Movies seen for the first time with Johnny Depp:
What's Eating Gilbert Grape? - Definitely the best movie I saw this week, and I'm not sure how I skipped it for Leonardo DiCaprio week last year, but what a performance he gives as the retarded younger brother of Depp and his two sisters. Depp's performance as a young man in a town going nowhere fast is pretty impressive without being melodramatic or overly done. I really really want to see this again.
Secret Window - This is the more grown-up able to be CRAZY Depp. I loved this mostly because I totally didn't see the big twist coming. It's creepy, but not particularly scary though it's based on a Stephen King novel. If you haven't seen it, it's definitely worth the time.
Cry-Baby - Unless you're a HUGE John Waters' fan, this is painfully awful and completely unnecessary. I really disliked it.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - I'm pretty sure I just didn't GET this movie. Christophe Meloni as the hotel clerk was hysterical though. Beautifully made, but so strange it's hard to process.
