Johnny Depp

Should Johnny Depp return as Jack Sparrow & Gellert Grindelwald, you decide

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent No one is sure how public opinion is on Johnny Depp's UK verdict (that labels him a 'wife-beater'), but there is a petition to return him to the roles he was fired from by Warner Bros. How do you assess a life-long career by one relationship... Then again? It only takes one circumstance to get "cancelled" these days, thanks to Cancel Culture. However, what if audiences were allowed to decide? Audiences, pros, fans, or an...

(Johnny Depp, Aileen Mioko Smith, © Lindsay Bellinger) by LINDSAY R. BELLINGER   The press conference for Minamata was delayed more than thirty minutes, allowing journalists and photographers ample time to get pumped for Johnny Depp's much anticipated arrival.

Johnny Depp in Black Mass at Venice Film Festival, Sketch by Nesta, 4th September 2015

"The evil and I are old friends. The people and the part he posed claims a tremendous responsibility for the truth to the person, Jimmy Bulger, and in painting a character you don't like. Just shooting from the hip. Bad people do bad things well, it's a quest. Depp's heroes? John Barrymore and Marlon Brando. He plays a character, not a poster boy, there's a danger transformation To look like Jimmy Bulger? The blue eye contacts." ...

Black Mass, Review: Whitey’s black deeds and the FBI’s blind eye

Black Mass, Review: Whitey’s black deeds and the FBI’s blind eye Black Mass is a term used to indicate a reverse Christian mass, the inversion of the traditional Latin Mass celebrated by the Roman Catholic Church, one that celebrates the occult. People who know this would think that a film with such a name was another supernatural horror drama. It is nothing of the kind. So, the makers toyed with the idea of changing the title, but for reasons best known to them, stuck with the or...

Keeping Up with The Kennedy, Jamie Kennedy

by Quendrith Johnson Since actor/producer Jamie Kennedy was in David O. Russell's Persian Gulf war movie "Three Kings," it seemed only fitting to catch up with him and get his reaction to Russell's recent Oscar success with "Silver Linings Playbook." "I'm not surprised," Kennedy said, "and I'm really excited for him. He's so hot right now." While you may know Jamie Kennedy from his comedy performances (as in: The Jamie Kennedy Exper...
