Black Mass

September 25, 2015


Black Mass – James “Whitey” Bulger as played by Johnny Depp is one nasty piece of work. He started out as a vicious small time mobster who loves his family. After his young son dies, any decency he may have had goes to hell. FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton), who grew up with Bulger […]

Mortdecai – Oh, dear, this is positively dreadful. Johnny Depp’s character of Lord Charlie Mortdecai is absolutely ridiculous. He uses this phony “uppah clahss” accent that comes off as just silly. Jock (Paul Bettany) is his manservant who’s willing to take a bullet for him. He mainly appears pained and constipated. Gwyneth Paltrow looks lovely […]

Dark Shadows

May 16, 2012


Dark Shadows – I’ve never been a big fan of Tim Burton and vampires are way down on my list of faves, so why did I go see this movie?  Oh, yeah, Johnny Depp.  Well, even the talented Mr. Depp cannot save this silly, tedious story.   Back in the 1700’s, the very wealthy Barnabas Collins […]

The ultra-sexy Penelope Cruz, several months pregnant in case you didn’t know, charmingly teases him so that he’s […]

Rango (Johnny Depp) is this lizard living in the desert and working on his acting skills when he meets an armadillo who urges him to go on a quest to get to the other side, metaphorically speaking. He ends up in a town called Dirt with a water shortage. After tossing back a few shots […]

The Tourist

December 13, 2010


It appears that Angelina Jolie (Elise Ward) is going to make a man out of Johnny Depp (Frank Tupelo) by changing him from a meek, mild-mannered math teacher into the kind of guy she wants, but he may have some surprises in store for her. They meet on a train, thanks to Alexander Pierce, who […]
