Another Johnny Miss
Johnny Depp is a talented actor, no argument about that. But he has been involved in movies with one-sided characters, though funny but still one-sided. It's like watching him as the same person in different movies, even though that is really not the case. It just feels that way to me and it is getting bland. He plays caricatured characters so well that he can give all Three Stooges a run for their money. I acknowledge his acting abilities but I think we are ready for something else - another strong character. He should leave comedy and try another genre - preferably something deep. I would watch that without a second thought. I have been tired of seeing his movies since "The Lone Ranger" and then seeing him as the wolf in "Into the Woods" was like duh! of course. It's sad to say that I don't have the urge to watch "Mortdecai" at the movies, even though it may be an awesome movie. There are other movies out there now that have peaked my curiosity more. Johnny Depp should remind movie goers of his versatility and make movies that show us that. Hope is not lost. I'll be watching out for something fresh and new.
