Weeee. As you may have guessed, I saw above mentioned title today at my local theater. IMO, this movie was closer to the book, I'm not sure how close for it's been some time since I read the book. Overall, I would recommend this movie. It's pretty good, the acting is phenominal, and the whole look just screams Tim Burton (who is one of my favorite directors).

I have to agree with you wally but I'd say he looks more like Michael Jackson. The orginial was good, especially the songs.

I liked the first one a lot more--plus that umpa lumpa got creepy after a while and his voice was so high-pitched you couldnt understand half of what he said.

The original is the BEST!

I rented the VCD to watch it and it was quite interesting. My friend who watched it in the cinema told me that they made the cinema room smell of chocolate to add to the atmosphere.

I never got to watch it original so I can't compare it. The original movie on DVD called, "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" was being sold. I did not want to spend money to buy the costly DVD. However, the orginal book that the movie was based on was called, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".

Johhny Depp looked very sinister in the show. I wished that I could see the original (not spend too much to watch it) to see how the Willy Wonka was like.

From what Iíve heard the original Willy Wonka was much more eccentric then the one in the remake though Iíve never actually seen the remake myself.

I spent $20 and bought the original one on DVD. Now that I have watch both versions, I can compare them.

I agree with you. The original was an old movie so the production and colour quality tended to be like those old movies. The songs were like other musicals. It was nice story, the focus on slightly different. In the original, he only had a mother but in the remake, he also had a father.

Beside liking kid more, Willy Wonka was friendlier in the original as he greeted the kids and parents, welcoming them one by one to his factory.

One thing that I don't like was that Charlie and his grandfather were disobedient in the factory. Then again, anyone visiting the factory might have been tempted to be naughty. Wink It's also interesting to see what happens as a result of this.

The orginal had a few slightly different contraptions in the factory compared with the remake. The remake incorporated more computer generated animation which did make it more exciting and modern compared to the original. The plot also slightly differ at the end. The remake also added more graphical recalling was why Willy Wonka closed his factory.

It's hard to say which is better because they have different settings and were made in a different era. Each has it's own good points. However, one thing that I can be sure is that I like the original songs better and do not like the look of Willy Wonka's in the remake.

As the original and the remake has some differences in the story, I still find it interesting watching the orginal after watching the remake.
