By Rick Gonzales | Post it
Chances are, if you’ve seen Amber Heard in the last couple of years, it wasn’t on the big screen. Chances are you were watching the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial, where the final verdict may have really had an impact on Amber Heard’s net worth. Before that, her last venture on the big screen was in 2019 with the feature film Gorgewhere she wasn’t even a featured star, although she still counts on the list of Amber Heard movies.
Other than Gorge, the past three years have seen Amber Heard with a project. It was for Paramount+ and it was the unfortunately bad review of Stephen King’s The kiosk. It also had the Snyder Cut of Justice Leaguebut this movie was shot in 2017.
Because of this, we decided to take a look at Amber Heard’s film career to see if we could pick out some of her “best” films. You might be surprised, but she actually has some decent movies out there, despite her inability to act (probably not being fair to her).
The list we will provide are not films in which Heard has a small role, such as Zombie Country, but ones that carry a little more dramatic weight. Well, here are some of the top movies on Amber Heard’s movie list, presented with our world-famous Giant Freakin Movie Score.
THE AMBER HEARD’S MOVIE LIST STARTS WITH HER SMELL
The top score on the Amber Heard movie list goes to Her smell. It was released in 2018 and told the story of Becky Something, played by Elizabeth Moss, a self-destructive rock musician with immense talent. The film is divided into five parts and has footage from the original film mixed in to show the band’s early success. Elizabeth Moss delivers a tour-de-force.
Amber Heard stars as Zelda E. Zekiel, a musician who ends up mentoring Becky Something. Things are going well for the couple until drinking and drugs take over Becky’s life and she ends up hating Zelda. The film was well received by critics and ranks there as one of the top films in Amber Heard’s film list.
GIANT FREAKIN’ MOVIE RATING: 7.2/10
AMBER LISTENED TO THE DANISH GIRL
Next on the Amber Heard movie list is The girl from Denmark. Released in 2015, it starred Eddie Redmayne as Lili Elbe, one of the first recipients of gender reassignment surgery. The film was loosely based on the real-life Danish painter Lili Elbe (who started out as Einar Wegener) and chronicles her journey and relationship with her wife Gerda Wegener, played here by Alicia Vikander.
It is from Gerda’s request that her husband Einar pose for her (Gerda was a portrait painter) that Einar discovers his lifelong gender identity as a woman.
Amber Heard makes history as Ulla Paulson, a Danish actress and ballerina who was the subject of many portraits by Gerda Wegener. This controversial movie is another top movie in Amber Heard movie list.
GIANT FREAKIN’ MOVIE RATING: 6.9/10
THE LIST OF AMBER HEARD HAS THE JONESES MOVIES
The Joneses tells the story of a family, the Joneses, who aren’t really a family. In reality, they are a group of stealth marketers posing as a family to get others to respond to their endless product placement. They arrive in the unsuspecting neighborhood, ready to make their sales.
The film stars Demi Moore, David Duchovny, Ben Hollingsworth and Amber Heard. Moore is the leader of the marketing sales force while Duchovny is a newcomer to the team. Amber Heard shows off her acting chops as a closet nympho who enjoys banging her fake fathers.
GIANT FREAKIN’ MOVIE RATING: 6.3/10
MET JOHNNY DEPP IN THE DIARY ROOM
The movie that started it all. Amber Heard met her future ex-husband Johnny Depp on set The Rum Diary and the rest, as they say, is history. The story of the film is based on a novel of the same name by Hunter S. Thompson. It follows Depp’s Paul Kemp, who is a writer unable to sell a book.
Amber Heard is Chenault and when Kemp first meets her, she is thin. As in real life, Depp’s Kemp is immediately taken by her beauty. But Chenault has a friend, Hal Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart) who only complicates things for Paul. He tries to find his author’s voice while Chenault falls in love with him. It’s a solid entry in Amber Heard’s movie list.
GIANT FREAKIN’ MOVIE RATING: 5.6/10
ONCE AGAIN SCORE USED ON AMBER LISTEN LIST OF MOVIES
One more time It stars Amber Heard as Jude Lipman, a struggling musician who wants to reunite with her wealthy father, Paul, played by Christopher Walken. Paul is an aging musician who wants to make one last chance to make a musical comeback.
The film works mainly because of Walken’s performance, but it doesn’t take away from Heard’s role in the film. She has a great relationship with Walken and is definitely holding her own. This is one movie on Amber Heard’s movie list that might surprise you.
GIANT FREAKIN’ MOVIE RATING: 5.2/10
NICOLAS CAGE DRIVES ANGRY WITH AMBER HEARD
Nothing like driving like a bat out of hell! That movie, I drive angryhelmed by the always solid, if not over-the-top, Nicolas Cage, it tells a story about a man, John Milton (Cage) who escapes hell with the devil’s weapon, The Godkiller, at his side.
His goal? To hunt down a satanic cult leader who killed Milton’s daughter and her husband and who plans to sacrifice Milton’s granddaughter to unleash Hell on Earth.
Amber Heard steps into this horror action flick as Piper Lee, a waitress with a cheating boyfriend. After finding him once again in bed with another woman, Piper beats the girl and then leaves her boyfriend only to meet up with Milton and join forces to save his granddaughter. However, this is about Cage. Did you think it wouldn’t be?
GIANT FREAKIN’ MOVIE RATING: 5.1/10
ALL BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE
Amber Heard is the title character All the boys love Mandy Lane, a horror story that is not what it first seems. Maddy arrives at her high school in Texas after a flourishing summer. All the boys, as the title suggests, love her now.
Maddy is invited to a party but says she won’t go unless her best friend, Emmett, can come with her. When they arrive, some of the bystanders, led by Dylan, begin bullying Emmet, until Mandy enters.
But Emmett is ready for revenge and the rest of the movie follows his revenge plan. Or is it Mandy’s plan? It’s on Amber Heard’s movie list, so it must be good, right?
GIANT FREAKIN’ MOVIE RATING: 5.1/10
AMBER HEARD IN 3 DAYS TO KILL
Before Kevin Costner was known as patriarch John Dutton Yellowstone, had a fine feature career himself. One of those movies was 3 days to kill, where he starred as Ethan Renner, a CIA agent who is given the unfortunate diagnosis of terminal glioblastoma cancer. He only has a few months to live.
Enter Vivi Delay (Amber Heard), an elite CIA assassin. He needs Renner’s help to track down a vicious German arms dealer, Wolf. In exchange for his help, Delay will give him an experimental drug that could help Renner dramatically extend his life.
He backs out because he wants more time with his daughter Zooey (Hailee Steinfeld). Is everything going according to plan? Of course not.
GIANT FREAKIN’ MOVIE RATING: 4.5/10
So these Giant Freakin’ movie scores to Amber Heard’s movie list her performances or the movies themselves. For the most part, the score is always for the film, but yes, getting a look at individual performances is also part of the deal. The same goes for Amber Heard.
Throughout her career, Amber Heard has never been known as a leading actress. She has often been called wooden, flat and emotionless in her performances and she really showed these ‘traits’ during the Depp v Heard trial.
But dig around and if you have the time (and courage) to check out some of the movies on Amber Heard’s movie list, you might find a performance or two that isn’t half bad.
