I’ve seen quite a few semi threatening/anxiety inducing posts about this so i’m just here to reassure you guys that:
it is ok to still like movies that Johnny Depp is in
it is ok to still laugh at the silly Jack Sparrow scenes
it is ok to still appreciate Johhny Depp’s acting ability
you’re not a bad person for liking a Johnny Depp movie
Johnny Depp has starred in a lot of popular films (POTC, Edward Scissorhands, the original 21 Jump Street, basically every Tim Burton film ever) and it’s perfectly ok to still enjoy them and appreciate the art he has made.
However, it is not ok to:
trivialize Amber Heard’s abuse
say things like “well, I’m a big fan of Johnny so it can’t be true”
whine about how “this will ruin his career”
say terrible things like “she’s lying,” “she’s doing it for the attention,” or “she deserved it.”
I actually saw one post where someone said they were “team Johnny” like jfc I wanted to fling myself onto a cactus after that
anyway, above all else,it is not ok to say biphobic things and make this about Amber Heard’s sexuality, when really it is about domestic abuse
It’s that time of the year again! I can’t believe we’re so close to the end of 2013 already! Nonetheless, i’m looking forward to the new year and of course all the films that will be released throughout it. So without further adieu (i feel like i say this all the time… here are my most anticipated films of 2014!
'RoboCop’ (February 12th) - I remember rather fondly watching the original films when i was young and so far from what i’ve seen from the trailer this re-boot looks really good, slightly different from what i remember from the original but still nonetheless one i look forward to watching for sure!
'Captain America: The Winter Solider’ (April 4th) - I’m probably in the minority with those who thought that the first Captain America film was one of the best from the phase of the Marvel films (minus The Avengers). All i can say is that i loved the first and i hope i love this one even more!
'The Amazing Spider-man 2’ (May 2nd) - Spider-man, Spider-man, Does whatever a spider can. Back for round 2… or 5 depending on the way you look at it. This film definitely has a lot going for it and it could go either way. So i can’t wait to see how this film turns out.
'Godzilla’(May 16th)- I don’t remember the last time i saw a dinosaur film - there are the Jurassic Park films but i wasn’t old enough to watch or fully experience it in cinemas, so i guess you can say that i’m looking forward to seeing Godzilla!
'How to Train Your Dragon 2’ (June 16th) - I was rather surprised at how much i liked the first film. All i can really say right now is that i’m really glad that there’s going to be a sequel! Bring on more Hiccup and Toothless!
'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ (June 11th) - Who could forget the moment that Caesar blurted out that infamous NOO!! Shit got real and from that moment on, i was ready for this sequel to happen as soon as possible! Only 7 months to go!
'22 Jump Street' (June 13th) - Good comedies today are usually rather hard to come by and 21 Jump street was so awesomely funny and original. I really hope that this sequel will be able to do if not the same, even better!
'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ (August 8th) - Cowabunga! I remember watching and loving the cartoon and films as a kid, so i guess no matter who (Michael Bay) eventually got a hold of this film for a re-boot i’d end up watching it.
'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1’ (November 21st) - I’m not too crazy about the final book being split into 2 films. There’s a 50/50 chance it won’t work and there is of course the 1 year long wait between each film but i’m confident as the first two were great that it’ll be worthwhile!
Isn’t it weird that 6 out of the 9 films i picked are sequels?!
Here are a few other films that didn’t quite make my top 9 but i’m still looking forward to seeing! (In no particular order)
Ginnifer Goodwin is voicing Judy Hopps in Zootopia.
Judy Hopps is a rabbit, but her name is really a sly reference to officer Judy Hoffs, a character on the original 21 Jump Street television program, played by Holly Robinson Peete, alongside co-star Johnny Depp.
I suspect Zootopia might be filled with a lot of cop show puns.
