#2. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
As previously mentioned, it was this Walt Disney juggernaut that propelled Depp to the peak of the Hollywood A-list. I would struggle to name an action-adventure film in the past ten years that is as entertaining, witty, lovable, and memorable as this first Pirates outing. The subsequent sequels may have dipped in quality, but there is no denying that Captain Jack’s original outing should be regarded a modern family classic for years to come.
