"America is dumb, it's like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you, aggressive."
--Johnny Depp, in Berlin, Germany, 2003
Please spread the word!
He doesn't need my money for Willy Wonka, because NO ONE can top Gene Wilder, but he'll get some for the sequel to Pirates of the Caribbean.
Also from the trailers doesn't Depp look like Michael Jackson in the movie?
Wonka was a very dark book. Dahl was a good writer, but somewhat dark by today's standards.
Why does everyone like him in the Pirates of the C? He played it like a flaming homosexual....
Everytime I saw him flounce I was distracted from the film story.
Who in the hell is Johnny Depp?
Does anyone know if here in in character here, or is this his normal look?
You will live in happiness too,
Like the Oompa Loompas doompity do!
Wouldn't touch this with a barge pole. Anti-American or not.
He played it like the original meaning of the word "gay." PotC's the only thing I've ever seen him in that I liked.
Richards is playing Jack Sparrow's father in the sequel...
He doesn't "deserve" my money. But I'd say he's earned it by past performances. His movies are usually good and odds are this one is good as well. He can have his opinion and howl at the moon if he wants.
I don't know that Wilder was very accurate to the books, or whether Depp is either. As for anti-American's in Hollywood if you go ignoring all the work done by liberals there your movie viewing will be scant. Depp is a talented actor, if a poor patriot, and poor evaluator of global politics. Still 50% of America roughly voted for John Kerry beleiving he would help the lower class while knowing he was a treasonist bastard and mega mega rich guy. So maybe that's the part of America Depp was calling dumb. If anything describes liberals it's happy puppy dumbness combined with uninstigated aggression.
(singing) Doompity do!
"But not for this one, I can never get that Ooompa Looompa song out of my head."
I think that for this one they left out the songs. From what I understand Roald Dahl's widow had ultimate creative control, and the movie will be much more true to the book than the Gene Wilder film.
Thanks. I really needed that.
