A promise is a promise

October 22, 2007 § 3 Comments

I said I’d blog about Johnny Depp… and I will, but I can’t promise that you’ll like it or that it’ll tap into some greater meaning in life. I guess I’m stumbling onto a disclaimer. Don’t get your hopes up that I’ll have much to say at all. I don’t know Depp personally and can’t say anything about his character. šŸ˜‰

I was watching What’s eating Gilbert Grape the other night and realized that I had a different memory of the movie. I thought, somehow, that Johnny Depp was wonderful in his role as Gilbert. Now, I don’t know if he was told by the director to play the character the same in the beginning as in the end and have no character arc… and to rely on the heavy hand of the lighting designer… But he was cute! How can you pass up Johnny when he’s got that long hair and that cool “I don’t care about how I look” attitude. But he was so awful in the movie! How did I forget that?

Now, I remember Depp back when he was doing 21 Jump Street and Nightmare on Elm Street and Edward Scissorhands. Those were some roles. Those were the days.
