It was just to weird I know Tim Burton's movies are really out there but to far for me.
(I saw the original in the theatre as a child)

Because it is "weird" that makes it horrible? Willy Wonka is not exactly a normal person. And from my understanding, CACF is closer to the book than the original film "Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory". Gene Wilder at first did not understand filming a remake until he saw the end result. Even he thought it was brilliant. So let's just say CACF is "different"..K?

The music was bad,this movie is more like the book than the original which I STILL watch I do have both on dvd,,HORRIBLE may have been a strong word but it was one of the few Depp movies I did not like.
Have not seen Nick Of Time as I don't care for that type of movie from anyone.

Well, what type of movie do you think "Nick Of Time" is? I have seen and own all of Johnny's films. There are a select few that I did not care for, but I at least gave them a chance,,because I LOVE JOHNNY!

I am a oldie movie fan actors like the late Bob Hope,John Wayne,I love sports movies all of the Major League movies,also like cop movies the Lethal Weapon series,Tango & Cash.
One of my favorite Depp movies is Whats Eating Gilbert Grape.

I am a bit confused..you say you don't care for thrillers. But, in an earlier post you said "I love 99.9% OF Johnnys other movies". At least 25% of Johnny's films are horror/thrillers! "Secret Window", "Astronauts Wife", "Sleepy Hollow", "Sweeney Todd", "9th Gate", "From Hell", "A Nightmare on Elm Street" to name a few are horror/thrillers. "Nick of Time" would be considered more of a suspense film. Much much milder than the films I listed here. Besides "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" and CACF, what other JD films have you actually seen?

I have seen them he was wonderful in all them but I will not watch them again,(I even have them on dvd IN CASE I get the nerve up again).I am a wuss when it comes to movies I get so freaked out.
Cry baby was a another fav as was all three of the Pirates movies saw the last one about 5-6 times (at the drive-in)I wish I was not such a weeney when it comes to movies.

I watched Nightmare ONLY because Johnny was in it.
Maybe suspense is a better word as I usually lump movies by chick flick,sports,comedy.... suspense/thriller is the same for me.

Sandra Bullock is another one that has movies I have seen and loved but I am not sure if I will watch them again.

JD didn't get voted People's Sexiest Man of the Year
by playing weird characters. Different roles are ok but all that face makeup just hides one fine looking man! I'm sorry to hear that Burton will be directing Dark Shadows. Here comes another freak show.

Johnny is nown for playing strange charactors like Cry baby, Edward scissor hands, Edwood, Fear in las vages, sleepy hollow, charlie and the chocolate factory, Pirates of the caribbean, Sweeney Todd and Alice in wonderland thats what makes him so great, i cant think of anyone who could pull it off like he can
