"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

WatchMojo's Top 10 Mind-Blowing Fan Theories in Mo (10 movies items)

"Willy Wonka is a killer This theory suggests that the celebrated candy maker snapped years ago and is actually a serial killer. Those golden tickets seal the kids’ doom as they gain access to a factory Wonka has staged to pick off his victims one by one in various ways. How else do you explain the fact that there are only a specific number of seats on his ferry? Or that the Oompa Loompas are always ready with a death song? And, if you wanna go more extreme, there are even some who think Wonka"

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"
