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

"WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY - A WORLD OF PURE IMAGINATION Though he may be the greatest children's author of all time, Roald Dahl's work has proved difficult to adapt to the screen. This is sometimes down to filmmakers' apparent need to tinker with perfection and many of Dahl's stories have been devalued by the addition of feeble subplots, additional characters and tacked-on happy endings, but the art of adaptation is a necessary part of the transition from page to screen and this oft"
