The Five Best Johnny Depp Movies on DVD and Blu-ray

If you are anything like me, you just cannot get enough Johnny Depp so I have put together a list of the five best Johnny Depp movies based on the bestselling movies from Amazon. Interestingly, all of them are available in DVD or in blu-ray format.

Public Enemies is in first place and tells the story of John Dillinger a famous and charismatic bank robber wanted by the FBI. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone called it “a landmark crime saga.” Personally, this was not my favorite Johnny Depp movie. Johnny was indeed charismatic but be aware that this is a loud and violent movie. Loud and violent enough that I did NOT care for it.

Pirates of the Caribbean is, not surprisingly, in second place at the moment. Everyone knows this story of a humorous pirate and his adventures. With regard to the blu-ray version, S. Fry, sums it up nicely. "The sound is amazing and the picture quality is awesome even on my flat screen which only goes up to 1080i. I highly recommend this set (the blu-ray trilogy) for anyone who is a Pirates fan."

Chocolat is in third place and it seems like I am writing about it a lot these days. I have included it on my page, Searching for the Best Food Movies because it is, quite frankly, one of my favorite food-themed movies. It is one of my favorite films and it just seems to me that watching it on my HDTV on blu-ray would be simply...delicious.

In fourth place is Blow which I saw once, many many years ago. It tells the story of the rise and fall of an American kid who vows against poverty and instead builds a marijuana empire in the 1960s eventually moving on to cocaine. A nice guy gone wrong and who, in the end, got what he deserved. Amazon calls it "vibrantly entertaining, painstakingly authentic."

Finally, in fifth place, is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas a film which I have never seen and for which I am at a loss for words. However, I think Amazon customer reviewer, Sherrie A. Gulmahamad, sums it up interestingly when she says, "Fear and Loathing isn't just a drug movie (as all the extras on the DVD will reiterate over and over again) - it's a truthful, imaginative, twisted, and subversive take on the death of the most idealistic decade and generation. We get to see it all through the eyes of two renegade professionals, one a journalist and the other a lawyer, both fighting the good fight against scum and villainy."

All this has me wondering, what your favorite Johnny Depp movie is? Is it one of these or one that didn't make this list of the five bestselling Johnny Depp movies?

See you
at the movies!
