This post is for The Film Experience’s awesome series Hit Me With Your Best Shot series.

I chose this difficult to cap moment because it’s when Edward fully realizes that he can’t pass as normal anymore so he rips off his suburban costume. This would probably work better as a gif but I still haven’t taught myself how to make those.

Normally when I do one of these I go overboard telling you everything that I love about the specific film. However I’m currently highly emotional so I mainly just cried while rewatching this Tim Burton film for the first time in years.

4 out of 5 stars

Dark Shadows is a campy horror comedy. It’s based on a supernatural soap opera about a vampire named Barnabas Collins that aired from the late ’60s to the early ’70s. The show was remade in the ’90s. The film version is set in the early ’70s. Tim Burton’s film stars his muse Johnny Depp as well as his long time girlfriend (she would be considered his common law wife if they lived in the US), the awesome Helena Bonham Carter.

The cast is rounded out by Eva Green, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jonny Lee Miller and Jackie Earle Haley (or as we may always think of him, 2nd Freddy Krueger).


Please enjoy my long but fun and informative video review of the film, above. It touches on the issues with feminism prevalent within the film because I could not avoid it for some reason.

This post is a part of 90s Month.

I didn’t just want to do a teen idols post because that’s been done a lot. Plus I had a lot of odd or not age appropriate crushes as a preteen/teen. So I chose guys who I found hot back in the 90s. Because I had decided on shirtless photos they had to have turned 18 by the end of the 90s. I also used photos from the 90s when available & applicable.

This is to recap my twitter/tumblr feed from the day I had my own Johnny Depp Movie Marathon Tweetathon. Check that post for full info. Basically I just watched a bunch of Johnny Depp movies and live tweeted it. Now I’m thinking that it would look better if I had taken screenshots of my feed instead of just saved the text but oh well it’s too late to remake that decision now. I’m not including the Depp related retweets that I did as it would be confusing. I also didn’t include any tweets that weren’t relevant to the tweetathon in some way. This wasn’t the first time I had watched any of these movies which was probably a mistake. I think next time I do one I will add in a title or 2 that is new to me because it will be more interesting. I also think that next time I think I’ll give more notice in case other people want to join me. Tweets are in italics.

That took amazing hand eye coordination. The Freaker is fun even though I rarely remember to use it. I got mine during their Kickstarter program. You can buy one here.

I finished by watching The Libertine.

The stupid will like you in 5 years time, the envious never” – #TheLibertine #JohnnyDepp #JDeppTweet Monday, August 01, 2011 12:19:13 AM via TwitLonger Beta

“I would call you a man who pretends to like life more than he does” “Is that a cynic?” – #TheLibertine #JohnnyDepp #JDeppTweet Monday, August 01, 2011 12:35:51 AM via web

I felt like I was tweeting too many movie quotes so I put these on tumblr instead.

“I have to speak my mind because what is in my mind is always more interesting than what is happening in the world outside of my mind” “Makes you impossible to live with though”

“Anyone can drink” “Few can match my determination”

“you were trained as a lawyer, you write plays for money”

“in Paris fornication in the streets with total strangers is compulsory”

-The Libertine

(Aside from the Sweeney Todd stuff from tumblr the other photos were just added to this post for visual interest. I did not tweet them during the Tweetathon. That would be obnoxious…and too much like work.)

I was recently reading about the Bad Movie MegaTwitterthon 6/4/11: Introduction to Destruction at Mr. Gable’s Reality via She Blogged By Night and thought that I would like to do the same thing but with Johnny Depp movies. Recently I thought about how I’d like to have a little Johnny Depp marathon for myself and this seemed like a fun thing to do in tandem with that.

So Sunday, July 31, 2011, (tomorrow) I will be watching a bunch of Depp flicks and tweeting about them. If you’re also a twitter freak then you can participate and follow along by using the hashtag #JDeppTweet and/or #JohnnyDepp. I will be following along. Many times we tweet about movies anyhow and sometimes we even watch them together after mentioning what channel they are on anyway. You can also follow along on with me on my twitter here or on GetGlue, mine is here but I don’t know if I’ll remember to check in. If you are not on twitter or GetGlue feel free to comment below. If you participate then I might do it again soon.

my stack of Depp DVDs

My game plan is most likely Blow, Secret Window, The Ninth Gate and then 1 of or a combination of Ed Wood, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Libertine, Rango and Sweeney Todd. Feel free to invent your own.

You are probably thinking, “Mary, I don’t have a stack of Johnny Depp DVDs laying around”. Lucky for you that I have compiled a list of other means of watching his movies below.

I will be eating guacamole (via the above recipe from a Giant Eagle circular). It’s the recipe I always use except I use a food processor because I like it smoother. I also cut the recipe down and use less so it can get eaten before turning brown. You can subsitute regular onions for the red onions, lemon juice for the lime juice and garlic seasoning for the actual garlic if you don’t have those things on hand. Last time I made it I threw in some mushrooms too, which were tasty. Then dip in your tortilla chips and you are set.

I will also be having some type of beer (hopefully with lime flavoring) and some tequila.

If none of these are your favorite check out his filmography on see to a list of all of his roles. Feel free to share why certain roles or films of his have touched you by posting a comment.
