I cried the first time I saw "Edward Scissorhands". I felt so bad for him at the end.
His performance in "Sweeney Todd" gave me chills. If that hack Daniel-Day Lewis had not been nominated, he would have won a well deserved Oscar.
Although, he deserved an Oscar for "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" & "Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl" (but alas, Sean Penn stole that one).
Also, "Ed Wood" is just a great movie that doesn't get much love.
