates movie was alright...

    The whole audience was just cracking up... like people who didn't even seem to know who he is.

    I knew who he is.

    Get this: I've never seen Edward Scissorhands... but I did see a movie (part of it) where he is supposed to be a British dude and tries the accent.

    The accent is ok, but he doesn't look Anglo-Saxon.

    Agreed. He gave his best performance as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

    Everything he’s been in. Even as he was sinking into the bed and all his blood came splashing out all over the ceiling dripping all over the floor in A Nightmare On Elm Street

    I think the secret window. He plays a writer who has a physiological order. A man harass him and kills people but in the end it was depp but he was in a physiological state that he thought it was someone else. Fantastic film
