One Response to “Charlie And The Chocolate Factory (2005)”

  1. I see you didn’t take the “this one cannot hold a candle to the original, dammit!” track, and I like that — better to focus on this movie. They are two very different films, and both have merit.

    Johnny Depp’s take on Willy Wonka gave me the wiggins big-time. He managed to be part sad, scared little boy and part creepy, undiscovered pedophile … and he did this whilst sporting a bob cut Posh Spice would envy.

    Though I’m a fan of the original, I will say that Tim Burton’s version captures the stunning colors and images in Roald Dahl’s book in ways that boggle the mind. It’s a visual treat if nothing else.
