how many more repeats ? what is this , the 6th time in 3 months ? yeah , we got it the first couple of times and the odd few who missed it again had already seen it !!!!!!!!
No wonder they say switch off and tune out lol yawn8:38pm Sat 23 Jun
No Magic The point of the original film was its mystery and magic, this remake has totally lost both, don't bother with it, if you have not seen the original buy it for a couple of quid on dvd, its 100 times better. Depp needs to stick to slurring pirates im afraid. Diss A Pointed2:40pm Sun 17 Jun
self obsesss i think they should av named the film after ME...cos im the BEST Willy wonka7:50pm Mon 3 Jan
What A Film! Fantastic film, it had me laughing on numerous occasions. It would be nothing without Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka... colourfulchaos6:31pm Boxing Day
Depp is on more than bloody corrie stigster4:24pm Boxing Day
come on they had perfection, then they wasted cash on the remake. it is so bad, it went to t.v. after the first showing. dire. Get Real8:27pm Christmas Day
rubbish remake the thing i dont get is why is the indian portraying the umpa lumpas, they couldnt get numerous midgets to play the role, so they just used cgi to make hundreds of umpa lumpas, roald dahl would be very dissapointed with what hollywood have done with his ideas, 3/10 annoyed3:04pm Christmas Day
truly awful I cannot believe anyone gave this abomination of a film a score above 1. Typical hollywood treatment of a great film, turn it into a gay parody of itself Sam8:26am Christmas Day
I love this film!!! I love this film. I love all films starring Johnny Depp. This on is one of the best though, but I do love Pirates of the Caribbean and Sweeney Todd, and Alice in Wonderland, and Edward Scissorhands, and Corpse Bride, and ...... etc as well!!! :) JCD 4 eva11:34am Sun 25 Jul
Johnny Depp I love this film because it stars Johnny Depp!!! :) JCD 4 eva5:28pm Sat 24 Jul
It's ok Mark I agree with your comment, but you do realize that the songs are actually more like the book than the songs in the original? But anyway, this movie is okay when you try to forget about the better original. Me2:27pm Sun 11 Apr
Jacko yes I agree, very unsettling this film. ALmost as disturbing as Wizard of Oz. JRFreud7:03pm Sat 9 Jan
Fails in almost every way This film fails in many ways:
1) bad dialogue (esp. compared to the witty original). Tries to hard to modernise it bad loses the charm of its predecessor.
2) No likeable characters - Charlie just comes across as a sappy kid, Wonka as someone you'd find on a register preventing from coming with 50 feet of a schoolyard. The other kids who are meant to be horrors, are least meant to be likeable in the sense that you like to hate them. I couldn't care about these even to hate them.
3) each section just seems to be thrown up just to show off some special effects. They contribute little to the characters, storyline or emotional involvement and it seems like the director didn't care about any of those things.
4) Willy Wonka's back story doesn't work. The original and the book took the better approach of leaving it a mystery. How CAN you explain how a guy ends up being Willy Wonka? You can't! It's better just to leave the viewer wondering and perhaps using his/her imagination.
I could go on to more but I'm already taking up too much room. Oh and the songs suck! Mark5:19pm Sat 29 Aug
Rubbish Whats the point of this film? It looks pretty rubbish with a weak storyline (regardless of whether its the original or this one). And Johnny Depp reminds me of Michael Jackson in this film.
Pointless waste of money. K6:20pm Sun 12 Apr
yet again yet again the americans ruined a perfectly good movie, "band aid"!. do me a favour america leave brilliant movies alone. blinky5:59pm Sun 12 Apr
not as good this version isnt as good as the first. the first version is much much better ...5:57pm Sun 12 Apr
In the Middle I kind of like this film. I was disappointed at the cinema as I only went to watch it to hear the oompa-lumpa dooba-dee-do song... which never appeared. However, the film has been growing on me ever since and it is a very good film :) Hmm...5:02pm Sun 12 Apr
Love this film. Am I the only one who thinks this version is 1000 times better than the origional? The origional just bored me. Carlos7:30pm Sat 11 Apr
