"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

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.

" Notes: Even though I have never been a fan of Roald Dahl’s book adaptations, since this movie was a classic and arguably the best of these adaptations, I was really eager to check it out. First of all, I have to admit it, it is a pretty cool story, absolutely, I even think I read the book when I was a kid but, still, I wasn’t really blown away by this movie and I would say that I preferred Tim Burton’s version. Indeed, I forgot that it was a musical version and all those songs were prett"
