A pirate called Sparrow

I watched Pirates of the Caribbean today. And Johnny Depp makes for an awesome pirate. His mannerisms, his accent, along with his hair – all combines to make him eminently watchable. Do catch it, if you haven’t already.

I admire Depp for the variety of his roles. I’ve watched a few of his films – Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Donnie Brasco, The Brave – and what I like is the fact that he does very diverse roles and brings a lot of character into whatever he plays.


  1. First timer here….neat blog u have up here…

    anyways….i m a big time fan of Mr Depp too…

    have u seen him in “Blow”….he is simply BAAP actor…. πŸ™‚

  2. if u like Depp, u must watch Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas….though ppl have extreme feelings abt the movie…Depp is just great !

  3. Fantastic movie! Love the name: Black Pearl (one of the rare ones). First ever movie of JD that I’ve really watched.

  4. I am telling u Johnny Depp is getting an Oscar this year πŸ˜‰

    U MUST MUST watch Ed Wood. Absolutely marvel of a movie with Depp playing the title role like noone else could have.

  5. I really really want to watch that movie. I have read so many good reviews about it. I hope I get the chance to watch it πŸ˜€

  6. Hey anita,

    Glad to know that you had fun !!

    I have started blogging in earnest !! he he !! I am getting the hang of it. Still doing some research. Ankh is also helping me out with some good suggestions…

    hope you had a great weekend.

    Am planning to catch this movie in a few days ..

    have a nice day !!


    PS: check out my blog if you can … i am still rambling though !! he he !!

  7. Hey A! Besides ‘Blow’ I recommend an old b/w Depp film called ‘Dead Man’. Not as popular as the rest of his films but one of the best JD films I’ve seen!

  8. Vikram: Will keep Fear and Loathing in mind next time I got to rent a video πŸ™‚

    Anya: Ed Wood? Is that a new one?

    Jil: Good to know you have some help. Will send you some useful links one of these days!

    Nobody: Great! More movies to see :0)

  9. Johnny Depp? Diverse roles? Isn’t he always playing the same wacko roles ? Even Jim Carrey does more diverse roles than Johnny Depp. Wanna catch this Pirate thing, but I think its sailed away from Chennai.

  10. Jim Carrey more diverse than Johnny Depp? I wouldn’t agree to that one! Carrey looks the same and acts the same in every movie he does!

    I have the VCD at home. Great movie. Depp is really a great actor. I also liked him for his comments re: america, “America is dumb, it’s like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you, aggressive,” he said.

    “My daughter is four, my boy is one. I’d like them to see America as a toy, a broken toy. Investigate it a little, check it out, get this feeling and then get out,”
