Sorry to hear you had a crappy date Pipes. Go figure....a married woman on a date. :roll: Pretty bad when you have to come out and ask if you're married.

I just saw Secret Window, with Johnny Depp.. WOOO What a freaky movie, Stephen King is the master.. The ending really makes you wonder how exactly he [King] comes up with compelling story after story after story.. kinda spooked me :) What is this guy hinting at?? lol

Anyways.. really good movie, Johnny Depp always kills it every time he graces the screen.. I can't wait to see him as Hunter S. Thompson again in the Rum Diaries.

wow, cat dog, you liked that? I thought that was a really bad movie, I actually knew what would happen at the end as soon as the guy reported to the door claiming the [Depp] had stolen his stories.

I watched Secret Window a few weeks ago for the first time and loved it!!! Dad didn't get it ... So I took half an hour to explain it. But anyways, I read the book a while before the movie was released and it turns out that I liked the movie better.

Yah I've been meaning to see that one, Big Stephen King Fan. (I have many many 1st edition HC Books).

Johnny Depp is a great actor, I actually just saw Sleepy Hallow for the first time and even though it wasn't the greatest movie for a Tim Burton flick,  I thought his charactor was great, I love the quote "We have many murders in New York without the help of ghouls and goblins"

He also has another movie comming out in 2005. A remake of Wonka and the chocolate factory, also directed by Tim Burton (Currently being filmed).

I saw "The Grudge" tonight in theatres. It might be worth seeing, it depends, but wait til video for sure. I keep trying not to think about how i spent 10 dollars to watch it. The previews make it seem pretty scary but overall the story seems disjointed, and the premise certainly isn't new and thrilling... it's just a horror that maks you jump, except I didn't really jump... and I thought that it was more 'creepy' then it was scary, the 'ghosts' didn't make me cringe when they saw the face I didn't want to look away, it was gross the first couple times then I just though 'oh well, whatever.' Pretty predictable as well.

Then again, I loved the Blaire Witch Project, and everyone else hated it.

Oh, at the end of The Grudge I turned to my companion and said "That better not be the end..." and it was. And the audience let out a groan of dissapointment. One person began clapping but no one else seemed interested in celebrating.

Johnny Depp's inspiration for his portrayal of Capt. Jack Sparrow was Keith Richards. Keith is taking the part of his father in the sequel Pirates of the Caribbean II  & III -  rrr  matey,  tie that scurvy dog to the yard arm.

My wife thinks he's really hot ! When I think back on all the great flicks that he has been in ,I realize that he really has some serious talent!

We just got back from "The Incredibles". Pretty fun for a kids movie.

I missed Oprah :wink:  Happened to hear it on the Howard Stern Show, Oprahs fav. I have an unopened magazine of Keith naked walking on the beach. I can't find the open one I had? Damn thieves stole my porn collection & they were the creme da la creme.

BK I totally agree with you in regards to "Secret Window"
I figured out the "Twist" within the first 5 minutes...pretty weak!
I'm a huge Johnny fan.
"BLOW" is my absolute fav, when he's walking through the airport with that cream suit on....YUMMY
He's HOT!!! :lol:

It's weird you should mention Oprah, I NEVER watch it but I did see it on Tuesday with Johnny Depp. I was watching it more because Kate Winlet was on after Johnny though.

One of the best films Johnny has made, and THE best thing Leonardo ever did (nice turn for Juliette Lewis too:

I saw that movie when I was really young, I don't even remember Johnny Depp being in it. It was a disturbing film as far as I remember...but good.

I don't think you are thinking of the same movie."What's eating Gilbert Grape" was a beautiful film,  and JD was the main character(Gilbert) so it was pretty hard to miss him.

What's Eating Gilbert Grape is another great movie by Johnny Depp. I have to say that Leonardo did a fabulous job as well. If someone didn't know who he was, they would think that he was actually handicapped. :shock:

I didn't realise Johnny Depp was in it because at the time, I didn't care who was in it. Like I said, it was a long time ago. I know we're thinking of the same movie-in one scene a mentally challanged brother is left in a bathtub by accident, right? And he has an obbsession with climbing up some tower?

Yes I agree, I thought Leonardo's performance was very believable.  He also gave a good performance in "This Boy's Life", a movie he did with the great Robert DeNiro.  It was because of this that DeNiro recommended him to Scorsese for “Gangs of New York”.  I just saw where Leonardo said that he regretted taking the part in “The Titanic”, it sort of type-cast him.  That is what I like about Johnny Depp, apart from his great talent, he seems to only take roles that interest him, rather than playing blander roles in movies that are bound to become commercial successes.

Yes, I have seen This Boy's Life as well and it is a good movie. I can't believe that Leonardo regrets doing Titanic. That is the biggest movie in history and he'll be remembered for that forever. I really liked that movie. But I agree with you shake, Johnny is a great actor and doesn't worry about it being the greatest part...... works on what he likes. I loved him in Sleepy Hollow as well. The part where he went in the woods to see the murder ( when he first arrived ) and stumbled off the horse and when he was on the horse backwards, it reminded me so much of Icabod Crane on the cartoon. Made me laugh. But the only thing is that he was a much hotter Icabod Crane! :wink:  :lol:

On to another movie...How 'bout "Bronx Tale" with Bobby Deniro, & Chaz Palmenteri (I think that's how you spell it?)
That was a good one!
Also "Basketball Diaries" with Leo, I really can't handle too much of Decaprio, but Marky Mark is always "HOT", I don't care how dumb the movie...Well I will admit, "The Truth About Charlie" was hard to get through!

Just saw "Elephant" tonight, by director Gus Van Sant http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0363589/ (Good Will Hunting, Finding Forrester) - What a great movie.. intense highschool drama that mimics Columbine in a way. It won Best Film, and Best Director at Cannes, truely artistic, great movie.
