Seriously, it seems that everyone of importance is after that blonde woman in the films, laugh :-).
I'm more fond of Johnny Depp than the woman;
You are a woman yourself, are you not ;-)? Just like men sometimes like movies where a guy has more then one woman to choose from, I suspect that women tend to like movies where the woman has more then one guy to choose from, heh :-)

Dunno if you were asking generally or IP specifically...
Don't worry, I'm not one of those types of people that does that "butt out of this, this is between me and X" types of responses, laugh :-). If I had wanted a private conversation, I would have PMed IP.

A lot of people say that about him, laugh :-). Sometimes I think I have a bit of this trait of his, which might be seen as not being able to connect to his emotions too easily. This being said, I've always thought that the characters he plays tend to have a heroic quality to them, which I've always admired.

I do as well, as long as they're not overly pretentious :-p

Same here. I want to see First Knight one day, which definitely plays on the King Arthur/Lancelot/Guinevere triangle and has Richard Gere playing Lancelot, an actor I've always liked.

I read the plot over at wikipedia, and it sounds much better then Jesus' alleged story to me, laugh :-). Personally, if we're talking about stories regarding Jesus, I think that my favourite one is encapsulated in The Da Vinci Code (I found both the book and the movie to be good). Aside from the obviously fictitious elements in the novel and film, even one of the (non fiction) books that it was based on (The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail) apparently had serious flaws to it . That being said, the story line is -so- much more interesting then the "official story" regarding the life of Jesus that I'd heard until that point that I can forgive them their innacuracies. It's not like the "official story" as told by christian religions has been shown to be any less fictitious; I'd say that it's even more so. I was also quite impressed with the first Zeitgeist documentary, which deals with religions and christianity especially, in the first part of the movie (the second and third parts deal with 9/11 and the international banking cartels, which I also found to be quite interesting).
