wow, what an idiot. depp is easily one of the best actors still consistently acting today.

Wow. You've changed my mind then.

Despite this pithy, scathing comeback I will carry on not having a clue what all the big deal is about Depp.

Note: he is not totally shit or without acting merit; plus I have seen worse actors who have been put in higher regard. But then again, taste is taste, and this poor little Brit must just have a peculiar taste for actors, since I don't seem to be getting any love in my anti-Depp crusade.

Whatever, you all know and are sick of my opinion by now.

Dude you called Casey Affleck and Jackie Earle Haley better than Depp, your opinion is like Igor talking about music.

I haven't been here long enough to get the reference, but I get the gist.

Yeah that comment didn't win me much love, although it may have been misinterpreted. My point was that Casey Affleck is UNDERexposed as relative to the absolutely brilliant acting work that he's done in several films. On the other hand, I don't feel that Johnny Depp has, in my eyes, portrayed any truly brilliant characters particularly well or with magnificent subtlety, he seems to just apply a broad stroke of quirkyness to his roles when required.

We're pretending that actors quotas aren't based on what their movies expect to gross rather then their talents?

He's getting paid a shitton for POTC4 because it's going to make at least like $500 million and they're saving $10-20 million by getting rid of Bloom/Knightley.

Cool thread guys.

i get your post but still, just off of what he actually gets from the studio, he makes more than probably any actor on the planet.

Johnny Depp: "Those Pirates movies are artistically stifling and unchallenging."

Movie Studio: "We'll give you $30M."

Depp: "ARRRRRRRRR"

lol

Also, holy shit somebody's making more money than Ryan Seacrest.

Dare I say that Wintermute is mostly right here? You can't justify Depp being a fantastic actor by saying that the POTC films are enjoyable to watch because they aren't.

We're pretending that actors quotas aren't based on what their movies expect to gross rather then their talents?

He's getting paid a shitton for POTC4 because it's going to make at least like $500 million and they're saving $10-20 million by getting rid of Bloom/Knightley.

Cool thread guys.

When was that ever said or even implied?

You've got balls lol, I dared to speak out against Depp and look what's happening to me; getting jumped on by a bunch of Depp fangirls. Although I am glad to see the few posts appreciating the work of Casey Affleck and the sheer fucking brilliance that is Gone Baby Gone.

Full discloser: Haven't seen GBG. Will watch it.

But you're getting really defensive without actually bringing cohesive points to the table

WHY do I have to?! I gave my opinion on him, and I have tried to reinforce that by saying that I have, indeed, seen those films, and that I have not been very impressed. What technical reasons can I give if, personally, I don't like the way he acts?

And as for the tidbit about me not making my points cohesive, what the fuck is incohesive about them? If you can't understand the simple fact that I don't like Johnny Depp, then that's your fault. You seem to have trouble grasping it, stop raging plz k thanx

here's the thing, you're equivocating Dislike to Lack of Ability. That's pretty daft, dude.

I hate Led Zeppelin. I don't go around saying "LZ are a pretty bad band" Okay I do but i know its wrong anyway

Instead you prattle on about how he hasn't performed well without having examples/evidence/actual credibility other than attacking him for 'killing' a character that he played exact;y as originally written
