How Depp is Your Love Or What About Dark Shadows…

leave a comment »

While the title of this post calls up “How Deep is Your Love” by the BeeGees circa 1977, this post actually addresses the characters that Johnny Depp has played recently. I have went on this rant several times in the past few weeks with many, many people… What can I say, I’m a ranter. But back on topic, I am getting really tired of seeing Johnny Depp in quirky roles wherein he plays enigmatic characters that are awkward and silly… He’s a much more talented than the things that he has been doing lately.

I have come to the conclusion because it seems every time I turn around he is doing something with Tim Burton or someone else that requires him to be this over the top character… The most recent is his role of Barnabas Collins in the Dark Shadows remake, direct by Tim Burton. While most of the films that Depp’s odd personae appear in Burton films, this is not always the case… but this one appears to be in line with all the other Burton films.

Here another of these roles comes into play… While I am going to go see the movie, being familiar with the original Dark Shadows, I am concerned that Depp and Burton may have weirded-up the characters in the story making it more Beetlejuice and monster menagerie… Again, I don’t know, but I do know that Depp will be a strange character indeed from the trailer… We will see what will happen… Here’s hoping that this other Depp performance with Burton won’t be overly weird, even though I’m feeling that it might due to his other recent movies (Alice in Wonderland, The Rum Diary, and others…).
