Johnny Depp has appeared in several Tim Burton films over the years. One of my favorite movies is Charlie and the chocolate factory where Johnny Depp plays Willy Wonka, a mysterious chocolate who is looking for a special child to take over the chocolate factory. I like this movie because it portrays a good message about karma to children. When you do bad things bad things happen to you and this is humorously portrayed throughout the movie when each child comes into unfortunate circumstances as a direct result of their greedy and nasty behavior.
Another movie featuring Johnny Depp that I love is the Corpse Bride where Victor Van Dort (played by Johnny Depp) plays a shy groom to be who is whisked off to “the underworld” and is wed to a corpse. This movie is a feel good love story that portrays the world of the living and the world of the dead in a refreshingly different light.
If I had to pick a favorite of the two movies I would choose Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because it has a deeper and more relevant message for children these days. Tim Burton has a great imagination and has a great knack for creating entertaining and creative films. Another Tim Burton/ Johnny Depp film is coming out December 21st called Sweeny Todd. You can visit the official Sweeney Todd movie site for more information and for some entertainment.
