Willy Wonka

Is it just me, or is this a horribly perverted name for children’s book character?

Anyway, if you are lucky enough to not have seen the remake of this movie, don’t bother. It is total crap. It is definitely one of those movies that did not need to be remade.

I like Johnny Depp, but he was horrible in this role. But of course, Gene Wilder is Willy Wonka. There was no way Depp could fill those shoes for me.

Why is Burton doing remakes? Did he not learn from Planet of the Apes? I could understand taking a bad movie with a good concept, and trying to remake it better. But why remake classics? They are classics for a reason. It is sad to see such a talented man sell out.

I recently saw the original and the remake within a couple days of each other.

I totally agree. I do not understand why they remade the original. There was nothing really original in the remake other than the scene at the end that depicts Willy Wonka and Charlie's family together.

My daughter thought Johnny Depp looked like Michael Jackson which I suspect was a look they were going for.

The new Oompa Loompa was kind of cool but it was a total waste of $$$$. The original really does raise a lot of questions and I was amazed at how well it stands up decades later.
