"There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination. Living there, you'll be free if you truly wish to be."

Many people will possess fond memories of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory being an essential component of their childhood due to the film's status as one of the greatest family films of all time. I will admit that as a child I did view this film a few times and I tho... read more

It's sad to see that the only reviews so far on this wonderful classic are negative ones. Well, it's time to balance things out!

I personally, loved this film, yes there's only so many times you can watch it, but I still found it highly enjoyable. I do not, for even a second, believe that it's 'dated', it's anything but. Also, if a film truly is 'dated' how exactly is it the films f... read more

Entertaining but I prefer Tim Burton's version.

I never saw this film as a young child so I don't love it half as much as people who have grown up with it. There were some moments of the film that I really liked but there were some moments that I didn't really like. I think the main thing that I liked about this film was the fact that it was a musical, the songs were very catchy and brilliantly written and I could easily tell that it is one of ... read more

The world is astounded when Willy Wonka, for years a recluse in his factory, announces that five lucky people will be given a tour of the factory, shown all the secrets of his amazing candy, and one will win a lifetime supply of Wonka chocolate.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2014: March (20 movies items)

"Re-watch - March 8th We took a break after The Simpsons Movie, and then I asked her if she'd like to watch this one. As I said last month, she loves the book & she enjoyed Burton's adaptation, so I figured she should check out the first film adaptation too. And for the most part she enjoyed it as well. She asked a few times about some of the creative liberties the film takes that result in variations from the book & Burton's film ("Why isn't the boat like a seahorse?" "The Oompa Loompas are sup"

A decent classic

“I refer Tim Burton's version of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' to Mel Stuart's version but some refer this version

'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory' isn't as good as 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' but still a decent classic, Mel Stuart died just last year who retired in 2000 and we haven't heard a lot from a lot of the cast in this flick (most of them are dead now)

Peter Ostrum never did act again, this was his only movie, today he is a large animal veterinarian and Gene Wilder retired acting in 2003 who has refused to see Tim Burton's remake of 'Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory'

Jack Albertson, Roy Kinnear and others are dead now, so if you want to interview the cast of either movie, interview the cast of Tim Burton's version, more of them ar” read more
