I am not real sure what I thought of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I mean it was good I guess, but not as good as I had hoped. Johnny Depp was FANTASTIC, he really portrayed Willy's oddness. I am not real sure why they gave him a father though. That part was pretty dumb and pointless. The kids were all pretty good. The Oompa Loompas just did not compare to the original though. I was really disappointed with them, I think that is why I did not care for the movie as much as I thought I would. I did get a little misty eyed when Charlie found the Golden Ticket, even though I knew he was going to, I was very happy for him anyhow.

I personally thought the old movie was a classic. It would be hard for a remake to equal the original in every aspect. Johnny Depp is a great actor so I guess I should check the new movie out.

I liked the new oompa loompas, a lot.

even you didn't do the new oomps, depp was a way better wonka than wilder. he should totally make up for it.

I can see why they gave him a father, because without that, there would have been no story or growth or conflict with the willy wonka character, and I can see how one would be tempted to add that. whether or not the whole christopher lee thing really worked or not is another story entirely.

plus, they weren't really trying to remake the old movie anyway.

I can't resist the thought of seeing Depp as Wonka. I HAVE to see this movie...
