Slightly effeminate pirate captain, alcoholic Gonzo journalist, mentally unstable candy manufacturer: a screenwriter has not yet devised a role so outlandish Johnny Depp can't nail it. Enjoy the whackiest of his creations with this collection of all his starring roles.
This contemporary collection of mysteries are so dark you'll need to turn up the screen brightness on your laptop. Make sure to check out 'Stonehearst Asylum' for a fantastic horror/thriller based on a short-story by Edgar Allen Poe.
Graphic novel action movies that retain the comic-book feel of their source material, including 'V for Vendetta', 'Sin City', and '300'. Make sure to check out Bruce Lee's son Brandon in cult classic 'The Crow', for a dark treat! Note: all mainstream superheroes excluded.
Modern movies in the vein of 'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen': watch Victorian-era gentlemen battle Machiavellian evil-geniuses, woefully under-equipped colonial foes, and, the greatest enemy of all: their own emotions. Oh, and yes, we realize not all fit directly in to the Victorian era - pedants!
