    Is without a doubt the greatest actor of our time. I bet none of you can think of a movie he was in that you didn't love (or enjoyed to some degree). Go on, I dare you.

    A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints. Pretty boring.

    Even though I don't remember him in that damn movie I just remember it being very disappointing due to being soooooooooooooooooo boring.

    US Marshals...ultimately this a tough one, because he's either or great or entirely forgettable.


    Let's be honest I'm just glad that I didn't click into this thread and find out he was dead.

    Also, Iron Man 2 was a let down.

    He does tend to steal the show. The Avengers, A Scanner Darkly, Tropic Thunder, Natural Born Killers, etc.

    One of my favourite actors for sure but my man crush goes to JGL.

    My favorite of his is by far Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. It's really one of my favorite movies ever.

    So I'm excited for him to be reunited with Shane Black for Ironman 3.

    Scanner Darkly and Ironman are great.. Tropic Thunder was fun, buts its a throwaway flick. nothing else is worth while.. I dig his style of acting, but he hasn't been apart of great movies..

    Leonardo Dicaprio and Johnny Depp have SUCH a bigger resume. its not even close.

    While I absolutely love Fear and Loathing.


    I find him overrated in most of his flicks. He has a lot more movies though.

    I think the only movie I enjoy of that whole list is Sleepy Hollow.

    And he was good in the 21 Jumpstreet movie because he was finally playing outside of his usual type.

    I love Johnny Depp but his resume doesn't even begin to compare with Leo and a good many other actors.. He's been in quite a few enjoyable movies, but very few great movies.

    The Great Gatsby
    Django Unchained
    Inception
    J. Edgar
    Shutter Island
    Revolutionary Road
    Blood Diamond
    The Departed
    Catch Me If You Can
    Gangs of New York
    The Aviator
    The Beach
    Titanic
    Basketball Diaries

    List bends Depps list over and shits in its ass.

    Still love Depp though, just saying.
