1987

21 Jump Street (seasons 1-4)

21 Jump Street is an American crime drama series that aired on the Fox Network from April 12, 1987 to April 27, 1991, with a total of 103 episodes. The series focused on a squad of youthful-looking undercover police officers investigating crimes in high schools, colleges, and other teenage venues.
Created by Patrick Hasburgh and Stephen J. Cannell, the series was produced by Stephen J. Cannell Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The show was an early hit for the fledgling Fox Network, and was created to attract a younger audience. The final season aired in first-run syndication mainly on local Fox affiliates. It was later completed in rerun syndication on the FX cable network (a sister company to Fox) from 1996 to 1998.
The series provided a spark to Johnny Depp’s nascent acting career, garnering him national recognition as a teen idol. Depp found this status an irritant, but he continued on the series under his contract and was paid $45,000 per episode. Eventually he was released from his contract after the fourth season.

A group of young cops whose youthful appearances enabled them to work undercover in both high schools and sometimes colleges to catch troubled youths. The show’s plots covered typical issues of its time, including alcoholism, hate crimes, drug abuse, homophobia, AIDS, child abuse, and sexual promiscuity. Similarly, each problem was often solved by the end of the hour long show, giving an implicit moral about the impact of a particular activity. When the show originally aired, some episodes were followed immediately by public service announcements featuring cast members.

1989

Cry-Baby

Cry-Baby is a 1990 musical-teen film written and directed by John Waters. It stars Johnny Depp as 1950s teen rebel « Cry-Baby » Wade Walker, and also features an expansive ensemble cast that includes Amy Locane, Iggy Pop, Traci Lords, Ricki Lake, Kim McGuire, David Nelson, Susan Tyrrell, and Patty Hearst. The film did not achieve high audience numbers in its initial release but has subsequently become a cult classic and spawned a Broadway musical of the same name which was nominated for four Tony Awards.
The film is a parody of teen musicals (particularly Grease) and centers on a group of delinquents called the « Drapes » and their interaction with the rest of the town and its other subculture, the « Squares », in 1950s Baltimore, Maryland. « Cry-Baby » Walker, a Drape, and Allison, a Square, create upheaval and turmoil in their little town of Baltimore by breaking the subculture taboos and falling in love. The film shows what the young couple have to overcome to be together and how their actions affect the rest of the town.

In 1954 Baltimore, Wade « Cry-Baby » Walker (Johnny Depp) is the leader of a gang of « Drapes », which includes his teenage mom sister Pepper (Ricki Lake), facially disfigured Mona « Hatchet Face » Malnorowski (Kim McGuire), wild and free-spirited Wanda Woodward (Traci Lords), and Milton Hackett (Darren E. Burrows), the nervous son of overzealous religious parents. His ability to shed a single tear drives all the girls wild. One day after school, he is approached by Allison Vernon-Williams (Amy Locane), a pretty girl tired of being a « Square », and the two fall in love. That same day, Cry-Baby approaches the « Square » part of town to a talent show (« Sh-Boom », « A Teenage Prayer ») at the recreation center where Allison’s grandmother (Polly Bergen) hosts events, and introduces himself to her, who is skeptical of his motives. Cry-Baby invites Allison to a party at Turkey Point, a local hangout spot for the Drapes.
Despite her grandmother’s skepticism, Allison accompanies Cry-Baby to Turkey Point and sings with the Drapes (« King Cry-Baby »). As Cry-Baby and Allison tell each other about their orphan lives (Cry-Baby’s father was sent to the electric chair after being the « Alphabet Bomber » – a killer who bombed places in alphabetical order [airport], [barber shop]); and Allison’s parents, who take separate planes so Allison won’t be alone, but their planes still collided with each other), Allison’s jealous square boyfriend, Baldwin (Stephen Mailer), starts a riot. Cry-Baby is blamed for the fight and sent to a penitentiary, outraging all his friends and even Allison’s grandmother, who is impressed by Cry-Baby’s posture, manners, and musical talent.
As Lenora (Kim Webb), a slutty girl with a crush on Cry-Baby but constantly rejected by him, claims to be pregnant with his child, Allison feels betrayed and returns to Baldwin and the Squares, though her grandmother advises her against rushing into a decision. Meanwhile, in the penitentiary, Cry-Baby gets a teardrop tattoo. He tells the tattoo artist, fellow Drape Dupree (Robert Tyree): « I’ve been hurt all my life, but real tears wash away. This one’s for Allison and I want it to last forever! ».
Eventually, Allison is persuaded by the newly-established alliance between the Drapes and her grandmother to stand by Cry-Baby and join the campaign for his release (« Please, Mr. Jailer »). Cry-Baby is released but immediately insulted by Baldwin who, after revealing that his grandfather is the one who electrocuted Cry-Baby’s father, challenges him to a chicken race. Cry-Baby wins, as Baldwin chickens out, and is reunited with Allison.
The film ends with all watching the chicken race crying a single tear, all except for Allison and Cry-Baby, who has finally let go of the past, enabling him to cry from both eyes.

1990:

Edward Scissorhands

Edward Scissorhands is a 1990 romantic fantasy film directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp. The film shows the story of an artificial man named Edward, an unfinished creation, who has scissors for hands. Edward is taken in by a suburban family and falls in love with their teenage daughter Kim. Supporting roles are portrayed by Winona Ryder, Dianne Wiest, Anthony Michael Hall, Kathy Baker, Vincent Price, and Alan Arkin.

