Charlie and Chocolate Factory

Post#1 » Sat Aug 06, 2005 3:39 pm

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is a remake of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory, as anyone could guess. I found it quite funny. It really made me feel like a kid again! Also, it has some serious parts, showing Willy Wonka's childhood, and about his father. (which is played by Christopher Lee, by the way...) It has many different parts, which I thought neither improved or ruined the story. For example, the other children besides Charlie: their names were the same, and the had mostly the same characteristics as before, but it was modernized. ( the kid who liked cowboy shows, liked violent video games)
The Oompa Loompas were played by a cute little Italian guy. Awww. They (he) do a lot of different "Ooopa Loompa's Little Lessons" songs in the movie (when the children each do something naughty) and they're all different genres of songs. It's really cute.
If anyone is wondering whether the movie is a "must-see" or not, I'd say only if you would like to dip in the your "child-side!" :)

Is it ? I thought it was based on Roald Dahl's novel ?

The new movie, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has the same title as Roald Dahl's book, on which it is based. The earlier movie, staring Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka, was also based this same book, but was titled Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory.

Neither movie should be missed if you are young or young at heart.

Actually, I don't know for I have never read it either; however, because they did make two movies from it I have a pretty good idea that it is actually quite good. Normally they take good books and make bad movies from them rather than the other way around. :tongueelf: Of course I may be wrong. :happyelf:

The book is really good, though the sequel to it, "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator" wasn't nearly as good. This movie is actually closer to the book than the original, in which Willy Wonka was portrayed as a happy-go-lucky, funny guy. Roald Dahl hated the first version and refused to let them name it after his movie or even take part in it. His wife said that Dahl, however, would ahve loved this version. Personally, I thought that Johnny Depp did a fantastic job portraying Willy Wonka, but that was just me, i adored the movie.

I'm a big fan of Johnny, too. But you have to admit he looked freaky as willy wonka...
