Johnny Depp
Actor Johnny Depp was desperate for his parents to break up as he grew tired of their constant fighting throughout his childhood.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star admits his upbringing was blighted by arguments between his dad John and mother Betty Sue, and he longed for them to end their unhappy marriage.

He says, "I recall hearing my parents argue and thinking: 'Come on, this is torture. Just split!' They stuck it out until I was 15, but I'd seen it coming for years. When they finally did divorce, I thought: 'OK, this is the right thing.'

"My mom got ill after my father left, so my...

Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp has revealed he was as confused as Captain Jack Sparrow while filming scenes for the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels - because neither he nor director Gore Verbinski had any idea what was going on.

The movie star admits scenes were shot as writers were trying to figure out where to take the plot.

He tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "They had to invent a trilogy out of nowhere. It was plot-driven and complicated. I remember talking to Gore at certain points during production of (sequels) two or three and saying, 'I don't really know what this means.'

Leave Remakes Alone! Part 1: Across The Pond

January 3rd, 2011 8:36pm EST
Star Trek
The remake. Shudder. Ick. Gross. Barf. There were something like 55 movie remakes in the works as of 2008, surely more now. Talk about hitting the bottom of the creative barrel. I mean, movie goers hate remakes *so* much they've stopped hating on sequels. And what's worse, most sequels stopped being bad.

As an aside, If you told someone ten years ago that Rocky VI would be one of the best in the series, they'd laugh all the way "Cop Land". Hit movies are now part of a vision for a continuing franchise, movies are made with a trilogy in mind and they're all pretty good. “Pirates Of the Cari...