An elderly woman describes to her granddaughter where snow comes from by telling the story of a young man named Edward (Johnny Depp) with scissors for hands, the creation of an inventor (Vincent Price). The inventor’s final result was a humanlike young boy who had everything except for hands, but the inventor had a heart attack and died while in the act of creating a pair of real hands for Edward, leaving him « unfinished » forever.
Many years after Edward was created, local Avon saleswoman Peg Boggs (Dianne Wiest) visits the Gothic mansion on a hill where Edward lives. There, she finds Edward alone, and decides to take him to her home. Edward becomes friends with Peg’s young son Kevin (Robert Oliveri) and her husband Bill (Alan Arkin). He later falls in love with the Boggs’ teenage daughter Kim (Winona Ryder).
Peg’s neighbors are impressed by Edward’s adept hedge trimming and hair cutting skills, but two of the townspeople, a religious fanatic named Esmeralda (O-Lan Jones) and Kim’s boyfriend, Jim (Anthony Michael Hall), immediately dislike him. Joyce, a housewife in the neighborhood, suggests that Edward open a hair cutting salon with her. While examining a proposed site, she attempts to seduce him in the back room, causing Edward to leave in a state of panic.
Wanting money for a van, Jim takes advantage of Edward’s ability to pick locks and breaks into his parents’ house. The burglar alarm sounds and everyone except Edward escapes, despite Kim’s angry insistence that they return for him. Edward is arrested and released when a psychological examination reveals that his isolation allowed him to live without a sense of reality and common sense. Meanwhile, infuriated by Edward’s rejection, Joyce exacts revenge by claiming that he tried to « rape » her. This, added to the « break-in », causes many of the neighbors to question his personality and ruin his popular reputation. During the Christmas season, Edward is feared by almost everyone around him except the Boggs family, resulting in him and the family becoming outcasts.

Everything is going well, until Sam and Joon start a relationship, which Benny violently dissaproves of.

 

1993:

What’s Eating Gilbert Grape

On the strength of DiCaprio and Depp’s performances, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape is a fantastic look at the anachronisms of small-town life and the myriad problems of coping with a go-nowhere existence. The dialogue is realistic to the point of putting you in the scene, and Lasse Hallström’s direction, which normally I find intrusive and workmanlike, is spot-on for once. The quirkiness of the story really puts the film over the top — you’d expect to see these people on Jerry Springer (and in fact, Cates was discovered by novelist Hedges on a daytime talk show) — making Gilbert Grape a rare slice of life that you just don’t get in the movies any more.

Ed Wood

Hollywood visionary Tim_Burton pays homage to another Hollywood visionary, albeit a less successful one, in this unusual fictionalized biography. The film follows Wood (Johnny_Depp) in his quest for film greatness as he writes and directs turkey after turkey, cross-dresses, and surrounds himself with a motley crew of Hollywood misfits, outcasts, has-beens, and never-weres. The real story, however, is his friendship with aging, morphine-addicted Bela_Lugosi (Martin_Landau), whom he tries to help stage a comeback. Landau’s unforgettable Oscar-winning performance must be seen to be believed, as must Rick_Baker’s Oscar-winning makeup. While it would have been easy to make a film simply ridiculing the bumbling director, Burton instead focuses on his driving passion for filmmaking and his unwavering persistence in the face of ridicule and failure. Possibly the most surprising aspect of the film is the genuine sentiment with which Burton treats the relationship between Wood and Lugosi; his devotion to Lugosi is touching, as is Lugosi’s final soliloquy — an inane bit of dialogue from the hilariously bad Bride of the Monster that grows into a poignant metaphor for the actor’s life and ultimate triumph of his spirit. Even the look of the film is right; it manages to preserve the air of one of Wood’s own films while retaining a sense of artistry in much of the composition on screen (note the scene at the drug rehab where Lugosi endures a horrifying night of detox). In all, Ed Wood is a unique film — at times side-splittingly funny; at others, tragic or even frightening — and a heartfelt tribute to the love of movies, good and bad alike.

However, as the 10 days progresses Dr Mickler and the other staff become gradually drawn into to the young man’s exotic world of love, passion and pleasure as he recounts his story to them. Whilst doing so the man’s philosophies and zeal for life and love begins to revive Dr MIckler’s somewhat passionless relationship with his wife, Marilyn as well as challenging his own views and ethics to the point where both he and the audience begin to question: could this young man truly be Don Juan?

Dead Man

Dead Man is the story of a young man’s journey, both physically and spiritually, into very unfamiliar terrain. William Blake travels to the extreme western frontiers of America sometime in the 2nd half of the 19th century. Lost and badly wounded, he encounters a very odd, outcast Native American, named « Nobody, » who believes Blake is actually the dead English poet of the same name. The story, with Nobody’s help, leads William Blake through situations that are in turn comical and violent. Contrary to his nature, circumstances transform Blake into a hunted outlaw, a killer, and a man whose physical existence is slowly slipping away. Thrown into a world that is cruel and chaotic, his eyes are opened to the fragility that defines the realm of the living. It is as though he passes through the surface of a mirror, and emerges into a previously-unknown world that exists on the other side.
