    Pro’s. My nieces absolutely adorred this and watched it 3x during the rental period. Con’s; This is nowhere near as charming, interesting well executed or entertaining as the Gene Wilder original. Johnny Depp comes off incredibly creepy. Like a deranged Michael Jackson during the child abuse allegations. It’s awkward and uncomfortable for adults.Read more

    I wanted this movie for a really long time. I grew up with Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the one with Gene Wilder. I enjoyed this film when I saw it in theaters. When this came on DVD in 2005, I asked if my mother or aunt would buy it for me. They refused because it was too weird for them. They ended up buying Hoodwinked instead. I guess I understand their reason, they grew up with the 1971 film, my older brother used to watch it on VHS all the time. Now that I can afford to buy the movies I want. This was a must have. I do prefer this film a bit more over the original. No offense, but this one didn’t have a lot of musical numbers that weren’t needed. And Dahl’s family approved this film. The film comes with a collectible booklet with full color shots and images from the set of the film. Along with a note from the director himself Tim Burton. (I just added that stuff on his face to be funny!) The pictures in the booklet are pretty cool, this set is similar to the Batman 1989 20th Anniversary set, another movie directed by Burton. The quality of the film is full 1080. Meaning that there’s no black bars when you play it on your HD TV. I like that quality the most, because it proves that you’re not missing anything when you watch it. This will play on a Xbox One or PS4 perfectly whichever one you have. I don’t think it will work well on old Blu-Ray players made in 2011 or older, because those are outdated. The main menu is like any Warner Bros. menu. That means when you load the disc, there will be no previews, it will play the movie automatically. You’ll have a pop-up menu throughout the movie which gives you options for Languages, Scene Selections and Special Features. If you want to get to the real main menu, you have to wait till the movie is done or skip to the end, like any other WB Blu-Ray. But the downside is like any other WB Blu-Ray, you have to suffer through all those Warnings against piracy in practically every language before you get to the menu. You can skip it, but it’s over 30 languages. It’s gonna take a while. By the time you get to the main menu. It’s not as impressive as you think. It’s a blue menu with a bunch of options. A basic WB menu. This is still worth a buy, it’s a great collectors set and if you enjoy the movie as much as I do. Watching this will be like enjoying that sweet, rich, dark chocolate.Read more

    So it was a little fun watching just to see what weirdo turns Tim Burton took with it… but this is nowhere near as good as the original. Johnny Depp just turned Wonka into a twisted creep I never liked one bit. None of the charm of Gene Wilder. Sorry, but you just can’t touch the original or how the original makes you feel. I can’t believe Charlie is Freddy Highmore from Bates Motel and The Good Doctor, ha ha… I love that guy. Very talented cast for sure. But overall, it’s just a twisted Dr. Seuss style copy with extra helpings of The Grinch. The frames of the Bucket house look like the ghetto in Whoville. Fun to look at the new colors but no real substance here. I suggest an evening with Frankenweenie for a more original retelling over this wannabe.Read more

    When remakes are done it’s usually because the film needs to be updated for a younger audience. I’m not so sure another version of Raol Dahl’s book was necessary, but someone made it anyway. The result is a very stylistic yet tepid film that lacks the poignant bight of the film that starred Wilder. You can’t fault it technically, because it is a very competent production, and the familial message at the end is decent enough, but Johnny Depp is no Gene Wilder, lacking both zingers and energy to deliver them when the miscreant kids misbehave. I don’t know, I guess maybe I’m emotionally attached to the film I saw as a kid, because when Charlie got his golden ticket I and the audience were excited for him. You get some of those same feelings here for this film’s Charlie, but the sense of wonderment as you tour the factory is somehow lost. Again, maybe children who see this film will be impacted differently, it is after all a film meant for them. It’s interesting for what it is, but it does seem a bit dark and less inviting than its predecessor. And I think ultimately that’s the vibe of the entire film that holds back a better cinematic experience. One can’t help but wonder what would happen if you gave 1960s film makers today’s technology to improve on or otherwise tweak the original as opposed to attempting a remake. Make of that what you will. If you have a kid he might like it, but I think there are better children’s films out there.Read more

    Good movie. I’ve watched it twice now. The original movie was financed by Quaker Oats to sell candy but it ended up being a classic. Freddie Higmore did a good job and was on par with Peter Ostrum as Charlie Bucket. Gene Wilder had his finest acting moment as Willy Wonka so it was a tough act to follow. Johnny Depp was wonderful as Willy Wonka thanks in part to the flashbacks to his youth, which added to his character. David Kelly a Grandpa Joe was a hoot as were the entire Bucket family and their house. Deep Roy as the Oompa Loompa was a good twist and the music was enjoyable. For free on Amazon Prime, I’d give it a go.Read more

    I didn’t like this much. I appreciate the different take on a classic movie but it’s just nowhere near as good as Gene Wilder’s original. It doesn’t give you the same joyous feeling and Depp just comes across as cold and boring. He doesn’t have Wilder’s genius and spirit. If you’ve never seen the original, buy that instead of this and then love Gene Wilder like most of us do.Read more
