Wonderful Wonka

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

"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

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

Charming, and hugely enjoyable!

“This is a hugely enjoyable film, based upon the book by Roald Dahl. The film does have a number of merits, especially the flawless performance of Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka, a characterisation that is charming and funny at the same time. Another standout is Jack Albertson as Grandpa Joe, his scenes with Charlie were lovingly realised, but in his song, he was just hilarious, and his singing voice was remarkably good. However, whereas Peter Ostrum is perfectly agreeable in terms of acting as Charlie, he is let down by his lack of any real singing ability. Though the film does look beautiful with excellent cinematography and colourful sets, and the supporting characters like the Oompa Loompas, the odiously spoilt Veruca Salt, television addict Mike Tevee and the rather disgusting Violet Buera” read more

" Notes: 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 pretty boring to me. Then, I’m sorry, but I wasn’t really impressed by Wonka’s factory.

"Re-watch - Aug. 7th The drive-in paired this with Beetlejuice, and when I told my daughter she said we had to go. This was my first time seeing Willy Wonka on the big screen, and it was nice to better view the amount of artistic detail that goes into the film. Aside from that my opinion of the film hasn't changed much, and you can find that over here."

You know......for kids! (180 movies items)

"To this very day, the boat ride scene, scares the hell out me, even after the millionth viewing. Also, demises of the kids, were a bit much to take, even if arguably, they were "asking for it", for not paying attention to the rules. But don't worry, they turn out okay in the end, horribly and mentally scared in the end, but still okay. Kind of sort of. And also Grandpa Joe, comes off as kind of a jerk."
