I just got back from seeing this movie, and it was a very fun movie to watch. The stylization was good, it wasn't overly dark or anything. The characters were nicely charactered. The humor was done well too. It was just a good movie to sit down and watch. Johnny Depp did a very good job as well.

Complaints? Well, the Oompa Loompas. The forced perspective could've been done better, and the songs were a little dumb, but they were supposed to be anyways.

I'd definately reccommend going to watch this.

I enjoyed the movie, but I got creeped out when the credits started to play. The audience started singing along to the Willy Wonka song....


:eek:

No.. REALLY?! 0_0

I did NOT realize that, you are so smart and perceptive.

¬_¬


I mean the parts where they did the forced perspective could've been a little better.

Depends on how you define "cool".

I thought the Oompa Loompa's were freaking awesome and their songs were totally wicked.

The oompa loompas looked just WRONG in the trailer... so i'll be surprised if they can overcome people's mental image of what an oompa loompa should look like (fromt he original movie)

From the hour I've seen so far, it looks to be a fun and entertaining movie. Depp did a good job.

I don't like the new Oompas... too strange. Although, I only like 2 of the new songs. The fat kid's song, and the smart kid one.

Count Dooku and Saruman are dentist!

4/5 stars.

This movie looks interesting.
But I didnt liked much the old one so I doubt I'll like this new one.

I kept thinking of the original Oompas at first. But I forgot about them after the first song.

They.are.freaky.

I haven't seen the original in a long time but at the end of it I remember Charlie getting the factory after the test with a hired spy or something. In this one they mentioned spies but they got rid of the spy test at the end which disappointed me some.
Johnny Depp was excellent as he is in all, or at least most, of his other work but I prefer Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka.
This was a fairly good remake considering most remakes I have seen in the past are crap. This remake almost made me forget that Tim Burton made piece of crap Planet of the Apes remake.
Overall I enjoyed this movie but I think the original is vastly superior.

Will someone have to explain this one more time? My God man.

:p

It's not a remake. It's based off the book.

From what i can tell its not any closer to the book than the original one... its just that it varies in different ways. they definately seem to have made major changes to the Wonka character with depp's portrayal... wheras the Wilder one seems closer in spirit to the Wonka in the book.

So while they are both different variations on the original story neither is particularly a "definitive version" of the book.

Yeah, but this one atleast contains the spirit of the book. None of that frilly musical bull****.
